    Just noticed something out of whack:

    In the Project Runs forum, I get the following message "(You have insufficient privileges to post here.)"

    ...I should add that I AM able to reply to existing threads in the Project Runs forum, I just can't start a new thread at the moment.

    More than a few have had that problem, but Art is pretty swift in taking care of it.

    Is there no longer a limit on "conversations"?

    Today I noticed that members who were banned no longer display banned under their usernames. I did see the ‘Gone but not forgotten” banner, so thought I’d bring it to your attention.

    We do still have to rework to look of banned members. It is on the punch list.

    Why won’t my pictures load and take ages to down load
    Please tell me what to do
    I’ve clicked on the pic logo
    Clicked on upload a file
    Added a photo
    Loaded 100%
    Error not loaded

    It’s all sorted now they are loading, it’s fixed itself
    And I love the new size pics

    do the alerts only stay active for so long? if so can i suggest like a 12/24hr timeline, i use that alert icon to show me new posts on threads im following etc, and if i dont see the notice i move on, ive missed a bunch of information because of disappearing alerts

    Is it bad that the only thing I'm really taking from this is I can now be tagged? Lol

    Hey there:)
    I purchased premium membership literally a week or 2 before the host change. It seems that I lost the membership. Can you take a look at it?
    All the best

    This is a "can't please all the people all the time" issue. Earlier in this thread, someone was complaining about Alerts lasting too long! Unviewed alerts should be retained indefinitely. Viewed alters are retained for 7 days in your alerts list. Viewed alerts are retained for 4 hours in your Alters popup.

    One thing I miss on this forum (and all forums I'm on that have switched to XenForo) is the ease of marking a forum as 'Read'.
    You now click on 'Mark Forums Read' (which takes an extra step to even find on mobile...) and a popup appears asking you to confirm you meant to press that, and asking if I want to mark this sub forum, or the entire forum as read.

    Just curious, even if you guys don't want to do it, is there a way to make it a simple 'clicked and it's done, for the sub-forum I'm viewing' like the old forum software? Seems weird that XenForo made this simple, and heavily used task, so much more complicated...

    Also, when on the main forum screen, double-clicking the little icons next to a sub forum used to mark it as 'Read'. Is there a way to do that in XenForo? (Again, even if you don't want to on the RPF, that I understand, just curious if it's even an option to set that up like other forum software...)

    Fortunately I've gotten used to it due to other forums switching over, so I can live with it... :)

    There is a way to add the double-click to mark forums read... but not in this version of the software. We are actually one version behind on the software. Now that we are almost entirely done with the change over, we are testing for the next upgrade and once that is complete, we can potentially add that functionality in.

    Another significant move last night on the server side. Should see greater stability and even faster load times!

    Whats the glitch? Placement? (I dont see the ad in context? where was it placed?)

    or are you referring to the 'old' dates for the 'sale'?

    I apologize if this has been asked, but on the old forum when I went to my threads list, any thread that had a new response would show the thread title in bold, so you new it had something new. I’m not seeing that here, is there something similar that will indicate when looking at my threads ones that have an unread new post?

    If you click at the top on "watched threads", it will ONLY show your watched threads with new posts. Once you click and read them, they disappear off the list.
    If you mean clicking on "Replica Props" and showing the threads, then yes, the new ones are in bold blue, and the old ones are in non-bold blue. I have already mentioned this one, that it's not pronounced enough, and was told they might address it in the future.

    This is the old chart.....what is the new chart ? Or where is it so I can visit it ?
    I have over 2000, but am not a Master Member, so I assume the chart has changed.
    Thank you.

    I think we may be talking about two different things. I don't have any watched threads, I don't use that function and never watch threads. I was referring to the old forum when I clicked on "Find all threads by azheat01", I would see a list of all MY started threads, and the ones that had new posts were all in bold. Made it easier to see which threads had new responses. Here I click on "Find all threads by azheat01", and it brings them all up, but the threads that have new responses aren't bold, so I have no idea. I don't want to have to start at the top and go through ALL my threads to see which ones have new responses. Unless someone quotes my post and I get an alert, I won't know without actually going to that thread.

