Hey guys, this forum is awesome, but I'm having some sort of technical error.
EVERYTIME I try to make a new account, I'll log out, and I'll be UNABLE to log back in again. Every time. I tested this several times.
Like I just created a new account, tried to log in, I even copy and pasted the...

sufi & mods
is it just me, or does anyone else suddenly find themselves having to log in pretty much every time they return to the board? happened a bunch of times today.
also, the "new posts" function hasn't worked very well today, been missing posts that i know are new since my last visit.
just a quick update
y'all may have noticed dissensus fell into a sort of timeslip yesterday, drifting back and forth from 28/10/10 to 6/11/10 and back, some posts disappeared and reappeared, others (from about 2pm gmt til maybe midnight?) have been consigned to timewarp oblivion :(
So, of course I'd never check Dissensus from work, but there are some occasions when computers I use regularly don't allow streaming Flash stuff... so no Youtube clips.
It's quite intriguing what proportion of threads contain a whole lot of blank posts... Some threads there's certainly no...
Is anyone else experiencing this? -
Sometimes I'll see on a forum page that there has been a new post in a thread, but when I click on the thread it's not there. And sometimes the opposite will happen - someone will post a reply in a thread, but the reply won't be listed on the forum's thread...
Sorry for the very boring technical post but is anyone else having trouble uploading a picture to use as an avatar? Every time I try to either upload one or link to one it says "invalid file".
I've used that file before tho, so I don't think it's the file's fault.
just a quick note to say that having completely f***ed up the board's software i thought it was a good moment to hand over "ultimate" responsibility for dissensus over to someone else to pick up the pieces.
in future sufi will be brother number one.
depending on your perspective the (good/bad)...
Not to add to Matt's woes (!) but the search facility is still banjaxed. You can search for post titles only - not the content of the post. Changing the search settings gives the same results everytime.
More worrying - a google site search doesn't do any better - in fact it shows no results at...
Don't know if anyone noticed, but we ran out of bandwidth a couple of days ago.
The way the site is I paid $800 a year or so ago for a "lifetime" website contract.
The problem is that the bandwidth is capped. We haven't gone over it previously but it seems now that there's quite a bit more...
Annoyingly our beautiful nick(s)kin had to go by-the-by.
I had to upgrade the board software from 3.0.11 to 3.6.0 because it had become really vulnerable to bugs and hacking and that necessetitated abandoning all the old style templates.
I'd like to try and co-erce Anil Bawa to rebuild it for...
I had a chat with Matt recently about helping out around here and it looks like I can now do a bit of moderation. I just moved a thread from "Music" to "Mixes" to prove it. :cool:
I'm conscious that there should be some accountability on Dissensus and that the moderators should be known, so...
Whether it's a good idea or not i'm not entirely certain, but from now onwards (that is unless enough people come forward with good reasons to the contrary) people will have to have a "log-in" to be able to read the forum. I've noticed this at other forums and it seems reasonable enough...
