Hi guys,

 

As you guys have realized, this is now the second time in three days that we've had significant downtime as a result of a SQL error. Apparently the SQL process on the server keeps on crashing, and do to some convoluted infrastructure I can't even do something like write a cron job that checks if it's up every 15 minutes. Regardless, I'm trying to get to the bottom of all of this with the server people.

 

If we do keep on getting issues, I'll definitely be looking into a better server. Due to cost reasons, I'm a little hesitant about that. I also feel a little wary about asking you guys to donate when I'm not sure what's going on at onemanga.com- if the old forums comes back up and zabi is alive, then that is something we'd want to consider.

 

Regardless, if we don't hear things about OM soon and we keep on having issues, I'll get a better server and open up donations.

 

Sorry about all this, guys. I know that this is annoying, but we'll get it sorted out.

It's great that you're telling us what's going on. (: 

I'm also willing to donate, of course. The time you people put down on this, that's the least one can give back.

I'd be willing to donate a chunk of change now and then should you opt to open donations. Least I can do.

If I could, I'd donate too. Even so, you have my backing, whatever you wanna do.

I'm not sure how much I'd be able to give if it comes to this, but if it means keeping Onemanga around then I'd be more than happy to help out and donate.

Thanks for the update. Unfortunately, I probably won't be able to donate, but I'll continue to help in any way I can (Searching for old members, etc).I hope that a system can be used where it doesn't divide/segment the userbase too much (If you decide to do perks, etc).

 

Anyway, hopefully we'll find something out about onemanga.com soon.

Have you considered that the load could be due to the forum software as well as the server? This software has a lot more dynamic content than vB had.

Well, like I said in the "old school forum"

IP.B is resource eater.

 

In the mean time;

vB 3.8, the version who used in OMF 2.0 is E.O.L

vB 5 is still a long way to go.

xF is busy with I.B sue.

 

If you are a vB fans, your best shot are vB 4. But vB 4 soon will be replaced by vB 5.

 

p.s: I cant donate, by I can (and still) tell all my friend about this site.

I'm sure that most, if not all, of the frequent users will be willing to help out in anyway they can.
OM is still a big community, even with all of the small problems we have XD kinda like a dysfunctional family that spans around the entire world.
Just keep doing a good job like you have been, and inform us of what's happening. We'll get this place up and running  well together if it's possible C:

If I donate, will I get a medal under my avatar and text that says something like "This member is VIP, bow before her, you peasant!"?

 

I can donate a little bit ..even if I don't get a medal. :derp:

XenForo has copied IPB in its resource eating, if that's what you meant by xF. It is very similar, except with more AJAX requests to update page content (such as dates and alerts) in real-time.

Hi guys,

 

As you guys have realized, this is now the second time in three days that we've had significant downtime as a result of a SQL error. Apparently the SQL process on the server keeps on crashing, and do to some convoluted infrastructure I can't even do something like write a cron job that checks if it's up every 15 minutes. Regardless, I'm trying to get to the bottom of all of this with the server people.

 

If we do keep on getting issues, I'll definitely be looking into a better server. Due to cost reasons, I'm a little hesitant about that. I also feel a little wary about asking you guys to donate when I'm not sure what's going on at onemanga.com- if the old forums comes back up and zabi is alive, then that is something we'd want to consider.

 

Regardless, if we don't hear things about OM soon and we keep on having issues, I'll get a better server and open up donations.

 

Sorry about all this, guys. I know that this is annoying, but we'll get it sorted out.

Don't worry Greg we know you do your best. I'm in for donations if it comes to it.
