Default Spring Checkup

Just so we can make life easier on the site....does anyone have any problems in any area on the site?

If there are problems,by all means let us know and we will rectify the matter.

Are you not recieving private messages as you think you should?
Please check and see if your "inbox" is at its limit.

Are you having trouble uploading from your computer or alternative sources?
Please contact either Tim or How to troubleshoot a.s.a.p.

Have you experienced any "spam" as a result from participating on this site?
You shouldn't. Thats an area that I have taken charge of and hopefully none get through. If you do,let me know a.s.a.p.

Thanks in advance....

HB

Howard,

I have trouble locating threads once they've slipped off 'Today's Posts'. I believe others do as well which is why many threads die rather quickly.

Yours truly,

Tom Wescott

Tom and Deb:

Let me suggest this then...

1. If a thread goes a.w.o.l. and you have posted on it at least once....go to your user cp function.

2. Go to subscribed threads and look up that thread in the box on the right and then go to it.

3. You can also go to the function....'find all posts made by your name'. This should fix it.

4. If you know that,for example,Stan Russo,started a thread or the thread that you cannot locate....go to his name in the 'members list'....click on his name and check the function..."find all posts made by Stan Russo'.

Please let me know if this works,you two. Sorry for the inconvienience and thanks for bringing this up. I get lost myself sometimes,because I forget what section the thread was in originally....

Hi Howard

I also find this type of software a bit frustrating in that I also feel I am missing threads with important information that time out too fast. In other words, the main search is for "new posts" but often there have been new posts but because it is an existing thread, they will time out and not be brought to my attention. Does that make sense? I'm not as interested in a new thread... well of course I would like to know about new threads as well... but new posts to a new or old thread in the last 1, 3, or 7 days would be more useful. I don't know if this type of site has the capacity to allow us to view what new posts might have been made in the last 1, 3, or 7 days. Any thoughts or guidance would be appreciated.

Chris

Chris, I always go to quick links and click today's posts.

Robert

Dear Chris....

Robert's suggestion is the best I can think of. I'm usually here every day,so it was never an issue with me. Maybe Tim has an alternate idea.

See if what Robert mentioned will help you out if you get a chance.

Thanks !

Hi Robert

I have just come back on. I know we both made recent posts but I come across the screen that says:

Sorry, there are no new threads to view.

You may search for threads updated during the previous 24 hours, here.


One thing that would be useful would be if the previous 24 hours option would be available permanently. Maybe there is a way to call that up at any time, I don't know, but I don't think so. I just feel that as Tom says, things get posted and buried quickly so we may miss out on something important.

Chris

I assume that this is equivalent to "Today's Posts" on the "Quick Links" menu, which does bring up posts from yesterday provided they are less than 24 hours old.

However, I'm not sure this feature is functioning correctly. For me, it brings up only items in the "General Information" and "Special Events" sections, not those in the "Discussion" section.

Correction. If I'm logged in, "Today's Posts" brings up posts from all sections. If I'm not logged in, it omits those from the "Discussion" section. Is it meant to do that?
