Because I'm an idiot, a post that refused to cooperate with the UTF-8 updates recently got axed in order to stop the site from throwing back errors to Google, Yahoo, etc, as their bots were scouring the archives for stuff. You can read more about the UTF-8 junk in the other thread.

In the meantime, content restoration for the "Password Corruption" bug discussion. http://www.smaugmuds.org/index.php?a=page&p=16

For whatever really strange reason, it accepted the text via the custom pages module. It's imperfect, but does the job. If the participants in the thread want to try and piece together who said what, I've no objection to trying to repost the thread manually to see if just reentering the data through the forum interface works.

Ha, thanks. That Google ban error on everyone seemed really weird and I figured the post was just lost in the Arthmoor crash.

So, anyone have any ideas to this day what the hell caused that password corruption bug that linked with ignore lists? :P

[EDIT] Darn, can't reproduce it in latest FUSS by adding that capitalize line.

Nope. Never did figure that out. I thought when you realized the capitalize was causing it and removed it that everything was fixed. Or at least band-aided enough to allow it to work.

And no, that crash was already 2 years ago. Time sure does fly. The topic was deleted a few days ago because of the UTF-8 update to the forum code. A lot of older posts have had issues, but that one topic had several and it didn't want to fix itself. Bizzare that it works now as a page link, but I'll take it.

Oh, the problem is fixed. I just want to know what the hell happened. :P
