Title: Current forum crash (October 2009)
Post by: VS on October 04, 2009, 09:40:00 AM
Most of the information can be found on backup forum: "Topic: We have a problem with the International Forum!" (http://forum.simutrans.us/index.php?topic=10.0)



The only thing that seems to have been broken is read/unread status of boards. That's why you will see all boards marked with (http://forum.simutrans.com/Themes/default/images/on.gif) and none with (http://forum.simutrans.com/Themes/default/images/off.gif). Fortunately messages' status is not damaged, so you will not see everything as (http://forum.simutrans.com/Themes/default/images/english/new.gif).


Sorry for the inconvenience.

Good job; as always. Thanks :)

The only thing that seems to have been broken is read/unread status of boards.[/img].

Two things solve it quickly: 1) Show unread posts since last visit (http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?action=unread), click on and it'll list all posts that are truly unread. 2) "Mark ALL messages as read", near forum footer, this will turn off "unread" status on boards.

It seems that some user accounts have been "deleted". Not sure what to do - it might take as much as 3 days, or just a few hours to find out. Meanwhile, if you are affected by this issue, please report:

WE HAVE GOT A SUPER CAPTCHA!

Not even an uber-spambot can defeat it :P

I'll add - you can register again just fine and I will take care of wiring your posts back to you and all that. As long as you can get into contact with me, there is 100% chance you get 99.9% back ;D There is already one "repaired" user so I know it is possible.
