  1. The forum was migrated to new hosting a few weeks ago. It's likely a result of that so I'll look into it.
  2. But you can roll it in glitter.
  3. I wouldn't wipe my arse with your chatlog.
  4. I can't reproduce this. What browser are you using? Are you using any addons? Is this a troll? No, really, is this a troll?
  5. Put up with it. I'll look into it.
  6. Believe it or not, there actually is.
  7. I just checked Sky and it does use third party advertising, so it's possible it is Sky serving up the malicious ads. In the absence of any browsing history on which to base the advertising, which you won't have if you clean your browser history regularly, it'll serve up a random ad, and this is the most likely vector for an attack. Those served ads based on browsing history are less likely to see such an problem as the ads will more likely be clean based on something expected. (For example, on Chrome I see ads from Amazon and my bank but on Edge, which I don't use and therefore has no history, I see one for a betting shop.)
  8. The website has been upgraded and we're now on software that officially supports PHP 7, which we're now using, that should result in some performance gains. As we're using a new PHP version and there's been an upgrade, please report any bugs in this thread.
  9. Does the Sky website embed any third party advertisements? If so, it's possible it's one of these that's doing the redirect, maliciously and without Sky's knowledge.
  10. The donation module doesn't allow guest donations, to keep within the terms of our free TS licence. Now that you've got an approved post it should let you donate.
  11. The mourning of the Dick.
  12. Nope. We'll start planning our approach to this title in the coming days and weeks, but we definitely don't have answers yet. We'll be looking at our options, in terms of the number and size of servers we can afford to support, and whether we support one or both titles. (They're different enough that we might very well be able to support both enduring.) What we need is stability of donations and we recently had a funding problem, but we seem to be well over that now. The main deciding factor is on where VIVA play. It's not enough that a server is popular, it has to be popular amongst VIVA members. That's why Silk Road was eventually killed. Popular as it was, it served a significant minority.
