I just wanted to toss out a friendly reminder to old and new users alike that the File Bin (located in the side Menu, under the "Forums" option) is always available for use. Remember, it allows much faster uploading and downloading (i.e. these are direct links, as opposed to sites such as Rapidshare). You are welcome to upload as many files as you want, whether they are screenshots of your hack, SPCs, etc. to post on the site. Of course, you are not allowed to post ROMs, porn, etc. there. Same guidelines as posting links on the site, really.
Thanks. I hope to see some more use out of it.
Also, any questions about the site's recent downtime can be posted read about here.
By the way, stop pointing out the SMWiki is down! We know that it's not up anymore, and if you actually looked at the SMWiki backup thread you'd see this link.
Also, the Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup! YES!
To increase security, we've (well, mostly Kieran) created an HTML filter system that removes some HTML tags and attributes that no normal user would need anyway, as well as enforcing proper HTML syntax.
If your layout breaks, you're doing it wrong.
Oh, and in case you didn't notice: C3!
Edit edit: Filter is fixed and back up and running. Some people's layouts screw up because they suck at HTML. No, we won't remove the filter. You'll have to learn how HTML actually works.
So, within the next two days, feel free to post your awesome stuff (and maybe your less awesome stuff too).
Remember, there are awards at stake, so go ahead and post!
Also, to avoid having everything posted at day one and leaving day two boring and uneventful, please flip a coin or something to decide when to post your entry. Unexpected end tag (</param>) at 459, expected </center> Unexpected end tag (</param>) at 510, expected </center> Unexpected end tag (</embed>) at 720, expected </center> Unexpected end tag (</object>) at 729, expected </center>
I won't even bother mentioning when C3 is, because the two gigantic counters should give it away. I more or less wanted to note a few small updates that will be occurring over the next little while - most notably, I will be giving the trophies section a long due overhaul (this should make most of you contest/game winners happy). Not only that, but much like we did with the music section (see the Announcement thread), we will also be doing a clean-out of other sections - most notably, ExGFX and Sprites.
Stay tuned for further news on what will be going down in the next month or so.
We are also proud to announce that the LDC Results are finally in! View the results here.
