Downtime This Weekend

Update2: And it's been fixed. The front page should be back up and running like normal again. Should be.
UPDATE: So I broke the front page. Then I fixed it, except not really. We're in a fixable situation now atleast, which is progress. Anyway the forums themselves shouldn't have been effected, but as always let Team Admin know if you see something wonky.

The subject says it all really. Orp has some downtime tentatively scheduled in soon, either this Friday or over the weekend (Australian time) so we can fiddle with the backend of the site without everyone seeing the massive cockups we make along the way.

This shouldn't be a major issue, best case scenario the site gets locked down for ten minutes and no one notices anything different. On the other hand, the worst case scenario is I give up half way though, declare the site stupid, that I "never liked roleplaying anyway" and Orp never comes back.

So if you find yourself locked out this weekend, don’t worry. I'm at least 60% sure that Orp will return in a few minutes, no more broken than it was already.

But if you don't need to know about this, why did I post this news? Because now that I've mentioned it, I feel obligated to actually do it instead of just playing ME3 for the third time.

Is the new look for the front page a temporary thing, or is that how it's going to look from now on? Because it's a little annoying not to be able to just go to my control panel from the home page in all honesty.

That's me breaking it. We (read: Gral) are working on fixing it, but it will take some time.

It isn't easy breaking things to the level I have. I had to really work at it.

Ooooooh, aren't you fancy. "Look at me, I'm Gral and I can fix something without breaking three other things" Pft, if you don't have several parts left over afterwards you didn't do it right.

Everyone contributes his/her share. And everyone has his/her role. Everything's as it should be.

Someday I'll figure out how to make a forum correctly. And look, the portal menu is back!

You waited years to be able to say this, didn't you, itches?

I say it all the time.

I'm just irritated by Gral. I'd finally got the front page how I wanted it, and he goes in and changes everything. The broken links and error messages were an artistic choice. The man clearly doesn't understand the first thing about modern web design.

The search field on the front page doesn't work, don't use it. Well I guess you could use it, it just won't do anything. The one in the forum still works fine however.

Let me just say that the front page search function works perfectly.

Let me just say that the front page search function was restored to it's original non-working condition. It was not broken by either itches or myself, but rather has never worked. Ever.

Actually, I think I broke it when I first took over. So I didn't break it this time, I broke is years ago.
