And the default setting for leaving feedback is still 'trade'.

Is there any way to set up a ping notification if someone types @username?

The PM button is the one that says "PM." The quote button is the one with the quotes. :mrgreen:

That's what I love about this place, people are so eager to help! :lol:

Was anybody else getting a socket error last night? SQL or something along those line?

Yes. Couldn't get in for a couple hours, then gave up until morning

It sort of partially fixed itself for a while. I just completed the rest of the fix. Very similar issue to the last time it happened a few weeks ago. I'm going to do some more digging...

BTW, it is helpful for diagnosing a problem if you guys can copy and paste the actual error message when something like this happens. Or paste it into a Notepad file and then share it when the site comes back online. Or send me a message on Realcent like MasterBlaster did this time. (of course that still requires me to be awake and near my phone to get my attention, which I was not this morning :oops: )

We got hacked last night. Our host restored the site early this morning. I'm still finding tables that need to be repaired.

If anyone gets a General Error, PLEASE let me know which table and I'll fix it. Thanks!

A member reported the following to me in a pm, this probably explains it.

Joe,

I'm experiencing some weird errors on the BS website. For instance on the Bitcoins - fad or trend thread I can only access the first 30 pages (same thing if I click on Board Index too), and beyond that it gives me a general error...

SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

Table 'phpbb_sessions' is marked as crashed and should be repaired [1194]

An SQL error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact the Board Administrator if this problem persists.

I also got the "sessions" error this morning and repaired it.

Yes, that's message I got. But only when I clicked certain things. Unfortunately I don't remember what I clicked. Sometimes when I get an error message I'm not sure if it's a BS site issue or just a bad connection thru my VPN... which does cause problems from time to time.

Sure would be nice to have a "back to top of page" button at the bottom right of each page.

Clicking that triangle in the grey circle at the bottom right of each post does not do it for you?
