Your handle had been registered twice, oddly on two consecutive days but by different folks.
Since yours was the first, by just one day, I added a "2" to the other "serial griller" and you should now be able to update your prof…
Is your email address a comcast address?
We are currently having trouble getting email through to comcast customers -- they have blocked our email server for reasons that are not yet clear.
We are working on the problem.
There have been many discussions on this topic in the past.
Eventually, we'll upgrade again, but in the meantime, there are views other than "classic" which you might like better. We added "classic" view to facilitate the transition …
We don't really want to ban real "guest" posts, but unfortunately it is difficult (though not entirely impossible) to tell a legitimate "guest" post from an "anonymous" one (i.e. someone posting under an alias something they know they…
Mark J. Collins,
I triggered a confirmation for each account.
Hopefully you have mail.
You should check your "spam" or "junk" mail folders; and, also if possible add "eggheadforum.com" to your "whitelist" of non-junk mail.
Yes I can fix this for you.
Your handle is one of many that was duplicated before we blocked duplicate handles (the handle field is really intended for a name, which can normally be a duplicate, but we use it for the "nickname", or han…
I triggered another confirmation email, but if you didn't get the first one, you may have an issue getting email from our server.
Let me know if you don't receive this. You might also check to see if you can add "eggheadforum.com" to…
I forgot to mention that ignoring specific guests is problematical since they can post as anything they wish.
I know Teeve-tip got off on the wrong foot around here and ruffled some feathers; but if he genuinely wishes to take a…
Ah, I rarely post as a guest, but that explains why so many seem to assume I'll know who they are. The address doesn't show up on the post. It may indeed be in the database, but privacy reasons, email addresses are not shown. I'll probab…
Your handle was one of many that had been used more than once before we added the unique restrictions on the handle.
Since yours was first one registered (by just a few months), I modified the second to "panhandle smoker2" wh…
The rule was never supposed to be "register to post", but since we've had so many complaints lately about "guest posts", and, since some think they should be allowed, and others do not, the "ignore guest post" feature allows those that thi…
Tweeve-tip is correct, though possibly, "... been though all this" could have been omitted; and, there is another possibility that he did not mention.
The banner collapse is indeed controlled by a cookie setting; so, if you delete…
Unfortunately the post appears to have been deleted; so, I cannot determine the ip address.
Yes, you may indeed tend toward the "reactive" side at times, but I've seen also that you've been provoked at times. This is usually the c…
There appears to be a bug in the component we use to manage the profiles.
I'll have to investigate. It has become far more of a problem since the "ignore" flag was added to the profile -- now there's a new reason to edit it.
