Old Fancy-Rats forum question

Post by Nicky » Tue Apr 02, 2013 7:07 pm

Have PMs disappeared on the old forum, please? I used to be able to log in and see them, but unless I'm looking in the wrong place out of unfamiliarity, I can't see my old messages

You're right, I've just logged in and they're nowhere to be seen. My guess is that PMs have been switched off and that means you can't see the old ones.

There was an announcement a while ago - turned off due to spammers.

They shouldn't be gone for good, but there are some issues with security for which solutions are being tested. I've turned the PMs back on for now so that you can access them.

I'm talking to the hosts, they weren't aware of any issue. Are you all just getting a blank white page like me, or does anyone get an error message?

The little picture/ logo next to the website title that is there on e.g. bookmarks and browner tabs. Not all websites have them, but old FR has had a white star on a red/ black background for ages.

While waiting for the old forum to come back to life...
If you're looking for a certain topic on the old forum you can google 'fancy rats forum TOPIC', then click the small pointing down arrow next to the URL (the www address under the main result heading) and click cached. This will bring up a basic version of the site, it's not pretty but it has the information.

You could use a different search engine but they may have a different method of viewing the cached page.
