Is Apterous down? [GENERAL DISCUSSION THREAD]

Post by Gavin Chipper » Thu May 07, 2020 4:12 pm

This thread is for general discussion about the downness of Apterous, especially when it might be inappropriate to post in the other thread which has such strict entry criteria.

Enjoy!

You can post whatever you want in here, since it isn't configured to send me an alert. It's also completely pointless since I won't see it. Enjoy!

That's a shame, because Apterous is currently down.

[strike]Is the game side of Apterous down? The website is up, but I can't get into the game. Moreover, a look at chat logs shows this is possibly an issue with displaying to the user, as there's lots of coming and going but no playing.[/strike]

Edit: just as I post this, it's up again.

As I said, there is no point whatsoever posting in this topic.

But what if one wants to discuss the general upness or downness of Apterous? What if one wants to wonder whether Apterous is, or indeed is not, down? And were that it were numberwang...

THE GREAT PRO-RANKS CONSPIRACY

Post by L'oisleatch McGraw » Fri Sep 04, 2020 12:27 am

Theories so far:

1. Someone Charlie despises finally climbed to #1, and he is in a massive sulk.
2. We are getting a major Pro-Ranks upgrade / overhaul... and it takes time.
3. They're not coming back. Participation awards for all. Rating numbers next to go; due to be replaced by 'care' emojis.
4. They now live at a secret link, available to 'Sanctum' members and Jack Hurst's Zoomdown-y pals only.
5. Police raid! (Once they're fully convinced the 'pro' refers to something other than bottom bitches, it'll be back.)
6. Ashton Hancock of course!
7. Or maybe it was Ronan... because "Ro's prank"?

Hmmm, get your tin foil hats on immediately... We need to get to the bottom of this!!! (bitches)

Yep, exactly this. For your information, I am a secret Admin, have been for 12 years, we used to have small (unlogged) chats in aptochat at the beginning, I kept pulling pranks on the couple of members who were on. I was also nicknamed Ro. We needed a name for a list of ranked players at the beginning. I had always been trying to work out the max from ROS PRANK
for weeks before the ranking idea came, and the day before the first list of pro ranks I fell asleep during the day, in my dream I was on the show, and found out PRORANKS was the maximum in a round. When I woke up, I remembered it, and logged straight into apto, told the couple of members on the site at the time, and Pro Ranks were made. The reason why the Pro Ranks went shall remain a mystery.... But, more importantly, what gave you, Mr McGraw the idea of Ro's Prank? Are you good friends with any of the other admins, or.... are you one of them? :o
