    Hi guys. The board may experience some downtime this weekend while we do some maintenance. If you're having trouble logging in or staying logged in, try posting from Internet Explorer as other browsers seem to be having issues. I'll announce here when everything is back up and running. If you're still having issues after that, please write to headchickenincharge at gmail so that the board administrators can know about it.

    Thanks, everybody, and have a nice weekend!

    Hi, all. Just an update. I have upgraded the message boards to the latest version of the software and done a little maintenance on corrupted files, but it's not really helping the root issues the site is experiencing at the moment. For the admins out there, the ACP is still not working on anything other than IE. While the log-in redirect problem seems to be fixed, the board still won't keep you logged in if you close the tab or window, so you will have to re-log in on each new visit until this is resolved. I am also aware of the code on the top of the page. It's a debugging script, and I'm using it to pinpoint the errors. Do your best to ignore it for now.

    This is definitely a coding issue, and I'm doing my best to resolve it, but my knowledge is limited. I have reached out to the PHPbb community, and they are giving me advice as I go along. Hopefully, I can avoid extended downtime.

    Note: for those of you reading this who can't keep logged in, clear your cookies, either in general, or just for the snarkychickens site, and then try again.

    Everything should be running normally by this point. Please e-mail the address in the first post if you're having trouble with using the website.

    Some members are experiencing antivirus warnings while visiting the site, so our forum software company is requesting that we take the board down while they investigate. I don't know how long this will take, but for updates, please contact the admin.

    Thank you all SO much for your patience! We should be good to go now. Please be sure to let us know if there are any features not working normally for you or if you see something that looks broken or unusual.
