Let's make a VERY useful stampboards CROWD FUNDING gesture!!

Post by Global Administrator »

.
I was just looking at the Admin log of downtime and outages for stampboards for the past 16 months, since our super MAJOR upgrade in mid 2020. We moved from the flaky and buggy and erratic servers in Oklahoma, and I see we have since had almost ZERO downtime or outages, due to our new robust and large private servers in the USA, with relay back-ups, and load sharing on both coasts there.

We have logged just a few minutes downtime in TOTAL over 16 months. An incredible achievement, given the large user and visitor traffic we have here, and the vast data storage and back-up now of 7.5 million messages.

Facebook and YouTube has literally been out of action way more than we have in 16 months! My BANK website here is down regularly. As are most Stamp Auction sites. stampboards is as solid as a rock.

Yuriy in New York as always keeps it all ticking along very smoothly in the background, and is just about to update us to the very latest phpBB software, with even more features. He sourced the hosting company after days of research, and chose SUPERBLY, I am sure all will agree. :!:

AND we will expand our storage to an ever larger server system, seeing we now have well over a MILLION images self-hosted on our own SUPER SECURE servers now - we are truly the Wikipedia of stamp collecting. 8-)

We are the WORLD'S number one Stamp Bulletin Board because of our million images, and the vast depth of MILLIONS of posts of content, and that costs money to do, and to back-up robustly and securely forever.

Yuriy is not even a stamp collector - he just likes us as a quirky fun project for him, and has helped out for a decade or more here, so I'd again encourage ALL members to do your bit, and fund a pizza and some beers etc via PayPal in ANY currency to - yuriy [at] rusko.org (Think of it as your oblique Stampboards Membership Fee, or Crowd Funding!)

Just 100 generous Community minded members sending only a modest $10 or $20 pays for a lot of his time, and shows he is appreciated by those here who benefit from HIS super back-room skills. Please do it NOW. CROWD FUNDING at its finest. A new issue stamp set at the PO costs that! :)

Think of just how many valuable things you have learned, shared, swapped etc, and the many new friends made here. All of them worth $20 or so now, I am certain. :!: :!:

All the US hosting is at my cost, and always will be, and that runs to many $1000s a year, but please do show your small personal appreciation for the tech whizz who keeps that all ticking along with no glitches in the background all year. He has quietly saved us from disaster MANY times over our long history, trust me. Spam attacks, hacking attempts etc, all foiled etc. :!:

Yuriy is one of the head coding and design developers globally of this phpBB board skeleton, used by millions of Bulletin Boards worldwide, most far smaller than this of course, and has customised the back-end of this version entirely for our needs - larger easy to read fonts given our demographic, added many different navigation buttons, very special attention to easy adding of images, and many other features not immediately obvious to the casual user.

I have never sent a text message in my life - true, and have never used Facebook or Twitter or Instagram, or had a Zoom meeting etc, so if you relied on my ''tech skills'', there would be a totally blank screen facing you right now! :mrgreen:

There Are NO Free Lunches In Life - so, please PayPal Yuriy a Pizza and some beers! yuriy [at] rusko.org .... PEOPLE POWER. 8-)

Add a note here you have done that if you wish - but even if it stays private please do assist, we/you owe Yuriy a LOT. :!:

Thanks in advance -

Glen Stephens - owner of www.stampboards.com

Thanks folks - the Community Spirit and generosity of stampboarders globally shines through - AS ALWAYS. :lol:

So far, we have Germany, Dubai, UK, Australia and Canada members stepping up. :!:

Hopefully a LOT more pizzas are on the way to Yuriy. Watch this space. The cost of paying any highly skilled tech whizz to do this specialised stuff on a commercial basis, would simply blow your mind. Just the last major upgrade alone in mid 2020 took over a HUNDRED hours of his time. That is before one adds the many $1,000s a year (we cannot dodge!) for our own USA based servers, that I pre-pay.

That is a $US10,000-$A13,500 time cost alone commercially, for just a major update. No way would the board be so useful and tailored and smooth running, if we used the bog basic version, as clearly impossible for that kind of outlay be funded ordinarily, on a totally FREE board.

