FAQ Update

I updated the FAQ a bit to add some stuff related to just ShadowHime. Mainly to show what we specifically allow and don’t allow here on our server. Might clear up some stuff and such, in case people might ask.

As usual, be sure to check the FAQ and Tutorials pages before asking us anything on the IRC. Chances are, you’re questions are already answered.

Oh, note: I plan to re-do one or two of the tutorial pages to clean them up a bit. I was going through them and they look a little… messy, so I’m going to clean them and get them a bit more organized and hopefully easier to read.

New Theme Up!

I like the old theme, but we needed something a bit darker to fit the ShadowHime theme.

Basically, the way I see the shadow energy is an unstable mass of energy, so the black and purple seem to go well together. That’s just my opinion anyway, I’m sure people have their own.

At any rate, please let me know how the theme looks. I did some tweaking with the original theme to change the colors a tad from the original Hopefully y’all will like this theme. Now, if only I can get Nora to make some new images for us……. *glares at him*

Possible False Bans

For anyone who is going to the forum, or just this site in general, who end up getting a banned message (or a possible forbidden error or something), please give me an email at if you feel that it’s a false ban. I’ll work something out for you so you can have access again.

I have made an announcement on the forum, but to be brief here, we’ve had a user or two doing a ban evasion on me, so I’m having to do a slightly broad range for the ban to block the user(s) from our domain. So, with that, it’s very possible that I may have accidentally banned innocent users with that and could prevent access not only on the forum, but as well as our IRC server. If this is the case, then please fire me an email and I’ll work something out.

I might remove the ban, kinda depends… It’s also possible I might have to block the ISP as well and having to add exceptions for the users who shouldn’t be banned and all that. (yes, we can add exceptions in case something does happen)

Changes Coming Soon

You may be thinking what kind of changes, and whether or not they’re good or bad.

Whether or not you think this is good or bad is up to you, the reader. I won’t say the changes are right now, as I need to talk to Noratetsu about further refining on what we’re doing exactly.

Let’s just say, there are both good things about it, and bad things about it. A double-edged sword. Don’t you hate those? Yeah, I do too sometimes, but that’s life for ya.

You can follow up with the post via the comments I’ll be posting when I get the chance. I’ve been doing odds and ends stuff lately to post much.

Info Page Update

More like adding to it actually.

I think it was about time that I added a thing for false positives on the proxy scanner. Info will be on the Information page of our site, so if you get hit, you can just email us on staff to have it removed.

Blog Updated

If anyone tried coming on the last 10-20 minutes, the blog may have been unavailable for a short while, but that’s all taken care of. It didn’t take long to update the blog or anything, so now everything is a go.

No one will really notice anything on the main page, but the major re-design of WordPress was internally and on the administrator side of things. Have fun everyone, and I’m hoping for a good year for 2009! =^.^=
