1) Removed all advertisements
2) Removed the poll temporarily for maintenance
3) Reintroduced the weather forecast
4) Reintroduced postal rates/charges
5) Modified the drop down list of members when writing a new private message, so it only displays active members within the last two years. This dramatically improves the page load speed as before it was listing all 12,000 members!
6) Also fixed a bug in the drop down list so it no longer puts a backslash before apostrophes in a username
7) Removed a number of previously available locations temporarily, until they can be added to the weather system. 600 or more members were assigned random locations, if this was you, you can go to edit profile and move to a different location of your choice.
8) Reintroduced the staff page

1) Fixed a bug whereby if a user hadn't uploaded an avatar, or it's corrupted, the forum would display a missing/broken image placeholder -- it now displays nothing.
2) Fixed a bug in the Fan Fiction pages that was outputting errors to do with division of zero.
3) Fixed a bug in the forum so that it now correctly shows whether a member is on, or offline

1) Fixed a bug in the private messaging system that stopped messages or replies from being sent when including an apostrophe or any of the BB tags.

Planet-Tolkien is moving web hosts over the next 24 hours. There may be some downtime so I recommended you do not post anything on the forum until I confirm the move has been successful. Thank you

I have been told that some of the members uploaded new avatars prior to moving hosts and that these have now been lost. I have downloaded all the avatars from the old host as well as the members table and copied it across. This should have fixed the problem. Thank you.

I received the following e-mail from our web host this morning:


We are committed to providing the best quality of service therefore
our system administrators are continuously monitoring system performance
and security.

To provide you with the best possible service we are moving your account
to a new storage system for better performance. In most cases no work
is required on your part. Only if you are using scripts this is using
the full system path they will need to be updated.

You will most likely not need to make any changes to your website coding
as we move all your content/files for you.

Please be aware there may be some downtime or errors as I will need to update some of the code to make changes to accommodate the new storage systems. Thank you.

The site's storage has now been moved and I think I have fixed the majority of script errors.
