CrazyEngineers V.4.2.0 - Cloudy Moves

Published on Jul 24, 2021

  1. Moved CrazyEngineers server infrastructure to Amazon AWS ๐Ÿ˜Ž . We were hosted on AWS few years ago, but decided move to Digital Ocean. Will discuss this later in our private chats.
  2. Fixed security bugs.
  3. Adjusted archived threads publishing times to morning, afternoon and late evening. Earlier these times were randomly picked by our system resulting into a bunch of archives getting published at the same time.

CrazyEngineers V.4.2.1 - Ocenia Digitella

Published on Jul 28, 2021

  1. Migrated our mailing infrastructure from Digital Ocean to AWS. DO is a great service. However most of their IP addresses are added to UCEPROTECTL3 spam list. This meant most of our emails landed in user's spam folder instead of inbox; for no fault of ours.
  2. We now use a better email software to handle all our transactional mails and newsletters. We also have the capability to run Drip campaigns; which we think will be useful when we launch CrazyEngineers Memberships.
