Color creativity is something I spend a lot of time on. As long as you do the same in your perspective you can't go wrong.

Got it to work by logging off of this forum and leaving the "Remember Me" field checked on the main site login. Attachment.

Maybe I'm the only one here who's been getting all these login / cookie storage issues with this forum and the main site interchangeably because I'm one of the only users who changed the user name field.

both, i believe its an issue with the expired cookies, as it doesn't occur if i delete the cookies first.

regarding the forum
Occasionally, though i have it set to stay logged in sometimes i will load up the forum again and not be logged in.

To reproduce, I cleared the cookies by logging out of the main web site, which automatically logged me off of this forum board as well. I logged back on this forum and then the main web site--without "Remember Me" checked--and got the 403 Forbidden error page.

If I stay logged off off this forum board, I can log on to the main website with "Remember Me" checked. I have never been able to log on without that option checked.

should be fixed

If you're going to fix typos, there is a misspell of "forum" as "fourm" on the welcome page and "available" as "avaliable".
"Project64" is a proper noun, so "project64" is a misspell of "Project64". "eBay" is not a counterexample; it just uses camel notation to construct an artificial noun and hence is neither a proper noun nor a common noun as is a capitalized unofficial noun. If the word is artifically constructed, capitalization may not always make the first letter of that word uppercase, but you should retain consistency about capitalization. No hard feelings though--I've corrected grammar errors in my teachers' grammar books. :P Capitalization, on the other hand, pertains to spelling, actually, not grammar.

Speaking of consistency, in some of MIPS' official documentation on the main CPU instructions, they use "From" in their instruction names and "from" in other instantations of those instructions (or "Move From Coprocessor 1" in their instruction documentation while "Move from Coprocessor 1" in their alphabetical listing of all instructions). Prepositions shorter than five letters long are not capitalized in title case, so they got it right 50% of the time. OMG OFF-TOPIC1121!1

I'm more concerned about the large font size applied throughout the entire text on the welcome page. (See attached screen from before post.) If that's not a glitch it looks ugly imo; that font size is much more suitable for the "Welcome..." text than all of the informational, non-title text below it.

sometimes theres a "You are not authorised to view this resource" when logging in on the site :\

I used to frequently get that error message.

GAH!!! You ruined my chance to do a 2X combo attack. I was going to say before time ran out, the issue with Remember Me is fixed, lets me log in whether or not I checked it.
Though it still cites the internal server error if I'm logged on to this forum--but not the main web site--then log on to the main web site.

The welcome text looks great now, much better than the 72-bazillion point-size font down across the whole page.

was thinking when you get this, has the page been loaded before hand, or was it pre loaded from a previous time you where browsing

As for that issue I'd always get that if I loaded it some time earlier in the day but came back to it. It wasn't in another tab of my browser iirc.

Looks like adblock will block some non-wanted elements from the site (including Donate 20$ USD -button). This can be luckily edited via filters or disabling adblock temporary.

HatCat
7th October 2010, 07:53 PM
Yes, luckily, considering blockers waste more time than protect. I'd rather use adblock on an inclusive filter basis than an exclusive one, but that's only me since I go to the same or similar sites every time.

Because the log in with the main site and the forum is in sync there is no more issue with log in that I can find.

8th October 2010, 01:04 AM
Yes it seems there is much branching code before the internal server error message.
If you're okay now then that's good, but it might happen again later. Thanks to Mr. zilmar it's all fixed for me, but if it happens to you again make note of what you did to receive that message.

Do you have any problems logging in to the site though?

If you see the pop-up ads like the one you took the picture of they were part of the survey compensation design done by Mr. zilmar. They used to appear for everyone, but for some reason they don't appear for me now. If you need a link to the public versions from that page I can just give you that link for you if that trouble happens, and the 1.6 public version is mirrored as a ZIP archive on the beta downloads page.

1337
8th October 2010, 01:13 AM
For rite now at least the forum and the main site are working without any problems.....

To see what the problem was when the page wouldn't load, I tried it in IE8 and it said the 500 internal service error.

The spam survey thing I think just popped up for some randomn reason unknown to me.....

However, in the event that I get hit with the 500 error again, is there a way that I could contact someone to get some help?

HatCat
8th October 2010, 01:15 AM
Oh okay. To help verify I have IE8 as well, so if it happens again, let zilmar know. You may PM him or post in this thread.

If you find it happens on a consistent basis, that is, by clicking certain links or doing certain things on the web site to always get the 500 error, I can check it on IE8 over here, but only Mr. zilmar would know about the source.

Man how could I have forgotten that link. In fact I could have sworn, years back I remembered considering to ask the suggestion of linking that to something else if you're logged in as a beta member. When the FAQ system changed, I'm sure I mentioned it was a broken link before.

Well it's set perfectly now.

