  1. @Wiesty Very psyched, of course. I haven't been chiming in lately because my second daughter is going to be born like, tomorrow, and things have been pretty crazy. Please make sure we discuss logistics & schedule before any release date is announced. And if we've got some sort of short trailer, or just a quick audio demo we can play, for the upcoming MAGFest panel.... let's do it
  2. NOTICE: Forums upgraded to IPS 4.1.X (report issues)

    Well, we've upgraded to 4.1.8, and the issue *appears* to be resolved. @MindWanderer, please let me know if you see it happen again!
  3. OverClocked ReMix Design ?'s and Issues

    Many thanks to @Jorito for the amazingly helpful info... turns out it was modsecurity, complaining about any text that included "update" and also had the new "srcset" attribute, which is used for responsive images. I have tweaked the modsec rule to exclude anything that has "src" immediately before "set="... this should fix the problem. Sheesh.
  4. OCR interview suggestions

    It's been awhile Honestly, what we wanna do is get IPS4 fully configured and do interviews on the forum blogs, which allow for nice integrated comments and the like.... Right now they're on the wiki, which is less than ideal, and probably part of the reason we haven't done as many!
  5. TL:DR; version - it'll be fixed, one way or another, but not for a little bit... gimme a couple weeks.
  6. Try clearing browser cache, margin should be better. They're there more for future functionality at the moment.
  7. @Liontamer, @DarkeSword, @The boojum Okay, I've gone ahead and implemented the change... we're now using the IFRAME API... player is displayed by default, no collapsing... e.g. All, please report issues here!
  8. Just chiming in to say I've got full faith in @Brandon Strader to bring this one home & do it right... very psyched to see some great names already popping up!
  9. NOTICE: Forums upgraded to IPS 4.1.X (report issues)

    @MindWanderer Confirmed as an actual bug in IPS 4.1.7. They've released a patch, but they've also announced it'll be fixed in 4.1.8, so I think I might just wait to get the official fix as part of that upgrade, which should drop in a couple weeks.
  10. @The boojum Agreed on all counts; this was deferred to be part of the next major site design update, but it should have simply been backported/implemented in the current design, given the delays. I'll be working on it now.
  11. NOTICE: Forums upgraded to IPS 4.1.X (report issues)

    @Brandon Strader Need timestamps of specific events so I can trace back to the logs, if you get a chance.
  12. Forum messages and e-mails

    @Skrypnyk We have enabled this setting; please confirm it's working properly for you when you get a chance!
  13. OCR01465 - Sonic & Knuckles 'Lover Reef'

    Music isn't always about refining things to sonic perfection.... see The Velvet Underground.... or the entire genre of punk, for that matter Sometimes it's more "of the moment"... as was the case here, imo. I think certain types of arrangements just tend not to even HAPPEN at all when everyone involved is thinking about pristine perfection or whether adding/removing a given element will make a song more appealing to a wider audience... it's not about saying you couldn't have made improvements at the time if you knew then what you know now, if I'm getting @Geoffrey Taucer right... it's more about some of those types of tweaks & that type of finesse ruining the vibe that birthed the arrangement in the first place.
  14. BadAss: Volume 3

    @pu_freak I can confirm that most well-known badasses consider punctuality for the weak & feeble... Would Abobo show up on time? Would Bowser set a calendar reminder so he can leave home and still get there with his customary ten-minute buffer? I think not!
  15. BadAss: Volume 3

    @Brandon Strader Not particularly helpful BA3 should drop in February... we released 1-2 fewer albums in 2015 so we could migrate OFF vBulletin and onto IPB, and then subsequently upgrade IPB to IPS 4.X. So at least the delay has been for a good cause! Don't worry, I'm as psyched to see the trilogy complete as anyone... we appreciate the understanding!
