  1. Hey everybody, Thank you for all of the additional details. What was common in all of your stories was that the counter images were inaccurate on the forums but not in other locations. After further investigation, this is because the forums cache remote images served from non TDN Forums domain names. This cache was set to save images for 7 days and serve them as is, thus the inaccuracy in the counts. I have since lowered the cache to 1 day, the minimum setting but am looking to make this even lower for everybody's sanity. The obvious question is: why cache? I can't disable this caching mechanism altogether because these images are cached to make them "secure" (HTTPS). For example, an http:// image served on a secure https:// TDN Forums throws browser errors. To be fully HTTPS, every asset on the page displayed must also be HTTPS. So we "grab and cache" non-HTTPS remote images at the forums to essentially make them HTTPS. If that makes no sense, don't worry. Please give me a little extra time to investigate. I hope to have a permanent solution soon. In the meantime, counters displayed at TDN Forums will update now at least within a day. Rest assured that your counts are being displayed live everywhere else.
  2. @kayahtik @Yuiina @Zimmerchild @casperiscaptain @Scoobert_Doo Hey guys! Sorry for the trouble. Is this issue still persisting? I just unchecked/checked an avatar at Neoavatars and my counter updated both times, so I'm unable to replicate this issue. A hard refresh was an instant update for me on Google Chrome. For those of you who are still having issues, can you please copy and paste the direct image URL into your post that I can have a look at? Are you expecting it to be higher/lower than what it is? Did you try clearing your browser's cache? Try going to the checklists again and quickly uncheck + check to see if the systems update. This may have been a momentary hiccup.
  3. Hi everybody, Our RSS feeds have been showing topics from many different areas of TDN Forums instead of just one area. This has been fixed. Our RSS feeds are now displaying the correct content for Unreleased Neopets News, Crossword & Daily Puzzle Answers, and TDN Forums Announcements. All our RSS feed URLs have been updated and should be updated by any of your RSS clients that consume this data. We apologize for this inconvenience. Thank you for your patience throughout this transition. TDN Management
  4. Dear members, In accordance with modern web standards, TDN Forums is now being served over SSL, a secure connection. Your browser should say "HTTPS" in the URL and be marked as "Secure" by your browser. If you're not exactly sure what this means, it just means that TDN Forums is more secure than it was before. Thank you for being a part of TDN Forums. Enjoy and have fun! TDN Management
  5. Hey everybody! We apologize for the wonky appearance of the ALP front page since ~31 January. This had to do with our front page news export that is streamed from TDN Forums. We had to make some system changes. Now... we're in tip-top shape. It's all fixed. Thanks much!
  6. Hey everybody! We apologize for the wonky appearance of the Customization items database front page since ~31 January. This had to do with our front page news export that is streamed from TDN Forums. We had to make some system changes. Now... we're in tip-top shape. It's all fixed. Thanks much!
  7. Hey everybody! We apologize for the wonky appearance of the Battlepedia's front page since ~31 January. This had to do with our front page news export that is streamed from TDN Forums. We had to make some system changes. Now... we're in tip-top shape. It's all fixed.
  8. Hey all! As part of the TDN Forums upgrade, we have a new forum theme called Shift that allows you to select your own color scheme. Just click the paint brush in the forum header to add your own flair. Thanks for being a part! Best, Ian
  9. Dear visitors, We apologize for the brief moment of time where Neopets news, Faerie Crossword, and Daily Puzzle Answers were missing from TDN main site. This was due to a software upgrade involving our forum software, which exports this data to the main site. Rest assured... this information is back for your viewing pleasure. If you're interested, check out the latest updates from TDN Forums here. TDN Management
  10. News is back on the front page! Yay!
  11. Today is The Daily Neopets' 11th birthday! Thank you to all of our users, players, and site staff who have dedicated themselves to making the best Neopets help site over the last decade.
  12. This is a great idea. Although, I'm not sure that there's a way to get a complete listing of your SDB from Neopets without pagination (i.e. page-by-page). I doubt that Neopets will implement this type of functionality (a complete dump on a single page load). That's a lot of heavy lifting for their servers...
  13. We apologize that our Daily Dare counters have been acting up over the last several days. They have been fixed. And now we've brought back SIX STYLES from years past! To get your Daily Dare counter, make sure you have a myTDN account (if not, then register and activate), then go here to configure yours! We've also added two brand-new styles this year as well. Daily Dare Counters Daily Dare counters from year's past always have the same URLs, so don't worry about changing your counter URL year-to-year. We utilize universal URLs for counter images. No code changes necessary when you update your numbers at TDN!
  14. Hello, There have been multiple outages report at our datacenter throughout today that have affected the DNS connectivity to TDN Forums. We apologize for the downtime. If you're seeing this message, it means that the issue has been resolved and/or is no longer an issue. Thanks for sticking with us! Best, Ian
  15. Our Customization-related content, articles, and guides have moved! All of the articles and guides that had their happy home at the TDN Customization department have found their new home on the main site, located here. It's the same content, but please refer to the new location. Links that are currently located on the Customization department will forward you to the new location automatically. Thanks for helping us keep TDN cleverly organized! This is in preparation for our Customization database refresh and expansion to a full blown items database.
