  1. Good idea, but did not work. Killed my cookies, relogged in and its still broken for me. Waiting for word from support.
  2. I did do a forum update a little over 24 hours ago. That may have done it. Ill look at the reports on the forums support site and see what peeps are saying.
  3. Glad thats fixed... now I just have to fix the underlying problem. That upgrade group is people that are supposed to be moving from Member to Participant. But for some reason their permissions are not the same as Member. Ill see if I can fix that today at least.
  4. Well... it turns out your jest was on point. You have... erm.. had... no heart. And by heart I mean group. Fixing it now. Should be fixed by the time you read this... assuming the 3 or 4 tons of new years celebration juice still running thru my system doesn't throw an extra ass in where the heart should be.
  5. mouse over the heart right over there ----------------------------------->>>
  6. ok, funny story here. So... I got a notice about 12 hours ago that my SSL for ptalk was going to expire "in 1 day". I immediately posted that last post... thinking to myself "damn, if I had done x when I set this server up, this damn SSL would be handled automatically when needed". So I thought... fuck it, lets do this one manual-like and then fix the problem going forward. That way I don't stupidly let it expire before remembering to renew it hurriedly after a really wonderful mod sends you a SMS while your sleeping. Ill just leave it at that and file it under "DOH!"... and go back to sleep. 🙂
  7. Hi guys, So... taking control of this site and the associated server was quite the learning experience, as many of you remember. I know much more about how it all works and more importantly what it needs to do that work than I did when I first set this server up. The result of that is that the server itself - the hardware and core operating system - are not very well optimized for running this forum software. On top of that, there is a pretty large update available for the forums that I need to upload. So... I have decided to try to upgrade the hardware at the same time. The bad part of that is there may well be as much as a hour of downtime when I do the move. There will not be any DNS issues since it will still have the same IP address, but with new hardware and new OS come new potential problems to solve, so... we will see. I will update this post when I start the process, and when its done.
  8. ok, there were a shitload of updates... all done and server rebooted. Hopefully that helps.
  9. Been a long while since I did updates and a server reboot. I will do that now. Wont take long.
  10. Your upgraded. No more moderation 🙂 Welcome to the forum. Look forward to seeing you on some of our barcrawls in Jan.
  11. No you have not... I have just been very busy and not activated your account yet. I am doing so now... will be done by the time you read this 🙂
  12. Your account is now active. Welcome to the (unmoderated) forums 🙂
  13. its a secondary validation... described in a post you were sent to right after you registered. Here is a link to it:
  14. Brexit is likely to make that worse, not better. At least initially. And when you get a chance, please follow the instructions for activating your account... that will remove your posting restrictions and remove you from moderation. 🙂
  15. Board has been updated to 4.4.6, and the SSL certificate has been renewed.
  16. Sadly all on the bus perished and are waiting in line at the pearly gates. St Peter approaches the first girl in line. "Mary Margaret, I have one question for you, and it is of the utmost importance that you answer truthfully. Have you ever touched a penis?" Mary blushed a little bit. "Well, yes, I have. I once reached into a boys pants and touched his penis with the tip of my finger. But that was all." "Very well Mary. Dip your finger into this holy water and then you may enter Heaven." St Peter then approaches the next girl in line. "Anne Beth, have you ever touched a penis?" "Yes, I once reached in a boys pants and grabbed his penis." "Very well," said St Peter "Dip your hand in holy water and enter the Kingdom of Heaven. At this point in time there is a commotion in the back of the line, as one of the girls is pushing her way up the line. "Katherine Anne, you need to wait till it's your turn." St Peter strictly informed the girl. "No, I'm not staying in the back of the line. There's no way I'm rinsing my mouth out with that holy water if Karen has to wash her ass out with it first!"
  17. Annnnnnd.... in true Murphy fashion less than a day after upgrading our forums a new 4.4.6 update comes out... and its marked as a urgent security update. So ill be upgrading us yet again in the next day or so. I do not expect any downtime at all, same as the last one.
  18. The board has been updated to 4.4.5 successfully. Unpinning this topic now.
  19. I assume your talking about your Signature. Up at the top on the right, look for your username with a down arrow. Click that, click Profile... and its in there under Signature.
  20. Postponing this until tomorrow folks. The server this is hosted on needs maintenance as well, and I am going to do that first. This will not create any downtime, but it will take a few hours so ill do the board update tomorrow. Frosty
  21. Hi Guys, Another security update is available for the board, and I intend on attempting to install it sometime tomorrow. With any luck the downtime will be very minimal, but you know how these things go. Ill post here just before I start the update, and when I finish. Ill keep this post pinned until the update is complete. Frosty
  22. I got a notification yesterday that our SSL certificate was expiring... and totally forgot about it last night when I was online and doing that kind of thing. So it expired and we had a hour or 3 of warnings being thrown to people who visited the site. Sorry about that! Will try to make sure that does not happen in future! Only takes me about 10 minutes to update the cert - I just totally spaced it. Getting old sucks. lol.
