Give it a minute, we were still making some background changes. Let me know if it is still slow for you tomorrow morning. Thanks!

Just so we have a record of it. In IE text in most posts appears default center aligned instead of left aligned. Not every thread is affected. The Q&A thread has been fixed, although this thread is still centered. Private message content also appears centered.

Actually did not think of it as a bug at first, thought maybe just a global template option or something related to new pages not reset.

Cross posted from ls1gto

New URL Redirects are not working for both this site and G8Board. Guessing it had to do with the update on G8 Board today.

Ex: http://ls1gto.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=12
redirects to
http://www.ls1gto.comforums/forumdisplay.php?f=12
instead of
http://www.ls1gto.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=12

So can Doric or someone let the name we are not suppose to say or who ever is actually in charge now know. I am using the new url, but others might think the site is down if they don't notice the missing slash or try the plain domain name. Could also cause problems with a lot of internal links, embedded pictures, and search engine results.

I have asked that we extend the features on the new posts to be like it was before. We will make the change sometime today. Unfortunately, having the members list available poses a few risks including: Bots scraping usernames for spam purposes, and giving hackers who want to hack individual accounts the fuel to do it easily. Also, the members list shows user IDs in plain text which could lead to injection attacks. Rest assured, the decision was well thought out and it is for the benefit of the community. Thanks.

Can you give me some example please? A screenshot? I must be missing something here.

One example is the gif following member name in quote ViewPost , another is button to go to first unread post in new post list, see attached for both. Maybe it's another unique to IE issue, (no, it's that way in Safari, also)but it's the same issue we mentioned on solsticeforum after that update, the buttons are there, but smaller and for some people more difficult to hit.

You're talking over my head :err:, so I'll just have to take your word for it.

Identity theft, theft of services, email spam using data mined from a member list; any or all of the above. I think that's the primary issue. We may have to wait for a more secure form of member list from the software provider before we see teh member list again.

It's not just regular members searching for a member based on a partial name; or a member wishing to change screenname yet beng unable to see if desired name is already in use: it affects the staff as well.
