File upload limitations, No more Rars(and a few others)

Posted by Kaelten Sep 22, 2008 at 15:57 UTC

We've been having a lot of issues with the curse client not supporting non zip files. The lack of support for the other various compression formats is a simple matter of not wanting to bloat the client with libs to handle them.

So for WoW and WAR we've decided to start blocking the uploads of the following file types.

  • rar
  • ace
  • 7z
  • tar
  • gz
  • bz2

This means that if you want to upload a compressed file it should be a .zip file.

We're sorry for any inconveniences this may cause and we may reexamine at this to figure out a better solution in the future. But for now please re-upload file of the disallowed types if you wish for them to be the main file for your project.

Hey folks, just taking the forums offline for an hour or for some maintenance, if all goes well it shouldn't even take that long.

EDIT: Forums will stay online, but read-only.

Hello, friends.

We're doing some maintenance on the forums system, moving boxes around in the server room and all. We expect the downtime to last no more than a couple hours.

To pass the time, here's a kitty:

Addendum: We're all done.

Forum and Site email fixes

Posted by Kaelten Feb 25, 2009 at 20:54 UTC

We've had a bug in the forum's login script that was accidently clearing emails from accounts. This would prevent people from receiving emails or any other notifications.

Also I've revamped several chunks of our dns records, reverse dns, and spf records.

This should help increase the reliability of receiving email in general.
