Greetings, citizens of Apollo!
We humbly apologize for our extended silence and hope you enjoy the following update, as it covers a wide array of relevant topics.
We thank you for your continued support and are humbled by your dedication to making Apollo a terrific home for music lovers world wide.
Updates and upgrades
No doubt most of you are well hydrated at this point. However, with the collective health in mind, we upgraded our servers in order to better accommodate our growing user base and prevent any and all catastrophes related to overconsumption of liquids.
We would also like to take this time to commend our excellent development team, they are working tirelessly behind the scenes to make all of our lives a little easier. Please show them your support and gratitude as they continue to improve and build upon our strong foundation. There are many projects in the works that we are excited to share with you, so keep your eyes glued to the front page for upcoming news!
Editing forum + Charlie Team
Did you misspell Phish again? Not to worry, our magnificent team of Charlies are ready and waiting to assist you! Behold our glorious Editing Forum where badly spelled album titles and pesky merges come to die. While it is still possible to report torrents suffering from these horrible defects, we highly recommend you bring these issues here instead, as your problem will not only be solved expediently but you will also be alleviating a lot of unnecessary work for our staff team.
As a rule of thumb, only torrents with these issues belong in the editing forum:
Album/artist title editing
Genre tag editing
Release info editing (Label, catalogue number, year, edition, etc)
Scene tag adding/removing
Please keep in mind that elite+ also have minor editing privileges. Once promoted, you are more than welcome to peruse the Editing Forum and lend a hand to our Charlie Team. A big thanks to the many Elite+ who have already volunteered a hefty chunk of their time to helping clean our beloved site!
The Apollo team is growing!
As our site continues to grow, so too does the wonderful staff team here at Apollo! Without further ado, we would like to introduce our three new Torrent Moderators [vector edit: usernames omitted] to the staff team!
Please join us in giving them a warm welcome and remember to take it easy on them as they grow into their new roles.
Interested in being an interviewer?
Apollo is indeed growing, but many more homeless music lovers are awaiting shelter outside our front door. The interviewers have been swamped and are in need of more support. As of now, we are accepting new applications for a position within the team. This is a great way to become involved and we would love to have you! If interested, please message Sea with a short statement explaining why you would like to join our Interview Team, along with any other pertinent info (i.e, past experience).
We are currently working on multiple projects at once and one of the things we are working on is an updated version of the LogChecker, which we are going to beta test within the month. There are also few minor issues with our SSL (https) tracker that stems from old torrent clients/OSes and we are working on solving it without sacrifice. There are other small bugs that we need to squash, but we feel we're on the right path and can't wait to see what the future brings!
That's all for now, hopefully this update quenched your thirst, and be on the lookout for some staff picks from our new team additions within the week!
