New forum update.

Postby {Ru}EINHANDER on Sun Jun 15, 2008 1:32 am

Well, where to start. We lost our records.. not sure if it was my fault or not. Most likely I'll take the blame for part of it. Unfortunately, the other I think is the host not allowing mySQL conversion time. It takes a while to get the older records (roughly we had around 15k) and the host must not have let the script run beyond 4000.

Anyway, with this new board at least I was able to get the skeleton outline imported before the script was cut off. I think the reason why the posts that did make it in "guest" were screwed up by me when I deleted some of the modifications I made to combat the bots. I think this next go around I will not hard code changes to the tables and only stick to modifiying the forum code. That way when update 4.0 comes out.. we'll not have to go through this again.

Anyway.. some of the customizations are kinda sparse for 3.0 at the moment. I have some stuff in the works and I hope all of you are able to find your way here.

BTW, it looks like Beer's Ventrillo server is out. I'll look into buying a year's lease on a Vent server soon.

New forums 8) Hopefully Beer's doing alright. Sounded like he was having some flooding problems.

That's cool Zog. We'll wait to hear from him before I pick up a Vent server then. I will collect everyone's email (clan members) from the older host and see what we've got going from there.

Good to see you got these forums back up EIn. WHen I visited earlier today I was very confused. But now there looking like the old forums.

Thanks for the vote of confidence. :)

I was telling Zog that the last time I had some time to setup the forums mostly with descriptions, permissions, groups etc. This go around I didn't have much time because I didn't realize the deletions I had made on Thursday night crapped out the older forums login. Hopefully, we'll have some newer options with these 3.0 forums without the forking spammers. DeathRanger always said use captcha (the graphic confirmation) but with the older forums we'd either have had to upgrade tons of code like I'd already done or just upgrade to 3.0 as we have. Unfortunately, the catch is the result. It's not likely that we'll be able to pull in the old posts.. so for the time being I'll not worry about that.

If you cannot see the "Clan" section.. let me know. Also.. let me know if your girls cannot register.. I disabled the bans on hotmail/gmail and also removed the COPPA option (for kids). I'm not about to put a physical address so someone can spam me there too.

Looks good.
Good job.
If you didn't get the forums back up by today, I was gonna demand a refund. :mrgreen:

P.S. This is Hong...I tried to log in with Hong, but didn't realize I had to re register, and thought I couldn't register Hong again. Oh well...

Hey Hong, good to see you made it. We're hoping people start to trickle back in and take the 2 minutes to register again :D

Hong, what do you want your forum name to be? We can change it to whatever you like. Glad to see you made it back. Hopefully these forums will be visually better than the last ones. Also, maybe even I'll get off my lazy butt to make the blue skull be replaced with a real website. However, first things first.. we're working out the transition bugs here. Could you post that fish again you caught? I really liked it.
