Hi everyone!  We're back up and Craftster has been moved to new servers.  There are bound to be a few little bugs and kinks to work out so if you see anything weird or broken, we'd love it if you''d let us know.  Thanks! Leah

Here are the statuses of some known issues:

1. Single quotes (i.e. apostrophes) in posts get repeated twice. Fixed!

2. You will need to go into your Profile and fix your timezone since the new server is on PST rather than EST.
To do this:
- click My Craftster > My Profile > Look and Layout Preferences
- Where it says "Time Offset:" click "auto detect"
- then click "Change Profile" at the bottom


3. Clicking the "Show Images Only" tab gives funky results. Fixed!

4. Spell check not working. Fixed!

5. We need to increase the file upload size allowed in Craftster's picture hosting. Fixed!

6. Intermittent server errors. Fixed as of Mar 16 (hopefully!)!

7.  Mar 6: Unable to access the search deamon. Fixed!

8.  Some members not receiving all or any reply/PM notifications.  (Sample of members affected: gammykatie, Burgz, Aikibookworm) Fixed!

9.  Mar 16:  Board organization is jumbled. - Fixed!



UPDATES:

We expect to experience some brief outages tonight/over the next few hours as we tweak some settings in our new home.  Sorry in advance for the delays, but it shouldn't take too long.  We expect this will resolve many of these random issues we've been experiencing.

We are definitely going to re-enable the full version of "Show all topics started by this member," but it may not be done today (Monday, 03/15).  The gremlins are still tweaking this one.  We'll update when it's fully available once again.

Thanks for all of your reports, feedback and information through this transition.  We really appreciate all of your help (and crafts Grin).

Today, Tuesday March 16, at 4 PM PST, Craftster will be in maintenance mode for approximately two hours.

During this downtime, our team will gently capture the gremlins and have them transported to a fabulous forever home far away from Craftster.  They'll be safe and much happier in their new home.

At the end of the downtime, we should be much more stable once again [and gremlin-free]. Smiley



Hi all!

This is just a brief note to let you know that tomorrow, Thursday February 25, 2010, from approximately 10:00 AM PST to 1:00 PM PST we will be transitioning Craftster to new servers.

During this time period, Craftster will be in read-only mode which means that all parts of Craftster will be accessible to read to your hearts content but you will not be able to post messages, pictures, send PMs etc during the transition. So please plan accordingly if you have swap communications you want to make, etc.

We apologize for the interruption and hope to get the transition done as quickly as possible! Any crafts you can make and offer as sacrifice to the "server-move gods and goddesses" would be helpful! I believe they are partial to all forms of macaroni glued to paper plates. Cheesy

Thanks!

Just curious, will I need to do anything to bring Craftster back up after this happens or will it just work like it always has.  I have no computer skills at all and I'm not even sure what moving servers entails.  I'm just wondering if I should have someone with a brain here tomorrow afternoon to help me.  Thanks

Good thing I will be at work during this transition tomorrow Smiley  I will be on lunch likely right in the middle, and I will wanna check Craftster on my break and post n stuff....damn....gu ess I will have to hold myself in reserve until I get home.

Maybe I can convince the catering company that sets up for lunch that they need to bring me some uncooked macaroni and I can craft something during lunch instead....we already have paper plates available and I have plenty of glue at home I can bring!  LOL!
