Did the home and forum boards just merge. I really like them separate.

I was messing around with things tonight. As you can see from the news posting I was messing around with the forum and knocked it offline for like 45 minutes. Jon was able to get it back up and running. I'll see if he can look at it when he gets out of work tomorrow.

Thanks! I didn't even notice it was down, thanks to me finishing everything up with flickr for tonight. I posted today's photos now too.

The logo disappearing was part of the screw up that happened Sunday night when I knocked the forum offline. To think I screwed up the forum like that and I was even stoned.  Evil I've been on here stoned in the past and I never screwed it up that badly.  Evil

Going on the Internet Wayback Machine at ARCHIVE.ORG I was able to find the URL for the board's logo and restored it.

That's good, but the original home board is still gone. I really liked that feature.

Obviously there are others in charge of the board, but maybe I fixed it today and didn't realize it. I was messing around in the admin settings this afternoon.

The Admins of this forums need to find a way to bring back to old tealish green background on here.

I'll see what I can do. Keep in mind that back in 2005 the message board was hosted on a different message board system. Remember I've been here since 2006.  I don't exactly remember when Chris switched to the current message system "Simple Machines Forum", but I think he switched it because it kept crashing and had bugs.

If only there was a way to modify the message board system to make it change background colors.

I belong to another message board (in this case, the SpongeBuddy Mania Forums) that allows their members to re-skin their background with a choice of themes.

Their message board is created using the Invision Community's "Invision Power" (IP) Board.
