  1. 500 Internal Server Error?

    Mike, I'm afraid that I wasn't able to check on this until today - having been out for a few days. I couldn't replicate the problem and it appears that others have been posting in the thread. It may have been a transient issue that was cleared (database lock, etc). If you continue to experience problems, drop me a PM. You have my digits. -john
  2. why was the thread about the online petition yanked? it's a very relevant topic to the activity and yanking it overnight does not reflect well on DCP

  3. Never Forget

    Thank you. On my To-Do list: remake the Tribute using a method other than Adobe Flash (which was really the only way to create this sort of audio/visual presentation in 2002). Flash is not available for most mobile devices and a growing number of desktops ... and we want everyone to be able to participate. I have some ideas - just need to spend the time to do it. We will never forget. -john
  4. You may have noticed that with our update on August 17th, the site-wide default "Profile Photo" icon was replaced with a "Letter Profile" icon/'photo' - if you do not have a Profile Image associated with your Member Profile. From the Invision Power Board release notes: You may provide your own Profile Image, as many have already done, by visiting your Member Profile and clicking on the Profile Photo to upload your photo. My apologies if this change has led to confusion. -john
  5. Click bait ads on DCP

    Of course not. However, we do not select the adverts that Google Adsense presents in that space. The ads are selected by Google using a number of methods, including your browser history. For more info on how this works, Google Adsense provides this: I have added the domain shown at the bottom of the ad to the block list, indicating to Adsense that we do not want adverts from that domain presented to our users. That's the only tool I have available to block 'offending' adverts from being shown in the space. If you find others and can identify the URL associated with the advertiser, I'll be happy to block. Hope this helps. -john
  6. The DrumScorps Season Pass is an annual (one year) auto-renewing subscription. The TOTAL cost for the year is $1.99 ... so the answer to your question is no - you're not being billed monthly. The Season Pass will renew 12 months after the initial subscription date and annually thereafter. Hope this helps. -john
  7. Oh hello new DCP makeover!

    Ahhh - perhaps. It makes sense, given the limited size.
  8. Oh hello new DCP makeover!

    I'm still working through all of the changes, Randy. My biggest interest was getting the security patches in place. The new release features: Richer Embeds for external content Reactions (emojis) Search Engine Optimization improvements Improved statistics reporting Some nifty new tools for moderators A number of improvements for administration Like I mentioned above - I'm still working through all of the changes, with the major focus on security. As for "total posts missing", I'm not sure what you're referring to. I can see users' counts on each post:
  9. Oh hello new DCP makeover!

    I've been holding off on a number of updates until after the DCI season was over. I had some time this morning (PDST), so decided to get them implemented. There are a few tweaks that I still need to complete - but the latest version of the forum software is in-place. You'll find some cool new features - so enjoy exploring. My apologies for the inconvenience and any confusion. I have to get these things done as time permits. Thanks -john
  10. All of the calculations internally are done to 5 decimals - but we were trying to save space on the screen. I've adjusted the recap to display greater resolution - so all of the numbers should be visible. Sorry for any confusion. -john
  11. Yes, it was brought to my attention last night. I've aligned the scores for the individual judges so their scores are consistently reported for both evenings on the Combined Recap. The single-day recaps show the scores as reported by DCI.
  12. Its something I've try to do in recent years. You'll find them on the DCP Caption Ranking System 'Calendar' as "Allentown - Combined". That said, we didn't do for 2016 because .... well ... there was a lack of data last year.
  13. I've put the data for both Friday and Saturday events in Allentown to produce a combined recap - including ordinal values for each subcaption. You'll find it here: Allentown 2017 - Combined Recap Enjoy! -john
