Title: Post-migration
Post by: Asmodean Prime on November 14, 2017, 08:31:20 AM
Post any issues you experience with the forums here. We will address them as best we can. I will update the log below on a regular basis.

ProblemStatus
I cannot upload an avatar[Resolved]There was an error in attachment folder settings. That is now corrected. If you were able to upload avatars before the migration, you should be able to do so again now.
My avatar has disappeared![Closed]So did mine. I'm looking for 34 missing avatar files, but cannot seem to find them anywhere logical. If I do find them, I will reupload. Quick fix: upload a new avatar from your profile controls. Abandoned unresolved; I can not find where the old system stored some of those avatars. Apologies for any inconvenience.
I cannot embed YouTube videos[Resolved]The associated mod has now been installed. You can embed YouTube videos, as well as videos from some other providers, simply by pasting a link to them in your post.
BB-code for spoilers not working[Resolved]The associated mod has now been installed. You can now use spoiler tags with parameters. Refer to test post below for examples.

Unfortunately, I had to abandon the avatar issue as I just. Can't. Understand. Where the old system stored the 34 missing avatars. They were not in the old attachment folder, which I mirrored and verified, and they were not externally linked since they went down.

The affected members will have to reupload. Appologies for the inconvenience.

Thanks for the spoiler, Asmo.

Yeah, uploaded my avatar again - once I found out where I stored it in my tablet!

I suppose if you've chosen to look aloof by looking away I wouldn't question your choice of look because it wouldn't be polite and I'm oh so very polite.

What's the collective noun for a many of Asmodeans?

Answer: Asmoxen

I went to the coffee shop this weekend and there was a group of Asmoxen sitting around drinking Matcha Lattes, and listening to someone read from the letters of Jack Kerouac.

Much obliged!  ;D

Did you by any chance have one with just the eyes flipped, but not the mouth? I liked that one. He's turned the other way, but He's WATCHING.

Probably, I must have, I think we've had this conversation before.

I know it's not a big deal, butt...can we do something about the look of the forum itself? (I'm not a big fan of blue, very dull, very blah, very depressing)

I'm simply saying, "Fuck Blue" as winter is approaching. Remember when Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope.  >:(

I need some hope man :P

Pink?

Choice?

But yes, something at the red end since I do a lot late in the evening and when I wake, temporarily, at 3 or 4am.

Go for "rose" rather than pink, sounds less feminine!

I would think we can do a selection and you choose your own. We will have a look at the available themes and make them selectable for users with say 100? posts?

Sounds like a prize:

Don't be blue,
Post more for
A warmer hue.

I think I can safely speak for everyone here at HAF (Except the kat lover Dave) and echo the above comment and express our thanks for everything you two do to keep this thang' running. It is appreciated.  :not worthy:

Pink?
Yes I like pink, and that would be a welcome change to the blue. I have several pink shirts and don't feel (Unlike the kat lover Dave) that my masculinity is threatened in anyway by wearing it.

Real men eat quiche and wear pink 8)

Is there a way to receive notifications by email when someone replies to a post I am on? I don't see it anywhere...but I am ultimately not that bright and probably did it wrong. (weeping, weeping...)

Below your avatar at the top of the page there is a menu: "Home," "Help," etc. Fourth from the left you'll find "Profile." Click that.

On the left side of your Profile page you'll see a category: "Modify Profile." Fourth on the list is "Notifications." Click that.

On your "Notifications" page, you can choose various options. I think the one you're looking for is "Turn notification on when you post or reply to a topic," so tick the box next to it.  For notification emails that will have posts enclosed, tick "When sending notification of a reply to a topic, send the post in the email (but please don't reply to these emails.)" You can also refine what notifications you receive and how they're sent in the two selection boxes below the three main choices.

Once you have things the way you think will work for you, click the "Save Settings" button, and carry on.
