SERVER UPDATE
« on: September 24, 2012, 07:45:50 PM »
Everyone - Just a quick heads up to let you all know that in the next day or so our host will be updating the server on which the Forum and website operate.  This is not a Forum update.  They are updating the server on which we run.  There may be a gew hours during which the Forum becomes glitchy ( grooaannnn... )  

Be cool, be calm and don\'t go into a tail-spin if your screen momentarily flickers.  Give it a day or so ( I don\'t know when they are going to begin )

Thanks for understanding!

Thanks for the heads up.

Will do, Tom!  I got a response this morning, but all it said was that they were still updating.  I hope this makes some positive and noticeable changes in our operation.  I\'ll keep everyone informed.

Thanks for understanding, folks!   :)

Just so everyone knows...  I know... the Forum is messed up.  If you haven\'t noticed it yet, if you click on the Index tab, you\'ll probably see only 14 topics listed.  

I\'ve already fired off a WTF? letter to all those individuals associated with our server, our management team as well my Co-Admin for the LinP website and Don\'s Administrative Assistant.  

I\'ve already gone to the Administration control panel and can find nothing out of place.  This is obviously something outside my area and beyond my control.  But I do have a large voice in this and as already noted have fired off my query to those that control other aspects of our operation.  

One thing I did do was to remove some inactive tabs, so you\'ll no longer see a Rules tab (it wouldn\'t even redirect to the rules page), No Replies ( a category for posts with no replies?? ) and the Help tab.  What you should see is Index, Recent Topics, New Topic, My Topics (sop you can manage your personal topics), Profile (still not functioning, I know) and Search, which I\'m pleased to say actually appears to function correctly.   :)

I\'ll post more info as I get answers or make further changes.  Hang in there, gang!   :)

Now, even the \"recent topics\" button doesn\'t work!

Yes, I just discovered that myself.  I\'ve reported it and will keep working on that as well as the other glitches.

If you get stuck in that loop where it takes you back to the website, just click on the \"Forum\" tab on the website.  It will take you back to \"Recent Topics\".

I need an aspirin and a Red Horse.   :S

Getting the same thing Thomas, so it’s just the site acting up. I sure it will get worked out soon; I know Jack is on it and I wouldn’t want him on my back 24/7! :P

Steve,

Don\'t I wish!!  I just went to the administration page for the whole shebang (website and forum) and discovered several settings have been changed without my knowledge or consent.  Seems someone has been playing around in an attempt to persuade Google indexing to once again pick up on our Froum.

Jack,

My condolences on your frustrations and fury at somehow managing this site. I for one do not envy you in your job.
My suggestion for you is to leave it dfor 24 hours, go chill, relax, decompress...with or without a few Red Horses ;) lol
You deserve a break from all of this, and I for one will not begrudge you it.

Best of luck in getting this all straightened out.

Thomas
