Thanks for the explanation. Post count isn't important to me, it was just an odd thing to see.

Something obviously happened overnight.

I suppose it was bound to have side effects. Not a biggie, but annoying nonetheless. I apologize for any confusion or inconvenience, but it was the best/only solution.

Thank you for the update, I was really wondering what was going on here last night and I did see DFC melt down post and I was very surprised by it and I have noticed that he was demoted too also what happened to the original Dirty Dozen thread and all the other threads before Apr 07, 2018 that simply disappeared were they a casualty of DFC's or is there a cut off point on the forum?

Hi BAD WOLF -- everything that was erased but had been posted before May 30 has been restored and measures were taken to contain any further damage. Some items posted by him after the backup date of May 30 may have disappeared for good, if he has erased them.

Hi. Right now we don’t have anything set aside for customs, though there is a separate section outside the General Talk area  called Your First Classifieds (be advised that Forumotion has guidelines, just like SF, about copyright infringement). You can post your stuff in the General Section,  but we’d prefer if you limit the business end (ie, costs, sales, etc.) through the private message system. We don’t want to draw the same kind of unwanted attention that SF did. Hope that’s okay with you.

And welcome aboard.

You should not need a permission (I checked out your profile and doesn't indicate any limitation). Just click on the "New Topic" button and start your new topic/thread.

I am glad you have found a workaround (Safari on PC). It is possible that either Chrome or Forumotion (or each) has undergone some update and there are some glitches like that. We have changed nothing in the configuration of our own site on our end. I imagine glitches will be resolved (hopefully shortly), but if not, let me know and I can try the Forumotion support people.

To that end, can another Chrome user please check and see if they are experiencing the same issue (on a PC, I assume)?

I haven't heard back from you on the previous question (about what system you are using), but given that Bad Wolf is not having issues with Chrome on PC, I suspect this is a problem likely to be specific to your setup. It reminds me a little of an issue user ostfront43 had right after we started this forum -- and the problem was a virus protection setting. Check out post 27 in this topic/thread (page 1) and maybe the posts leading up to it or following it, just in case this helps. Admittedly, ostfront43 wasn't using Chrome. Hope this helps.

Just thought I'd mention that the site's been playing up the last few days for me running Win 10 using Firefox, my browser's menu toolbar links for this site don't seem to work any more nor do Google searches. I only got back into the site via an email link...odd and a bit worrying.

This is odd. I use Windows 10 with Firefox and haven't had any of these problems. There was some sort of overall Forumotion upgrade recently and at one point I noticed a slowdown in the connection that might have been while they were upgrading, but access is back to normal speed now (and has been for a couple of days). I don't know what about your system is causing hickups (MerylAkiba's experience reminds us that anti-virus settings can play a role), but it would appear to be a localized issue rather than a general problem with the site. Also, I just did a Google search for onesixthfigures and our site shows up as the third hit. While this is a workaround rather than fix, I would suggest making a new bookmark, if you haven't done so already.

LOL cheers! It's an old house with dodgy plumbing and electrics so steam from the shower trips the the mains sometimes, nothing serious or anyone's fault well maybe the landlord's but I'm not making an issue out of it since I don't want a rent increase! Computer doesn't like it much even when it's shut down as the battery back up on the mother board doesn't work... Embarassed

Hi all,
Maybe someone can help me. I'm ready to start posting my work here. I wanted to use servimg. It seemed pretty simple. I obviously have an account here, so I should be good to go. When I try logging in to servimg.com using my login info from here, it says there is no account with my e-mail or password. I researched it. So, I set up a forum on forumotion. I then tried logging into servimg with my new forumotion log in info and the same thing happened. I then joined my own forum as a guest and that login info didn't work either.

What am I missing?


Thanks,

Mark aka delusional

Hi Mark,

Having a membership or ownership of a forum on Forumotion does not mean you have an automatic matching Servimg account. You have to create one of those. Your username and password might be the same as the ones you use here (if that is what you choose to do), but you still have to specify them when you set up your Servimg account. Also, to log into Servimg, you need not a username by itself, but an e-mail address (whether or not the e-mail and account names are the same, it will need to be whatever @ whatever . whatever).

Hope this helps.

Right now so many wonderful threads are buried in the general thread, which has already 11 pages.

Hi Peaches. Thanks for the suggestions. We don't have too many tutorials (yet), but I will discuss with the other moderators and see what we can do about it.

I suppose you mean the Outbox? I've never been totally clear on the distinction between that and the Sentbox and if this is what it is, I am not convinced that the messages haven't actually gone through. You can try to PM me to see if there is a problem on your end.

They load fine for me, Roger. Have you tried to clear your chache/browser history? Usually I find that helps with weird issues like that.

I did that yesterday. It's not like the pics are that big either, I deliberately size them to 640x480. They did eventually load, but, they took their time. I will say that my internet connection has been slow in general, but, it was only Imgur that seemed particularly slow tonight.

Hopefully things will clear up

Sometimes it does seem to take awhile with the 3rd party hosts. Servimg works pretty good for me most of the time (unless the files are bigger — or there are a lot of them).

Turned out it was the router that needed a kick up the ass, I reset it and the speed came back. At least I know what to do now. As we don't have fibre the router is a little old. I'm going to make sure I get the best I can get when I move. If I can get fibre then I'll have it.

CHEERS!

EDIT:

Actually, the router needs to go in a skip! When the previous one died, the guy I spoke to on the phone said they could replace it free of charge. What the cheeky sod didn't say was they'd replace it with a USED one! We've only had this one since August and it's already showing the symptoms the previous one did and my brother had had that one for years!

Thankfully, when I move, that will become my Dad's problem and not mine, LOL!
