I haven’t forgotten totally about the front page! only mostly
WSO is over a year old at this point, and I’m going to try to give it more attention and the sorely needed polishing it deserves. The first thing I need to do is migrate the site to a larger VPS instance, both because it needs more umph and because the current instance isn’t really set up that great. I also hope to make the site less, uh, loud, and prepare us for the coming update to XenForo 2.0. I’d also like to finally deploy that damn plugin I wrote like, a goddamn year ago, to allow seamless user integration between the wiki and the forum.
Anyway I’ll at least try to keep the news area updated, and maybe get some other people set up in here to write news y’all actually care about instead of me whining about server junk.
The site is starting to come together now, and there’s a few updates and developments I’d like to mention:
- I’ve made a maintenance thread on the forum that I try to update each time the site has maintenance. I’m trying to give at least a day’s warning for things that would cause downtime of more than a mintue or two, but I’m not quite at the point where I can give definite, regular schedules beyond that.
- There’s also a feature suggestion and bug reporting thread, where you can report any bugs you’ve seen and suggest features for the site. I haven’t had much time to implement anything special, but once things settle down I’m going to try to do what I can.
- I’ve created configuration required to allow the wiki to use the forum’s database for user accounts, so you’ll only need to create one account (on the forum) in order to use both the forum and the wiki. It’s still in the testing phase, but when it’s ready I will do my best to port over any existing wiki account information to the forum account equivalent and let everyone know.
- Emails from the forums and wiki should be working now, but I’ve heard scattered reports of some people still not getting their confirmation email. If this happens to you, go ahead and contact me at email@example.com and I’ll get you sorted.
Thanks for flying WSO Airlines and have a nice day ♥
