    Also check out the new sub-forum icons, we are starting to add them per topic area. If you run an area like a DCG group and want your icon just send it in a DM to Number6
    Initial size: 32x32 pixels, PNG, prefer 256 colors or less. Larger sized images may be used in the future, so consider providing several sizes:
    32x32
    64x64
    96x96
    128x128

    Please use original content, or some variation of opensource artwork, or artwork which you have Copyright controls.
    (Piracy does not work, when you "store" your "pirate treasure" out in the public for anyone to find.)

    Content provided should not violate the forum rules, or the DEF CON published Code of Conduct.

    Please strip out any meta-info from the image, and publish them with some sort of Creative Commons, or GPL, or other public source or public domain use, or grant Copyright permissions to DEF CON to reproduce them (that is kind of how web servers work, yeah? It would be silly to give us an image and not give us permission to copy it and modify it (resize, strip meta info, etc.))

    If you are having trouble sending them to me in a forum DM on the forums, let me know in forum DM and then I can DM you with an email address to attach your images and a subject for you to use send them to me.

    Maintenance, upgrade and patch completed. Please let us know if you see problems.

    Thanks!

    Tested:
    Attachment upload appears to work
    Avatar upload appears to work
    Able to post new posts
    Able to post replies.
    Email from forums works
    PM works
    Articles load
    Edit Post works
    Blog works
    Comments work.
    Email from forms when PM arrives and email notification on PM is enabled.

    Problems found:
    When trying to view a thread "Search result already expired, please try a new search" error, but eventually this error went away; looking for a way to duplicate. Once I know how to duplicate this error reliably, I have a better chance at tracking it down.

    Please report weird CSS/Controast issues with contents. Sometimes upgrades displace customizations to make themes work, forcing us to re-create those customizations.

    Hello, Apologies for the longer-than-expected down-time for maintenance.
    More than usual DB work was required.
    Forum software has been upgraded.
    45 legacy styles no longer supported with latest release have been scrubbed from the DB. None of your accounts should have been using them anyway. Most were duplicates of existing names, just not supported or upgraded.
    if your account was attached to a legacy style, and the web pages on the forums look really different, choose a new, supported style from those available.

    As usual, please report problems you find. If you can report them, here, Great! Otherwise, you can shoot us an email at the "Contact Us" link.

    Where did you see reference to this? With more information on context, maybe I can find an answer.

    Awesome, thanks, that's most of what I needed. Do you know if the image that was under the "BOM" section uploaded locally to the forum or was it an offsite link? I can do without it if it's a hassle for you to get.

    I sent it to you in two messages, hope that works!

    We are getting close to being able to start dragging older show archives over to the visit part of the forums in a week, maybe. We are working on how to simplify the layout but still get you all the information, and I think we have found a way.

    We can test it with the contest you are interested in first.

    The fastest option is I just copy and paste it to you in a message.

    I wanted to look at seeess's writeup of the DC23 shoot badge, he made some detailed posts at the time with full parts lists and all. I can bug him for some of the info, but the posts had it all detailed out. I am looking into reissuing the badge (or one very much like it) for this year.

    Edit: Wayback doesn't have it archived, but I got the old URL if that helps:

    The storage of the old forum content does not lend itself well to being zipped-up for humans or browsers to read. The forum posts are not stored on the filesystem as files; they are stored as records in a DB.

    When to make archives available to users is a decision for DT.

    What can you do? The path most likely to change the priority of that step he has announced is planned it to explain what you need and why; reason is a great motivator.

    Another option? Try "The Internet Archives" : https://archive.org/
