Not sure if this is related, but the “Favorite Movie Quotes” thread is not showing in the recent feed, even though the latest post is within the last 6 hours...

 

 

That happened on a thread I started a couple of weeks ago. I think it was this one:

@Daddyjt It's not related, but I fixed it (you're talking about the feed, I was talking about sub categories that were in the wrong parent categories). Movies, Videos, Artists, etc are gray areas between audio related and general related...so...I'll just put it in audio feed.

 

@Sk1Bum Fixed that feed a while ago.

So, for the past week or so the site has been 'unavailable' or 'unable to find'. This error was intermittent. I just happened to upgrade the engine software a few days ago and I thought it was related...but it wasn't. The issue was with the nameserver software on the server. It's been resolved.

Good catch, Greg - thanks.  I was starting to wonder if I had a problem - I was thinking of asking when you put up the notice.  Glad you didn't keep focusing on tour changes as the cause - that's a tough one when you've made a change like that.

 

BTW, love the notice banner.  Really useful, and very welcome.

I think the database is still down. They are working on it currently. I am not sure when it will be back online.

Is it possible to have a two-step submit process for this area, maybe a popup when you hit the submit button that says this forum is for website issues only. If you're inquiring about manuals, repairs, or anything other than website mechanics, the post does not belong here?

 I can look into it, but I know that will require a lot of custom code.

A short-term solution (maybe long term too) would be to move the link to it to somewhere less front and center..., 

 

Push it to the bottom of the page(s) somewhere.  

 

Regular members will know where it is, and find it, when needed.  New Members that think it's where to post, will no longer see it as an easy quick shot over the bow.

 

I'm thinking how website support is positioned on so many other sites..., at the bottom of the Contact Page, or even in the smaller "links" in the template at the bottom of certain "About" pages.  

 

I think having it at the top was good for the transition, as we were all active in helping find areas that needed work.  Now that the site for the most part is running smoothly, it's time to put that link somewhere other than front-and-center.

 

...just a suggestion.
