Site Update 27/07/22

Hello all, 


This is just an update to mention a couple of items.  Furthermore, apologies for the extended downtime recently. We were running into some hideous issues on the backend of the site, which was also causing a little havoc on the front end from time to time. As it happens, it was the migration to the new server which bought some of these underlying issues to light.  I had two experienced guys working on the problem as some of it was rather elusive. Our server admin Mr @EmXaN and Mr @A Zayed did a wonderful job in squashing the issues. I did very little other than test, so big thanks to these gentlemen.


I also want to send out my gratitude to all those who have Subscribed or Donated towards the site. This helps towards the continued running and development of the site. We are in a better situation that we were around a month or so a go, which is great news. So a big thanks to all of you! 


So, moving on to the points.........


1. With the successful rollout of the User Award systems. I have now included the User Awards and a description for each in out Site Guide & Features topic. This will be updated as new badged are created.




2. I have been made aware recently that some have had issues leaving members sales feedback when completing a purchase in the classifieds section. After investigating further, there was a configuration error causing problems. If you have completed any transactions through the classifieds section, please consider going back and leaving feedback, which you can do here :  https://forums.extremehw.net/feedback/ 


If there are any further issues, please let me know!


3. For a long while the Rig Creator had an issue whereby when you loaded into a thread, it would throw you to a rig page. This was not a bug as such with Rig Creator, but was part of a larger issue with the Ajax calls taking too long due to a bug elsewhere on the site.  Even though we have fixed the culprit, we also took the opportunity to alter the Rig Creator plugin to use a different system, so that it was not dependent on Ajax. This was with a view to preventing future issues if another plugin etc caused issues with the Ajax system.  Long and short of it, these issues should be gone.


That is it from me for now. 


All the best,
