Heyas, everybody.

I have just gone through all of the different forum accounts (like VIP, Grammar and Moderators) and done some huge changes in the layout.

This might have caused some of you to suddenly find you can no longer access a forum you had access to earlier (as I went through literally hundreds of different profiles - mistakes could've easily happened). So if there is something wrong with the setting for your profile, please PM an administrator - or simply post about it in this topic, and we will sort it out immediately.

Thanks :)

Intersting tid-bits:

After going through every Translator (some 150 people) - there was one profile I had missed... Stebbi's.

You tried to hide, you naughty badger-poker! :bleh:

Tom, there seems to be a huge problem!!!

Reup can't create new topics in the game discusion forum (and neither can I). The new update has just been added Kwik Snax, but someone needs to open the game discusion topic.

Reup 16-04-2006 02:57 PM

Yeah :) I was just about to post this in this topic as well, but Seb beat me to it :angel:

So could you please give me back write privilges in the Games forum?

I made the topic but it does not link to it properly. What is going wrong? I do not have a lot of time to look into this and I will let Tom handle the forum permission flag issues himself but if you tel me what is wrong I will try and make the link work.

Sebatianos 16-04-2006 03:32 PM

Ah, that link back to the review has to be done manually, no problem taken care off.

Thanks for creating the post!

The next update will be on Tuesday, hopefully by then the permosions will be given back to the updaters :ok:

Tom Henrik 16-04-2006 03:37 PM

Ah. Whoopsie. Will fix the masks immediately :ok:

Stebbi 16-04-2006 04:26 PM

WEll waht exactly were you doing?

Tom Henrik 16-04-2006 04:33 PM

I cleaned up a mask mess that has been giving admins some serious head-ache from back when this forum was created - and it has only gotten worse since then.

I had to redesign the entire mask setup from scratch, and then edit every single member on this site that has access to a hidden forum (like the Grammar forum, the Updates forum and the new Moderator forum). This was well over hundreds of user profiles. Which is why mistakes can easily happen - like with the case of the updaters suddenly not being able to start topics in the Games forum.


(We had 25 different masks earlier, and using that system was extremelly troublesome. If we had opened another hidden forum, we'd have to create at least 8 more masks just for that new forum. Now we have 12 masks, and adding a new hidden forum would mean only a single new mask.)

That was what I did ;)
