  • Can't do this, that don't work

    A few days ago, I tried to create a mini-tut for painting.
    All I needed was one text block with 3 attached pictures.
    Can't be done here.

    Now, today, I get a message that my in box is full, so I rush right over, and what do I find? Nothing, no message, no nothin. It was supposed to have been from Danny. A week or so ago, I got one that said Sharon or someone had PM'ed me, so I cleaned out the box and nothing. Another message lost in the cyber toilet.
    Also the various places, like my own threads don't get updated properly. I have to wait til I get there, then refresh to get the latest posts. Somethings amiss.

    Just a shot in the dark, but did you empty everything ? You know, "sent items", "tracking" or whatever it's called?

      I think so, no messages were visible. BTW, I had to update this thread after I got here from new posts, to see your post. Shouldn't that have happened by fact that it was in new posts?

        If you clicked on "view new posts" or whatever it's called, it should show up. If you just used the "Back" button after viewing another thread, it wouldn't show up. There does seem to be some type of problem with the new postings, because sometimes a post shows up as new, when it is actually a month or so old. I've been using "Last 24 hours" in the slide out menu lately. It seems to work better for me, but time will tell.

          PM full


          The PM function has 2 folders...

          "In box" -- which you see when you open the PM window...

          and "Sent Messages" which requires you to make a selection from the "Jump to Folder" menu before the contents are displayed.

          You'll probably find a whole bunch of PMs you've sent previously there.

          RE: Not seeing posts / updates right away.

          Refresh my memory. Which browser are you using? I think you told me once it's not Internet Explorer.

            Opera 5, but I've been using it for a long time, and it worked fine before. I know it has some limitations. My vs. doesn't have Java, I hate Java. Hope it dies.
            I'll ck the mail.

              Worked fine before... As in, before the recent change to the new forum/gallery? (There may have been some underlying software changes during that transistion.)

              I'm trying to narrow down "what changed" between when it worked and when it stopped working.

                TIP: How did I miss that thread?
                by Doug Nelson
                The way the forum tracks which threads you've read and which ones you haven't is a bit complicated, and far from foolproof. Frequently it will think you've read posts you actually haven't.

                The primary culpret is a restriction to the forum software that's necessary to keep it from overwhelming...

                Search Problems
                by Jakaleena
                Some new weirdness for me here that just started this afternoon.

                When I do a "Last 24 Hours" or "New Posts" search, it shuts my browser down immediately after the "Your search is in progress" message.

                It happens in both IE6 and Netscape exactly...

                Wrong time on posts?
                by Ed_L
                Has anyone else noticed that when you check the "Last 24 hours" or "View new posts", quite often the times of the posts are not correct? I'm not talking about people responding to polls, but actually postings. I see what appears to be a new post, only to find out that the last post...

                New Posts feature
                by Caitlin
                I have found the New Posts feature invaluable - and is basically how I access the forum now. HOWEVER it doesn't seem completely accurate. I notice I'm missing out on a number of posts - for instance there was a new post in the April Contest this morning, but it didnt come up on the New Posts list. ...

                Threads going unnoticed
                by DJ Dubovsky
                I know I'm not the only one who has noticed that every now and then someone will post a thread that will go totally unnoticed. I don't know exactly why this happens but I thought I would bring it to everyones attention. If you post a thread and notice no one answers it or no on responds to one of...
