    I honestly started to think this was never gonna make it back.

    Well done, worker bees!

    That said, my favorite forum (SF&F:Films and Television) has been archived?!

    Is this a permanent shut down or a shelving until the busier venues are clicking properly?

    Not as far as I know. The temp boards are a separate board. We'll archive the threads but the PMs and points won't transfer here.

    In the upper right hand corner, click on your username and then 'Alert Preferances' in the list. If any are checked that you don't want checked, uncheck them and save. Hopefully that will fix it.

    ... but that's the thing. This thread doesn't meet any of the Alert Preferences. I posted in it, but other than that:
    - this thread is not a Watched Thread
    - I wasn't quoted until just now, by you
    - nobody "Liked" anything I wrote
    - nobody "Tagged" me
    - this isn't a Profile Post

    so why am I getting alerts about this thread?

    Some stupid xenforo bug won't allow us to create legacy tags for those two.

    Just curious. I was searching for my old posts and apparently the newest were from 2004. Now, I know I posted a lot more in between 2004 and 2012 but none of the posts post-2004 are coming up in the search. Whisky - Tango - Foxtrott? 8-}

    The index is still being built. I believe that it'll be ready within a day or so.

    ^ actually skip that, if I'm writing a post longer than a few lines the script stops working and the webpage stops. Then I have to recover.

    Census and Games only has 4 threads. What happened to the rest? Are they all lost?

    Some forums are being merged. Look here in the Community forum. To see all the Census threads click on the Census tag at the top of the forum

    Note - Arena, Amph, and Senate can be found here as well.

    Click on Preferences and make sure "Automatically watch threads that you create or when you reply..." isn't checked.

    What browser and OS are you using? Is this happening in the quick reply box at the bottom of the thread, or on the main post screen when you click "More Options"?

    New threads can be created as-needed with the Census tag in the Community forum.

    No worries. I find it kind of annoying that preference isn't on the same page as the others.

    in the quick reply box at the bottom of the screen. I'm using internet explorer 9 and Windows 7 for the OS. I want to say it might be on my end but aside of this website I haven't had any issues.

    If Compatibility View is on for this forum in IE9, try turning it off. If it's off, try putting it on. I know other people had problems with long posts and that seemed to help. I haven't seen the issue in Firefox.

    Note that this applies to IE8 users as well.

    Instructions for enabling/disabling it can be found here.

    This has probably been mentioned but the boards in general seem a wee bit slow.

    Grahame (Philip's server guy) is doing some work to get the search job running. That's probably not helping. At some point that job will have to run but it's been failing when Grimby has tried it.
