  2. All, the issue has been addressed. A security issue was found in the software used to display advertising. This unfortunately was able to inject code into users browsers for a few hours today. My deepest apologies to anyone impacted by this. Please be assured the AVSIM servers were not compromised and no user data was ever available. While this obviously unacceptable the software was completely isolated and nothing outside it was impacted. Thanks Brian
  3. What are you seeing? There doesn't appear to be anything wrong on our end
  4. Thanks Ron, it should be working again now, sorry for the issue Brian
  5. The issue you pointed out has been fixed, it was displaying the wrong count of found downloads.
  6. Let me reiterate something I said earlier. The total number of posts is exactly the same before and after the upgrade. The difference is post that were intentionally deleted a long time ago. An example is a forum that was completely removed along with all it's posts. Put simply nothing is missing
  7. Hi Steve, Hopefully this helps clear things up a bit for you. Post counts are stored as part of each individuals profile as a simple number attached to your records. Over the years this count is simply incremented each time a user makes a post. As part of the upgrade process the software vendor included a required step which recounted every single member's post count to match the number of posts which were visible and existed at the time of the upgrade. The reason why the vendor did this is unknown to us but it was not an optional step we could bypass. There are a few reasons why you may have less posts now than previously. Largest is any forum which existed previously but has been closed and deleted, all those posts have been removed and no longer counted. Another possibility is any topic which has been deleted individually, those posts would not have counted during the recount either. The last possibility which you raised was the possibility of posts being lost during the upgrade. I can assure you that was not the case. As part of the process we verified the total system post counts before and after the upgrade and they matched. All you are seeing now is where prior to the upgrade if you were to add up each member's post count and compare it to the total number of posts in the system you'd find the member's number greater; now you'll find they match. While we would have preferred a choice we were not given the option by the vendor's software and unfortunately it was something we had to go forward with regardless. I hope this clears everything up Brian
  8. Those who were having issues please try again and see if you are still having problems
  9. They end up getting resized to 100 x 100 for the forums display and they are displayed at a different size on your profile I don't remember the exact numbers
  10. Go into the firefox cookie manager and delete anything related to avsim, both .com and .net and see if that clears up your problem.
  11. The forum's software generates a thumbnail of profile pictures for ease of loading unfortunately they does remove any animations
  12. If you click follow this topic you will be notified of any changes per your settings, you can adjust those under My Settings and then Notification Options
  13. Looks like something may be blocking the images from loading properly. I'd check your security settings
  14. Could you both please try accessing your PMs again and let me know if it works now
  15. Try deleting your cookies for avsim.net and letting them get reset it sounds like it may be an issue with it thinking they belong to a different address and not sending them.
