Cause of 503s Possibly Established

By Cat333Pokémon on February 21, 2010

I have found the pattern: 503s occur daily at 4:00 PM PDT. In UTC (the time the server uses), this is 12:00 midnight. Because servers often have cron jobs that run at this time, I started moving vBulletin cron jobs like cleanup and birthday notices to 9:00 AM UTC (about the quietest part of the day). A week or so ago, FreezeWarp recommended I run all of them one by one to find out whether any of them caused a forum blackout. None of them caused outages and the errors continued promptly at midnight. Just today, I thought about server jobs and why only the forum goes down.

Then it hit me: the forum has a very large database. None of the other sites have one anywhere near its size, thus they only are down for about 10-15 seconds. The daily backups cause the downtime! Hopefully, we'll be able to move these to around 11:00 AM UTC, so they occur after the forum cron jobs and before the activity begins going back up.

So, the 503s were actually something good, just not running at the right time. With that, I should point out that the forum will be going down daily for scheduled maintenance at midnight UTC. (I know it's a terrible time. We're working on moving it!)

Pokémon Sunday February 20, 2010 - Nothing revealed

By MasterDVD007 on February 20, 2010

Today's Pokemon Sunday show didn't revealed nothing new, they just showed the real look of the Silouhtte that is Zoroark, and then they showed the pre-evolution of Zoroar, Zorua.


Now the new Pokemon Movie 13 will be called as Pokemon Champion Phantom Zoroark and they showed their anime artwork as well.

They showed that some of the extra-missions of Pokemon Ranger Tracks of Light, all the extra-mission Pokemon can be transfered to the Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold or SoulSilver versions.

If you capture Deoxys in less than 4 minutes, when you transfer it, it will have an exclusive attack. By the way, the hosters of Pokemon Sunday were playing the Deoxys Special Mission.

And in the next week there will be aired the Pokemon Ranger 3 anime, where we will see the main male Ranger of Pokemon Ranger Tracks of Light as the protagonist.


And as well, they showed a bit of the new Pokemon Diamond & Pearl anime episode, in this episode the Gym Leader Volkner and the Elite Four member Flint will appear.


Hasta luego...



Need help with floatzel images.

By James on February 19, 2010

I was browsing the INTERNET for floatzel pictures for the new floatzel skin (Floatzel Resort) If you can find any sprites or any pictures that would look good WITH CLEAR BACKGROUNDS!! i'd appreciate it. I will check every single image that is posted and you must post the source of your site where you go the image. I don't feel like watching floatzel get sued for plagiarism.



New Section: Pokémon Trading Card Game

By Cat333Pokémon on February 19, 2010

After what has been dubbed a "scanning party" by several members of the forum, I have decided to create a TCG section on Floatzel.Net using the 116 images I gathered from the HeartGold & SoulSilver expansion.

While discussing this with KingOfKYA, I suddenly remembered a project that he had been working on to display family photographs on his personal site. It was an image gallery with thumbnails and resizing images. He offered to let me use the code for the card images. After about two hours of tweaking, it looks great on Floatzel.Net and works very nicely. Here it is:
Floatzel.Net: TCG

(Please note: The site will be undergoing revising soon, so the sections listing will look nicer.)



Reminder: Pokemon Ranger 3 out in Japan, March 6

By Winter on February 17, 2010

For those willing to import who lives outside of the USA, shopncsx.com and play-asia.com are good choices.

If you live in the United States, choose this site instead: Japan Video Games. Far faster shipping at the same price.



Calling all VB theme artists

By James on February 17, 2010

I've been looking over our skins and one thing comes to mind. We are floatzel.net and yet we have no floatzel skin. o_O. If any of you can make VB skins or know someone that can, can you kindly make one. We need something to symbolize our floatzel'ness. So whenever you get the chance PM me or cat with the skins. Thanks.



Important News Notice: Plagiarism

In an attempt to improve the integrity of Floatzel.Net and Victory Road, all news articles now require citation. Anyone not citing their sources may lose moderative powers; if you don't have moderative powers, you may be banned.

Plagiarism is a serious offense and I am treating it as such. We don't want any other Pokémon sites hating on us. (This is just a precaution for if it does happen.)

The Pokémon Company is working with DS2

By Yoshi648 on February 16, 2010

Recently a rumor popped up that some 3rd parties have started to receive development kits for the DS2. Well, it looks like The Pokémon Company got their hands on one. Nintendo claims that this is merely the first version for what will eventually be the final system. So far it has been said that it contains motion sensing technology.

So we will be getting a new DS soon and there will be Pokemanz on it.
