I slapped this site up quickly and there seem to be quite a few errors that need to be fixed.

I used the auto installer from the web host to install SMF and then just copied the sewergab categories over from WayBackMachine. That's how you get a site up in ten minutes.

Since then I have been just adjusting stuff (and learning how it works) on the fly and there seem to be a few conflicts that need some Bart love and attention.

Sometime Sunday morning the site will go in maintenance mode for an hour or so.

This is your fair warning.

I'll try to take a nap during this time frame.

it appears that MV (or the new owner) has asked archive.org to remove bellgab.

Seems like he would have done that before shutting down if he had been planning on it for some time.

I think it was an impulsive - "I'm tired of dealing with this crap" thing.

Awesome.  Time to test LiveLeak.   It worked at one time on the old place but didn't towards the end.


In this test clip, a young lady in China spray paints a picture of Xi and challenges the government to come
and get her.  Apparently she has been since 'disappeared'.

Edit: Well no LiveLeak - I think thr forum will live without that functionality.    :P

I did what I could to fix issues.

There still seems to be an issue with the mail function so pay attention to your password, you may not be able to reset it via email until I figure that out. It worked for a day or two then just stopped sending.

Youtube is fixed, attachments seem to be, too.

Avatars work now- check your profile, if your avatar doesn't show there you will have to reupload it.

The reported posts went from over 50 to zero since one person got sent away, imagine that!

No, just post the link.
The only issue is with mobile links, if you remove the "m." then it works

Bart should give Noory “special deal” on el gabbo.

The only other person I can think of who might want to purchase it to get rid of a thread is George Senda.
