Random Curiosity

It’s Alive, It’s Alive!! (Site Status Update)

We’re working on it.

As you may have noticed, Random Curiosity was down for about a week. For those who don’t follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or join us on Discord, here’s the long and short: we had server troubles that took longer than expected to resolve. Sorry about that! We’re back up and running now, and we don’t plan to go anywhere.

Important caveat to the thing I just said! While we were getting the site back online, we took the opportunity to update some back end systems that we’ve been (frankly) lax on the upkeep with, and that’s broken a few things. As I write this, the comment system is currently a bit broken, which we’re working on fixing as well. (Edit: They’re back online.) So we might have some downtime over the next few days as we smack down any bugs and do some needed updates. Hopefully it’ll be short or nonexistent, but if you try to visit and we’re down again, that’s why. The good news is that soon we’ll be up and running even stronger than before! We’re also contemplating a few changes that might make the site even better going forward.

For now though, please enjoy the onslaught of posts we’ve been writing but unable to publish for the past week. Even if the comment system is being screwy, we felt it was important to at least let you read the posts as soon as we can. Thank you for bearing with us, and all of your understanding. Y’all rock!

    Like Stilts said, we’re still working on it. But don’t worry, we’re getting there :)

    Comments seem to be back for good now.

      ❤️ Thanks for all your help, Mentar!

        I didn’t really do much. Rather, a friend of mine (Fruit) did most of the work. Thanks goes to him!

        Then thank you to Fruit as well!

    It lives!
    I was getting sad, this site is so old, would be a shame to lost it.

    When the site wouldn’t load I thought RC had been hacked, like what happened to ANN a while back. Thank goodness it’s just a server update. Phew!

    Good to have you guys and the site back.

    Every day just doesn’t feel complete without reading a new blog post and posting comments on RC.

    Welcome back! Hope you all enjoyed your “vacation”.

    Is upvote/downvote gone on purpose? Can’t really say I’d miss it, just wondering.

    • May 8, 2018 at 3:39 pmStilts

      It’s what was breaking the comments system overall, so we nixed it.

    I felt so lonely with this sit experiencing g technically difficulties.

  • May 8, 2018 at 5:49 pmiron2000

    Its great to see RC back up again!

    Is the RC server run from home or some third party provider?
