QUOTE (Kid-Wolf @ Oct 28 2014, 06:46 PM) Okay then what would be the reason as to why the forum's icons are down then. Heck even the FTV banner of Mikuru is not showing up either. Got any idea as to why it's like that Maiku-san.
I mean the only thing I can think of is that there could of be some coding between the two servers or something, but I'm not even sure if that's right at all though.
We use a caching content delivery network infront of all the servers, this basically stores a temporary copy of things like images and text, when you load up a page, it sends that copy to you instead of getting it from ftv. This makes it faster, and these copies are in different places, again for speed. But this means that different people will go to a different copy.
These copies are deleted and remade from the ftv server after a certain time. Thats why some people like me get the site looking fine, but you don't. Some of the copies have already expired and been deleted. Eventually all of them will expire. This is totally automatic and we cannot prevent it. Sadly, we cannot easily get the copies back from it, but even if we could it would only be useful for the screenshots, and manually trying to download several thousand images is just not practical.
If you're seeing no icons or avatars, that would suggest these were being provided to the cache from the failed server. These should be on the main server as well, so in theory that's fixable. I stress in theory. But it could also mean that's one more thing we've lost.
