I could have sworn there was a topic like this. Oh well.

Shinx skin has been temporarily disabled due to updates. Once I get it redone to how it was, we'll have it back up. I don't think the updates have affected any of the other skins. (It's a particular problem with this skin that the creator is trying to figure out how to fix.)

Just a friendly reminder: Just because I'm busy with school doesn't mean I can't help you with a problem. I know my schedule seems daunting, but if you have an issue you want to talk to me about, I'm there. I am usually on AIM or MSN and I'm usually on Skype, if you have that. If all else fails, you can send me a message here or on Facebook--both get checked multiple times a day, even if I don't post. I also have a Twitter you can message me on, or if you have my phone number, you can text or call me. I really do not mind in the slightest.

If you don't feel comfortable talking to me for whatever reason, Dino and Zeth also have administrative powers. Dino is a global moderator and Zeth is an administrator just like me. If you're having problems, report the post or PM or message me or them directly. We want you to feel comfortable on Mercury Ice. Our job as staff members is to serve you, not the other way around. If we didn't have you, we wouldn't have a site.

Also remember that comments, (constructive) criticisms, suggestions, and questions are always welcome. Again, our job is to serve you, so if you're not happy with something and want that to change (or you are happy and want something to continue), please let us know. We can't serve you if you don't speak up. Thanks all.

It's true. Just because I've a tendency to lurk and shoot people doesn't mean I don't care. I haz feelings too! I promise! There are some issues--such as the reputation issue Dino reported--that I can't fix, but I will do all I can should something arise, just let me know.

Also, my skin is still working. :P

And likewise, I know I don't have quite the same breadth of powers as the admins, but as a mod I can deal with most day to day issues that might affect members, and I'd like to think I'm pretty approachable. No-one ever needs to worry about bothering me, no matter how silly or minor you think a problem may be. I'll always do anything I can to help. And if I can't do anything myself, I can discuss it with the admins.

Shinx is back, with a few changes. If you don't like the new changes, lemme know and I'll be happy to revert back to how it was (now that I know how to do it)!

Our Twitter account is back up and running. It posts new topics and Facebook updates. We're following a couple of our members; if you follow us we'll more than likely follow you. I just have to remember to log in every once in a while to check for that.

I've made adjustments to Dino's skin, as well as the Strawberries and Sparkles and Oi, Skinhead! skins. They should be more consistent now.

There's a new add on. You can now post flv files (as well as some other types, can't remember, not wmv though) that aren't on sites like Youtube and they'll embed. Just use [ jw ] tags, like you would with [ img ].

We shouldn't have any more problems with getting shut down randomly. I dropped and recreated the threadviews table, which seemed to have been causing our problem.

The site software has been updated. You will probably notice a few changes, like for example in the quick reply box I'm currently typing in. If you have any issues, please post them in our Questions/Suggestions forum.

I have had to disable the point market temporarily due to database errors.

The Adult Forums have been opened back up until I get that settled in. We're also looking at whether we're actually going to get any posts in there... If not, there may not be a reason to keep it. It's been moved so it's under the lobby so as to keep it off the main page, and because, like Zeth said to me in IM, "I mean, it IS general discussion, just 'adult.' It's adulterised. *rimshot*"

The Symposium has also been moved back to the Lighthouse.

The arcade has been disabled until further notice, due to vBulletin quarantining the modification for whatever reason.

Site's back up for now. We're hoping to have everything done by Monday at the very latest. Once we're done, the forums should start to move faster. Sorry for the inconvenience, everyone!

Upgrade software and themes. Slowly redoing Shinx since that gets erased every time for some reason.

I'm temporarily forcing everyone to use the Requiem FESS skin while we work out whatever weirded out the skins due to the recent update. Hopefully this will get fixed by tonight.

Yeah me too. XD

It seems to have been a plugin. I've reenabled choice, after disabling it. Please let me know if there are any issues.
