    Exclamation Possible down time for BT within 2 days

    Howdy folks

    I just checked the email account that is set up to get notices from our server and it appears that the payment was declined by Dr. Hoch. I don't know why and I'm hoping to get in touch with him before the host shuts us down for non payment. Just be aware that it's possible BT will be offline for a little bit.
    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    There are over 25 people who visit the MS board regularly. I hope this down time won't happen. Please do let us know if we can help in any way.

    In case of emergency downtime: meet at Agate's.

    See Agate's profile for directions to her "home." Best to get them now before you need them.

    Many of us have been around here for 15+ years in spite of quite a few times when the place was down. This is probably another of those bumps in the road.

    Let's hope the problem will be fixed soon--and many thanks to those who provide this place!

    BT's host charges us $34 a month and that's a grandfathered discount plan I worked out a long time ago. I'm waiting for the host to get back to me to see about keeping us online and will post again when I know more. Thanks for the offer to help it's greatly appreciated :)

    I kept the power on for another month via Paypal. I'll get in touch with Dr. Hoch to find a solution. Off to work I go.
