    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    I've been trying to access DLP Scryer (scryer.darklordpotter.net) and just getting repeated HTTP 502: Bad Gateway errors. Nothing else will show up no matter what I do; it seems the entire domain is down.

    I have tried connecting via HTTP and HTTPS, and using both my phone and PC to no effect, so along with the 5xx error I'm assuming it's some issue with the server itself.

    I'm not the only one having the issue and according to others, it's been down for at least a couple of days now.

    I expect it'll be coming back. Just give it some time.

    [09:16:48] ~Raven: Looks like the server that Scryer uses was locked down by DigitalOcean
    [09:32:23] ~Raven: During the upgrade of the Scryer ES node to Ubuntu 12.04 -> 14.04, the firewall stopped working apparently.
    [09:32:30] ~Raven: So Elasticsearch was compromised.
    [09:32:46] ~Raven: Used for DDoS

    Sorting by DLP Review Score, Popular & Recent and Long & Recent do not seem to be working.

    Thanks Palindrome. Fixed* too.

    * - DLP score wasn't sorting correctly to begin with.

    It seems that Scryer is no longer showing any newly published or updated stories. It has been static for two days now.
