    OK, the validation system wasn't set-up like I planned, I forgot to alter a specfic setting before putting the temp forum online. If you signed up and noticed you couldn't do fuck all after you validated your account via the e-mail, then I hold my hands up. My bad.


    And seeing as I'm in a good mood, I'll promote all those stuck in Validating/Limbo at the time I realised that I fucked up to full member status, and I'll even let display name infringements slide. But, only names I recognise will get this treatment, the rest will need to try their luck in the Limbo Lounge - so that's all but one of you.

    "Hello", huh? Well, that's not a name I will put my trust in as a good member, but hey, stranger things have happened. Lucky me I registered today. Good to see it back in some degree, Ordos.

    I was wondering what happened to this place. I went to log in, and my account didn't exist.


    Glad to see it's back, even if not fully at this point.

    Sweet, SGMC is back up. Hopefully we can get a better skin, this one seems too bland.

    That's currently on the to do list. Hopefully, we can re-build the main skin from before the downtime, and perhaps add some new skins to give more choice.

    One more thing. I don't know if others are having this problem, but when I visit the site, I'm logged out, even though I selected for it to leave me logged in. When I re-fresh I'm still logged out, but when I click mark all posts as read, when it loads back up, I'm logged in.

    I'm also experiencing this little problem. I'll look into it.

    I think that may be from the extra / in the urls, I can't recall if there's a way to change that in IPB or not though, but it's probably from having the board url set to http://www.sonicresearch.org/forums/, it should probably be set to just http://www.sonicresearch.org/forums since the dashes are included where they're needed already.


    If it counts for anything though, I'm not getting the problem over here.


    Scratch that, it does it when I close Firefox, re-open it and navigate back to here.

    At least the majority is okay at the moment.

    At last, this lovely place is back online!


    I'm not experiencing any problem with login so far.

    Oops... Sorry about that. Hopefully you are in a good mood ;)

    I'm not going to be a hardcore display name nazi this time around, although certain restrictions will be imposed.

    Maybe so, but a lot of the time they do, hence the rule. If you've proven yourself to be competent, you will most likely be exempt.

    Glad to see the place is back, even though it's just temp forums. I thought my computer was just being a bitch again yesterday. Also, if someone registered as no1sonicfanlol what would you expect? =P

    I only put a temp forum in place as I was still working on adding the main forums, and making alterations to the configuration settings. I wiped the temp forums, and shifted their posts once I'd got everything in place. So, these are now the official forums, minus custom skins - the old default SGMC skin will be restored through time, but I'm open to submissions of custom skins from fellow members.

    The automatic logging out is happening to me too - it's pretty annoying.


    Also, what's with the extra slash in all URLs? It looks weird.

    I've got no idea what's causing the double backslash, but I've got a feeling that it's the cause of the cookie problem. I'm currently trying to get a hold of our IPB Master Ninja.
