Thread: Did we ever get the old archives back?

    Default Did we ever get the old archives back?

    I've been gone for ages, and I wanted see if the old archives (talking about the older ones not the ones from the previous incarnation of this community but from like 1999-2000) have ever been restored, also do we no longer have a flashchat to use? Is that set to change sometime soon? We used to have some good times in the old Flashchat....Missing my friends....

    Welcome back Pamster!

    Dr. Dan Hoch hasn't been able to look through the hard drive or cds that John gave him before disappearing into Canada. In our next meeting I'll be sure to bring them up again ;) We no longer have flashchat, nobody was using it and the software itself wasn't being supported by the developer any longer.
    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.

    Thanks Mike! I have been gone for ages, but missed all my friends here. That's too bad about Flashchat, but if it wasn't being used OR the developer even supporting it anymore, then getting rid of it made more sense then keeping it would have. Good to see you! :)
