Thanks. I've been doing some prep work for the next upgrade of the forum software in the background and this was caught in the mix. Should be fixed now, I believe.
Sorry, MB - just got the same message a minute or two ago trying to upload a jpg file  :(

I'm getting a HTTP 403 error when attempting to award points in the Home Equity Thread.

How many of you are using Windows 10?

Windows 10 just did an update in the last couple of days and has screwed up some of my Google Chrome access.  Perhaps the problem is a MicroSoft initiated one?

LOL!   No sooner had I posted that, I logged off to see another Windows Update being installed.

As much as I wish I could blame Windows 10, it's definitely a server-side issue. Testing now... Seems to work.

it, the MilPoints problem, is still there.

I tried to award points for this post.

But I got this:

          Forbidden

          You don't have permission to access /milpoints/assess.php on this server.

But I could award MilPoints for this one.

 :dunno:


And it's back ... I tried to deduct 300 Milpoints from Kilo_302 (because I'm sure he's trolling in the politics thread, just trying to provoke reactions) but I got this message:

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /milpoints/assess.php on this server.


Edited to add:

I went back and dedected 300 points and added the 5% warning, but with no comments, and it worked ...  :dunno:

I attempted to offer Count 300mp, but the system would not allow it.

Microsoft Edge has problems:

One problem that I have found is the emoticons.  To use them if you are using Edge, you need to copy the link to the emoticon and then type [ img ] before the link, the link [ https://army.ca/forums/Smileys/Armyca/helmetashamed.gif ] and then  [ /img ] after the link to get

It will not accept you simply clicking on the emoticon that you wish to use.

It also has problems with quotes:

It has problems with a post that has a quote within a quote which has an affect that seems to be that "two negatives cancel each other out".  This will leave an affect where when you quote that reply, it will include part of the quoted posts within the reply.

It may be because I am outside of Canada right now and mostly using a VPN but I am getting a lot of "Connection Problems, SMF unable to connect to database" errors. This has been happening the last couple of days.

Same here.

It's a server side issue, nothing to do with VPN usage. We are getting a lot of traffic from unexpected locations, so I am adding a bit more security.

Sorry about the outage... took some drastic steps to lock things down and upgraded a variety of security tools. Please let me know if there are issues.

Changes this morning increased security, but apparently not performance. I will continue to investigate.

Took nearly 4 hours to get in today from overseas. SMP errors or just hanging up at the home page.
