Server-Move September 29th
2020-09-28 17:15:13
PAGE UPDATE - BY ARANESH
Edit on September 29th

Because of a very unfortunate mistake on my end (timezones are difficult sometimes -.-) the server move happened a day early. My apologies for that.
On top of that, it caused a lot of issues, some small some large. Large meaning something like: not possible to login through Battle.net, error when writing comments, not possible to browse strategies. Issues with which it would be impossible to browse the page. I kept it offline for that reason.

In the meanwhile, I went through the biggest issues and repaired them, going through every function of the page as detailed as possible. There are still numerous smaller issues around, for example sending password reset emails is still broken. I will fix all of those as well asap but I won't keep the page hidden any longer.
If you encounter any errors, please let me know!





In the last few days, the page has been running a bit unstable. It's a combination of more complexity - user accounts, collections, pet comparisons etc. - and more people browsing the page. And the odd little coding mistake but let's not talk about that :)
To help with that, I've requested the entire hosting account Xu-Fu is running on to be moved to a new server with better hardware and settings that give us more computing power.

  • This is going to happen in the night from September 29th to September 30th at around 02:00 UTC


The process should be automatic and seamless but there are lot of smaller things changing that might need manual updating.
I can't guarantee a smooth transition and the page might be down for a few hours. Fingers crossed! :D

Since the move my experience has been flawless, it was before too, but slower. Thanks again for this resource for folks to share with each other what works.

I'm looking forward to the exploration of this new expansion.

I did know what was going on, because I was in the Discord (/smug) and I have to admit, the sheer panic I saw from people looking for their Xu-Fu fix kept me amused all evening. I never quite realised Xu-Fu had become an Essential service. :)

Me too, I am new to this site and pet battling in general, when I tried to login and the site was offline I realized just how dependent I have been because the tool to create teams and export them directly into wow feels almost like cheating. /wink

I cannot do with out it!!! Aranesh, keep up the great work and know that the pet battlers of WOW l;ove you for all that you do to make us the best we can be!!!!! Crystal

Thank you so much everyone for the love and support you're all extending to me and us :-)
It was a difficult day yesterday and I was stressing out quite a bit when I saw the state of the page after the move. It is extremely reassuring to read so many messages of pure positivity and support. Thank you! :bows:

I understand it can feel stressful but you provide a "free to use" website from what I guess you do not monetize on? You can take it in any pace you want all we user plebs can do is to be grateful for every step you take and for whatever stuff you choose to share with us! So, no need for you to stress out <3

Thank you so much for this passion project of yours! Do you use a CMS of some sort or a static compiler? I love your site

Thanks :D
I use a code editor (Komodo IDE) that can edit/save files via FTP access. It's all handcoded with few exceptions. And no I'm not joking *cries in manual backups*

I need to say thank you for all the work, love and thought you have put into this page! It was not until I tried to figure out what has happened when the site was down during this process, I found your Ko-Fi page where I could contribute and buy you a cuppa <3
Just thanks, this is my one and only page to go to when looking for advise, tips and tricks for pet battling <3

Thank you so much for everything you do for the pet battle community. It was your site that inspired my love for battle pets and allowed me to make sense of a confusing part of WOW. <3
