    Looks like we're operational again. Please let us know if you run into any issues. We'll be working on the site the rest of the day refining things.

    Thanks again for letting us know right away about the problem :)

    But now I can't save using the Generator. :( Getting the same 'Something when wrong" message.

    Tonight is just not my night it seems.

    Nah amaasing, there is a lot of backend changes going on...I say we tie Knight Grant MacGregor down to his keyboard and force feed him bananas until everything works perfectly.
    Of course now he may revert the whole thing back to before we made the changes :(
    We actually were able to add wavy lines for ordinaries tonight! (Yes Rufus we were thinking of you)

    Just kick back and hopefully tomorrow will be better :)

    Not to worry - add an apple to his diet to keep him regular.

    I made images of what I had in mind and posted them as requested here in the forum where I could get some input from you guys. Tomorrow works for me as well.

    Thanks!

    Amaasing, sorry for the disruption. Will fix first thing in the morning. Bananas and milk sounds great!

    I've managed to upload previously submitted and approved emblazons for avatars A-F.
    Starting on G now.

    They are going in as Unclaimed because we don't have email addressed to tie them to.

    Blazons are not there.
    I've got a file somewhere of blazons up to the time I retired.

    We'll get those loaded in as we find time.

    I have identified issues with permissions, and form validation is also not implemented everywhere (do to the upgrade). Will work on those this evening after work. However, you should be able to register accounts, create avatars, and save devices against those avatars.

    For those of you using IE 11 for your browser when you are viewing the Gallery Registered Blazons on www.sotacoa.com you will notice some distorted devices. It is a result of the way the browser views the image type. We know the about it and will try to create a work around next weekend. It was MUCH worse this morning before Grant was able to get a small adjustment into the code :)

    I've finished uploading previously approved devices, and devices submitted but not voted on.
    Some browsers seem to have problems with the files that are SVG format, so over the next few days I'll convert those to PNG.

    Designs submitted after I retired went to Ronan's temporary site. He'll be uploading those.

    The public gallery is rather large now.

    I have about 40 more to add!
    We threw another charge in there tonight, a modified yin yang SotA style. Just so you know that actually took about an hour to format. That's after the design created. So complicated to get the correct layering for these things.

    Let us know if there is something not working for you and we will add it to our list of things to do!

    Tahru, the first is the page of designs that have been submitted for registration. The second is the playground, devices players have made as experiments which does not mean any of them are registered.

    Your design is actually on the first page, but you don't see it yet. You will not until it is fully approved. As the site is undergoing lots of rework this week it may take awhile :) Don't worry :)
