During the past few days we have received complaints about decreasing postcounts. It appears that during a recent database maintenance images that had been previously uploaded to our galleries are no longer added to users' postcounts. I will manually edit the user accounts involved to reflect the actual number of posts (including the image count).

I apologise for the inconvenience. Namely, Frank's and Luc's account have already been restored, others will follow.

Tonight, we are also going to upgrade to vB's latest version, so the forum will be briefly closed. We expect a downtime of about 15 to 30 minutes.

Thanks for your understanding! 🙂

Welcome back.

Now reset the Shift-JIS encoding on the Nihongo forums. :D

Hm, the styles/encodings have not been affected by the upgrade. :?

<meta HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=x-sjis" />
Did we use Shift-JIS before?

I believe so. At any rate, the encoding isn't working. I think it's set to Western European (ISO) right now.

Before
- Automatically selects shift-JIS and Japanese text displays.
After
- Automatically selects Western-European and Japanese text does not display.

That's what Internet Explorer called it.

See Need a word or phrase translated?
You're right that
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=x-sjis" />
maybe it's the
<html dir="ltr" lang="en">
bit?

Anyway it has definately changed behaviour in both Internet Explorer and Firefox.

Wait a minute, now that you mention it... "keymoney", downpayment, provision, multiplied by 6.700 members, pardon, tenants... JREF is going to relocate to Waikiki... 😄
