ARGH! Make it STOP!
« on: February 20, 2012, 01:01:23 AM »
As you may have noticed... the first day after the switch, things worked fine... then they started going to hell in a handbasket.

I took the forum down and reset everything.

The forum itself is back online for the moment. All other features are currently disabled while I track down what was killing the server.

Before you ask:
All of the additional themes are disabled.
All of the additional features like the gallery and the articles are disabled.

I will work to get them back online a few bits at a time until I can figure out which mod package was the killing blow to our crying servers....

It was all looking so good on Saturday too, so it's a shame that you've had to take everything down after all those changes.  As Killersquid says though, you've got to do what you've got to do to identify the server issue.  I don't envy you.

Certain boards which never used to add to your post count now seem to, so that's something else you might want to add to your check list as you gradually start adding things back in.

A couple things I've noticed which I've noticed which might be helpful, in order to prevent Kindred having even more questions asked of him:

1. If you can't see the signatures of other users, then this is not a fault, you just need to adjust your settings (the reboot seems to have set not being able to see users' signatures as the default setting).

2. To return to the thread you've just posted in, you also need to amend your settings, as this has been deactivated by the reboot.

To find your settings, you go to Profile > Account Settings > Modify Profile > Look and Layout > (un)tick the relevant boxes.

Very good Iris, I've had a few questions along those lines too.

And yes, the "new look" was great. I'm sure all will be fine in time.

Go get 'um Kindred! 

EDIT: Also noted that when you leave a board having read all the new posts the "new" sign on the forum index remains.

Could we please kill the auto-rotate of the news section? Since they're currently of different sizes the page bounces up and down a line or two between each update.

If it's of any interest, my account had Signatures not visible by default and has now changed it so they are on. I've turned it off now because they are ridiculously annoying, but going off Irisado's post it's as if all the settings have been switched or some such.

hmmm.... well, I just tried one thing, which took the site down for about 30 mins.

Still working on it.

This may only coincide with the site tests, but I hope that the Facebook and Twitter links that show up under every post the mouse hovers over will not be a permanent function of 40KOnline.  I find it bothersome.

It doesn't happen on this board. It does on others though.

Thought I was going crazy there for a second... these links or whatever they are seem to be appearing at times, but not at others, even on the same post or thread.

For what it's worth, I'd appreciate a check box that would let me turn it off, if possible. :)

Go to this post as an example and let your cursor rest on the last line of the post.

The share buttons should only appear on the bottom of the FIRST post... and no popup, they should be there all the time

It is as you say.  Its always there, but only on the original post of a thread.

I've noticed the annoying facebook/twitter/google+ pop up is still around on the OP of each thread, is this meant to be and if so can there possibly be an individual setting to turn it off?

Nevermind saw this:
The share buttons should only appear on the bottom of the FIRST post... and no popup, they should be there all the time

Still it does tend to jump around a bit in the OP for me before it settles down...
