    Re: This board sucks

    Does anyone know how I stop the email notifications?  My in-box is swamped. I hit the button that says stop, but they keep coming.

    Re: This board sucks

     

    Yes, Len answered this one for me earlier.  I was going crazy with 50 e-mails every hour...

     

     

    The problem is, any thread that you viewed BEFORE you clicked stop e-mails will continue sending e-mails.  Open each thread that you've opened before and you'll see a "stop e-mails" choice in the little box to the left.  Click it for that thread and you won't get them anymore.  For that thread.  Therein lies the problem   Any thread you've read before you changed it, you'll keep getting them until you click for each thread, stop e-mails.

     

     

    I hate this board.

    Don't forget to go to your profile, select "Edit preferences" and turn off everything in there.

     

     

     

     

     

    Also change the view to FLAT if you want it to look like the MCM board.

    Re: This board sucks

    Len, you're a wealth of knowledge, as always. What about any way to change the font size while you're typing? I can't even see what I'm typing without reading glasses on (on top of my contacts...)

     

    Also, is there a place to change the time zone? I've noticed everything is posted in Pacific time, at least on my computer. Two hours before my time and three hours before most of y'all's.

     

     

    I repeat... I hate this board.

     

     

    EDIT:  Never mind, found the time zones under preferences.

    Re: This board sucks

    OK, I just sent them email about the fonts.  I also mentioned the way it locks up sometimes when you try to reply, that I have to add an extra return to keep my post from being inside the quoted part, and I tried to change to 50 items per page but it doesn't stick.

    Re: This board sucks

     

    Otherwise my biggest problem is all the extra information on the page.  With the old board, It was just the board.  On the other hand it can be an advantage because sometimes those links lead to interesting discussions.

     

     

     

     

     

    Oh, yeah, the avatars are a little distorted.  I really look like a fireplug in mine.

    Thanks, Dave.  That's just what I intend to do this afternoon, run 15 miles and forget about the annoyances of this board:)  And life in general...

     

     

    Len, let me know if they respond on the font question.  And yeah, you do kind of look like you're three feet tall and three feet wide in your avatar.  How difficult could it be to make them look "normal"??  Apparently very difficult.

    Others may have found this one. If you click on the "x minutes ago" link under "Last Post", it takes you directly to the end of the thread, i.e., the last post.

    I keep getting an error everytime I try to upload my image - what am I missing?

     

     

     

     

     

    (I go under edit profile and add image and I point to my pic and click save but every time it tells me there is an error.  I have tried saving it in different formats to no avail...what is the trick>?

    Len, thanks- I never even checked out my preferences. I wonder how long that will take. Thanks- again!

    For the avatar: go to your profile, click the "Account" tab and select "Change avatar" under "Actions" on the left.

    How big is the image, Dave? It's possible it exceeds some weird limit they have.

    I finally got back on.  It's been a real effort.  I still haven't sorted out the password problems, but I've email them so hopefully I hear something and it can be sorted out.  I hate this board, but I guess I have to get used to it.  I'm so glad I see all of you are still here.  I'm now going to read all the posts I've missed, but when I saw this thread I had to answer immediately.
