  1. And we're back! Sorry about that folks. A failed backup on a different service was causing I/O issues here. With that resolved hopefully loading returns to normal.

  2. It's just down ever since some of our DDoS proections we put into place the other day. I'll have tinker look into this some more.
  3. So I wanna preface this with this: I'm thankful that everyone was caring and offered lots of help and showed a lot of concern for the site. We weren't hacked, DDoSed or anything like that really. We just experienced a symptom of old age it turns out! To get into a bit of technical stuff, we actually lost both of the main hard drives (SSDs) in the main web hosting server on the same day. To put this succinctly: This kills the server. After spending a day diagnosing the issue, the ops team and I were ready to submit the case to our hosting provider OVH and let them start replacing the parts.

    resolved 502 Gateway constantly appears

    @RainbowDashFan124 Unfortunately it's more or less usually because our forum software is locking up several php-fpm threads, it's really only gotten bad on this update that we're on and we're looking at upgrading again here soon and we'll see if that resolves it.
  5. Iceborne can't come to PC soon enough Happy hunting to all of the console players that get to experience it first!
  6. This weekend was fantastic and I'd like to thank everyone who met up with us at the con for hanging out and contributing to the great time! I hope I can see you all again and I hope I see some of the rest of y'all at whichever con I can get to next!

    I'd especially like to thank @Jeric @Dark Horse and @PathfinderCS for helping me out on such short notice since my plans got cut short and I almost missed it this year. I had a wonderful time and everyone I met was positively wonderful to talk to and I hope everyone shares the same experience!

    resolved Status updates are blank.

    We're on it. The latest forum update undid several of our fixes unfortunately as IPS hasn't fixed the bugs yet in their mainline release.
  9. All of our custom plugins that drive the economy and class systems.
  10. While I've already responded on Discord, I will go ahead and mirror that here for the users on the site who don't visit the Discord. This server is not being updated past 1.12.2 because currently I'm the only staff working on it and I'm still in the process of getting us ready for 1.13. The newest updates are off the table entirely right now until the main developer has the time to update the custom plugins our server uses.

    Who is going?

    I should be going, either with Jeric's group or with AppleDash's.

    The site's search engine will be a lot less useful for a little while (It's limited to just one day's posts in its search results), since the latest update broke how it handles searching the db. We're working on a potential solution, but it's gotta stay like this until we have the solution ready! In the meantime, you can still search our site using Google/Your Favorite search engine.
  14. This should work now

      Yeah, but it wasn't that bad I suppose. :P

    I moderately agree with this one, this is your only post, so no history would be lost. Have a nice day, this will likely be the last notification you get from here.
  17. First off, I'd like to apologize for having the site unavailable for so long. We encountered an issue with the database locking up last night during one of our nightly backups and were forced to restart one of our host nodes as the process had gone into a non-interruptible state. While I did make an attempt to do a graceful shutdown of all of our services before this (Aside from the process that couldn't be exited) unfortunately I forgot to sync the disks when I did so so we lost our cache configuration for about 10 hours. In the process, the mail server also failed to start back up properl
  18. Yes, everything's fine. We just had a mishap regarding an outage on another part of the node that required a server restart. When it came back up, a couple of important files got caught up in the mess. Everything should be back to normal now, though we're looking at how to minimize various problems in the future and a possible solution to prevent what happened to cause the outage earlier from happening again.
  19. It does not affect us. We're based in Canada, we're not in the jurisdiction of the EU, and just like US copyright law we don't abide by foreign copyright laws (So we ignore DMCA requests, etc too). We do however follow GDPR as a courtesy to EU residents, dealing with GDPR complaints is a bit more complex and has a bit more international weight than Copyright claims. As far as we're concerned, we abide by Canada's Notice and Notice policy where the ISP (Poniverse/MLPF) in this case forward notices to users if action is being taken against them, and remove content once we receive a court order.
  20. My first view was that they were weirdos, and that ponies were a weird thing to be into, but then a couple of my friends pushed me into it during a break in one of our classes. I had no idea they were into it beforehand so it took me by a bit of a surprise and so we watched a few episodes before school was let out. I'd already watched a bit of the earlier parts of Season 1 with my sister, but they eventually got me hooked by introducing me to some of the early fanfiction and some of the fandom's songs and I was drawn in shortly after.
  21. I'm honestly not sure how we'd even troubleshoot that, are you sure no browser plugins are causing this? I'd suggest trying to use the forum in a different browser or incognito to test.
