    Oh...yes, that.

    We had some technical difficulties yesterday and I had to turn those popups off because they weren't working correctly. Hoping to get it fixed ASAP.

    Please hurry. I was at a loss for what occurs in the Fan Fiction section without a description.

    Obviously, Fan Fiction is where we write fiction about fans. Ceiling fans. Paper fans. Every kind of fan imaginable.

    Kind of random question, not worth creating a thread here... where are the old archived subforums again? I remember there being one for fantasy & science-fiction books (completely separate from the Amph, and unrelated to Star War Lit) back in 2005-2010, and I was just reminded of it and want to check out the old Harry Potter Book 7 prediction thread there.

    I’ve been having trouble accessing the Forums on my laptop using the Safari and Firefox browsers. Might be a problem with my WiFi but thought I would ask. It keeps saying, the connection has timed out. I have AdblockPlus for Safari and UBlockOrigin on Firefox if that helps

    Guessing a problem with your connection, or a temporary glitch. I use Firefox exclusively with uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger, and have had no issues.

    The old subforum you are looking for would be under the Community Archives. Specifically SF&F: Books and Comics Archives will probably contain the thread you want to revisit:)

    @Force Smuggler It might be a problem with your wifi. Sometimes that happens to me. (Thanks, Xfinity:p).

    You could always try to use the site through a different wifi, such as visiting a public library, to see if you are encountering the same problem there. If you don't run into the same issue, it is probably your wifi being annoying.

    Thank you! So it was Community Archives.

    Is there any way that one old truncated post in particular could still be fixed? Particularly this time capsule post I wrote?

    When does it get truncated? Was it 3,000 characters or 30,000 characters I forget.

    Well see every Saiyan has a power level, and while there are certainly some high levels out there, none are quite as high as Son Goku, whose immense power level infuriated Prince Vegeta, who exclaimed in shock and anger that Goku's power level was over 9000.













    Oh you mean explain truncated. Oh, Grimby can tell you.

    More generally, it can also be used to describe anything that has been cut short:)

    Yeah... it is not a "technical internet coding blah blah blah" word. It is just a word, and it means, "the act of making something shorter or quicker, especially by removing the end of it." If only the internet could be used to look these things up.
