  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: Our first Posting Rule!

  1. Heads up, ForumGarden is going down for a half hour, on the hour

    It's Monday 29th October 2012 at 20:35 GMT+0. In 25 minutes I'm taking the site offline for a half hour. Go and make tea, find a biscuit, do whatever you do with a cat, ring a friend if you've got one. We shall return.

  3. 20th July apology

    The site suffered a major database error yesterday and it has taken a while to bring it back online. I apologize, it caught me at an unfortunate time and Bryn's on his boat with no computer. The cache problem persists and still requires a page reload to see changes during the previous five...

  6. Garden Reboot

    FG will be down for five to ten minutes from 23:30 GMT tonight whilst we reboot the system. This should fix the annoying Error 500 messages that randomly block a post.

  7. Return of the Possible Downtime

    I hope that the title of this thread is not inviting problems after the five days of disaster we went through last time we tried to upgrade the system but ... At about 15:00 BST (GMT+1) tomorrow the system will come down, hopefully for three hours or less, to perform necessary maintenance. ...

  8. Uploading Albums

    Due to the number of spammers we've had recently I've had to pull the ability of members in the "Registered User" pool to upload albums. If any of our regular members are affected by this please contact the backroom staff and we'll set you up. Sorry for the inconvenience but Albums appear to...

  9. Regarding password security

  11. Subscription Changes

    ForumGarden apologizes for the current unavailability of the Subscription system and hopes to have it up and functioning again in the near future. A previously unnoticed glitch of a technical nature (switching to a personal Paypal account instead of a business Paypal account) has caused Paypal to...

  13. Advance notice of scheduled down-time Sunday 15th April 2012 08:00 GMT

    ForumGarden is moving to its fallback server in an attempt to stabilize the system's performance. We've had two outages over the last week and two failed backups, so we're taking action before matters get any worse. At the same time we're removing the ModSecurity "Internal Server Error" which has...

  14. Rebooting the server

    I'm trying to clear an error message, we'll be back in two minutes. Make a coffee. The button gets pressed at 22 minutes past the hour. I bet that line triggers alerts in Homeland Security Webwatch. Hi guys.

  16. ForumGarden ownership

    Ownership of ForumGarden transferred this week to Bryn Mawr who has himself been a member for the last six years and a Moderator for much of that period. Members will perhaps take the opportunity of thanking Tombstone for creating and, for seven years, running the site. Together with Anastrophe...

  17. ForumGarden Moving to a New Server!

    Hi Everyone, As most of you have experienced, the FG server has had an increasing number of "bad days" this last month. After tweaking, reconfiguring, and even recompiling, our load spikes continue into the stratosphere. After almost 4 years of loyal service, our dedicated server is...

  20. Supporting Members Can Now Open / Close Their Own Threads

    Hi All, We talked about this way back when. If you create a new thread and you are a supporting member, you can now close it and/or re-open it when the time is right. This gives you a little more flexibility in case the thread goes awry or off topic. :p
