Well it was a harrowing ordeal for a few days. I felt rudderless in life. All is better now that I figured out how to log on to the rebooted site.

I should add, from the outside it looks as if the board is empty and doesn't exist. It's not until you validate the registration that stuff shows up. THat might daunt some genuine users form coming in/coming back. Is there a way to put some content out there to guests that shows the site still exists?

Glad you found your way back.

As for how the board looks to guests, that's a good question. I don't know. Mark has to weigh in on that. But, we're never going to get any new members if they can't see the board content prior to joining.

Maybe Mark did that on purpose so guests can't see you pooping in the punch bowl.

Mrs psu_dad: Was that necessary?
Me: What dd I do now?

No, not intentional at all. If you saw the administration panel for this thing, you'd see how stupidly complex it is to get it configured correctly. I'll poke around a bit to see if I can't make it visible for guests too.

Also, aside from the Recruiting section do you guys remember what other sections we had (or if they're necessary?)

The only sections we really used were Free For All, Recruiting and Locker Room. Even the ticket exchange stuff was rarely used. The other sections just became refuge for spammers. 99% of what ended up there was spam.

Selfishly (because I do most of the clean up), I'd prefer you keep it to 3, maybe 4, sections.

Free For All
Recruiting
Locker Room
Ticket Sales

That should do 'er.

I'd like a fifth section that Blue&White isn't permitted to administrate. It will be Darwinian in nature. Please use any of the following titles:

1. Why we hate Blue&White: A dissertation on censorship in our time.
2. Welcome to the Thunderdome
3. Galapagos Islands
4. Pooping in the Punchbowl
5. Mmmm, this Punch Tastes Weird
6. 2016 Election . . . Russian Bots Welcome

8. Are you talking to me?

I'm not even sure exactly how long I couldn't see anything, but it is damn awesome to be back on this site. Thanks to Mark for his hard work and perseverance. Looking forward to PSU football in 10 days!
