Thanks for letting my know - can't look at it right now but will make a note and look later tonight.
Got it- thanks HB!

I agree the forum should use HTTPS (as should the blog) however it's running on a somewhat out of date server which is not trivial to implement on.

Stay tuned.

Yeah that's an actual complaint from me as well.

The FOURTHEYE on the right of the phpBB should link to it imo

This might be the right place to ask this: When pressing the "phpBB" button (top left) you used to get redirected to the front page of the forum. Now you get redirected to the front page of fourtheye.net. Is is possible to revert this change?

I changed it due to others requesting the current behaviour. Feel free to argue amongst yourselves to work out how you want it, and when you have a consensus I'll change it.

I'm with Ettan, I don't even want to know the front page exists.

Seems the best solution to this predicament is to make it so that 50% of the clicks go to the home page of the site, 50% go to the main page of the forum, and the remaining 50% slice a baby in half.

Why did the layout all change? Navigating to all the active threads is a pain is there a new way to see active threads in a descending (lol) manner? I liked the old way

I never used active topics, so you need to be a bit more descriptive about what changed. I haven't consciously changed anything, except add a few new sub forums.

Hey Mods. Is it possible to combine the Fear Inoculum & Fear Inoculum (with spoilers) threads together now the album has dropped? Seems kinda redundant to have two threads that are for the same thing, makes it easier to just read what the non fag posters are saying? I'd do it myself but you know.. the whole rigged election thing.

Is fag now an acceptable word these days? Come on Busty...

Point taken though, and I agree

Yeah as Kittaan says it's a call back to Tool_User. He labelled all the OG 4th eye posters as Fags who cant handle a difference of opinion. I took exception to this and labelled him a homophobic fuckwit so yes I am better than that. Is a gag I've been using since coz I've been in disbelief he went there. If upsets the hostest with the mostest that it could offend those that didn't see that, then I'm happy to change it? And thank you re: amalgamation..... Fag!

Two wrongs doesn't make a right. I'm well aware it's a gag, but I'm not ok with it.
