Problems with the forum

Post by Katiedot on Thu Sep 01 2011, 04:22

Hi all

Just started this thread as a place to log any problems or issues with this forum. If I get time over the weekend I'll also start a series of 'how to' threads showing you how to do stuff like quote, add pictures, videos etc.

The only problem I have been having in the last two days is the program is not keeping me logged in when I leave even though I have asked it to. No big deal to relog in but just thought I would let you know. Thanks for doing a great job!

My only problem seemed to be I couldn't join the chat on 31st. I tried at various times and was told I was disconnected w/ time. Tried to join and always got same msg. I didn't miss it too much because I spent the time catching up with all the threads I missed.

Your "how to" thread is very appreciated. Hope it will be written for computer illiterates like me.

Thanks Katie, would never expect you to have to teach on top of everything else you do, but it would be most appreciated by old dogs like me trying to learn new tricks. Tried to get on chat followed everyones instructions but couldn't find any hand to click on no matter where I placed the mouse. Nothing ever popped up for log in etc.

Currently, my problem is not having the time to log in as often as I like. Shocked

For your "how to" thread - please include how to use "wording" to represent a link. I know there is a special code that needs to be typed. (example: "Artical Llink" instead of pasting the actual link (http: // etc)

Thanks!

I think maybe I'd have trouble chatting after 3 glasses of wine 2 days in a row, too. And English is the only language I know. Hope you didn't have a hangover the next day. Next chat, drink tea or coffee!

Just to let you all know that because of people registering, posting stupid comments then leaving the forum only to re-register again the next day, I've changed the registering procedure and will approve each person wanting to join myself.

Sorry, this means it might take a day or two for me to approve membership because of work and timezone differences.

Sounds like a plan. If someone does really want to enter our inner sanctum, they should be willing to wait for approval but the Lady In Charge. (tried to think of a better name, but couldn't think of one that might be constued by you as sarcastic.)

Thumbs up!

This new rule is for new people wanting to register or
will it apply to the ones already here, but also new?

You already are approved nnz! It's new people who want to register to join the forum that need to be approved. If you're here and posting, you're already one of us!

Katie, I tried to post on patty's General Chitchat thread but instead of sending the message it's taken me to the "Confirmation Code." I was remarking about her dong emails and is that just a little off-color? Curious.

No, it's something the system does every now and again. It seems to be random and is just to check that you're a real person and not a spammer. It does it to me too.

All you need to do is enter the confirmation code it shows you in the area it gives you.

OK thanks, I was a little initimidated by the slash marks and the strike overs in the confirmation area. I'l try it if it happens again.

I got a very cute animal slideshow with Alleycat audio on my email and I'd love to share it with COH on Chitchat.

Is there any way I can transfer from my email to the forum? I don't see a way to embed.

Slideshows? Nope.

You could maybe save your slideshow as a video then upload it onto youtube then post it here, but I can't help you with how to do that.

Blubelle, please don't be intimidated by your lack of computer blog expertise. I have probably made more mistakes than anyone here but at least I'm learning. Well that's what happens when you're blogging weeks before finding the location for COH rules and directions. Guess I was being impulsive like G rather than logical like Davida-Rochelle usually is.

Hi Katie,
I wanted to open an account with www.servimg.com but when I tried to log in always got the information: You put in the wrong e-mail address resp. your password is illegal. Where is my fault and what can I do?
Thanks for your help

Oh Merlin, thanks for that information. I was starting to worry if Katie was coming back. I miss her comments and, me being me, I was thinking this forum might be shut down.

Yeah, and? What happened to my ballons, cake and champagne, huh? Huh? Huh??

@Baloothebear: have you registered with servimg? The servimg site has nothing to do with this site so you need to register with them first.

If you've registered and still can't log in, you need to contact their team and there should be a 'help' or 'FAQ' section somewhere on that site.

Katie, I wanted to open an account with servimg but could't register because when I tried to open their site it started directly with the member box asking for login with e-m ail address and password. So I don't know where to register with servimg. Can't find any FAQ or help section.

Hm, that's weird. Clearly whoever created that site is an idiot and I can't remember how I registered with them.

No matter, you can use any other picture hosting website instead. Try imageshack or photobucket. The process works the same way.

Hi Katie, I have a question. I would like to use some of the options which we have in our Profile sections and somehow it does not work for me. I go to :
1. Profile
2. Preferences
3. Made the changes
4. Press on Save
And so far no results. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance,
Zizi

Zizi, sorry, you'll have to wait for Katie. I don't know.

However, It's Me, you need to go to Profile, then Preferences. Read down through them and mark "no" to receiving emails when someone replies, etc. That will stop emails being sent all the time. I know, it happened to me!!!

Hi Zizi, what is it that you're trying to change?

It's Me: I'm assuming that in the profile>>preferences>>"Always notify me of replies" you've changed it to 'no' and then saved?

Have you also gone to the "topics being watched" tab and removed everything from there? You'll still be getting emails from old subjects if you don't remove from here too.

Hope this helps!

Near the top of the screen you should have a link that says "you have no messages". Click on that and it will take you to the PM (private messaging) system.

Katie, can't remember, but does the Forum have a post quota before allowing PMs? Joanna only has made 56 posts as of this post.

I'd prefer to have different games from those on CNCU just so that there's no overlap between the two forums, but if people want to play then let them play.

This isn't really a problem, more of a pet peeve. Is the flood control an auto set thing at 60 seconds, or is it something you can adjust? The reason I ask is that I can read and type quicker than 60 seconds and I ALWAYS get flood control! It just crimps my style. But, if it's an auto thing, I understand and I will comply and quitmybitchin!!!
