It's been a crazy start to 2018 for me.
Letting bots index our language mirrors, plus allowing other hostnames, in an era when there are more bots than ever, crawling HTTP, HTTPS, mobile and non-mobile - lead to a massive sustained DDoS on the site.

I've decided to reorder characters in search results
based on number of suitors
. Previously we used a combination of love and favorites.
For a very long time I had been wanting to make a mobile friendly version of Smash or Pass. Well, I finally did it!

We're still having trouble finding reliable ad revenue. Companies I used to work with pay next to nothing, new companies pay even less.
Donations and patreon pledges are becoming crucial to our survival.

It is possible you may see:
Error 503 Service Unavailable
Try again in a moment!
Over 12 hours, only 2 requests met the criteria I set to trigger this - so hopefully it will be a pretty rare occurrence.
I'm also looking into doing another round of optimizing / rolling back inefficient queries.
