    I've not done an update in a while so here goes. We will soon have animated gifs. They will not auto play but will be click to play. Hopefully they don't get annoying. All the other work is to get direct links to comments. It's a slightly more complex problem than I expected. But it will help with alerts also. My plan then is to clean the alert system up so it's easier to manage and its been untouched for a very long time. Off to Lancaster tonight. Have a good day everyoneπŸ˜ƒ

    We currently use a Comodo SSL certificate for Pjuu. This is only because we didn't have time to implement Lets Encrypt. But this is a dick move: https://letsencrypt.org//2016/06/23/defending-our-brand.html. Time to migrate I think.

    Well today in the UK we all decide if we want to stay in the EU. I will be voting later when back from work. I hope we stay will be disappointing if we don't.

    Will be finishing off the design tomorrow and hopefully rolling it out unless there is any objections. I posted a similar picture a few months ago last time I tried to make this change but here we go. Hopefully it will appeal more to non-techy users. I'm also proposing a new strap line. We have had the strap "An open-source social thing" to "The open social network". Your thoughts would be much appreciated.

    Going to be cleaning up the auth pages and adding some information to the landing page today. That's the plan, lets see how far I get πŸ˜€

    Arghh... I caught a cold at the festival and I think it is going to be the end of me (over exaggeration). @sarah had it too. I forgot how crap having a cold is.

    A tip for everyone: You can get direct links to your images by viewing it in full screen (desktop only). You can then post the image link other places. This also works for approved posts as images are unprotected for caching purposes.

    For all VK users here. Change your password. https://thestack.com/security/2016/06/06/vk-100-million-clear-text-passwords-stolen/ very worrying that they are storing them unhashed and unsalted.

    Sorry the migration took a little longer than expected. My slow internet connection is to blame restoring the databases. Hope you have all made it back (I know you can't answer if not). Thanks for your patience.

    Hi all. Unfortunately the move is not going to be a smooth as we first though. There is a chance of site going down for ~30mins. I hope this won't be a problem. If your DNS refreshes quicker you will get access to the new servers faster πŸ˜€ see you all soon.

    I know this is a few posts in a row. But if any one is interested in helping out with Pjuu please let me know. We are not going to add any community moderators just yet (not enough users to warrant it) but if you want to learn how to commit some code, write a blog post or anything else please let me know. I'm more than willing to mentor any one who wants to start contributing to open source (will teach Python for upvotes 😜). We have Gitter if you want to chat https://gitter.im/orgs/pjuu/rooms

    @ant is coming up this weekend. Pjuu will be moving over to DigitalOcean from Linode to hopefully save some pennies and allow easier scaling. I can imagine there will be a lot of food, a few beers and an awful lot of systems engineering going on. Who says geeks can't have fun 😜
