Will that giant pink box of text always be at the top of every page? It makes sense to have it on the main/log in page, but its getting rather annoying on every page, especially when viewing from a mobile device.

There's an "x" in the upper right corner IIRC that you can push and it goes away permanently. That's what I did.
On r/miniswap under the same name. Please be polite & answer PMs, even if all you tell me is "No thanks," or "I need more time." I expect lower rating to ship first, even if that's me, unless we work something out in advance.

Pretre and HawtFist are correct.
You'll see announcements like that on occasion, as we push out anything we feel is a "must see." Clicking the X will remove it.

Lower rating? You ship first.

Give me a sense of humor Lord. Give me the grace to see a joke.
To get some humor out of life and pass it on to other folk.


I think what this situation needs is some imagination.

Want my help with a BTR or backout? All messages sent/posted should be in CHRONOLOGICAL order. Otherwise, I just won't read it.

That's a feature, not a bug.

Hey,

I keep having issues with my PMs. They just sit in the Outbox and dont go anywhere. Not sure if this is a 'feature' of the new site or not...

Please let me know what to do; I have a half completed trade sitting up in the air, and no way to contact the guy that has my models...

Regards,

In phpBB your outbound messages sit in the outbox until they are read by the recipient. When that happens, they move to your sentbox. That's how you can know whether or not they've been read. It's definitely a feature, but one that's not well explained anywhere.

Ah, did not know that. Thank you for clearing that up for me!

Looks like I'll give it the weekend and then proceed to file a complaint against the guy.

Cheers!

1st line says this, "Below is a list of forums and topics you are subscribed to. You will be notified of new posts in either. To unsubscribe mark the forum or topic and then press the Unwatch marked button.".
Then it says this, "

Watched forums

You are not subscribed to any forums."


Yet there are over 20 "watched topics".

I'm not receiving notices of any of them, including this topic.

Huh?
Heh, I was called a Grognard. ;-)

Sending you a PM to work this one out, rather than spamming the whole thread.

I am having search issues:

Here is my search string:
search.php?keywords=Dark+Age&sid=6c6910 ... 98adf6e23f

Here is the page result after 15 - 20 seconds

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in /home/barterto/public_html/trading/vendor/symfony/polyfill-mbstring/Mbstring.php on line 420

Thanks for the new digs, regardless!
