Nendonesia Update: Blog Migration, Layout Change, Forum Partially Enabled

New blog layout

New blog layout

Firstly, we would like to say HAPPY EASTER! Yes, it is a bit late, but considering what we had gone through on the weekend, we hope you forgive us for the late greeting. XD

Anyway, this recent weekend was one of our most challenging week ever. The whole server went down due to some network attacks and the blog was not accessible at all. There were some huge news, tipped by both our readers and partners, but we could not post it to the blog due to the server problem.

Some of you might also remember about the “Site is Offline” problem and other issues happening to the blog recently. It happened just after we were using a Content Delivery Network (CDN) service provider to enhance the blog’s performance as well as caching stuff so that when the server got some hiccups, you would still be able to access the blog as usual. It turned out that the provider caused us more troubles rather than improvement.

Thankfully, the aforementioned problems were things in the past; we have migrated to another service provider which are famous for its reliability. Yep, in case you have not noticed yet, the blog is now proudly hosted by WordPress.com, one of the most popular and widely used blog service. Yay! ^^

We have also done a few tweaks under the hood as well as a small layout refresh. What do you think about the new theme, Nendonesian? XD

By the way, Nendonesia Forum has been enabled partially now. New user registration is still disabled until we find a way to prevent the automatic (bot) sign-ups. Registered (and logged-in) users can still access the forum as usual though – creating new threads, replying to posts, private-messaging, etc. Oh, and we temporarily change the forum address to: http://forum.animaster-talks.net until we finished setting up stuff. XD

Well then, we would like to thank you, Nendonesian, for always supporting us. ^^

The Site is Online Again!

Umm … kindly ignore her rambling, Nendonesian. She’s been behaving like that since yesterday. ^^;

OK, let’s get to the main point: The site was not accessible since yesterday until just now, because the hosting company were doing some kind of migration to a new server. Therefore, there are also some new configurations in the new server which made Nendonesia unaccessible for some reason.

Fortunately, due to the efforts from the hosting’s technical staff, the site is now up and running as usual. Sorry for the inconveniences and thank you for your patience and support, Nendonesian. m(_ _)m

Nendoroid Petit Hatsune Miku?

Yep, we are still in New Year euforia and that’s why there are no Nendoroid news recently. That is why I decided to take a look at some of Nendonesia’s site stats for 2010 and write a summary of it.

There is something interesting in our Top Posts (most popular articles) stats of 2010: Insight-categorized articles were read by quite a lot of visitors there. Should we write more Insight articles, Nendonesian? ^^

In any case, here are Nendonesia’s Top 10 Posts for 2010:

Nendonesia Gets Official Logo, Finally!

Nendonesia's new logo!

Nendonesia's new logo!

Since Nendonesia was launched back then in July 2010, it has never had an official logo. I simply used a Black Rock Shooter-themed logo temporarily because Nendonesia’s launch date was almost at the same time with Black Rock Shooter’s OVA premiere. Now Nendonesia has finally had an official logo, thanks to my brother for the design and rendoroid for the feedback. ヽ(´▽`)/

Anyway, we are going to celebrate it by holding a photo contest (you should have probably known it if you visited our Facebook Page ^^) and the details will be announced today … so stay tuned, Nendonesian! ^^

Note: What do you think about our new logo, Nendonesian? Kindly share your thoughts on the comment.

What’s New: Domain, Gallery, and Flickr Group

Aside from some wallet-blowing Nendoroids news, we also have some updates to the site. First, we are no longer a subdomain of animaster-talks.net, because we have got a brand new domain: Nendonesia.com. As the domain name suggests, this site is initially a community blog for Indonesian Nendoroid collectors, but it is an open community, so if you have passion on Nendoroids, then you are more than welcome to express yourself here. ^^

New Gallery section

New Gallery section

The second update is Gallery section, which is a showcase of photos pulled from our brand new Flickr Group. Hopefully the photo gallery could collect all Nendo-photos taken by Nendo-lovers, especially from Indonesia. For Nendo-photographers out there, feel free to join our Flickr Group and submit your Nendo-photos there. ^^
