    Yeah, for me the New Post function works, but when I click on one of the links in that section, none of the new posts are actually there until I reload the page.

    Now randomly when I click on a thread or change the page an ad page comes up for Good Housekeeping, etc. It's not a pop-up it actually replaces the Match-Cut page and I have to click back to get back to MC. Not happening on any other site I go to.

    Can one of the admins respond to this stuff please?
    What do we need to do (as a community) to get this resolved?

    Yeah, I have to refresh every page, regardless of which browser or operating system I'm using. I've never had popups or been sent to another page, though.

    The refreshing issue is one I also experience. Mods can't fix this issue. I wager that number8's aware of the problem but working to decipher how easily able he can fix the issue.

    I empathize with everyone, though. It's frustrating.

    Well, I'm gonna be honest, I have nothing to say. dreamdead is correct that I've been trying this entire time, doing edits every couple of days, but could not seem to fix any of the problems. I don't know why we decided to switch from VB3 to VB4 but it's becoming clear to me that the general consensus out there among VB users is that it's a mistake to do so. If anyone is better experienced with VB, I'm willing to hand the site over.

    Well I think we decided to switch to VB4 because VB3 was equally broken. The thread ratings weren't working, the site was wicked slow, and there were random errors here and there.

    Do we have anyone on the forums who's a VB expert? (i can find one if needed).

    Unix jock here. I can help, but I'm not sure you want me to. I sure as hell don't want to take anything over.

    Two questions:

    - Is the database backed up?
    - Do you have shell access on this hosting account?

    Another last resort I was considering was to start a fresh VB5 forum and just manually import old posts. But it's an entirely new system so we'll lose all the design and also features that are run by plugins that won't be compatible anymore. I'm perfectly willing to just go barebones in favor of functionality (I know a lot of you are using Tapatalk anyway and not seeing any problems because of it).

    Okay, you'll need to give me shell & database access. If your host allows it, set up temp accounts & then delete them once I am done.

    If the host doesn't allow it, you'll have to trust me with your access-- and then change your info once the site is fixed.

    If there's a fresh copy of VB zipped on the server, I can probably get this done by this time tomorrow.

    Wait! Do that instead. That'll be easier.

    Yeh that's fine with me.

    I'm pretty sure they upgrade the plugins to work with newer version for VB. But I can live without taptalk until we get the basic function of the site working.

    Tapatalk would be fine. I only mentioned that because people using it are already using the site without the design or the plugins anyway. There are little stuff on the forums that are not VB features but are plugins and hacks that Raiders implemented and I had to recreate when we switch to 4, like showing who rated a thread.

    Ah I see.

    Yeh fuck it. Let's start from scratch and build it like we did years ago. Why not? Will be fun.

    I'll vote for whatever is the least amount of headache for all those who work behind the scenes. I harbor no nostalgia. I always look forward. Only thing I need to know is what size you want the banners to be.

    The switch was made because we were running an unsupported (outside the forums) and outdated version and I recommended to E that it could be best to start fresh with the latest release in case support was needed for the implementation. I had indeed resisted vB4 for years, largely out of laziness but also because I remember reading some warnings, but those types of user forums always tend to verge on melodramatic. Sorry it has all been so difficult.

    I vote also for whatever is easiest. I have barely been here for the last like, five months. I think some similar use with respect to film ("thread") ratings would be nice since it seems to have been a successful format, but functionality would always be highest priority.

    Yeah, the warnings seem to be a pretty common consensus. Apparently VB was bought by another company back then and the original developers left, and 4 was built by the new people.
