    We're back! Now featuring 0 certificate errors!

    Sorry for the recent SSL issues everyone. Jason and I have things patched up with a slicker, more secure, and more maintainable setup. Thanks for sticking with us!

    Want a blog? Let us know!

    Sadly, in an effort to keep the spam down, we've removed the ability for people to create a blog on their own. Too many BS posts about gold sneakers and long term elder care.

    If you'd like a blog, just message us using the Feedback link at the bottom right. Tell us who you are and what you'd like to blog about. You don't have to write about poker all the time, but keep it related to the theme of this site. And no mentions of Florida vacation destinations, please.

    SSL Everywhere

    An awesome benefit of our recent migration is that Pokersoup now uses SSL everywhere, throughout the whole site. This means all of your interactions and browsing on pokersoup are encrypted can't be viewed by a 3rd party (at least, not without a whole lot of effort. Hi NSA!).

    We're using free, simple, and highly recommended certificates provided by Let's Encrypt, whose mission is to get every website to use SSL all the time. A mission Jason and I completely support.

    Migration Complete!

    Pokersoup.com is now running on a fresh new server! This brings to an end our old server hosted at Rackspace Cloud that had been running since 2008. It served us and you well: at one point the server had an uptime of over 3 years, and the server process itself had been running for over 1 year without restarting. Pretty good!

    Unfortunately, Rackspace mandated that we migrate this old beast to their new architecture, and it wasn't going well. Faced with a fresh server build, we decided it was time to say bye to Rackspace for good.

    Now we're moving on to a fresh new setup with Linode. We're running a modern Linux distro with SSD disks, Xeon E5 processors, and quadruple the RAM of the previous system.

    Oh, and it's half the price of Rackspace. Suck it, Rackspace.

    Jason and I have done a lot of testing, but we're hoping to hear from our users if anything goes wrong. Just hit that feedback link in the lower-right and let us know if you're having problems!

    Hello Facebook Comments, Goodbye Forums

    In an effort to improve the experience of our users, we have set up Facebook commenting on all of the PokerSoup.com blog posts. This will allow everybody to comment on the site and also easily share comments on Facebook. Additionally, it will virtually remove all spam from the blog post comments.

    Another recent change to the site is the closing of the site-wide "Talk" section of the site (a.k.a. our forums). The volume of forum posts has reduced to the point that spam posts outnumber non-spam posts and it doesn't seem worthwhile to moderate this section of PokerSoup.com any more. We are currently not going to make any changes to the league-specific forums.

    We would like to hear your feedback on these changes!

    Please comment on this post or send us feedback using the red feedback box at the bottom-right of your browser. If you are logged in when you leave the feedback, we will be able to send you an email.
