All right, here we go with NX3. What's new? First off, KBBS now runs SMF2 and it isn't unusably broken. That's great news for anyone who was here yesterday.

Some other stuff related to SMF2:

Warnings now exist as a friendlier b&hammer alternative. At 10% warning that person is unable to post. The warning level decreases by 1% per day, so if you get a maxed-out warning you're effectively shut up for 90 days.

SMF2 has a built-in system that accepts Paypal, ostensibly to allow users to subscribe to higher user ranks. Instead we'll be using that to buy from now on. Eh, it's untested at the moment... next time someone throws me money via that, let me know so I can see how well it works out?

There's now a calendar so you can post fun things and see birthdays and such.

Obviously, the new theme kind of explains itself.

New user rank graphics will be coming shortly, I know they're not working right now.

Anyway, have a ball, KBBS is back :awesome:

I'm just glad it's working, haha.

I forgot to mention, the Paypal system is found in the Profile menu under Paid Subscriptions. The "Send Money" link on each post is , not real money, and I'll reformat it to look more familiar later.

I kind of liked Distortion World KBBS, but yeah, glad you got it figured out.  Sorry DH hasn't gotten back to me.

Well, it's not like this hasn't happened before, but those caused database wipes or the forums were unrecoverable then, so it's not a big deal since everything is currently ok it seems.

Some of us are used to it by now, haha.  Glad things are working again as intended.  Thanks for the update(s).

Indeed, this is hardly the worst that's happened although it took a while to throw everything together XD

I'm just glad it was a server issue and not a hacker since otherwise I wouldn't be sure that this was a functional solution. Got kind of nervous when I saw the forums break repeatedly by themselves, haha.

Its great! I'll probably get a headache from all this white :D

Oh, oh! Can you make something "change colors" thingy, cos i think that if the colors would be reversed, they would be better. Or, I kinda liked the original colors more :D

Uhhh, I could change each of the colors manually and make a second theme out of it? I was thinking about it, but we've got priorities here, I think.

Something like the old theme color??? Red could look better than yellow. Well, your site, you decide and we like, or complain and get used to it. :D

Yeah, I know, it'd just be a huge pain. It might happen anyway, I was considering it.

New user rank graphics are done, BTW.

1 teensie-tiny complaint, ktern: your anarchy originals packs (with the bonus songs) are gone from the shop. I had bought them but didn't download them yet (using a public terminal, time was about to run out, didn't want to end up with broken downloads). Now I can't download them AND I'm out the $ I spent on them. D: :(

The forum's looking good otherwise! :)

Ah, good point. If you were stocking items, please let me know what they were! I can't reimplement them all this second, but either I'll toss you the same thing ASAP, something at least as good, or you'll just get the funds back.

Batch packs are back in the shop. If you lost one... well, uh, the old ones are pretty cheap now, actually, but let me know what it was anyway. Everything's now reusable, so if you have a download error, no problem. If it's consistent, though, try opening the archive with 7zip, and if that still doesn't work, let me know.

The era-4 bonus songs are One-by-One and LOVE*BEAM (Orange Summer Mix). Prepare for more shooting of hearty beams :awesome:

Also, Claiomh Solais is no longer super loud, and Colorful Pastel uses the OST version which is, oddly, 0.7 BPM slower.

Aaaaaaaand completed! Hopefully nothing's missing? Except the batch downloads which people were having trouble with, they'll be back up shortly and more functional.

Apparently they got rid of the db_query function so bank interest actually wasn't working, hopefully this update will solve the problem.

EDIT: Packs should be working now. They operate like the mystery meats of the recent-ish past.

I'm aware of that. Don't you have them by now, anyway?

My internet access has been, shall we say, intermittent this past year.   :(

I tried downloading them earlier, but they seemed to be corrupted:
