I've removed the Message Icon column from the main listing. You can still choose an icon for your messages that will appear before the subject when viewing the interior of the message.

Thanks for your input!

Another quick update and explanation:   

When you view your own forum profile (by clicking the Profile link at the top of the forum), you see your own email address. However, anyone else who views your profile will see hidden in place of your email address.

Because this has caused some confusion, I've added a note that explains it on the profile.

Only the profile owner (when logged in) and administrators can view email addresses.

Hello,
I was checking the old forum and I noticed on the Ever-Changing Monroe topic that there are still posts being made in the old forum. The last dated entry was for 25 June, 2007 and going back to when the new forum started. (unsure of date) I Just thought that I would let you know.
Also, after reading some of the entries, maybe you could consider adding a spell checker.
Thank you.

Edit: The problem of posts on the old forum has been solved. Registration was still being allowed, so people who registered since the forum was made read-only were able to post. This has been corrected. Thanks for the heads up.

Jim's Towing Targets the Disabled for Laughs

Was this thread deleted?  What happened?  I am unable to retrieve this thread.  Like another lister mentioned, I read it, responded, had to leave and when I returned to read it again, it was gone.

Thanks!

But can the author of the original posting delete the entire thread?  That's what happened in this case.

I did some testing and found that users are able to remove a topic if they started it, even if it has replies. This would appear to be the explanation.

I've disabled this feature. You may still delete your responses or topics with no replies, but once someone else has commented, you may not remove the entire thread (though you could still edit the content of your comments).

Thanks for the help ironing this out.

Will discussion threads have expirations as they did on the Monroe News forums? Or will they live forever, for all practical purposes?

Why indicate whether a person is a “New Talker” or an “Active Talker”?

I would think someone could figure that out just by looking at the number of posts tabulated near the authors’ name.

Perhaps you could provide reporter tags to your employees when they’re fishing for contributions to a story (much like your “administrator” tags)
Logged
This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

While reading the New Restaurants thread I saw an advertisement at the bottom of the thread that took me aback.

If this is supposed to be a family oriented/ PG rated site, then how come you have this as one of your advertisers?

https://www.cheaplubes.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=811

No, this is NOT a website for cheap automotive or mechanical lubrication.  This link takes you to a product - the "Tantus Silicone". 

M.E.N guys - talk about LMAO!  That was way too funny!

ML:

Unless we run into unforeseen server-load/server-space problems, threads should not expire.

frenchfry:

I think the only answer to your question is, 'for fun.' Custom titles based on post count is a feature offered by this software. I guess the only other advantage is that it gives visitors a quick idea of who the regulars are. Suggestions for the theme of our titles are welcome.

AttilatheHoney:

We have some control over the national advertising like that you see at the bottom of each of the forum pages, but once in a while, an inappropriate one slips through and we have to go specifically select it in our preferences at the ad service. I assure you that this advertiser is not a direct client, but a third-party ad served by an unpredictable process. We'll continue to try to minimize this kind of content--thanks for bringing it to our attention.

BigRedDog:

You can change / upload your avatar by clicking the Profile link toward the top of any forum page, then click Forum Profile Information on the left menu. There you should find a number of options for using an avatar. Sorry for the confusion...some of the interface might have changed since you first registered.

Let me know if you have any further problems.
