Defective CPU cooler replaced
With the server coming down yesterday again, we ordered a hardware check and the service technican found a defective CPU cooler. So the machine was shutting down cause it simply was getting too hot. The cooler is replaced now and hopefully the server issues are gone now.
Downtime of the webpage
We're suffering from a couple of technical issues over the last days. The server has a problem with its power management, so that it's shutting itself down uncontrolled and doesn't wake up again afterwards. As we cannot restart it ourself in some cases, we have to wait for a technican from the datacenter.
Crash 1 was Monday night. Server got restarted Tuesday morning.
Crash 2 was Tuesday afternoon.
The second crash was hiding behind a destroyed fibre optics of our datacenter during construction works. The repair lasted into the night so that we discovered the server being down again not before today. A technican restarted the server asap.
We'll now try to discover the source of the probelms together with the technicans. This can take some time as it can either be a software or a hardware issue.
If we have to suffer from more crashes, we'll do our best to get the page back online as soon as possible. We're also cutted from our e-mails, so for any status updates you have to check our Facebook page or watch our Twitter stream (see top right for links).
Change in the organizer management
Additional organizers don't have to be approved by admins anymore. If a user gets added as an organizer, he'll receive an e-mail with an approvement link. Every user will know if he wants to be organizer or not. In addition the new feature will reduce workload for the admins.
Please assure that you've got a valid email address in your profile or you won't be able to approve the organizer access. A direct notification on the website is planned.
Please report if something seems to be broken.
Notifications in a wrong language
Currently a bunch of emails are send in a wrong language. In most cases this happens when a player without a T³-account signs up for a tournament in Belgium. The current database design cannot handle the bilingualism of the country and sends emails in French which is currently set as the default for Belgium. I'll try to improve the scripts.
Problems with the newsletter
We currently have some problems with the newsletter being send in a wrong language. Please report if you're affected and tell us if you're using an account and what language setting you're using.
