Recent Site Changes
#1
As with the Resource sites (where most of this thread was copied and pasted from), I've been spending a good portion of the day today making changes to how the main site interacts with the forum. It should all be transparent on your side but there have definitely been a few hiccups (you may have especially noticed some in the last hour or so). I'm pretty sure I've since fixed most of them but please keep an eye out for anything out of the ordinary and let me know here if you see something happening that shouldn't. Be sure to include what you were doing and the full URL to the page you were on in your report. Thanks!

I'm disappointed this isn't an announcement that we can only use Comic Sans font ;p

Can you please be more specific? What changes did you made to this site?

What do you mean by "making changes to how the main site interacts with the forum"?

I can't really, no. They were all behind the scenes changes at the code level but knowing what they were isn't required for spotting issues. If a page fails to load, especially with a 500 error, there's a good chance these changes were the cause.

Ok, so I just noticed that Psycospacecow has now become a site admin along with a orange colored name. Can somebody explain the difference between a site admin and a "regular" administrator?

I went Super Saiyan.

No, thing is, we're trying to handle the video situation, but the permissions are a little strange so we're trying to work them out at the moment. Not much else to it as far as I'm aware, but I'm sure if that is that's not entirely the case then someone'll correct me.

Site admins have a bit more access to the management side of the actual site but no moderator permissions on the forum. Red admins have full access to everything.

Incorrect in case that wasn't clear. I haven't even watched Fist Of The North Star yet.

It's okay, a majority of people haven't and still say that. Like me for example.

That's because you guys are a bunch of posers (/s). 

But in all seriusness, you are doing yourself a disservice by not watching FOTNS.

But I've already seen the best part, it's like reading Jojo, no need to when all the best parts are in anime form ;^)

So I recently noticed that the "mobile version" option on the bar down below was changed to a "Lite (Archive) Mode". Could you please explain why is that? What happened to the mobile version of the site?

The mobile skin has been completely broken for years and gets worse with every update to the core software. I disabled it the other day to see whether or not people would complain about it disappearing figuring that if there were no (or extremely few) complaints, I could leave it disabled safely. That said, I don’t think I disabled the ability to manually select the skin so it should still work albeit you’ll have to change back manually on the computer.
