Will we get a banner that links to the main news portion again at some point? I dunno if it's a dumb question to ask, but I need to know these things.

Code: [Select]
Who cares about the news portion?
Code tags don't exactly provide the safety from spoilers like they once did.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Yep! That's a very temporary casualty of a problem with the template we're fixing.

The idea is that highlighting the codeblock should reveal the spoiler. I'm going to see about making an onclick though.

I'd like a click option for spoilers, it's impossible to highlight on a phone or tablet...

I believe we're contractually obligated to make it green.

Definitely something we're working on! In general, better mobile responsiveness is in order.

Yeah, you may have missed that topic coming up recently - it's one of the things that made us really want to move on an upgrade.  Any time it sees an apostrophe in both the thread name and the new post, it thinks you're trying to do a SQL attack. :)

I edited the thread names of the commonly used threads that had an apostrophe, but didn't get the Zelda one before.  I updated it now, and you should be good to go.  If anyone runs into any more threads, let me know and I'll fix 'em.

Starting at 5:30 PM EST (UTC-5), the forums will be getting their upgrade. We anticipate this process will take about an hour.

During that time, we cannot guarantee that posts made during the upgrade window will be preserved. So please understand that you post at your own risk!

We should be back up and running by 6:30, if not before. Thanks everyone for understanding!

Default theme for now. We're fixing the actual theme we all know and love. Seems it's a weeeeee bit out of date and that was causing quite a few problems.

Should be back to business soon. For now, this is nice and functional!

Oh my god my eyes love this and want the white theme to stay forever.
