PM system is broken
« on: September 11, 2013, 07:47 »

* Malek Deneith walks in, takes out a hammer and hammers in a nail in the wall. On that nail he hangs a sign with text written on it in what seems to be blood of some unfortunate small animal

Quote
The ability to send forum PMs is broken. We captured and hold Guts/Gattsu hostage. Fix the PM system or we'll have him deported to be a protagonist in a generic, low budget harem anime.

* Malek Deneith ponders for a moment then nail a smaller parchment to the sign

Well it *didn't* work when I posted the above, I made sure to check. And I was getting the error since yesterday. Right now it does seem fixed - either KK saw the post and stealth-fixed it or it was something server-side and they happened to fix it, but it was broke before. Sure as sure.

Considering the fact that you'll be DMing me soon, all I can say is "Yep. Stealth-fix. Obviously." ;)

I've been getting that error periodically when posting normally.  If I posted more often I'd be really annoyed by it.

I have the same problem every now and then, and I definitely post more than
* thelaptop copies and pastes
yaflhdztioxo.

I usually refresh and it gets through.  I've heard that clearing your cookies/cache may help, but could just be some voodoo.

Edit: Aaand it just happened for this post.

This thing keeps on happening. I think I saw it three times in span of last week. Yes, refreshing helps but it'd be nice to see it fixed... do I need to form a mob of people with torches and pitchforks and knock on rimmon's door? (or door of whatever person inherited the role of maintenance-guy if he doesn't have it anymore)

Ever since I use waterfox, I get that 403 on the entire forum. I think it's some sort of a spam protection thing. The solution is to change your user agent string to something that is whitelisted, such as...

Code: [Select]
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:25.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/25.0
In the case of firefox you can change that somewhere in about:config.

(dunno if this post will be useful since it only happens occasionally for you... but these are my 2 millibitcoins anyway)

Eh, we probably need to rouse a mob for this.

Spam situation isn't getting better either.  Two massive spammers got through the net and I spent a nice amount of time removing all their !@#$% posts.

Is it possible to configure the forum or some plugin to have it show captchas for new untrusted users who have < x posts?

Maybe but I'm not going to attempt it as 1. I probably have no clue what I am doing and will fumble  2. we have a sys-admin already and I would be trampling on his responsibilities.
