I can't enter to the ags web page by this link:  www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk
But it doesn't redirect me to wiki sire as Mite.
I'm being redirected to Johnsen Design's web : http://johnsendesign.com/ since yesterday
Is it some kind of problem with AGS servers?

Sounds like cache issues, try clearing all your cache!

Is it just me, or are the email notifications for PMs not working again?   :confused:

Looks like there's a character encoding issue with pre-change posts. Characters like é end up as the infamous question mark in a diamond.
Fail at Floaty Rog' now!  still having to deal with what games are going through

Yup, we're aware.  Not something we can easily fix at this point though, because the forums database is in frequent use.  We might take them offline for a bit at some point in the future to fix this, but it's not high enough a priority to require it urgently.  As you can see above though, any new posts made show the characters just fine, so if you edit any old post and replace the characters it'll display oroperly.

I remember that this message was longer: http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=46152.msg635963#msg635963

Everything after the second bold tag is missing. I was saying that it worked well and giving thanks so I don't think that a moderator edited it, I guess that it has to do with the migration.

That was caused by your using an extended character (á in this case).  All those characters got corrupted when we changed servers, for some reason, and it's causing any post that contains them not to display properly.  I edited it to replace the weird questionmark character with the correct one, and it all works fine now.

Unless people are actually leaving blank comments on the Games page, I guess there's a problem there.  2 of the 3 most recent comments are not showing up.

There is exactly one blank comment in the database.  No idea why it happened, but as it seems to be a one off, it's not really something I can easily recreate.

Oh yeah.  I set it to cunningly use the picker's up to date forums name, but forgot to convert the data after the server move.  Fixed now!

When a person hasn't worked on any game yet, in the profile, next to "I haven't yet worked on any finished games." is an error message "ERROR CONNECTING TO DATABASE".

It seems awards thread skrood up (my post should be first).
I am not sure it is server related, though.

That's because somebody moved a post that was made before your original post into the thread.  Posts are shown in date order, not a specific chosen order.

The layout for this game's page is broken:
http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/1626

The borders overlap in a strange way.

Some sort of interesting bug that only affected games that had no contributors listed.  Should be fixed now!

The old DemoQuest GIP thread is not accessible.  I was able to locate it using search (link below) but clicking on the link just takes me to the top level of the forum.  Please try to restore, it if possible, long enough to make a snap shot of the info.  Thanks.

[edit]
Well it doesn't even show up in the search results anymore.  It's strange because an earlier thread of the same topic does show up but not the latest one.  I suppose it's lost but just in case the latest version, the one I would like recovered has the following characteristics:

- Update within the last 1-2 years (I think)
- Thread started by user DemoQuest
- First post contained an animated gif image

Thanks in advance for trying.
