    I'm not exactly sure how long it's going to be until everything is up and running again but I've been a bit annoyed with links being broken all over the place. For that reason, I created a couple of simple extensions that redirect you to the correct thing.

    A couple of things:
    There is a slight delay before the redirect.
    As far as I know, announcements are actually inaccessible.
    This is not meant to be permanent - just a fix until something else can be worked out.
    Username (i.e. http://www.smogon.com/forums/member.php?username=sandshrewz) links are a bit trickier. I can make them work in 1 click, but it's more work so I'm not doing it if no one cares. Currently, they direct you to a search for that user.

    :toast: Feedback is appreciated. :toast:

    I tried it, but honestly it's a hit-or-miss.
    half the times I'm still getting the 'no-input file specified' page.

    Yeah, I figured there would be things I missed. Next time that happens, send me the link that was broken so I can see if I can add it.

    I've fixed the couple of link types that Soul Fly brought to my attention. I think it should update automatically at some point but if you want to force it, just go to chrome://extensions and click "update extensions now".

    Well, looks like this was taken care of a little sooner than I expected. If member links are important to you, they're still broken so I'm leaving the links up for now.
