Planned THN downtime - 14th May 2014 - Complete
Site News
Written by Brammers   
Tuesday, 13 May 2014

The THN will be offline between 19:00 and 21:00 BST on Wednesday 14th May so the THN website can be moved back to it's normal home server.

For those who are not aware, the normal server used to host the THN suffered a disk failure in the RAID 1 mirror, and the THN has been temporarily hosted on a different VPS. The failed disk has now been replaced.

None of the THN will be accessible during this downtime while the DB's are backed up and data transferred back to the home server. The DNS records will be updated during this time, which should refresh after an hour. However some users may find their DNS records not refreshing sooner and will be advised to flush their DNS.

For upto the minute updates, follow @techhaven on Twitter. 

Update: 14th May 21:05BST - Transfer done!

New! Outpost Travel Adviser

Tuesday, 16 July 2013

Have you ever had to click through the whole of your GenRep list to find an open outpost?

Or have you travelled to an outpost, only to find it is locked down so there is no outpost bonus?

Those days are over...

Thanks to the information available from the Neocron API, the Tech Haven Network brings you the Outpost Travel Adviser.  You tell it a little about your runner and the Outpost Travel Adviser will tell you which outposts are open. If you require a specific outpost bonus, it will tell you which outposts are open and giving the bonus you require.

The outpost travel adviser is available for everyone to use on the Stats DB. Any bugs or issues, please report them on the THN Forums.

 
The new THN forums

A few weeks ago, we upgraded our forums, and now thought it was time to tell you about our new THN forums.

Our rather old and highly customised forums have now been upgraded to run on phpBB3. This project was planned to be done back in 2008. For various reasons the project has been delayed so I hope no-one minds this project being 5 years late. ;)

However we would like you to tell us what you think of the new forums, so we wouldn't mind some feedback in this thread.

Finally I would like to thank everyone over at the Phoenix Forums for testing the new code and skin, and also a big thanks to nEo-1664 who did a lot of the hard work in getting the new skin for the forums sorted.

The Rares DB is now back online.

As the THN authenication has been upgraded, before you can login to the Rares DB, you will need to upgrade your password. You can do this by logging into the THN Forums first . Once this is done you can log back into the rares DB again.

This step only needs to be done once. Any bugs or issues, please report them in the forums.

Wiki pages cleanup and emails
Wiki
Written by Brammers   
Wednesday, 17 April 2013

Today I did a cleanup of the User pages within the THN Neocron Wiki . I have removed any empty pages within the UserTalk namespace or the User namespace. Only pages that had a few edit on them with messages on the lines of “Welcome to the wiki” have been removed, and nothing of value has been lost.

However you may have received an email to say the page has been changed, and when you click to view the page, you get a message saying the page is missing. You can safely ignore this email and my apologies for the emails being sent.

If you want to view the deleted pages, you can by login into the wiki and going to your user page. The link to view or restore deleted pages will be there, and you can choose to restore them if you want.

Thanks goes to wiki user Ashrid for flagging up the emails being sent. Any questions or issues leave a message on my Talk Page.

 
THN user accounts cleanup

Sunday, 10 March 2013

I've just done a cleanup of inactive and unused users on the THN.

We have only removed accounts if the account has:-

  • Never used the forums (Such as posting or PM'ing)
  • Has no parts or items logged in the rares DB

The cleanup should not effect regular users of the THN. However if in the past you have just registered a username to reserve it, you will have to re-register it. However please keep in mind we will regularly run scripts to cleanup unused accounts.

Any questions on the accounts cleanup, please contact us on the THN forums.
