Just wanted to let everyone know that we've got search indexing working again. Near as I can tell, it looks like the problem was due to a couple of corrupt nodes (out of about 60,000) causing the search index function to throw an exception, and then stop dead. I've patched the Drupal instance it so if it ever runs into this issue again, it'll log a warning and keep indexing.
At any rate, the short version is that everything should be indexed now, so search should be useful again. We'll keep an eye on it and make sure it continues to work properly.
We have recently resolved a bug where some accounts were not showing up in the approval queue. This mostly affected people who changed their profile details, and we believe we have now resolved the issue for most people. If you have been waiting a long time for approval please let us know in the comments so our admins can look into it for you.
Thanks for your time.
There was an old, unused test Drupal instance that was sitting on the server unpatched, with a couple of PHP scripts sitting in the files directory, including one that was meant to send outgoing mail. I've removed the test instance in question and started the mail server back up. It's always possible that I didn't get everything, so please let me know here in a comment (or in a private message) if you receive any more suspicious emails from OGA.
Hi. I got word an hour or two ago that the site was sending out phishing emails to OGA user accounts. If you have recently received a sketchy, poorly-spelled email that starts with "Your Acount is disabled for the purposes of security", you can safely assume that your account was not, in fact, disabled for the purposes of security, and under no circumstances should you provide anyone with any of your passwords, particularly information pertaining to your "Peypal" account, as the email calls it.
I have currently disabled the mail server on OGA until I can assess the extent of the hack. Since they managed to get a complete list of account emails, it's safe to assume that they also grabbed (hashed) passwords, so you should consider your OGA password compromised and change it wherever you're using it, particularly if you're using it with the email address that you used to sign up to OGA. Until I've determined the source of the intrusion, it's probably best to hold off on changing your OGA password.
I'll post another blog entry as soon as I know more.
Update: As of 12 hours later, the malware scan I'm running on the server is about half done. I'll post an update when it's finished.
I saw this last night and thought I'd share: The British Library has a Flickr account with over a million public domain images, here:
The images are all pretty old, so how useful they'll be for your game depends entirely on what kind of aestheic you're going for, but there's a wealth of excellent stuff there. In particular, I recommend poking through the Albums section, where you can find items that have been sorted into categories.
