The site has been experiencing intermittent DNS-related issues the past few months. This could affect the site’s accessibility for a brief period of time while my DNS host is experiencing problems (though this mostly affects new visitors only). Since I detected some issues twice this month already, I have decided to just move the DNS hosting elsewhere. It costs more, but this will hopefully make things a lot more stable, plus it just might be able to fix some e-mail related issues as well (still have to verify this). The DNS changes shouldn’t result to any site downtime, but I will still be closely monitoring things within the next 24-72 hours just in case some unexpected issues arise.
– additional optional info in player profiles, also optimized some existing scripts
– minor security changes in the registration procedures
– totally revamped the Friends List page to make it more useful and functional, this will serve as the foundation for the many features still to be added in this particular area (e.g. you should SOON be able to add friends that you just met on the site… one of the most requested feature)
