Merch Store Moved

29 March 2017 - 07:37 PM

Hey all,

I've moved our merch store from RedBubble to Teepublic to save our community money when purchasing merch. We will be moving it again to Amazon once we are accepted. But for now enjoy major sales of all our merch via here: http://tee.pub/lic/z-iLI3-X0Z0

If you have any ideas for shirts please let us know (PM ME). We cannot use copyrighted terms such as rocksmith in our shirts as rocksmith is a shirt brand company, and we don't want to run into trouble with ubisoft. If you want to submit a design that is welcome as well, please note any submitted designs will be the property of ours, but you will get credit in the description. 

If you any questions hit me up on our discord and I'll be happy to answer them.

Survey Results & Q&A

11 March 2017 - 03:08 PM

Q: The forum theme is too dark.
A: We do have an alternative theme available. Go to the bottom of the website and select "Change Theme"
Q: When do you plan on introducing a rating system.
A: The new IgnitionFUSE has a feature similar to a rating system, but instead will rely on "liking" CDLC. If there is an issue with CDLC it will be reported to the author, and eventually moderators to take down.
Q: When is the forum upgrade
A: The forum upgrade is in progress. We're actually working on redoing the auth system for our forums so when we complete this the forums will be upgraded.
Q: When will IgnitionFUSE be released?
A: After the forums are upgraded we plan on beta testing ignitionfuse to the public once the new forums and auth system is complete.
Q: Where do I go when the site is down?
A: We announce downtime to everyone on Facebook & Twitter
Q: Better tutorials and guides.
A: This is a highly requested feature that is high on our priority list. We plan on doing something about this soon.

A: This is already possible, you don't need to. 
Q: I want guitar tabs of my rocksmith songs

A: This is the auth fix we're working on. It will also be officially fixed in IgnitionFUSE
Q: Thanks System
A: This will be included in our like system, we will improve it upon feedback.

A: This is a feature I actually planned several months ago, but is not possible at the moment. With the new ignitionFUSE we will enable it! 
Q: Please use something other than paypal
A: We would need a popular suggestion that other people would donate to as well.
Q: I want to block bands I don't like and not have them listed in ignition.
A: I actually haven't seen this yet and will pass this along!
Q: Please do not remove the group forums feature
A: From what I have found, there is a new version for IP Board 4. We will see if we can get it to work.
Q: A mobile interface for ignition

Growing Pains

11 March 2017 - 12:04 PM

As you are fully aware by now CustomsForge was completely down for over 24 hours due to a catastrophic backup failure. We worked with our host (Linode) to resolve this but unfortunately, it took 10 hours to just restore the files. We have a lot of upgrades for CustomsForge and we will be working on adding more fail safes to prevent problems like this happening in the future. As we grow into a bigger website we must evolve, and to do so we must upgrade our forums and ignition. During our upgrades, we ran into several problems, and unfortunately we learned about them days after. We were forced to roll back to a backup we took on March 5th. We still need to do these upgrades but we will be working closely with our board software support staff this time to fix the bug that caused these issues. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to ask us on our discord. We will be attempting these upgrades again, but in a different method which will reduce any future downtime if any problem was to occur again. (Example would be 30-minute downtime~ instead of 24 hours)
(p.s. if my wording sounds weird, I've been working on this non-stop for 24 hours trying to get this fixed for you guys, no sleep until I made sure our community is fixed! #exhausting)
