Yay for the updated forum!
03/06/07 at 19:45:36
 
I updated the forum to a super new version that includes... polls! There is enhanced security as well. Unfortunately, one of the side-effects of the old forum was that a bunch of fake accounts were created by spammers, which was screwing with the user namespace available and also just... bad. (You should have seen some of the user names created!) So, a side-effect of the upgrade was that I deleted all accounts with zero posts.

Other things of note:
All passwords are encrypted. Not even *I* know what your password is.
Old PMs were limited to 20. If you lost PMs, let me know. I will enforce the 20-limit starting on Friday.

If anything looks wonky to you, please let me know.

The forum looks fab Ali.  Although I've been unable to send PM's.

*Edit - it's just Hilary I can't PM.   I get this error message:

104 An Error Has Occurred!: Unable to open 19.txt

Okay, I'll take a look.

*Edit - Can you try again? I PM'd her and didn't have a problem (assuming that she received it Smiley )

Looks very good Alison - thanks!  Smiley

Only one problem...it's deleted all my most recent messages and left 20 old ones.  Any chance of getting back my most recent messages please?

I had the same problem, it deleted my most recent messages.  Wasn't bothered about most of them apart from the one I sent last night, and I can always resend it.

Ugh, I realized just now that the new board doesn't have a quick reply box. I'll need to figure that out.

Anyway, I love you guys too. Smiley

Hayley is banned, but she's not around anyway, so I can't talk to her (which is ideally what I would be doing right now). Don't worry about it just yet.

Yes, thanks very much Alison.  Good to see you posting again, don't go away in a hurry!

I'm also getting a message about the webpage wanting to access the Clipboard every time I post, which is very annoying.  Is that a pc thing or a board thing?

The clipboard? What is it saying?

I've tested the board on Linux and Windows, but both times I was using Firefox.

int exp and vista

'do you want to allow this webpage to access your clipboard?

if you allow this, the webpage can access the clipboard and read information that you've cut or copied recently'

It turns out that this is part of IE 7:

I installed a patch which will allow you to not use the clipboard when posting. Let me know how it works for you. Smiley

Someone hacked the program used to host the forum. They've even brought down the site that the forum originates from (like, the place that hosts the original code).

Stuff should be working, and I think I deleted all the spam...

Hello. I used to post on here a while back, my username still appears but I have a different email and forgot my password Roll Eyes

I wouldn't think anyone would remember me anyway.

Either that or I am wrong and it was the UK one I used  Grin

Just wanted to say hello  Smiley
