Re: *BOARD REFRESH* NOV. 2019 UPDATE

The board was updated with a brand new, fresh install recently. This shouldn't affect anything as the database is still alive and kicking and seems to be functioning normally. Likely with some duct tape, Elmer's glue, and spit...but it's still chugging along. As always, I urge you to back up your fi...

Re: Forum Archive

Hi all! I recently had to do a fresh reinstall of the board software due to server changes with our host. I inadvertently lost the archive file with the refresh so I need to go sift through some old file and look for it. I know it's somewhere, but it's likely backed up on an old external hard drive ...

Re: I can't search

I had to dump the entire word search table in the database when we moved, so we're having to rebuild it. It may take some time because of the size of the board.

Re: *BOARD ERRORS - Oct. 29th UPDATE (2nd pg.)- PLEASE READ!

Are you going to be archiving completed fics on roswellfanfic.net/archives site still? Just a thought Sorry, I didn't see this when it was posted. No, we're not archiving fics there. That archive was set up way back when this board was moved from EZBoards (It think that was the name...it was a LONG...

Re: *BOARD ERRORS - April 21st UPDATE - PLEASE READ!*

I'm just glad I could get it all backed up, repaired, and updated without any major losses. You guys don't know how fragile our database is. It's an old and very large database that has gone through several server moves and crashes. Anytime we have problems now, it takes longer and longer because I ...

Re: Pulling fanfics from the internet - your opinions?

Is it a case of just getting too big for their britches? Someone else mentioned (can't remember who) the natural evolution of fandoms. Rosdom certainly went through some crazy times the first few years, and I wonder if publishing had been as easy then as it is now with self-publishing if we would ha...

Re: Pulling fanfics from the internet - your opinions?

This is an interesting topic...I haven't really been involved in other fandom's fanfiction since Roswell, so I had no idea how it all worked elsewhere. I just know I got tired of searching for fics on LiveJournal. I much prefer message boards. :D Anyway, I saw in some Star Trek documentary years ago...

Re: Can't get my head around it! :(

Your stories aren't getting deleted. I just approved the one post that hadn't been approved yet. You still haven't reached your 10 post limit, so until then you might have to wait a bit until a mod or admin can approve them before they appear.

*BOARD REFRESH* NOV. 2019 UPDATE

Hi everyone! I'm sure you've all noticed the repeated errors you've been getting lately. I know it's a pain, but PMing and posting is still working, you just might have to refresh. I can't stress enough that all authors should have their fics backed up on their own computer or somewhere else other t...
