Updates, fixes, etc

I have overhauled the site. Everything you’re looking at should look pretty much the same as the front page. The archive has been tidied up and thousands of spam comments and spam profiles have been removed.

The forum is working again — I didn’t even know that it wasn’t working.  Again, thousands of spammers have been removed, and it looks (roughly) like this page, although I’m still not happy with it.  Also, I got completely side-tracked re-reading the wank that kicked off in 2007.  I’ve left it up, although a sensible grown-up should lock and hide it.  I can’t believe it escalated so massively.

The RPG link is still broken, and eventually I’ll delete that and sort it out, but at the moment, I’ve run out of time.  That area is kind of like District 13 at the moment.  Bits of it are still on fire after the spam invasion.

Updates, blogs, fanfic, etc

Hi, just to let you know, I’m thoroughly updating the site, because we got hacked (actually hacked, not the Facebook version where you forget to log out and your kid brother writes a little post telling all your dirty secrets).  Because of this, I’m updating everything, so there may be some broken links or errors thrown up on pretty much everything (fanfic, gallery, forums, etc).  I’m working on it.  I plan to have the site fully functional by Sunday.  Apologies for the inconvenience.

Forum Update

Yes, the forum is down. Apologies. The software was a couple of versions behind

An Update

I have just updated the site and the archive with the new look. The skin in the archive is called “Blues”, so if you want the archive to look the same as the rest of the site go to “Edit Personal Information” and choose the “Blues” option under “skin”.

The forum is down for maintenance, and will be up shortly. If you are already a member, then you will receive an email when the forum is back up, if you are not a member, you’ll just have to try your luck!

Hope you like the new look. Tell me what you think.

Updates

I do believe that everything is now fixed and should be working perfectly.

However, if you do run into any problems, please post them here so that I’m aware of them and can start fixing them.

You’ll notice that we’ve gone back to the old layout. This is because while the other was pretty, it wasn’t very functional, and this one is far more straight-forward. In short, I like it better.

Update

Sorry for any problems you might run into, but we’re having server issues. The most notable is that the Forum is currently down. Please do not try to post to the forum, no matter how stable it might appear, until the updates blog says it’s ok.

Things are just difficult at the moment, but I’m working on it. We moved servers today

Discussion Forums

Well, I’ve had no volunteers to help in the forums, but I’ve gone and installed them anyway. Perhaps they’ll crash and burn and be worthless and I’ll have to delete them. If not, maybe some prolific posters would want the job. Anyway, go have a look at the forums. You guys wanted them, so please post.

If you’re interested in modding a forum, leave a message in here, or at the forums.

A forum??

Kate, in my previous post, asked if we could have a forum over here at The Lost Cave. It’s something I was considering, but have never gone forwards with. I’ve had them before and found them to be nothing but trouble.

The problem with them is that they attract spam like nobody’s business. I would be willing to host a forum, but only if I had at least three volunteers to look after it. This would be a daily task. In my experience, there’s at least five new spambots joining the forums daily, and someone would have to make sure that they didn’t post. Things like that. Leave a comment (making sure you include your email) or email me, if you’re interested in the job.

If you don’t want to be a forum mod, but would be interested in there being forums at The Lost Cave, what would you want on there? What sort of topics would you like, what other forums are cool to you, etc.

Input, please!
