Almost definitely the weird website issue.

They're up on the website thing that I-don't-remember-who-it-was linked to before:
http://143.95.95.99/~sinfest/

That should hold us off until this whole mess is fixed.


I remember it being more of an host change than a simple "issue". It will probably fix itself (by that I mean someone is getting whipped in a datacenter as we speak).

Could be the deception from withdrawal syndrom speaking, though.

A few days without Sinfest forum-ing... That was more painful than I thought.

Hooray for this workaround for the bugs bedevilling the webhost!

Also, Yay Sapphire for getting in contact with the Sisterhood. And Boo Milton for his terrible attempts to put in a good word for himself.

Thanks, ChastMastr! But how did you get hold of them? The only thing I see when accessing the Sinfest site is "30 Oct 2013" and then a broken image icon...

The link provided worked, providing an "alternative", working version of the site.

BUT the "main" site (http://www.sinfest.net) seems to be up again. Someone's going to post missing comics in forum threads ? Smile

Majorly borked. I just began a thread for today's comic, but it's gone. If it ever existed.

Since we are discussing forum buggery, is it the case for anyone else, that on the front forum page, the link for the comic subforum has stil an old reply (from Oct. 30th) as the latest one?

Yeah, I get that too. New posts are properly indicated, but the "latest post" info is: Wed Oct 30, 2013 3:32 pm Random Wanderer

Which is incorrect. I think the others are wrong, too, but that one's most obvious.

<Edit> Also, the debug error message about inserting keywords from your post into the search table, every time you post, is still there and still annoying. </Edit>

<Further Edit> Oh and while I'm whinging, the "go to latest post" link for a thread on the index page for a forum gets you to the right page, but doesn't scroll to the right post </Further Edit>

Well, as far is i can tell it's not really Tats fault nor his to restore. Must've been a server migration done the 1999 way.
It's acutally more surpising that sinfest's been working so reliably all the time until now, because except for the comic itself, everything sinfest looks quite 1999.

It's like what i imagine it'd be like to use a time machine to go back in time to listen to a visionary of his time talking about your time. Smile

* when the forum first came back up, the first post I made gave an error saying that it had the same key as an existing post (one that had disappeared, and is still gone), suggesting that the missing posts might still be there

* I've posted several times with no change in post count, and my post count actually went down by one at some point after all this started

* I just now posted three times in the postwhoring thread of doom, but they only show up in the Topic Review when you go to post a new reply, and they didn't bump the thread or anything, either
** posting a new topic seems to have this problem, as well

* sometimes I randomly get logged out after making a post

* sometimes the "post reply" or "new thread" button simply takes me to the index
