  1. Rebooting the forum server, should be back in a few minutes.

  2. Haven't done any thorough testing, but should be fixed.
  3. It still works though! I know what the cause of this is, it should be fixed once I get some free time.
  4. Fixed. TSS' certificates last for 3 months before they need to be renewed. They were renewed in plenty of time, but the web server needs to have its config reloaded to have it take effect, and that's what we forgot to do this time.
  5. After much experimentation, this is now fixed.
  6. Should be fixed.
  7. This should be resolved now. You may need to clear cache (easiest way is Ctrl+F5).
  8. We'll be doing a forum software update shortly (you'll notice a maintenance message), followed by an attempt to switch from PHP v5 to v7 to hopefully improve performance. This may result in some downtime, depending on how smoothly the switch goes.

      The forum's future depends on the Switch's success. 

      Don't mess this up Nintendo!

      Nintendo your console better not screw us over

      I take it that it's over now?

      Switch is done (sorry Big N). Please let me know (here is fine) if things seem less stable or there are other problems.

  9. SSMB has ads if you're not logged in - if you are, the code to enable them is removed in its entirety. This is the most likely cause of antivirus complaints if not logged in - by necessity we have to trust in the security measures employed by the ad networks we use, and at times they do let rogue ads slip through the net and onto the site. There's also an affiliate linking feature, which takes effect (i.e. redirects by either adding an affiliate code to the URL, or goes through an external site called VigLink to do so) when you click a non-TSS link, but doesn't do anything before you make said click. If logged in, it's possible that a linked image (e.g. signature, as @Mayor D mentioned) somewhere is coming from a domain name security databases consider untrustworthy. It would usually be the browser that flags this though, not antivirus. Without more info I can't really say more than that. Avast should have a log including the page URL, the URL of the unsafe material, and which malware definition it triggered. We can come to a better conclusion if we have that.
  10. Work will be done on this once I'm not the busiest person on the planet.
  11. This is to do with the "read more" functionality. By default the software truncates the status' text and forces you to go to its single status page (or use the "n replies" popup, which is a custom modification we coded) to read the whole thing. There's an undocumented setting in the original code which enables the "read more" link, but the code for it is broken - the status widget uses a particular method (in HTML/CSS) of stopping the box stretching when you have a particularly long word (as this topic is about), but it has the side-effect of making it impossible to extend the box downwards to match how big the text is - it just stays the same height and the link seems useless. So, we disabled the anti-stretching behaviour in order to get the expansion behaviour working, since that seemed more important what with statuses being such a big part of the community here It's something I'd like to fix properly sometime, but I don't know if it's even possible without mangling the code beyond recognition.
  12. Happy birthday, bmn!
