Site Issues & Changes 

site repair

Morning, firstly we here at Brick Fanatics would like to apologies for yesterdays, slowness and downtime. We had a major issue which was causing our hosting CPU Usage to be a 100% causing the site to time out or act real slow. It took a while to find the route of the problem but hopefully it is now fixed and everyone can access the site.

While the site was suffering these issues it allowed me time to work on a few minor changes to the site. We have switched to a lime green and gray colour scheme so we match our sister site Brick Badger. Our logo has had an update and the main part of the site is now all one instead of being one main block for content and each sidebar element having their own block as well.

I have removed the login and register links to the site as we have for sometime been using Disqus for our comments, which is a 3rd party software and does not require registration to the site. You simply connect to Disqus by email or your preferred social network and you are good to go. The only people who now need to login are staff members.

We will focus on making the mobile theme work again and be sure that is our next point of call regarding bugs etc.

As always any feedback, good or bad please let us know. Finally I would like to introduce to you our new site icon/mascot, he currently does not have a name but if you have a good idea then post below the one we pick will be sent a 2014 polybag. Thanks to madoyster for the icon
