Over the last three weeks, I've been working on upgrading our server infrastructure. It's finally ready and is now live!
Increased reliability - less server errors Increased availability - less downtime Increased security - keeping us and you secure Increased capacity - ability to serve you better Increased speed - less waiting for things to load Faster development - server and service updates will come faster What are the changes?
Move from a single AWS EC2 instance to AWS ECS (Elastic Container Service) Distributed computing Load balancing Git management of server files and filesystem Redis caching How?
AWS ECS (with 10 EC2 instances) AWS ElastiCache (Redis) AWS Load Balancing AWS EFS (Elastic file system) Please bare with us as I continue to tune the server for maximum performance. Slow loading speeds may occur temporarily. I thank everyone for their patience.
Please post on this thread if you experience any issues other than slow loading times.
I am posting this to let anyone who wants to join know that I am now hosting a Discord chat for TRiBot users. You can use this chat to talk to other users, ask questions, or simply hang out in the chat. We are the most active botting chat so far with over 40 users online at all times of day.
You can use Discord on the web, or download the application for Windows, Mac OS, or Linux if you prefer. You can find the Discord site here.
To join the chat, simply follow this link and you will automatically join the chat once you accept the invite. All members are welcome, and even if you don't have anything to say you are welcome to afk in the Discord chat. It is required that you make your Discord chat username the same as your TRiBot username so it is easier for other members to identify you. You also must register an e-mail with discord; this is to prevent spam accounts from joining (sorry).
I reserve the right to permanently ban anyone from this unofficial chat for any reason.

@administrator - All tribot admins get this role Your username separated from other members in a nice and shiny red color Ability to do any action in the discord chat except manage the server @moderator - All tribot mods get this role Your username separated from other members in a beautiful green color Kick and ban members Remove messages Move members between channels Create an instant invite to the discord chat Mute members Deafen members Ability to use the @everyone mention to notify all users in the chat of a message @user_moderator Kick members Remove messages Create an instant invite to the discord chat Move members between channels @scripter - All tribot scripters get this role This role is given to people who have the scripter role on TRiBot.

Moderators and User Moderators, you have the ability to create instant invites to the TRiBot Chat. To create one, click the symbol next to the cog on the #tribotchat text channel. You can replace my global invite link with your own in your signature. I can use this as a metric to see how many people are using your link to join. Who knows, maybe I will reward the users who are getting more people to join =^).

TRiBot Discord Chat Rules:
You must make your Discord chat username the same as your TRiBot forum username. Do not impersonate any TRiBot member. Do not spam the text channel with tons of the same message or similar messages. If you are purposefully annoying or otherwise unnecessarily argumentative, expect a ban. Do not flame other members of the chat. Arguing is allowed. General in-good-taste banter and harmless comments are also allowed. No Black Market transactions are allowed to take place on Discord. You must conduct them on the forums or elsewhere. Do not purposefully start arguments for the sake of trolling and/or provoke people in the chat. No doxing/hacking/phishing. Do not brag or talk about hacking/doxing other users. You cannot advertise anything of your own such as a website or service. If you break any of the above rules, you will be immediately un-verified and removed from the discord chat.

Last week we tried to roll out Auth0 Login, but we lost that battle. Now it's time to win the war!
When logging into the client, you'll now have to enter your Auth0 account credentials instead of your forums credentials
Note: 2FA is still handled through your forums account (for the time being)
Changes for existing users
You'll have to link your Auth0 account to your forums account here: https://tribot.org/forums/settings/login/?service=11
Auth0 accounts have been created for most existing users. Please use your forums email address and password to login.
Make sure to verify your email address upon creating a new Auth0 account
When we mention your Auth0 account, we mean your account used for auth.tribot.org as displayed below
To better support the upcoming changes (TRiBot X, new repository), we're switching our login handler to Auth0. Instead of logging in with the standard form, you'll now be required to login through our Auth0 application.
All existing accounts which have been used within approximately the past year have been imported into Auth0 using the same email and password combination which has been stored on the forums.
What does this mean for users?
Your account credentials are now even more securely stored
You'll be able to login via Facebook, Google, and others in the future
Is there anything users have to do differently now?
Existing users: You'll have to login with the standard login, open your Account Settings, then link your Auth0 account
New users: You'll be redirected to our Auth0 app (auth.tribot.org) where you'll be able to create an account
Why was this change made?
The new apps we are creating (such as the new repository) aren't able to use the forums to handle user logins
To centralize all user accounts in one area
To ensure that the client login doesn't go down when the forums are having problems
To speed up our development
There's no documentation or official support for using Invision Community combined with Auth0, so there are still a few kinks we're working out
We're in the works of creating an account management panel specifically for Auth0 accounts (ETA August)
It's not possible to change email addresses for the time being (this will be resolved this August)
Changing passwords is a weird process for the time being. To change your password, you'll have to use the "Don't remember your password" tool on the Auth0 login page
Over the past month, we've been working hard on TRiBot's new repository - a much needed update. This change has been deemed necessary for TRiBot X, and will allow us to really speed up development of all aspects of TRiBot.
Today we are going to share what we've been working on!
Now you must be wondering what kind of features the new repository will have.... well, you'll have to be patient for a little while longer. We're still figuring out various technical aspects so we can't provide answers to all possible questions. We're also focusing on development rather than writing about it so that everyone can get access to our latest developments at lightning speed. I will however answer a few users' questions.
We're planning on a release of this early to mid August, giving users some goodies before TRiBot X's release.
Thank you all for being patient. I hope everyone is excited as much as I am!
Over the past few months, I’ve been working diligently on a new project - TRiBot X. Everything has been written from the ground up, with all of the best practices of software engineering. Every aspect of TRiBot has been re-imagined to support three main goals: flexibility, useability, and reliability.
Come give us feedback on the next version of TRiBot!
