NOTICE TO ALL USERS!

This is a notice to let all FA users know the beta is coming to a close in roughly one week. FA should return to full operations roughly the start of December (no absolute date, but it will be within the first few days). There may a short period of downtime while we switch servers in order to get the system back up and running.

If you have any questions feel free to ask!

In light of that, this is a reminder: ALL CURRENT ACCOUNTS, DATA AND INFORMATION WILL BE DELETED. All of it. No data shall be spared!

Thanks for helping test out the system!

Can that start time also be considered the ETA for the critical bug fixes?
(which include those which were not yet added to the list here, like this one)

Ok, I need to restate what has happened. I went into my FA settings and changed some things. Mostly wanted to see how good the filters worked. So I turned off a few different fetishes and all of the music. Now, if I am not logged into FA, I can see everything just fine. I can even see my account. But once I log in, I can't see anything at all. The page just goes blank and there is nothing on the screen but white. I even tried using the refresh button, clearing my cookies and a few other things. It also doesn't seem to matter what kind of browser I am using. If I am logged in, I get nothing. Anyone got any ideas on what I did wrong and how I may be able to fix this?

Just did the same thing with an alt account, and got the same results.

Yes, we're still working on critical bugs. We updated the list earlier, and fixed some other issues today. We're looking into the white screen bug, but we think it may be related to this being a beta server, it may have been a problem that cropped up during a change.

We did look into it, couldn't figure out what caused it. We'll check into it more, but see what hapens when we're on the real system using the real server, where everything isn't a temp.

It'll miss you, but don't worry, it'll send cards on all the holidays. It'll never forget you.

Will you do it with a temporary database, at least? Since some of these bugs seem to be security problems to some extent, it would seem problematic to leave them unresolved on the final, public database.

Well, seeing that the new site is going to be up and running in a few days I won't really worry about it to much. I'll just know for future reference to never do that again LOL.

If you know how to recreate the problem, let us know!

So what you're saying is, it'll be up sometime in March, right? :lol:
FA will be operational within a week, and our penguin army will be ready to march shortly thereafter.

We've also learned from previous mistakes and incarnations. There will be no admin infighting. More attention to bugs. There will also be no questionable exhaust ports placed at the end of large, inexplicably well defended trenches in which skilled pilots can ultimately destroy our operation with a single photon torpedo.

Yeah sure, and it'll promise to call Me next week, and say that we should get together next weekend for drinks... then hey, things are really busy lately, but next month for sure. And then the phone call never comes. And the cards stop coming. One day though, we see each other at the grocery store and we give a little acknoledging smile... maybe one of those nods. But then, we just go our seperate ways, because we both know, it'll never be the same. And that magic is just gone forever.

...

Anyways, If it launches some time next week, that'd be ideal as I'll have a good batch of My Holiday commissions done and scanned in... ready t'post.

The server got all the parts it was waiting for yesterday, had its new OS loaded up. It should be given a round of tweaking today, and hopefully... get jacked into the system in the next day or so.

Then?

Then we're live.

Gushi reinstalled the server's OS yesterday with his own premium Linux blend, and is making the necessary tweaks and security measures. When he's done, I estimate it will be 2 to 3 days until we're online (if not sooner).

At any rate, it's just a few days at most now. :)

Gushi reinstalled the server's OS yesterday with his own premium blend of Linux and is making the tweaks and security measures on it. When he's done, I estimate it will be 2 to 3 days after and we're online -- which could be today or tomorrow.

WOOOO
