So, the site's been down only for me, for close to 2 days?

I kept getting errors which said there was no server at this url, at all, from Monday evening until now. [through last night c. 11 pm]

I finally log back in this morning-and see that the entire site has been completely redesigned.

And I note plenty of posts made when my browser kept insisting that the server was completely down?

And my avatar is no longer visible.

Annnnd I'm the only one who seems to have noticed all of this?

Yep. Stuff looks the exact same as always for me. Not sure what you're talking about. Had no connection issues the last few days.

Hit refresh a few times. That either fixes it for awhile, or it doesn’t. If it doesn’t, go away and try again later,

This is what the main forum page looks like to me now:

Didn't look like that before today.

Bizarre that the admins are insisting that there has NOT been any sort of redesign. :confused:

I'm the only guy who can do anything with this site and I haven't even been around for the past week. I'm up in Maine with family.

I saw more 503's an hour ago on safari on my iPhone.

And recently a few "File not found" empty responses from firefox on mac.

And now that's where I am as well. I mean, I can navigate around just fine, but I'm unclear as to whether this is what I should be seeing.

The site hasn't changed in like 7 years. we're lazy. The screenshot above looks pretty normal to me

Except that other people are reporting the same issues (someone PM'ed me saying they experienced same), so it likely isn't on my end.

So let me get this straight: some people are saying that their scheme/skin looks like my screenie, others are saying that it doesn't, and that in both cases they haven't changed it years. I don't recall seeing those sideways "G's" before. My avatar setting had been switched to one of those "G's" as well. I cannot find a skin switcher setting in preferences.

If people need a quick way to pull up the skin switcher, and definitely don’t see it on your screen, just press ALT-F4 to enable the drop down.

I did this and it worked fine, but I think I chose the wrong skin. My forum homepage now looks like this:



I've been navigating the site for a few hours now and still haven't figured out how to relax or pursue social outings. Please advise!

We tried to buy that domain back a few years ago and we applied a tertiary dns down the cascade chain. It could still be pointing to the old site but you really shouldn’t be getting that unless your IP address is manifested, which no operating systems really do anymore. What system are you running?

You guys know JDF is trolling, right? Probably a formerly banned member with long standing grudge that’s come back to start shit.

Isn't there some kind of account time limit? Maybe that's why the board was down for him for a couple of days. Nip would know for sure.
After 9 years and 364 days the cookie associated with your account will expire. Most people should get a confirmation email to the email address on record. If anyone has any questions about which email they signed up with, then please PM our site admin @TomRicardo

Is the app bricked now? I’m logged in but can’t see the member only forums, can’t post and unread threads won’t pull up.

I'm really struggling here. I cant get into the app on my android anymore. Maybe once every 2 or 3 days it will allow me in but then it shows no content and error message. I've reset the phone and cleared the cache in the app settings but that isn't helping. should I delete the app and redownload it. I think this has been noted but the tapatalk app won't work with my log in either. I've deleted the account from tapatalk (couple of months ago). I don't really understand much of the lingo in the thread here so could someone dumb it down for me. I have crayons :)

I access SOSH on my iPhone through ‘the’ app almost exclusively. Now there is no way to reply to posts. Was this a special feature to keep me from posting or am I missing something?? Thank you for any help. AKSOXFAN.

I had the same issues with Tapatalk on Android that others reported above. Now on the webpage and aside from losing my avatar, all is good. Need fo find that great gif of William Lee one of the mods brilliantly gave me, but even I should be able to find it again. Also have fewer errors from embedded content, so am sticking with what works.

Haven't been able to access from mobile since i posted in here but I'll check out the backwash thread now that i'm in. Also it wasn't working from app or the web via chrome app.

I GUESS I’LL HAVE TO SINCE IT DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE. Is it a crime that I like it better than using a browser for Cris sakes?
From the backwash thread:

At this time we cannot support the Tapatalk app. I'm not sure if I've been clear enough and I want to make sure that folks' expectations are set because I'd feel bad otherwise. At this moment in time the app is broken. Kaplut. Broken.
So until someone finds the time to figure out how to fix the app we'll just have to use a browser.
