  1. Yea that's what I thought too, but same here, links workin fine for me as well. Guest, I'm going to give this ticket 3 more days, and close it, given that the link seems to be working. If you're still having problems, please provide a link before the weekend.
  2. If you can provide a link to the thread you're talking about, I'll scan some older database backups and see if I have a copy. It's possible that the author either deleted it or merged it with a larger thread.
  3. Square Avatars?!  That's right.  Check the themes ?

  5. ____/ HOSTING UPGRADES Finally, after a long string of bugs problems and downtime, we've dropped Bluehost and moved on to zFast. The last details of the migration have been wrapped up, and we're able to restore the site to it's full form. We've also added Cloudflare as a Content Delivery Network, which caches the site's data in 152 data centers around the world for quicker delivery. Aside from making the site faster, it makes us more secure by adding an additional layer firewalls and proxies. This also seals and burns the logout bugs coffin. That issue was being caused by Bluehost's caching system, which could not be permanently disabled, (disabling it would usually last about a week). ...I'm trying to refrain from ranting about it and all the problems and downtime with them. ___/ VISUAL UPGRADES • Why did stuff look stripped down? ~ Well, in dealing with the most recent bugs and downtime, we disabled all 3rd party plugins to narrow down the process. Now that everything is solved, we can return to normal functioning. So the look now, is basically like us getting back to zero after coping with Bluehost. • Widget Layout ~ If you haven't noticed the new widget layout... well then I don't know what to tell you but it's probably chronic. New widget layout, brought back the member widget on the forums page, put The Muthafuckin Fawn widget next to the news board, and added in a Recent Posts widget. • Board Icons ~ We now have a new set of mostly anime themed board icons. Those buildings were... yea sorry about that. • Profile Pages ~ The member profile page has gotten a mild overhaul. You can now click on a members cover photo to view the full image. • Star Ratings ~ The topics list in the forums now show the star ratings, if a topic has been rated. (They glow if you hover on them ?) • Site's Main Banner ~ Now plays nice when shrunk down. • Custom CSS ~ ... I created a little over 2200 lines of custom css (styling) at various places all around the forum, most of which was revealed at x-mas time, but I've since updated a lot of it. I'm continually plugging away in the background tweaking little visual problems, trying to make everything look good. • Square Avatars ~ There is a new theme available (bottom of page, "theme"). It's a clone of the default Deviant theme, except with square avatars. Visually, things will continue to be designed around the round avatars, so it may look a little strange in places, but it's at least an option now. ? ___/ NEW STAFF TICKETS SYSTEM • Report to staff button at bottom ~ We've got a new contact staff system. Rather than that button emailing everyone on staff, it now links to the [ STAFF TICKETS ] sub forum in the Staff HQ. Guests are allowed to post there, however new topics require staff approval before the topic becomes visible and any responses are allowed. And all completed topics will be locked. Which means guests will only be able to comment on their own tickets, after it's been approved as a security measure. ___/ WHAT'S NEXT? • The Ikemen Dojo ~ Is currently in the middle of a refurbishing. Keep an eye out. @RodKnee and @TheFclass97 have been doing a freakin incredible job with it, hosting live tourneys Which EVERYONE should keep an eye out for and participate in, cause they're sweeet! Here check out the last one, the June Thumb-Fu tourney There's basically no way to resist wanting to get in on that.
  6. The exterminator is running a process on the back end, all the images should return shortly.

  7. Hello there! I hope you have been well! <3 Shoot me a message when you get online, I'd love to catch up and see how you have been!

  8. Welcome back everyone! 
    We're really sorry for the downtime, which turned out to be a bit longer than initially expected.  I'll make a post explaining what happened soon.  For now, we're just keeping an eye on everything and making sure the problem is in fact solved.  

    As an additional measure, all plugins are disabled, so that's why the site looks a little stripped down.  They'll be kicking back on in 3 day intervals, for safety testing purposes.

    Thank you yet again for your patience while I pull my hair out and mail it to Bluehost.  My apologies for any inconveniences caused by the downtime, it sucks I know.  No fun for anyone.   Rest assured as per usual when things like this happen, we work our assess off to fix it as quickly and thoroughly as possible.

