Old thread, but this seemed like the best place to ask. When I try to set an avatar, I get an "Invalid File" error, whether I try to upload one or link to one from my Photobucket. Is there a minimum post count to set an avatar or something?

There still isn't a "start new thread" button here.....
PS, I came here to ask why I can't post a poll?

Fixed that part about starting a new thread. Should be able to now.

As for posting a poll, Standard users aren't set up to be able to, but if you create a thread, I can add a poll to it for you.

I added the poll but there are a few things left:

1. Is there a time out for this? Or did you want to leave this open ended? Currently, it is set to 0 to remain open indefinitely.

2. Additional options:
- Allow multiple choice (give users the ability to select more than 1 answer)
- Make votes public (display all users who voted, and what choices they voted for)


Also, I had to shorten the question so it could fit as there was a character limit: Which statement best applies to the MKII Supra you are driving, building or WTB? (want to buy)

Let us know if you are happy with leaving it as is or would like to make any adjustments.



Cheers,
Nate :)

The wording looks great, I would like it to be public, but only allow one selection. Thank You.
PS: is it possible to allow members with over 1000 posts to post their own polls? We've done it before.....

I haven't been receiving email notices of pm's for at least a couple of months. I do see pop up notification when I log in but I'd prefer to be notified by email like I used to. Nothing has changed with my email and all the settings in my account look fine. And no, they aren't going into my junk folder. What gives?

We can set that up if there's enough support form the community.
Afterwards, I'll have to escalate this to the mods and admins for approval.

So how this works is when someone posts something, a notification will be sent to you, but it will go through your email provider before it gets to you. This delay happens often if you have an email service that likes to withhold content (like an email version of customs check).

Please try adding [email protected] and [email protected] to your emails' contact/safe sender list.

Give it a few days after doing this to see if it takes effect as well as keep an eye on real-time notification. Let us know and we'll proceed from there - thanks!

I didn't do a thing and this morning, I got an email notification of a pm as I always used to. Hopefully, this will continue. Thanks for whatever IT magic made it happen.

Anybody, besides me, have the problem of your posts not showing up in the applicable threads when you click on "New Posts"? I make a post and look for it at the top, or near the top, of the "New Posts" threads and get nothing.

Not seeing your post in the New Posts either. Have you noticed this every time, or just on some posts?

Kevin
Have noticed it on all my posts. It's been happening for quite a while, but I am just now reporting it since I was off the forum for a few months because of my now finished home improvement project.

Maybe I'm missing something here. Why should a new post anyone makes show up when they check for new posts? You made the post so it wouldn't be new to you. It should however, show up when anyone else clicks on new posts as it would be new to them. Just as when someone else posts in the same thread, you'd then see the thread under "What's New" as there would actually be something posted that is indeed new to you. This makes total sense to me. Just like the forum knowing what's new to me since I last logged in. Otherwise, what would be considered new posts? Something from today, this week, in the last month or year? Any of those could be in a category called recent posts with some reference somewhere to what's considered recent. How this feature operates seems exactly like it should be to me.
The same can't even be remotely stated for the search feature compared to how a site specific Google search works, for example. However, as frustrating as it is, I have to be honest and state that more often than not, something very interesting and usually very useful, although completely irrelevant to the search does show up. This might be something I might have searched for before and was unsuccessful in finding. But it's just as likely to be a gem of very useful or very interesting information that I wouldn't have thought of searching for. So please, leave the crappy search function exactly as it is. There's always the Google site specific option which does work as expected. I just wish that I'd remember to use it when it would really help me out. But I almost never remember it when I actually need it. That's definitely not a software or IT problem, at least not one isolated to this site!

Previously, new posts by any poster, even the person reviewing new posts because they just made one, always showed up when the user clicked "new posts". If you are a member of SF or SM, you will see this feature works as it previously worked on this site. Now, for some reason. it does not. Also, there is no way to know if others see your new post unless, of course, they respond to it. Then, as RedP85 said, the same issue arises again, at least for him and, possibly, others as well.

Well, I still think this works like I think it should, whether or not it actually did used to show anyone and / or everyone their new posts as well, which I have no problem believing you that it did. I would likely have ignored this behavior anyway seeing it as redundant or more accurately as an inadequacy in what's defined as new to me not excluding my own posts.
I can understand your concern that new posts might not be able to be seen by you or any other users. But I can't understand how a post could be saved yet not be seen by any users without generating some sort of error when being saved. Although it's not absolutely impossible for this to have happened in any version of any software ever, if it indeed did, the issue was likely fixed long ago in the code. However, it could still be set to show your new posts to you as well if that's what user(s) preferred. It could also be an option available to individual users. I can also understand that if any forums had had a problem with this happening at any time in the past, that that option would likely be set as the default for them. So it makes sense that if this option is available and / or the default on other forums, at least those running the same underlying software, it should still be an option here. But it could also have been an option in older versions that was added due to a different issue that had been fixed and never removed later. But in later versions, if it wasn't a needed or wanted feature, it would have been eliminated or could have been moved to another level or place in the interface. It could be due to a multitude of other reasons or causes as well. But why this is happening to any or all users of this forum as well as whether or not the issue can be fixed and / or why or why not and / or can or can't, will have to come from a site administrator. That's my 2 Canadian pesos worth.

celicasupra.com site NOT secure?

I'm on Chrome and even in the "In cognito" mode.
I never noticed this before.:duh:
Same issue with pandora.com

If I go to Pandora on Opera browser-no problem.
http is not the same as https.

When I go to Pandora on Chrome,I get this LARGE warning.
Anyone else?
********************
Google stated that they will flag http sites with that warning in 2017.
