Temporary loss of access to the site
« on: February 11, 2011, 06:04:02 pm »
Until my life situation shows signs of stability again (which may occur soon since an idiot at work just got fired tonight, but I take time to recover), I have decided to temporary remove myself from the site access (forum admin access, FTP and hosting account). As requested to Eeems, the password will be changed sometimes tonight or tomorrow, depending of when he'll be online again.

Because of this, I will not be able to answer any emergency requests such as banning spammers, rating abuse and uploading files on Omni. This also mean that if I decide to not request access again for a long while, the other admins and users who already have access to the site will have the task of performing the weekly database backups I've been doing, and should my access removal last longer than expected, a monthly backup of the 3 GB site files. (The last one was on Feb 4th, 5 AM GMT-5)

Last Summer I did the same thing, but the one who last changed the password mistyped it and locked everyone out of the site FTP for several hours. Afterward, I became the only person besides Rcfreak0 to have access, until a few months ago.

I prefer to do this in case I flipped again, until I am certain that the recent issues I had to deal with online and offline are resolved.

If I decide to return to admin in the meantime, all my tasks will be done indirectly: If work on the 10th anniversary Omnimaga skins starts by then, I'll be using a dummy copy of Omnimaga website on 1and1 to test then send the files to Eeems. As for news articles on the front page I may suggest some to random staff from time to time.

Sorry for the problems I may have caused lately and sorry if I have been rude to anybody as well.

EDIT: SMF just released a new 1.1.x update. It's a good thing I saw it now.

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Woot, guy got fired! Well, that's not a good thing for him, but for you it is.
