Mobile App Status

Browsing, watching, and chatting as a guest is completed. Login/Signup along with some navigation tweaks and finishing the ad integration are still to be finished. Decided ability to broadcast from the app will not be in the initial release but rather in an update at a later time. The goal is to get a barebones app out as quickly as possible and then improve upon it from there. Android is being released first. iOS is planned later on.

Thanks for being patient!

Puffin Browser & Chat Connections

If you’re using Puffin Browser to view Vaughn Live, your chat may not load due to the way Puffin connects to TCP servers. Our system blocks subnets that it deems as a VPN or Proxy.

Subnet bans aren’t new, so why the change? Some idiot forgot to add a line of code to the chat server software that checks for subnet bans :X

Website Outage

Literally left the house and the sites went down. Just got back home, looking into issue now.

UPDATE: Servers in the Atlanta datacenter are down. I’m unable to access them remotely. Waiting on datacenter.
UPDATE 2: Router hardware failure in Atlanta datacenter. No ETA on fix.
UPDATE 3: Pinpointed the issue to a wide spread power outage in the datacenter which caused several cages to lose power entirely. Backup generators failed. They’re on the floor working to restore power right now, some cages have already come back online.
UPDATE 4: Sites are slowly coming back online. Not quite there, but almost!
UPDATE 5: It appears things have stabilized. I’m already working on a solution to prevent this from affecting us again in the future.
