Possible forum interruptions
« on: July 03, 2013, 04:45:34 PM »
The switchover to the new servers is in progress today. Although it should go smoothly, be aware that this could cause some very brief disruptions over the next day or two. We have eyes on the switchover so no need to contact anyone, thanks everyone!

CarcC is moving to a new server.

That is the reason, why the forum is slowly.
Also members are having problems to come online because of the error message:
"The webpage cannot be found".

The switchover happened today; nothing actually happened last week. Hopefully today was the last of the downtime.

The special letters are wrong since the switchover from CarcC:

Accents and board languages

When I like to post something with the German special letters, than all the rest from a post get lost.
I wrote yesterday a PM to Gantry, but all the information was gone. He has become only the half of my PM what I have written...

So that means, I can't show you the letters, because the forum doesn't accept this.

I'll take a look at this later today. Right before I go to work is not the best time to mess around with things. ;)

The links don't work to CarcF.

But this is new. Yesterday the links were working...

example:
this is the correct posted link:
http://maik63.bplaced.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=78&t=314

this is what the change is during the internet (in bold):

http://maik63.bplaced.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=78&t=314

Why does the internet change the link when I click at the correct link?

I am not sure why this is, but indeed I can confirm that on my computer it changes them also. Have you recently changed any of your Carc Central language settings in your profile?

I didn't changed anything in my profile.

The most problem we have:
1. the links to CarcF doesn't work
2. the member HiG (I can't write the complete name) is wrong, because of the not working Umlaute. HiG can't come online here
3. the lost of the rest from a new posting after you use an Umlaut...
4. the lost of the rest from a new PM after you use an Umlaut...
5. all the special symbols doesn't work - not only the German Umlaute.

The next problem:
Before the swichover from CarcC I've got an email if someone send me a PM.
Now I have no emails - why?

Am working on the umlaute issue, will take a few days
it should have no effect on the board continuing to function

One item to remember: please if you can, avoid using characters with accent marks in post titles.

Sweet! Soon I can curse in Swedish again. :)

Although, it is not umlaut (which has to do with phonetics), but rather trema or diaeresis. The
