    Default Missing images

    One of BT's nameservers (a server that tells the internet where BT lives) crashed yesterday. The server did an automatic restart, but apparently is having problems loading BT still. I have put in a ticket with our hosts support and will update you when we have an answer/solution.
    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    I was just wondering if it was me or BT. Thanks for the update.

    It appears that it has something to do with our hotlinking protection. This is a redirect (think of it as an image swap) that shows a specific image on other sites stealing images from BT. With hotlink protection off the site runs smoothly (so it will remain off until the host and I can figure out why it affected BT as it did) so we're back to normal as of this post

    For anyone curious to see which image I created to replace the ones being stolen, click on the link below

    Our hotlink protection is back on and appears to be running smoothly From what we could determine the nameserver crash borked one of the settings in the hotlink protection.

    I hate it when that happens!



    What could be worse than being borked?
