Welcome to new MyBB Forum for AlienBabelTech

is there anything to put on the main page, other than a contest from 2009.

We can do news feeds and such.

heck, why not some satire articles by steelcrysis. He can reinvent the real story behind news and articles. I mean, anything is better than a contest from 2009 on the main page. ANYTHING!!!!!

Where do you see a contest from 2009 on the main page? The back up was from August 2014 not 2009.

It is up to the Manufacturer or Vendor supplying the hardware for review whether it is kept or has to be returned.

Oh ok. I thought that you always got to keep it, or at least most of the time.

the main page redirect, ( http://alienbabeltech.com/abt/ ) goes here for me:

http://alienbabeltech.com/main/abt-annou...hw-prizes/

also the ALIENBABEL tech:.com logo at the top of the forum redirects you back to the forum instead of the main page. It used to take us to the main page.

Thanks dave

Oh, that is strange on the re-direct. I'll delete it altogether.

The logo at the top will go to the Forum index.

Down at the bottom left you will see a link to AlienBabelTech.com down there that works next to contact us.

Edit: See where it goes now. Should just go to main page.

Can't post a new topic in General Hardware, I get a 403 forbidden error.

Edit: Here's what I'm trying to post: SSDs Aren't Catching On With PC OEMs

This is short-sighted of them.

Tried to post another new topic in General Hardware, got the same 403 forbidden error.

Surprised you guys never noticed you can't copy and paste embedded links.

Was able to post the 2nd topic, the 1st topic still throws 403 forbidden errors at me whenever I try to post it. Strangely, David had no problem posting the link that I'm trying to post in the 1st topic. Even copying his link doesn't work.

Now I can't even post a new topic with this link: http://www.polygon.com/2016/6/23/1202015...kins-valve

Tried again, figured out that it has something to do with the links I'm trying to post.

I copy and paste articles into Notepad and then copy and paste again into the forum.

It is a protection against embedded links which can harbor malware and trojans so it's a good protection.

Oh, OK. But why am I having this issue now?

You must just be running into articles with deep embedded links foe the first time. Change what websites you are getting your source?

Both links are from Neowin.

Do you have an embedded link in the post?

I cannot preview, save as a draft, or post a topic in Video without getting "Error establishing a database connection" whatever that means. If I try those too many times, the site becomes inaccessible for me for roughly 2 hours. What a joke.

I'm just thankful Dave has kept this place running. It's kind of on life support. But at least we still have a community here.

I wonder how hard it would be to create a "new" ABT using WordPress.

Was there a link with embeded links? I just posted a test post and was ok.

I did a cache flush and optimize all tables.

See if you can post.

It was embedded links in the text that was the problem. I put the links in as is and it works: http://alienbabeltech.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=1863
