Quote (Richard Simons @ Sep. 29 2007,10:32)
For about a year I was unable to contribute (including contacting the admin) because, although being listed as logged in, it would tell me I was logged out. The only way I found around the problem was to get a new password every time and to re-log in, and that was not reliable.

About a week ago the problem vanished. I do not know if the computer had a belch and removed an internal blockage or if someone here fixed something but, anyway, thanks.

I had that same problem, but I emailed steve and, presumably, he fixed it for me because the problem went away.

On one of the occasions when I was able to get on I posted here but I never saw a response so I assumed it was unfixable.

(But thanks to composing this, I've found out why the http key was not working.)

The software creates problems with accounts sometimes. Our apologies. Email Wesley when that kind of thing occurs. I don't have any ability to fiddle with that directly.

Steve - I tried e-mailing Wesley but I couldn't do it through this site as it was always insisting I was not logged on. As I recall, at the time getting a new password was not working either. It never allowed me to make more than a single post at the best of times. I found another email address for Wes somewhere but it could easily have been defunct as I got no reply.

Although it was frustrating at times, especially when someone was posting idiotic statements, I don't feel upset with anyone as I've done some programming and I know how difficult it can be to sort out problems.

Sorry that you had that amount of problems. If anyone else has those kind of problems contact Wesley through his other website http://austringer.net/ A friend of mine had a problem where his account wasn't approved for a month or so. It would be nice if everything worked automatically but bugs and spammers create problems. BTW, has anyone noticed that you no longer get that "You are posting too soon" message? We used to enforce a 2-minute waiting period between comments to hinder spammers, but that's been turned off for a while now.

Moderation may be strained over the next few days. There was a hugenormous fire at my apartment complex and I found out a few hours a go a friend was hurt jumping off her balcony.

You should see this building. It is no more. Just a bunch of ashy metal crap left. She's going to be okay, but she's pretty banged up.

No idea what made it go up so fast. It was such an inferno that it melted the fronts of 8 nearby cars.

There's a little row of trees obscuring the view from my apartment. On the other side is a near building, and a far building where my friend lived. My phone is down momentarily while VirginMobile's customer support fixes a glitch in my account, so last night when I saw the raging fire I was sure it was in the near building because the flames were so huge, it couldn't possibly be at the far building, and there was no phone call to indicate trouble. I was horror-struck today to casually mosey over to her place to take back Harry Potter 7 to her, to find her building a pile of ashes. I found out she was okay, her dad drove here from Ohio, but it was disconcerting to know that at 2 am, while i casually had a cigarette and watched the flames, she was out behind the building with broken ankles and then getting wheeled into an ambulance. We're going to take her some teriyaki Beef Jerkey --her favorite comfort food-- at UNC hospital tomorrow.

I just came from the hospital. It's much worse than I thought. Won't walk again for six months and several surgeries kind of worse. I'll be spending most of the week at the hospital.

I'm really sorry to hear about your friend, Steve.  The whole thing sounds awful.  Hopefully she'll heal quickly, and it's nice that you live close by in case she needs anything.

Thanks. The whole thing's just cruel. This happened shortly after she got back into town Saturday from some 5 mile race somewhere. After several more surgeries this week she's going to have to move back to Ohio and learn to walk again. I'm not ashamed to admit that I have some selfish grief that I won't see her for quite a while after that. And now I'll stop hijacking the Board Mechanics thread.

Just for fun Rich, try going to your account options and changing your skin.  I was just playing with the skins and noticed that some stuff is different from the "Standard Iconboard" to the "AE Custom Skin" (like the little diamond question marks come back in the custom skin).

Functionality really shouldn't be affected by which skin you choose, but stranger things have happened.

(EDIT - testing the edit function in the custom skin)

Wes,

Hate to bug you with this, but my "Move to the BW" button, while very lovely, isn't functioning and your inbox is full.

I'm getting a message that reads

Quote
"You do not have permission to carry out that function

You are currently logged in as Lou FCD "


message when I try to use it.

Changing your skin worked?  Well I'll be darned.

Glad I could help, Rich.  The girls send their love.

'cept it'd probably immediately zap everything I've ever said about UD, and that would suck.  There's a few funny ones in there I'd hate to lose.

Thanks - but sadly it's broken again.

here's the thread I was going to start, parked.

It's an oldie I re-discovered. Decent break over sweet dreams. They change the hook in places and use lennox's voice as in instrument proper, so I think they do enough. I rate this

Well, do not despair, young Grasshopper.

Wes is still monkeying around trying to figure out what's up with me and the BW button, so he may have changed something that caused the re-breakage of your Sexi Hawt Thang.  You may find it rights itself as time wears on and adjustments are made.

In the meantime, I'd be happy to copy and paste that to a new thread for you, if you'd care to give me a title/subtitle.  You can feel free to PM me as well, with new threads/comment edits/whatever until you're all straightened out.

Gee, there's a user called "escortservLatvian" logged on right now! However, I am an optimist about human nature and refuse to believe that he is a spammer who wants to tell us about this amazing new deal on generic Viagra. I eagerly await his observations about the politically charged issues about ID and the teaching of evolution.[/snark]

Or a variant of it that's spelled something like "v|i_a.g+r-a".

For some reason, the email spammers stuck various punctuation marks between the letters of the word in the email subject line. Huh.

I have a question mark where my edit button should be. This is annoying. RT has the same problem, I do believe.

But people who do have edit privlege get the question mark to the left of the "edit" button. Or at least that's what I see from here, so the question mark isn't replacing the button.

I can vouch for that, although now my question mark is between the BW button and the delete button.

I just ignore it, although in a perfect world it shouldn't be there.  It's probably just a stray character at the beginning of the code that adds those standard buttons.  I'm assuming that the BW button is custom code that appears before the standard buttons code.
