Almost every time I visit the site and browse a few images my wifi drops for a moment then returns. Wired connection stays on just fine, however webms occasionally don't work after the drop. This is my own personal internet connection and I am the only one who lives at my house or uses my internet

try browsing another gallery site (e.g. danbooru, pixiv, deviantart) and see if you get the same behaviour.
what hardware are you using specifically? a laptop? an android phone?
what leads you to believe the wifi drops out? e.g. does the symbol in the system tray switch briefly to the disconnected icon then back to normal? web pages yield an error if they were loading at the time?
you're sure there's no other network connection enabled at the same time? e.g. maybe you're actually using cellular internet, and the drop-out is switching from one tower to another

The bulk updater no longer allows chaining tag actions from unalias to a new alias or implication.

...throws an error: Error: Antecedent tag must not be aliased to another tag (create implication x -> z)

This has massively reduced its usefulness. Unaliased tags are left at zero posts, so those cannot be easily aliased/implicated in another update. Since that requires them to have 20+ posts. Same goes for unimplicated tags that have less than 20 posts.

I will see what I can do. As I have been adding sanity checks for aliases and implications to prevent them from breaking the site or corrupting posts, the lack of sanity checking that BUR relied on has been slowly vanishing. So I'm stuck in a situation of removing sanity checking from BUR, which is not a great situation, as they have huge potential for messing things up if they go wrong. Right now validation of each item takes place in isolation because there is no way to simulate that previous actions took place successfully. This forces me to create a simulation process and write a bunch of code for what amounts to a very hacky feature that I'm feeling more and more frustrated with by the day. All of the code that the BUR system interacts with has been designed without the concept of being run as part of a script, but created by hand inside a static system.

It's turned into one of those endless wells of pain and problems and I have to keep making them less useful so that we don't end up with totally invalid alias and implication state.

Hmm. Would it be feasible to waive the 20+ post requirement for bulk updates? Then the re-aliases/implications could be easily done in subsequent bulk updates, after first unaliasing them. That'd still leave the important checks in place; the post count requirement doesn't seem like something that could result in a major mess...

I talked this over with Nimmy, and we agreed that it's causing more work and trouble than it's actually saving us. So it is going to be removed along with the wiki page requirements. I will likely have excised it from the code tomorrow along with some fixes for the uploader.

I still intend to try and fix the BUR validation process, but it may be deferred for a little bit so I don't want to just rip it out entirely.

I'm unable to login/change password or even accept the terms of agreement.

I'm using a firefox browser on my Android.

anytime I try to login I keep getting:

An unexpected error occurred

Log ID (none)

Ever since the transition to the new site i've had every time I login a "You have unread mail (2)" notification message and I've tried checking my messages, deleting said unread messages (at least I think I did), and turning off the notification but it just doesn't go away. Please help!

Some of the aliases don't show up in the wiki. For instance: sex train, which is aliased to train position.
I'm not sure if that's because the alias in question is so old that it's not even dated, or because someone wrote a new wiki for sex train.

Color formatting doesn't work at all with the new table format. It actually breaks the format instead. The format also breaks code that appears after the table. The code block in my post will not display if it is posted after the table.

[table]
[tbody]
[td]Text without formatting.[/td]
[td][color=red]Text that is red.[/color][/td]
[/tbody]
[/table]
Text without formatting.[/tbody][/table]

I just noticed that the 'Popular' page's API returns deleted posts amongst its results, whereas the page itself completely lacks the HTML of those posts i.e. if 5 out of 100 posts-per-page are deleted, the page's HTML only has the remaining 95, whereas its respective API result has all 100 results.

What's the point of having undo buttons on the post changes page if they don't do anything?

they might do something if you're logged in as a moderator or admin

You can undo your own changes, but not someone else's. Although, it does not remove the edit, it just creates a new one that reverts it.
I'm honestly not sure if this is the intended behavior, but it does kinda make sense not to allow everyone to just roll back a bunch of changes.

For the last couple of days, when I click to log in after putting in my username and PW, the site gets stuck loading my log in status. When I click the "sign in" tab again, it gets me out of the loading and my account is logged on.

I think there is a bug on the mobile browsers as well. I keep seeing things I’ve blacklisted and I have to manually remove them in the search bar. Is this a new bug or is it an old one?

I noticed this today too although for me it's just random posts. (I am using a computer)
Like I will see a post that is supposed to be blacklisted and when I click on the post, it tells me the tags that are blacklisted and it still gives me the option to turn the blacklist off, even though it didn't blacklist the image in the first place like it should have.
But for some reason this is just for random posts because when I disable my blacklist on the main page, blacklisted images do appear.

when I click reply to insert a quote, my browser scrolls to the top of the page and no quote is inserted. IE, firefox, chrome, opera. no extensions running.

If type:sfw or flash are on blacklist, it still loads flash "enable flash" page, and disables keyboard shortcuts when going through posts (since doing it that way does not skip blacklisted posts)
