[June 27, 2013] - Some IMG urls causing infinite loop [bug fix]

Overview: We noticed an image shared in one of the topics today caused an infinite loop which would make it nearly impossible to scroll or do anything while viewing the topic. This was due to websites that would redirect images to their front page instead of allowing users to view it (some form of hotlink protection). We decided to forbid these urls from our IMG tags and if we find any others we will also add them to the list to prevent this from occurring again.

Comments: None.

[June 27, 2013] - Optimized Images in Forum [update]

Overview: No more spinning animation when loading images (it was quite annoying!). Images now load on the spot and as you scroll down they will display with a fade in effect. Before, all images would have to be loaded completely before showing but now images will show up as they load, this makes images display faster.

Comments: We may do some more image optimizations in the future. Enjoy!

[June 28, 2013] - Increased maximum characters and images allowed in signatures [update]

Overview: Because signatures are cut off when they are too long, we decided to increase the maximum characters allowed in signatures from 255 to 765 as requested by @FaceFucked. After making images load faster and smoother, we also decided to increase the maximum images allowed in signatures from 1 to 3.

[June 30, 2013] - Username Exploit Fix [security]

Overview: Someone on this site was able to register as "Guest", although we thought we blocked the username initially, the feature was not working properly. The sign up page has been updated to disallow all the usernames we believe are misleading and we've also removed the user "Guest".

Comments: none.

[July 1, 2013] - Quoting someone in a thread with latin characters [bug fix]

Overview: When quoting someone in a thread that contains latin characters like Ä, ä, Ë, ë, Ï, ï, Ö, ö, Ü, ü you would end up on a "General Error" page. We fixed this bug so that the problem does not occur again, you can still use latin characters.

[July 2, 2013] - Mentions not sending alerts (Fix #3) [bug fix]

Overview: We finally found the cause for mentions not sending alerts to some users. This bug occurs when a user would quote another user and tag them in it. Our tagging system would not trigger the mention alerts when you quote another user so that was why users did not receive alerts when quoted. Credits to @Nobody for reporting this bug.

Comments: Keep in mind that when you get quoted and also mentioned in the same post, you will receive two alerts in your inbox.

[July 2, 2013] - Email notifications sent out when mentioned [bug fix]

Overview: We have disabled email notifications for mentions since they were not working properly and there was no way to disable them in the account settings. The links in the emails would lead to a "General Error" page. Thanks go out to @kurumi and @obsessedwithftisland for reporting this bug!

Comments: Please let me know if you still receive email notifications for mentions.

[July 2, 2013] - Server Error when mentioning users [bug fix]

Overview: A bug fix earlier today (announcements/new-features-and-bug-fixes-t1361/page60.html#p223387), caused another bug in which users would end up on a "Server Error" page when mentioning/replying users. This was caused by human error, the demo server had it working properly but we forgot to migrate everything over properly. Kudos to @Korinn3 and @iggyloves for notifying us about this bug.

Comments: Ironic how one bug fix can cause another bug, please let us know if you run into any other problems. ^_^*

[July 3, 2013] - Mentions sending alerts when quoting someone with more than single line of text [bug fix]

Overview: Everything that was done yesterday was working properly except for when you quoted someone who had more than a single line of text in their posts and also had someone tagged in it. This would send alerts to people who were tagged in previous posts which caused some confusion. We fixed it and hopefully that is the last thing we need to do for this mentioning system. ^_^*

[July 7, 2013] - Users rating zeros in selcas [bug fix/exploit]

Overview: Users were able to vote 0's in Selcas and we just released a patch to prevent this from happening. We know all the users who exploited this bug and will be monitoring to see if anyone else tries to exploit it (although it shouldn't be possible anymore). There were a total of 26 Selcas that were affected by this exploit and we are in the process of eliminating these votes and recalculating the ratings. Thanks to @yoonrikai for reporting this bug, excellent catch!

Comments: None.

[July 19, 2013] - Optimized database server and scheduled backups [update]

Overview: The site was getting sluggish and we realized how slow it was today so we jumped on to see what was causing the problem. We believe the issue lies in our database server so we went ahead and optimized it. You may notice the site runs faster now when viewing topics and transitioning from page to page. We also had scheduled backups that would hang the site every time it ran for about 10~20 seconds so we resorted to a different backup method which is less resource hogging.

Comments: Cheers!
