Its not a web hosting issue, its a "We never thought they'd make that many posts when we made the forum" issue. Alrighty. Should there be a forum reset? No need. We just bumped up the size of the column from 3 to 4 bytes. If we were to come close to it again (highly unlikely) we can bump ...

Forum problem fixed!

We ran out of numbers on our server and had to import some more. Thank you very much to Blaat and Ballotonia who helped fix things!

I am aware of the differences. However, if you want to let people log into your forums with their NS account, OpenId is a better fit that OAuth (which is a way for them to grant access to their account to the forum). Also, setting up the OpenId delegate is actually much easier than you make it out t...

While we do not (currently) support OAuth, we do support OpenID which may do what you want. Take a look at the bottom of your nation's settings page. Can OpenID be used to do some of the things tool authors are clamoring for? I don't know much about it. There seem to be two usage cases: ⋅ ...

Everything should be working right now. I haven't fixed all of the root causes, but any problems which do occur should fix themselves in around 10 seconds.

I'm new to OpenID, but if a user enters their server and delegate information in the settings page, does that mean they'd then be able to log in to another website using the OpenID "www.nationstates.net/nation=Laevendell" (in my case) or would the OpenID be something else (or have I quite...
