No worries, I post over here too wondering whats-up with korg. The information I have is that the korg bbs is being upgraded with the latest and greatest UBB software. Haven't recieved any updates in terms of how its going ... usually a delay like this indicates some kind of problem, not sure though.

well, the site operator rarely informs anyone of us.
I bet he is drinking some vine and kicking back.

that is the biggiest problem on our beloved site, the community has no control over it, whatsoever.

Yeah lonk, feels like that has been the biggest drawback all along.. it's a one man show that affects many. A community that lives more or less without any support or ways of self-preservation... not very good really. There should be at least 2-3 admins with full permissions/access on a forum/site that size.

Here's some status from MCA and Henri:

monday 17 November 2003 12:00

Latest information from webmaster

Because the server KiXtart.org was hosted on went down to many times, we transferred the site to a new server and new co-location.
We also upgraded the bulletinboard to UBBthreads, so it should be faster then ever!

Sorry for the inconvience!

Have fun!

Henri

Sorry, this bulletin board is still unavailable.
The result of some short checks shows:
- different languages can be used for displaying
- shows more information about topics based on your our time offset and with your own skin
- specifies which threads are your favorites and receives email about replies
- receive a daily archive of all posts via your real email address
- a lot of users reports on our site can be created by yourself
Of course it shows also some 'disadvantages'
- way of replying isn't the same
- URL links in your posts are using the old URL layout
- your signature may contain 100 characters
On monday the new server with UBB.Threads 6.3.2 goes online, when this upgrade doesn't show problems.
So, have still some patience.

sunday 16 November 2003 18:00

Sorry, this bulletin board is still unavailable but the webmaster is very busy with the migration to another server and with the upgrade from UBB.Classic to UBB.Threads software.
On monday the new server with UBB.Threads goes online, when this upgrade is going perfectly.
So, have still some patience.

Roc, go into your personal prefs and you can customize your whole "korg" experience now Wink

Go to "My Home" then edit your "Display Preferences"

I changed this:
Which style sheet (skin) do you want to use for your display?
Infopop

and change this too:

TextArea columns?
80

TextArea rows?
25

or whatever turns you on. The other biggy is on the main index page:

View recent messages
Past 24 hours
Past 48 hours
Past 7 days

This is the old "todays active topics"

Hope he has it back up soon, though I prefer stability over quick-fix.

Anyway, I'll be on a vacation til Thanksgiving, thus expect me back full strenght on December 1. I might pop up every once in a while in between.
