Might want to renew the SSL certificate so I don't get an error every time I visit the site. Obviously I can choose to ignore the error and everything works just fine, but it's not a great experience. A classic issue for sure!

What URL / domain are you getting that on?  I'm not seeing any certificate error.  I just verified the date of 5 different domain/subdomains that contain vgchartz.com names that are good (and another 10 non production ones).  Perhaps you are using a deprecated domain alias?

Hmm, that's interesting. I'm still getting it on the main page:

My PC's time also seems to be correct, so it's not that either... It's a Let's Encrypt certificate which says it's valid from Sep 20 until Dec 19 (i.e. when I reported the problem). I can provide more details about the certificate if necessary, but I'm getting the same issue in both Chrome and Firefox, so there's definitely something wrong with the certificate.

tl;dr: Reboot (cold restart, not just sleep) your machine and that should flush all caches and fix it.

Longer answer: Can you tell what IP your machine is connecting to?  (You can try "netstat -an" at a shell/command prompt in most OS right after loading a page).  It should show 69.41.13.62.  If it doesn't, but shows 65.111.186.138 (the old server that is proxying connections to the new server) then that is the problem.  If you haven't restarted your browser in a few weeks, it might be holding onto the old ip.

Try ping www.vgchartz.com and see which IP it is using.  If the old IP, try flushing your dns cache (different depending on OS).  Most browsers cache DNS outside of the OS, so you can't assume the browser is using the same IP and ping if it's been running awhile.

That was... unexpected. I got the issue fixed, but your instructions were not quite enough. netstat -an was indeed showing the old IP address for vgchartz.com. However, even after restarting my PC and flushing the DNS cache manually, it was still showing the old IP address. ping vgchartz.com was showing the new IP address, but ping www.vgchartz.com was showing the new IP address. For a while, I wondered if some DNS server might still be giving out the old IP address, but it seemed unlikely. I finally rebooted my router, and it seems fine now. I guess my router must have had some caching as well... (I also flushed by browser's DNS cache after rebooting my browser since it seemed to have one, but since it works in two different browsers now, it must've been the router instead.)

Anyway, thanks! Your help certainly seems to have pointed my in the right direction in what seemed like a fairly bizarre case to me. :)



Hey @TalonMan. This isn't a particularly urgent issue, but I thought I'd bring it up anyway. The articles and news stories on the front page have a little box with a number inside it indicating how many comments have been made. I have found the number in the little box does not match the actual number of comments in some of the articles. Like this one which displays 13 in the box, but contains 16 comments.

https://www.vgchartz.com/article/446932/xbox-series-s-will-hold-up-for-graphically-intensive-games-says-super-meat-boy-forever-dev/

Once I noticed the first instance of this, I found other articles with the same discrepancy.

Is there a way to see more than 8 "Latest Shipment Updates"?

Could you create a page or new "box/filter" with the updates (series mostly, as they are harder to find)?

Some series are updated with dates like "as of 2018/2017" (and so on) and besides the last 8 results it's hard to keep track of them. If you use the "last update" filter in Game Total charts they don't appear, because of those older dates (like 2018/2017).

Is there a way to reduce the spacing between lines in the rich text editor?

If you hold the [shift] key while hitting a line break, you can reduce the spacing:

 - New line hitting enter, without holding the [shift] key
 - New line hitting enter, while holding the [shift] key



Thanks!
