Well no news here, but my guide dissappeared. Went to post it up again for the 7th time and now I can't even do that. Seems a lot of work still needs to be done to keep things on here that are of use to the community and new users looking for support.

This forum needs an administration.

OK, but you have to be able to combat whatever it is that's killing my guides...if you can, then I second the nomination!

I keep getting, "The specidifed URL cannot be found" everytime I try to post my guide back up in the tech guides section.

that's the same one I reported on sat night in the feedback forum, it just appeared (or I just noticed it)... and has yet to be fixed, though I'm pretty sure the admins are aware and testing it from my correspondence in PM's since sat...

Yeah, but it always seems like mine's the only guide dissappearing. What karma have I brought to deserve this? lol

No idea why your guide keeps getting smoked out... I hope AMD is directing someone from fusetalk to check it out, I know it is annoying...

Well i finally managed to get it back. I had to add bits and pieces at a time. Seems it wouldn't accept the whole guide at once. Then I had to remove the direct links to the driver files from the AMD site, so I just put a link to the page. I guess they'll have to figure out the rest from there. But thanks for your help. Hopefully this one stays up...I have confidence!

The most probable explaination is that the section has a topic cleanup time set.
So if the topic is now replied to withing 'n' days, it auto-perishes.

But the rules are that no one replies to the guides, just discuss them in the tech or processor sections. So, it's a "catch-22".

I doubt it perishes, though there is an option to "keep it on top" for X-days... so at the anniversary of this forum reopening, we'll have to go around and set that option back to 365... yep, lot of housekeeping to be done...

Well, on that note...better let everyone know to backup important threads, like in the benchmark and guides section.

Porsche: You just need to write script that uploads a copy of your guide every night at midnight. That way you might actually get ahead of the game.

I suggest a sticky with 'Warning: bugs eat threads'.

Maybe we should just take bets on how long this one will last? My bet is 2 months.

This one will last for a long, long time... (the current thread).
The guide... well... 30 days ?

Oh well, my OC guide finally dissapeared....I've been wondering how long it would take....... it l;asted a lot longer than I expected, and hasn't been affected as much as PorscheRacer's guide...... what a dire situation where a support forum can't even support its own software........!!!!!!

Its a real shame that the forum keeps doing this, surely theres a fix that can be applied, its been happening for quite a while now and the forums support don't seem to be doing aything about it........not even offering any explanation for it to the users who have spent the time and effort preparing the guides to post....

Oh well I guess I'll have to post it again, and see how long it lasts....... thankfully I had made a backup of the original post but this is only a work around to the problem, can't the problem be fixed......????????

Well, you now initiated into the club. I know it's not funny at all, but after seeing this happen to me how many times, I can sigh some relief and now know I'm not just cursed. Sucks though, but that's why I warned everyone to make backups and learn from me. But it blows when the replies or lost, or in my guide, the poll stats are gone. It was nice to know what people are upgrading. So far socket 939 ws leading. Let's hope this one lasts forever!

Somehow I get pictures of monkies eating bananas at a computer with a red warning flashing and they are like...*****? Then the guide disappears, the warning goes away and they are content again.
