    I'm sorry. I was trying to edit a reply and I think I crashed the new server.

    I was doing exactly the same when it crashed.

    Maybe it was both of us.

    I can not reach fcombustion.com on my phone. Is this a common problem, because mobile is my main way to access the interwebs.

    Edit: nevermind was in a bit of a panic when I wrote that, just saw that the site is temp. down.

    How could you guys? No more editing for you two until you’ve had time to think about what you’ve done. :rofl:

    Nothing embarrassing about it!

    Growing Pains, simple as that... glad it occurred while OG FC is still up and running, everyone will naturally come back and check this thread for information.

    It wasn't an accident @Stu . It's the government man. They're trying to silence our voices. :peace:

    The government and big pharma are trying to keep the little stoners down man. :myday:

    It's actually a problem with one of the servers that is affecting multiple websites that use our hosting service. I take no comfort in knowing that it's not just us, however. They are still working on it "diligently" and hope to have the issue resolved "shortly".

    Great work navigating this shitty situation mods! I had been wondering about the lack of SSL for a while... I figured it was a cost/benefit decision.

    My first thought is just scraping the forums with a python script.... what type of data are you looking to save when preserving threads? Should be able to pull down all of the markup and then strip out the good stuff.

    POC could be a fun project for the long weekend ahead :brow:

    This is our "Library of Cannabis", It is historical in every sense. I would like to think that if every member were to depart this space and time , this" time capsule "of sorts would remain to enlighten the future FC'ers to carry on this wonderful marketplace in which we all share ideas & opinions of the lifestyle we love .

    I just had the biggest belly laugh reading these posts because when the site went down I was also editing "numerous" times - and I thought maybe it was me! :lmao:

    Then, I read BFF's post & I'm in stitches!
    Thanks, guys, I needed that! :lol:

    Not recognized by member name, email or password on the new site.

    I have no idea what the Captcha clues are asking for?

    Can you please use something less cryptic? or word it more clearly? or explain here what it means about the numbers it wants?

    How many colors are mentioned in the question? That is the answer. I agree, it’s a tricky question - especially for stoners!!

    You must register a new account. If you don't understand the question, ask for another one.

    Was able to register and confirm my account successfully (had issues when I tried after this thread was first posted). Fwiw my registration confirmation did end up in Spam but hopefully with everyone who uses gmail here pressing "Not spam" as well as the domain growing older, their categorization models will update and receiving emails from the site won't be an issue anymore.

    Yup, i was thinking of trying to throw together an Apache Nuck crawler linked up to an Apache Solr install to provide search. Benefit of this is it could be left running to suck up all the posts that end up here during the transition to NFC. Simplest would definitely be to somehow recursively curl the website and then parse the data offline, the data is already structured so it really shouldn't be too difficult (famous last words)

    I just manually approved your registration so you should be good to go now.

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    Before anyone puts a lot of effort into a project like this, I'd like to make everyone aware that we are working on a solution and your effort will probably be redundant. Thanks for the sentiment.

    It's a shame we can't transition the stuff (posts, points, threads) over onto the new forum.
    This site needs to be archived. It's literally the most detailed vape database on the internet.

    There is no way to move the FC threads directly into the NewFC forums. We are working on building an interface to archived FC threads that we will host at NewFC. Stay tuned!
