Offline glitches

Recommended Posts

Hi, delete if I shouldn't be posting this as always but... figured one thread for bugs would be better than a thousand emails.

 

speaking of emails - no matter what I do I can't stop dm from sending me an email any time a thread I post in gets a new comment.  I've reset notifications several times, and now I've asked for no notifications (not my preference but I wasn't able to get online notifications so... had to try to stop the emails).

 

this is what my notification preferences looks like after saving

Not sure if it would make a difference but try removing the thread from your profile photo then Manage Followed Content... might be a different setting if you are following the thread automatically.

Click the profile photo in the upper right then manage followed content... Will check on my phone to see if it is different from the mobile version.

Okay, mobile you tap the three lines in upper right corner then tap Account and choose Manage Followed Content.

 

You can unfollow a thread there or change the notifications for threads you are already following... think the settings you changed may be going forward and not those threads you already follow... but that is just an assumption.

I will try that thanks :)

 

meanwhile i I discovered that no matter what I chose for my global preferences, every thread I ever followed including the one I started tonight have default to send me notification of reply, right there in the lower left corner. I'm unchecking them as they pop up, and perhaps I could get them out of the followed content but yikes, that's gonna be a massive undertaking.

 

in the long run I hope we can get online notifications and successfully opt out of email notifications but this quick fix stopped the flood for now.

I just removed all the content in my followed content area and didn't get an email :knock on wood: for the last two replies so that seems to be it.  Let us know if that does it for you too or if you still have the issue.

And that page, at least on the PC, has a checkbox to select all at once then unfollow... What I did and I'll just manually follow any threads I need that kind of notification for.

It has the select all for each page of followed threads. I have 161 pages...

 

lol I'll just do it as they pop up for now and hope we get back to regular notifications.  I'm having a hard time following threads now cause my brain is old.

has there been a limit imposed regarding pms? amount or age?  i seem to be missing some tho their from 10 years or more ago but some of them contained Band info i think.

 

Also how can i change settings for how they appear? those are kinda hard for me to see like they are   need them wider really

 

and if im looking for something old the only way ive found to look if i dont know the title is to just keep scrolling down    which takes forever when u have a lot.

I messaged Jason about this yesterday, but I find it concerning that certain members are having their personal information as user names now. Darthe's account is displaying his personal email, and Manbat's account is displaying his real name.

Something else weird for me. The Unread Content and other custom filters are only bringing up stuff on the main boards. I can see unread and new stuff on the sub boards but I can't get it to appear on searches.

Yes, it worked ok a few times for me but now it mostly does this and with the notifications not working it's really difficult to keep up

I think I noticed a few of the Band SG threads having that issue too... Not showing in unread content but showing bold on the main page when browsing the forums manually.

So I think I figured it out.  The Admin has disabled the toggle of someone replying to something you follow as just notifications and only email.

It's the field highlighted pinkish.  When I hover over it the pop-up says "the administrator has disabled this option from being toggled."  Once that is enabled and we can select it under the notification list we should stop receive ridiculous amounts of emails.

I toggled that Oscar.  See if that fixes anything on your end.

Hello, my name is displaying as my RL name. It should be Gudrean =)

Gudrean, you can change your display name.  At the top right corner, click on your name, then "Account Settings."  From there, on the left side, select "Display Name."  You can change it up to 3 times in a 30-day period.  Let me know if that solves the issue.

I tried that but the display name and other details aren't clickable.  =)

Hmmm, just looked at it through non-admin settings and you don't have that same option.  I can manually change yours, Gud, and yours too, Cindy, if you let me know what it needs to be.

