Message Notification and Sigs

Post  Adminassassin on Mon Mar 29, 2010 9:26 pm

Signatures are something added from the "profile" page. If it's not showing up after adding it there, then I'll look into it, but I'm not sure I have the know-how at the moment to do much.

As for Message Notifcation, do you mean you AREN't getting messages and want to? (which happens naturally when you get PMs or a new comment in a thread you posted in, or you ARE getting them and you don't want to any longer? If it's the latter, you need to go to that thread and unsubscribe from it. I believe there is a link to that as well from the email notifcations.

Hope this helps.

I have to click on the message tab to see them. Maybe something like "You have 3 new messages" at the front page? It's nothing big so don't worry about it. That's just me being lazy. Wink

Hey Adminassassin. I can see other people's signature in the forums but for some reason, I can't see mine.

AUTOMATIC: Go to your Profile, click "Preferences" and where it says "Always attach my signature : yes or no" change it to Yes. Make sure to save your changes.
I was having the same problem as you until I found this.

You can also do it manually if you don't want your sig in all your posts by doing the following...
MANUAL: Under OPTIONS (found underneath the textbox while posting) you may have to check "Attach signature (signatures can be changed in profile)". If AUTO is off, you have to do this with each new post.

Post  Donth8 on Sat Apr 03, 2010 4:30 pm

Sometimes the site take awhile to load.
Is anyone else having this issue? or is it just my laptop?

Of the two computers I use for this site (home desktop and school laptop), I've found the latter to be slower and loads in a scrolling manner downward whereas the former is usually quicker and stops and loads the whole page at once.

My understanding is limited but from what I gather, bots are automated programs. That is someone wrote a program and the computer or bot, uses that program to randomly generate stuff like replies to simple questions (the bots on MSN do that). Some bots spam e-mails and blogs with the same message, they basically search via google for blogs, or randomly generate e-mails and send to them regardless if that e-mail actually exists. That's basically why you have to fill out those random letters on some blog replies, it is an anti-measure against bots. Anyone with better knowledge feel free to correct me. This is a very basic understanding I've gain via third hand experience with bots.

I think thats pretty accurate. As far as "Google Bots" go (the ones we see here), I believe that its a program google uses to find content for search results. So if on here, there's a thread about bananas and Google sees some activity (a certain number of hits?) then that will be pulled and Google will show it at some point if someone searched for "bananas."

Again, this is only as far as I know and I'm making some assumptions, feel free to correct.
