Announcements / Re: Condemnation of a recent act of vandalism in PA
« on: July 22, 2017, 02:15:55 PM »
Not that I disagree, but how exactly has the "society" condemned this? This is the first I've heard of it.

Instead of fixing the old webchat, I've installed some new, actively maintained, and apparently more mobile-friendly software.

There are still some odds and ends I need to take care of, but nothing that should be visible to anyone else.

The part of the maintenance requiring downtime is complete, and the homepage, forum, wiki and IRC server are back up. The IRC webchat interface still appears to be broken; I'm working on fixing that right now.

The homepage, forum, wiki and IRC will be going offline for up to 2 hours on 2017-06-18, between 08:00 and 10:00 UTC.

For convenience, this means:

EDT (USA east coast):
2017-06-18, 04:00-06:00

BST (UK):
2017-06-18, 09:00-11:00

CEST (Most of Europe):
2017-06-18, 10:00-12:00

AEST (Australia east coast):
2017-06-18, 18:00-20:00


The server will be upgraded to a newer stable release of its operating system. This introduces the risk that problems will arise after the maintenance; in case any are noted, please create a thread in Suggestions & Concerns so that we can deal with it. Thank you.

As SexWarrior said, this really isn't the place to have this discussion. Locked.

The homepage, forum, wiki and IRC will be going offline for about five minutes on 2017-05-23, between 09:00 and 09:15 UTC.

For convenience, this means:

EDT (USA east coast):
2017-05-23, 05:00-05:15

BST (UK):
2017-05-23, 10:00-10:15

CEST (Most of Europe):

We will be updating SMF from 2.0.13 to 2.0.14, which is a larger patch than normal. We will also be taking this opportunity to update the Tapatalk integration code with the latest SMF fixes. While we are endeavouring to test the change as thoroughly as possible beforehand, please report any problems that may arise after it has taken place, either in this thread or in a new thread in S&C (the latter being preferred for bigger issues).

During this maintenance window, we will also be installing security updates on the server which hosts the homepage, forum, wiki and IRC. These will be non-disruptive to functionality, as the server is running a stable OS release that gets critical fixes only.


For details of the changes we will be applying, see these GitHub commits:

Suggestions & Concerns / Re: CN Mobile Formatting
« on: May 17, 2017, 10:50:36 AM »
While we're considering this, it might also be worthwhile making CN more colour-blind-friendly. I know we've had colour-blind users in the past who have complained about the juxtaposed red and green.

Suggestions & Concerns / Re: CN Mobile Formatting
« on: May 16, 2017, 11:37:17 PM »
It's something we're aware of. Blanko is the only one here with decent visual design skills (he made our main theme), and he was going to rework CN at one point, but I think he may have gotten distracted by IRL. Thanks for the reminder, I'll remind Blanko about it if he doesn't see this thread first.

Suggestions & Concerns / Re: Believers section / rank
« on: May 16, 2017, 12:11:42 PM »
This thread is in S&C now. Please try to keep it on topic, everyone.

As has been noted by SexWarrior elsewhere, this hasn't had good results in the past, as it relies on someone (probably the forum admins) trying to figure out who is a "true" believer. That's a very difficult proposition on a forum which encourages playing devil's advocate as a way of examining new ideas.

If consensus is reached that this is a good idea, I will go ahead and set it up. As it stands, this idea is supported by only one person.

The maintenance took longer than expected due to an issue with login credentials for the hosting provider's rescue console, so I couldn't make sure the system came back up. I will be investigating and fixing that tonight.

This maintenance is done.

Don't mean those idiots, I mean the good people.

Okay so you mean "the people who agree with me agree with me, so why do I have arguments with the people who disagree with me?"

Well apart from the reincarnation of Idi Amin (crud), we are all the damn same, so what are we arguing about?

How can you say we're all the same when 3 of the first 4 participants lean towards a free market and you're a socialist?

Thank you for being a disgrace to the human species.

I see my advice has been wasted. Very well, you can have the week-long ban you were promised.

Suggestions & Concerns / Re: Questioning JUNKER as a Moderator.
« on: April 19, 2017, 10:09:44 PM »
junker has not insulted you here, but you are now starting again with the personal attacks. I suggest you quit now if you don't want another ban.

This is going nowhere, so locked.

I was about to agree with you, until I noticed this thread was in Flat Earth Debate. From that forum's description:

Quote
Please note that it is strictly moderated!

If you want to shitpost about how FEers don't know anything, the correct place to do it is Angry Ranting. It would probably be taken lightly in Flat Earth General and Flat Earth Q&A too, though is strictly off-topic there as well. Flat Earth Debate, as the name suggests, is for civil, reasoned debate.

From the forum rules:

Quote
Anyone seen personally attacking another member will be immediately warned. After two warnings, a ban with length determined by moderator discretion will be issued.

You were given precisely two warnings for personal attacks in that thread prior to being banned. Don't play with fire and then complain when you get burned.

At the very most, junker is only guilty of enabling the derailment of that thread by engaging you instead of splitting out your off-topic posts. Given that he's just about the only one maintaining law and order around here, I don't really have anything to complain about. Thanks for your efforts, junker.
