Discourse is back...mostly

Hey everyone! You might have noticed that the forum gods have shined their light upon us and our old Discourse forums are back! That’s great news and I can’t begin to explain how happy this makes me.

Of course, all is not well. We still cannot configure the email server correctly, so Discourse is currently unable to send email. As such, new users cannot currently sign up for the forum because we are unable to send the activation emails. We’re working on it and we’ll let you know when it’s all up and working as it should.

Thank you for sticking with us and, newbies, thanks for trying! Don’t leave, we’ll have you sorted out in no time.

That’s what they get for being new and trying to do things.


#3

So the good news is I actually received an activation email! The bad news is, it took it several hours to arrive. But it’s progress!


#4

It’s great to see another publisher here! We need more of that.


#5

We’re so glad we could join. Well ‘we’ so far is me, but hey, it’s something! :smiley:


#6

Hah! I have just successfully activated my account as well :slight_smile: So I’m on board too!


#7

You guys just reminded me to download all my Acram games into my new phone!


#8

@Neumannium can you hear me now?


#9

who is this? new phone…

The random notifications … that’s just Discourse coughing up its hairball, right?

Is everyone getting them? Some of mine are from a year ago.


#11

Yup, getting all of my achievements again as well.


#12

yeah, I’m getting them too. When I got it back online, it told me there were about 183,000 unfinished tasks, but I had no idea what that meant.

I think it was sending out notifications as if everything just happened.

Sorry about that. I’m hoping it stops after a time. If it doesn’t, I’ll start digging.


#13

I got a bunch of random notifications the first few days but they seem to have stopped.


#14

We’re talking the forum software, right?

If so, I haven’t received any additional notifications at all.


#15

That’s a lifetime total, Dave!

Sure? Sounds like a normal tuesday for me.
