I know this doesn't help, but I'm very irritated for you. As you well know, this has happened to me, too. Of course, and this is the irony for anyone who doesn't already know, you are the one who got through to JonB when I got locked out, and you found him at a time when he was still coming through for us.

Maybe you can get him to come back to clear out those IP addresses; all of them! Or maybe you can try to check in with Corey to see if he can finally give you full admin privileges so that this forum can have a working, and attentive admin again (including FTP access).

  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

After a major ISP outage (yep, somebody actually cut one of the highspeed fiber optic cables feeding the West coast of the US) AND two different router/Fios modems, I finally have a new IP address.

Thank you very much for your generous offer. I may at some point take you up on it.

it is cool  Smiley and you can take me up on that offer any time.

To be blunt about my abilities, or lack thereof as it seems to be, I haven't tried installing YaBB for a while now. So maybe I'll get it right this next time around.

it may not even be a lack of abilities it may just be a small oversight as I have seen many of them i'm just that used to installing yabb I don't even think about it now.

I've got a really busy day and evening coming up, so I may not be able to check in until sometime on Sunday.

Your great support is to be applauded! YaBB is very fortunate to have your help!Smiley

if you need you can set one up on your host and if you have any probs with it I can go over it and see where you are going wrong with it this will then let you fix it and then retest and do that until you feel comfortable installing it with (Linux 'the main probs are CHMOD) and ascii vs binary'.

Thanks for taking the time to do that, Bill. Smiley

I guess we all have our different jobs, and I'm just too wrapped up in the next release right now to worry about anything else. My apologies if it sounded like I was passing the buck or didn't care.

I just sent Corey an email to what I think is a working address for him. He's always been responsive to me in the past, so hopefully he'll be responsive this time around as well.

Given that JonB has evidently abandoned this forum as its only admin, a responsibility that Corey had evidently delegated to him, I suggested to Corey that he give full admin access to Dandello (I referenced this post in Carsten's forum to explain my reasoning).

Let's hope for the best. Smiley

I don't know. To be honest, apart from having the odd moan here and there, as long as I've got something to work on, can knock out bits of code and can have a bit of a giggle with my small circle of 'YaBB friends' then I'm a happy man in my own little bubble.

I'll leave the politics to others. Smiley

So true!

Has anyone tried to contact Corey. This has gone on way too long.

I'm happy to see Dandello posting again! Cool

As for beta testing the new version of YaBB, I'm afraid my ignorance regarding the installation process will keep me from doing that; at least until I can figure it all out again.

I really need a How To Install YaBB for Dummies tutorial. Roll Eyes

Not to take away from all that JonB has done to keep this forum operational, because in fact he alone as its admin actually kept it going for a while, but he deserves to take an official break from his duties ... if he so chooses. After all, he's already chosen to take a voluntary break from YaBB. So ...

At some point I'd like to see Dandello as the head admin with others to be backup admins as needed or desired. Derek made a valid distinction about having an admin account "for testing purposes" only, which of course is a very pragmatic thing to do as he pointed out. My suggestion is to more or less mirror that administrative function here in this forum so that he can use his admin privileges to step in as needed or desired by YaBB's head admin.

I'd actually feel better about it if YaBB team members like xnoddyx and others were given admin access as well. For logistical reasons, only the head admin would actually be "on duty" as it were. At the same time, kind of like how YaBB's moderators at some point seemed to take shifts based on where they lived, it could be very helpful for an admin to be on duty when a quick fix was needed.

I hope I'm making some sense here. After all, this is the 7th paragraph in my post. Roll Eyes

  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!
