I haven't been able to log in on my phone. A minor annoyance. Almost certainly from me screwing with the auto-fill settings earlier, but I thought I'd mention it.

Could this be related to the problem I've always had? I can't log in using the auto-fill settings when I click on the link in an e-mail notification (which works in every other phpBB forum I'm registered at); I always have to go to the forum index page in my browser and click the login button.

Why are certain forums (most notably Pure Star Wars) not showing up in my "Active Topics" list? I can't find any setting for it in my profile. Most every other forums shows up fine, even HoS.

Expired security certificate issues again. I've been logging onto here just fine with this fancy new tablet until this afternoon, when Google decided to be an ass about it.

Security certificate expiry confirmed, only three months since the last renewal. I thought these things were renewed annually?

Then Google is being stupid. Which is fairly typical of Google.

Any chance of getting it renewed faster than last time? :roll:

No comment on problems per se, but a thought. Would it improve performance any to prune or condense some of the stickies?

For example, in Sci-Fi: 'Grand 40K Sticky', 'Idiot Master Chief Fanboys'. Halo isn't talked about very much anymore. 40K still gets a bit of circulation, but mostly it's old-schoolers here talking about it. The 40K Sticky is from... 2008. It's almost a full 10 years old. The Master Chief Wankers bit is from 2005.

The announcements about 'User Purge' and 'New Moderators' are at least a couple years old.

To be quite clear I'm not saying to get rid of all of them-- the stickies defining the purpose of each forum and setting forth rules and whatnot are still fine, obviously. Just suggesting a bit of housekeeping, mainly.

I suspect this would fall in Mike's wheelhouse though unless I'm wrong?

When I try to use the new posts page I get:
This page isn’t working
bbs.stardestroyer.net didn’t send any data.
ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE
I'm running Chrome on Windows 10.

The rest of the forum appears to be running fine.

And, it's damned annoying.

It works fine on my phone, but not my tablet. On the other hand, my tablet's waiting on me to install another update, so that might be it.

As well as the security certificate thing (again), when I click on the "New Posts" link I get a "Secure Connection Failed" error. This is after I've done a temp bypass of the certificate failure and logged in.

The errors above seem to have cleared. Anyone else still seeing glitches?

Exactly which quick link has problems seems to be switching randomly. Now it's

https://bbs.stardestroyer.net/search.ph ... ive_topics

that won't load.
