Purge complete, did your comic disappear?

Postby Kisai on Sat Feb 28, 2004 12:16 pm

Well the results were less than stellar:
5715 out of 13591 comics remain

Now hopefully AutoKeen, guide generation and such takes much less time.

If your site got "eaten" this was the criteria that forced a removal:
Site has less than 128KB of data AND
Site was last updated before November 27th 2003

So the only false positives would have been people who were not using AutoKeen and didn't upload much or anything.

Please make sure that you post the USERNAME only (no passwords) if you are requesting a site be reinstated.

I can reinstate any comic as long as I have the username to go by, any passwords used would remain the same. However if the email has changed, you will need to PM me with the original email and the new email.

I noticed the webalizer logs are gone, though. Are we getting those back?

On another note: Huzzah! The storyline dropdowns are working again! I was getting sick of people complaining...

If you were smart like me you would've saved logs to your HD already. All my logs got deleted to, same thing happened before on Jan 1, 2003.

Actually, they're not. They just moved. Look here

Miraculously, HNTRAC survived the purge. If it wasn't for that dummy text file we have we would have been BALEETED.

However, I don't really approve of killing all the old comics that stopped updating. I also doubt you'll see much of a speed increase as most of the time is likely spent on comics that actually exist. I think a better idea might be to flag all of the old comics so that auto-update ignores them, but it may be too late for that now.

Old comics with something worth reading should have survived.

Fortunately, I AM smart like you *gag gag* and did save all my logs... all except for February...

Thanks Tero. I did try that earlier, but I kept getting redirected to the main keenspace page.

I just recently got my account reactivated and was working on something to actually put in, and now the site gets wiped. I still have the account, just no site. Here goes another PM to Kisai... :oops:

...mine's gone...and I was just starting to figure out how to update too...

So being the idiot I am I have to ask how I can get a comic site so I can get the stupid random thing I've been working on up. >.< you know there's a problem when you start far in and have to work your way back...

Okay, here's the other thing... I made backups everything that was removed, because I knew a few false positives were going to slip through.

Good thing comics weren't purged on grounds of low quality or I would have had to start all over again.

I mean, yeah! About time all those freeloaders left! Yeah....ahem...

Um... I'm confused. I thought mine might have gotten deleted in the purge, but it seems that the files are still there, although the site itself is not appearing for me. I can also directly access things in the workspace folder, but not in the public_html folder, though ftp still shows me all those files. What does all this mean for my poor comic?

Keenspace sites aren't showing up at this moment. It's likely a temporary problem.

Actually, it looks like keenspace just went down again. I can't seem to get to any of them, which is sorta aggravating since I was going through the Things Keenspacers Wouldn't Say thread, and there are apparently a bunch of picture links that aren't showing up.

Edit) And damned if I didn't get beat to posting...

Damn it people, if something stops working, give it a rest and come back in 30 minutes and see if it works, sometimes there is a momentary problem. In this cause I had offlined mysql, proftpd and apache at different moments so I could trace a memory leak.

Looks like mine (phxl.keenspace.com) got eaten. I started working on it only last week and I noticed it was gone when I tried to upload my banner last night. :o

It took you 5 days to notice?

PEOPLE... if your site disappeared, it's because you didn't upload a comic for 90 days!

I'll go put phxl back...

anyone else?
