Please post on this thread to report other problems occuring on ORIENTED.org
Thus far, I will discuss three (3):
- Immediate expiration on Jobs Database
- Missing graphics around the website
- Continuing problem with the unregistered forum logins
Sometime last week, the ORIENTED Jobs database started to lose postings that were stored prior to the current date.
I do not know why this occurred , but I have hope for a solution: The original developer of the software we use contacted us with a possible fix. I plan to incorporate his suggestions next week.
Some graphics used on the ORIENTED.org website reside in webspace allocated on our sister website, freeclassifieds.com.tw
Freeclass went down last week, and I need to contact TWNIC to resolve the matter. This should be taken cared of shortly (next week?)
I regret the confusion concerning the failure to participate in discussions due the forum software not accepting unregistered postings. I also note requests for assitance from new members who believe they have properly registered, but are not being recognized by the system.
For the time being, I am planning a major technical overhaul of the forums in AUGUST 2002 (either an upgrade of the Ultimate Bulletin Board from www.infopop.com or a switch to a new system, like PHPbb – see poll on this thread).
I am going to be in Taiwan for a few days in July. I may NOT be able to do anything substantial with the forums while I am here – but I’ll try what I can. You can send e-mail, hate-mail, words of encouragement, sarcasm, or some-such platitudes to me at
