Welcome Back

First of all. Our apologies for such a prolonged issues with nsane.forums and also nsane.down not being updated.

 

The issue had stemmed due to issues in IPB software that we use as our forums software. As the frontpage, that is, nsane.down, in a certain way, does not work unless the forums do, it was not possible to update the frontpage about it either. The issue with the forums was deep rooted in the forum software, something we had earlier contacted the IPB developers about. While they did fix one of the issue, the issue that prevented the forums from working was not fixed, with them blaming our server rather than the forum software itself.

 

While this issue was there, we were working quite hard to fix it behind the scenes, but it refused to fix, as the forum software's control panel that is specifically made for admins was also broken. Meanwhile, we were giving updates to the users on our Twitter and FB pages - whenever the sites are not working, we try to keep the users updated through our Twitter and FB pages and request everyone to follow them whenever possible.

 

Finally, after days of hard work, we were finally be able to fix this issue. As we believed, the issue was in the forum software itself and not in the server. To fix this issue, we had to first fix the the forum software's control panel for the admins, then we had to fix the forums themes - which was a different issue altogether as the themes were broken too - something we could not fix as we earlier had no access to themes. Then we had to transfer all the users to the fixed theme again. Doing all this brought the nsane.forums and hence also nsane.down back online.

 

Due to this. All the users of the nsane.forums are transferred back to the plain theme the all the additional themes and plugins disabled. Please be patient while be bring the forums to it's original glory again.

 

We again apologize for all the time that has been lost to due to this issues. Something that we understand cannot be brought back. But we assure you, we were not sitting empty handed and were doing all we could possibly do to fix this issue. We ourselves are overjoyed to have this community and the site back. We expect everyone else does it too.

Funny thing that. Some of those comments were funny, but some were cheap. I must mention, we were reading all of them. We preferred not to interfere though, as we thought fixing the site and making announcements was far more important than dealing to individual posts.

 

Having said that, some of those posts, whether positive or the ones criticizing, were quite motivating for us.

 

Meanwhile, please bare with us while we fix the plugins here.

I can hardly express my gratitude - and I was devastated and greatly concerned during its downtime.  This site is far too precious, far too valuable to go down.  Let me know if there is any way I can be service to the forums.

I think the last thing I know is that I'm on one Czech forum moderator and I know with the admin and manage the forum and especially like nsane is really rough although the forum is running on IPB software what is paid forum softeare with him should be support much to level our forum runs on SMF which free forum sofrware and edit it, but so

we have our disagreement with discord  channel  https://discord.gg/xQCemSe for everyone

Thank you for all the hard work

I actually did think about changing the forums software - nothing can be done without Lite's and shought's approval though. Turns out, it's not possible to convert IPB 4.2 - one we use and it's database to another software forums.

Well, I personally feel like I'd lost my money wallet several weeks ago and now it's been handed in and returned to me. :D 

 

We'll done to all those 'back-room boys and girls' :)

I have been checking every day in the hope that my favorite site would be back-and it is! There's a lot going on these days such as Meltdown and Spectre and am anxiously looking forward to getting my tech info fix. Along with everyone else-WELCOME BACK!!!!!

Concerning indeed those security issues are. I'm not sure what impact it's going to have on our servers.

I do not think it should change the forum software I wrote about IPB's support being paid software and there should be support at the level that I thought and for the occasion I wanted to really go to the discord channel because we have long been ignorant here is spiusta super people and there is a lot of superl people for me and or write me to translate it 

THANK YOU...!!!!!!!!!!!! :clap::clap:

I,m very HAPPY...!!!!!!!!! :lol::lol:

See this. Basically it's broken from before the forums had stopped working.

 

 

Anyways, I have enabled everything back and all the basic things except sharecode and other buttons are back to original now. If you guys have any bugs then do let me know about it.

 

Another thing, after the upgrade, I'm seeing a lot of members using big signatures. Please read the Guidelines and use appropriate sizes for signatures here.

Good to see Nsane back online again. I wish all the bugs could be fixed without further delay.

Welcome Back!

I just noticed that PMs are not working....any fix for that?

Holy smokes Nsane reurns. didn't realise how reliant I was on the Front Page software updates until the break. forced me to search elsewhere. Still not found anywhere as good, and thats for regular freeware > Thankfully the links were still working  even if the versions were outdated.sumo just isn't as good as here.Hope all goes well from now on, ni appreciate all the work to get things rolling again. Im typing on my android box so sorry about the poor typing.:lol:

IPB is utter crap. Just checked. New PMs are indeed not working. One can reply to previously made PMs though.

 

Wait a day or so. If it does not get fixed, then we need to contact IPB again.

Indeed, couldn't send a PM...but I'm happy to see this place again :-) Thanx a lot !!!!!!

I send PM to @psyko666  a few minutes after the start of the nasane and write send 

@kasper, you sent a message to a member listed in your recent conversations? I tried to send a PM to a member from the post, and it didn't work...

I hate to spoil these moments of joy, but just noticed the same old problems with RSU updates , if there are already 3 existing replies. RSU system doesn't accept any more. (couldn't wish Happy Birthday to @Skunk1966).   :(

One of the plugins, probably Tapatalk is causing problems. I will wait and see. Till then, no Tapatalk for our members here.

any chance for a follow up of "what u missed" in software updates?

Thank you very much. Thy hard works had proven wonder, well cherished.

good to see you back, but how long ?, the problems are not properly fixed

The issue might of been with Invision, but nsane does use outdated software e.g. PHP 5.6.31.

With the amount of time they've been offline they could of updated to PHP 7, updated MySQL/MariaDB and applied Spectre & Meltdown updates.

 

 

OMG!! OMG!! OMG!! I think I'm gonna pee myself with bliss...welcome back and Happy New Year. You have no idea how much I (we) missed you...the internet is not complete without Nsane. I don't have Twitter or Facebook but I kept checking by searching for news and I had a rough idea of the scale of your problem and how difficult it was to fix. The last update I read was stalled at around 11th Dec I think. I checked every day for the site, I got the front page but always the one dated November...I even checked earlier today and it was still stuck at that date. Now, I just came to check again "just in case" and I find you are back. Well done to you all for your tenacity in fixing the problem...I would have offered my help but you lost me at "First of all..." on the front page 'cos I'm a noob!!! lol.

It's gonna be great to read all the posts from the great guys on here again....too many to list, but we all know who they are. It's so great to have you all back!!!!!!!!!

WELCOMMMMMMMMMMMMMEEEEEEEEEEEE BACKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK ! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
