We've moved.

To a new server. Old one was a very very old Intel Core2Duo E6600 with 4gb RAM. The new server is an i7 with 48gb RAM and a lot more HDD space. Some disruptions might be possible with the forum until the DNS updates (we changed host too). Other than that everything went fine with the move and we should be back in business asap.

I cannot change avatar in my profile.
If I click 'change', I see '403 forbidden' popup window.
Also, why it isn't possible to load my own image as avatar (last time I checked only stock avatars were allowed)?

Avatar bug confirmed, working on a fix.
And no, if you have an avatar pack related to JA/JA2, PM it to me.

The idea is to use unique avatar, not the pack that everyone will be able to use.
So it would be nice to have a possibility of using unique pics for avatars (approved by moderators to fit Ja style). Stock faces are boring =)

The Who's Online bug and the other bugs are back again. Or maybe it's just my Internet? :yikes:

Not really major bugs, just wrong paths in config... I had to do an emergency restore last night (I messed up some files trying to solve the damn avatar pop-up window 403 error). Forgot to edit paths as they are on new hosting. Fixed now.

*Fixed the stock avatar pop-up (finally!). The security settings from the Wordpress blog apparently killed the pop-up... go figure.

I am aware of the 403 Error popping up everywhere and working to solve it.

It's a bit more complicated but will sort it. The server has some security/anti-flood settings that are simply way too strict for a forum. My admin will adjust them to a proper level.

NEW

We've moved the blog to bears-pit.com and the forum now resides on it's old http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com domain so there shouldn't be any further errors.

We've also made the forum the main index page (it shows the portal right at entrance, no cover page). This means fiddling with paths so I expect stuff like missing ranks.

To Be Done:

* if you have a sig with a local link (to a topic), please remove the /board/ from it; or replace "http://www.bears-pit.com" with "http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com". [color:#FF0000]!important[/color] - fixed
*fix missing rank images - fixed
*avatars gone, must rebuilt posts with new path- fixed
*all mod links on blog broken, need to edit&fix- fixed

*analyse other impacts

*old links to /board/ topics have been redirected to proper address using a server .htaccess . please test your old bookmarks and report if this fails.
* there are some folks with avatars missing, those are people who used bears-pit.com URL and the old URL is saved in db. will try and automatic fix, but your best change is to re-set your avatar manually. sorry for inconvenience.-fixed

Please report if you find any other bad links/missing features.

The weirdest thing about this migration is that JA2 has been out for almost sixteen years now.

God I'm feeling old...

Broken as as in part of actual message body missing or they're separated in multiple messages? If they're separated in multiple messages that's how FUD PM system works, I am afraid. Try "Message Dump" link, that appears to concatenate the messages in a single page of some sorts.

No new messages are added, just some of the pre-migration messages are lost, only 1-2 lines with a few words are left from long message.
It's not a really big problem, just hope this can be fixed somehow :-)

I've got that same issue above with some old emails just missing text after a line or two, seems pretty random, some messages I have are in full, others can have only the two opening words.

I've removed posting privileges from the old forum and opened it for a week @ Schein's suggestion.

Please use the time to go over there and salvage whatever information you're missing.
