  1. ok, give or take a month or so, but approximately 10 years ago today Jason and I launched odforce as a way to get people to send us stuff . Nothing like being the only two Houdini users on an entire continent to motivate one to do something. Anyway, thanks for being with us for the first 10 years, lets see where the next 10 lead us. :balloon: :balloon: :balloon: :balloon: :balloon: Marc
  2. Happy 10th Birthday Od[force]

    Actually I think my math/memory was off. We are officially 20 years old! Woo M
  3. Happy 10th Birthday Od[force]

    Ha! It's funny, we were thinking of doing a big thing, and then I started questioning whether it was this year or next year that was our 20th anniversary. Well whatever, thank you all for making this such a great forum, and here's to another 20 (or 19, or something)... Cheers! Marc
  4. Suggestion: Extend recent replies

    Just in case you weren't aware there are the activity streams you can use too: http://forums.odforce.net/discover/unread/ Not quite as well featured, but perhaps could work.
  5. Suggestion: Extend recent replies

    I increased it to show the latest 15. Any longer than that and it will take more than a glance anyway
  6. über slow

    yeah we're getting a bunch of http failure errors again. I've opened a ticket with the host to see if they can figure it out. M
  7. Hey. There's no Sidefx support on this forum. You can report a bug here: https://sidefx.com/login/?next=/bugs/submit/ Thanks M
  8. über slow

    Hey I checked the logs and we were getting hammered from a social media crawler bot which was basically DOS'ing us. I've blocked it, so hopefully things will get better. The site seems snappier now, but we should keep an eye on it for a few days. Please reply here if things go south again. Thanks M
  9. über slow

    ping times? I'll check the logs to see if I can notice anything.
  10. über slow

    Yeah I guess there are two problems I'm trying to separate out here. The first is how long it takes your connection to get to the server and the second is how long it takes to load the pages. It seems better now since the reboot, I've also turned on gzip compression for some of the assets. I'd much appreciate it if you guys could post a ping time the next time the site is slow. It seems pretty snappy for me now, but I don't really know what the problem is yet, so I'm fairly convinced it will come back again. M
  11. über slow

    Could you guys ping forums.odforce.net and let me know what your ping times are? M
  12. über slow

    Hey It's been spotty from my side, I just assumed it was our amazing internet connection at work. Is it slow for anyone else? I'll definitely look into it though. Just an FYI though, the host that we were with got bought out by another company and our server was migrated to their servers. Some issues definitely came up in the migration, but I was hoping it had settled. If this host is not as good as the last one then we can definitely look into moving. Thanks M
  13. The two ways of doing this right now are to either change the title of the thread and add a [SOLVED] to it, which is probably the best way. The other is to add a tag to the topic. Unfortunately there seems to be no way of doing it within the software itself. I'll keep looking for a plugin to help, but for now the manual option is the only way. M
  14. Store

    Hey Ha, that menu shouldn't even be there :). I am very happy to discuss things if people want to put paid tutorials up (or anything of that sort), but for right now we have nothing to sell.
  15. Neill Blomkamp & Oatstudios

    Yeah they do all the work in house.
  16. Delete Posts & Thread Solved

    I believe you can edit your own post title to say [SOLVED] in it, which would help. Ideally though you'd reply to your own post with the solution to the problem. If there's one thing we've learnt over the years it's that you're never the only one who will get stuck on something :).
  17. Work in progress

    Working now, thanks
  18. Hey all There are some bugs with the current theme of the site. I'm looking into why and slowly rolling forum updates into some of the theme templates. If you notice anything weird then just give it a few minutes. If it persists then please reply here and I'll take a look. Thanks Marc
  19. Work in progress

    ok fixed! Permissions problems.
  20. Work in progress

    Nevermind, I found one. I'll dig into it a bit more. Turns out I was the one who needed to clear my cache
  21. Work in progress

    hmm... I'm going to throw out the standard tech support reply of "it works for me". That's not helpful though, so have you tried clearing your cache (ctrl-shift-r) and seeing if that helps? Also do you have any examples other than my userpic that's broken?
  22. We could add that. It looks like the leaderboard functionality in the other thread might be a bit more difficult (aka, unlikely ;)). One thing to check out though is the Q&A boards on the staging server: http://staging.odforce.net/forum/ and see if that helps with some of the things you're looking for? The Q&A forums are a bit of a shift from what we currently have though, so it might be a bigger conversation
  23. NAS

    Was the pain because it was slow? Were you guys working on Windows or Linux?
  24. testing. edit: Mine says 'Save' Weird. Have you tried clearing your cache?
  25. Server downtime

    oh that's weird. Thanks for letting me know. edit: It's better now.
