    Great work on the new message board. I've no clue how difficult it is to do these things, but I am impressed. My problem is that I can log in and I'm able to post one time to a thread, and then I get sent to the White Room. There might be a note on top of the wall at the left and I'm sorry, but I got out of there so quick I've forgotten what it said. Maybe make it blue? Blue is nice, reminiscent of blue skies and rainbows and sunbeams from heaven?

    Then...a few times, I've hit the "back" button...am sent to the White Room again...hit "back"...and seems like once or twice out of half a dozen or more, I'm directed to the page/thread I wish to view. But I am no longer logged in, as there's no "post" box at the bottom. Yet, when I return to the main page, I'm listed up at the top along with others online now. (I'm glad the robots have yet to find us!)

    So...I try to scrub my cookies each and every day..but out-of-sight, out-of-mind. I do the restart so on so forth. At times, it is like I'm using Windows97 and I'm on the old dial-up I started with years ago...but we're on DSL (one of the slower DSL options)...looks like I have Windows7....use Firefox.

    Anyway, that's the story. (Is there music playing in the White Room? I ought to turn my speakers on...maybe I'd get to like it there?)

    Yes. A page that is all white w/a note at the top, short, not many words...in blue.
    (Tried to post this a few seconds/minute ago...hit "post reply" and the gray box appeared top right...revolving light behind the three upright black bars?...forgot to turn my speakers on...wait one...I could use some Cream 'bout now.)

    Looks like you should be set now. Had to tick a box on the Admin side to make sure you showed up in the Registered group. If that doesn't do it, let us know.

    Sounds like a plan...heh! Still figuring my way around. I found where you can change your status from "active...well-known" so on so forth...and was able to change that to something a bit more appropriate. Looked again just now for that and could not find how I got there before. Too, considered changing..."i'm in the jailhouse [the white room?] now" to a location that one can see on Google maps...they have no clue where the jailhouse is located...but the route to that change is lost to me...alas.

    To make those changes hover the cursor over your name (top right of page) the drop-down menu will appear, click on Personal Details. The Status Message is the first option and you will be able to also change your location a little further down the page.

    Code doesn't seem to work in the profile area at all, I've only had success with links.

    No bbcodes or smiles work in the profile area, and probably never will.

    Why is there a double post in games and chattery teeth? Just wondering?
  14. FlakeNoir

    FlakeNoir Beta/Moderator Moderator

    Sorry, I'm not quite sure what you mean--do you mean there is one specific message that has been posted twice, (in one thread) or has a thread been repeated somewhere? (If so please can you post a link so that we can fix it?)
    Or are you meaning, why is there a sub-category for 'Games' in the Chattery Teeth area? (The answer to that is because there were so many different game-type threads popping up, it's now much easier for people to track them.)

    Then I guess we will go with it's easier to track a sub category. Just seems odd that if you post in games, then you also show up as a double post in Chattery Teeth. However, if that is the goal to make it easier for people to track, I'm good with that.

    I think I must be missing something (sorry...) I'm not seeing any double posting?

    Ahhh, I think I see what you mean--there isn't actually a double post. Although it looks like two (from the 'home page') it's actually just one area. It's just that the Games area is a category within the Chattery Teeth area. (Like the Dark Tower threads are within the Novels area.)

    I have a very anal, tiny little issue with the mobile site. On every single site I have been on with my phone, it auto zooms and reformats the the text to fit the width of the screen. This site does the reformatting, but doesn't auto zoom. It used to, but not for a while. I know, it is a small issue that is fixed by simply double tapping the screen, but I just thought I'd ask about it. Here is a screen shot.

    No to detract from the main purpose of this thread (sorry Jordan!) but that is a cool screen shot!

    This might just be a problem for iPad/iOS/Safari users (or it could just be my iPad) but there's a time lag between when I type a letter and it's appearance in the message window. Is anyone else having this problem?
