Title: Unexpected Downtime
Post by: SaiKar on October 24, 2010, 05:26:18 PM
Charas was down for a few hours today unexpectedly due to a minor mixup in the admin control panels. After a bit of stewing, raging, and not really knowing what to do, our local technical experts gemini Ben. and Osmose teamed up to identify the cause and fix it. Everything should be fully back to normal.

The staff, usually little more than just forum cops, is compiling the more technical forum-based data so that we can solve issues like this faster and without requiring certain people online. Unexpected downtime may occur again as we tweak the forums and add new settings, but it should be overall for the best and lead to a better, more stable, and enhanced with all sorts of wacky features Charas experience.

its still getting some adjustments.

NEW STUFF:

Profile comments

CSS HTML customise your profile
Upload images to your profile (like a gallery)

The look and whatnot is subject to change yet....

D'you know if coloured names will be shown in threads again?
And I see you removed the dot, yes.

Well, keep up the good work! The new profile page looks pretty good, by the way.
Coloured titles would be neat, too.
