    The official response is:

    We don't believe in time.

    It's a TIME WARP


    (I guess I never really paid that much attention to it before. But for some reason this morning it stood out)

    I still can't create announcement or sticky threads or create posts with polls in the McDune Parody Contest Forum.

    We need to get the voting thread up and running. HELP?!

    Ill look into it tonight. Are you sure, Talos, that you cannot modify a message to be a sticky in the moderator's tab/screen? IIRC, you should be able to do that by clickign on "moderate this post" or "moderate this page," or on the general "moderation control panel."

    today the board time is 13 minutes behind ... it is usually (when I notice) 20 minutes ahead ...

    I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
    how to fully interact with people.

    Nope. Just looked all through the various moderator control panels and I got nuttin.

    I also checked the first contest forum and I can't create new sticky/announcement topics there, either. :(

    Can you go ahead and convert it to an announcement for me? :)

    Once last night and just a few minutes ago (when I posted in response to 'Rider about Byron & KJA's blog), the board has evidently logged me out and required me to log in again before I can post. There wasn't a long enough period between when I logged in and opened the thread and tried to post the reply for the cookie to have expired.

    Have you all changed anything related with the cookie settings? Just wondering, since I haven't seen this behavior before.

    (I'm going to log out after posting this and click the "delete board cookies" link, just in case I had a bad girl scout.)

    Nope, but lately I've noticed the board kicking me off when I click on a link while it's hanging. Did you do that?

    Not that I recall. It's only happened twice so far, but both times I just clicked the Reply button.

    Who knows! :)

    Edit: Wait, I take that back. Both times I hit Quote. The first time I'd been writing a reply and got the error when I hit Submit. Since I clicked Back on the browser, I lost the text I'd typed. The second time I hit quote and the board had the quote reply window ready (with the quoted text in place, I mean) after I logged back in.

    :think:

    The board evidently just logged me out, even though it showed me as being logged in on the front page.

    Any ideas? Anybody else noticing anything strange?

    What are the required sizes for image attachments ? I wanted to post a Dune demotivational poster, but it didn't upload - and it was barely 75 kb and 700x500 pixels big.

    Use an image hosting site like photobucket or imageshack. Use the link provided by the hosting site of your image in your reply between tags and you're good.

    Have the extra smilies been deleted or something? The past few times that I have clicked on the "View more smilies" link there are less smilies showing on the page than is showing on this page next to the reply box. Is it just my computer or is there a technical issue?
