    Forum Members: The Stratics Forums will be taken offline sometime during the evening of Saturday, June 15th, 2013 for a migration to a new server. We anticipate that service will resume sometime on Sunday. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding as we work to make Stratics even better. We'll keep you updated via our social media outlets.

    The main UO Stratics site seems to be down or partly down. Is this related to the forum move?
    It's the smithing bod calculator I was trying to access, never had problems before.

    There's a guide that covers clearing cache on a lot of browsers [linky], also you can try clearing cookies too (or at least the Stratics ones) and see if that helps.

    You can also try flushing your DNS cache if you're still having issues with it. Go into a command prompt and use the command "ipconfig /flushdns" (without the ""s) if you're in Windows, and for linux it's /etc/rc.d/init.d/nscd restart (as root)

    If none of the above works, panic. No, just tell us what the issue is and someone who knows more than me will know the answer :D

    I had Uhall, Sonoma shard forum, Rares forum and Holiday trade forum all bookmarked. All of them now take me to stratics.com. I did re-bookmark all these and they seem to work fine.
    I still cannot see myself logged in at all for stratics (though I obviously am to be able to post this).
    I see no way to log out.
    My buttons on top left for alerts, messages and such are all gone.

    I'm using google chrome if that helps at all.

    My buttons are all there. Trying switching styles and see if that works. I'm running UOClassic.

    Update: I did as Viper09 suggested and tried another "theme". My buttons are back and yes I see myself logged in. But switching back to Default UOClassic again made all my buttuns and log-in/log-out disappear.

    What device are you using? I know that when I'm cruising this site using my android phone using the Default UOClassic theme that those buttons appear to be hidden. However, on my computer they show up just fine.

    I think someone posted on this problem before, it's a question of resolution/screen width. If I reduce the width of the browser window on my monitor the buttons disappear.

    Makes sense given how small the resolution on my phone is. Doesn't bother me though, if I receive an alert or message on my phone I can still review it.

    What happened to the uo.stratics.com subdomain? uo2.stratics.com works, but that isn't a very intuitive name.

    At last I got the forum to load.
    On work I'm running IE8, it could show some of the forum, but without any style and I could not do anything, reply, log out or change forum style, I'm using UO Classic style.
    At home, I'm using IE9, that would not find the forum at all. Then after deleting cookies, the forum came up, but when I logged in, it got an errow and would not work or load.
    I had to delete cookies 2 times more before it stayed up after I logged in but it still have problems, then I click on a post, nothing happing before after several click.
    I don't know if it is the UO Classic style, that have a problem. The problem with not being able to open a post or go back to the forum, had been there for months, on oth my work PC and at home.
