You might have noticed that the forum was down for a while... this was because the site was in transition to a new webhost... whistling.gif

As I had to move the website anyway I took the opportunity to upgrade all software: newest version of IpbWiki, MediaWiki, Invision Power Board, Member Map, Download System and Arcade have been installed.

You might notice that not all arcade games/downloads are back but we're working on that, should be ok soon...
Shoutbox and portal should be on route too, not sure which one I will install of that yet...

If you use Mozilla Firefox, IE6, Safari or Opera9 then you can also make use of the rich text editor for writing posts (check your control panel)

If you notice any problems, please report these in this topic...

Cool! The banner is even centered in Opera! w00t.gif
The read/unread double square thingies for each forum don't highlight when there's a new message?

Edit: hmm, the site's a little slower, though. sleep.gif

Edit2: ooohh, the new member map is way cool!!! Although the coordinate finder doesn't seem to work very well.

it should be centered in each browser normally smile.gif

I've got also the impression that the host is somewhat slower, and I even had them install a php cache program, they must be overselling their servers big time... smile.gif

They highlight but it's only with a square in this skin...

the mordor.uni.cc domain is still pointing to the old site for me, I have to acces the site through the ip address for now... sad.gif

will look into the member map issue when I see the site through the actual domain name smile.gif

When will all the posts/threads be transitioned over to this host by? I noticed the latest MXP Public Update (part 3) hasn't made it over yet. I lost some PMs too.

I HATE Mondays.
In a way that has been heretofore unforeseen by civilized man in this age or the next.
What shall we, as responsible citizens searching for our boggle, let forth our raging commentary about this?
Yea, verily.
Mondays are here now.
Perhaps in the past Mondays were called by another name...like "Leg" or Ripseysnot" or "Borkfruitfullness" or "Cosmopolitan" or other such nomenclature.
But here in the uncharted present they are known simply as "Monday".
And they carry as fetid an odor today as they did in forgotten and unforeseen millenniums past.
Indeed.

sure? Did you post something after the board went off line?
I'll syc the pms tomorrow, probably won't have time today, I'll have to go play snooker tonight, so it'll likely be late when I get home...

There's a few posts that are all messed up. This one IIRC was in reply to the third December update, which is missing.

Snooker? Did someone mention snooker? w00t.gif

Definitely. There's three or four I don't have back-ups of, but maybe Braindead does. I'll also re-add arcade games as soon as I get the ftp details. On the plus side Tower Defense should submit scores in this newer version of IBP. w00t.gif

@annhwi: I always reply, if I don't it's because I forget to. wink.gif

I have uploaded all that I have and that doesn't weigh more than 2 MB. Wabbit's site is back up but there are no navigation links, so those files of his that were lost should be somehow recoverable. That's how I found his editor has a new incarnation, although it is incomplete.

In "My Assistant" if I click on a PM in the "Recent PM's" tab, I get the following error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined method skin_msg_5::Menu_bar() in /home/mordruni/public_html/forum/sources/lib/func_msg.php on line 147

fixed that error.

downloads have to be connected to the original topics and author. that'll be some SQL fun sad.gif

stuff done today:
- fixed the wiki (should be all working now, if you spot an error let me know)
- installed a mod to have nice html names on the forum topics
- installed a portal, so you have the overview back you used to have on the old site.

Love the new site... too many nice enhancements to mention them all! But I particularly like having the new Member Map, and the easy way to place a pin. Now if members will only populate it!

Ohnoes! The arcade scores got reset! sad.gif sad.gif sad.gif
