Sotonians is going down for a while in a while

We’ll be making some changes that mean that the site will need to be down for a short period of time.

See the end of the thread for more details about the reasons while we’re bringing the site down.


#2

Belay that. I’m not entirely happy with things as they stand. I’ll announce a new downtime start time in a bit.


#3

The new time is 18:00 people.

Don’t report any squirliness until about 18:15.


#4

We should be okay now. Soz. Had a couple of problems. It actually took 15 minutes, for once.


#5

I’ve been beavering away on some things to zip things up a little.

Will be putting changes live at around 7pm tonight. Usual caveats about not moaning if things are broken during that time.


#6

We’re back up. Latest Topics and Category views are a bit faster :cool:

Number of upvotes/downvotes listed per topic now reflects all upvotes and downvotes on the topic itself, not just the opening post.

Noticed a small issue concerning people without avatars, and am looking into it.


#7

Just allocate them a picture of a wanger, they will soon sort it out


#8

Yeah, I have fixed that now. If there was any slowness just then, that was me.

People should have default avatars if they haven’t uploaded them.


#9

Just got an error 503

Cheers, BBB. We were on top of it, and I actually restarted the server, giving you your 503; Service Unavailable.


#11

BBB? Pah!


#12

Sorry CB. It has been a trying day on the Sotonians front :blush:


#13

I’ve got some changes that are going up very soon.

Will attempt to be complete by about 3pm. site might be unresponsive or throw an error as we put it up.


#14

And it’s all done.

Major speed upgrade to "Following"

Apologies for any convenience, if there was any.

The Sotonians’ server will be offline for a little while in a little while.

Stand clear of the doors.

Downtime over.

Please mind the gap.


#18

For some reason I read that as ‘please mind the pap’.


#19

Why is there an angry Japan flag on my post?
