Hey all: so this is a slightly smarmy, self-serving request but hey, I am the marketing guy.
We are working with the Capterra directory to get some NodeBB reviews posted on their site. They have a program where they will give you a $20 gift card (I think you get a choice of Amazon, Starbucks or pre-paid Visa) if you are one of the first 25 people to click an emailed link and post a review. It doesn't matter if you say nice things or if you bash us, although of course we hope you'll be nice!
If you're interested and are running NodeBB yourself or using our hosting service, please DM me or email email@example.com with your name and email address.
There is a time limit, I need your response before Monday August 20 at 3 pm Eastern (Toronto/New York) time. A few days after that you'll get a separate email with the details for posting the review.
Glad to report that as of today, April 25th, all instances of our Premium Hosted platform benefit from backups stored via the Tarsnap backup service.
Our previous backup solution consisted of local file system backups of each instance's database contents, persisted to the local file system. This had two shortcomings:
Backups were not hosted off-site (a big no-no! )
Uploaded files in /public/uploads were not backed up
I'm glad to say that both of these shortcomings have now been addressed. Luckily, we have never had to restore a NodeBB instance from back up, thanks to our reliable hosting from DigitalOcean. Hopefully, we'll never have to
