*Walks into the room, near the piano then, with surprise on his face, turns his look towards the camera* - "Oh, hello there! I'm Oscar and Grammy nominated singer Josh Groban.
You want to know how to make it impossible to ever look or post into a thread again as much as i do?
YOU are going to LOVE this thread.
The member known as Cookie Monster will now explain how to do so."
"Thanks for being here, Josh"
"Aaah, i love you, dude. If it wasn't for you i would have never been aple to play with the amazing italian singer Andrea Bocelli."
"Stop mentioning that, it was a long time ago and i was only doing my job. Now please play some of your sweet songs while i speak."
"You got it!"
So, yesterday i was trying to post in a thread in the "Home" topic, and i had the absolutely brilliant idea of including in my post a spoiler with an enormous amount of sheep. Yep, this one . So i copy pasted it A LOT of times (i don't know exactly how many, but i'd say between one hundred and two hundred, if not more!). It seemed like my browser was crashing (my laptop is old, slow and stupid and it's something that happens often), so i tried to click on and it didn't load the page, and after a while the browser did crash.
I opened it up again, tried to access the page, and it just wouldn't load. I tried to access from other (better) computers, and the same thing would happen. After trying to load the page for a while, i just get a blank page. It looked like it was a problem of the website, rather than something related to the sheep, but i tried to do the same thing on another thread and the same thing happens. I asked help to my brother, who knows his stuff very well (and is a member on this forum!) but he couldn't do anything, and said i would need the help of a mod or an admin. (Also, we discovered i can see the thread using the IPBoard mobile theme, but when i click the same problem happens)
The good friend daniel tried to help me, and he logged in with my profile, but he gets a server error when trying to access the thread. The also good friend stretts tried to help me but there was nothing he could do even with his admin tools, so he put me in a chat with the great and awesome Sigafoos (also known as Siggy, Godmin and Radmin). He said the problem is the Auto Saved Content (i can't load the page because it automatically tries to load the flock of sheep, and fails) but he doesn't know where it is, so he can't delete it. He said he will look further into it, as he had more important stuff to do, but, even if he manages to delete it, i think this is a great way, and maybe the only one, to block your profile's access to threads and I highly recommend it if you don't want to see a thread ever again/do not recommend it if you like the thread.
Thank you very much daniel, stretts, Sigafoos and especially Josh Groban for helping me. You're all good friends and lovely people.
