Welcome to the Arcanum Cafe
Arcanum Cafe is one of the internet's oldest, since 1997, online poetry & arts websites. The site is a community for poets, writers, musicians, photographers & artists to showcase their works, share their lives and provide visitors with fresh writing & arts in a wide array of styles to enjoy.
Our host will again be doing some major server upgrades, this time on our MySQL server, overnight October 22th and 23rd, from 11:00 PM - 4:00 AM ET. So please be prepared for temporary downtime in our forums & to our ad server. There is chance these upgrades could cause site problems and generate error notices, more so in the ad serving software.
Our web host will be doing a major and needed core upgrade to our server overnight October 7th into 8th, from 11:00 PM - 4:00 AM ET. So please be prepared for minor downtime and a small chance these upgrades could cause site problems.
In separate news, the mass majority of our forum users have just received an 100% increase in their forum file attachment space.
A member, Sasha, pointed out some unusual color issues with blog author's reply posts to their own blogs. Issue was a hardcoded CSS issue that had been overlooked on the ACvB skin due to style inheritance and was clearly not addressed on the new "AC Elixir" skin/style.
The issue has now been fixed across all forum skins/styles so blog author's reply text fits the is visible and easy to read. I apologize to all of our blog owners about this oversight and any confusion or havoc it caused.
Arcanum Cafe's old site design was at least 10 years old and long in need of updating. So I'm now in the process of updating the site's design to be more modern (visually as well as technologically) and hopefully easier to use in the process with new drop down navigation menus as well easier to read text sizing. We're keeping the overall blue color scheme we've become known for because in the past any attempt to massively change color schemes was met with a negative uproar.
So expect to see the changes slowly working themselves across the whole site over time.
