  • New Forum question

    I just noticed that the location is missing on all our ID(?) boxes when we post. I looked at my profile and it is listed there......Oh a question....do we need it? I like having it and seeing where posters live and I think it helps when something is posted for sale.

    You don't see faith healers working in hospitals for the same reason you don't see psychics winning the lottery.

    I wholeheartedly agree. Not that there are too many series vehicles around washingtannapolitimore maryland....

      Just spent 10 minutes messing around with it...I liked having the members location shown next to their names too. I didn't find a way to display the member's location, other than a clunky way to do it for a thread's original poster. I'll try to see if this is doable.

        Hey Mark came upon a new glitch tonight. If I want to enter the lat long in the message I can put it in and use the alt button to use the degree symbol, BUT everything after the alt button is pushed is gone. Example, Thirty-eight degrees, zero-five min, zero-five sec N; 38

          Hmm...I’m trying to try it out; Don’t see any degree symbol in any of the available fonts.

            alt + 248 on keypad will get you the degree symbol.

              I use alt and 0176 to get it.

              I just tried the 248 method, it didn't post either.

                    I was just trying to delete some of my sent messages, I selected some them hit the delete tab, it asked me if I was sure, I selected yes, all it does is remove the check in the box. Is there a different way?

                      Just to clarify...it’s PMs you’re trying to delete or posts (replies) in threads?

                        What ever is in the Profile sent folder(?). I didn't try the received folder.

                          OK, I see what's going on now. I went to my "sent" messages folder, selected "all", which checked the boxes on all the displayed messages, then I hit the delete button, and all the messages pretty much stayed there and all the checked boxes became unchecked again.

                          I think that's where you are, Gene.

                          I went further and went to the "trash" folder and saw that those supposedly-deleted messages were now copied to the trash folder. I repeated the above process in the "trash" folder, permanently deleting those messages that were copied to the trash folder, which also deleted the artifacts that were left behind in the "sent" folder as well.

                          I have no idea if some programmer thought this was a good way to do it, of whether it's a bug. My vote's on "bug."

                            Thanks Mark, I'll check my trash folder. I did as you did.

                            That is weird that it also deletes the received files too.

                              Not sure what is going on, every time I check the forum with the what's new tab, it tells me that post #139 on Contractors thread http://www.gunsandrovers.com/forum/g...-misc-projects is new. 4 times now. And to just make it better all 3 posts that are new now are still new. Is there not a mark thread as read button?
