Well, I figured seeing as we are getting some site news again, (thanks Stratadrake,) it may not be major news but, nonetheless news is news and I though it might be fun to discuss the going ons around here.
---

So, the latest news posted was June 12, 2016.

Still in the constant search for new featured works to be, well, featured. I'll be keeping a weathered eye out like always.

Also, seems that they're looking for suggestions for working around the IPv6 error some get when trying to log into the forums. Aside from the method I found I honestly haven't thought of anything else that may help. How bout you guys?

Also in this news update there was mention about submitted works without a category field. I'm guessing that must be when the category spot under the general info appears blank? I actually have seen a couple works with it appearing blank, I just thought it might be small glitch but, apparently this could be a bug. I can't recall the works I viewed that had the blank category field but, if I encounter more I'll be sure to bring them to attention. Have any of you guys notice this?

I can't recall seeing any samples of the bug in question, but maybe I haven't actively been watching.

^It doesn't seem very prevalent either as I haven't really seen any for awhile. Still, it's only a matter of time...

So far I haven't witnessed any bugs while posting on this forum.

Perhaps it might be fault either of the browser, or the operating system - I'm using Mozilla Firefox on Windows 7 and it's working fine.

^It's something that happens to certain users, (though not all,) apparently using IPv6 protocols causes this error to occur which ends up preventing users from logging into the forums. I suffered from the same error but found a work around to get back on here. And unfortunately it's not a simple fix like changing you browser or OS as I had originally tried those first and yielded the same error.

EDIT: Whoops, when rereading the recent news it seems they aren't looking for suggestions to work arounds to this error, it was just mentioning for those that suffer from it to post featured art suggestions to Strata's profile instead. Ah well, still don't hurt to bring it to attention and still find alternative ways around as the method I found only applies for Windows users. I'm not sure what those with different OS's would do if they are unable to do what I could on a Windows.

EDIT 2: For those who may not be able to log in cause of said error in question that happe to be reading this here is a link to a topic on it: http://forums.fanart-central.net/viewtopic.php?t=43230

Yeah, it's strictly an IP error, not browser or OC (We have three different computers in the house, and I attempted to access the forums on all of them. None of them worked until I followed your instructions.) Each computer runs a different version of Windows, and I tried on Chrome, Firefox, and even Explorer (yuck.)

As for the part about posting on my userpage, I intend this to be a standing offer that's basically always available.

^Hey, Strata, is this was your talking about/looking for for the potential category bug? 'Cause this picture has a blank category field'.

Yes, that's an example. (It was also submitted on auto rather than going through the queue, but that's not relevant.)

I found another image missing a category: http://www.fanart-central.net/pictures/user/AlcyoneSong/850499/The-Sorcerers-Secret

I'll just edit this post from here on if I see anymore.

EDIT: @Below - Okay. Though If you change your mind and need the submissions affected I'd be happy to keep a look out and collect them again.

That's probably not necessary unless it becomes a real problem. And even then it's the kind of thing we really should have a staff tool for.

I am occasionally unable to log into the forum but it always goes away within a day so I just wait it out. I don't know what an "IP error" is so I don't know if it's that.

Thanks for the New News posts Strata, I love news posts, even when there's nothing much going on. wish I had a journal here that showed on my profile and could be commented on like on some other sites, so I could do my own news.
