If you are using IE, try setting the "Tools->Internet Options->Advanced->Play Animations (Under the Multimedia subhead)".

Thanks! That advice worked well for me at least. (And thanks to Dancing Sparrow for asking!)

[] Better notice and server maintenance than to have the site dissappear without a trace for weeks like The Tolkien Forum did!
Yay server maintenance and double yay for notice! []

Boo! server maintenance and double boo for notice! []
These server maintenance thingies always seem to affect us Euro types the most as the maintenance seems to have an uncany knack of occuring when you Yankie types are sound asleep in bed! []
Still, seeing as I've lost web access to MT at work it ain't gonna bother me much anyhow I expect []

I want to get a avatar, but, it says it is unavalible. For several months I have been trying to get it. Why is it that I am unable to?

Please do read the threads in this same forum about the Avatars. From time to time WGW tries to fulfill the request, if you post them in the proper thread.

OK, my host bent me over again this weekend. Seems like every time they do an upgrade, my account gets disabled and doesn't get re-enabled until I call in and raise hell. This time, I couldn't raise anyone over there until 15 minutes ago. Five minutes later we were up. Grrrr.

We're back up, but some senior tech is supposed to look at the situation and get back to me. If I don't get some serious answers and "I'm sorry" vibes, I'm going to be looking for a new host. This annual downtime party is bull.

I went through this when I owned a largish site. I had contracted for a certain amount of storage and bandwidth, which we had nowhere near approached, and we'd get these funky downtimes, and even a loss of the UBB data (which had me really turning various shades of purple). I was told that since we were on a shared server, that our site was too large, yada, yada, yada, even though we had contracted for adequate space and transfer.

They never actually obtained any stability until they anted-up for a dedicated server with expanded RAM. In effect, it was a bait and switch shakedown.

A plague on Webhosts, I always say. I used to have to wait on hold for hours at a time, and then get some idiot...

oh, never mind....

So it seems the problem isn't even anything difficult, just some minor change that doesn't get reset automatically, but noone knows that it needs to be reset manually - until they're told to? []

At least this time we didn't lose a week's worth of posting ...

And it's good to be back.

I know, I feel delighted just to get back in here. Stupid, really its only a forum, after all. Should really take that as a warning not to get too fond of these forums as they might not be here for ever. Though I suppose that these sort of things happened far more frequently in the old days if anyone can remember!

It did seem to happen more at the very beginning, but this host's customer service is getting to be a joke. Good uptime stats are fine, but not being able to get a hold of them for an entire weekend just so they can fix a problem they created and they are unaware of is infuriating.

Seriously, I thought the christian pro-censorship crowd finally talked you into banning me there for a bit.

Hopefully when/if you change hosts all goes well. I have always liked the stability, consistancy, and reliability of this site over the years. []

Isn't it odd how everyone seemed to be worried that the non-access was due to them been denied access, I mean anyone would think that we all had guilty concsiousnessess, that's spelled wrong, isn't it? Ah, well.

.... it was the '403 - forbidden access' message is why, not the the usual '404 - page not found' message.

I forgot to mention...it was in the Prancing Pony. Definitely not the forum where you expect to be unable to delete posts.
