Maintenance TONIGHT!
« on: July 24, 2009, 10:06:07 PM »
I will be taking the boards offline at 11PM EST tonight to do some maintenance and hopefully correct some of the glitches that have been hanging around for a while (and to do some security upgrades)

I expect the maintenance to take at least 1 hour.   I will try to get the boards back online as soon as possible... if I bring them back early, some of the functions may not be available until I re-activate them.

The different board icons are not appearing for me  :-\.

Plus, all pages opened in 40k Online have the little 'error' icon down the bottom of the page.

I'm assuming this has something to do with the maintenance.

Cool. There seems to be a slightly better layout in the gallery, with the new boxes and a larger amount of items displayed on each page. Or maybe it has always been like that :)

Plus I can spot some minor new things, like the Insert Quote button directly underneath each poster's name.

I have to re-add the individual icons.   after 4am though, I called it a night.     I willcorrect them later.

as for the javascript error...   it's minor.  I'll get to it.

and yes, the gallery was updated to the newest version with the improved stuff

i think we lost the "Rules" button on the menu at the top of the screen...

I miss the little icons next to the army / race windows on the main page and I can't change my signature.

Forget about the icons.

those icons had been added back this morning, long before you complained about missing them.... ???

And yes, the RSS feeds and sitemaps are there to help people who use those sort of things and search engines. (side note, the system has ALWAYS had RSS, it's just been a somwehat un-obvious function The icons make it accessible to everyone who might want to track the forums)

Just noticed a problem. If I click My Gallery under User CP it only shows me your contributions and your stats, Kindred, not mine. Don't know if it's the same for the rest of you guys.

Another thing I noticed, no one's armies appear under their name etc, on the boards, I can only see what armies someone has if I actually click on their profile.

Another thing I've noticed is that when viewing someone's profile, the Last Active part is appearing below the person's trader stats, as opposed to above like it used to be. Not sure if that was intended or not, just thought I'd point it out.

Other than that, no problems. Thanks for all the hard work, Kindred  ;D.

Well, that's interesting. I guess the colour of those question marks needs to be changed :P.
