As an administrative decision, we have decided that posts in General Chat now require moderator approval. This is not an ideal situation, but as the site grows it becomes difficult to handle this quantity of bandwidth on the server (part of the reason we installed the paywall, this site can't run for free, unfortunately). Since General Chat can sometimes be the source of spam and other extra bandwidth, moderators will now have to approve posts to be shown here. We apologize for any short term inconveniences, but we hope that this will help us create the best site possible!

Just to clarify (and provide another voice about the issue) that there are two main issues that this change is addressing. First of all the influx of spam that has started recently, coupled with an increase in hosting costs. Without an increase in available funds, we are doing our best to provide a reliable and fun site, but in order to cut down on costs we have to make some cuts. We also have to try to add revenue in order to remain open, and the only viable way was to make changes to the Test Exchange.
It is in deepest sorrow that we make these changes, as information should be free to all, however there is no other way to keep the lights on, and the ability to keep most of scioly.org free to use is better then no scioly.org at all. Please feel free to PM me with any questions or concerns, I will be happy to address any issues you have, or suggestions in terms of how to keep scioly.org the best resource for Science Olympiad students across the nation.

Is it just me or lately have all the "the"s been turned into tehs, and all the yours turned into you'res? I read robotman's post yesterday with "the" and now they've all been changed to "teh".

And now I just previewed it and it changed all my correct ones to wrong ones haha. Is this the April Fools' Joke?

As far as I can tell this looks to be only on your end, I am not seeing these changes, maybe try clearing your browser cache?

Yeah, also I think that the only possible solution to the issue that your computer is having is that your computer got hacked.