We have had a lot of modifications custom created and tweaked for just our board, and they are often complex and tricky to code, and test and develop and integrate. But they do work, and they are perfect for our users. 8-)

I personally hate pop-up ads, bait links, and the insidious IP tracking and cookies and adware, that almost EVERY site on the planet now uses - except this one, and have resisted all attempts to sign me up for that, as if I hate them, I know others will too. :twisted:

There was a glitch with Yuri's PayPal account for a few hours after I posted this, and some earlier payments will have been returned to sender's account - as mine certainly was. All sorted now, but for those who donated before this post, please check your PayPal account, and see if the funds were bounced back to you - as mine was, with no advice from PayPal. I just re-did it, and all good. 8-)

All sorted now, so please show your appreciation to someone who is not even a stamp collector, and is VERY busy, at a CEO level of a massive tech operation, but who keeps stampboards running year after year - via PayPal in ANY currency to - yuriy [at] rusko.org - (Think of it as your oblique annual Stampboards Membership Fee, or Crowd Funding!)

Thanks in advance for your support - it all assists and shows Yuriy folks appreciate his input - do not leave it all to "others". :!:

Done.

Also I confirmed with Yuriy what I had suspected for a long time which is that image captions are not currently included in the onboard search function.

So all those people who have complied with Glen’s request to make life easy for Google etc to find the images without also putting text in their post, have made it impossible for anybody to find the images through the onboard search facility.

However Yuriy also said that it wasn’t a difficult thing to add in, which is good news for the hundreds of images on the Ireland stamps and FDC and other similar threads, which are mainly show but no tell.

Thanks Yuriy!

Yes folks like you with experience in this area Jon, will realise the 100 hours we spent merging from one host to another (a tug or war battle in itself, that took mannnnny hours!) and then the total upgrade to do after that, flies by REAL fast!

Thanks for everyone's generous support SO far!

I have also sent a contribution to Yuriy.

As norvic has pointed out, captions are not indexed by the Stampboards search engine. Several of us on the FDC threads used to provide detailed captions, as requested by Glen. BigSaint is the best example of the detailed description writer.

I stopped writing detailed descriptions when I discovered they were not indexed. If the search engine is modified to include the captions, please announce the change and I will restart writing detailed descriptors.

Thank you, Yuriy.

Yuriy asked me last week if we wanted the attachment CAPTIONS added to the onboard search database, and I told him I assumed they already were. No-one here had ever advised me there was an issue with them.

He said that is not an out-of-the-box feature of the phpBB platform, but like anything we need, he can write computer code to ensure that occurs on our version, and when it does, all past captions will be indexed too it seems.

So yes KEEP using detailed captions please! I assume when he makes them indexable somehow, that google spiders and bots will also then be able to access the words under each image - again I ASSUMED that was the case.

There are about 55 MILLION phpBB powered boards globally. Lots are essentially dead, lots are filled with spam, and MOST are the bog basic versions, with no 1000 hours of tech tweaking done on such features and coding and custom modifications on the back end like this, that Yuriy has done for us.

We update to the very latest version 3.5.5 shortly, and for the tech minded this is what that contains - make any sense to anyone here?! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks for the ongoing pleasing Community support folks. Keep it all coming please we have a large amount of work coming up this month behind the scenes.

Most have no idea how many detailed hours are burned behind the scenes, on such a seemingly simple thing like indexing captions etc.

This is all a total re coding of the way basic boards work. 99.99% of boards do not use it or need it, so it is not standard.

Due to our million plus images we already are far bigger than the basic image hosting supports, so Yuriy bolted on a program called Sphinx, and integrated it into the basic software.

That program is getting major overhauls and updates and improvements as we speak. For those who think just bolting these things on is simple - take a read of all this! Geeks talking to geeks in another language makes my head spin -

Thanks very much to everyone who has sent pizza money; it is very much appreciated! I am actively working on updating the forum to the latest version.

The server backend was also just updated, and should be running even smoother than before.

Glen has some excellent ideas for some improvements to the site, so those will be coming shortly as well!

You can test the updated version of the forum here: https://stampboards.com/3_3_5_new/

It should be very similar to the current site, but if anything is broken, then please let me know. Attachments won't show up because there isn't enough space to make a copy of that absolutely enormous directory :P

Note: All changes made there will disappear when the test is over; don't post anything of value.

I'll bump the pizza thread (hint!) and add a little note that the "edit posts" feature has apparently been changed (or defaulted back?) to something like 15-20 minutes rather than an hour, which was already short enough for someone like myself who keeps forgetting to add salient points. ;)

Thanks again!

The edit window was my error .... changed it back to the one hour we always had, that any member gets to edit any post of theirs. :mrgreen:

(Some boards have a ZERO option, to change any post made!)

The PREVIEW button is also there, that if used allows members to view their posts BEFORE it is added.

Thanks for keeping Yuriy in Pizzas folks .... he needs it, as we are doing a lot of work quietly behind the scenes right now!
