    testing some things.
    gV may break occasionally until this testing is finished.

    made a few changes to apc opcode cache to hopefully increase site performance.
    this could create problems such as cache slamming or various files failing to 'update' if the caching is too aggressive, so we will watch to see how it develops over the coming days.

    testing finished.

    standby for maintenance.
    expect the cache to be dumped and the styles to be rebuilt within minutes. (this is what is happening when gV pages go blank for a couple minutes).
    it may be a good idea to paste comments into a txt document prior to submission until this maintenance is complete.

    standby for maintenance.
    expect the cache to be dumped and the styles to be rebuilt multiple times over the coming hours. (this is what is happening when gV pages go blank for a couple minutes).
    it may be a good idea to paste comments into a txt document prior to submission until this maintenance is complete.

    perhaps of interest to inhabitants:

    made a change to gV which results in activities originating in dev/null not being displayed on 'whats new'. note that 'whats new' is stored in a data-cache, so the result of this change may not be immediately (in)visible to all.
    threads that are becoming 'toxic' will be moved to dev/null. what is toxic? any thread that generates a disproportionately high number of reports is toxic, for one.
    two threads ('axe to grind' and 'rl stalkers') have been moved to dev/null.

    on the topic of reports, the following types of reports are only clogging up the report queue:
    'he is lying about x'- people lie. the mcp is not in a position to validate all claims made in all posts on gV, and cannot be expected to moderate lies.
    'he posted an email/im'- the mcp cannot be held responsible for your lack of judgement. be careful what you tell people.
    'he threatened to beat me up/said he hopes i die'- welcome to the internet. this is quite different from a death threat, which is something that should be discussed at some point.

    the constant talk of rl disclosure is not something we particularly like. it is suggested that inhabitants refrain from this sort of discussion. notice there is no infraction for rl disclosure...

    • fixed a tapatalk bug that affected search.
    • updated the front page to possibly allow inhabitants to rearrange (drag & drop) the page elements as a personal preference.
      please test this functionality here. if all goes well it will go 'live' soon.
    • various minor fixes here and there.

    • we have decided not to update core to xf 1.0.2.
    • xf 1.1 has been announced as a 'summer release'. amongst other things (many which we have already implemented independently), it will include a comprehensive ignore system.
    • a bug has been identified regarding ban notices on profiles. the date displayed is not correct.

    have identified a problem with the gV web server that results in bouts of downtime.
    at this point, the easiest solution is to move from apache to nginx. this maintenance is scheduled to begin in one week.
    more info coming as that day approaches.