    Well.... that took a lot longer than expected... but we got the old gallery over! WHOHOO! This was the last major component that needed to be imported. It is a bit of a mess and needs some work, but the data is here and that is what matters. Still got cleanup to do and a lot of little tweaks, but I am pretty happy to have this step done!

    The only remaining element that we haven't pulled over is the seller reputation. That is still a ways out unfortunately. It is out of my hands for now, but we will get there!

    It’s how the ad embedded itself into the attachment slot. Here’s another one that completely covered up Funky’s post, making it unreadable until I refreshed the page:

    Sorry if I’m bothering people by posting these, but I thought it was worth showing how ads embed themselves just about anywhere.

    I dont see the URL in the screenshot... are you on the https url?

    The first screenshot had an odd sate on it.. like before the move? or any tweaks were done?

    Is there a link to that thread? I will turn off my CSS styles and see if they inject or show for me as well..

    OK, I swear I searched for this, but haven't found the answer. Do I have to host my images outside the RPF now to post them in my thread? It use to be you clicked in the picture icon, selected the image from your computer, and uploaded it to the thread. Now when I click on the image, it's asking for a URL?

    I was just in my profile page and noticed that I'm no longer considered a male, which last time I looked I was. I'm now considered unspecified. I tried to change this and got an error message saying I needed to fill out all required fields. This was something I had set properly on the old site. Can this be fixed?

    Gender did not get carried over (Art will have to look into that).

    As far as updating the Personal Details page, you need to make sure that the "First Name" is filled out. If it is blank, you will get an error as that is required information. The field is blank for members that joined prior to it becoming a required field and as such, you will not be able to update that page unless you fill in your first name.

    First, a HUUUUUUUUUGE thanks to the mods who've put in a ton of work. I guess the idea of a darker background so that text/ etc pop a bit better is not doable? Also, still having to sign in each and every time I come on to the site. Cleared out the cookies/ etc., but I can be on the site twice in the same day, and still have to sign in.

    Hey Art, do you happen to know the answer to this. Posted before but no one has chimed in yet with the correct info.

    It use to be when I clicked to show a list of all threads I created, the ones with new responses since the last time I was on would be bold. Doesn't seem to be the case with the new platform. Is that just an option this software doesn't have? It's kind of frustrating not knowing which threads I've created have new responses without going down the list and actually clicking on each one and checking. Just a few days ago I clicked on the first thread listed and there was nothing new, but I clicked on the second thread and it did, I just had no way of knowing. You would think the one with the new responses would be listed first, which helps a little, but that wasn't the case. The only way I think I would know is if someone quoted me. I noticed this same issue over on TDH when that was upgraded some time ago.

    For the record, I'm talking about when I click on my profile and go to "Information", and then click on "Find all threads by azheat01".

    Sorry to ask again, I know there are more important things than this right now.......

    Good question. I don't know the answer, but I will find out.

    This is just a quess... but I suspect the suggestion is going to be that you folllow your threads and then you will get an alert when one is posted to... but let me find out before we move forward.

    Hi Art!

    Weird things happening with my account. Seems I lost posting privileges in the junkyard "runs" section (can't see the button any longer), but my account still shows "premium member" status, and also... I can't seem to search for any old posts! I have a few runs going in the junkyard but when I search, only ONE comes up, no matter what word I use or if I search for posts "by me" or not. Tried logging out and back in again, but nothing changed. Maybe a caching error or something going on?

    Hi, I know you are probably busy with more important fixes, but noticed that I cannot post in my own WTB thread to bump it, like on the old forum. If that is intentional, then that's how it is, but if it's supposed to be how it used to be, then I thought I should at least mention it.

    Cheers.
