I used to be SKYWARPED_128 until yesterday. Tried to log in, but the site kept saying I "specified an invalid username" or something like that. Definitely not a typo on my part, as I use Firefox's automatic login.

Decided to create another account, logged in and looked up my old username...and it no longer exists?!

WTH?

If you registered in the last couple of days, Ryan had to restore the user database from Sunday (I think) so any new accounts would have been over-written.

When you set up this account it would have slotted in over SKYWARP2.0 (who had originally posted that) before his account was written over and his original account was restored.

I personally can't. But if you go to User Control Panel, click on Profile, then Edit Account Settings you should be able to change your name there.

If the account was wiped, the name should be free.

Why don't external links generated in posts contain the target="_blank" attribute? Don't you lose a lot of traffic without that?

Also the site is really slow in China. I have to wait for all the embedded social networking APIs to timeout before the page will load.

That's a great suggestion, Paul. I've modified the code so that links will open up in new windows. At some point, I'll modify it so that it only does that with external links but for now all links will open in a new window.

I'm assuming it's the Facebook window in the bottom of the right hand column near the caption contest. Are you able to access Facebook in China? Could also be all of the Google based ads that are on the site as well. I heard that Google was blocked in China again last week so perhaps that could be an issue.

That's awesome, thanks. I usually post in the KO thread with links to my album of new funny KOs I find in China. I was feeling bad that when people click on my links and go to my site in the current window, they might forget to go back.

yeah, fb and twitter are blocked here. They compete with some Chinese social networking sites, lol. google stuff seems to be ok, I think china intermittently slows down google here though.

I've developed sites that needed to work inside china as well, one solution was to load all the social networking stuff after the onload event, not sure if all functions can work that way though. or putting some things in iframes,

Motto: ""Excessive force is not necessary.""
Usually, when I'm posting and I hit "download attachment" I click on the file I want and the picture is displayed in the post. Other times, however, in following the exact same process the only thing I can get to appear in the post is a box surrounded by a dotted line with the file size and "not downloaded yet" printed on it. One actually has to click on the link to view the pic, which is kind of schlocky.

Why does this randomly happen?

Preaching to the choir. The Lexington, NC Wal-Mart location listed on this site has been closed for about 10 years now and a Wal-Mart SuperCenter was built less than a mile away. Despite my numerous times of informing them of the change, nothing's happened. I've even tried to add the Thomasville, NC Wal-Mart SuperCenter location, but still I've seen nothing.

Is the forum ever gonna fix the fact that the "last unread post" button on any given thread only works if the thread is only one page long? On any other thread, it goes to the very first post, period.

No one has brought this to my attention before. I didn't realize that this wasn't working. Can you show me some examples and tell me exactly what it is doing so that I can look into it further? Thanks Valandar!

Hey!
I have reposted this over here hoping for a resolve? ;)

:D

I would have thought that once you un-subscribe from a thread, that thread should be less of an importance and should remain at the bottom of your list "View your posts".

Is there a way, whilst logged in to your account, to sort your list of subscribed threads so that only the ones you are currently subscribed to are listed rather than every thread you have posted on? :-?

Thanks if anyone can help? >:oP

You're clicking on the "View Your Posts" link, which leads to here: search.php?search_id=egosearch

You actually need to go to your user control panel, here: ucp.php

Then click here: ucp.php?i=main&mode=subscribed

At the top of the page, it says
Manage subscriptions

Below is a list of forums and topics you are subscribed to. You will be notified of new posts in either. To unsubscribe mark the forum or topic and then press the Unwatch marked button.


That will remove it from your subscripted threads, but because you posted in them, at all, there will be a record of them and if they're being posted in, they will show up in your list of previous posts.

As for sorting, I don't believe there is a feature for that at this time.

Okay.

1 ) The " Generations / Classics / Universe / Reveal The Shield haul thread " currently has a brown piece of paper icon right in front of the thread title, meaning it has had posts in it since I last looked at that thread. It currently has 89 pages. If I click that brown piece of paper icon, it rakes me to the very first post on the very first page, just like I had clicked on the thread title. This is not what is supposed to happen.

On the other hand

2 ) The "Have you ever came home to this? " thread also has a brown piece of paper icon right in front of the thread title, mening it has had posts in it since I last hit the "Mark Topics Read" link. It only has one page. When I click that link, it takes me directly to post #4 in the thread, as when I last clicked the MTR link it had only three posts - and thus the first unread post in that thread is #4. This IS what is supposed to happen.

This behavious means that unless I am very fascinated in a given thread, I tend not to read threads more than one page long, as it's too much trouble (and I don't usually have much time on these forums) to try to remember which page I had most recently looked at, and then find the first new post by hand.

And, umm... I mentioned this more than once earlier in this thread...

... but I can't find those posts. I KNOW I brought it up right after the changeover to this forum software... :shock: :-?
