So, you may have noticed the site being down/up/down/up/down/up over the past few days. shtkn and I were putting in some serious work moving the entire database to a new host and we finally got it working after one or two (or 100) problems... so hopefully everyone is having trouble-free posting AND noticing a considerable speed upgrade as well! One of the main benefits (besides speed) is that there will be less (or no) pruning of old posts... unless they just suck! Our old host had a serious limit on it and we were WAY over. Now... everything is cool =D.
That being said, the new server is considerably more expensive than the old one, so if you feel nice and want to donate to a good cause, swing by the donate link up top and make it rain! Of course, it's not required or anything, but it definitely helps and would be greatly appreciated!
Oh! Another bit of info! We will be adding a Skullgirls section to Dustloop for anyone that is interested in MikeZ's (and Autumn Games & Reverge Labs) new anime-style fighting game. It looks to be like a barn-burner... and I hope everyone gives it a chance (not just to support MikeZ and his team, but also GGPO)!
Lastly, many of us have been known to chat on IRC (EFNET) on #GGXX and #BlazBlue (among other channels). We've decided to create #dustloop on EFNET in an attempt to consolidate the channels and provide one central location to chat about our favorite anime-style games (and anything else). Swing on by and say hi!
Anyway, thanks so much for your patience as we switched servers and I hope you enjoy the newer/faster Dustloop!
