Concerned.

Post by A-Four » Fri Apr 28, 2017 1:31 pm

i have noticed over the past year that the PM facility is some times available to me, but then again for most of the time is not. I also discovered that a couple of people on this site had tried to contact me by the PM system, but not possible.

In addition to the above problem, I have noticed that I also do not have the 'like' facility, though being that there is not a 'ldislike' part, I am none too bothered. I think that most established members on here know that I believe a forums members should be of a 'broad church' of views and attitudes, and at all costs possible, should not become a clique.

With the amount of code required to keep a forum like this up and running it is no surprise that sometimes members experience a problem. When problems do occur it is very difficult to find the actual cause, but Keefy does his best to track any problem down, but he cannot work miracles. Almost everyone has experienced a problem at sometime or another, most members just accept it happens and get on with it. As for the PM system well I rarely use it unless replying to a member and as you have said that other people were able to inform you that they were trying to contact you, therefore they must have done it some other way as you were obviously aware of it, so once again no big deal. If I have friends I wish to keep in touch with I do it via email and I suspect many others do the same, I would not rely on a forum to be doing that. As to the ‘likes’ system, again you always say you dislike it and often refer to those people using it as being in a clique, so that should be no big loss to you and nothing you have mentioned stops you from making a post or from commenting on anyone else’s contribution, so your ‘broad church’ comment is without justification as anyone can have their say within the forum rules.

I "liked" the above post just to check my "like" button was working - as I would be devastated if it wasn't :roll:

Moreover, I've nothing better to do with my time at this precise moment.

I'm not sure if my PM service is working as no-one has sent me a PM ....or an email saying they've sent me a PM which I haven't received.

Maybe it isn't working :tk

Now I'm worried.... :a82:

I will see what I can do A-Four :) The PM system is not very good, many people have had problems with it, I have never had any reports of a problem with the LIKE system though, the forum uses scripts for it to work properly, maybe you have scripting turned off in your browser or something blocker that stops scripts?

I have tried to contact you A-Four - I have several numbers in my phone marked as you but do not know which is the proper one. Would very much like to hear from you. If you have left me "voice box" messages I have not got them as I have no idea where they are on my phone or how to find them (you know I am as much a technophobe as you are! :D )
p.s. I have logged in here many times hoping you would post something so I knew you were about!

Kevin, you only need to click on the button that says 'Board Index' and then scroll down to the very bottom of the page and you can see a list of members who have visited in the last 24 hours. Also if you click onto the little down pointing arrow alongside their avatar and choose 'profile' you can see when the member last visited, in A4's case it was on Saturday 29th. :up

This only shows "-" when I've looked....for any member.

It's visible to me, Horus, so I should think it is for everyone.

I have just tested this out (in members mode) and it seems like some members do have "-" others show the date and time, I will have to look into it more, it does not make any sense at the moment to why some do and some dont :oops:

Thanks Keefy, it just goes to verify what I ws telling A4 about forum glitches, some members get the odd problem and others do not, but with a forum as complex as this one glitches are bound to occur, good job you are around to try and sort them out. :up
