Important Administrative Notes

Posted June 26th, 2013 at 02:21 PM by truth
About the recent downtime

Heroscapers has been down for several hours on several occasions lately. While we work on the problem, effective immediately, you will no longer receive most email notifications from Heroscapers. The only exceptions are:
  • PM received notifications, and
  • verification of your email account for new registrations or when you change your email address.
This means, among other things, that subscribed thread notifications will no longer occur. We are unsure exactly how long these will remain off, but it will be weeks.

Secondly, and importantly, it is possible that we will have to take Heroscapers offline abruptly and for extended periods of time. We are of course working to avoid this from happening. Should this happen, rest assured we will be working to return ASAP.

During those outages, because the site is down, it is difficult to communicate to all of you what's happening. To help with that, we will try to post status updates to the newly created Twitter account @heroscapers. You do not need a Twitter account to see those updates. Just bookmark https://twitter.com/heroscapers and check there to find out what's happening.

No need to panic here. This is a temporary situation and we are working through a plan to enhance the reliability of the site. Eventually all of this will be sorted out.

Thanks for the heads-up, I am now following the page so I'll get updates. Whatever is good for the site long term is good for me.

Nobody panics when things go "according to plan." Even if the plan is horrifying! If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it's all "part of the plan". But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!

Thanks again to everyone who keeps this amazing site going.

If it would be helpful to create an needless additional tier of "site extra supporters", I would be more than happy to kick in my share.

You know, if throwing money at the problem is te best approach.