    For now, I hope the increased speed and security provided by our new CDN is noticeable, and you can expect a full explanation soon.  Happy Mugening Fellas.

      Happy days are here again...



  9. Hey, we're back.  Again.  Still not exactly sure what caused the downtime.  

    Bluehost's tech support does not know, IPS is currently being talked to,  and I'm peeling through error logs and system logs trying to narrow down the cause to prevent it in the future.  

    My apologies for the downtime.  I'll keep everyone posted as progress towards a diagnosis is made.  

  10. Hot damn @CoolAnimeHustler that's a lot of suggestions. I must say, it warms my little monkey heart to see all these un-ranked megalithic talents up for promotions :) After some consideration by staff the following people have been approved for Creator: @Ultra Fatality @Dj Luke @DS12 Productions @ELECTRO @NEON 7 @★Tsukasa_Mike★ @Betalille @RMaster007 @deathlazer Congrats gents, welcome to the ranks! You're now all officially Creators! Prepare yourselves to fend off requests to make every favorite obscure character out there :) Not (yet) approved for Creator rank . Deoxgigas Wolf_Stak Wild Ram Strong FS These guys all show great potential, but they haven't been around long enough, or created enough content. ...or released it here at least. If any of you 4 are reading this, Excellent work so far. Keep it up and you'll have your creator rank in no time. Also it is ok to nominate yourself for a rank, if you think you've earned it. You'll be reviewed same as anyone else. Anyway, thanks again CoolAni for bringing some unsung talent to light!

  12. ~ FOURTH PRESENT UNWRAPPED! FINALLY! ~ LIVE GAMING LOUNGE IS LIVE! I know the suspense was unbearable, but alas... the mystery of the 4th and final present has been revealed. The Live Gaming Lounge has gotten a complete rebuild and now has chat, voice chat, popout jitsu, a live widget on the timeline, a stream calendar widget that notifies up to a week in advance, the ability for everyone who participates to help grow one another's channels, and a complete set of detailed instructions for how to use everything in it. The purpose of the LGL extends beyond mere general gaming madness however. It's secret relevant purpose is to give members a place to demo and discuss games for potential sprite / sfx ripping for future Mugen creations. It's also packed up and moved out of the forums and is now... I believe the proper term is stomping through the clubs. Check it out here! A quick note about Chatpod being returned for store credit. A couple members pointed out that it was redundant, and they were right. It was. We have a Discord server for all our chatting needs, and the forums timeline displays All the activity here. So yea, the Chatpod was basically a useless drain on server resources, and has appropriately been dropped. Why did I do it in the first place? I originally got the chat for (teaser alert) an update to the Ikemen Dojo and LGL. The Dojo's development fell behind schedule (currently nearing completion), and at the last minute I realized I could make the Chatpod instead. So it was essentially me trying to cover my own ass and come through on my promises, but it was a rushed last minute idea. And a bad one. Sorta like that x-mas gift you buy the night before christmas eve. And so I apologize for the flopped gift. Anyways, uh back to how sweet the new LGL is! Here's some screenshots. BEFORE AFTER And here's a look at the features: Aaaand this concludes this years showering with gifts. I know they were late as hell, please just know that it was not due to a lack of effort. About 90% of all my free time in the last 3 months has gone into these features (and the dojo), things just did not go quite as I'd planned. Learned: in the future to make sure these kinds of things are done before I go promising release dates. As Ryon eloquently put it, it's valentine's month already, there's only one kind of stocking getting stuffed now. So I hope you all enjoy the presents, put em to good use, have some fun with em, whatever makes you happy that's what they're here for! Cheers and happy belated as fuck holidays!

    Demo Event

    Demo of a non-existent upcoming stream. Valentines day, I will not be streaming a Skyrim 100% completion speed run. Feel free to not show up and check it out, at not-happening o'clock. This is just here to show off the calendar notification feature, which works just like making any other post. Except you can add a date, time and a cover photo. They can be commented on too. (The calendar was disabled while we were trying to narrow down the bug.)
