Changes August 17th/18th 2017
« on: August 18, 2017, 02:48:14 pm »
You may have noticed some small changes to the site:

  • We're now using HTTPS
  • For your first visit in a session, there is a donate message
  • The styles have been tidied up a bit...

Some pages might say the page in insecure still. This is usually because an image (avatars or embeds in posts) are hosted somewhere else that isn't using HTTPS. I can't do much about that.

There was a blip in the past day where some pages with forms wouldn't post, this should be fixed now!

I'm using Cloudflare for HTTPS, and with Cloudflare we also get some speed/performance improvements. So that's pretty awesome.

I've introduced a new "Virtual Reality" section on the site. The cost of proper VR is really coming down these days, and there are a lot of interesting devices coming out of China to facilitate this. So feel free to jump on the discussion in the Virtual Reality board.

Thanks to those that have donated already since the message went live. The new dedicated hosting for Dingoonity costs a lot more than the previous hosting. I'm able to cover much of this myself, but every donation helps a lot.

If you use Dingoonity daily and you want to see this community stick around for the foreseeable, then please consider donating today.
