      I think I completely nuked access to that forum on purpose. It's not coming back.

      Oh, and the Politics and Religion forum wasn't for subscribers.  The only people in it (for the most part) were those who were originally in it when that forum was still publicly visible to everyone (well, everyone logged in).

      Today is the greatest
      Day I've ever known
      Can't live for tomorrow
      Tomorrow's much too long

      I'll burn my eyes out

      I play games on consoles to get away from the repetitive stress of a PC mouse. If it's not released on the PS4, I'm not interested.

  4. Sorry for the "Checking your browser" screen, we've been under heavy bot attack since around midnight.  Forum should be much more responsive now.

      Just tried again and am NOT getting the Browser Checking screen. Even cleared cache, etc. and tried using both Firefox and Safari. Thought you might want to know...

      Yes, I'm aware of it, as I turned it back off.

  5. I know status update replies are broken, I have opened a support ticket...

      Are you sure they are broken?

  6. Forum has been upgraded.  If you spot anything strange or flat-out broken, please let me know.

      It appears that a reply isn't left and then begins repeating...

      Just noticed that on a status update I replied to, hit Submit, but didn't appear to do anything. Hit submit again, same thing. Reloaded the page and saw I replied twice. So, your submission is getting posted - just that you can't tell.

  7. Going to update forum software later today. Mostly bug fixes, but will allow you to search your entire history of private messages, versus just one year!

      Did you perform the upgrade already? Everything seems much snappier and more responsive now.

  11. The "Who's Online" list at the bottom of the forum index is now sorted alphabetically again.  Your name will always appear first, though.

      Albert, I really...need to give you a hug for AtariAge, and doing everything that you to, to make this place as awesome as it is. I am really starting to appreciate, just how hard it is to build a community.

    3. Albert

      Albert

      @tschak909 Thanks for the kind words, I'm glad you're enjoying the site! It can be as much work as you make it, really.  This forum upgrade was a long time coming, and there was quite a bit of preparation work involved (without that, it would have been a bit of a disaster I'm sure).  Plus I had to rewrite all the software on the main site, and the store also had to be upgraded at the same time (although that wasn't as tedious as the forum and the main site).  I still have a lot of work to do on the main site, as there's plenty of broken and missing pages there.  The main database mostly works fine, though.  And I still have a fair amount of forum-related work remaining but it's coming along nicely at this point.

      @Random Terrain As long as the members are all listed alphabetically, that's good. : )

      @malrak You should now be able to post a Status Update.

      Thank you so much for the Tap-A-Talk. I feel much more connected again. I guess my "Subscriber" donation kinda helps this cause. It probably doesn't cover it all but I really appreciate you doing this @Albert .

  14. "Indefinite Editing" in selected forums (Marketplace, Programming, High Score Clubs) should be working again, as well as any specific posts people have been granted to edit.. 

  15. If you can't create Status Updates, go into your profile and make sure "Enable Status Updates" is checked.

      One thing though... you can't delete your status update? I see it now... under Options, then choose delete. Another example where it takes more clicks to do something.   :)

       

      I see you cannot delete what you've replied to on someone else's profile. Going to have to be more careful what we write if not... :dunce:

      so this one copy traveled that far? or is the list of cities, where the other copies of this game are located at???

      That's where it traveled before arriving in Austin, Texas.

      An active volcano would be a safer place for servers than Florida, Texas, or California.

  20. More information on why the forum was down earlier today: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/269287-now-with-more-power/
