if you get problems like that in the future, please email me date and time (including timezone) of the error ASAP and I'll check the logs...

Not sure where this should go so here it is in Help. Seeing as how there is a photo album thread is it possible to have a similar one for on-line video links?

Any chance of moving the navigation links that are below the "New Post" section to above the "New Post" section? Since I use the "next" function far more often than posting a new message, it would reduce the amount of scrolling I have to do to get to the "next" link.

We'll have video attachments as soon as we leave the Beta stage behind us, Nick.

John, I would like to have your problems... :-)

is there any way to make the post box and the edit box bigger? if it's not too hard?

use a magnifying glass or (on a mac) go to system prefs > seeing > zoom

Or use Safari 3.0 (Mac or PC) which has resizable text-boxes. However, it might break the rest of the layout...

This isn't a big problem but curious nonetheless. When I select a topic in the list and it takes me to the particular site, if for instance the topic has 16 pages to it-with a most recent post, say, four hours ago-I am instead taken to, say, page 9 with posts that are a week and a half old instead of the most recent (or heck, even if it took me to the beginning with the very first posts would make more sense).

Any reason for this? I'm on a Mac OS 10.4.11, Safari 3

Oops, so obviously the double-dash isn't entirely fixed.... Sorry folks. I'll figure it out eventually!

Alan, the system remembers where you were last reading, so it takes you to the last 3 posts you have read and shows you new ones following on from them. You'll see the first 3 posts will be grey (meaning you've read them) and the rest on that page will be white, meaning they're new to you.

oops, accidentally clicked "Hide IDFA 2007 Topic"... how do I get it back?

Go to the main page and click on "my topics" or here where you can select or deselect topics to be displayed.

Hey, what gives? D-word won't allow me to see the last posting in the views on news section, or allow me to post (even show me the box that I need to post.


Joe Moulins

Chris Pavsek broke D-Word.


Danielle Fab

yes, looks like the Views on News Forum has imploded!


Doug Block

We'll look into it, folks (Peter G, are you here???). I not only have the same problem, I didn't even see News and Views the last few days. When I went to My Settings to see about it, turns out the topic was mysteriously unchecked.

Hmmm, maybe Chris DID break The D-Word.


Ben Kempas
Wed 12 Dec 2007Link

Doug, you must have clicked "Hide Views on News from now on" which happens to be just below "Back to Topics List".

As for the technical problem with the last posting in Views on News, we alerted Peter.

All better now... Looks like Chris and Reed broke it together by clicking the Post button at exactly the same second. I'll try and prevent bugs like that in the future!


Joe Moulins
Thu 13 Dec 2007Link

I'm guessing they were both pounding the button. Just goes to show why it's important to carry a spare.

Views on News is stuck again.
I blame Reed.


Peter Gerard

People are getting anxious in there. I fixed it again.

yo-my advanced search feature doesn't seem to be working.


Ben Kempas
Sat 29 Dec 2007Link

It's working here. Please be more specific, Kurt:

What are your search terms and settings?

What browser/OS?


Kurt Engfehr

Ben-after reading your post i tried it on my PC using firefox and it worked, which it wasnt' on a Mac osX with Safari.

so, i guess it's working. kinda.

you know what would be handy? being able to search posts by people who wrote them. just a thought.
