It seems that our upgrade to MTOS 4.21 caused some trouble with comments. Many users were seeing the following error:
Invalid request: corrupt character data for character set UTF-8
when trying to post comments. I believe that we have resolved the issue. Comments should be functional again. Let us know if you see any more problems.
Our apologies for the comments you may have missed.

Comments and posting will be disabled for a short period today to enable a software upgrade. We will work quickly and hope to restore functionality soon.
Thanks for your patience.
We're back and better than ever, hopefully. Let us know in the comments if you find anything that's out of wack after the upgrade. We'll do our best to rectify.

Blog posting and commenting has now be re-enabled for all Terrablog domains.
There are still some bugs with domain indexing pages that will be worked out over the next few days. However, you should now be able to blog.
So, give it a try. Log in the same way you always have and try out our new and improved blogging experience.
Do let us know if you have any issues.
The scheduled upgrade from MT 2.6 to MTOS 4.1 will be underway shortly. During that time you will not be able to create/modify posts or make comments on any Terrablog.
We apologize for the inconvenience but hope that the upgrade is worth it. We'll try to keep you updated on our progress.

Fellow Terrabloggers, our long sojourn in the blogging desert of MT 2.6x is coming to a close. On the weekend of the 6-8th of June we will be upgrading the Terrablogs domains to Moveable Type Open Source version 4.
MTOS 4 is a fantastic blogging platform with an impressive array of features & plugins. You can learn more about them at http://www.movabletype.org/
The upgrade isn't going to occur without some hiccups. There are after all some 1731 total blogs across the various Terrablogs domains! The weekend of the 6th through 8th and in the weeks following we will be standing by to help you fix any bugs or bumps that arise in your templates. Most of your pages will work just fine, and you will continue to log in just as you have in the past, only when you do you'll see all the great gadgets and gizmos of the most up-to-date & powerful blogging platform available.

This morning we rolled out a significant change to the manner in which Terrablogs handles blog indexing on the blog portals. People were very excited when we added the ability to index any RSS enabled blog, and today we effectively "cut out the middle man" by making the indexed entries link directly to the blog entries themselves, without the intermediate excerpt page.
We received dozens of requests for this change and we hope you like it!
