1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Is there a limit to the number of recipients that can be added to a group PM?

    Edit: Yes, 8.

    Anyone have a problem with not being taken to the newest post in a thread, but just to the top of the last page visited?

    Can someone do something about the witchdoctors spamming MC with their services? I mean, I enjoy a bit of black magic for hire as much as the next guy, but I'm a bit leery of procuring such services via the interwebs.

    I think I had it since yesterday as well.

    If this is a ploy to get people to get off the net and go outside, I suspect it's going to be much more effective than initially anticipated.

    Combing through the same 30 post looking for new content everytime an updated thread is clicked is actually a lot less intriguing than it sounds.


    Edit: Even when posting a reply you're taken to the top of the page, not the post you just made.

    Edit edit: Not when editing, though.

    I remember the same thing happened sometime in the beginning of the new software. Maybe a new update caused it?

    I find that you get taken to the top of the page when you click stuff before the page has finished loading. Once it's finished loading, everything is fine. Next time it happens, check that.

    Same here. First it goes to the right place for half a second and then it goes to the top and stays there. Should be the other way around, like SB describes.

    Just seems like there's been an abnormal amount. I'm sure the powers that be were well aware of it. I think I just wanted to type "black magic"

    Deleting spam threads function isn't working through the live site.

    Since the change I've been sent to all parts of the page except for the first one, unread.

    Is it possible to block the IP address of this black magic spammer in MC so he can't set up any more users?

    It's becoming very annoying.

    Thanks in advance.

    Can the picture of the guy lighting a cigarette be removed from the feed? I don't care about smoking, but he looks ridiculously try-hard.

    That's why I suggested that once posts from users that signed up 1-5 days ago -- and have a post count of <5 or something -- get reported multiple times, that post/thread gets automatically hidden until mod approval. This would reduce spam to a minimum. But maybe that's too difficult to implement, or the risk of "non-spam" posts from new users getting hidden due to excessive reporting isn't worth it.

    Getting a new IP-adress should be a breeze for him given that he has mastered black magic.
    But damn, he's flooding MC.

    What happens for me if I'm catching up on a thread, i can read through for a few times, getting to the first new post, but then for some reason I'll be taken like 15-20 pages deeper in the thread, and THEN the "first new post" is whatever the next page after that jump was.

    Also on the homepage, when i'm looking at all the threads i am subscribed to, you have however many number of threads. You hit more you get another set of threads. However, when I hit more a third time, it just keeps loading without ever actually showing another set of threads.

    I get that I'm basically asking for a fix so I can be even more passively involved with SF but whatever. Also considering the mods have basically never responded to anything I've said here in four years, I'm not expecting a fix.

    T.I.A.
