    Haven't had any that I know of. Are you getting to other places on the boards OK? What format is your pic and what size is it?

    Update: problem solved. Evidently just a temporary glitch.

    Yeah, I think it's due to the session cookies used. If you use a different browser you can log into both at the same time. I normally use Firefox here and bring up IE if I need to refer to something there.

    Not big on the list since the temp boards are read-only at this point and are basically for historical purposes.

    It's not even on my list, sorry. I warned everyone they'd only be able to log in for 30 days after it was shut down anyway.

    The issue is that it logs you out of the permanent boards.

    I understand that. But there's really no reason to be logging into the temp boards anymore.

    The issue is that if you look at the temp boards using the boards.theforce.net subdomain at all, you are immediately logged out of these boards. This happens the instant you bring up the temp boards, and it is irrelevant whether or not you log in on the temp boards. Simply loading the temp boards logs you out here. A workaround is to access the temp boards through the alternative gd.theforce.net subdomain (the link on the previous page), which doesn't log you out here, but sometimes a link takes you to the temp boards via the "boards" subdomain, and you end up having to log back in on these boards.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I was not aware of that, probably because I usually open the temp boards in a different browser so I can stay logged into both at the same time. No matter though, the temp boards won't be up much longer, as we'll be moving all of the posts over here and putting them into an archive.

    Not a bad idea.

    I wonder, though, if that archiving will likewise coincide with restoring the truncated posts from before March 2012?

    There is no update on that.

    It's been almost a year, though (more than a year if you factor in when the old boards moved to the temp ones). Is there any sort of ballpark figure at all, or should we just assume the truncated posts won't be restored anytime in the foreseeable future?

    I think I've asked this before, and I think I know the answer too, but is it possible to move threads from the temp boards over here?

    A note on that - You'll be able to view the threads after they are archived here, but they'll be in a read-only forum.

    Any chance of getting additional styles except for Carbon Chamber - Dark/Light?

    Sooo you wouldn't be able to unarchive them?
