Introduction

Hey everyone, this is Loren from Donut Team and welcome to yet another Tuesday Topics blog post!

This week, I'd like to talk about our new status page and @Borb would like to talk about even more character models.

New Status Page
by Loren

Over the couple weeks, I've been working to replace the legacy Donut Team status page with a newer and fancier one powered by Better Uptime.

A screenshot of the new status page.

While we don't typically lean on third party services for things, we believe this makes sense in the case of a status page. This assures that downtime affecting our services, planned or otherwise, does not affect the page that reports on their status.

This new status page also reports the status of all of our web services instead of just a few select ones so it is much more comprehensive. It also notifies us immediately when an incident is detected which is extremely useful for staying on top of things.

You can check it out at the link below!

More Character Models
by Borb

Hi everybody, I have three things to show off today!

The first is a likely final version of Sideshow Bob to be added to Additional Characters relatively soon.

Sideshow Bob is looking pretty great.

The second is a retooled Skinner intended to look significantly less cursed than Radical's model.

Rest in pieces, cursed Skinner.

I will not be providing context for the third thing.

Bart must consume a diet of Mountain Dew and Doritos.

Conclusion

Thanks for reading another one of our Tuesday Topics posts! See you again next week.
