avatar
Love the Make Them Famous widget. Tongue
avatar
Haha no problem @brian51
avatar
thanks for working so hard on the site for us !
avatar
Sweet!
avatar
Well I do have some good news, albeit a little bit technical. But I did manage to uncorrupt the database so that it will allow us to have more than one theme. The good news is that I will no longer have to do design updates on the live site. For quite some time MS has received no refresh due to some of these issues, so i'm glad that things will be a little easier going forward.
avatar
That may very well end up being what we do. I'm actually pretty sure you can do a MyBB -> MyBB import too. I might try that to get the posts and the users, and all of that, and just redo the setup of the actual forum itself.
avatar
If the update makes changes to the database, circumvent would be upgrading separately, then importing.
avatar
Ouch. You try a whole new fresh install of MyBB, then export/import this database?
avatar
ooh, that really sucks Sad
avatar
We've been running on the same installation of MyBB, and actually the exact same theme, plugins, and codebase, since 2014 or 2015. Besides routine security updates, our codebase literally hasn't changed. i think it was one of the minor 1.8.x updates that screwed up the table in our database.
avatar
We have no such installation here, but we do have a development installation on an actual VPS somewhere, where most of our actual development occurs. The problem I'm running into is that I literally cannot import new themes because our database is corrupt, so even if i develop an update, i cannot make it live unless I want to edit our actual live installation.
avatar
@hans: have you tried running a backup test server in a vm to test themes and such? Thats how i tested stuff for my bbs Before implementing it. Sort of like a local live you can mess with, without consequences.
avatar
I wouldn't object to taking a look at least. Never make promises though.
avatar
@Guardian: Hmm I might send you a shout out at some point then and see if we can get this theme issue figured out. I haven't been able to work on anything without updating the live site because only one theme actually works on our installation, so that's been a little frustrating from time to time.
avatar
Tongue Whenever I can.
avatar
Guardian made a strong showing in the forums tonight Smile
avatar
Terrible with the design stuff, not bad at figuring out settings issues.
avatar
is bryan a member here Smile
avatar
Anyone here still sharp on MyBB technical stuff? We've managed to somehow corrupt our themes table and I haven't been able to create a new one to work on a couple of (*minor*) updates to get us a little more up-to-date. I'll look at it in more detail one of these days, but if I can avoid writing a script to uncorrupt it and anyone has more knowledge than I do, shoot me a PM!
avatar
okay yes there has been a couple NE sters this week, this morning i was looking at what Quinn was doing Smile
avatar
One for the mid and northern east coast.
avatar
Ya sorry, not sure what storm your referring to ?
avatar
Thanks ya'll! How'd everyone fare with the storm? If you dealt with it? Just a lot of downed trees and power lines.
avatar
Ah yeah life comes first always! Haha. But it's good having you around man. And congratulations on the new baby!!

It was a good game, just not good enough for the WIN.
avatar
dallas is playing again on TV
avatar
the dallas game is a total dog fight right now man !! 7-7
avatar
Thanks yall!
avatar
good luck hans, and congrats on the safe move.
avatar
Yeah, mental health is important. Life has gotten so much better since I've changed my outlook towards jobs. Don't let them ruin you.
avatar
Miss you guys, glad to be back around
avatar
yeah i got a job at a warehouse but i quit before i even started. You might say beggars can't be choosers, but this job was god awful. I could just tell it was going to be a nightmare going in. I'm gonna be picking up some hours at an old job of mine in the meantime while I'm searching so I'll still have income coming in.
avatar
Hans, thanks for the update man.. and keep us posted on the job hunting !
avatar
Congrats! Maybe? Tongue Good luck with that!
avatar
Well guys, I'm here in Wilmington. Still gotta find a job but all is good. Big Grin
avatar
We can host it here if that's what's convenient. Long as we aren't hosting something CPU intensive it shouldn't be an issue.
avatar
I'd be fine with either. Maybe another use for Makestation... project hosting?
avatar
or better yet how about a ZIp file, just extract it and open the HTML file to view?
