The Case of the Missing Frontpage [SOLVED]

No, not the Microsoft wysiwyg web "design" solution...

Our front page. It's gone!

Is that it? We're now a standalone forum?

Side note - if that's the case, can we get a forum dedicated to old stories? Sometimes I go back and re-read stuff...

    Kind of looks that way. I'm going to guess it's because we don't have anyone writing anymore. I believe the last thing published was about six months ago.

    The "front page" was a bit embarrassing (with it's six-month old lead story) and my future plans for this site didn't include it anyway, so I hastened its demise. I've always hated the duality of forum/front page, and after 12 years, I finally have a decent plan to fix it.

    The articles aren't offline, I just gave control of the index page back to Vanilla. WordPress is still there. Articles all have linked discussions you can search for by title on the forum, and are all in their appropriate categories. I may make a filter for advanced search to set that as a criteria.

    And apparently wants a database update of some kind...

    This. Or just a topic for them. I like to browse.

    I will ask though, what is with the random demotions?

    I messed up the database. When I fixed most folks point totals for the first time in many moons, I also inadvertently removed the point totals of more recent members. I'll get it fixed shortly.

    I step away from the Icrontinent for a month or two, and by the time I come back someone's stolen the front page?! Now I question what else has been removed.

    ...are boners still allowed?

    The helpful button has been replaced with a Real Talk button to make the forum more Detroit.

    See I think we should be able to spend our points on spells that we can cast on each other. I'd love to spend half my points to make all of @primesuspect‌'s words boner for an hour. That would require some wizardry, but a little javascript post processing would do it fine.

    1. Open scratchpad (shift + F4 for firefox users)
    2. Execute this script

      $('a.Username[href$="PirateNinja"]').parents('div[class$=Comment]').find('div[class$=Message]').html("boner boner boner boner boner boner boner boner")
