Increased update schedule

Good news, everyone! Gaia will be updated every Tuesday and Friday (instead of the current 2 – 1 – 2 – 1 cycle) from 1 October until at least 31 December.

Ongoing webserver problems

Unfortunately, the webserver issues are more severe than I thought. There might be a problem that some script running on the website requires too many resources. Therefore I have deactivated all WordPress plugins and the comment section. It will take a while until all features will be activated again since increasing the stability of the webserver is now the most important goal.

Comments from yesterday gone

The webserver running had a serious storage malfunction and was offline for a couple of hours because of it. All your comments made after Tuesday, 24 September 2013, 01:30 CET, are gone. My latest database backup is exactly two hours older so there is nothing I can do to bring them back. I think my webhost Hosteurope handled the issue well. A technician had a look at the defect server although it’s 1 o’clock after midnight here in Germany.

Sketch of Lilith and another wizard

Results of the fanart contest 2013 – Top 10

I finally made up my mind about the winners of the Sandra and Woo and Gaia fanart contest 2013. It really was one of the hardest decisions of my life ;).

As you can see, technical skill wasn’t the sole factor for determining the winners, I also acknowledged clever ideas. Also don’t miss all the other submissions we received.
