    Is this the same KnightMB that sold us out?

    Some of this is right, but I will make some corrections though since the history of it needs to be true. The forum wasn't sold to the highest bidder. The moderators of the forum were already trying to sell it to someone else without asking or informing me, for about $5k from what I remember. So...

    Is this the same KnightMB that sold us out?

    Still disappointed with the behavior I see in this topic. Everyone should be ashamed of this. For those that chose not to participate in this trash topic, thanks. For those of you here posting the usual garbage, it reflects poorly on the community here. It also reflects poorly on your character...

    Is this the same KnightMB that sold us out?

    Wow, is all I can say after reading this topic. When Trevor wouldn't answer my e-mails about how the forum was doing, I figured I would come check myself. It seems ownership has changed again. But lo and behold I find a major conspiracy topic like this. It was both disappointing to read and...

    [nearly original] Open Letter to Endless Sphere Community

    This seems to be a common mis-conception here. The forum was corporate owed from the beginning. The main site had business on it totally irrelevant to this forum. Go check the main site now, http://endless-sphere.com/ and let me know how much of the corporate influence you see on this site now...

    [nearly original] Open Letter to Endless Sphere Community

    Have you tried clicking on his username and looking at his post history? Thousands, no? Anyone can buy/sell anything at the forum (online market area), so it's hardly "non-commercial". Most donations that come in, come at the tune to $1 to $10. There have been larger donations, but I don't...

    Forum Maintenance Tonight

    I'm checking now, the PM database appears to be identical to the last one, the only difference is that it has a few "more" messages due to today I'm sure. If you don't mind me checking, I'll use your account as a base to compare. :)

    Forum Maintenance Tonight

    Ok, it took a long time, but the new stuff is online. Mainly, I want to make sure that everything here is working properly. Older Attachments might not be available for a while since they are running through a process to try and repair those that have been corrupted. Any new attachments you...

    Forum Maintenance Tonight

    Just a heads up, tonight at Midnight, the forum will be a frozen state while I do some behind the scenes maintenance. For those tech heads, it's an upgrade on both bandwidth and CPU power. The process will take a few hours, so don't fret when you see the "forum is down for maintenance" message...

    Forum Software Upgrade Tonight Midnight

    Going to try a more human interactive approach. It's a little irony that my hack version seemed to work better than the google version.

    Forum Software Upgrade Tonight Midnight

    I have, turned on the Google reCaptcha today for registration. We'll see how well it works. If it doesn't work well, there are more plugins the software comes with like custom QA, 3D text solve, etc.

    Forum Software Upgrade Tonight Midnight

    The software upgrade "seems" to have gone through without a hitch so far, time will tell if we run into anything else :shock: The image repair, luckily doesn't require the forum to go down, just mainly repairing the actual image files on the server. This can be done without interrupting...

    Forum Software Upgrade Tonight Midnight

    Also, can someone give me some quick links to forums that have messed up images so I can benchmark if things are being fixed properly?

    Forum Software Upgrade Tonight Midnight

    Is the "Minimal" theme not small enough to work or are these themes just better turned specifically for mobile devices?

    Forum Software Upgrade Tonight Midnight

    Hey Everyone, I know it's been a while, but tonight I'm going to upgrade the forum software. Backups will be made of everything first before I do this, so no worries if things go wrong for some reason. I'm also going to fix up the image problem here (and clean out the thousands of orphan images)...

    ES is BACK!

    AT&T are doing some fiber maintenance tonight from 12:00AM to 6:00AM (-6:00 CST), so for those on the forum between those times today, expect it to go up and down a lot while they do whatever the heck they are doing to the fiber nodes. :!: :!: :!:

    ES is BACK!

    To add to this, since this has people's attention, the test round robin server is currently located at http://sandbox.endless-sphere.com/ which is where I've been experimenting with multiple fail over servers. It's nothing fancy really, it just tells you what server you happen to be on when you...

    ES is BACK!

    Yes, all it took was a simple reboot *very annoying*, but it does happen once every few years. I kept the server offline for a few more hours this morning to pour over logs in case anything *suspicious* was the cause of the problem. I agree and am also working on that. Mainly, mirroring is all...

    Search problems, fixes, suggestions (merged threads)

    How about now? When I checked, I had pages of active topics. I did notice they put a hard 1,000 limit when you select the "show me all posts forever" option.
