    Default Downtime on Feb 14 2019

    Howdy folks

    The recent downtime was due to non payment of the host. I'm assuming that Dr. Hoch's cc expired and he forgot to update our hosts records. I was able to login and take care of it for the next three months.
    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.

    Thumbs up Thank You!

    ((((((Mike)))))) ~

    Thank you so much for letting us know and for renewing BrainTalk for another 3 months.

    It was quite disconcerting to be unable to connect to BT. I remembered our previous crashes, and I worried just a little that BT could be gone forever. That's a terrible thought, as I would miss all of our wonderful friends here.

    Thank you Mike, Dr. Hoch, David, and Moderators for everything you do to keep BrainTalk's doors open.

    Love & Light,

Our Angel Michael received his wings in 2003. Our Angel Jon received his wings April 2019. Now, they watch over Jim and me.

    What Rose said! Memories of past down times don't fade easily.

    Many thanks to everyone who maintains this place. It's no easy job.

    I also ditto what Rose said. I was so afraid it was gone. Some of us here would be devastated. I wish there was a way that we could help with this, so you and others would not have to worry about it.

    Thank you so much for getting us back on and thanks to Dr. Hoch.
