I may just have problems on my end, but I'm so excited that the forums are running along side the main art site! Hello world!

Don't like it. The removal of the block feature is a kick in the teeth. There are (or were) sexual predators here and just all around insufferable people that I cut out like the cancer they are (or were). Bring it back.

Good to see the forums are back up though, useful way to kill time.

Oof.
I didn't even notice this! Good catch!

The replacement Ignore feature is a bit less scorched-earth (people can't use it to cover their tracks anymore, for example, and there's no more "Look into thread, half the users seem to be randomly shouting at wall" incidents as you can always de-hide posts)... but that swings both ways.

Oof. I also glazed over that as well. For a moment there I didn't see the ignore button.
Thanks for filling me in!

Yikes. Definitely report them. Also, given you used the term predator, if you are a minor you should not only report them here but report them to the FBI or proper authorities. I am fairly certain there are forms for reporting preditory behavior towards children online. If you still have notes from them and such that would be useful to send in. It would be important so other minors can't continue to get hurt. Either way of course I am extremely sorry that you were treated that way.

-edit- Mythic posted some useful links bellow if you need them.

Here is the website, and also a safety guide in case others read this and need help too.

 
Do enjoy seeing the forum got an update visually as it needed it badly. Was wondering when it would come back online since I don't browse as many forums nowadays.

Someone should explain me why you blocked me at all. Me being a sexual predator DUE TO ME BEING FROM A PARTICULAR COUNTRY? Or your own mental illness?

If you're wondering why the forums went offline early and took so long to get back up this was the status of Novastorm (RIP) shortly before we migrated our hardware over. We were able to recover the data, thankfully, but unfortunately it caused a few problems which made bringing the forums back online longer than initially anticipated. Moving the entire site cross country was a task in and of itself, and this just added to the work log.

The good news is we're on brand spankin' new hardware (thanks to our beneficial IMVU overlords!).

I'm glad the Atari is plugged in again, and still running. Thanks!

Oof! I'm glad that's sorted now
you guys could have at least kept us updated or told us why the site was down though :/

Hello, Proto

Wouldn't have made it go any faster.
Also to publicly say that you've got physical drives in transit across the country is a little on the dangerous side. js
