Add a small sub-forum somewhere for forum technical support or website issues.


1st topic in that subforum I would post
I often use the feature "show unread posts since last visit/epoch"  So I just read whats new.
However, as of the last 2-3 days.  Stuff that was new but I hadn't read yet, I noticed was disappearing(or disappeared all at once) from the list.  

Was something changed recently that may have effected this?


edit:
Also on a slightly different topic.  Is java-gaming.org always only been only a forum, or has it had other website ish(non forum) features/articles/wiki's.  I heard mention of something called The Vault?  or something "new" being added?  Any more news about that?

Did you log in from several computers/browsers? I always noticed issues with it when I logged in from several computers so I only stick to one computer nowadays for the forum.

The website used to be more than a forum but that was years ago. I think there were some discussions around adding more content to the site but it's not really going anywhere Smiley

Also, regarding the suggestion in itself, the site usually works perfectly fine, and on the rare occasions that it doesn't you can always post it in general.

Adding a whole new sub-forum for technical issues seems rather extreme.

The issue with 'last posts' is purely a bug in SMF, and I found it indeed to be related to multiple logins. It's hard to reproduce though.

Regarding the Vault, yes, there is a vault, and a few members of JGO have access to it. What it contains? Backups, for when something happens to me. Emo

About a wiki, or other content... well, the rate at which articles are posted, both in the old wiki, and the current articles/tutorial sub-forums, is quite telling. I don't think it's likely I'll put a lot of effort into it as it's simply not used that much.

Likely future addons: picture-of-the-week, a new theme for mobile devices, ?, profit.

Well you said backups for when something happens to you. So if you die, what would the backups do? Smiley

Obviously with the backups we'll be able to construct a new Riven and restore his memories from the point of the last backup. Pretty self explanatory if you ask me.

If you read carefully, you'll see that I said a few JGO members have access to the backups... so obviously they will be able to reconstruct JGO from scratch when it does down.