    •   Yes...1 point to you.      Correct! 5 points to you!!!   I will update the scores and start a new puzzle when I get home from work!
    • Good catch, Ben.   Everyone looks so lovely.
    • Ooo...very pretty Chae!   *watches Ben bobble the ball*   Nice catch!
    • About the forced wealth sharing . . .   My parents divorced when I was very young. I don't remember living with my biological father. My mother worked long hours to support her 2 girls. She remarried when I was 6 (almost 7). My stepfather was an enlisted member of the AF who had just come out of a bankruptcy (thanks to his ex-wife who cheated on him while he was in Korea -- and had a kid from that affair -- and who spent everything they had and then some while he was gone). On top of recovering from the bankruptcy and paying child support for his own kids, he also had two new step-daughters to support (our biological father was a dead-beat dad who did not pay child support).   We grew up with what we needed but precious little else. However, my dad (he's my step-dad but he's also my daddy and the only one I recognize) always told us we could do whatever we set our mind to. He helped to establish a good work ethic in my sister and I and would have tried to with his own kids if he'd had access to them (even though he paid child support his ex never followed through on visitation agreements).  After high school, I drifted a bit. I didn't know what I wanted to do but that whole time I was working close to full time AND going to school. You see, my dad insisted that even though I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life, I needed something to fall back on and as long as I was living in his house I had to be working and paying my own way. So I went to school for "Office Systems Technology" (aka, secretarial stuff) around my day job. I then managed to get an entry-level job at a local military base in the clerical field making just under $9900 per year (before taxes) in 1988 (this was an open announcement and was open to the general public but there was a requirement to pass a subsequent background check to continue employment). During my first 3 years there, I began taking prerequisites for engineering -- at night, after working a full day. When I had my 3 years in, I applied for the cooperative education program (again, this program was open to anyone) and was accepted in 1991. In this program, the government paid for my college education in exchange for me working for that agency for a set amount of time after graduation. I graduated with my BS in ME in 1994 and have been working my way up since then. I have busted my butt and I am now making 6 figures before taxes. I have also just completed my Master's Degree in Systems Engineering.   So, no, I do not agree with forcibly taking money from me to distribute to someone else.  The opportunities available to me were open to anyone who could pass the background check and met the GPA requirements.  For people whose parents don't have enough money for school, there are Pell Grants and scholarships. There ARE options.   My boys are now in college. My oldest "squandered" his Bright Futures scholarship by not showing up to class for most of a semester. He's now paying what his scholarship used to pay and his dad and I are paying what his scholarship didn't. IOW, he pays 2/3 of his tuition and we pay 1/3. He's learned a valuable (albeit expensive) lesson.  My youngest has 2/3 of his tuition plus some of his books paid for with his Bright Futures scholarship. We pay what that doesn't cover.  It's still a good bit of money out of our pocket and requires careful planning and budgeting, even with our "unfair" advantage of my hard-earned paycheck. (BTW, both my boys make their own car and cell phone payments, as well, and my oldest pays half his car insurance since he works close to full time and is only going to school part time.)   So, no, I do not agree with what I've worked so hard for being forcibly redistributed to someone else. If someone who had the same opportunities as me who took advantage of those opportunities and is now making 7 or 8 figures? More power to them! Bravo! I would hope they use a generous portion for good but I don't agree with forcibly taking from them.   My husband and I help people as much as we can. Recently we tried helping a local homeless couple who, as it turns out, were only interested in being helped in the way they wanted. I don't want to get into it in too much depth here but we supported them for nearly 3 months and in that time the only thing they accomplished was  running up our electric bill, eating our groceries, "borrowing" gas money to "look for a job" and shooting up her Pell Grant. That last one clinched it for us (they had sworn to us they were not junkies and didn't look or act like it when we first ran into them and offered them the opportunity we did). So we had to "invite" them to leave. She's now in rehab (thank God) and he was Baker Acted a few days ago when someone else called LEO on him for making threats on his life. We have, however, taken in their old dog and are caring for him. The poor dog is the biggest victim in this case, IMO, and doesn't deserve what they've put him through. They chose their lifestyle; the dog did not. I hope they get help. I hope they get clean. But we cannot afford to spend any more on them than we already have except for the money we spend on their dog. It still may be a pricey endeavor; he's not young and hasn't been to the vet in quite some time. I would not be surprised if he had heartworms, and heartworm treatment would be way more than we could afford to spend on him (and at his age, the treatment might kill him anyway).   BTW, my husband and I also support a couple kids in Peru. If our pay were to forcibly redistributed, we could not do so.   Let me decide who I want to support with my money. I've worked hard for it; I deserve that much. If I'm wrong, it's on me.
