Are you posting the entire URL or just the part that supposed to be in the tags?

The entire URL. Are you only supposed to post part of it?

Yes. Just the video's little ID number that comes after the "v=" part.

The BWII Lio Convoy gallery thumbnails past #24 are screwed up. #25 has #26 as a thumbnail, and every subsequent image has a similarly wrong thumbnail.

This is definitely not going to be the first time someone's pointed this out but whenever I post in a new topic that topic doesn't show up in my 'View your posts' until much later. Is this an actual problem or am I doing something wrong?

I'm trying to make a post in the WFC Siege thread that has images, a link, and quoted text, but every time I hit submit, I keep getting sent to a 503 Error page.

I just now made a test post in the thread that has no media, only text, and that post went through, but not the one I'm trying to post. I even tried uploading the images to Imgur to avoid hotlinking, but it still keeps taking me to the following message:

503 Service Unavailable
Seibertron.com is currently experiencing technical issues.
Looks like Kremzeek is at it again! This time he took out Seibertron.com's database! Check back soon to see if it's been brought back online or click here to try to return the homepage.




EDIT: And as can be seen above, this post also has a link in it, so we know that's not a problem. Lemme try adding an image.

EDIT2: Okay, that's working too.


EDIT3: Okay, I got it to work. There was an emoticon in the quoted text that this site didn't recognize.

Not so much a problem, but something that's been bugging me a bit.

I look through the news archives quite a bit in search of answers to questions people here may have. However, more often than not I get flooded with sponsor news, even with the "Exclude news from our sponsors" checked. Is it a case of the feature not working properly, or aren't the items properly tagged?

If anyone has a spare TR Furos, PotP Punch head, CW Dead End, CW Brawl or Swindle, hit me up!

Do you have examples of the keywords you're searching for?

I just did "Jetfire" and "Turtler" and I didn't get any sponsor news.
