Server Upgrades and Downtime

What makes Fwoosh culture? Food, clothes, random thoughts, whatever - this is the place to talk about it.

Going to be ripping the forum down and then apart this weekend, starting tonight. A lot of old posts are getting pruned. Gotta make space and cut down on database size, hopefully easing processes and loads. Definitely tonight, maybe randomly through the weekend if I don't get everything done or think of something else.

Announcement:

2020 sucks, so we're taking the forums back to 2015.

Actually, a table became unstable, which caused the random forum outage over the past few months. I'd repair it, we'd limp along for a few weeks. It finally became a last straw situation with the Target G.I. Joe rage and new Marvel Legends announcements, it just couldn't handle the strain and said, no more. On this day, I shall operate no more. NO MORE! Unfortunately that table had all the posts from the past five years. It was a gradual thing, so even back-ups have that glitchiness.

But, it's probably no secret that I'm a packrat in real life, and that carries over to online too, so I had another version of the forum tucked away. Some swapping took place and I was able to keep everything fairly current (users, structure, forums) except the posts. Upside, even some of the background things that were being problematic work again, can't complain about that. Well, I can't.

So think of it as a new start. Split things up. It's a new forum. Fill it up again.

Looks like the board errors out when trying to edit a post.

Yup, I just ran across that too. It's on the list. Once we get past SDCC I'll have to pick it apart even more and do a full overhaul to the newest version.

If the forum got reset to March why are people re-creating ongoing threads that existed long before then?

Thanks for getting this back up.

Can you reset collecting back five years so I can get all the figures I missed?

We could use the forum time machine to go back to fix all the exclusive pre-order cancellation issues before they happen.

So glad the forums are back. I depend on them to get through the day at work. If I’m not wasting time on The Fwoosh, I’m getting my time wasted at work!

Ya, And TRU would be alive again! I was reading some of the threads and like waaaaaa???? 2015?!!

Can you imagine all the hair pulling and wailing that would be happening if SDCC 2020 were really going on????

Unthinkable!

Thanks for all the work Robo!
