    Are the previous posts going to be restored, or are they permanently gone? For instance, someone posts and it states that they've posted 47 times at BrainTalk. When you go to look for the previous posts, you usually find only the most recent one or two. It's helpful to be able to refer to all of them.

    Hi agate :)

    The posts are there. We've been chasing this bug for awhile now haven't we :( I'm in contact with some folks that are much smarter about vB then I am, hopefully they can shed some light on this.
    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.

  3. The following user says "thanks"

    They're there but we can't see them yet. I get it. Rome wasn't built in a day, and it's good to know that they're not lost. Thanks!
