I am having a problem with SSC Lebanon forum.

I have bookmarked the Lebanon sub-forum in SSC in my browser (obviously!). For the last 2 days, I wasn't able to access it from my bookmark, and I thought the whole site was down. Everytime I press the bookmark I get:

We're running into some strange database errors. No ETA on a fix yet.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but in the meantime invite you to check out SkyscraperNews! Thanks for your patience

I tried today to get into the main site by typing it in my browser, and to my surprise, the SSC opened without any problem whatsoever. The biggest surprise was that I was able to get into the Lebanese forum by clicking the "Lebanon" link DIRECTLY from the Continental Forums> middle east tab. If I enter the "middle east" forum THEN click "Lebanon", I get the same error. The same error appears if I am in "Cedar Cafe" (or any Lebanon sub-forum) and I click on the "Lebanon" link in this upper bar to get back to the Lebanon forum.


After some investigation, I figured that the problem was that the working link refers to:

While the old/not working link (the one that gives me the error), refers to:
Since it's a problem in our forum and not SSC in general, please Lebanese moderators do something. And thanx in advance Beiruti...

Beiruti, I thought the problem was in my Google Chrome browser, so I tried IE 8, and same problem! I am on windows 7 ultimate, using Google Chrome, and on wireless broadband in Beirut. I also tried my laptop and had the same problem...am gonna be trying my MAC now to see if the problem is in the OS. Anyone in Lebanon having this problem. Am getting 100% of times error when i click the second link (no exceptions whatsoever).

^^ Oddly enough, I bookmarked the "KSA" forum, and it worked. But when I changed the last 2 digits of the link

to 94 (to target the Lebanese forums), I got the same error. I thought it's a cache problem, but I remembered that I tried my laptop to no avail! It's also not a problem with my account, becuz I am not logged in from my laptop!

^^ Update: I tried my MAC laptop (running Mac OS X 10.4.10), and using Safari browser, I got the exact same error. Tried Firefox on MAC too, and same thing also. I even tried my mom's laptop running windows XP SP2 and on IE7, and got the same error every time !!! I am really going nuts!

Oh, and thanx a lot Beiruti, I appreciate it bro...:)

Update 2: After trying every other connection and computer outside my home, and found out that all did work (!!!), I deducted that the problem was in my home's connection, so what I did is I changed my proxy settings (which changed my IP) and voila, am in!

Now the question is: is my IP banned from accessing the Lebanese SSC forum, or is it a problem with my ISP?

PS: all it takes is to restore my previous (normal) proxy settings and...BAMM...error!!! What on earth is happening?

^^ I'm glad you were able to fix it. They arent sure what the problem is since no one else is experiencing this issue. An IP block would prevent you from accessing the entire site, not just this section. I think we can blame it on the upgrade process...

Dear forum members,

I would like to announce that I have stepped down as one of the forum's Moderators. I am thankful for the several years of service and wish you all the best. You are left in great hands and this should not disrupt or change anything in any way. I'll still pop in from time to time.

Have a wonderful holiday season.

Best,
Beiruti

Guys plz help me with these two questions. (I am using the app)

Most of the photos in threads show a "broken" sign and do not display anything. Does that mean the thread is old and the photos were deleted/moved or is that an issue at my end?

Second question. Is there a way to view latest posts? I mean like the latest posts in threads related to the Lebanon forum for example. I just find it very complicated to find the latest news unless I enter each thread one by one. I am sure there is another way? Unless I have subscribed to a particular thread that is.
