Hey all, you probably won't notice any differences but I've updated our board to the latest version of phpBB, 3.2.3. You can check out the changelog here if you want: https://www.phpbb.com/support/documents ... ion=3#v322

I've updated things again, to phpBB 3.2.4. It's mostly a security update. Read about it here: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... &t=2492206

I also made some server config changes that might speed up the website a little (I enabled content caching and server-side compression of html.)

Thanks for taking the survey! Here's the results: https://jack1177.typeform.com/report/ra ... B1U6MUsFzM

A good number of you are having issues, but no one seems too annoyed by it at least. I'll take this to mean we should continue on with this hosting plan for now. If things start getting worse at some point we can always do something about it then.

Turns out updating to 3.2.7 broke the spoiler tag, but it's fixed again now!
Yay!

Spoilers work.

I reconfigured the server to force secure HTTPS connections (HTTP requests will redirect to HTTPS now.) If this causes anybody problems or you run into weird issues, let me know!

We're updated to phpBB version 3.3.0!
Read more about this update here: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... &t=2534541
and see a summary of the new features here: https://www.phpbb.com/about/launch/

If you find any weird bugs let me know so I can fix them or die trying. (I already found a couple...)

I also forgot to mention that I set the site to go through CloudFlare a couple weeks ago, to resolve the issue some people were having with accessing the forum. This means that all the web traffic to this site is proxied through CloudFlare's servers, letting us get around the random IP ban some UK ISPs gave us. It should also in theory make the site load a little faster, as they claim to cache static content. Zoom zoom!

We've got a year and a half or so left of web hosting on the plan I bought. I'll most likely move to a more powerful/reliable host after that (and will bug you guys to chip in to make that happen.) For the present, we're all set!

I've also added a fun new feature: you can now add your team name to your forum profile!
