There was a time when this site wouldn't work properly on my Wii Internet browser due to the memory running out for any Seibertron webpage.

Then, at some point, all issues ceased, so I figured the problem was fixed.

Recently, however, the problem has resumed, so now it's not working on my Wii again.

Though, I don't regularly use my Wii to browse the Internet, but there are still some times in which I've no choice, so it is an inconvenience.

So it's been confirmed as removed. Oh well. At least I know it's not just something specific to my briowser, or something.

Now that this has been confirmed as a policy decision and not a bug it is probably best to discuss here instead buddy :)

Trying to add store location to list?

Postby mattj972 » Wed Oct 17, 2012 1:49 pm

I'm in North Texas, trying to get the Toys R Us in Allen, TX added to the toy sightings list. Filled out form, even sent an email to seibertron. Does anyone know a way to get the specific store added? I know a lot of transformers fans and collectors in our area and we all have wondered why this isn't on the list. I would just like to add it since I stop by there 1-2 a week on way home and would like to give my fellow collectors in area heads up and contribute to community. Tons of GDO exclusives there, MP thundercrackers and great generations and transformers prime selection.

TOYS"R"US/BABIES"R"US - ALLEN [7812]

170 E. STACY ROAD BUILDING 2250 ALLEN TX 75002 P: (972)678-4958

Any post I make has the time set 5 hours behind the actual time, which sometimes causes my newer posts to appear on the page before the later posts I'm posting after.

Like, it is currently Tue Oct 23, 2012 1:39am, but my post reads "Mon Oct 22, 2012 8:38 pm" instead. :???:

I checked my user control panel and all my time and time zone info is correct there.

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.
