    no mate. Stuck at work.
    You got Rev on your IM list?

    There has been no update to vBulletin so maybe Rev is rebuilding some counters, does take a really long time?

    mobile paging works wonders.

    Big Booger came online and stated the forums are switched off and not sure why. It might be due to the mysql worm

    Big Booger says:at the top of the forums page in admin it says Alert: The forums are currently turned off! in bright red

    i dunno

    no maintanance scheduled.

    Is it definatly maintainance... ?
    Just seems the forum redirects to the frontpage?

    Virtuanews has lots of index.php that do exactly the same.. could a file have been uploaded to the wrong place?

    Well the forums are off for maintainance and the forum index.php redirects to teh forums.

    Guess if that is the case, you have to wait for rev.
    There is no mention of any kind of security risk with vbulletin at this time.

    My only thought it once again the site counters.
    The search index (and others) take hours to rebuild.

    If Rev has just purged some old threads via the admin cp it will be neccesary to rebuild these counters or there will be bad search results.

    Just speculating tho :)

    thats what i thought.

    Big Booger ( an admin) think it might be down for maintanance but also thinks 12 hours is a bit exxcessive

    Well these counters can take that long and it is advisible to have the site off while you doing it, but on the other hand - I don't and have never had any ill affects.

    having a huddle with 4 other mods in instant messenger and no one knows what is going on.

    The re-direct on the forum must be hard coded? so i guess Reverend is doing something yet no one can track him down yet

    very odd

    Yeah, index.php would normally show the message that showthread.php would. - don't know why it would be needed :eek:

    What time zone is rev in?

    i guess i have no choice but to wait it out.

    the other mods and admins do not know what is going on and the server is linux so should be running fine.

    we are experiencing crazy numbers on the homepage i guess due to the redirects from the forum

    very weird to say the least

    Not sure why the max value is still 400... guess the 400 is going on max of 400 users in 15 mins (as osnn and its forums have at the moment)

    i noticed it shows max users as 1102 and after a few refreshes it will go to say 199 and then suddenly back to high numbers

    could this be from the closed forums?
