I just wanted to say that my comic (beginning with a C) has returned. Thanks, Drunk Duck!
Charby the Vampirate worked, Cwen's Quest worked. So did Bloodman and Arkadis. Another ‘C’ comic, Cosmic Dash did not.
Jillyfoo's link to Demon Eater still took me to the front page.
I tried Death brigade from the front page and it worked.

So, it looks like things are starting to be fixed at least. I'll betcha it's not long before we're back in order.


I'm getting
Someone
Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /comics/D/Demon_Eater/ on this server.

From my Demon Eater site right now. Different from yesterday.

I really want to get to updating again. This stuff always happens. sigh… :)

Huh, that's weird. Dragon City Stories is working, but not Dragon City (Dragon City Stories is a bit of a spin off that I quit updating.)

Not digging that the clocks changed to PST again. DD has aways been CST…at least to me. Is there a reason the clock moves back two hours every time the server updates?

(Changing it to PST means we have to wait 2 extra hours for new comics)

Hi, my comics are back up and working, but I've noticed everything is shifted a day backward. Would be great if that could be fixed, as I have a daily comic and I wouldn't want confusion resulting from a faulty date system. I'm gonna upload my comics on the days they are supposed to be, so everything from the 17th on for Don Josh is on the date it should be…

Site is running faster than yesterday also. That makes me happy.

Update: All ‘B’ letter comics should be working. A, C, and D are still copying, so more and more of them should be accessible throughout the day.

Another update: I've been told all the letters have finished copying over and all comics should be showing up now. Please post here if you find a comic that's still not working.

Thanks!

Nooo, I like it being on Central time so I don't have to figure out the time difference.
I guess that's not very fair, though. :(

Because a majority of the site is located in the United States, where it's not even close to 3:18 in the morning. Shouldn't you be in bed?

Also avatars aren't working now for me, is anyone else having this problem. oh jesus christ

Well the comics are working, But the Avatars are down. A small thing, One bigger thing is that as I was going though an archive of one of the comics I read, I would be spontaneously signed out from time to time, or there would be a SQL error pop up.

No, that's why it was set in the beginning. Now the time is like that because a bazillion crazy processes all depend on it to BE that time. It can't be anything different or things go to crap.

There are no avatars right now and I keep getting signed out constantly. This is not a workable state at the moment.

As has been said, avatars aren't working. However, load times are fairly quick compared to yesterday!

Comic descriptions on the front page aren't always displaying properly when you move over them. Sometimes they'll show a series of script errors or just no description instead.

Also, the random logouts seem to be happening at the worst possible times (at least for me), like when I'm trying to post on the forum or upload a comic page.

I am getting some “This comic has no pages yet” errors off and on. It will load fine one minute and then have the error the next.

(This took forever to actually post with the repeated logouts. :P )

Random logoutd all the time, in the mycomics section I get someone else's comics.
Still slow.

random breakage here and there, avatars not showing, pages not coming up at all with some kind of exception coming up.

But sometimes avatars load for me.

The site seems to be loading much faster for me now, at least compared to the last few days.

We're currently working on the random logout and missing avatar issues. Will continue to update as I learn more!

I don't think that this is major, but it is annoying:
I keep getting booted from my account. I'll go to update a page and it will take me to the “You must be logged in to do that” screen. I log back in, and it works for about another five minutes, then boots me out again.

I want to give a big thanks to Wowio, though, for putting up with jerks like me who make big deals out of nothing sometimes. Monday, I was pretty mad, but I'm calmer now.

PS: This problem only started today. Monday it was just slow.

I wait for love, beating love,
To return to me…

There is a bug that I noticed as well, but I don't know if anyone else had the same problem:

When I'm trying to create a downloadable archive of my comics (Account Profile > Edit comic x > Archive comic), I get the said message:

There was an error. Please contact an administrator.

Which is kinda annoying since I'd like to create a backup of my comic Memories… :x

Update: The server time has been changed back to CST. Still working on the other issues, but the feedback so far has been much appreciated and very helpful.

I know it an be horribly annoying and frustrating when that happens, but trying to attempt that sort of thing now when the site is like this is like playing golf in a lightning storm.

Best wait it out till we're stable and then try again man.

Hi, I seem to be having some problems.
First off, for some reason, DD is insisting I log in again, every time I try to do something, and then bumps me off to the main page after logging in. (Which is making posting this very difficult, let me tell you. =)
Secondly, for some reason, in the MyComics section of my tools bar, or whatever you call that thingy on the right that says who I am, and has the account and inbox buttons on it… anywho, for some reason, it shows several different comics belonging to someone else, instead of mine. Oh, wait, that's fixed now. Huh. Well, anyway, you should probably look at that anyway, it might do it again or something.

Ta! Good luck with whipping DrunkDuck back into proper shape! ^_^

When I'm reading a comic it logs me out and occasionally says that the comic has no pages.

(less slow)

I just logged in about a minute ago and it displayed the wrong comics under the “My Comics” section. I refreshed (got logged-out, logged back in), and now it seems to have fixed itself for the time being. Also the random log-outs seem to be happening a little less frequently (to me, anyway).

Site keeps logging me out. It also sometimes will not log me back in, even if I put in my username and password and enter it. Not only that, but sometimes the forum or comics won't load at all (often with some error message), then they load or don't load when I refresh it.

I've had to try at least 10 times to get this message to post. I wouldn't be surprised if it fucks up the minute I press enter.

Thought it would be important to know this:

Right now, my Norton is declaring DrunkDuck a computer threat. This is the info I get when I click for details.

Every time I go from one ‘favorite’ to another I get logged out.

Seems like I'm not the only one having this issue. But yah, I keep getting booted. I'll go to comic stats, or anything past the first “add page to comic” page, and it says I need to be logged in to do it, cause I totally wasn't to get that far in the first place. Thanks~
