GoingSony Server Maintenance at 6PM ET Tonight (Update)

UPDATE: ...and done. All URLs should redirect to https now. There's still some more work to do to get the site 100% over to SSL, but that'll be implemented over time through this evening and Sunday. If you've made it this far, you should be golden. Though there may be times when the site logs you out due to my tweaks so... sorry. Hit me up with anyone experiences issues.


Hi people.

T27duck here with a quick heads up.

The server GoNintendo and GoingSony is going to head into a maintenance period a little after 6PM ET. Hopefully I'll be done with my work no later than 7PM. The site may be unresponsive or just flat out broken until I'm done.

If all goes eventually well, the plan is to switch the whole site over to SSL. You may be logged out of the site and will have to log back in when the maintenance is over.

Feel free to hit me up on Twitter @t27duck if you have issues after the maintenance is complete.

Quick server work happening

Hey everyone. T27duck here with a quick site update.

I'm going to have to do some quick changes to the "Internet tubes" connecting goingsony.com to the server. There may be periods of time when the site is not reachable. If that happens, just try again later. Eventually everything will update and it will be smooth sailing from that point.

Comment tweaks and a new RSS feed

t27duck the web guy here. Couple quick updates for those who don't go to GoNintendo often:

- Editing and replying to comments now direct you to a dedicated page instead of reloading the story and trying to jump you down to the comment form

- When replying, the page will also have the comment you're replying to right above the form for easy reference

- New Top Stories RSS feed: http://feedpress.me/goingsony-topstories


GoingSony Update: Private Messages

Howdy folks. Just dropping by to let you all know about a new feature launch on the site: Private Messages

At the bottom left of the page (next to your name), there is now a little envelope icon. The number next to it shows how many unread messages you have in your inbox. Clicking the icon will take you to your inbox where you can view messages, respond, and begin new conversations. You can send a PM to up to 10 users at once. Also, if have someone on your "Foes" list, they will not be able to PM you. Hooray privacy!

Every time you receive a new message, you will be notified via e-mail. If you want to turn this feature off, click on your username in the bottom navigation bar and uncheck "Notify Me on New Private Messages" under the Profile Settings tab.

We're not done yet. The ability to start a PM from a user's profile page is in the works as well as some form of a message board system is coming (ETA unknown)!

See a bug? Got questions? Hit me up on my Twitter (@t27duck) or better yet, send me a PM!
