    Oi lads,

    It's been a while since myself or staff as a whole have made any sort of public facing post within this Forum Meta section, so I figured the presence of this thread would be good to have as just a touch-base to let folks know we're indeed active and alive every once in a while.

    My updates will mostly relate to the routine maintenance that keeps this autistic hivemind well-oiled, while the rest of staff might pop in for more community focused updates if they so choose. Basically anything that doesn't deserve its own thread.
    After all, no detail is too minor.

    As of this latest lapse of tender loving care given to the CWCki Club server

    • Server's general OS, web stack, and related dependencies updated
    • Primary domain name renewed, domain names for external resources renewed
    • Corrected/updated all outdated or broken external image links
    • Xenforo theme and Xenforo addons updated
    • Improved DDoS detection's auto-population of iptables
    • Threw money at webhost to keep us fat and happy, threw more money at webhost to improve backup snapshopts

    Whoops, the way I wrote that made it sound like there was a new theme didn't it?

    Sadly no, just noticed some small alignment issues with current one and some expired external resources, so just updated current themes to fix that.

    Oi bruvs, just some small shit done over weekend

    • Gave the server it's much needed attention (she's a needy girl, okay not really)
    • Cleaned up some disk space
    • Configured alerting for any unknown system logons or certain failed logon behaviors/trends
    • Fixed some broken image links
    • Wasted time writing a redirect rule for chat link to go straight to Discord but realized the Chat MOTD having Discord link was good enough
    • Threw money at webhost par usual

    The user MoistNugget9130 requested a name change to Major Tech Priest. Or Random Tech Priest, he said either one but I like major better.

    Considering how much I hate the word moist this was a net positive for all parties involved.

    I did some things:
    - Went through the first page of CWC threads to add dates and descriptors. (When making a Discussion thread, please add dates and a descriptor/prefix, ie: "Twitter xx-xx-xx: Chris Says Moar Dum"
    - Hassled @Glaive to let me edit the prefixes to get rid of "Sweetheart" (since Chris is quadri-married now,) and fiddle around with more apt title prefixes.
    - Edited some posts because entirely italicized posts in awkward fonts are hard to read.

    Don't mess with text formatting - it looks weird and makes your posts hard to read and then shit like THIS happens:

    But if I don't format my text different then how do I show that I'm smarter than everyone else?

    - Fiddled with the thread prefixes. Removed "Sweetheart" and "Family" and added "Twitter".
    - Also edited the Posting Guidelines thread.
    -- Updated the "Gimmick Posting" thing to also encapsulate people who use the font editor to be special to remind that they are not beautiful and unique snowflakes. Especially if they're posting on a message board about the goings on of an autistic weirdo.
    - Am red now, still can't give Glaive warnings. >B(
