L-Lawliet | Is there anything we can do to stabilize the server? - Posted on 2009-03-22 16:51:00

So is there anything we can do as a community to at least stabilize the nutang server? What exactly is the problem here?
Everytime the server is down, there's no detailed report on what happened, which makes us all blind sheeps waiting to graze on shit.
No offense but IMHO, if dave is on and off frequently then it's only right if he passes the baton to someone else who can fix technical errors ASAP, if not appoint someone and give him the admin power.
I believe that the community previously had a discussion on the potential ways to attract new members, with regards to that, stabilizing the server is definitely the minimum we can and should do.
New features and other stuff comes after that.
Alternatively, if there's anything I can do to help out, please approach me, and with my best of efforts I WILL help out.
I am more than happy to help and make Nutang a stronger and bigger community actually, but first I need to know what exactly is the source of problem we are facing. As members for years already, we should all be allowed to know.

And I am fully aware that there have been complains and mini arguments sparking around the community with regards to this.
I won't say who's right or wrong but answers like "if you don't like it here then leave by all means" is a no no.
There are people that have been blogging here for like years, you can't just expect them to abandon their blog and start afresh.
Instead we should all face the problem instead of avoiding it.
I know the community is small and all but there is something we can and should do.

First question is, why is there frequent breakdowns in the server. Is it due to money or simply just the host problem? Is there anything we can do to help?

Second question, I have friends with popularity points not moving at all. What is the source of this problem? What can we do to help?

Thank you for reading this.

Hey all,
So, someone tipped me in on this thread and advised me to read it. A few thoughts and clarifying comments...

1. NuTang's an open forum and constructive feedback is encouraged. I don't feel there were any inappropriate comments directed towards me--however, I feel L's derisive comment to Nuttz was unnecessary and shouldn't be tolerated.

2. To add some clarity to the server issues we seem to oftentimes experience... the server is under attack by hackers, spambots, and other malicious online fiends. The disabling of the member pages was a result of a hacker uploading a spamming script to the server. I have spent a number of hours in the past trying to trace the security hole, but have had no luck. Downtime in the past largely has been due to this same issue... i.e. hackers infiltrating the server and bringing it down w/ their scripts/bots.

3. In transferring over admin rights... From a programming standpoint, I have given Praetorian a full copy of NuTang's source code for him to develop upon. I have not given him direct access to the server, because, in the near term, I plan to act as an intermediary QA (until I am comfortable enough with the code). All code that Praetorian has sent me, I first check on my local server, before uploading to the live server. I think this is a tedious, but necessary safety precaution.

I believe in your judgment, dave!

Also, I wish I knew why hackers must be so mean. :(

Thanks dave.

I'll stand by all decisions you make.

Some people just enjoy havoc. I know I get a little kick out of it.

Why must they wreak it on us though? D:

No reason, probably. Just they we're vulnerable.

I guess that at least nobody has been personally attacked.

Haha, at least, not by the hackers.
