This Probably Won't Be Good....

So we have hit one of those points again that seem to happen once every other year that we have to do upgrades to our server just to be able to update the board.

(Basically it is gonna be this thread all over again)

So at any point - the site possibly (most likely will) go down. When? Who the fuck knows? We are at the mercy of the specialist Seal Team 6esqe team that apparently our host company has to bring in to do it.

And since after that is done, the board then needs to get the major update... well things will definitely break

If we never speak again... well we served our purpose

I don't know if you want a heads up on things that are currently busted, but at least on my current theme (Strong climb skin?) when I try to quote selection or mark a forum as read none of the actual text appears.

Most likely Dean will have to fix all of his hideous creations

The default skin should work if anything becomes too unreadable

Reading a quote in a post, the username doesn't show like it should.

This might have been a design choice

I am trying to figure out if it is a setting that can be turned back on but it is possible there is nothing we can do about it on our end

AEW monthly thread seems broken.  Loads occasionally, but mostly I just see the posts in the middle of the page with an expanse of gray above and below.  Can’t post or read most recent replies.

That appears more specific to your account (it just loaded just fine for me)

Try other threads to see if the same thing keeps happening.

Logging out and Logging in could help. So could clearing your cache.

Or just try again later

Okay spoilers are back and the quoting system is working 

I reset the board's system caches - that may or may not have fixed it but I am not looking a gift horse in the mouth

And member titles are back!

Funnily in Googling the other problems, I stumbled across the instructions on how to turn them back on

Haven’t been able to fix it but the problem appears to be limited to page 3 of the monthly AEW thread.  Page 3 is a black hole.  If I navigate to it, the page only partially loads and then doesn’t want to let me back out of it either.  The solution seems to be… just read page 4.  The rest of the thread works fine


edit: Just noticed that I can’t post from one of the pc’s in my office.  This particular desktop is still running Windows XP, so I would guess that is the culprit  I can read topics and do things like edit my profile, but the “quote” button is missing entirely from posts and I  can’t click on or type in the reply box at the bottom of the page.  Any way to fix that?

Some pasted external content only shows as a flashing vertical scroll bar and never loads.  See the pics and gifs thread.

Might just be me.  I'm using Firefox 102.0 currently.

I believe it is just you (or mostly just use - I am sure a few other folks might run into the same issue)

The things with the Vertical Scroll Bar are the new way Tweets embed (don't ask me why)

I saw one tweet doing that on the board yesterday, but in the very next post someone quoted it and it displayed correctly.  I assume witchcraft was involved.

When it comes to techonolgy, ,this is often the case.

I’ll add that trying to visit the AEW monthly thread breaks the board for me. It half loads, hitting bank doesn’t do anything, but if I reload the whole site from my bookmark then I can get right back to the site and view anything else.

It’s happening with the general monthly wrestling thread too. Weird.

Since it isn't happening universally - it most likely is a combination of how you are accessing the board, what sorts of protection you have and the horseshit that is posted in the thread (in this case, horseshit means weird rogue type HTML things not the general content of the posts)

To further back up my point

The last post in RIP thread - had one of those blinking white boxes where a Tweet should be

I went in, grabbed the link to the tweet and then pasted it as plain text and now it is appearing normally.

So for the millionth time for everyone PASTE AS PLAIN TEXT

For me, I think it may have something to do with Safari. The issues I described are only when I’m on mobile and only my phone (iPhone 13 Pro Max).

It’s just weird that it’s only the monthly threads.
