Yeah, last time it was caused by someone using non standard characters.  Like copy pasting from Word inserting their magic quotes and stuff like that.  I'll send you a PM with my email address, and you can send me the content of the post you were trying to make for debugging.

The perfect punishment would be leaving his post unedited and damning himself publicly with his own words.

What happens to Mods is a separate issue.  Until then I edited out the part people have explicitly complained about, and that is most likely to cause immediate offense and upset.

Readded you as author.

I responded to your PM.

If it's a bug (rather than a deliberate feature or easter egg), it's one in the core SMF software.

Today is also my 17 year anniversary of using AGS, so hooray for that.

I had this same problem a few months ago, and the guy was insistent he had all the questions correct.  He didn't...  All I can suggest is someone guides him through the process if he's really that stuck.

Search is already fixed.  It'll go out In the Next Release™,

The only thing that would make sense in my eyes is to support direct image uploading in the forums. But that would cause even more traffic and generate costs for AGA and so on.

I can do that.  Bandwidth isn't really an issue.

It would make a lot more sense for images to be hosted here, where basically they'd stay until AGS is no longer a thing...

That 22 EUR price for was either false or a pricing error. I've determined costs for the entire project and it looks like it'll come to about $250 AUD/year. I'm going to look into it further after work tonight.

Hosting doesn't cost that much...  You can do it for under a hundred easily.

Regarding alternative domains, I appreciate the offers. I'm going to go with anyway. One of my goals is to have short URLs for images. Admittedly, we could go with something like "", but "" is just so much clearer and two characters shorter.

I'm curious why you think the length of the URL actually matters?  It's not like you need a short URL because it's going to be part of an advertising campaign or something.  If you're posting inline images on a forum no one really needs to ever see the image's URL...  Just because Imgur does it, doesn't mean it's necessary in this use case.

Wow.... a 33 minute download time... That takes me back...

The version of SMF we're currently running doesn't support SSL.  As such, if I turn it on a fair amount of forums functionality (images at very least) will break.  I am planning to do an upgrade when I get the time, but given this is a production environment it's not something I want to do in a rush.

This is being caused by an Apache web server security mod, but I really couldn't work out what was triggering it.  Looks like you guys solved it though, thanks a lot!

Looks fine to me.  Of course someone could take the effort to make it match the style of the main site, but honestly it doesn't seem worth it.

So would this road trip people have mentioned involve renting a car?  Tamara has said she wouldn't mind being a driving slave if she rented.  That, plus Layabout/Grundislav's rental, and the car scotch is planning to bring, would actually give us more than enough space, especially if there's also another roadtrip rental...

Bear in mind of course that "an" Uber/Lyft would actually have to be four.  Same for rentals of course, but I imagine trying to coordinate the arrival of four separate external drivers would be more awkward than being in control of our own transport.

So what do we think?  Does really no one see the need for car rental(s)?

Mods is fine.  He wants to step away from AGS to concentrate on other stuff, and asked me to delete his account to allow a clean break.

Is there a reason this thread is locked, or was it by mistake: ?

Sorry, my fault.  I meant to set the topic sticky, which is the button next to the one for 'lock topic'...

Yeah, I think you're way overthinking it.  A plain text tag would work perfectly well in this limited context.
