Did your Forum dissapear?

Postby STrRedWolf on Mon Jan 17, 2005 2:04 pm

Tried posting, and you got locked out of your comic forum? Did it move to Spacers MIA?

Well, blame the guy who forgot to link to his forum from his comic. We posted almost everywhere that folks need to do that.

Are you that guy? In that case, you need to do this then:

1. Edit your indextemplate.html and link your forum to your comic. IT MUST BE YOUR FORUM. IF IT'S SOMEONE ELSE'S, I'M DENYING YOUR REQUEST.

2. Run an update so the link (which should be clear on your page, folks want to go to it, right?) gets shown.

3. Post your comic's URL here.

Please post over here instead of contacting Kisai or bugging us via IM or email. I got a notify on this, and I'll be checking it.

EDIT: Please DO NOT post "thank you notes" here. Do that in General Discussion. I get emails for every post here!

You need to contact the author of the comic that it refers to and have him link to the forum, and then post here in accordance to the instructions above.

Also, do note that if the comic is no longer hosted on KeenSpace, the forum will be taken away.

I would like to request that The Godly and The Damned forum be retitled, unlocked, and handed over to me, or the forum be left as is until a time which I may get a forum hosted in this community and have the threads transferred from The Godly and The Damned to my forum.

Please. Thank you.

This is the administrator of the comic Umlaut House, username UmlautHouse, requesting that the forum be restored.

The front page:

http://umlauthouse.keenspace.com

I have changed the title heading to "Beating a Dead Comic" for reasons concerning content.

The forum is to be found at:

http://forums.keenspace.com/viewforum.p ... m=220&1041


Thank you.

I'm a bit confused... even if there's nothing wrong with Arcana http://arcana.keenspace.com the forum got locked because of other people not linking their forums in their comics? The author of Arcana is MIA, so if she needs to do something to fix this, that's not going to happen since we can't contact her. What should we do? Can you still unlock the forum?

This does make me upset... I hope everything gets worked out.

Yeah, I know, but I just am making sure I understand what's going on. Come on, person, link your forum to your comic! I miss my Arcana forum!

I checked Arcana and Umlat House. Umlat house has it linked to an alternate page... why it didn't pick up, I don't know.

Arcana uses an IP address instead of forum.keenspace.com.

The owner of the Sprite Show forum on keenspace has also gone MIA. http://spriteshow.keenspace.com Her ID is Terra and she has been gone from here since 2003 according to the posts in that forum, but she has been posting new comics there since October 20004. Now I am the only person posting here in Sprite Show under General Discussion since I joined this community lasty year. What happens now?

OHA is still hosted on keenspace, I just have a .com redirect to make typing the location easier.

The forum is listed at the top of the main page, at the bottom, and in the side bar...just like it's been for quite a long time.

I'm hoping it can be unlocked and we can get this sorted out
here's the url: http://forums.keenspace.com/viewforum.php?forum=681&0

Also, why am i listed in Spacers MiA? I update every week. Now I do use frames and so I don't update my indexttemplate.html thing every week, just the main.html and upload comics. If that's causing a problem of counting me as updating, I can always upload indextemplate.html every week as well...

Just wanna get this sorted out because it's drivin' me nuts

Sprite Show wasn't affected by the lock-and-move. It's fine.

We can host it directly, you know. You can park the domain on our servers and have the DNS served by us. PM me for details on how to kill that redirect.

No, it wasn't that. The scanner was a one-line deal that scanned every HTML file it could find in each account. Aparently, it wasn't very good, but got a majority of the accounts that were removed from the servers (not the ones that didn't update -- no no no, I wasn't looking for those).

I've reactivated your forum and moved it back to KeenSpace comics.

Vile, you missed two key sentences from the first post:

IT MUST BE YOUR FORUM. IF IT'S SOMEONE ELSE'S, I'M DENYING YOUR REQUEST.


Therefore, request denied. However, if you keep your eyes open, Kisai may be looking for some beta testers.
