No he needs to completely shut down. Unplug all cables for 30 seconds. Then reconnect and power on

We're only missing the Normal and Open games while Zorastar fixes the site. Clearly we know his 2 least favorite types now.

They were sacrificed in the name of Marathon Games.
I made a GTKAS. Go shitpost in it if you want. It's very lonely. Or check out Lynch Happy instead. I'm pretty proud of it.

I'm going to try my hand at fixing this over the next hour or so, but then I have somewhere to be. It's possible its still in a bad state until late tonight (Assuming I can properly diagnose and fix the problem).

Edit: Will be fixed late tonight at the earliest.

Should be good now. Some stuff is out of order but zoraster should be able to resolve that at his convenience.

I have no idea what the root cause was and I can't promise it wont happen again. PHP_BB uses the stupidest method I've ever seen to index its forum nesting, and I had to manually calculate values for all of the mafia forums and then run a batch of queries to correct the incorrect values. To give a basic idea of how it works, each forum has 2 numbers associated with it to indicate the bounds of whats inside of it, so 1,2 would mean nothing inside, but 1,4 should have a forum with the bounds 2,3 inside. In some instances here there were things like multiple instances of the exact same couplets (13,20 repeated 3 times). as well as things like 39,21 which doesn't mean anything under the schema used. the left number should always be smaller than the right number. I have to assume some small inaccuracy came to exist at some point, and moving a bunch of forums around made whatever math it does on moves to reindex everything go haywire.

as a computer science expert, i can give a bit more of a detailed explanation. one of the little birds that flies through the tubes to bring the internet to your computer was getting very confused because of some recent redecoration, and so he was taking the wrong path and none of the forum indexes ended up right. we managed to retrain him and he shouldn't be getting lost anymore.

Huge thanks to chamber for stepping in to fix this. I'm slowly rearranging to make sure nothing goes wrong, but the queue is now at its rightful place at the top

i understand that this is a very minor thing and that rearranging things is apparently very difficult, but will the forums ever be put back in the order they used to be? it still messes me up looking at them out of order. it used to
