Pages with a question mark[edit]

None of those pages need to exist because nothing links to them, and in most cases no pages link to the versions of the page that don't have the question mark in the name. Why move them around? --GreyMaria 14:09, 16 October 2008 (EDT)

Forum looks fine here[edit]

What are you still seeing wrong with the forum? It seems to be working perfectly for me. -FunnyMan 14:23, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

I get a "no input file specified" error when trying to go to a bookmarked forum or thread, and a directory listing from the link to the forums from the homepage. Random832 14:26, 29 October 2008 (EDT)
[1] looks good here. I'm guessing you've got an old copy of the DNS entry cached somewhere. [2] should show entries from the 23rd and the 28th if you've got the right DNS info. -FunnyMan 14:37, 29 October 2008 (EDT)
ok, how do I fix that? And why's the old server still showing bay12 stuff, is his account there still active? (maybe he should post a note about the dns issue on the old server if he still has the ability to change it) Random832 14:45, 29 October 2008 (EDT)
As I said on the front page, you don't. It'll fix itself sometime in the next day or two, whenever the old cache expires. You can try visiting it as http://216.97.239.212/, but I've no idea how stable that IP is. -FunnyMan 14:54, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

Thanks; I managed to discover it for myself - if it breaks for me (i've got it in hosts as explained on the main page) I'll do the same process and update it (figure that should be kept on the main page for a couple weeks or however long it takes for DNS changes to propagate) Random832 14:58, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

Give it till the weekend, then just remind people to remove it if they put one in. Everything should be cleared up inside 48 hours. -FunnyMan 15:11, 29 October 2008 (EDT)
