    Paid Member Update

    Dave ~ simplyconnected, our great Webmaster, has just recently revamped our PayPal Paid Membership link!

Just click on it to take you to PayPal, which has two options, pay through your PayPal account, or pay by Debit or Credit Card. There is a third option and you will find that in the Membership Benefits & Webspace Information Forum, at the top of the Forum. It will tell you how to pay by check if...

    Dave, jopizz and I have been hard at work checking the new software and trying to figure out how to make things work like they used to, (if we can). Some of the things that did not get picked up in the upgrade are the avatars, and your signature pix. (More on this later). Also the User Ranks regarding what position you might hold, like Registered, Paid Member, Moderator, Administrator, User Titles, and...

    Technical Resource Library (TRL) Link Fixed.

    I have fixed the link to the Technical Resource Library (TRL). To access it from that Topic, click on the word "HERE". It will take you right to the TRL. Secondly, if you want to see everyone's signature elements and pix, then select POSTS instead of Latest Activity. The latter does not show you the signature elements of each users posts. By using POSTS you can see and...

    Finding Old Threads/Topics or Posts From Our Old vBulletin Forum...

    Anders asked if there was any way to locate posts from the Old VB version and there is! Bring up User Profile and put the mouse on About. There you will find a lot of information regarding you and your User ID. Down at the bottom you should see Links and below that, a list of things to Find, like All Posts, All Started Topics, etc.. Clicking on Find all started topics...

    Canned and Custom Avatars

    Our great Webmaster, Dave ~ simplyconnected, has recovered our canned Avatars, User Ranks, User Titles, Reputations and restored them into our new VR version. So you should be able to pick up and upload the canned Avatar you were using before into your User ID. If you are a Paid Member, you should also be able to upload your custom Avatar and signature element from your PC and recover what you had previously....

    Differences between Notifications and Messages

    YellowRose
    December 22nd, 2018, 09:49 AM

    The question has come up as to what is the difference between Notifications and Messages... Apparently Notifications are received when a new thread or post is made. Messages are when someone sends you a Private Message.. That is what I am learning, as Dan Leavens is posting this morning as he often does on various subjects. His posts are coming to me as Notifications of new posts......

    John and I just figured out why Registered Users cannot select the various Color Combinations that are available to us as administrators! The option to select a preferred Color Combination for Registered Users was turned OFF, so we activated it for all Registered users. The option to allow them to all be turned on had only a very few active. So we turned them all on and saved them, and both John and I were able to set our Registered User ID we test with, to chose any Color Combination we wish to....

    Exceeded quota of PM messages Error Message...

    One of our members attempted to PM another but received this error message when he tried to send a PM to Carl ~ partsetal. "exceeded quota of PM messages". Carl was also getting that same error message as he tried to use the Private Message feature. He went through his Message Center Inbox and Sent Items box and deleted a ton of his old PM's to try and clear it, but the error message did not go away. What you MUST do after you...

    UPDATE: Canned and Custom Avatars

    I am still seeing a lot of our registered unpaid users with grayed out images of them. With the recovery of a lot of our images by Dave recently, those of you who do not have a canned Avatar image showing can pick one of the free ones to use on your posts. All of our registered users can select a canned avatar, and our Paid Members have the privilege of choosing a Custom one. So you should be able to pick up and upload...
