Chat Temporary Hiatus

  • May 25, 2017

    Yesterday, I posted this status:

    Attention all members: unfortunately, we've been experiencing more server interruptions today. We're currently working with the server people to address the issue, but they're telling us that chat is consuming a large majority of our resources. To make sure the site as a whole stays up and keeps running smoothly, we're going to be disabling chat in one hour until further notice. We do apologize for the inconvenience, as we realize many of you, myself included, use it to talk with each other while on site. This isn't permanent, however. We'll be looking into getting something more efficient, but for right now, keeping the site up with as few server interruptions as possible is the priority. Questions, comments, and insults are welcome. 

    All of the above still stands -- this post is simply for visibility and dialogue. Thanks for your patience, all.
