Ooooops! My most sincere apologies to everyone
Something went horribly wrong when I created and deleted a custom emoji and it broke the site.
I tried to fix it last night but I was so exhausted I was missing simple things so had to sleep and approach the problem again this morning with a clear mind.
Anyway, I found the problem and we’re now up and running again.
I definitely need to do some more tests with this and work out what went wrong before attempting the emoji enhancements.
All the best
Anybody can break something.
However to fix it, takes a special kind of person.
Thank you Kel.
Wow! Thank you for saying that - I really appreciate it
I just heard back from the guys at Discourse, they said this shouldn’t have happened and they are investigating - with a bit of luck the server logs and how I fixed it should help.
I’m taking this as complete absolution from the guilt of breaking the site hehe, I don’t think I actually did anything wrong per se
Did you insert the “stress” unit into the site code?
Heheh! Somehow I think the stress unit was installed in me during the time it was down… urgh! I literally woke up this morning dreaming about ridiculous possible explanations! If you take this to mean that I care, a lot, that everything is right, you wouldn’t be far wrong
Always willing to learn, always seeking to make things better! I don’t think I am alone feeling this and it’s totally amazing to feel part of an endeavour to really make better things in the world we live in
I really like well presented constructive criticism, I think this is how we evolve, so please do speak up if there’s anything you would like to see here.
Besides that I’ll do some thinking. The forums great and appreciated.
