Cap, the wiki database is all messed up, it puts backslashes where apostrophes and quotes go.

Can you point me to an example? The homepage looks fine and there have been no recent changes.

http://www.attnam.com/wiki/Saal'Thul

On top of this, the forum does not recognize that an apostrophe does not necessarily signal the end of a link.

Note also that when attempting to create the page "Saal'thul" it turns "Saal/'thul" into "Saal//////'thul".
System would indicate in graphic if person is mounted on horse or not.
Same system also show if person mounted on boar, elephant, polar bear etc.
Or if person mounted on ass.
Ivan find mounting on ass funny.

Well.. the forum is known to suck. I don't know why the Wiki's not working.

You know, a "I'm not ignoring this thread, I just can't fix the wiki because I'm busy" would suffice, Cap.

Actually, I can't even edit any pages at all. The wiki is either REALLY broken.

Sorry, I thought that was sort of implied. I don't know what's wrong with it and I thought the only problem was the apostrophes, so I didn't feel like looking into it... the whole thing on the other hand is a bigger problem. I'll try to fix it this week

Despite telling the forum "NO" I'm still getting e-mails whenever I receive a PM.

It seems that when someone made a new reply to the "what blob is doing now" thread and deleted it that it caused the Other Games forum to be marked as having new replies on my 'main menu' despite there not being a post for the thread listing to point to within the forum itself. Also, the thread was considered newer than the Freelancers thread despite there not being a new reply to point at in it whereas there was with the Freelancers thread.

how long have you been working on the new forum again?

Wow BDR, that was incredibly unnecessarily long. I made a post and deleted it, making that thread show up above them all. You don't need to make an essay about it.

"Mark All Read" will make that ghost-post problem go away.

I did look at the thread and make it go away. That doesn't mean there isn't still a bug that really should be fixed!

Yeah, Chrome's been giving me warnings that "something's not right here!".
Saying the site contains content from "sites known for malware" such as greenpix.in and nt20.in

Also AVG blocked a "blackhole exploit" when I visited this page.


Have we been infested?

Hmm... thanks for the heads up. I found some bad stuff uploaded on one of my other domains which is hosted in the same account. I'm looking into it.

I think I've purged all the bad stuff off the server :/ Please don't hesitate to let me know if you see these warnings again. These are quite a bit more serious than minor bugs.

I have discovered that the shoutbox drains my data transfer at 18 kB per second. Since I am currently on a mobile network, I actually pay for that (more than 1 US cent per minute). I suppose this could be the reason why I have been suddenly drained of my powers in the past (I expect sites like Facebook to drain and I turn them off just in case, but I did not expect that Attnam Forum does this too). I think compression, an option to turn off shoutbox refresh, and more effective implementation (just load the changes) would all be helpful.

Yes it's very inefficient, I think it loads the page every second or something. Sorry. I'll try to address this later today
