LoveyCube Radio back online; a few changes made to show hosting
We have identified the likely culprit to the continued crashing of our home computer, which runs LoveyCube. We put a fix in place and are currently running tests to see if the computer will randomly crash anymore. The issue seems to be resolved, though we are continuing to monitor. LoveyCube Radio is back online for now unless more crashes occur.
We have also changed how we handle show requests for LoveyCube Radio. The new policy is the…

Charlottesville solidarity statement
LoveyCube pays their solidarity and sympathy to the lives lost in the Charlottesville White Nationalist protests. The actions set forth in those protests do not represent the greater community. We condemn any form of racially-motivated violence or violence influenced by any form of discrimination. And we hope that the deeply-rooted white supremacy culture is dismantled soon.
For our LoveyCube members I ask of the following from you.

Activity Index calculation changes
The activity index is now calculated based on activity from the last 7 days, opposed to the original calculation of activity within the last 30 days. We feel this would be a better calculation given most of our activity happens in real time in our Discord server. And typically activity has little to no impact in the community after 7 days.
Leaders for activity as well as activity % and STAR index calculations also now base off of activity within the last 7…

Why [many] Men are Single
Men... do you wonder why so many of you are seemingly single and cannot find a woman who loves you? I have a theory that can explain a big part as to why this is true: It's because many women have given up on you.
It is 2017 and women STILL do not have their right to choose [abortion] nor their right to quality maturnal and sexual healthcare protected and fulfilled.
Women are still paid less than men for the same jobs and the same amount of…

1000 free Yang
Part of my commitment as the CEO of LoveyCube is that I want to establish fairness. A lot of communities are iffy when it comes to server rules because of the question "What happens when the administrator breaks their own rules?" In LoveyCube, whenever I violate my own rules, I offer a public apology and a huge no strings attached Yang reward to anyone who wishes to claim…

SOLIDARITY MODE declared for the Manchester concert bombings
I am officially declaring Solidarity Mode for The Lovinity Community+ in lure of the Manchester bombing at the Ariana Grande concert. Many young people were injured with several also being killed from the attacks. We are deeply disheartened by the events that took place in Manchester and give our solidarity, prayers, and respects to all those affected by the attacks. During solidarity mode,…
TLC+ phase plan for focus change
The following is our current plan of how we're going to phase in the new focus for The Lovinity Community+. The plan is subject to change at any time without notice. Dates of each phase are not guaranteed.
- Phase 1 (Beginning of June): We will add the ability of users to log in and create an account on our website using their discordapp.com account. Current users who have had their Discord ID put in their profile will get their accounts linked to discordapp.com (so they will use discordapp.com to log in from then on). Me
Website upgrade report
The most recent website upgrade was not 100% successful. The upgrade broke our async code that allowed certain resources to load in parallel to the webpage to speed up response time. As a result, we had to remove the async code. The two unfortunate consequences are the following:
- It will take longer for our website pages to start rendering
- A few minor things may be broken throughout the website (please report them to firstname.lastname@example.org).

Mid-week Update - March 28, 2017
This is a quick mid-week update on the happenings on lovinity.org . Because of a brute force login attack, I was not able to send a formal weekly newsletter last week.
In terms of the brute force attack, the addition of a website passphrase has seemingly stopped the brute force login attack. Therefore as long as attacks stay clear, the website should stop going down so frequently for security checkpoints.
[urgent] Security bulletin - Downtime expected
For the past day, The Lovinity Community+ has been under an active hack attack. Someone has been diligently trying to brute force their way into an administrator account on our website and using other methods to try and compromise this website. Please do not worry, staff are working around the clock to try and ensure the attack is not successful. However, this comes at the cost of frequent service outages.
Solidarity Mode - London
I, @Lovinity , am declaring solidarity mode on The Lovinity Community+ for March 23, 2017 in lure of the London terror attacks. One confirmed death was announced as well as dozens of injuries. We at the Lovinity Community+ are saddened to hear of the attacks and pay our respects to London and the victims. For more information about the attacks, please see this page:
Donation to Planned Parenthood
A few weeks ago, I had a double goal of the week where 80% of all TLC+ donations would go towards women's causes, and in addition, $1 would be donated for every point on the activity index at the end of that week. Unfortunately, no donations were received, but we ended that week with 6.01 on the activity index. Therefore, a donation of $6.01 was made to Planned Parenthood. Thank you everyone for your support. Here is a screenshot proof of the…

Mt. Vernon Christian School and my experience with it
I'm finally going to go in-depth about my experiences with my old school, the one I constantly talk about and how it was a miserable, annoying, and frustrating experience. The name of the place is in the title of the blog, so if you wanna see it yourself, just look it up. I went to that place for over a decade, from first grade to sophomore year is how long I've been there. This is all from my personal experiences, so some of the things I bring up may not apply to…