avatar
if I had somewhere to host it I could upload the entire folder and setup the HTML as a home page, then you guys could get a google maps style viewer with maybe weekly/bi-weekly updates?
avatar
It looks fantastic!
avatar
I finally got around to rendering a map for the MC server, took around 30 seconds, not bad, was able to run mapcrafter on all 8 of my CPU cores! Big Grin
avatar
ohhh, thanks Spook !, you and I can hold the fort here whiles hes gone Smile
avatar
traveling, he'll be back soon
avatar
i am but i am wondering where guardian is ?
avatar
Hope you guys are doing well around here.
avatar
Not quite. In the process of moving, been terribly busy. I'll be back around more guys I promise! On the bright side landed a new car and a new job. Just gotta get this house moved out of and get everything finalized down there.
avatar
last day of july
avatar
hey hey
avatar
blake is back now Smile
avatar
i hope the mc server is still active ?
avatar
so I went ahead and setup a mincraft server, PM me if you're interested in joining
avatar
Ah, I hear Wilmington ain't too bad. Good luck!
avatar
Sucks about having to move, but congrats on going back to school!
avatar
Moving a couple hours south to Wilmington NC. Getting ready to go back to school to finish up my degree!
avatar
Mostly a quiet saturday night here, guys
avatar
Fun. I may have overlooked this... but where you headed to?
avatar
I still have to find a job down there too... that's what I'm really stressing about. Going to take some time and fill out some applications today.
avatar
No kidding. It's a pain in the ass.
avatar
Eh, I always hate moving. I like the change that comes with them, but the move itself is always a pain.
avatar
Haha hey don't feel bad. I've been busy lately myself. Getting ready for a move. Life happens. Good to see y'all around.
avatar
I need to quit jumping around from game to game, and build something impressive enough to share.
avatar
right now Zork is the Hot thread around these parts
avatar
Good to be back. Just got to keep the hiatus' very limited.
avatar
hey great to have u back,,,
avatar
Yeah, sorry. Been busy. Things are starting to get... hectic around here.
avatar
Guardian is missing
avatar
its been slow the last day or so here
avatar
its late on sunday night now
avatar
I am still waiting on the Zork reply ?
avatar
yeah lol, but nobody's made any actions to go anywhere so we're still by the mailbox.
avatar
zork isnmaking a strong comeback now
avatar
Oh hey aldini! Long time no see!
avatar
hey PAL!
avatar
Hey Aldini!
avatar
your message.......
avatar
yes, i want us to start working toward 20 K postings !
avatar
Ah the nostalgia! And a big ass congratulations to us! We're established! Cheers to 20K, for when that day comes!
avatar
also congrats makestation on reaching the 10,000 posts barrier
avatar
ZORK is one of the first video games ever, copyright 1978, came after colossal cave adventure, completely text based, I'm doing the graphics on the thread for everybody's benefit lol
avatar
10,000 posts!!!
avatar
actually i have forgotten what Zork is also ?
avatar
What is Zork?
avatar
so brian, I know you must be excited I decided to try doing Zork again, please be sure to post guys, Big Grin
avatar
Hey guys!
avatar
good morning everyone !
avatar
Good lord... figures i fix the captcha and this happens. Huh
avatar
I just deleted about 4 pages worth of spambot threads in the information section :o)
avatar
Among a few other small things to bring us up to the times a little more. Brian had a few good suggestions that i know of, which were posted on the forums as well the other day
avatar
I'm planning to refresh a few things around here a little bit fairly soon though. Nothing crazy. I feel like our design as we have it now works pretty well, but what do you guys think about the idea of using a somewhat brighter shade of blue for the forums?
avatar
Yeah it's at the bottom of the page too. It actually took me a little while to get it set up. This plugin works well but it's a pain in teh ass to install
avatar
I somehow overlooked it until I read the post.... so I guess it worked. Tongue
avatar
also avatars are supported here Smile
avatar
both Tongue
avatar
the chatbox on SM? Or the chat room we have here?
avatar
also, if setup right it'll be better than the chatbox Tongue mostly because it'll be integrated into the site, not a separate page.
avatar
Night shift, vampire of the night, checking in yo!
