All these links, won't surprise me if ALL links website wide; need to be updated to hellgateaus.info instead of hellgateaus.info. Didn't even think of this when I heard the website was changing domains, sorry!!!

Sorry for the inconvenience! There's something going wrong at the moment - Maeyan has kindly extended the registration of hellgateaus.info for another year (up to 21-dec-2015 according to whois information), but currently somehow the DNS for hellgateaus.info is failing. I'll have to keep an eye on this and/or find a solution.

[EDIT] I misread the whois information, hellgateaus.info actually has expired and host names for the domain (at least for now) won't resolve anymore.

We might (mostly) solve this by (ab)using the "censor" feature of the SMF forum software - which could automatically replace any occurrences of hellgateaus.info with hellgateaus.info ... But then, this is kind of a "last resort", and shouldn't be necessary while we still have the hellgateaus.info domain available.

Regards, NiteHawk

I was actually going to try a find/replace on post text within the database itself (maybe a bad idea), but I couldn't connect so maybe there aren't any remote access permissions. Probably better off that way.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning.

It could be done in the database, but we might just get away with the "censoring" of hellgateaus.info as well - at least I don't think that's likely to cause any issues...

I made a mistake when looking up the WHOIS information, and will edit my post above accordingly. For now, my approach will be to set up the censoring, and then remove the forum notice that I had placed as an emergency measure.

This thread looks/reads extremely weird now, :D but at the same time that shows that the global replacing of "hellgateaus DOT net" works as intended. ;)

So if I go hellgateaus.info myself, I will instead be finding a lot of tinsel* and education* instead?

*They use some wacky filters on the marvelheroes forum, resulting in some threads where people say things that don't make any sense.


Edit: Just had to test the filter to see if it was working...
