Skaia.net is entering a slow spindown of services. Over the past couple years I feel it’s had a nice place in the community, but due to a lack of time to commit, and a failure to take off in the way I had originally hoped, I haven’t been able to put into it what it [...]
From Pesterchum Radio‘s blog: 6 months. 26 Episodes. Battles waged. Hearts broken. Members of the music team haunted. Shrine Maidens eaten. It all comes down to this, a final battle for both life and death. Three men and guest Samm Neiland enter into deaths domain, broken, battered and cold, not knowing what awaits them at [...]
Skaia.net is back up to full capacity, including mail and imageboard. There was some data loss to the imageboard (about a week of uploads and comments), but this should be prevented in the future. The periodic outages should stop now too. Plenty of changes are in the works, like actually resuming creating mail addresses. If [...]
So we’ve been having a bit of a problem with the server lately. First, our server’s hard drive seemed like it didn’t want to live, right while I was moving across the country, which is why we were getting HTTP 500 errors from something like Aug. 20 to the 23rd and I couldn’t fix it. [...]
There was quite a lot of comment controversy on an image that was posted to the Imageboard recently, and since the board doesn’t have a news function or anything like that, I thought I’d address it here. A lot of the comments were arguing about the specific image in question violating board rules versus it [...]
There was an issue after the move where some oversized images on the imageboard were not generating their thumbnails correctly, resulting in an “Image Too Large” thumb instead. This has been fixed! On a side note, there is currently 2,294 pictures, totaling 462 megabytes in size, on the imageboard! I know not everything is there, [...]
Skaia.net has moved its services over to a new host. If you’re seeing this, you can already see our new server, so no worries! All the old services will still be up until tomorrow evening, giving the DNS plenty of time to cycle on your end. So don’t worry!
In a couple of weeks, Skaia.net should be moving to a new server. Web, IRC, and radio will stay the same, but the Imageboard is going to be converted from Shimmie to Danbooru, much better board software. I haven’t worked out the details of the migration but existing accounts may (hopefully at most) require password [...]
Due to a lack of use and its demands on the server, if there are no major objections I am going to be taking down the Jabber chat service. If someone creates a proper Pesterchum client that uses it I will be willing to bring it back up.
Skaia.net is introducing it’s newest feature, an image board! The purpose of the image board is primarily a place to collect fanart. Flash files should also be supported. The rules are simple. No adult works, no non-MSPA related images. Pretty much what you would post in the fanart thread. Or the image manipulation threads. Just [...]
