CustomsForge Newsletter (Issue 1 | Aug 2018)
I apologize for the late response I've been working my ass off at a few temporary jobs.
Thank you for reading this update! I'm going to discuss a few things here:
DDoS Attack & Discord Raid
Lately, we've been targeted via Discord "raids" (where bots spam our discord) and DDoS attacks.
Our amazing team of Administrators and Moderators have been keeping an eye on this and have been resolving these issues as they occur. Unfortunately, I don't know why we are being targeted.
We will keep an eye on this and work on fixing it asap.
The website was down a couple days ago due to our server company accidentally suspended our servers for 'late payment' even though it's not due until the end of the month. We reached out to them and corrected this. To make sure it doesn't happen again we're setting up a new donation goal to get it paid off asap.
You can donate via http://customsforge....th-august-goal/
Any amount helps, thank you!
We ran a test of the new google ads and saw it was extremely annoying on multiple areas of the website. We've reverted those and are solely using Sovrn for now. If you could whitelist us on your browser it would help a lot!
The current progress of the rewrite has slowed down but I plan on making sure we speed things up again even if that includes getting more front-end developers on board to help assist.
Rule Update on Covers
We've updated our rule for CDLC covers of DLC, more info here:
We currently have two stores. One store is for US Customers, and the other store is for international.
All of that info is here: http://customsforge....ng/#entry288261
The US store is shirts only, and the international store also ships to the US but has other things like bags, stickers, etc.
Updates via Newsletter
I plan on creating a monthly update newsletter soon to provide updates on the website, featured CDLC, and more! I'll have more info on this soon as we work on it. The newsletter will still be posted in this section as well.
I am considering this issue 1 of the newsletter and we will add more to it in the future.
Thanks for reading this update and we're working hard on bringing more features to the website!
Keep rockin! \m/
