Had some ongoing outages due to lack of disk space on the server. Should be running a bit more smoothly now!

I had the opportunity to play a few matches of Tekken 7 while I was in Hong Kong at the Super King Arcade. It wasn't a busy scene Saturday night but the guys I did play were highly skilled. Considering I last played seriously with Tekken 5: DR (and can't remember many juggles) you can imagine how well I went (kudos for throwing me a few mercy rounds now and again guys!).

Ok, we're just in the process of recovering from a horrendous outage. The database has been restored from a backup (with some ~12 hours of dataloss) and I'm bringing the images back online now. What happened is as follows:
- Last night at approx: 8pm AEST I noticed that the site was responding slowly to requests. I rebooted an made a note that I will resize the server that we're running on up to the next tier as we'd been getting a lot of traffic.
- At 9am AEST I made a resize request through the Dreamhost compute panel to move to the next tier. The resize didn't complete successfully and the server entered an error state that I could do anything to via the online interface.
- At 9:30am AEST I submitted a support request for the server to be restarted or fixed.
- As of 5:00pm AEST I had no response from Dreamhost about the server so I began to restore the nightly backups of images + database to a new server hosted on Vultr.
- As of now (8:05pm AEST) I seem to have successfully restored the site for the English and Russian versions.
I will post some more about this tomorrow. I deeply regret what's happened over the last 12 hours and the data loss that has occurred. (The first ever in the history of the Tekkenpedia).

Fixed a bug with file uploads where files larger than 1M weren't able to be uploaded. This has been upgraded to 100M.

Some more updates including enable HTTP2 + SSL for the website. If you're using a modern browser then everything should feel a lot faster.

I've made some updates to the layout of the site to make things work better on mobile devices. Some infoboxes need review as they have very long URLs in them which are breaking the layout. These need to be replace with short text descriptions (like I've done with the Tekken 1 and Tekken 2 articles.)

Trailing a new skin for the site, tell us what you think! (Thanks to Hamachi)