One minor thing though, this isn't really noticeable just an observation.
I checked the HTML of the page when I'm not logged in, and the "Project64 1.7 beta" is linked to http://www.pj64-emu.com/support-us/5-how-can-i-get-project64-version-1.7-.html, which is broken. Of course, you can't click the link if you're not logged in, (Well, you can if you instantly have your mouse in the right position before the ad screen pops up.) so it's no issue.

zilmar
8th October 2010, 04:31 AM

HatCat
8th October 2010, 04:50 AM
Oh, thought if logged in the panel for beta 1.7 in Binaries would be used as a link to the downloads. The donations system has been enunciated clearly already though, so that item wasn't necessary.

Just noticed that under the Project64 1.6 section of the Binaries page the two links have nonexistent targets. "updates section", "please consider making a donation"

HatCat
8th October 2010, 04:57 PM
And zilmar truthfully I haven't run into the 500 error again. I meant to say it was fixed when you fixed the "Remember Me" being not checked causing it and later with log on to the site when pre-logged in just on this forum.

I thought it's funny a 500 error would have something to do with login, but I haven't been able to reach that result again.

I have been trying to replicate the issue and have not been able to. I know it is happening for you just not sure how to fix it.

That was one of the original settings when the template for the forum had been set. If the post count field is set to a number less than 3, the user has no user title on their profile, and their user name isn't rendered to the members list. If you really needed to though you could just plug in a bunch of values for u or partially fill in the user name query in a search.

HatCat
28th November 2010, 06:38 PM
Physically, your Sun sign is the sign that was in orbit with the Sun when you were born.
Your Moon sign is what sign was in the moon's orbit.
Your Ascendant "Rising" sign was the one rising on eastern horizon of the sky at the time and place of your birth.

Astrologers believe:
Sun sign is your central ego that affects how you express your individual self.
Moon sign is your emotional inner self, reactant based on habit and worldly experiences.
Rising sign is your environmental temperament toward others, how you behave in company.

I don't know anybody's Ascendant/Rising sign, though, except my own, my mom's, and a small few friends who knew their time of birth as needed.

HatCat
28th November 2010, 06:45 PM
what about my sign Libra

Your Sun sign is Libra.
Libra is the cardinal (signs of initiative and action), air-element sign symbolized by the scales or a balance, for they are said to be proficient at weighing both sides of an issue for its pros and cons and having civil behavior, preferring peace and protecting others without an ambition for truth, in fear of the possibility of disappointing someone.

Your Moon sign is Gemini, the mutable (signs of adaptability, often easily bored or naive) air sign.
With this as your moon, you have a deep inner need for communication and changes to your environment.

HatCat
28th November 2010, 06:55 PM
Your polar opposite sign, Aries, by contrast is confrontational and ambitious, sometimes competitive and jealous, and, like all cardinal signs, often leaves unfinished work in its wakes.

If you're interested in this stuff, if you have your approximate time and city of birth I can find your Ascendant sign as well.

I forgot, trivia here: Some astrologers say that the Moon sign is more dominant in females than in males.

Of course none of this stuff is ever proven biologically. Psychology dismisses astrological profiling as perceptual bias, and the idea of planetary natural gravitational force affecting someone's personality during birth was totally wrong.
All I know is experimentally, it interests me.

okie...going by the date of birth in your profile,
8:30 AM (please correct me if you were born 8:30 at night, not morning)
El Paso, TX, USA

That returns Scorpio.
Your psychological nature is bilious with aggressive impulses that spur the transformation of your being and of any situation you are involved in. You are constantly struggling to assert yourself. You cannot refrain from testing others with cutting remarks, not because you want to hurt them, but because you want to know them better through their reaction; life and the feeling of aliveness are experienced through rebellion and tension. Your aggressive attitude may equate with sly inquisition as often, you remain silent, introverted and secretive, mulling over turbulent thoughts in the depths of your mind, leaving others puzzled by your quite strange behaviour.

Date of Birth "1992.10.16" (Oct 16, '92)
Time of Birth "20:30" (8:30 PM)
City of Birth "El Paso (El Paso), Texas, United States"

That returns Gemini.
Your mobility is such that you are in every place where you are not expected. You spend lots of time asking questions and… answering them. Your curiosity and your quick-wittedness are insatiable. Your mind is in constant turmoil, hopping from one topic to another, solving problems, accumulating anecdotes and knowledge within a short range of time. Your mobility is mostly mental, it takes you afar and turns your daily life into a mosaic of intense and pleasant moments that are not necessarily related to each other: provided things are moving, your neurons are kept busy and you can meet with people, everything is fine!

With this Ascendant, you come across as nervous, expressive, lively, adaptable, with a good sense of humour, bubbling, playful, sociable, clever, whimsical, independent, intellectual, flexible, ingenious, fanciful, imaginative, charming, cerebral, and you are into everything. You may also be capricious, unfocused, quirky, superficial, indiscreet, opportunist, unmindful, selfish, sarcastic or mercurial.

Beta downloads page loads, but the downloads themselves hang forever.

EDIT: Arse, the problem was solved by actually changing my password from the server-generated random password given to me upon registration.

I know this thread is quite old, but I've been trying to download PJ64. The download page displays, but clicking the download links never load/download.
