Title: Forum downtime & bugs
Post by: NeeNee on October 15, 2012, 01:17:28 AM
I've noticed that sometimes the forum will load a bit slow. However, I'm never quite sure if the problem is with the site or with my computer (a lot of things load slowly for me), and I don't know if it's something structural or just the occasional hitch.

So help me out here. If the forum is down/slow, or if you are experiencing other issues, leave a little message. (Just one message will do. Don't post every five minutes. Also don't post if someone else has already reported the problem before you.) If it turns out the downtimes become too common, I'll update to a paid hosting plan go and complain that I'm paying money for this, or consider upgrading to a higher plan if the site grows too big.

I thought it was just me, but the site loads slowly for me too ^^;

Honestly, it's been hideous. I was unable to access this site last week. Kept on getting "connection error". Would a donation box work well to get money to renew the forum server?

^ I know, I know. I mean, I created a redirect QuickTopic (http://www.quicktopic.com/48/H/jyutTJHwARMN) for it and everything.

I've upgraded to a higher plan, so we should have 99.9% uptime now (starting in 17 hours). If there are any more glitches, do report it, then I will go and complain. I've got the right now that I'm a paying customer. ~_~

Are there any people here who would actually put something in a donation box? If so, I'll ask my technical staff (cough) if it's possible to install such a thing, but it sounds complicated (to do it safely, that is). Alternatively, I can just give you my bank account number.

What sort of prices are we talking for plans here? Just curious.
Title: Re: Forum downtime
Post by: NeeNee on October 25, 2012, 12:22:33 AM
^ I'm paying about €5/month right now.

Nothing dramatic, really, but I might have to upgrade again if the place gets bigger. Plus I'm planning to keep it up for a long time.

Wow, you are paying for the website? Why don't we use free alternatives?
Title: Re: Forum downtime
Post by: NeeNee on October 29, 2012, 04:33:08 PM
^ Because the site kept going down on the free hosting plan.

But if you know of any alternatives that work better, feel free to enlighten me. I'm hardly an expert on this, so advice is always welcome.

Question: Has anyone tried posting in the Takara thread (http://www.theblueknight.host-ed.me/forum/index.php/topic,33.0.html) recently?

Does it work? Because I'm getting an error message, and I'm not sure if the problem is with the forum or just my account. I already made sure we're running the latest updates.
Title: Re: Forum downtime & bugs
Post by: Wikkelsoee on July 03, 2013, 09:06:16 PM
^ We'll probably see some activity there when the new chapter is out. I haven't seen posted in it lately, but I haven't seen an error anywhere else either.
Title: Re: Forum downtime & bugs
Post by: NeeNee on July 09, 2013, 05:14:43 AM
The Takara thread is still stuck, so I made a new one: http://www.theblueknight.host-ed.me/forum/index.php/topic,203.0.html.

Apparently the forum acts weird when you use the combinations "pet .boy" and "pet .girl" (without the dots), so try and avoid those.


Edit:
Looks like this problem has been solved.

ok T T

I'm not sure how to say this, but am I the only one who . . . had problem getting on this site yesterday?

I always typed blueknight.tk in the address bar to get on this web site.
but now if you type this youre redirected to random pages.
I was really worried. I seriously thought it might have got hacked.

anyway, I just found out you can access the site with theblueknight.host-ed.me/forum/index.php

still, whats wrong with blueknight.tk and why is it suddenly not working?
Title: Re: Forum downtime & bugs
Post by: NeeNee on September 07, 2013, 10:50:26 PM
It appears I forgot to renew that link. Thanks for the reminder.

Thankfully, it was just a back-up, and the main link (http://www.theblueknight.tk) still works. You'll just have to type theblueknight.tk for now, then you're good. :)
Title: Re: Forum downtime & bugs
Post by: chinonamida on September 07, 2013, 11:10:15 PM
do you know I spent all day yesterday trying to figure that out T T

I feel stupid now ¬¬


hahahah whatever XD

I got a bunch of problems with my computer at the same time I guess it was to much. gotta take a break from my computer.
Title: Re: Forum downtime & bugs
Post by: NeeNee on October 03, 2013, 12:14:07 AM
http://www.blueknight.tk should work again.

Post by: cottontailcake on July 27, 2014, 10:31:03 PM
I got a 403 permission denied error a little while ago on the main page, but it's resolved itself now (as you can see.)

Time to change the security questions again.

I gotta say, I love this "Delete account and all posts" feature.

Do you know how much work it is to remove a bunch of spam posts one by one?

It's so much easier to just remove the bot and all his posts with him.
Title: Re: Forum downtime & bugs
Post by: chinonamida on July 28, 2016, 06:44:28 PM
Must be.


For a moment back there I was trying to see the link between the two statements. I guess there's none really.
Title: Re: Forum downtime & bugs
Post by: NeeNee on July 28, 2016, 07:13:30 PM
There is. They are both about spambots.
Title: Re: Forum downtime & bugs
Post by: chinonamida on July 28, 2016, 10:59:13 PM
...

I see. ¬ ¬

I thought the security question was an admin thing. I don't remember answering one when I made an account.

How about image captcha instead of just text and audio? I heard it works well.
Though even I fail it sometimes.
Like "select all images with sandwiches" = Failed because I didn't think a hamburger is a sandwich.
Or "select all images with mountains" = Failed because I thought an hill was a mountain. (My standard for "mountain" is pretty low thanks to Mount Royal.)
Title: Re: Forum downtime & bugs
Post by: NeeNee on July 29, 2016, 04:25:20 AM
Right now, I use both captcha and security questions.

Security questions are things like "Who is Rin's twin brother?"

There are several questions, every user gets one at random (on top of the captcha). But even then, bots will get in after a while, so once that happens you have to go and change the questions.

I wasn't using questions yet when you signed up.

I hadn't heard of captcha with images before... I don't think the forum as it is supports them.
Title: Re: Forum downtime & bugs
Post by: chinonamida on July 30, 2016, 07:51:24 PM
It's too bad if the forum can't support them.

If you want to see some image captcha, you can go try to make a post on 4chan.

I hope this isn't annoying, but I think there's spambots here again. The main threads don't seem to have any of them, but they look like they're in the Introduction and help threads. I hope I'm not bothering you, I just wanted to let you know. 
Title: Re: Forum downtime & bugs
Post by: NeeNee on May 31, 2018, 03:27:24 PM
Yeah, sorry, I just got back from holidays.

I cleaned up, should be better now. Don't hesitate to use 'report to moderator' when you see another one.

Hope you had a pleasant holiday!

Yup, I was trying to report as many as I could see, but there was a lot (also didn't want to click the threads for viagra bots while at work).

Is there a way to report a user instead of having to report as spam all the posts?
Title: Re: Forum downtime & bugs
Post by: NeeNee on June 02, 2018, 07:19:09 PM
^ Reporting one of their posts is enough. As soon as I get a report, I will check that user's posts and (if it is a bot) usually remove the entire account along with every topic & post they ever made.

It's more important to report all the different bots, because I might miss them if they only make one or two posts.

I'm talking with someone on tumblr who's trying to make an account here but can't because they aren't recieving the email with the activation link (they've tried waiting, checking the spam folder and using a different email address). Is there something wrong with signing up new accounts lately?
Title: Re: Forum downtime & bugs
Post by: NeeNee on June 24, 2018, 09:42:53 PM
^ There shouldn't be. But I sent everyone a reminder e-mail, just in case.

If it still doesn't work, give me their username and I will activate their account by hand.
