    I don't have any problems on any other sites that I post at.

    Anyways. It didn't happen last night. I purposefully left that box unchecked just to see, and it seems fine now. If it happens again, I will let you know.

    Swell, but I don't see anyone else having that problem on this site. I never even see a login page, and I wouldn't know how to get one other than by deleting the PF cookie.

    I'd try another browser, if you haven't already.

    Thanks but no thanks. I like my browser. Like I said, I haven't been having that problem recently and I'm quite sure it's not because of my browser. Doesn't happen anywhere else.

    The only reason why you wouldnt see a log in page is because you have the box clicked anyways, and we've already figured out that if the box is checked, then it doesn't happen. :rolleyes:

    And obviously I like mine; but were I having that problem in Firefox, I'd see if the same thing happens in Opera.

    My alien friend:

    Wow I like this "Upload a File" button in the middle between "Post Reply" and "More Options..." This is the first time on the new system that I've uploaded a file from my computer.

    I saw several people upload a file, but I didn't know how to do it before so this is my first attempt.

    Does anyone know if there's a gallery where you can reuse an image? Or do you just have to upload it again each time you use it???

    I purposefully did not check that little box again, and when I went to navigate to "home", it logged me out of the forum. That is so weird. If I check that box, it doesn't happen.

    Okay, here is a problem I've found. I got a new friend request, but there was no alert. If I hadn't noticed, I would have not even known. We should be alerted when there is a new friend request. Thank you. :)

    One request, one question:

    Request: In the thread paging display, could we change the background color of the current page number to be a little darker? I sometimes have trouble distinguishing the light blue from the light green.

    Question: I'm confused about how the "ignored member" stuff is supposed to work. Sometimes their posts are displayed, with a note saying "You are ignoring this member." Sometimes, their posts are hidden entirely. Most confusingly, if another poster quotes them in a response, the ignored member's quoted text often isn't displayed, making it unclear what the other poster is responding to.

    For the record, I would prefer the "you are ignoring this member" approach, where I can see that they posted, but not what they posted. And I think you have to display their text when it is quoted by other users.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the suggestions. We will make sure to bring them to the forum owner's attention.

    I tested if members can see their infraction points and came up with nada. So the best way is, of course, to stay out of trouble. You are also welcome to contact a staff member, and we'll look it up for you for the time being.
    As for awards, I am not sure what you are looking for. Are you looking to see your likes?

    A Trophy is worth a brisket and brasket.

    Yonder is over hill, over dale, down the dusty trail... :)

    Actually I'm pretty sure he's referring to infractions. ;-)

    How do I resize a photo that I want to use? I tried to resize it, but it doesn't seem to have worked. It says it should be 200 x 200, and that's what I changed it to, but it is still too big to completely fit in the little avatar box.

    I tried to fix it but still . . . what's wrong with it? It looks like I have a big giant face! :laughing:
