I hope everyone is enjoying the new chat room and discussion board. There are several new options and things you can do to personalize the system.

There are a few minor glitches we are still trying to figure out but hopefully nothing that is creating a major problem for anyone.

If you will post any questions you have or problems you encounter on this thread we will be checking regularly the next several days and addressing problems and trying to answer questions.

Thanks to everyone for your patience and support...Hopefully it won't be long now until the new web site is up as well...

Brent Turpin

Hi Brent,

I have a question about the avatars. I see that mine and a few others look a bit funny, stretched actually, so I went to change it to a new one, but there are lots less to choose from than there used to be. Does mine look funny because it was copied from the old server but not replaced? It's really not a big deal, but I was curious.

Thanks........Trish

One more thing, I can't seem to find the emotion icons.

Never mind. I guess you have to use the "reply" button, rather than just the quick reply and they're all there.

We have noticed the avatar issue...the previous site linked to several pages of stock avatars and for reasons not quite known yet those options did not transfer....we are working on fixing this.

the icons do not show up on the "quick reply" option. You have to click on the "reply" button at the end of a post and then you have the icon options. I will check and see if there is another way to get to them or use them.

brent.

Any chance we can go to larger signature files? 100 letters is really too short.

Ditto to what Nobby said. Mine is currently 203 and was converted as such. I can't update my profile because it's telling me my signature is too long.

P.S. GREAT JOB ON THE CONVERSION!

Are there different post indicators that would stand out more when there are new posts?

If not, can you use them? I have the capability to make them....

Is the Search function one of the things being worked on? Looks like it's broken. I get this error message:

"We cannot proceed.
You cannot make another search at this time. Please try again in a few minutes."

The search function had a timer setting which limited searches to one per user each 60 seconds. This was done in the past so as not to slow down the site. This should no longer be an issue and we have removed the timer limitation.

Let me know if you encounter any problems

Thanks, Brent. The profile update works with my 203 character sig now.

On the Search, I was searching for known thread and it didn't find it. It was a thread from before when the old forum seach function there got broken, so maybe the old threads past that "broke" date aren't searchable here in the new forum either? I'm guessing there's some kind of "index" that was brought over from the old forum?

EDIT: Disregard the above. THE SEARCH WORKS! YEAH! I negelected to set the option to go back further than 1 week. Yea, Search works!

There have been some comments about the information boxes on the left of the screen...Whether these boxes display is an option on user preferences.

go to "my stuff", "my Preferences", and answer yes or no to the question "turn off left column"

Thanks,
Brent.

Thanks Brent

Is there some way to see the PMs you have sent but haven't been answered back? In the old forum they were split between sent and received. It looks like we're only able to see the received ones now.

I echo Eddie's concern about the PM's. I really would like to be able to see the sent PM's even if I cannot edit them.

OK then, here's a question. Why has my member number changed? Not a huge issue, but I was rather attached to the one I had! It's not only my number. Other men who's number I used to know have had a change as well...

Strange... \:\)

OK, I don't have any clue what was wrong but it's now working. It told me my firewall settings were wrong therefor I couldn't post, however I had made not changes to my system.

Very weird

Thanks John. Even as a little girl I always loved eore. He was always so sad, but loved by everyone in the Wood anyway. I bet Freud would have a field day with that one, huh? ;\)

Brent, I get confused by the new pm layout too. Maybe just adding colors to differentiate between sent and received pm's would help.

ROCK ON......Trish

One more thing about the pm's; you don't see what has been read or not either. I kinda liked that feature.

Hey Gang,

I’m glad I checked in because the signature was an issue for me too ‘cause mine’s a link most of the space was taken by code and I had to dump Bob Marley for a simple Curtis and I was sad until now.

I had the firewall thing happen this morning so I logged off and back in and I was fine…And I’m confident I won’t have to make a habit of that in the future.

I like the new pm system because it’s more like a private forum area where you can edit or even post to your own ‘sent’ items and you have the reply count there. I think the only thing missing is the ability to see if they’ve been read.

I’m digging the cool new avatar choices!

I like the shout box but I started clearing some out because I thought I was only sort of deleting ‘read’ items from my screen but I have a sneaking suspicion that as an admin I may have been deleting them for everyone… so I stopped.

I know BT is up 24hrs a day on this and in chat getting feedback and fixing bugs. Change is hard but I’m glad we’re moving forward!

Cheers!

PS if we could get a spell check in here that would be the icing on the cake 'cause I have to cut and paste from word (except my laptop which has google spell check on the toolbar)

the chat room is way too resource intensive for my computer. i now cannot use it.. can you think about getting a less bulky version that those of us with old computers can use? it really sucks that i can't use it anymore...

also i was having the issue with the firewall thing but apparently it's gone now.

NEW POSTS:

When you log on to the DB any forums that have a new post since your last visit will have a yellow pages indicated rather than white pages.

When you open the forum each thread that has a new post will show a yellow folder rather than a white folder.

When you go to a thread with a new post the first new post will be the one displayed. If you go to a forum with no new post the first post will be the first post in the thread.

Posts that are new since your last visit will also have a "new" button on the top left of the post.

