Eating hats is fun.
of Australia ;-)
It will be PST, GMT -8
very nice :D
From one stargate fan to another I always love seeing a stargate recreated and your looks fantastic!
We will be dual stack, including a download mirror, Media/CDN, and our websites.
Should be mirrored shortly.
We are working on having this mirrored ASAP
We tried Cherokee and Nginx. We spent about 2 weeks debugging odd XML/SSL issues with Cherokee, aswell as a number of other issues.
In the end, we would have preferred to use Cherokee over nginx due to its ease of configuration, supposed better performance, soft restart abilities and nifty admin UI, however the bugs we encountered with it forced us to go with nginx - which to it's credit, had 0 bugs, and was quite simple to deploy!
I apologise for the error you received Heaney - there were some glitches that appeared about an hour ago which have been corrected now. If you get an error after submitting an article you can always try to hit reload to re-submit the data which should work.
Thanks for alerting us to this, we'll take a look.
We currently use a CDN operated by Akamai, however it is "sponsored" by our Advertising partner.
We used to operate our own Geo-CDN out of Australia, the US & EU - which we are looking at re-visiting due to the quality of the current video CDN's advertising not being what we are happy with.
Sorry all - the work ended up taking about 3 hours longer than expected - all good now for another 12-18 months :)
There is more capacity which will equal higher speeds.
Sorry guys - we are working to fix the mirroring issues ASAP.
For those who are getting the EU mirror & slow speeds - can you please advise what Country you are in, and your ISP?
We will have an AU mirror very soon :-)
Can you send me a PM so i can investigate?
ModDB house our own files internally. We weren't "reliant" on Filefront for file hosting, so we havent had to run around archiving the ~1TB of data we had hosted with them - it was a "mirror" afterall, not our primary storage site.
Having said that, about 80% of our file downloads went via them - which equates to around 30-40TB a month, or ~120Mbps.
They are evil.
ModDB is in the process of provisioning new fileservers over the coming weeks to help cater for the loss of file serving bandwidth.
Keep an eye on the ModDB Official Blog for more soon.
We are having issues with one of the servers in our cluster. Investigations are ongoing.
I have just made some further changes.
Video and Audio processing is back online.
Image display has been fixed.
Please note that on Saturday morning we will be installing three new front end web / media servers, you may notice some brief interruptions when these are brought online.
hold on to your hats while i tinker with the backend!
Actually, it is imperative you should be running Adobe Flash Player version 220.127.116.11. Anything earlier than this and there are major security holes / vulnerabilities.
PM's were needed over forums so that modDB Staff could better communicate with mod teams, and visa versa.
We have had mods and articles sitting in our "waiting" queue for weeks because people have not responded to their emails. Having an in-house PM system allows us to communicate with mod teams without having to rely on 3rd party email systems, problems, spam filters etc.
Agreed - I expect we will bring back the Game Icons. It makes sense.
Yes - if you have lost access to your mod profile, use the Contact Us page - Moddb.com and send us your mod name / details and we will restore access for you
Yes, Mod Profile comments will return soon :)
I think a direct link to "Find" a mod would be great. We'll see if we can include that in V4.1. I've added it as a feature request in our internal bug tracking system
