East Dulwich (Mobile) Forum

Ask Admin

I have a query from a friend who has recently tried to join the forum.

Hernehiller - would like to join the forum, but is still waiting confirmation of the set up. He applied 2 weeks ago.

Could you look into this as he seems think it's because he's from Herne Hill area, which I'm sure isn't the case, and he would like to change from a lurker to a poster
Tell 'em I ain't got no problem with peeps from Herne Hill

User: hernehiller Status: Pending confirmation Confirmation email sent: 12/06/2007 04:30PM

They need to click on the link in the email sent by us to approve their account. Let me know if there is still a problem and I will reset their account, best to send an email to me using the link at the bottom of the page so I can deal with them directly.

Regards

Is it just me or have we lost the bold/italic/underline etc toolbar/functions since the latest update?

I sincerely hope my thread re single and over 50 didn't cause concern. I am new to this forum and merely hoped to start maybe a friendship coffee meeting or pub meeting. Many thanks.
Do not worry, it did not cause concern, the forum is meant to be useful and fun for everyone. Good luck.

Talking to God

Are you out there great Administrator? Please give us a word of wisdom - English, Spanish or even Gaelic - any word would be fine ......

Bless us oh Great ONE
You would think that if he was going to talk it would be on a Sunday.
Or is that his busiest day winking smiley

I'm having trouble posting on the "Should kids have TVs in their rooms" thread. Won't let me post. Any ideas please?
Do you have the words special-ised/ism/ist in the text? this stops messgages being posted (see the first point on the FAQ page)

HI there

How do I post a photo of a drum kit on the thread about "drum kit needed"...I can't seem to figure it out.

thanks
Is the photo a file on your computer or a picture up on t'interweb?
Its on file on my computer
click the 'attach a file' above the posting text box and upload your photo (make sure it's below 614kb, so resize it if it's not.
Then if you want to also display it, once it's loaded, go to your post, click on the attachment and view the picture.
Copy the full address in the address bar http://eastdulwichforum/something.jpg
then go back and edit your post and click the insert image url button, copying in said full address.
This should do the trick.
Thank you so much, but don't take it personally if I can't do it!!! I will try.
I can't seem to post on the emenies of reason thread. I've just written a post, but when I click on Post Message nothing happened. I've tried a few times and refreshed in between, but it hasn't appeared. Will it come up three times in a minute?
Is this the earths energy working against me?
soci-alist, specia-lism etc?

anything with cia-lis in it will be blocked. Probably hardcoded into the software, a bit of a pain, but hyphenate yuor word in question and you should be ok
Taken from our Help& FAQs page:

0.5) My message will not post, after pressing the post message button I just see my message again
Yes, this is weird one and we're working on it. If you message has the words special-ised, special-ist, special-ism in it (without the hyphens) then it gets rejected so please replace that word with something else, perhaps expert or expertise.

let me know if you still can't post after that

Weird.
I thought being a specia-list registrar in emergency medicine was only dirty on the conventional vomit-on-trousers way.
Will try again later with appropriate censorship!
"anything with cia-lis in it will be blocked"

Why? Is there some underground porn movement I'm missing out on?
It's not blocked by admin, it's built into the software, I'm guessing as a spam filter.
Is it possible to have an option to display messages in reverse date order, ie newest first?
I've emailed a couple of times about placing an ad on the site, but haven't had a reply. Would be good if you could send me the advertising rates. thank you!
Apologies about that, you were sent details 19/03/2007 11:48 but I will ask Mark to send you more up-to-date details.

Dear Admin,

are you, like, the Fat Controller ? Ha Ha. Or Big Brother ? Or the Jade Emperor of the Seventh Heaven ?

Seriously :

a) When I went - finally - to respond to a thread I had started I was not shown the user-names of contributors. Are these deleted at a certain point ?

b) Why do the headers of certain but not all threads say 'Go to page yada-yada-whatever ?'

c) I notice my real name was left off my profile - by me, I guess. Is there any point adding it on. I want to use my nom de balloon for postings.

Thanks,

- Lee Scoresby
Lee

a) No. No messages are deleted unless they have been removed because they have broken the rules. Tell me which message you are talking about and I will look into it.

b) If there are more than 30 messages on a page then a new page is created, rather like pages in a book. So instead of having a really, really long page you flip between pages.

c) Adding your real name is up to you, there's no actual benefit such as getting a free ice cream but you decide if you want people to know your real name.

regards

Bah - my 'new' threads have gone blue instead of red, and I'm all confused now.
A long time mystery, but I think they are red if you've not seen that thread since your last login, and blue if you have... It could also have something to do with using the Back button... Seems to work that way for me anyway.
thanks Keef