I know there have been some suggestions to make it clearer as to identifying new posts. I am not sure what anyone means or is suggesting. After making sure you know how the system works please let me know what your are wanting and be as specific as you can in your de>

Nobs,

it's a bow tie for sure! Very IN at the time I wore it! And I had just had 6 inches cut off the length of my hair the day before! Awesome times they were! :P

Curtis, very cool. I just found the note at the bottom of the pm that indicates whether it has been read or not. Now I'm happy too.

Brent, are you suggesting that we pay attention to the board before we make suggestions on how to fix what you've already fixed? Hrmph - the nerve! \:D

You're right Nobs.... PM's are not functioning... nothing.

shout box isn't working either, nor is the "I want to preview my changes" button.

My guess is someting is being worked on currently causing these issues

It used to be that when you went to your own or another persons profile to see their previous posts, you could click an option that allowed you to see only posts started by them, rather than every topic they've participated in. I've searched by I don't see that option any more. Am I just missing it or is it not there? If it's not there, can we get it back?

Hey, I just discovered a REALLY AGGRAVATING problem. I cannot edit my own posts after they've been on DB for a while. there seems to be some kind of clock on the edit feature. This is most definitely NOT acceptable. If I find a glaring error in my text I'd like the option of fixing it rather than looking like an idiot in perpetuity! I know, don't even begin to tell me that I do anyhow so get over it!!! LOL

GRRRRRRR!!!!!

\:\)

I agree with Trish. We need the option of seeing posts that other's have started rather than having to sort through it all.

Lots of love,

John

If you click on someone's user name, it will open a drop down box and one of the options in that drop down box is to "View Posts" so you can see the posts that that person has made.

That's true, Eddie. You simply can't sort the list by the posts this person started, which is the question Trish is asking........I think..... I've found no way of doing it anyhow although I've tried.

I just discovered that all Posts a person starts can be determined by the fact that they do not have "Re:" preceding them.

Brent,

What was wrong with sending the content of a PM to my mailbox the way it was with the old software? The way it is now I get nothing more than a notification that I have a PM. While changing this feature may have been useful to some here, I don't find it so. Before it enabled me to see the contents of the PM via my cell phone when away from the computer. It's not a huge thing, but it was a feature I got used to and really liked. Can I have it back.....? Please.....? Pretty please...? With a cherry on top....?

Lots of love,

John

Thanks John. Once again, something hidden in plain site. This new DB is good, really, I like it, but getting used to it is like playing that game in the comic pages. You know the one - the same picture is side by side, but you have to figure out the subtle little differences in each one. I'm gonna have to get better at that damn game!

ROCK ON......Trish

Me, too. And as clutzy of a poster as I am, that's a real problem!

Edit: Trying to edit to see if it works!

Eddie,

Like I said, the only reason this is an issue with me is I have this great fear of looking the idiot for posterity!

Not a happy thought! ;\) Apparently it is now working (maybe?)

I've got to think some of these problems are a result of browser settings. I've experienced similar stuff in the past but am currently having no issues. I know at some point I changed my browser settings for a reason other than this, but don't recall what the changes were or whether my issues with MS went away at the same time or not.

Could be. I'm using Firefox tho so I can't imagine what settings could be messing stuff up.

Chat question:

I am on a Mac, using Firefox to access chat. I can see what's going on, but I can't communicate. Text does not type in the send message box. Anyone know what's up?

Thanks!

Back to working on my website. Thanks for the help!

Just a curiousity. I have never attended a retreat, and yet, that forum shows up for me. I clicked on it just out of curiousity, and I have access. I do not know why. I have never attended a retreat, and I have never requested access. (I never requested access for At Risk and for some reason have it for that one also. I just never go into it, because it seems it would be disrespect to those who asked to have access there). I am sure you haven't had requests to deny access before, I am just saying that I have it for two forums that truly, I shouldn't.

Tatooman - Look under Public Male Survivors Forum for "Trouble Logging On". That is probably your answer!

I was looking at a profile and I noticed that the question that used to be something like "MaleSurvivor Member: Yes or No" now reads as "Male Survivor of Sexual Abuse? Yes or No". When did that change? And more importantly, it looks like the answers that were in the profiles carried over into the new question. My concern is that someone who may have previously been simply a member (such as a Friends and Family member) now has a "Yes" in their profile unknowningly to the "Male Survivor of Sexual Abuse?" question. True? Or was there some kind of conversion of this field where you somehow knew which ones to turn from Yes to No? Just wondering if anyone was aware of this.

Eddie,

To answer your question, yes. It looks as if what you suspected is true. Folk who were simply members previously are now listed as "Male Survivor of Sexual Abuse". Including our female paying members. I'm sure they would be suprised to discover that fact!

I'll PM Brent with this question and see if we can get it taken care of.

Good catch!

John

On the glitch, it suddenly stated 'No' to the question of wheter I am a male survivor of sexual abuse. So obviously I corrected that.

But for what I was going to post here;

From topics I'm watching, I do not get e-mail notifications.
I did state in my profile that I want to get e-mails about it and the e-mailadress is correct also.
Anyone knows what's wrong?

Stefan
