ep? any ideas whats going on?
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?
Aren't you a mod over there egghead?
Guess Rev doesn't tell them when he is gonna do something.
im been wankers all night ( instant messenger - not me :blushes. I just realized that tz been dowm over 12 hours.
Reverend usually posts when the site will be closed for maintanance but i guess i skipped that thread if there was one...
no tz staff are on my im so i duuno
did you get know about this?
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
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
Yeah, index.php would normally show the message that showthread.php would. - don't know why it would be needed
What time zone is rev in?
i dunno the timezone
rev last posted at tz 12 hours ago about the firefox problem
check this on the frot page
Total Unique: 1819811 | Uniques today: 3670
Users currently online: 1116 | Max users online: 400
That would knock OSNN over most likely, maybe
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?
in 30minutes we went from Total Unique: 1819811
