Welcome to the New Server!

4 posts in this topic

I placed an order for a new server. If you notice the site is shut down for a while, it is because of the server move. This could happen later tonight or tomorrow. I will update this topic once before the server move and again after it is done.

The differences between the servers:

 

Old server: Shared server with shared resources. Over 400+ websites on the same server. 8 CPU cores.

 

New server: VPS (Virtual Private Server). We have an entire section of a server dedicated to us. Only my own sites on it. 24 CPU cores with 1GB dedicated RAM just for us. ;)

 

Older server response times:

      The gallery has been a bit underused over the past year and it might have to do with the fact that I never increased the gallery upload amounts since my initial testing of it. If thats not the case, then oh well, I increased the limits!
       
      AC Elite members can now upload 100 MB of images. The max file size of uploaded images are now 4 MB per image. If you have pictures over 4 MB, the server will deny the upload because I don't have any software in place to auto shrink down an image.
       
      Regular members can now upload 20 MB of images with a max file size of 2 MB per image.
       
      Feel free to upload images to whatever category you have access to as long as the image actually belongs in it. For example, you have a good walking dead image, post it in that gallery if you want to. You can also make your own albums and upload whatever images you want to share.
       
      You can have public, friends only or private galleries. But keep in mind, only upload appropriate images. No vulgar, offensive, etc. images. Also, private albums aren't necessarily private as administrators can access them.
       
      The gallery albums are very useful if you want to upload your own smilies or other images. Once you upload an image to your own galleries, you can click the "My Media" link anywhere on the site where you can make a comment and click to add any image you have previously uploaded to your posts.

      On Tuesday 06/04/2013 @ 2:59AM EDT, the server will be offline for 1-3 hours due to a server move. To clarify, we are not moving to a new server. The actual physical server we are on is being moved to a new location in the data center.

      There is a new "Recent Topics" list that shows the latest 5 posts (topics or replies) on the board index. This will auto-update itself every 30 seconds to indicate if new posts have been made.

      The new "Light" theme is up! As of this post, all the old themes have been removed and the "Perfect Dark" theme has been renamed to just plain "Dark" because I am done with the different variations I was testing out. The light theme has a few issues with it at the moment, but it will be getting an update in about a week. Enjoy!
