    Default BrainTalk crash 5/52013

    Howdy folks

    Around 5:45 pm PST the server crashed, it might have been down a little bit before then however I wasn't able to get online until then. A quick server restart seems to have fixed the issue. As far as I can tell nothing was lost (however any posts made just before the crash could be lost)

    If you notice anything out of the ordinary please let me know so I can look into it.
    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 Thanks Mike!

    ((((((Mike))))))

    Thanks for the information. So far, I don't see anything unusual, but what might I be looking for?

    Thanks for getting us back up and running so quickly too! I was here around that time (perhaps a few minutes earlier) and had to leave to tend to Jon. So, I guess I missed the excitement!

    And thank you, Mike, for all you do to keep this ship afloat and sailing smoothly.



    Love & Light,

    When I tried to look at my posts in my Profile by clicking View forum posts, the most recent one shown is 4/20/13. I've posted something almost daily since then but the posts aren't showing up. I looked for another user's posts by the same method and that person's recent posts aren't showing up either.

    Thanks for letting people know.

    Thank you for pointing that out All of your posts (aside from maybe the ones immediately before the crash) are still there. I've rebuilt the search index, if that doesn't "fix" it I'll fiddle around some more and see if I can.

    It appears that rebuilding the search index fixed the search for posts by member issue
