Site Information, News, and Announcements
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.
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!
We were migrating our servers...
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.

Hey everybody! It's been a while since we've posted anything, but don't worry, we are still here. We've got a big release in the works and it's going to be pretty exciting. We are hoping to finish up soon and we will want all of your feedback. I'd say watch for the announcement, but I'm pretty sure you'll notice as soon as we do it. Thanks for using PokerSoup.com!
We've been on break for a while, but we just added a couple new features. The most noticeable one is the "Recent League Action" on the League List page. It shows upcoming games as well as past completed games that have results for all the public leagues and leagues that a logged in user is a member.
Admins will be happy to know that when entering tournament results the players are now sorted by first then last names and we added some styling to make them easier to read. Yay!
