Just checking to ask if anyone else isn't receiving thread updates despite proper settings or is it just me? :scratch:

If someone wants to make me a "foe" go right ahead. But, from what I read on the user panel, it only blocks the text of the "foe" him/herself from appearing, it still shows that the person posted. And, I would think that if one is acting as a mod, the "foe" option probably would not work in any case. Mods would obviously be able to need to read what "foes" post.

Ah, probably true. Well, perhaps you and Silwen could become foes, just to see what it does. ??

Silwen, I'm not getting thread updates either. I was wondering if I needed to resubscribe or even "update" my email in my profile.

FWIW, I did find some code that would probably fix the squished smilie situation. I'd have to wait till Jude has time to walk me through it. It involves updating the css code, and I don't know how to get into that to change anything.

Alright, Silwen is going to be my temporary foe. :horse: ;)

Yup, instead of seeing her post, I get text which states that "this post was made by Silwen, who is currently on your foe list. Click here to view this post."

Now off to see if I can remove her!! :D

Successfully removed Silwen from "my foes" list, and her posts now appear as they normally would.

I suspect we need to configure the mail server and address. Anyone want to tackle that?

(p.s. I notice that the "quote" and "edit" buttons is in reverse order from what they used to be. I apologize in advance if I ever accidentally edit someone's post! :Q )

Ah alright, I thought it might be something I did wrong instead. If everyone has the same issue, then it's good news. :D

Btw, Jude, I sent Mark to check out Calton Hill today and see if people still talk about us. :cool:

So what happens when you add someone to your Friends list? Do you get notified every time they post?

Jude, I have no idea!! I also do not subscribe to threads, since I am usually here checking out stuff overall. I guess I could add some people as friends who post here fairly frequently and see what happens. I think I should choose mods and regular posters to see if there is any difference.

BTW, the quick reply box has no "options" attached, as in the quote, url, etc. options.

I added several of you as friends yesterday. So far I haven't noticed much with it except that if you send me a PM there is a color next to your name that corresponds to something.

Perhaps I haven't looked in the right places.

ETA: Or this: "If the template has relevant support any posts made by a friend may be highlighted." Maybe our templates just don't support the highlight thing.

Yep, but it works for right now. :) There's a master list of suggested/requested changes in the Business Room if you'd like to add yours.

Wilma, everything that was posted on b77.net after Jude backed up the old board was not transferred to the new site. So if your missing threads and posts were from the last couple of days, they weren't transferred here. There's no way to move them from the old board except to just repost them here. Hope that helps. :)

What Elsha said.

There's about a day-and-a-half of posts and PM's missing. That would be whatever happened between when I made the backup and when people started posting on the new board.

Smilies are mostly fixed! I know some look a little wonky, but it should be a lot better than it was.


Goodnight!
