    Nice to see the forum back up..

    I'm glad everything was sorted out, it's nice to be back here browsing about and keeping updated on the status/development of the VBA-M project. I've been using VBA GX on my Wii and wanted to give props or congratulations on the quite solid and great releases.

    Thanks. Colors for Smods and Admins look much better on the eyes now and easier to read.

    Don't ask me why I posted this there, but I moved it to an appropriate section.

    When I received a PM, I couldn't read the text as it is quite invisible unless you highlight it. I have attached a screen shot to illustrate what I am referring to: [attachment=134]

    Is it just me

    I haven't been that active because of college, being behind on my work and worrying whether or not I'll pass this semester and royally fuxxor my financial aid opportunity once again with, and having to pay back a $6,000+ loan. So I have just been randomly lurking at Ngemu every so often when I get a chance and a couple other forums.

    Shared hosting sucks bawlz....

    I would go dedicated, however it is expensive as hell for dedicated hosting. But what I am trying to find out is how much more would a tracker eat up compared to a forum script like Vbulletin, IPB or Mybb? While I understand that some hosts may worry about legal issues, I am unsure if this is the reason behind the decision or if it's resource related. I apologize for posting such a thread, I didn't feel comfortable posting it at Ngemu or other emulation networks, and if traffic/activity was better at my forum I would of rather posted it there. It's probably no big deal anyways and I'm worried for nothing, I just don't want to cause any conflicts by posting something like this here.:banana_cool:

    Shared hosting sucks bawlz....

    So I got into a small argument on my hosts forum about setting up a torrent tracker for legal/open source files. So I was told that the TOS prohibited it, so unsure as to why I asked for an explanation. No one was able to provide an explanation and told me to submit a ticket. I find support tickets a waste of time, as most of the time you are issued a spoonfed or general scripted response. Only time tickets are really useful is if you get you're account hijacked. I still have a few unresolved issues on my account that support failed to fix despite me providing an in depth technical description of the exact problem I was experiencing. My account went sour when I performed a full directory backup, modified the backup by adding some files to it, then tried to upload it. When I uploaded it, I got a time out error and botched my account. Luckily I was able to get everything back to semi working again. Since then I am unable to run cron jobs properly, empty my trash in Cpanel, change my Cpanel password, access some features of Cpanel and get errors when logging into my mail in Cpanel. Despite explaining this in depth to their support team, filling several tickets, the issue still is not completely resolved. Although that has nothing to do with the original subject of this thread. I don't understand why the disallow the use of trackers, it's not like torrents are illegal, in fact they are quite legal as long as you don't share any copyrighted or illegal material. I have seen things about possible resource issues before, but I honestly can not see how a simple PHP tracker script can cause any resource issues compared to a PHP/MySQL forum script. Bandwidth is essentially a non-issue since bandwidth mostly comes from peers internet connection and not the server itself. Anyway sorry for the rambling, I am just quite confused on this whole thing, I hope this topic won't cause any trouble being posted here and am sorry if it isn't allowed.

    MyBB 1.4

    Hey Squall, just in case you haven't hit up the official Mybb forums in the past day or two, Mybb 1.4.1 has been released which should fix a lot of the bugs that were occurring on the gold Mybb 1.4 release.

    MyBB 1.4

    Mybb 1.4 is awesome, I am awaiting for some plugins to be updated for my forum. I like the new ModCP and AdminCP, looks a lot better than before and closer to IPB's tabbed admin interface. I just hope and pray Mybb doesn't take the commercial route like IPB did who once preached their forum software would remain free only to disappoint and go completely commercial later on.:angry:

    If JKKDARK was in the next room of your house...

    I'd put on my anti-aids/jkkdark suit and proceed to remove you from my house because I'd have no idea WTF you were.:fight:

    Not really sure where to put this, buuuuuuut...

    Yes this is more fitting in the support section. Moved.

    Super Moderators

    I agree as well, HCR should be given a chance as a staff member. He's an administrator on my forum (Although my forum is down atm) and has been extremely helpful and providing useful suggestions to improve my website and moderating the forum. He's also good at moderating forums from what I've seen in the past, so I am willing to agree on him being a part of the staff here at the VBA-M forums. That is if you still need help here and have any available spots to be filled for moderators/super moderators.
