This isn't on topic, so this discussion won't go on any further in this thread, but; And who will moderate the moderators? A split between the site operator (me), and gestalt community action. If you feel moderator over or under acted, appeal to that moderator. If you feel a moderator consistently o...

Re: Upcoming Email maintenance

Email maintenance completed.

With GMail as our mail sender now, we should no longer see emails being blocked to accounts on Hotmail and other Microsoft owned services.

Upcoming Email maintenance

Please note that I'll be working on the forum's email settings this weekend, starting the evening of Friday August 14th, as I attempt to move us to a new email provider. I'm hoping the work will be brief, but be aware that email notifications, password resets, etc may not send correctly during this ...

Re: Forum Upgrade going on NOW

Looks like my rollback approach missed some things. Everything in the database is up to date, but attachments uploaded since the last snapshot are gone and unfortunately I don't think they'll be recoverable. Complete oversight on my part. I'm sorry. But I've updated my backup and restore scripts so ...

Re: Forum Upgrade going on NOW

We're rolled back to the pre-upgrade snapshot. There are some critical plugin comparability issues we'll need to fix before moving forward.

Please resume your regular wiggling.

Forum Upgrade going on NOW

The upgrade to PhpBB3.3 is starting now.

The forum may be periodically unavailable over the next hour, and any posts or PMs made during this time may be lost if we roll back.

Planned Downtime - March 29th - Upgrade testing

Heads up; I'll be testing the upgrade of the forums to version 3.3.0 at 10pm Eastern time on Sunday, March 29th. I'll post on Twitter and post a site-wide announcement while running this testing. It'll involve some downtime while the upgrade itself runs, and I may roll back the upgrade afterwards, s...

Re: Site Migration Completed

The last "new post" indicated for that thread but not showing up was made by Karl_Joseph. So it seems as if posts are regularly getting lost since the migration. I've had a few reports of this since the migration. Most couldn't be pointed out, but a few I did trace down two of them to problems with...

I apparently can't use BBCode to link to that (though it may link automatically) because BBCode doesn't work here (probably per-forum config?). There are a lot of technical things like that remaining to be resolved and it'd be wise to resolve them before even looking at contentious cultural proposa...

Re: Site Migration Completed

For "Avatars on the left" the CSS part could be as easy as this: .postprofile { border-width: 0 1px 0 0; float: left; } .postbody { float: right; } I've only tried this with Firefox's Element Inspector but at first glance it seems to do the job. The question maybe is how to make this individually s...

Often I get a 'Search not available. Try again in -x- seconds' message. How frequently are you trying to to search? The server is set to limit searches to once every 10 seconds for logged in users, or once every 30 seconds for guests. These are the defaults, and seemed reasonable to me. The Disable...

Apologies if this is the wrong thread to raise this, but the availability of the Search function is limited now.

Re: 0 post users read this

That is odd. I ran the Resync Post Count operation and that user is still showing zero posts.
But clicking on the zero does shoe his one post.

I'll take a look at the DB and see if I can find out what is stuck

Re: Pls Read: UploadPic vs Image Attachment

Long story short; yes. PHPBB 3.2 adds a lot of media embedding options, as you've seen, but did away with the image upload. I just tried to install an extension that re-enabled it, but that broke everything in a bad way. So that's gone now. The only other such extension I see is Image Upload which a...
