Wow. This happened nearly a year ago.

I haven't been on for ages :(

Runevillage the forum is pretty well much done. Runevillage the group will eventually die, but as long as we're still friends with each other in the end, it's still a pretty big thought in our heads. Runevillage the family is forever, no matter where we settle down. If absolutely nothing else ever comes of Runevillage in the future, that alone is a pretty damn awesome thought.

Saltwater taffies. They’re delicious, but terrible for your teeth. It may take decades, but the damage will eventually be done.

Plus you have to unwrap each one individually, and the wrapper always rips and sticks to everything. It’s just a headache.

I was thinking about un-globaling this one day. I'm glad I didn't. :laugh:

Nah, I'd say this information remains global announcement-worthy :D

We need to make sure everyone knows about these saltwater taffies.

A big rule of system administration - limit the amount of active admin accounts and prevent escalation of priveleges. Harder to implement than it seems especially when you want to highlight certain users for their positions. Probably better to ceremonially highlight someones role than actually keep their admin privs in place and reduce the global privs to one account, maybe even a ghost account and not visible. The old days of admin accounts being publicly identifiable and used as status symbols are pretty much over especially from if you're coming from an info sec angle.

So this is what the other topic about RV dying was referring to. So quite a bit of history was lost then, huh? Damn.
I'm worried that it won't take much to compromise the forum and everything be gone.
I'm also having issues with images loading. Strange... could have something to do with an extension (uMatrix) interfering with sites manipulating the DOM correctly. Seems like images are loading but not actually displaying yet HTTP requests are actually going through.

*Floorboards creek*

Help, I've fallen through. This place is falling to bits :lmao:
I'm okay, by the way, I survived. Just in case anyone wants to know.

Oh, nothing was really lost here, because I was keeping backups. :) But yeah, for a few hours, David deleted like...most of the forum.

Oh, if they're avatars or signatures or posted images, it's probably just because they're old and the image hosters removed them. Tinypic and Photobucket eventually started locking down and removing things, so anything hosted through those are probably gone. Imgur has been the go-to for a while now.

If you mean forum-based images, I don't think I've encountered that lately. The forum itself still looks like it used to (unless there's an error message on the page, lol).
