    It seems to come and go at random, but I don't have anything to do with servers.

    I'd suggest contacting fiftyeighthens if it becomes too much of a hassle, since he's the one who takes care of that stuff.

    I've actually also been having the double post problem, it's a bit annoying.
    Everything seems to freeze when I press 'Post Quick Reply' and then I'm taken to the 'Wait 15 seconds before your next post' page.
    The posts post fine, but it just tries to post 2 instead, much like Thousand Island Sausage.

    About the bots, captchas won't stop them.

    What will work is modding the registration page with a question a human can answer. That is if vBullentin has a mod for that available to install here. This suggestion is what solved a bot problem at another forum (phpBB type) I go to on the net.

    EDIT - Apparently vBullentin will automatically log you out for idling. Is there an option in the UserCP so that I can turn this off for myself?

    Hmm... I'll go ahead and check into the "human answer" thing for the bot-stopping. Sounds like something worth looking into, since I really don't wanna deal with ads every ten minutes.


    And I'm really not sure about the comic thing. I'd suggest asking fiftyeighthens about that one, since he does anything dealing with the main site.

    Alrighty, I think I'm done for the most part now.

    Enjoy some of the new features I've gotten installed.

    Just wondering, but why did my 350 post counter suddenly drop down to 50? I mean, it's not important, I just would like to know.

    Can someone tell me how to UNQUOTE ALL? I already posted and it still keeps selecting posts for multiquote, even if I reply to a different thread. And I don't want to search all over for checkboxes to uncheck.

    Admins probably disabled postcount in a forum somewhere, making all posts in that forum non-accountable to your postcount. I think it was the Canvas. About time, too.

    No, still counts on the Canvas.

    I'm not sure why it dropped, but it doesn't look like we lost any info whatsoever. Not that I did any changes to anything around the post info, anyway.
    Maybe Lololo/Fountain posts were counting for some reason?

    There was a point about the forum thinking you were double posting when instead you were lagging after pressing the reply button once raised; I've been getting this problem a lot and it's getting on my nerves.

    I'm still not sure where the lag's coming from, but I'm pretty sure that it's not something I can fix.

    fiftyeighthens is the one that deals with all of the server stuff, so I suggest contacting him about it.

    We're still trying to figure out how much of a strain on our server allowing albums would cause. If anything, I think the last thing anyone wants is more lag on the site due to a bunch of info on our servers.

    Why cant we edit the thread's name? this is annoying because many art threads have "name here(latest update here)" and so it looks like you never updated the thread...

    Hey, I have a small problem: I got a message from Thousand Island Sausage, and it keeps saying that I haven't read it, even though I have. I just would like that fixed, because it's getting annoying. Well, at least, it's annoying to me.

    Albums? What are those?

    Also, the lag's getting annoying, but it's not to the point of insanity yet.

    And will the old forum filter ever get reinstated? I miss it.

    There's a method to do so but it appears that it's only available to the staff, as far as I'm aware.

    Try erasing your cookies.

    I don't think it's an issue with the site/forum itself, but moreso your browser. Unless this pops up consistently I'm gonna have to call this on something wrong on your end.

    An album. Like a photo album.

    Lag has already been addressed out of the control of the mods, and to those in charge of the actual server stuff.

    Forum filter is not a top priority right now, and from the looks of it will take some major retweaking in order to reinstate

    Oh, I thought 'album' meant user groups for normal users or something... *facepalm*
    I guess there's a lot of coding involved in making a filter, isn't there? Oh well, waiting is the best part! :P

    Actually, if you edit the first post, then click 'go advanced' you have the option to change the title of a thread. I've done it before now on the pokémon eggs topic.

    Strangely this has been missed by many others, as I've been asked about changing topic titles several times and this was the method I found that works.

    But if it works, so hey there you go

    It's the same case with deleting comments on profiles, you have to go into advanced to delete them.
    Many people overlook that.

    Not for mods LOL

    Also, Albums are working as well. I've uploaded a picture to my [private] album, and Eltro has uploaded one as well.

    This isn't just a mod thing, though. Gedeon uploaded the first attachment onto the forum and it's on his albums IIRC.

    All right, let's get started:

    The Albums are disabled, because we're not sure what they'll do to the servers just yet. Ged/Eltro/Hypes just inb4'd the disable before the forums were made public. We do plan on trying them out soon, but not just yet. No need to add more data/traffic to the servers when we're having lag issues as it is.

    I'm not sure what the notification you're getting is, Yoshi. Can you get me a screencap, so I can see which one it is? Screencaps of the problems are always, always appreciated, since they let me see exactly what you see.

    Hypes and Eltro pretty much answered the Title Editing thing, but I honestly have no clue since I've never gone outside my admin tools to try it. >_>;

    And I've been informed of a couple of more bugs, so I'm gonna try to fix those now. Don't be alarmed if the site goes down for a few minutes, since I have some more code to clunk my way through.

    Except the fact that I made me Album today.
