Aha! Spotted another one! In the main videos section, there is a link and description of a Super Soaker 200 commercial, whereas it's actually for a Super Soaker 100.

Also, for some reason the homepage has a whole bunch of warnings and associated gibberish.

I fixed the SS 100 link.

The problems on the main page are from some sort of scripting error. The script pulls posts from the News forum and formats them to fit in like a news column. We'll have to wait for Ben to post, but you may want to send him an email if he doesn't log on.

Once again, thanks for the error checks! The last one especially was quite a biggie, since it's our landing page for many new visitors and a prominent link to the forums.

EDIT: I just noticed the "recent posts" column also includes the same scripting error. I hope Ben or Drenchenator gets a chance to look at it soon.

Drenchenator and I moved in yesterday... now I have to catch up on all my emails and posts...

Yeah, the error on the front page is some scripting error. It seems that the PHP setting allow_url_fopen was changed to not allow that, so I can't call URLs like I did. The recent additions link was fixed because I could use a relative link. For the other one, I think I have to use something called cURL to do this. I don't know how to use that at the moment, so I'll investigate.

Thanks for noticing, because I probably wouldn't have.

Oh, and SilentGuy, I might give you main FTP access so you can take a look at the coding. Remind me if I don't do that today.

Edit: The homepage is fixed now.

It's funny how that php setting suddenly went haywire and with no warning. I also got the following error a while ago today. Perhaps they're related.

I think our host has been doing some maintenance recently, which explains some other problems I've noticed. There's nothing wrong with our scripts. I've got that error too and refreshing always seems to fix it.

Found another one in the Marks Guide. The Mark 4 SS 100 has it's information in the wrong columns.

Could you please elaborate? I haven't been keeping up with the Marks Guide, so I'm a bit lost... I do see that two cells aren't filled out in the SS 100 article, but I'm not sure where that information went.

Looking at the HTML page source, it looks like that information just wasn't filled. Mayhaps I'm confused.

The guns performance was under the "Edition" column, and the differences were under the "Performance" column. Doesn't matter, seems to have been fixed anyway.

Don't worry; I fixed it and just forgot to post I did. I just didn't start one of the cells for that row, so everything shifted over to the left. It wasn't hard to fix at all.

The "Expected price on eBay" article doesn't have a link from the main Market page. The only way to get to it right now is through the forums.

I agree. I did mention that off-handedly a while back, and I wasn't sure if Ben hadn't finished the article entirely or if he just forgot to add the link.

Thanks for the reminder, at any rate! I'll add it if nobody objects.

Actually, it looks like somebody already added the page to the Market section yesterday. If you still don't see it, refresh the page and skip the cache. I doubt you'll need to though since the browser may dump the cache when restarted.

Yeah, I meant to add it in the listing, but never got around to it.

I made a list of typos on paper and I need to get around to them. I'll likely do some in my free time this weekend after I finish some homework.

In the General FAQ:

The problem is that the 100oz AquaPack is not sold separately
You can buy them separately now.

Also in the "PVC in Australia and New Zealand" article, the intro paragraph is missing.
