Routing Issues

Oct 19 2011, 03:09 PM

There are some routing issues with our ISP (Verizon Business) that are occurring as of this morning. This started this morning at around 10:00 AM EDT. The official word from our ISP is:

QUOTE
This is a reported routing outage in NJ this morning. It is being worked on. It is intermittent and we are still trying to fix it.

During this time you might experience the inability to connect to the service, while others will be connecting with no problem.

Apologies for the inconvenience though this one is out of our hands. We will let you know once things have been confirmed as stabilized.

Edit: This has now been resolved.

Theme Revamped!

We have a new theme!

After many hours of work, our forum theme and style has been revamped. The white red theme has been updated to version 3.0 with all new images, css, a wider wrap-around site container, and last but not least new logo.

I want to extend a special thanks to GMaster479, Taylor W, Rarez and everyone else who all stuck around during development and assisted with so many aspects of this new theme. Give them a round of applause!

The style is being previewed on the support board first. We want to hear your feedback, and we'll try to fix any problems you discover. For now, the main site is not updated and it's a work-in-progress. We're going to try to have it rolled to the main site as well, but having it here on the support board first makes that project easier.

Some things here have changed as well. The store is now disabled. We felt it served no other purpose except to allow username changes, and that was the only item you could buy. It has been a while since we added the "Change Username" option in "My Controls", so for all name change purposes please use that from now on. To access the member list, you can now do so via the board stats links. For search, you can use the search bar in the header or click the cog icon to go to the advanced search page.

Note: If you are using IE 8, you NEED to upgrade to see the new forum buttons in their intended form, and the search bar. The theme will always be best viewed in Firefox, Chrome, or another webkit based browser.

Rebrand!

With the release of the skin we are going to slowly rebrand the service as simply "Jcink Forum Hosting", or JFH for short. You may still reference it by either name, but in due time we are just dropping it for obvious redundancy reasons. Jcink.com's site itself is being refocused to make the forum hosting its primary service and this was a logical rebrand to go along with that.

This is an exciting update for us and we hope you enjoy it!
