I don't remember the status of the quote in the chatbox pre-update, but right now instead of |Quote| it's just |X| making it seem like you can delete the post. Clicking upon the link adds the person's name with bold tags instead of a quote of their comment.

Did it ever quote them? I don't use the chatbox that often, but I know there were a few functions that didn't work correctly before anyway.

I was just having more of those Error 500 messages popping up, and then for maybe a half an hour the site wouldn't load at all.

Mike, that's not good news. I'm not sure if that's the same problem as when we last had the Errors 500 or not - the database for the forum is externally hosted now, where I have more control over it, but it could also be causing the problems. I'm looking into moving the entire thing in the new year, but I need time to investigate the hosting requirements so it won't be immediate, I'm afraid.

That's just back to the old behaviour. I'll look at fixing it for good in the future; during the update I may have actually found the bit of code that was causing trouble for me.

I got a MySQL error at one point, right before the site stopped loading entirely. I meant to screenshot it, but forgot, and when I checked the site again, that's when it just wasn't loading at all for me. I will be sure to get a screenshot if it happens again, though.

Thanks. Although obviously, here's hoping it just doesn't happen again :P

...yup. I think that's an issue with connecting to my server, 'pon which the database resides right now. I'm looking into moving us over to a VPS server (which would be overkill if I didn't run another website, and even then it should leave us with bandwidth to spare), but nothing's definite. If I don't know more about that very soon I'll see if I can't get the old database restored.

It's not a huge deal, since it's only happened to me twice, but I figured I should go ahead and post it so you knew what happened. I'm not sure what kind of access you have to error reports when the site does something funky.
