Hi, I'm not a very active person on here, but I have some really old FAQs/Guides and I'm trying to update them after vanishing for a few years.

When I go to submit an update for any of them through the Author Admin, I get a page:

"HTTP 404 - File not found

We're sorry, the page you are looking for is no longer available or the site you came from has an invalid link in their database."

Any idea on what I can do? Thanks.

The same thing happened when I tried to "Preview" this post, etc. So there's a good amount of 404's I've encountered. I've tried both Firefox and Internet Explorer, clearing the cache in both. Same deal.

Okay, I guess I'll do that shortly, but...

There's a lot of stuff tripping 404's (and I see posts about other people complaining too) and you give them almost always the same response and disappear.

I don't intend to be rude or anything. But any particular reason why it's getting shoved aside and not getting fixed, considering your a "Founder"? Like I said, I'm not active here, but still, I don't remember this many errors when I came here back ago.

some errors are due to the websites' security. so if you make a post, blog, or update your profile and have too many specific punctuation marks, you will get an error (mainly single quotation marks are to blame for causing this error)

other errors can be solved by simply clearing your internet cache.

and PWizard is not shoving you aside, he is referring you to Nevermore who is the lead web programer & designer, so anything to do with the mechanics of the website will be tasked to him. Pwizard takes care of logistical things, with his official title being Business Operations Manager, he decides which games are going to be trained and the priority of which active games are updated. he also manually upgrades the accounts of every member that purchases an unlimited membership, and leads the moderator team if any pressing issues are at hand, among many other things.
