  1. Hey. There's no Sidefx support on this forum. You can report a bug here: https://sidefx.com/login/?next=/bugs/submit/ Thanks M
  2. 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
  3. über slow

    ping times? I'll check the logs to see if I can notice anything.
  4. 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
  5. über slow

    Could you guys ping forums.odforce.net and let me know what your ping times are? M
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. Neill Blomkamp & Oatstudios

    Yeah they do all the work in house.
  10. 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 :).
  11. Work in progress

    Working now, thanks
  12. 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
  13. Work in progress

    ok fixed! Permissions problems.
  14. 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
  15. 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?
  16. 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
  17. NAS

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

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

    Hi all We need to run maintenance on the server as well as upgrade the forum. The work will take place this weekend sometime, so if you get here and things look down, please be aware that we're working on it ;). Thanks M
  21. Server downtime

    Monday update: The forum has been upgraded to the latest version and everything seems to be working well. There are some slight skin differences, but they should be minimal. For any who are interested, here is a full list of what the update brings us: https://invisioncommunity.com/news/invision-community-42-r1030/ Thanks M P.S. If any of the 'minimal' skin changes bother you in some way, please post in the od|force suggestions/bugs forum.
  22. Server downtime

    Update: The server has been upgraded and everything seems to be stable. The forum will be upgraded later tonight or tomorrow morning (PST). Thanks Marc
  23. Server downtime

    The backstory is that Jason and I were trying to find a name for our newly fledged Houdini website, and so we challenged the artists in the studio to come up with a name (bearing in mind that Jason and I were the only two Houdini users in the facility). We even offered a reward for the best name: pizza! About 20 minutes later we stumbled across the 'Od Force' definition on some website somewhere and ran with it. The pizza we bought ourselves was amazing.
  24. I just tried Marty's suggestion and it works. There's a new version of the forum out now that I'm testing, I'll see if it's more obvious there.
  25. Hey Tom Yeah I know what you mean. I think it's a 'feature' of the forum. I can certainly look into it, but I'm not terribly hopeful :).
