    Site will be offline for 60 - 120 minutes (give or take) for scheduled maintenance.

    As always, please post here if you encounter problems when we come back online.

    Thanks

    With the new software upgrades, we may see some of those Forbidden errors again. Please let me know if you have any problems posting

    You don't have permission to access /threads/guns-n-girls-possible-mature-content-guns-mandatory.35015/add-reply on this server. I started this thread. Now can't respond in mere text to a post. Me thinks there are bugs in this soup

    I couldn't get the whole site so I didn't know you were upgrading till now. Thanks for all your hard work on keeping this site up to date.

    It might be good to put some type of Title/Heading above the section for quick link/tags on the main page. Looking at it initially it appears to just be a jumble of words and some sort of error. If it had a title/heading above it, that may make better sense to people that are new to the site.
    Just a thought....

    Yes and we expected this - thanks for being the first to gripe, as usual ;)

    We'll track these down over the next couple of days.

    If you run into a Forbidden, you don't have permission type message, please post here with:
    • The approximate time of the error (in EST time)
    • Link to the thread you were attemptimg to post to
    • What you were trying to post (Copy/paste if possible)

    Again, please don't take these errors personally - it's just that the security settings have been reset and the server _thinks_ the text you have entered could be an exploit to the system. After these upgrades, we slowly ease the restrictions to a midpoint between security and usability.

    I don't take things like this personally. I figure if you all were going to ban me you would have no issue letting me know. :D
