I have been getting that thing again where I don't see anything in the quote boxes.
Has anyone tried "blackened" in the forum preferences ?
I wonder if I (or anyone) would post differently, on pages of different styles and colors ?
Is there a way to upload a custom (viewing) preference ? (colors, font, etc.)
I used to be able to copy and paste images into the editor when posting, which was very convenient. It no longer works. The pasted image appears in the editor but does not appear in the post.
ah i just changed my "receive your news feed" to members.. and "view profile". thanks. and the thread was called 'santilli' something or other.I read a new post this morning, which I thought deidre posted with news of the Bundy et al arrests but I can't find it now. Thought I'd try the obvious thread but it's not there so then trawled Recent Activity and skimmed the avatars for deidre's - which shows not one her posts. Thinking smart, I tried to check all of deidre's posts but it says she's limited what people can see.
Presumably I'm not thinking smart enough and the hidden profile details obviously didn't help but how do I find the post, given these obstacles I found?
Moderators cant see your private messages, if that's what you mean.Do moderators see our conversations?
Can moderators see our registered email addresses?
Can moderators see our IP numbers?
No. Technically I could with a bit of fiddling (as I have access to the raw database), but I don't.Do moderators see our conversations?
The moderator who approves your first posts can see the email address used for registration (it's part of the spam filter info), but not after that.Can moderators see our registered email addresses?
Yes.Can moderators see our IP numbers?
theres one way down the bottom (tiny)Sounds silly, but is there a way to add a "back to top" button or link?
There's keyboard shortcuts for it as well, depending on your browser and OS. Like "Home" and "End" keys on the Mac, or Ctrl/Cmd - Up/Down on many systems
When you press the Back button, you are essentially going back in time, what I do is scroll back to the top of the page and click again on "recent activity" to get any new posts. Others may have a better explanation of this than me.One thing I've noticed, more as a mild nuisance than anything, is that when I have a message and/or alert and I've viewed it (either by clicking on it and seeing which post its on or actually going to the page with the new message, reply, etc) it will pop back up when I click the back button on my browser. Hopefully I'm explaining this clearly, but it will go something like this:
In this case, the only way to avoid this would be to press "home" after viewing the reply, head to rambles and wade through pages until I've found the original post I was reading. It's a bit of a pain.
- I am viewing a thread in rambles from several years ago
- I get a notification for a reply on a new thread of my interest
- I view the thread and read the reply
- I press "back" to return to the rambles thread
- At the upper right hand corner of my screen, the little alert number is back
- I have to click on it to view it and make it go away
Again, these aren't really gigantically irritating and someone else may have already reported this on here, but it does tend to get my hopes up: "Ooh! Another reply!" *click* "Oh, it's the one from last night. Hmm."
Oh I get that, it's just that I've seen similar alert interfaces (such as Facebook's, most notably) where there is a memory of what's been viewed and not viewed.When you press the Back button, you are essentially going back in time, what I do is scroll back to the top of the page and click again on "recent activity" to get any new posts. Others may have a better explanation of this than me.
if i dont want to lose my page, i right click my mouse on the alert thread and choose "open in new tab". this is on a computer of course.Where it becomes a nuisance is in a situation like my example, where I'm reading something from 2013 and I'm six pages in to a looooong thread. Getting back to that 'manually,' so to speak, is a bit tedious
Is there any functional/behavioural difference between Open Discussion and Rambles?
I'm a bit reluctant to add more ratings, as there's quite a few already. Maybe if there was more call for it.Would a Thank You rating not be useful? If I ask a question and a member answers it, at the very least I need to say thank you. Without such a button, I am forced to Like or Informative, all of which feel lame in this scenario.
