Started another one called "New A2K Annoyances":

http://able2know.org/topic/120917-1

The idea is that this one would be for things that you think probably aren't supposed to be that way; things for Craven and Nick to maybe address.

The other one is more just for kvetching.

@sozobe,
Reporting a post no longer causes A2k to send me an automatically generated e-mail. (I reported one of my own posts to check.) The reported post is voted down (which makes sense -- if I report it, I probably don't like it), and I get a message that "you have successfully reported this post". No e-mail though, neither automatically generated nor human-generated.

Maybe if a moderator reads this, he or she can take a look how the feature looks from a his or her perspective.

@sozobe,
Nimh said he had a problem with the "ignore" feature. I just tried it and seemed to work fine. (Now I need to find hingehead somewhere to UN-ignore him.)

@sozobe,
If it works as it does on other forums, you should be able to go to the My Account Link to see a list of all the users you've ignored and have the option to unignore them there.

@Butrflynet,
Yep, "my ignored users" was on that page, thanks. (That sounds like some sort of dysfunctional relationship thing... but I digress.)

@sozobe,
Just kvetching cos I can't get in as me....dlowan.

So, this is a dumb name me!


This was an old account I started to have fun with when the Borat film was big.

For what it is worth, I was able to get a link to re-set my password sent to the email for this account, but not to my normal email address.

@Borat Sister,
This may be a stupid question, but ... Did you use your normal e-mail account when you signed up to the old site as "dlowan"?

@Borat Sister,
Dlowan,
If you had a short password on the old site, you will need to change it.

Yes.

I am attempting to get in as dlowan using dlowan's email account as A2k has it for that username.

Indeedy doody....but it will not send me an email allowing me to do that.

Borat Sister also had a short password...and it sent HER an email allowing her to change it!

@Borat Sister,
This is weird, because dlowan did work for you on the other site. So it's not the software -- it's either a configuration problem or a database import problem.

Evidently the Hamsters are punishing you for this impossible bathing suit you made for your brother.

Ah Here's another bug. The preview button posts instead of previewing. It appears to correlate with posting from my work laptop through my company's VPN. Maybe the preview feature has a problem with firewalls?

I just tried to edit my collapse options in my preferences to "no collapse" but the defaults of -10 and -5 are still showing up after I hit the update preferences button.

I'd already done that but I thought that just made the entire post show up in the scroll window by default. Does it also relate to keeping all posts on the page?

Well, I cannot truly complain about such punishment.

It was a TERRIBLE bathing suit.

But I did enjoy seeing him in it.... Wink

The "ignore user" button on a user's profile page does not work for me.

When viewing a tag (e.g., politics) I can't change my sort order to "most votes."

As soon as I hit "go" it blinks, and goes back to "new posts."
