    Planned Downtime Coming Up Tomorrow

    Update: Everything appears to have gone according to plan, and took approximately 1 hour to complete. Let me know in this thread if you have any problems or concerns!

    Hey all! In roughly 22 hours from now (November 4, roughly 3 AM Pacific Standard Time) I'll be bringing the site down for a little maintenance. This is the first of one of at least three major updates coming in the next month or two. This is what I plan to do with this update:

    • Multiple security updates/upgrades to the core vbulletin installation and multiple site add-ons
    • Replacing the IRC page (which is now unsupported by its developer) with a new script that is way cooler.
    • Super duper paid-for increased spam protection!
    • For the first time in over a year, Facebook integration for registration and logging in will be re-enabled Disabled again, because it was breaking registration. Hope to fix it soon.
    • Typing in http://www.runicgamesfansite.com will no longer take you to http://www.runicgamesfansite.com/content/ . This is for SEO reasons and takes the longest to install.
    • The Torchlight 1 Mods database will now have friendly URLs with mod titles in them. All old links should be automatically redirected to their new location. And now this too is disabled, because it broke the site's caching for that section. Looking for a fix for this too, but if you saved any of the URLs while it was on they will still work.


    If you're a night owl or international, and want mods during this time, you should be able to download mods using HotSpot, although the summaries will not appear during site maintenance.

    Once the maintenance is over you can report any problems you find in this thread. See you then!

    Ok then, Enabling Facebook broke registration, so I disabled it again. Going to look for help though. For some reason it was forcing people who tried to register, or sometimes even just clicked the Register button, to log in to facebook before it could complete. Will look for a solution to this before turning it back on.

    Another update, had to disable the mods database friendly URLs for now, because it seems that when it was turned on it was disabling the site's caching and overloading the MySQL database with connections. The server handled it so well you'd never know, but I still have to deal with it. Going to look for a fix.
