Looking good man, looking good..
Obviously he didn't try the "Go Advanced" link.
I agree with RAK and Stuecaster. Here's how well krazdkiller is doing at http://www.sevenforums.com................... BANNED
There is no doubt that he has a "banned" signature. I am an active member of that forum. I can see he has not posted for more than a month, but I cannot see a reason for the ban. Perhaps the offending post was deleted. Odd that he should praise the site, however, after being banned. Very democratic.
I keep getting garbage similar to this:
Sorry. Very little time today. It is a snapshot of searches being made, from around the world, in many different languages. The character set doesn't exist, so you see weird looking characters. Is designed to improve the search relevancy of the post, thereby making it more accessible throughout the Internet. It is working, but there are some draw backs. It now comes to immediate attention that the site is in fact receiving many foreign visitors who may not be able to write or read in English properly, hence a large bounce rate off the site. Whether in a foreign language or not, this indicates people are in fact finding the post, even when its searched on in a foreign language thats outside of character-set.
That makes sense, thanks for explaining the hows and whys. Not sure I see it's usefulness. Perhaps more useful, or at least interesting from a trivia perspective, would be a "hit counter" showing the number of unique IPs that found the page. But even then I'm not sure the count would mean anything and just be a waste of space. I note in that image above you will see just two English words - words NOT entered in to this thread by you or me. That means it is searching on the whole page, including the ads and links, hitting on "keywords" that have nothing to do with the OP's question. In fact, I can see where a large quantity of false hits might hog resources that in the extreme, impact performance or even could deny service. Not sure the benefits outweigh the risks - unless I'm missing something.
Is this in any way associated with this popup, which I have started getting today? It is only on this website, of the 6 I have already visited. Whatever its puprpose, it is worthless, *** two click gets rid of it. View attachment 5763
Ok. Thanks Hayden. But Why only here. Since my previous post, I have been on more sites than I can count, without the popup? Have we got a malicious member?Perhaps it is enroaching via one of the 10 or so external links the site now automatically loads!
I have just clicked on http://windows7forums.com/forum-announcements/38789-windows-7-forums-promotions-giveaways-2.html and got the same screen : I clicked to cancel and the thread opened.
I get the same. No matter what link I click on in the forum.
There was no danger with this popup. It was an administrative error to try to block some file locations from being accessed. The wrong one was blocked and was being called. This problem has been solved. This was not from a third-party, it was just a bug on our end. Also, I can confirm the previous problem has been 100% eliminated as of right now.
The site is already more like an link encyclopedia than a place for forums. Does it really need any more?
Forum looks oright to me - bit slow sometimes from my end but workable
A patch for this has been created and applied to the forums which changes the "salt" of the encrypted password for all user accounts. It is recommended that users change their password, if possible, with the focus primarily being on admins today. We have reinstituted the security rule of being required to change your password every 90 days. This applies to all users, including administrators.
New Style A new style is now available for your viewing pleasure. If you do not like this theme, please switch over to the old format. The unofficial name of this theme is "RAK's Theme".
Looks Good Mike !!
Font to small for my eyes - went to classic 2.2.0.
This is good to know. We will be testing to see if traffic drops off because of this new theme. If that is the case we will probably switch the default back to 2.2.0, but leave this as an optional style for RAK.
