    Site Issues

    The cert does get renewed automatically, but there's an error where certain pages serve the old cert instead of the new one. I restarted the server, hopefully it clears up any cache!
  2. Hopefully this is fixed, let me know if you still have problems
  3. Despite what rumours are being spread, we do care about spam, and do want to reduce it as much as possible. The site has not been hacked, it's simply seeing an uptick in spam since we removed the quiz for the upgrade. I would love to fix this up soon, although it's quite time consuming to find the best option. In the meantime I've always been an advocate of bringing on more staff to cope while we sort it out With regards to STLVNUB, I won't publicly comment unless they waive privacy - we apply the rules equally and hopefully in the best interest of our users and staff

    Very much so, they rarely take the time to have humans pass

    I can see the new cert here, not sure what's up I'd like to reimplement the quiz, but that will have to wait until after exams

    Might be time for some new moderators
  10. Sorry about that, fixed!
  11. I've been through that thread twice now, and all I can find is words of encouragement and our staff wanting to know when your site would be back online: "Good luck!/The Forum are amazing, congrats for your efforts!/Congrats for all efforts of OSXLatitude crew". That's hardly the ridicule of which you accuse them On a related note, I remember we too had issues with the utf8 converter and a legacy character encoding that littered "?" over our content. @smx was a rockstar and helped me build our own converter that was much more robust at fixing character issues Yes, we are working hard fixing things up! We moved servers last week, and the performance has been significantly more reliable than in the past. You can see a really nice downward trend on the site loading time I've also been fixing up several skin issues that were on the TODO list, and have a few ideas percolating on an improved front page. On my current TODO list is to: (1) restore the chat, (2) improve the rules page to be simpler, (3) redesign the homepage, and (4) finish fixing the theme issues From a management perspective, running this site is significantly more complex than your own since we do not own the site. This means until last week we didn't have access to the live server, we can't make revenue/ads changes, can't make large changes without some oversight and overall have significantly less control over our future. We do the best we can given the resources we have, and I do believe we are on the right track going forward This site has been through quite the history behind the scenes, and in some ways it's amazing we're still here :p I always appreciate specific actionable feedback . I'm not sure about video width embedding - having it resize based on the users monitor seems the most intuitive, although I do have a small screen so they are usually quite narrow and natural. Any recommendation on the width?

    It could be that large threads have more issues, the Clover general thread is quite impressive in length! :p I'm also running a cleanup tool in the background to prune old unused accounts so that may affect the performance somewhat Did you have trouble posting here?
  13. By default they are like that IIRC, but our theme repositioned them. Not a bad change, might need to tone down the green a bit so it isn't overpowering, so I'll add it to the todo list Updated the line-height!
  14. We could try reducing the line spacing a little bit, the content does get too much spacing, especially the signatures
  15. The sidebar shouldn't be visible on mobile at all!
