Could someone (@SamLau95, @choldgraf) add me to the new data8.org so I don't get a 500 internal server error?

Hmmm, I'm already seeing your name in there

It now looks like I can log in, but I still get a message 500 : Internal Server Error
Failed to start your server. Please contact admin. What I'm trying to do is just look at the link Maddie sent for the Smart Cities connector

Hmmm, that sounds like a permissions issue
Could you just visit that repo on github instead?

e.g., here's the smart cities connector link on github https://github.com/data-8/smart-cities-connector
though looks like it's not updated, so I don't think that's what she's working on

actually, FWIW I just tried to start my server as well and got the same error. @SamLau95 any idea what's going on?
I went into the admin page and clicked on "stop server" and it returned an error saying that the server wasn't actually running. So it seems like it thinks that some servers are running when they're not

I had that same experience as @choldgraf with trying to start and stop servers. I got to the admin page and decided I shouldn't be mucking around in there because it looked like I could break stuff.
In theory I could visit the repo on github, but I don't understand github well enough to know what that means to do. (I figure we'll have a lot of instructors who are in the same boat. If they find our support system hard to use, they'll opt out.)

yeah I agree - it sounds like the issue with data8 is a bug. And I'm not positive how exactly the github repos / data8 sync with one another.
