    Re: We know the forums won't load threads (including this one), we're working on it

    Ok, I think I figured out a loophole (Is that the word?) to post for now. If anyone could see this, basically, what you do is that you have to first log out of our account. Then, I think you should be able to view threads like it is. After, to reply to a thread, just click "Reply the Quote" on one of the posts, then it would ask you to login. After you log in, you should be able to reply to threads, that is, if this reply works.

    I'm also doing this on IE, if that makes a difference.

    Is that so? Well, if this post gets through, then I can confirm that it also works on Google Chrome. Also, it works for more than one person, so there's some reassurance there. If it works for me right now, and if it works for taiwanman, it probably will work for other people also.

    I was wondering how Kiwi was managing to run around posting everywhere. Thanks.


    For the longest time I was also wondering what was actually written in SNF's topic post, since the title basically said everything. Haha.
    Good luck with the bug fixing!

    Re: We know the forums won't load threads (including this one), we're working on it

    jryanm's on the IRC and he figured out the problem, through a Google search and also learning that we can make posts like this

    there's a broken index.php in the server files, meaning someone who has access to the server-side of the forums needs to reupload said index.php

    so once either TB or Kisai (the admin from Keenspot) do that, since they're the two who can actually do that, the forums SHOULD be fixed.

    that said, jry said this fix came from a 2011 vBulletin fix thread so there might be more to it, but ideally this will be all that needs to happen

    alternatively, find the topic you want to post in, and click on the button that takes you to the most recent post. the page will be blank, but the url remains normal! copy the post number from the url.

    then, simply paste the number at the end of this:
    brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/forum/newreply.php?do=newreply&p=

    and put it in the address bar. voila! quicker than logging out each time, right?

    Well, that's of relatively good news. At least there's somewhere to go from.

    I am fairly certain that from this day onwards, Kiwi shall be known as a wizard. Perhaps even a Wizard…of Chaos!

    Seriously now, someone should probably PM those instructions to TB or something. Non-functional forums are non-fun.

    Of course, it's a great time for Bun to be on a break (a mercifully short one, at least). And good luck contacting the other guy; he's got no contact info and he hasn't been here in years.

    We just may be out for a while, but at least I'm posting here while it's still cool.

    We all know Kiwi is a witch, with his black magic, discovering all these hidden tricks before anyone else.

    At least this is a temporary fix, though it is inconvenient to go to the archives to view any thread, because I'm too lazy to log out.

    I'm on board with forever being known as Grand Chaos Wizard.

    And yeah, this is a band-aid solution. If this fiasco lasts longer than a week though it'll be a serious detriment to the forum as a whole. Why don't we have more active admins?

    Kiwi you might not want to go with a title that says "Grand Wizard" in it, I mean it's got a pretty unfortunate real world association... let's just say that if you were the Grand Wizard we'd be better off calling you KingKaosKiwi.

    That was something I did not foresee. Good catch, Boalt. Instead, call me... Chaos Lord? King of Chaos? I'm open to suggestions.

    I still stand by my stance that Kiwi's a witch. I mean, he said so himself. I nominate Overlord Kiwi the Benevolent as his title.

    That's been gone for a while, ever since the update with the Recent Activity tab or whatever it's called. Some themes, like Caterpillar in the Family, still have it though. I just use the New Posts button instead.

    You see the forum is punishing us for taking quick posting for granted. Now we have to wait about a week before the curse will be lifted by the Great TriforceBun.

    I just have one tab for archives, one for viewing the forum, and another for posting using Kiwi's link. It's not too hard that way.
