Config Changes

  • Upgrade nodejs to the latest release
    • The version that comes with Ubuntu was pretty old
    • Mostly this will help with performance, but contains a number of bug fixes and security enhancements!
  • Toggled on some additional CloudFlare options to cache more things and cut load times
    • Minify JavaScript, CSS, and HTML pages. Should help a bit with page load times on slower connections.

To Do List

  • Add ranks (just need to decide on ranks)
  • Add an event calendar (plugin is being reworked, so no ETA on this)
  • Twitch.TV widgets (going to see how this looks, don’t want to be too obtrusive)
  • More info around peoples avatars (maybe hover actions?)
  • Make people moderators (like we need those!)
  • Watch for explosions on the server

Gaming events finally added.

It is nice to be updated on what is going on even if I don’t understand it all.

Sir_diealot haha, I try. Most of the updates going forward should just be back end updates. It is fairly low effort for me to just post what I am doing. I like transparency.

Well it is a nice change from the other place where the servers would just go down and you would know nothing. Thank you.
