Now Erik, you never said anything about a new, nice looking News bar.

Cuz I didn't change anything on it? :)

Really? Am I that blind that I just now see the News bar fades in/out after how long?

It was always in one big block for me. Today was the first time I've ever seen it do that.

You change your browser or theme lately?

Nope, I've always used Chrome with the same theme.

Odd. It's always been the rotating style for me, but then I've pretty much only used IE.

Also: aurora.pentarch.org redirects to aurora2.pentarch.org

I just tested on latest versions of IE, Safari, Opera, Firefox and Chrome. Chrome is the only one that choked on the news.

The redirect does not work if there's anything after the domain name. If say, you go to http://aurora.pentarch.org/index.php , you'll get a Not Found error.

Also, I'm curious: what's the reason behind the 2 in the domain name? If you were able to redirect aurora.pentarch.org, and the game is not Aurora 2, what exactly would the purpose have been?

Umm don't do that then? ;)

The 2 is because the forums originally used phpBB. The software on the aurora subdomain got compromised and so when I moved to SMF, I put it on a new subdomain to mitigate some of the issues. I also too a fairly hardline on account creation (though I've relaxed that somewhat recently). This all happened circa 2007 I think.

I don't suppose it would be possible and/or worth the time to add a chatbox/instant messaging area to the forum? Seems like it might be useful in the occasional circumstance where someone wants some help figuring something out and both parties (helper and helpee) are online at the same time.

I've thought about it, but there hasn't seemed to be enough interest for it.

The new(ish) reply popups sort of do the job so I guess it's not too important, it was just an idea to throw around.

Though that doesn't really tell you if they are online or not. Just that they've replied since you last were on the site.
