There have not been a lot of MOTD messages over the last few months. This time around, I'd like to announce that I wrote and installed a new ad system today. You shouldn't notice much of a difference, apart from some short server outages earlier on tonight. Oh, and there's a new banner, visible in the navigation bar on the right.

Apart from that, my life has been pretty busy; working fulltime, training most days of the week and [this might come as a surprise] working on script updates on a local Apache server. They should eventually be available online for further testing, but now might be the time to make requests for new features. :)

HTML4/CSS support is on my list, and won't disappear, so start bugging Amiga browser authors to finally support these long-established standards. :) Visitors will still be able to use all kinds of browsers, in fact even more so than before, it's just that the layout might look more primitive on HTML 2/3.2 browsers (read: there will be an almost complete seperation of content and layout, the latter mostly implemented via Cascading Stylesheets).

For reasons I'm not quite sure of, ANN was not accessible from sometime early this morning to around 9pm CET. The solutions was trivial (a simple chmod), but I'm not sure what could possibly have changed access permissions in the first place.

In unrelated news, ANN recently recorded the 5,000th posting and 3.5 million graphical visitors. In September, there were about 361,000 requests for pages.

[Motd] Weekend away / Stricter moderation?ANN.lu

I'm back from a track&field meeting in Tallinn (EST) - which is why there were no updates and no article moderation on ANN inbetween Friday and today.

Also, I'd like to emphasize a point that has recently arisen in the comments section: while I dislike the idea of strict moderation and removal of articles and comments, something needs to be done to stop a few people from turning any thread into a flamefest (and a bad one, at that), and ruin the visiting experience for everybody else. I will therefore adopt a slightly stricter moderation policy - starting with informal warnings, and pursuing other options if these do not yield positive results (Possibilities for this would be manual removal of comments, the possibility to filter anonymous posters or certain IP ranges, or have an ignore list. Alas, the last three would require a rewrite of the comments system and possibly the implementation of user accounts, which would be a massive task. And comments?)

Hi, Despite the fact that ANN is successfull when speaking about visit numbers I think it is bad in a number of ways that Christian or Teemu/I do not control.
In order to focus on something better for the Amiga platform I will leave this board for a while until the climate become better. I may still help Christian if required but won't be there everyday as I used to do.

[Motd] Counters and CommentsANN.lu

Despite being wildly inaccurate and not representative of actual pageviews, it's still worthwhile noting that ANN's graphical counter recently crossed the 3-million mark. Meanwhile, my server logs indicate that about 12,500 pages are displayed every day, to over 40,000 distinct hosts this month. Since ANN went dynamic in 1998, over 4500 items and over 58,000 comments have been posted.

In mostly unrelated news, I had to adopt the flat view of the comments script to only serve ten pages at a time. With individual items getting up to 500 comments at times, this was a necessary step to maintain tolerable loading times.

[Motd] Unmoderated and Forum disabled by defaultANN.lu

Starting April 21st, Unmoderated and Forum categories are no longer being displayed on ANN's main page by default, but need to be "opted in" - either by manually clicking on the relevant link, by changing your preferences and bookmarking the resulting page, or by saving the preferences in a cookie. What this also means is that you might need to manually review the Unmoderated and Forum sections before submitting any news to avoid double posts. Normally, postings that comply with posting guidelines are moved from Unmoderated to a more relevant category within a few hours. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation, and please let me know if you encounter any problems or need additional explanation or help.

With my March holiday madness behind me, I'm finally (and somewhat reluctantly) back at home. This afternoon, I cleaned up the HTML code a bit (it now passes "HTML 4.01 transitional" validation) and added a new "forum" category into which any new postings will be moved when they don't really fit into other categories.
Traffic-wise, ANN received about 725,000 hits and delivered over 321,000 pageviews to almost 45,000 distinct hosts in the first 30 days of March.
