Forums are undergoing a software update to prevent future downtime. It will take a few hours to complete.

The board update itself is complete. Currently the process is rebuilding all the posts (120,000+) and then just implementing some general cleanup. Things that weren't working before are definitely working now, so that's always a good sign! :)

I know part of the problem was due to Server Whatever from a month or so ago, but I also wonder if part of the solution isn't applicable to Studios as well, which has been suffering outages for no reason they can figure (i.e., it's not high server load.)

I see the posts, and everything is great(except that it doesn't seem to be complete, as there hasn't been a formal announcement yet) - but the skin is horrible, horrible, horrible. The font burns my eyes, and skin selector is disabled. Meh.

For me, the panel on the left disappeared, the font in posts is too big, but the font on the links("The Gibberlings Three Forums > General Discussion > G3 News and Announcements") is incredibly small; "Delete cookies set by this board Mark all posts as read" lines are barely visible.

I have the same problem.

Plus, the 'Forum Options' and 'Page Number' navigation buttons don't seem work for me.

No old skin support, I am afraid - support for just the G3 2.3.5 one and the lo-fi version. If you refresh the page and/or set the skin to that, you should be fine.

Since Cam did the forum update, and since it doesn't look as if he's been reading PPG lately, you'll probably have more luck objecting at G3.

As I understand it the disappearence of skins (whatever they are, he says displaying his vast web literacy) is that they're too much work to maintain.

Their forum is broken. Skins issues as mentioned and it doesn't keep me logged in even though I click the box to remember me.

My eyes hurt. Ohhh... jcompton said it best, probably.

I'm guessing even forum skins can have STD's. Might be a consequence of Borderline skin romantic encounter.

CamDawg's hard work to design and build the G3 skin and make it work, CamDawg's site, and CamDawg's decision on what to support and what not to support - I think probably if you want another skin enabled, you can PM him and ask, but the only skin available, enabled,  updated, and working is the standard G3 skin he built. (Hey - or jcompton could build an alternate skin for PPG, enable more than the default on his site and forums, and share the data with CamDawg - but unfortunately, that would mean CamDawg has to support it  - so really that doesn't help CamDawg either).

If you use the older skins by keeping cache data, you will get increasing numbers of errors due to changes with the site host, increasing font issues, and missing data.

Invision has a default skin. Stop me if this sounds crazy, but I presume the Invision default skin is updated and works with the latest version of Invision.

I have no idea what you are trying to say here.

I think what he's trying to say is "it is what it is". Most forums don't give you a choice of skins, and Cam indicated that it was a lot of work to maintain/update the skins whenever there was a change to the forum. I think the big problem here is that this is something new and people haven't adjusted to it yet. That's my two cents worth anyway.

Whats so hard about getting other skins? That white is blinding. All you have to do is upload the the skins files and enable it in your boards configuration settings. Or does Invision make it more difficult?

I had Internal Server Error 500 today; it's IPS now, yeah. Well, too bad for RE v4, I guess - too good for lazy me. :)

Oddly, G3 has been working just fine for me.

Unless it only looks that way, and I need to find myself a red pill.
