MESSAGE BOARD WOES
Feb 12th, 2005 at 3:16am
 
WE JUST RECIEVED WORD ON THIS EVERYONE

I am wondering if there is a setting like after so many days or months, that it resets, i am not sure.

The WebMistress will be looking into it, and i hope to have some answers very soon.

YaBB is one of the more reliable boards, which is why we use it, and we have never had a problem with any of our other artists boards.

hopefully, we will be back up soon Embarrassed

thanks for your understanding

If things get going again, I would strongly suggest that no one starts the "Free Posties" thread again. That did nothing but take up a bunch of space and had nothing information-wise to offer. Maybe once there are too many replies over all this thing is going to bite the dust again. Is that possible or am I way off the mark here? I would be the first to admit that I know nothing about computers.

oldfriend, i honestly dont think that thread is what corrupted the board but what the heck, its worth a try so i (and others) will refrain from starting it again.
on the other hand, i believe it has something to do with someone infecting the board with a virus.
i had noticed some funky things going on in the days leading up to the crash but didnt really give it any thought.  thats how a virus would operate too.

I have to agree, I don't think it was that thread.  I have been on other YaBB message boards with 20 times the number of posts, and they didn't crash.   I, too, noticed some unusual things the last few days.  I know nothing about computers, but can someone infect a message board with a virus just by posting on it?  And if they did, wouldn't it still be on here?  I mean, wouldn't the virus have to be "removed" to keep it from continuing to do the same thing?

well.....you all will be upset with the pirate....i just read this thread but i made a pit stop in the general threads and restarted free posties......i cant imagine that a thread would do this.....as far as volume.....before the first crash well had both general and romantics threads well pack......im not a expert either but it does sound like a virus......it also impacts certain members like brew......he loses all his posts everytime.....i hope they solve the problem soon.

I say dump YaBB(I mean this losing info has happened several times)... there are only hundreds of other free message board systems(most better since YaBB still uses Pearl... an old form of web coding, I know of a few good ones).

I would be willing to share my experiences and lend a hand(been doing websites for over 5 years)....

Well if there is a backup of the old info it could (in theory) be replaced back on here.  Then again sometimes it is more time and hassle than it is worth.  Hopefully it will all work out for the best.   8)

Hey everyone,  one of my yahoo groups is also having trouble with blocked messages and stuff.   This group is kinda paranoid because it's geared toward stuff they think the govt is not wanting us to know about, if you get what I mean.  Shocked They think they're being hacked into by "disinformers".  Someone else said their other groups that are similar are having problems.  I think it's just a virus or something going around in general, we're not the only ones having trouble.  Hang in there!

Hey, what happened to our pictures?   Undecided  Now I have to look at the posters' names to see who's posting.

I recommend the V Bulletin system.  V Bulletin has all the advantages of this system here (and then some), with none of the drawbacks.  Several other forums I visit use V Bulletin and do quite well with it.  It's worth considering.
