Topic: Site down for maintenance - from 4pm PST Friday 13th
Posted: 12 Jan 2017 00:13

In light of today's outage, we need to install some new hard drives on our database server.

This maintenance will start around 4pm PST and could take upto 3 hours. It can take that long to clone 300gigs.

Maybe if Sprite deleted one of her photo albums we could halve that time 😁

I know t hat now lush must charge to be member because you have so many members and although i uerstand the need to charge
why do you keep all those who haven't even posted here in years? i have seen people on friends lists that not seen here for years

We have to enforce paid membership on things that costs money. So think image uploads, PM's etc these all incur a cost be it storage or backup space.

In fact the server went down today for ~4 hours because we ran out of disk space on the database server. We are having to double our disk space on that server now to accommodate future growth.

Wow, I have never been so close to a Magical_felix outburst before. All of the positiveness of these posts have been brought down in one fell swoop by your petty grammatical pickup. This remark was uncalled for.

Might I suggest you reboot your 2017 and show us the new Magical_felix. Grow some empathy, love & feeling, ditch the hate and sarcasm.

Are both sides of the collaboration eligible for the badge, or only stories for which the collaborator is not the "author of record," so to speak?

The way is is today, a story has a single author but can have multiple co-authors. Its these co-authors who are credited with the Collaborator badge.

Does it make sense for the author to also receive this? I guess?

Is there a way that the blue site can have some of these new features too?

Done

I think the "Collaborative" badge would be a great one. It throws the author who's not the author of record a little bone, and it also might inspire some fun collaborations. It's very easy to hunker down and get in a certain rut, writing your own stuff (nothing wrong w that), but I've had a lot of fun and learned a lot in my three collaborations, all of which took different forms, w VirgoGo.

That is, the badge might produce a very positive kind of response as people who are motivated by such things (me included) look to earn it.

The new badge should be available now to the lucky recipients. Now with any new badge, its surely going to annoy the current crop on Omni holders lol

Give 'em a badge too. You know people love badgers :)



I think you're just after the "Inventor of new badges" badge

don't know how long it's been around, but being able to see the "stories coauthored" by the author whose page you're on is very cool!

added 5 minutes ago, the paint's still wet lol

Can we have an opt-out for the 'sound an alert when a friend logs on'? As far as i know, this alert is triggered regardless of your privacy status. I know if you're on a PC you can press shift when you log on and this keeps you anonymous, but that's not possible on a phone, which is what i usually use. Sometimes i log on for a fleeting moment, and then i'm away again, so the alert is pretty pointless, except for making me look ruder than i am :)

thanks x

i'm sorry Jen, that incessant beeping is probably caused by me <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/embarassed.gif" alt="Embarassed">

i have added a checkbox to the login page so you can go incognito from your mobile device, does this help?

I would love an easily accessible toggle switch that would allow me to disable all images that appear on the site. I suspect this would only work for premium members, since for this to make any sense, you'd have to be able to browse the site ad-free to begin with.

I know various types of images can be disabled in settings (forum signatures, for instance), but I see enabling and disabling those pictures as more of a long-term or permanent setting depending on your general preferences. They require some digging and navigating. The idea would be that this would be an easily changeable and universal on/off switch, a bit like the "visible/invisible" or "away/available" online status choices.

I generally like the images on the site, but when I check out the site on my phone in a reasonably public place, I'd like to know that nothing untoward is going to pop up on my screen. (E.g. I'm on a bus or train and I want to check out my timeline or something).

So this would make disappear avatar images, the pictures on stories, images on forums, pix posted to one's profile, etc etc.

Thanks for considering it!



have you tried this setting? maybe there are a few areas this doesn't work on, but if so let me know so i can fix it up.
