Forum Issues Due to Server Migration
« on: July 27, 2020, 06:42:57 PM »
I know there have been some problems with the forums since the server switch this afternoon, and I've been working with our webmaster to address them. The big one still outstanding is the missing avatars, which should be fixed by tomorrow. If you run into any other oddities let me know so I can try to get them ironed out.

I also talked to the webmaster about updating the forum software, and I don't want to promise anything 100% just yet, but it sounds like that will be happening.
Insanolord is a terrible moderator.

Not a major issue I guess, but when viewing threads I'm seeing a lot of white areas above and below the first post in a thread. Happens in every thread, on desktop versions of vanilla Google Chrome and a Chromium fork browser, with no extensions/adblockers/ghostery/etc. enabled. Screenshot below.

I forget what used to be in those spaces, I think there was a banner ad up top? Either way, they're not loading now. Banner ads do work on the main site for me in the same 2 browsers.



Anyone else seeing this?

Thanks for the work btw, Insano!

Why would you expect Discord.Rss to do anything right?

Well, if anyone could answer that question, it would be pokepal148. I mean, he couldn't even correctly put a question mark at the end of his question. But if he's got to ask it then I guess we'll never know.

On the topic of issues there is a problem with the youtube embedding not working.  I don't know if there is a workaround but that is not working at the moment.

I'm happy with thinking pokepal148 is just eating a stick of butter. It seems about right for him. I don't need no stinking facts.
