That's so weird. It seems to be working fine for me, and downforeveryoneorjustme.com shows it is reachable to the outside world as well. My ISP may be doing something like switching my IP address and possibly the name server hasn't caught the change yet.

When I try to add my scroll, I just get a white page telling me "Please wait... Scroll Add in Progress" and half an hour later it's still showing the same. Well, one fansite less to use for me ...

I don't know if it's the case here, but I've been hearing about people having trouble on other sites when they have non-alphanumeric characters in their scroll names. So perhaps that's your problem too. When you go to your scroll, you see how it changes the apostrophe and space to some code stuff? Try entering that (aka Rockin%27%20On ) as your scroll name instead, maybe it'll work better. And if it does, then something along those lines is probably what's causing the problem with the banner, too. Hopefully hornpipe will be able to fix it without too much trouble once he sees the post.

 

And ack, punctuation is helpful, yes, but spaces after the punctuation is good, too! ><

Yes exactly - apostrophes were not being allowed by the site (dangerous to allow quote characters in strings unless you're careful), yours is the first scroll name I've seen that had them.

 

The problems should now be fixed. You can use this code for your sig image:

In times of heavy traffic the site can get stuck, causing problems adding new scrolls to the site. Also, the new index makes use of a hidden Javascript form submit to get back to the index. If your browser does not support that, I've added a message and button to return manually.

The Leetle Tree strikes again! I had fixed the signature image but not the stats page. It should be counting things properly now.

Dynamic avatars! They work just like the sig image (updates once it is an hour old). Go to your forum control panel, find the Avatar settings, and in the box marked "Enter a URL to an online avatar image" put the following (back up your existing avatar first!):

 

http://greg-kennedy.com/dragcave/avatar/<username>.png

 

I'm pleased to see the cache contains 636 dynamic sig images, which means a lot of people on the forums seem to like them. Once I've done a little more work on the site I'll probably work on making the banners prettier - maybe something with selectable themes, I'm not sure yet.

Oh, very nice! biggrin.gif And I even can add my scroll now! xd.png Thank you!

 

A little catch-up:

The tools page doesn't have that nifty link menu at the top yet. smile.gif

Will you put the avatar thing on the banners page as well? ^^

 

Yes, I know, I'm greedy smile.gif Happy New Year!

Wow! That is neat to fit that all into the avatar! Now I am trying to decide if I want to use that or the other banner! Decisions, decisions!

 

And now you might change the banner? I do hope you will give us the option of keeping it like it is, although I might want to change if it is something I like. Then again, that would require another decision! xd.png

Hey all. I'm upgrading the OS on the server, so the site may go offline for a while tonight. I should have it back online again by tomorrow.

Thanks, hornpipe2,

 

happy to see it's an upgrade and not a problem that's preventing me from getting my EDS fix, lol.

 

I'll check back later in my fansite rounds.

 

Later edit: Eeeeek! Still down?!

Phew!! I was terrified for a while there. Egg Drop Soup has replaced Eggs Will Be Dragons as my absolute favorite fansite. Although I still love EWBD.

 

Thank you for all your hard work; can't wait to see it back up! biggrin.gif

Eh heh... something went bad wrong with the upgrade process, and now my server is in a state of not wanting to connect to the Internet. I'm working to get a reinstall from scratch done ASAP, so please pardon any further delays. I'll let you know as soon as it is available again.
