Changes

ÄlphämönkëyÄlphämönkëy Registered User regular
So I made a fair number of changes. Mainly I had to merge two databases into one. Its an easy concept, but the way the split occured, no planning went into what would happen if we merged back together, and so we had a bunch of overlapping topics\posts. I fixed it all by hand coded queries (explaining the slowness). Now here is what is still broken \ I couldn't get working last night. There were a bunch of posts from H+R and I couldn't put them into the search engine. I figure they will probably prune soon, so it wont matter much anyway. I do plan on rebuilding those tables, but it wont be for a while. During the database merge I had to first clean both databases. 202643 posts and 11 topics were all broken as well as some private messages, users, and votes. If things are broekn, let me know here.

Its been a long night, I'm going to bed.

    Curiouser and curiouser... It actually took me a moment to realize that 'Memorable Threads' is now 'Archives', so I feel a little silly.

    the lack of sigs probably streamlines the forums a bit

    somethin' probably reset them. I honestly don't know much about the code that goes into making a forum run, but from what I've seen it's a relatively simple task to forcefully alter their activation.

    could be wrong, though. either way this is badass.

    The lack of sigs actually kind of looks refreshing. Clean. But others may be more disappointed :)

    So is reopening of account registration waiting on the PHP3.0 upgrade?

    Also, it seems that the keyword search function only works for posts made since the reboot last night. Is this intentional?

    I agree totally. Though I doubt it would go down well if made permanent somehow.

    Sure. The forum looks clean without sigs, but clean isn't always a GOOD thing.

    Without sigs, there's just something missing.

    I don't like it. At all.

    Chatforum and ot-forums still have their own policies, mods, and issues. The Monkey Den is going to serve for general bug reports and on-topic issues. META will serve for chat issues.

    See also, archive and chatlog.

    The only problem I see is the chatmods going into OT territory and starting up another wave of asshattery. Granted, the current chatmods are for the most part more responsible than that, but it could still happen.

    Pantsmonkey made that thread in G&T, and Pants was a G&Ter until he got banned for whatever.

    That ain't your thread.
