When visiting trough a proxy (hidemyass.com) he doesn't have any trouble..

What do you think?


I'd have to wonder if DNS propagation simply hasn't reached him yet (to see the new server). They say it can take up to 24/48 hours but it usually happens much faster. He can ping spudfiles.com (google how to do it) and see what IP it results in, should start with 162 where as the old server starts with 174.

Jake,

That is really interesting. I wonder if your browser has SpudFiles cached and now it somehow gives that error because it's trying to load the wrong stuff? Do you have another browser to try? (Example if you use Chrome try Firefox or Internet Explorer). You can also try to clean out your browser cache.

Are you able to get to any URL? Say, website-discussion/ ?

Can anyone else contact people to ensure they can load the page just fine as well? The 404 error means not found... are you getting the funny SpudFiles one that has a server talking to you, or some other generic error? Maybe we could get a screenshot?

Thanks!

Can you do a mass PM? Just send to the entire member list. Title: "The New Spudfiles" body: "Seen it yet? :D "

I sent out to 6 members that I could think of off the top of my head...

Glad to hear you got it working! Thought we had some other kind of crazy troubles...

I'll email the whole forum here when I get a bit more stuff sorted out.

It shows up, but the data is all over the place.

Regarding the ability to basically tag users in a post, while I do agree with wanting it the current modifications available for it are highly unreliable and have been abandoned at the moment. Sorry!

No, it was regarding the request for being able to mention someone in a post and have it PM them about it bringing it to their attention. Reputation System is major and much better supported I'm sure it can work.

I have a complaint.

The new banner shows a picture of a pneumatic spudgun firing incendiary projectiles, which is strictly against the rules. There is no way the taters would be flaming when being fired out of a pneumatic cannon unless the shooter set them on fire intentionally!

:wink: :lol:

This is cool! The new site looks more friendly to new users in my opinion, whereas the old one was pretty utilitarian. I didn't have a problem with the old one either, just saying this one looks "pretty."

I check in here like once or twice a week to see what's up, this came as a pleasant surprise.

Pretty is as pretty does, utilitarian was good as long as the content was decent... though certainly it should be appealing to make it more accessible to newcomers :)

GF, I don't think that's a pneumatic... though the implication is that someone has made a full auto potato launcher, which is pretty aspirational. Also, it's being held by a traditionally square jawed white guy, I'm glad PCGUY didn't go for a politically correct United Colors of Benetton style multi-ethnic/gender group and reflected the vast majority of spudfiles members :D

I am indeed sure of it! It's actually based off one of the cannons posted in the pneumatic showcase a while back!
