Title: Forum scripts and stuff

> As your Tech Admin I feel I must say this:

> I am extremely sorry for the problems I might have caused on the last hour. This was due to a few reasons and I think they should be named, for the honesty's sake.

> First. Mainly, Invision's Free fault. They seem to have changed where our scripts are hosted, so I had to switch many of our current scripts from their original location to the new one.

> Second. Mainly, "NoScript"'s fault. They have just released and update that requires extra set-up from the user regarding external script references. External script references is when instead of having the script written directly on the forums, you put a link to where your browser should read the script from. A few people using that script reported problems with the header, which leads to the next point:

> Third. Mainly, my fault. Short story: When I programmed the DefCon system, the opening tags of it's table were written on the page. But the closing tags were on the script. So if there were a problem with the script, the opening tags remained open, interfering with the header and all the forums tags.
Long story: Since I created the DefCon script from scratch, I couldn't test anywhere other than our own forums. At first it looked correct. On XHTML language, you can open tags and have their variables written like color=black, color='black' (single commas) or color="black" (quotes). The first problem was that I didn't set one of the small DefCon lights' widht with double commas. (width="60%), thus interfering with the rest of the script. When the script failed to load, the "whidth" var would then read everything on the page until the next quote and set it as the widht of the table, thus creating that effect you could see on the thread Techy opened.

> At last, this is a formal apology and I'm here to solve any problems with the goddamn header anyone is still having. Also feel free to flame and call me noob for letting that happen :shy:
