Page Issues and Updates

Hey everyone!

Thanks for stopping by :) If you are a regular visitor, you will have noticed that the last few days were riddled with access issues. I apologise for all these problems since I know how much many of you rely on the strategies listed here.
The reason for the issue is two-fold. There was an attack against the service provider (probably not against Xu-Fu directly) which caused the server to crash.
At the same time, however, there has always been a very high load on the server, making it prone to long loading times, timeouts and eventual crashes.

To combat these, I had to add a maximum number of simultaneous visitors. This is only a temporary measure and I will ease this limitation over time until things are OK again.
I am also working on a number of improvements to make the page more stable.

One of them you will see later today, a brand new comment and notification system! I was working on that for weeks now and it was almost ready, but since it will replace a large amount of very old (and inefficient) code, I am rolling it out now already. It will take a bit to get used to but the new system should work much better to notify you when other people reply to your comments or write something on your created strategies.

Thank you for your understanding!

I thought about responding everyone individually but decided against it because it would always be the same message: THANK YOU!

It truly means a lot. Xu-Fu has become a pretty big responsibility (in my mind) and at times I don't feel equipped to really be there enough, and to do everything this project deserves. All your positivity and friendliness, patience and understanding makes a big difference. Thank you :)

As a physician, WOW, battle pets specifically take my mind away from the many stressors. Your website reduces those stressors even more. Thank you so much for this.

i truly appreciate what you do for us pet battlers/collectors. Real life can take over, and also wow can lose its allure sometimes.. Thank you for doing everything you do, despite those. xx

Any news on when the Magpie site will be back online? It's been off for a few days now. Thanks :)

You don't have to apologize for anything. None of us pay to be here. All your hard work, all you do to provide this space and this info, is appreciated. Thank you!

I appreciate the words :) Still, I committed to this page and whenever there is a problem I do feel responsible. Because I kinda am? ha! But everything looks much much better now so I'm happy!

You are great. TY so much. If you need any help could we offer it?

Hey :) I'm receiving some help already and I think I've got things under control now. Thank you very much though, really appreciate it!

Good to see you back! And like others have said, no reason to apologise. We're just lucky you made this site for us. :)

No need to say sorry :) Thanks a lot for all the hard work and for giving us battlers a home!! :) - what if registered members (who were already a member before the crash) get whitelist'ed or else prioritized concerning the logins and site feature usage?

You have provided an amazing resource and your work is much appreciated by all of us pet battlers and collectors!
