For those following along on a more technical level; this upgrade is a modification of the souls for user comment/submission/thing lists to be deterministic rather than randomly generated by gun.

This allows for stricter validation rules and prevents against potential bugs in adverse network conditions (due to recreation of the node at a different random soul)

Logging in is necessary to make the upgrade happen because your account data is cryptographically signed by your identity and I don't have the keys to do the upgrade for users.

The code that actually manages the upgrade is here:

That code and support for non-deterministic SEA souls in nab's schema will be removed next month.

So turned out the new indexer approach made all of this a moot point btw, this post was true at the time I made it but later improvements made the actions here not matter.

Hope to get set up this weekend with a frontpage of t/all/hot

Is that going to be a full peer or just a redirect?

[]go1dfish -2 points

I don’t want it to be just a redirect, it’s probably going to be a render only peer on the same machine still powered by the same indexer with a different default space owner.

You might have an old dns record cached.

What url did you get this error on?

Looks like this was a bug on it's still having some issues but every page but the frontpage should work for now.

Interesting. I hope this is better than voat. Does anybody know how to get night-mode RES and stuff working?

[]go1dfish -2 points

RES isn't gonna work here despite the close appearances to reddit.

For dark mode see:

I'm working on better support for custom themes and CSS; but there are security concerns with that.

Security or decentralization concerns?

question, will my login still be safe and will I still be able to get in?

[]go1dfish -10 points

Yes, there is no account vulnerability involved here; and nothing about this upgrade (or lack of it) will affect your ability to log in now or in the future.

Edit: On a similar note though, if you haven't logged in since November or so though there are some GUN/SEA account upgrades that will happen on login that are needed to keep your account safe. That's separate from what I'm talking about here. FrontPageGuardian discovered a vulnerability in SEA that could allow for locking people out of their accounts before that upgrade.

That GUN/SEA upgrade is backwards incompatible for older peers (so once you do it your login won't work on older peers); but I don't think any are still around right now.

-16 Somewhat Important: If you have created a notabug account in 2018 you should log in and post/comment/chat at least once so your account data can be upgraded/migrated for a new format. Otherwise 2018 content will not be visible on your profile pages after 2019/02/11
