I imagine it would take a goodly time to run reformatting scripts on all the scrolls, so the passages (and their text formatting, and their links) all remain legible after "translation" into a newer style.

I can't wait to see a nice favicon, lol. It's the little things that matter to me.

Don't stick your sword into dragons, you just don't know where they've been.
Avoid stepping on halflings. They stick to your boots, will smell awful, and are impossible to scrape off.
Ah, of course. Never play leapfrog with a unicorn.

Good idea. Maybe Dracons input would make Candlekeep 2 a little sooner?

As for the wishes - marking scrolls you have posted in with a little icon...

Wouldn't it be better to provide some sample links to your work and let the webmaster decide from there?

I'll have to discuss this with Alaundo.

For the moment, though, we're happy keeping it between ourselves. I know it can be exhausting waiting for any kind of progress, but do remember that Alaundo's a very busy man. And, ultimately, things can only move forward when he's here. Which is often a rare occurrence. So until that changes, no amount of extra input from other scribes will really make all that much difference.

Having said that, we'll keep you in mind, Dracons, when and if things change.

Sure thing, Matt!

I know that, between myself and Alaundo, we probably feel that we've got "everything" covered. But I'd rather have too many eyes looking things over, than not -- because it's the little things, as Arik noted earlier, that make Candlekeep the special place that it is when compared to most other FR online community sites.

I've noticed that few of my sent PMs have ever been preserved in my PM Outbox, though my Inbox is reliable. My Outbox only contains 3 messages, and they are dated in 2009. But I've sent many PMs since then. I just sent another one a few moments ago!

It's a hassle if I go to a lot of trouble to document and format an outgoing message, and then I want to go back to it later, only to find that it has disappeared.

And I don't really recall which PMs have been replied to, versus which have not, when I can't even recall all of my sent PMs in the first place.

On a brighter note, I haven't run into the dreaded ASP error in six months. That comes as a very welcome relief.

Well, for the past 12 hours I've been unable to connect to the forum, and downforeveryoneorjustme.com listed the forum as being down for everyone.

If it helps, the error information my browser gave me was thus: Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): Unknown error.

Aye. I'll have to apologise for the lengthy outage. Know, however, that we've been working diligently to get things running somewhat smoothly again.

Well met

Apologies to all for the server issues of late. I have reset the topic/reply counts to put the page numbers etc back in sync. Currently, Candlekeep is undergoing a transition between web hosts. This is out of the normal time-slots for such activity (which would normally take place Jan/Feb), but on this occassion, a takeover of the domain server hosts is ongoing. This may explain the outage and issues, although I am still looking into this.

Since yesterday, pages load like snails...Is this true to most? And the ASP error is relentless.

Actually, I haven't had too many problems from my end. It seems to be running quite well.

I've had some random ASP errors, and just a couple minutes ago, I had a handful of threads load just fine, and the rest I was trying to view just endlessly try to load. I had to close those latter pages and relaunch (as in, open to a new window) those threads to get them to open.

Edit: and an ASP 0113 error posting this comment.

That's exactly what I've been doing since the dawn of ASP error.

Hmm, Sage, Big Al, perhaps it's high time to have CK 2.0?

The wheels are certainly in motion. In fact, it looks like we may be getting things started early next year.
