READ THIS NOW BEFORE THOU ART SMITED BY A PALADIN OF TYRANNY

Postby Sajuuk » Wed Dec 03, 2008 6:33 pm

MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! BOW BEFORE YOUR SYSADMIN FOOLISH MORTALS!
sorry xD

HOKAY, SO HERES THE BOARDS (yay!)

Heres a rundown of what happened:
a) someone made a ginormous post (~25 pages of cleartext) which is a BAD idea. it slowed down the SQL server and impaired the service of other accounts hosted on our box. Which is a violation of the ToS for our old host. Thus, our account was closed.
b) webmaster bought new account and migrated things over

Heres what this means:
a) 64,000 Character limit in posts is BACK (some of you may remember this from our old days on Forumer and InvsisionFree)
a-1) if you need to post something bigger than that (and i know some of you do), save it as a word doc, or better - an HTML file (using save for web option in word or Save As -> HTML), and upload it to your FTP account

b) if you didnt have an FTP account and need one (some of you will), contact me
b-1) if you HAD an FTP account, your login name now has "u51538505-" (minus the quotes) in front of it. CONTACT ME SO WE CAN SET YOUR PASSWORD.

c) ADS WILL BE RETURNING. Our old hosting was about $140/year (due to other websites hosted, domain names, and dedicated IP address). Our new hosting is about $240/year. Thus, ads = cash flow.

Please direct all comments/questions/concerns to me in the form of posts in this thread.

To check if your post is over the limit without actually trying to post it, Word has a Word Count tool that also contains the number of characters. For those using less...sophisticated editors, c/p into Word is an option, also Unix/Linux have a command line tool that can be used as follows:

Code: Select all

wc -c file
.
Haaaahahahaha!!!!

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pron surfed, weak and weary,
Over many a strange and spurious site of ' hot xxx galore',
While I clicked my fav'rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning, and my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour,
"'Tis not possible!", I muttered, "Give me back my free hardcore!

Or just use Notepad++ which has a wonderful character count at the bottom of the window.
