There is a math question on the first login screen which may have been missed? If it's wrong or skipped it will give an error and take you to the second screen.
Try it again and watch for the math on the top above and to the left of the login name box.

Nope..that's not what's doing it, as I didn't miss that when I just logged in and the same thing is happening..it still redirects me to a second login page.

note all the older posters post count and all the 0 count on the new posters with political cartoons. last week they all said 1, I had commented about the rash of them and all being New members. 

Hmm, I am not sure why that happened. Though, there are some pretty cool new spam filtering systems implemented, which is already catching spammers on here before it ever gets posted. It may be connected.

I will go ahead and investigate, but since it looks like the majority of post counts stayed in tact, I probably won't worry about the possible spam accounts not being right. :)

Sincerely,

I did confirm that was happened after you posted this, and I am not sure why. So, what I did was disable the need for the math on login, but kept it for the registration and a few other things.

I will see how that turns out :)  

Thanks for reporting this! Let me know if you see anything else.

Another observation, in the martial law post. Frrostedmans bold font is now very large for some reason.  2 posts signed by orangetom show him as a guest in the left box.  Posts were from before this change.

I fixed the large font issue. This appeared to be tied in to the code that account used in signature. On the old forum, it ignored the font tag. This time, it used it, and made it big.  Anyhow, let me know if you see any other issue there.

In regards to Orangetom's account, I have no idea what happened here. I see Orangetom just registered a new account. Maybe they can chime in on if they changed anything?

Sincerely,

Please note, in the next few days, I am going to have to bring down the message board one last time. I have decided to upgrade the server, and am trying to get the best quote I can. The traffic to The Black Vault has grown considerably, and I believe my current server also has to be rebuilt anyway (the operating system has to be reinstalled) so I decided if the price is right, I will just build a new server, more powerful, that will help with speed, efficiency and load.

I appreciate everyone's patience. This is why the front page has yet to be updated that the Community is online (still says "Coming soon") because I wanted to just test it with the current members, or those who trickled in. Not ready to open the floodgates (yet).

Thanks again for everyone's support. I know this forum is currently slow, but that will hopefully change shortly. 

Sincerely,

Hi John,

 

Yeah, it seems to work just fine now since you turned it off..thanks.

 

Also, best of luck with the upcoming server move..I'm sure it's all going to be worth the wait. :)

Ok the server has been switched. Frustrated that the speed issue was not fixed for the forum, so that may take a bit of research, though I think I am getting close.

Thanks for your patience, everyone.

Wow I got right in off the home page, no more "coming soon" message, and it is working at full speed it seems.  Did you do something to solve the speed problem, because mine seems to be working at the right speed?
