I found a bug in the section of general statistics of the members: the bars that indicate the most popular boards by posts don't follow the counting of posts. They are all disordered and even a section with few posts has a larger bar than another section with much more posts.

Has this always happened or is the fact that the winner of a vote is now in bold a new thing?

It's who you voted for in the poll.

I found a bug in the section of general statistics of the members: the bars that indicate the most popular boards by posts don't follow the counting of posts. They are all disordered and even a section with few posts has a larger bar than another section with much more posts.

I believe that the bar counts your posts compared to who ever has posted in that section and gives you an average compared to them.

Really. Now the bars indicate your posts compared you who to ever has posted in that section, and not more the distribution of your posts between all boards. The bars now are equivalents to the most popular boards by activity. I don't know if I'm being very clearly, but I liked how was before the change.  :-\

Uh, I know I said this before, but it happened again. I tried to quote a message, but it only went to the top of the page and wouldn't let me quote it. Any idea why that happened?

Happen once to me. I just cut off my computer and started over and for some reason it work.

You'll never know why.

It's an error in the browser. Since there is so much new client-side code in the board sometimes small errors like this occur. You can just reload the browser and it should work fine. Or even just open a new window without restarting the browser.

In the "Web 2.0" error more and more code is being run on the user's machine rather than on the server so these things will occur more and more often. But the error is minor and nothing to worry about.

Alright ... finally the site is back to normal. I just installed an additional 1 MB on the server and the site is finally running super-crazy-fast like it should.

And now I can finally get going on the rest! ;D

This whole site was running on 1MB?  Wow!  Talk about efficient.   :P

That is a very rare problem that occurs when the graphics don't load for some reason.

Now that the site is finally running well I am performing some backups and other maintenance items, so you might get an occasional quirk here and there. But overall the site should be running much much faster for everyone.

Seriously, what is the problem you are getting exactly with that error? You should report it on the SMF web site as they are extremely responsive to issues such as that. If they can't figure it out ... no one can.
