Slowly, Bugs Are Getting Fixed
Jun 19, 2007 by broox

Alright dudes, I finally got some time to devote to getting SolidGrind all fixed up. That said, I've got some good news and bad news.

First comes the bad news. Some really annoying bad news. Anyone who has submitted photos since we moved to the new server (April 2nd), you'll need to resubmit your pics. :( I'm super annoyed by this. This one is actually 100% my fault and not Mosso's. I left a server path hardcoded in the photo submission code. It looks like this affects photos submitted by: sam, matrix8967, darkvermillion, ohanzee, slidy, spidersoaper, darkshortyx, kobansora, troy, xjeremiahx, tonyhawk111, soaper16, and qnzwarrior420.

If I ever meet any of yall in that list of names, I hereby grant you 1 free punch.

Next comes the good news.

1. I fixed the admin up so that the site moderators can now post photos you submit. There's still a really big list of pending photos, plus about 20 that failed in the last couple months.
2. I cleaned up some spam in the forum and also blocked over 300 users that I identified as spamming bots. I'm sure there are about 300 more, but I wrote a script that blocked the obvious ones.
3. I removed akismet (the wordpress spam filter) from the forum. It seemed like it was only blocking you guys and never blocking the actual spammers, wtf??? So it's gone - we'll see how it does. It should make posting much less annoying for yall.
4. Users marked as spammers don't show up in the user list anymore.

Now - what else is broken? I've heard a couple photos don't match their captions and/or thumbnails. Anyone know of some off the top of their head?
Also, is there any spam/spammers that I missed?

Things are looking better going forward...

Also, I just fixed the "future" comments in the forum. So they should stop showing up at the top of the RSS feed.

Just added a "Latest Forum Posts" section under the "Latest Comments" list on the left side of the page

also, upon adding the "Latest Forum Posts" i fixed the weird spacing on the "latest" links in Internet Explorer. I originally designed this site using Firefox and forgot to fix a couple things for IE... then I just kept putting it off.

Yea here Derek, the pic of your BS Farf on the ledge. It shows Aaron doing the FS on that giant rail, but it has the decription and comments of your pic.

Also, matrix8967 cannot log into his account. Can you see whats up with that

Jun 20, 2007 broox

what browser are you using? and what happens when you try to login? does the login box just stay there? or does it tell you that there was an error logging you in?

Jun 20, 2007 AnthoFlex

Its not me. I just got an email from Alex. He's upset cause he still supports Soaps and everything, but he cannot log into his solidgrind account. He doesnt wanna make a new one, nor does he want us to think that he sold out. Which i know he wouldnt. Hes a great promoter

Jun 20, 2007 AnthoFlex

his Solidgrind SN is:


Jun 20, 2007 broox

Jun 20, 2007 SpiderSoaper

dont worry about my pic, i put in the wrong one tht was really wack, so it's okay it's not here

Jun 20, 2007 Locke

Derek, that pic of your BS Farf on a ledge (while looking like Bam Margera) somehow displays as a pic of your frontside on a handrail.


Jun 20, 2007 AnthoFlex

Heres his email:

hey man,

Sorry I havn't been on solidgrind lately...I still soap as much as I normally do, and i still talk to people about soap and all...i just haven't been to the website...I don't want anyone to think i'm ditchin out on stuff (though i realize that's probably what it looks like)

Solidgrind won't let me post for some reason...i've tried like 3487645872894765874 times to post and it says i'm spam...so i'll have to create a new account...it also says i've not logged in since feb. which i know isn't true...

this week is pretty chaotic, but i'm getting alot done with college and stuff...so i'll mail them this week or next because i'm gonna be intown alot.

again, sorry for my lack of solidgrind visits. but i still soap as hard as I normally do...

Jun 20, 2007 broox

uh... that says he can't post - not that he can't login. but as i said in this article, i removed the spam protection, so he should be able to comment now.

Jun 20, 2007 AnthoFlex

Lol, ma bad then. I just assumed he coudn't log in, haha

But yea, i'll let him know.

Jun 22, 2007 rhinoskater30

man, you've really been working hard...

hats off to you, man

Jun 24, 2007 Megashadow77

...Why am I not on the user list?

Jun 24, 2007 sam

Beacause, the login times are really messed up.

Jun 27, 2007 RamenRadio

yeah, if you can look in your profile, it will say your last login was about 7 months ago. I don't get why it does that, it did it on the last server as well.

Jun 27, 2007 matrix8967
