I have a problem, and this seemed like the only place to post. Every time I try to go edit my profile, i get some error...i can't change anything!! like, in my signature, i didn't know that you can't change the colors...so i want to take the [color][/color] bit out...but i can't go change it! [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]
I had another question, but I forgot it...so until i remember, bye!

I think this thread should be kept for the queries of the kind. So here's mine:


Is there a possibility to turn on the option of saving sent private messages?

thanks

Well, you can have PMs sent to your email...then when you respond to them you still have a copy of what that person sent you. When I want to save something I wrote I just paste it into my word processor. But I don't get/send that many PMs so for you it might get tedious to do that or something. I can't wait to see what the powers-that-be have to say on the matter...

Oh, and another thing. Why does my profile (and everyone elses, it seems) say "Haunting Spirit"? Why doesn't it update?

Why is it that when you post publicly, your avatar is visible, but in PMs it isn't? [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

Why in PMs does your PT or any title not show up in PMs?

And what is the meaning of life?

Yes, the hauting spirit thing rather confused me. Just for the sake of asking a question:
Exactly how many fish ARE there in the sea?

Truely Artalwen, I don't have any clue. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]
But, I do know that when you post in color in the forums, it does get aggrivating after a while.

And....

How come you park on a driveway and drive on a parkway????? [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

Thanks for trying, everyone. I should probably get around to coming here....sorry I don't come here often enough.
I just wish I could change that so it doesn't look silly...oh well.

*shrugs* who knows.

So does anyone know why I keep getting an error when i try to click on the "user cp" icon? Every single time I've tried, with no success. It gets frustrating, for I can't change anything in my profile, or change the options, and if I was to have any private messages, I wouldn't be able to check them.

That's what pops up when I try to click on "my profile"...that's what i meant when I said user cp(i post on many different boards).

Durelin, that's the problem. You cannot change colors in the signature, and really almost nowhere. I know that now...but I didn't even think about it while creating my signature. Now I'd like to change it, but I can't seem to!

This is the same error message I have been getting when attempting to click on to “my profile”. Alright, I know my PMs are full of nice, juicy red apples aimed right at my head, and its probably a good thing that I can’t access them, but hey, my email address has changed, and many other things (no not my sex… pervs), and I am unable to update. A little help would be useful here. Oh, and YES, I did send mail to the webmaster.

Only 3? I was using the link provided in the error message. The 3 you recieved were from the bottom of the forum board.

Bill Ferny and Artalwen, you should be able to access your profiles now. Bill has lost his ratings of other members. Artalwen has lost her rating by others. Otherwise, everything should be fine.

Anyone else having a problem, please copy and paste the error you're getting into this thread as Bill and Arty did, and we'll try to fix you up.

Your avatar seems to be working correctly.
But it is too small, because there is a lot of white on your picture, if you remove the white, it should be just fine.

Yes, that's what it's supposed to be. Since it's not working linked from my site, let's try it from yours...
