I'm having troubles finding my own threads through search and my profile page. Saying nothing was found Any input?
That's b/c they no longer exist, and it's the second time tons of threads have been deleted...so I wouldn't waste my time posting anything you may need later.
Your threads/posts are still there, and as soon as the indexes are rebuilt, you will be able to see them listed in your profile.
Oh, I see. I was under the impression the server was crashing due to lack of available storage. When that occurs, generally some data is permanently lost...as did happen recently on a Vbulletin based NFL.com message board.
And I really need my gnat control thread in organics, please/TY...tis' the season to kill the little bastards...lol
This sites seen more ressurections than Jesus Christ.
I'm just curious why it is down so much? Are they being hacked? Is our personal info getting mined? Seems like this is at least once a week as of late with lots of hiccups inbetween. Hell, I even got auto-banned and posts deleted when I first started. Whats the dealio oh great Rollitup admins?
We are sorry for the down time and slow response times. We are not being hacked, and your personal info is safe, we take every precaution to maintain a secure site.
We are a very large site, and we are constantly working to optimize the response time. For the past two weeks we have spread our servers to a larger cluster, and separated the search server from the others to speed things up. The search server caused us a lot of problems, and that is why we have had some down time. We are still working out some bugs, most notably with the main forum skin formatting, and soon will have everything running smoothly again. Rollie was also able to restore the Likes system, and the search function should be working, too.
Thanks for your patience!
How about using a service like cloudflare ? Reduced load , faster serving of static resources and a little more security.
As You already know, its free or only 20 bucks /mo if You choose to go pro.
maybe even closing the site so you have to be a member to see anything. protect us a lil more from po po
I was getting database errors all night last night, just FYI.
Let me be the first to thank you brother
What happened to the grow journals?
Please don't tell me likes and rep are gone...those things really helped set riu apart....it also helped in knowing that those giving you advice had experience....ive had issues at other sites with people giving me bad advice as I was also unable to gauge their expertise
Also: I've bee on the site for almost 3 years now but I am a "new member" ?
Here's a good one. A few hours before the site got back up I checked to see how far I could get. I made it to rollitup and sea of seeds. Shortly after I was attacked by a google bot that claimed that I was on rollitup.org and made claims that this site has downloaded malware onto my computer. It offered a shortcut so I could view this malicous content. Whem I hit the tab the only content was a cookie from some cloud server that has to be used to access rollitup. The cookie was put there so I couldn't access rollitup as the googlebot assured me that google has better security than I do and my computer will become infected if I continue to frequent rollitup. I would "like" to say again that the only malware that was on my computer was put there by cloudfare.
