  1. Ok, the correct ranks should now be showing, based on the group that you are affiliated with. Might be another couple of weeks until the ability to change your group comes along. If you're really desperate, ask an admin to do it for you.
  2. Selectable races is something I'm probably going to have to rewrite the board software a bit for (as I had done with the old software). Unfortunately, my schedule is a little packed at the moment, so I can't guarantee when this is likely to happen, but I'll do my best to implement the feature when I can.
  3. Weird thing

    When you say "IP service", if you just mean her internet provider, then it would be rather odd, but perhaps possible. If you mean that you were using some kind of IP address redirection service, then it's certainly very possible. Anyway, I wouldn't worry too much about it unless you find that you regularly have problems. Feel free to email me if you do.
  4. Weird thing

    When you say that you were using your Aunt's connection, were you also using her computer? These symptoms would be typical if her browser was configured to not allow cookies to be set. This could be in the browser or possibly the effects of some kind of internet security software.
  5. Moving (completed)

    The move is now completed.
  6. Moving (completed)

    Just a quick update that the move should take place sometime tomorrow. Hopefully downtime will be kept to a minimum.
  7. Welcome to Lower Decks v2.0

    No problem. As you've both said, there's not really the demand for it at the moment, but if this changes I'll see what I can do.
  8. Welcome to Lower Decks v2.0

    Well if there's a sufficiently large movement for a change, I'd be happy to do the technical things required to change the colour scheme. However, it's probably best if you don't leave the colour choice up to me! Personally, I'm fairly indifferent about the current colours.
  9. Remember when....

    Some of us still keep to that tradition! <----- I think my fondest memory is all the AIM chats actually (both 1-1 and groups). The trivia quizzes were also a lot of fun. If anybody's feeling nostalgic, you can still trawl through the last generation of the board (though there were many more before that one) here.
  10. YouTube embed in thread posts?

    Ok, I've set this up for you. To embed a video you need to use the new "youtube" tag with the ID of the video, e.g. you type [youtube]puXPozd-kuc[/youtube] to obtain puXPozd-kuc You can get the ID of the video from the URL (web address) in YouTube - it's the bit that follows the "v=". If there's sufficient interest in this, I might look for a way of making it more intuitive (e.g. putting the whole URL between the tags). Any problems, let me know.
  11. YouTube embed in thread posts?

    Hi Digitalfreak. This query has been referred to me and I'll try and look into a secure and safe way of doing it sometime this weekend.
  12. Upcoming Maintenance

    Welcome to our new server!
  13. Upcoming Maintenance

    Starting tomorrow at 5PM CDT, our hosting provider is moving us from one server to another. Consequently, I will be taking the OL offline sometime shortly before this time. Our nameserver records will be updated sometime after the move is complete (this will probably take a few hours) after which it may take upto 48 hours for the new records to become effective, dependent on your geographic location and local policies. See you on the other side!
  14. The map is back

    That would be this one, then? (can't remember if this is the most up-to-date one, but it was the first one I found!)
  15. Help!

    This might seem like an obvious suggestion, but have you checked "Keep cookies until" under Tools->Options->Privacy? This is separate from the option about clearing private data upon exit, and one of the options is "Keep until I close Firefox". I'm assuming that you're running the latest version when I point to this menu option. If not, upgrade and it may solve your problem.
