Just a small update
« on: April 06, 2020, 12:45:34 AM »
So we changed servers today.  There was a bit of downtime, which will have varied based on propagation speeds.

Everything should look more or less the same.  We actually upgraded to a newer version of SMF though, and I just ported all the users, messages, plugins, etc.  So if something isn't right, let me know.  The only change I've noticed is that some of the BBCode buttons aren't broken anymore.

Chu is now hosting our archive over at http://archive.cutey.zone/.  We've split things up on different servers to try to maintain best security practices.  You can thank chu for spending half the day getting that set up for us.

Otherwise all should be as was before.  Happy fnuposting.

hmm i wonder if email stuff is broken? i sent an email to myself via the forum interface, lets see if it comes through....

also the archive mentioned in the first post is not working (at least for me). it was working yesterday but we set it up before cook changed hosts, so maybe cook needs to configure something on the new host?

I've made a change that should make the archive link more reliable, and am working on the email issue now.

I've set up an SMTP account for mail and it seems to be working now.

Or if you're asking why I left, it's because I wasn't satisfied with the uptime, and they jacked up the prices this year without so much as a word.

I've installed a new honeypot plugin and added a question to the signup process.  We'll see if that cuts down on Russian spammers.

StableHost, right?

I think mine went from $10 to $11, what were you getting?

Not sure if this is what Ducko was saying/the reason he can't remember how, but I'm unable to access the admin panel like before to access the news. (The button is missing and going to the page directly and putting in my password says I don't have access.)
