We are planning to do a code push late this weekend, at approximately 8pm PDT / 11pm EDT / 3am UTC on Sunday, Apr 30 (or May 1 for you transatlantic types.).

I don't have a list of changes for you yet, but most will fall into the following categories: things users have complained about to support volunteers, things support volunteers have complained about to developers, things [staff profile] denise has complained about not working the way she expects them to (and as we all know, The Boss is Always Right), and things that were printing warnings over and over in the production server logs, making it hard to spot when less frequent, more urgent errors were being printed. Oh, and also all the unused code I ripped out at the roots, which if you notice that, I did it wrong.

To sum up: we are rolling out a bunch of requested changes, so thank you all for your feedback!

If you're new to Dreamwidth and interested in tracking our development process, our commit logs are published to [site community profile] changelog and [community profile] changelog_digest, and every month or so, one of our volunteers will translate those often-cryptic entries into witty, informative code tours! The most recent one was published on April 1, so we're about due for a new one. Hint, hint.

We'll update here again to let you know when the code push is imminent!

Anyone want a fight?

William Douglas is going to be coming into the bar very soon in a explosively bad mood, and uh, he's about ready to start a fight with anyone. I've got security already on the phone to haul him in as needed, but--anyone want a fight?

He's not looking for friendly sparring to blow off a little steam, he's looking to make Bad Choices.

It's rainy and foggy here and Milliways is full of old and new friends. I'm going to hit some highlights but share what you've been tracking and finishing.

Gabriel Tam returns to Milliways with hopeful news and Galadan prepares for a new step.

Barry starts to figure out this heroing job.

A sparring match between two Guardians and a Sith, I love the enthusiasm of everyone in this thread.

It's been a little quiet around here as the Minority President's administration has become the new normal and has stopped blowing up in a big way every other day. Or that's my impression anyway.

I'm still using ResistBot to tell my Congress people that I support Obamacare and that healthcare should be a right. But I'm starting to feel a little stale on that topic, so I'm probably going to start talking about my support for the EPA because I like clean air and clean water.

I was wondering what other issues folks are talking to their Congress people about. What's near and dear to your heart?

 Sorry, this DE is slightly late because I had to thwap a computer virus.

Which brings me to today's subject: what kind of behaviour or event brings your characters into battle mode and spurs them to action, no matter what? It's their berserk button and it makes them GO.

I am sore from gardening yesterday so today's topic comes from [personal profile] ceitfianna (as given in the DE Suggestion box).

An old favorite but what's your type of pup? What kinds of characters are you drawn to? Are there some types you love but don't work for RP or aren't easy for you to make work?

Write your own thoughts and then others can tag you and tell you what they consider your type. Or make this a tagging in one where you list your pups and others tell you what they think is your kind of pup.

Weekly Check In April 23

Yesterday -- Earth Day -- saw tens of thousands of people March for Science in hundreds of places around the world, celebrating science and protesting the Minority President's proposed cuts to federal science and research budgets. Those cuts will form part of the new budget which Congress needs to pass when it returns this coming week. The likely sticking points are the Mexican Wall and funding for the ACA, while there are plans to revive the repeal of the ACA before the administration's 100th day on April 29.

TODAY, SUNDAY APRIL 23: ACLU People Power is holding deportation solidarity events outside regional ICE offices at 3 p.m.

Housekeeping
Reminder that we have a suggestion post if there’s a topic that you’d like to see discussed but would like to ask the mods to look into. This can be anything from general information, or a how-to-do-a-thing, or something you may want to discuss as a community. Folks are welcome to post directly to the comm as always, but if you’re not comfortable/don’t have spoons, we can help too.

It's been quite quiet in the comm this week, but here are some reminders of ongoing or future actions

Action
Public Participation in EPA's Regulatory Reform - Deadline: 15 May 2017

Upcoming Protests

April 29: Peoples Climate March - see these posters for National Parks in 2050 if climate change continues for inspiration and slogans.
June 11: LGBT+ March

Other news to know
There's been a steady drip feed of minor new revelations about the Trump Campaign's Russian links, the situation with North Korea rumbles on, and Syria is still a mess. For a catch up to the major developments each day, What the Fuck Just Happened Today usually provides good links to the key stories.

French voters go to the polls today to pick the two candidates for the run-off on May 7, and the UK government has called a snap general election on June 8. (I'm in the UK and this just makes me want to cry, because our opposition parties are so dysfunctional at the moment. I think my main hope is that the early signs the centre/left are figuring out how to build the kind of resistance movements, like Indivisible, that you've seen in the US will bear fruit -- if not for this election, for the long term.)

So, what have you all been up to in the last week or planning to get involved in next week?

ACLU People Power has organized deportation solidarity event outside regional ICE offices tomorrow, Sunday, April 23rd at 3 p.m.

I know there's one in Boston, and a quick check found others in New York and Seattle. (The website isn't set up to search for events by date or time; I found those two by searching based on my old NYC and Bellevue, WA, zip codes.)

The Boston event looks small so far: 121 of us have signed up to attend, so I figure I'll be more noticeable there than I would be if I'd made it to the March for Science today.

Note: this was originally announced for April 22nd, and then rescheduled a couple of days ago.

If your character could choose a superpower--an additional superpower, for some of them--what would it be?

The importer has (mostly) caught up!

Our content importer has mostly caught up with its backlog; almost everything that's still listed as being "in the queue" are jobs that were tried, failed once or more with a temporary failure, and are waiting to try again. (The importer tries a few times, at successively longer intervals, when it gets a failure it thinks might be temporary/might correct itself later on.) This means that new imports scheduled now should complete in hours (or even minutes), not the "several days" it's been taking.

If you tried to schedule a second import while the first one was still running, at any time in the past 10 days or so, you may have confused the poor thing. If you think your import should be finished by now and it isn't, and you're seeing "Aborted" on the Importer Status part of the Importer page, feel free to open a support request in the Importer category and we'll look into it for you. (It may take a little bit before you get a response; those of us who have the access to look into importer problems have been really busy for the past two weeks or so, and I at least need a few days to catch my breath a bit before diving back into the fray! But we'll do what we can.)

I hope all y'all are continuing to settle in well to your new home!
