Currently, instant ad-removal paypal payments aren't functioning. There is an issue that we were made aware of today regarding an ad removal payment that fell through. We're working to resolve this, but in the meantime, you can still pay for ad removal and it will be processed manually.
It is not apparent why they are not being processed, but nonetheless:
- If you submit an ad removal payment, you will be manually credited for the views your purchased
- If you purchased ad removal today, you can ask for a credit to your board if you did not get the views.
Thanks and apologies for the inconvenience. We'll repair the automated ad removal system as soon as possible.
Happy Thanksgiving 2013 to everyone from Jcink.com!
Have a great day!
Our mail server has been brought back online, we apologize for the delay. You should be getting notifications of new posts, personal messages, password recovery, and other associated emails again.
Any mail from around Nov 22nd - Nov 24th was not processed during the time that the mail server was taken offline.
Email should be delivering as usual again and service should be completely normal as of this post. We apologize for the shaky week and have taken measures to ensure greater stability in the future to prevent us from the attacks we suffered on the 18th-21st.
Let us know if you have any problems
We're aware of recent service issues in the past day or so and we're working on it.
It's related to DDoS attacks - just a new type of attack vector against the server.
We're working on patching this issue up and it should be resolved by the end of the day today.
Thanks for your patience as always in these times
Skin & Code Re-locations
We are currently in the process of moving the skins, and codes over that meet Administrator approval to the Official Resource Forum.
This is being done in preparation to close down the skins and coding submission areas on this forum and to turn them into redirects to the areas on that forum for them. We are currently marking topics to be moved, as well as beginning moving codes over, if you have an account on that forum and we move your work we are posting it under your account using the sub-accounts modification for Administrators.
If you do not have an account thought it is being posted under mine, and still listed as being originally created by you, and you can register and PM me with the links to your work to have it edited and placed under your account.
You may also move and submit the skins or codes you have created yourself, this process will be completed in one week, meaning after that those forums will be made re-directs and no longer will be accessible.
If anyone has any questions about this then please feel free to contact me or Jcink or post here with those questions.
Dark Skins - Importer, Default, & AdminCP
Today we are proud to announce and release a new Dark Default skin for this forum as well as our Resource Forum
In addition to this we have taken the dark skin I originally created for the Resource Forum and have converted it into a Jcink forum Hosting Default Dark, which at this time has been placed into the Skin Importer for use. As well as an AdminCP Dark version that Jcink converted from the original dark version made.
To use the new default skin you can select it by going into the AdminCP of your board and going into Skins & Templates > Import Skins, and select Jcink Forum Hosting Default from that list to import, you can also preview the skin here.
To use the new AdminCP skin simply log into your AdminCP and select it from the drop down in the lower right hand corner of the menu there.
We hope everyone enjoys the new skins.
Today some skins in the importer are unfortunately being removed.
The original author has removed the files and in some cases replaced core elements with a redirect script that would make it appear as if the board was closed by JFH staff.
This is obviously a false alarm. If you're experiencing this problem on a board that isn't closed, you may need to clear your browser cache.
We don't recommend keeping the skins added to your forum. The ones that have been pulled down are all based on Shift by one of our former staff members, Gunblaza.
If you need any assistance whatsoever with fixing your skin or installing/tweaking/modifying shift, please feel free to see these sections.
Going forward, we are definitely going to have more stringent rules for hosted content in our importer so incidents like this cannot occur again. Users should not be able to be affected because an author deletes all of their content.
Thanks and apologies for the inconvenience.
After evaluating the usefulness of having areas for codes, skins, themes, etc. on both this forum and the Official Resource Forum it has been decided to turn the forums here that have been previously used for this purpose into archives.
They can still be viewed and all of the topics will remain in their present condition, however they will no longer be able to be posted in, and topics will not be replied to. For those wishing to move their things and set them up in the corresponding areas of the resource forum you can do so by using the link above, and we encourage you to do so and provide further support for your codes, modifications, skins, etc. there.
A huge thank you to all of those who have contributed to these areas in the past and whom continue to and plan on continuing to further on the new forum. Your work is always appreciated and we thank you for taking your time to create these wonderful things to share with other users of the service.
Today we are proud to finally open to everyone our Official Resource Forum for the entirety of the Jcink Forum Hosting users, from Administrators and Moderators right on down to members wishing to join in and have fun as well as possibly win something for their favorite forums.
All of the resources, skins, coding, modifications, etc. on this forum will be created by the JFH users and staff and be optimized for use on all JFH forums. Taking the guess work out of your skinning, you won't have to pull up a modification code then edit it to work on JFH, or even go through a trial and error for days just to see if it even works. All of these resources will be checked and proven to work on JFH forums before being accepted taking all of that guess work and mess out of the equation for all users.
Some of the items to be featured on Jcink Forum Hosting Resources will include:
- Forum Directory (No post count, no button requirement.)
- Skin Galleries
- Coding Galleries
- Graphic Galleries
- Template Galleries
- Complete Graphic Resource & Request Areas
- Review & Critique Centers (Not only for forums.)
- Documentation & Tutorials Areas
- Forum Administration & User Guides
- Challenge Centers (Will win advertising spots on the sidebar.)
- Monthly Challenges (Details below.)
- So much more!
This forum has taken a lot of time to plan, build, modify, execute, and has even involved minor modifications to existing features to optimize it and all of the users experiences on it. so we are very excited to open this now to all and cannot wait to see everyone there.
Today we have released a major extension and upgrade to the sub-accounts feature, a multiple account management mod that we coded customized specifically for our service.
With sub-accounts, you can link other accounts to a primary one for easy access and management via switch capability. But now, you don't have to switch out to perform posting certain tasks.
Effective now, if you have sub accounts enabled (you don't need to do anything!):
- Post a new topic/reply as a sub account of your choice from ANY of your sub accounts within a family.
- Edit any post within your sub account family (e.g. sub1 and sub2 are part of the same tree, sub2 can edit posts by sub1)
- Board Administrators have a special option to "Enter username..." where they can edit or change any post's author to something else, or post as anyone. This action is cleanly logged in the Admin CP. Other users do not have this ability.
Further details on functionality:
- Drop down menu when making a new topic / reply with sub account options to post as when logged in under parent.
- Drop down menu when logged in while editing a post under a parent account with options to change the account it was posted under
- Correctly increases postcount of chosen account during posting.
- Updates last post and activity time in profiles so the account shows up on the logged in today list and stays an 'active' account in the system without ever having to log-in.
- Edit posts of your sub accounts from another account in your family.
- Changing out a poster when editing it decreases postcount and adds to the postcount of the swapped user if postcount is enabled for the forum.
- Proper permissions checking is done - users cannot post as other accounts where respective read/reply/start are not allowed.
- Fast reply support
- Mobile mode supported with all of the above!
Thanks to everyone who helped beta test this in our development forum. We realize there could still be bugs; if you notice any issues or have any suggestions or comments, please report them to us. The development topic is here and remains open to report bugs or problems.
