V's availability sucks...
« Opened on October 06, 2020, 22:16:05 PM »
I'm cautiously considering the idea of both posting here more frequently *and* possibly opening the invitation system up to some of the better behaved goats.


I definitely value feedback.


This site is running just fine. Not even a countries database error popping up!!!

We have an availability of about 100%, where Voat is probably down around 75% when it isn't cheating and showing a cached page to people who aren't logged in.


Yeah, I definitely value feedback.

Now, we all know that Voat cheats and that it shows a static, cached page to people/bots that aren't logged in. But, even with their cheating, you still have this:

Voat (Recent History) - HetrixTools

(That link should work for guest viewers of the site. It's the uptime monitor I set up for Voat a while back.)

So you are thinking about having the fngt here?

Is that what you're saying?

No. No, that's not what I'm suggesting. That's the actual plan if Voat goes south, but that's not what I'm saying.

I'm saying that Voat's reliability sucks and there are a (very) small number of non-guitar goats that *might* behave if invited to participate here.

So, we could actually have other content here.

So, any thoughts on *maybe* inviting a few goats?

The more I think about it, the more I think it's a horrible idea, but some people deserve a place to be. Some folks deserve to have a platform to communicate.

As I ponder this, I think maybe just sending them to Poal will work. I could get a domain and install a different/new forum.

It's a good thing we have this as a backup. Hope more will remember it's here.

I just went to bed. I actually slept pretty well for a night without my sleep meds. I'm kinda impressed! I must have slept for seven hours.

It just occurred to me that you may check here for any continued messages.

That'd be a good choice, but the private nature of the material means I sent my reply via email. Check that, if you're curious.
