These are featured galleries due to the revelation that the Stunticons will be used for the next Botcon set. They are not always random, they usually highlight the newest galeries.

This is what I'm seeing.


1. It's still the size of a normal YouTube video, just cut off by your resolution.

2. How big is your monitor that 1024x768 is the optimal resolution? What, 15" maybe? Anything larger and you'd want 1280x1024.

19".

And in the past, when the YouTube tags were working normally, whenever I'd embed a YouTube video, it would automatically shrink down to fit within the width of their forum posts.

This one, however, does not resize itself and instead exceeds its post's width.

19"? I know for a fact that no 19" monitor uses 1024x768 as it's optimal resolution. You should be using 1280x1024, or if you're using a widescreen monitor, 1440x900. As it is now, you aren't taking full advantage of that monitor.

It doesn't exceed the width of the post for me. My monitor uses 1600x900, though.

I adjusted the resolution on my monitor. It's fine now.

Oh, hey! Now I can go back and fix all the dead [youtube][/youtube] tags in my Top 20 Greatest Japanese TF Opening Themes thread. Another item on my "To do" list. :grin:

I've been having a weird issue. Occasionally around 10:30 p.m. (Eastern Time) onward I have trouble staying logged in. I log in, go to the forums, post a reply, and I'm signed out again. Then I go sign in again and the cycle repeats. But it only happens very late at night, which I find strange.

Hi,
When I tried to send 2 PMs, after I hit 'submit', they went to my outbox, but haven't shown up in my sent items.

Will my recipient have received my PMs, or do I need to take some other action? Thanks.

Problem resolved. I was on a super slow (think 'dial-up') connection and that somehow affected the synchronous duplexing.

Add store feature?

I've tried a few times to add a store location within a given chain. It never works. I get this error message. Is this feature broken, or am I doing something wrong? I've looked for threads that discuss this problem but none seem to contain a solution. Everyone simply stopped trying.

Add a Store to the Toy Sightings Section

There were errors processing this form:
\n

\n
Column 'is_active' cannot be null\n
The database could not be updated.\n

\n

Use the form below to add a store in your local region that is not listed in this section.
Want: Universe Jetfire.

Have: Too many to list.

This is not really a serious problem but its annoying. I cant get my phone and computer to remember each other when Im using this site on them. When I surf Seiberton on my Phone I have to login to do so. Then when I go to my laptop I have to login again. Then later I'll go back to my phone again and have to login again....and so on back and fourth. The site wont keep me logged in. I always click the "remember my login automatically" button too and it never does. Is there a way to not have this happen?

And furthermore..... cant someone make a Seiberton phone app to help intergrade this website to mobile use. In todays Mobile world this would help the site become more accessible on different devices. It can be a pain trying to access this site from my phone. I have a touch screen Android so I have to Zoom in super close just tap a link, and there are a A LOT of tiny little links all over Seibertron.com. Its kind of a mobile mess sometimes. Im always accidently taping something else. And trying to type can hit or miss sometimes.
Im I the only one? :???:

Yeah, a lot of the smileys seem to not show up as the one you click but something else. Like I click "smiley stroking his chin like he's in thought" and instead I get "crooked mouth smiley" :-?

I don't think this is a particularly huge problem but since the site was down for maintenance the forums have been bahaving unusual. When logging in to discuss a particular topic I am taken to the forums homepage instead of automatically directed to the 'POST A REPLY' page for that topic. Also, even though I have the 'Notify me when a reply is posted' option ticked, I am not getting email notifications like I used to. Is there something I should be doing or is this an error with the site?

Please advise.

The news RSS feed is pushing out the top 25 news items repeatedly every thirty minutes. AFAIK until today it has only every pushed out new items, but now is pushing out the most recent 25 items regardless of if it has already done so.
