    btw Daniel I think there might be something wrong with Quote tags.






    No, wait. I mean spoiler tags. Just in case you didn't know.

    This sounds serious, Shauna. We may have to do another two-week server move.

    Spam-o-Matic is announcing that we have denied 1 user registration. Dunno if that really is necessary!

    I will get a screencap at home, assuming it is still there.

    Turned off the Spam-o-Matic statistics. For anyone wondering, it uses a database of known spammers and blocks them from registering.

    Yep! Although I'm pretty certain it was in place for many months before the server move too. I'm not certain of the exact configuration it was using but I'll make a note to compare it to the old server setup at some point and match it.

    Are you going to try to get the Streams tab to work again, or scrap it? I'm not sure I remember how it worked. There was a table in the DB and a shell script that called a Ruby script via cron job to update it periodically by fetching JSON data Twitch using their API. There was some PHP involved to let Ruby talk to vB properly, I think because vB caches the tab titles and it needed to force a cache refresh to get the "Streams (1)" to work. Then probably more PHP to actually display the contents of the page and some vB config stuff to get the contents to show up in the right tab. Good luck.

    We probably still have the table, but the other stuff I'm not sure on. Can you PM Mike, Unne? And if you have your latest copy of the file itself, it'd probably save Mike analysing it for any potential (if unlikely) hacks from the security flaw. I'd like to get it working again, I actually used it sometimes!

    On another note: Big thanks to Samuraid who just fixed the email issue. The next priorities will probably be the spoiler tags not opening and the style related issues, so hopefully we can get them fixed.

    I used the Streams tab too. Would love to see it up and running again!

    I actually just told you everything I remember, in my post. Also I don't have backups of any of the files, the only copy of everything was on the server. Probably in ~/local/bin, plus the crontab, plus streams.php in the vB folder. The code was very short, you can read it and see if there were any problems.

    I just noticed the spoiler tags aren't working either. Someone should look into that.

    Has someone mentioned rep not showing up on posts? Because rep isn't showing up on posts.

    I mentioned it, but after thinking about it I think I prefer it this way. Probably an unpopular opinion but I vote we leave rep visible only to the person who gets it.
