  1. Downtime for Server Updates 2021-05-30 17:28

    Hi SpaceDock users! SpaceDock will be unavailable for about an hour starting 2021-05-31 10:00 UTC to install several fixes and improvements:

    • Eliminate 90% of backend CPU usage by caching templates (faster page loads, possibly)
    • Improve the appearance of mod thumbnails
    • User profile links handled better
    • Ensure notifications are sent to CKAN properly at mod creation
  2. Missunderstood your Question:
    yes you can link whatever you like as long as it isnt against german law or problematic if minors see it.

    There shouldnt be a reason why some wouldnt work.

    We test it later and report back.

    Can you post the Link you used?

  3. Regarding activation:

    Send me a  private message here with your reg email and username on SPaceDock. Ill manualy activate you.
    Sometimes Mail Providers block to many mails in fear of spam.

    About renaming Mods:
    mod names are reflected in links.

    SpaceDock can route people even with a changed modname but i think that having people click on a link with modname A and route them to a page with mod name B will confuse them and could give the impression that the site was broken.
    I generaly advise people to make a new mod and link to it from within the description area of the old one.

  4. I was just informed by the Datacenter:

    There will be maintenance on the Router for SpaceDocks main Server.

    Start:          3. March 2021 03:00:00 CET
    End:           3. March 2021 03:30:00 CET (estimate)

    So thats 30 Minutes.

    Please plan your Mod up/downloads accordingly.

    Thank you

  5. Note:

    SpaceDock has an IRC channel (#spacedock on espernet) Discord:  https://discord.gg/KQbnUF and an Matrix server: +spacedock:52k.de
    We are getting regular questions a bout mods now we cant answer as well as you guys can. Pointing them to the Forums doesn't seem to help.
    So please consider joining.
    Bonus: you can yell at us in real time ;)


    p.s. if you want to use irc and want bnc i can supply that (if you think i just mashed my keys you're fine)

  6. SpaceDock isn't like Google but more like Linux:

    There isn't an Army of Workers and Vaults full of cash but only a handfull of your fellow community members pulling all nighters to keep this running and on top of that paying money to co-finance the whole thing.

    Its only as good as your support.

    Less help less SpaceDock.


  7. Today is Sysadmin Appreciation Day. :)



    Thank you
    to all the digital heros who keep our world spinning, work overtime, get only noticed when people cant get stuff working, sweat in "High temperature server rooms", get sysadmin cold in "normal" server rooms and get stuff to run with paperclips, nail clippers, ball pens and the wrong size flat head screwdrivers.

    Uptime is a fight. Capslock is your enemy you are awesome!
