Sorry about the weeks-worth of website down-time (check the front page of the site for details on that). I'm now working hard on getting the forums back up and running. I thought I'd post this checklist of things I need/want to do to the site, to let you guys observe all the trouble I'm having. tongue.gif The V is my substitute for a check-mark. X means it hasn't been done yet. Stuff that's been done will be colored green.

PLEASE REPORT ANY BUGS YOU FIND HERE! Missing images, broken links, etc. Just make sure they aren't already listed in the first post here. And try not to spam this thread, okay? rolleyes.gif I've now set it so this board doesn't add to your post count... yet.

THE WEBSITES:
V - Move files - FIXED - Had to practically learn UNIX to do it though
V - Site not resolving - FIXED - had to ask them to reroute the DNS names... TWICE
V - Nova Refuge resolving - finally...
V - Comics subdirectory functional - FIXED - turned out I had messed up the CHOWN permissions... had to remake the directory
V - E-mail functional (as if I want it to be) - FIXED - had to call support and get them to open up some stupid port or other
V - E-mail SMTP functional - FIXED - I guess the address is now mail.saber-scorpion.com for both POP3 and SMTP

X - Put more Google ads (AND Google SEARCH) on site to boost waning Google adsense income
X - New sub-menus for more streamlined navigation
X - Reorganize LEGO section
X - Better, more blog-like comics section?
X - Install gallery program for user uploaded Nova Refuge LEGO creations (and art?)
X - New site for Wylfgard

FORUM GENERAL:
V - Install new IPB version, do NOT move old database - DONE
V - Skin - FIXED - mostly working now, bugs will be placed under separate section
V - Groups - DONE - I think I got everything... so far anyway
V - Ranks - DONE - Took me a while to come up with all the rank names
V - Boards - DONE - They won't be visible yet, however, until I set up the permissions
V - New COC and rules topics throughout the forum
V - Avatar galleries - DONE - took all night, but they're uploaded again now
V - Smilies - DONE - couldn't seem to get the new directory to show up... used default directory
V - Permissions - Reopen for posting!
V - See about restoring the old forums as a read-only archive long enough for people to save their data - DONE! - Archive is now accessible at http://forumarchive....r-scorpion.com/ - Go there and save your old data NOW! I will only leave it running for a few months.


FORUM BUGS:
V - Banner not loading - FIXED - re-uploaded
V - Folder images in profile missing - FIXED - had to re-make them
V - Make sig limit smaller
V - Banner background not loading either... - FIXED - had to use full URL
V - Can't upload personal photos - Problem does not seem to be permissions - location /uploads/profile - possible CHMOD 0777 not working? - FIXED - Finally... turns out I had to CHOWN the directory to the FTP username before I could properly CHMOD it!
V - Forum clock seems to be off - FIXED? - it took some tinkering, but I THINK I got it...

V - Fix ph34r/ninja smiley - FIXED
X - Get the Google Ads to show something even vaguely relevant
X - polls not working...

I'd assume so, unless they were really inactive.

Everyone's probably noticed but:

I thought I disabled you guys' posting ability! tongue.gif Honestly...

And yes, the old mods will still be mods, although I'm not re-making them until I'm done with the other stuff.

Wait - you mean you can find some differences in the forum, other than the fact that the abilities you didn't have as a Free Member are back (for now tongue.gif )?

Okay, I'll let you guys reply to this thread, but I'm diabling it from adding to your post count any. Not yet anyway.

It's called the "Close Topic" button. So much easier tongue.gif

Ah, and good.....

So, is this the part where Werewolf busts in again and tells us all to GTFO and quit posting? tongue.gif
