Well, let me shine some light on this. During few last days the site was under DoS attack by some user (actually he left a few "threatening" comments and showed accidentally who he really is) for unknown reasons. It surely wasn't enough to kill the server, but caused some noticable slowdown. We decided to try CloudFlare for protection, as Sonic Retro does. Unfortunately, its activation cause en.sonicscanf.org to be unavailable for some time, as I forgot to about "en." subdomain prefix, while everything else worked. But the bright side is that it also serves as CDN and should make SCANF load faster now, as static resources (images, css, scripts, etc) are being cached on their side.
I remember what troubles it brought when we were working on Sonic Rush translation. Though for the most part it was because you didn't use color picker to choose the right "white", but lack of transparency support is a huge minus.
I've tried to make this topic a litle more general, so all past and upcoming issues can be discussed here. Unfortunately, it's not possible to make another post the first one, so Shadow's post had to be edited to include topic's description. I hope he is not against of this. The same could possibly be made with Sonic Universe/Sonic X/etc.
NEO METAL SONIC, please try to put a little more work into making posts here and don't overuse bold font/Caps Lock. Here are the rules:
Otherwise, unfortunately, we'll have to move your posts in trash.
The idea of merging the forums made me interested, but I doubt that will work. It would be a mess if we put all the sections from Russian and English boards onto one. We've thought about "transfering" the activity, but as Lunar has already explained, only a few can speak both languages good enough to participate.
Actually Russian community had already existed before comics section was opened. It was more in a effort to let our fellow fans know that Sonic is not just about the games and there is another beautiful Sonic world. However, a lot of foreign people started to find us for comics and gallery. English version was an another experiment, and as you see, mostly failed one. I see Lunar's point why. Still, it would be nice if we could unite the comic-reading userbase we already have as a community.
It's possible to do so, but the idea was not to have too much areas with a few topics. Though I'll create some here.
Unfortunately, we won't be able to accept donations due to different payment systems used in Russia, and this could put us in trouble anyway. But, Viceversa96, you can help us to make it a better place here by participating in the community.
