Minor niggle. The favicon for the mobile version differs from the full fat version, causing the bookmark on the desktop browser to keep changing icon to some generic IPB one after a sync.

Even though I tick 'remember me' the site tends to log me out more frequently now, has the setting changed? Thanks.

I'll investigate this. I'm not sure where that setting is, but if I can find it, I'll change it.

 

Even though I tick 'remember me' the site tends to log me out more frequently now, has the setting changed? Thanks.

 

I haven't experienced this personally - is anyone else noticing the same?

I should add I did change my password recently, could it be a 'clear your cache' issue?

Is there any way to  'go to'  the last posting or bottom of page in any topic, even if read ?  aside from scrolling.. 

 

And/or is there any good reason why the pages are so long ?

 

Thanks, Bfg.

The pages are so long because Dave made them so.

When I first joined up 10 years ago, I'm sure they were 15 posts long. Then it was 20, then 25, now 30.

 

It can be a problem for me in Rural Backwatershire, especially if there are lots of pictures etc.

Hello Darlinks!

 

 

I can attach a picture.jpeg to a post via the "more reply onions"  button  but how may I attach a video?  Will you only accept curtain  video format file extensions?

 

 

Thanking you very many.

Hello, daft question, I have had the message asking me if I wanted to update my email address. I did as BT have deleted my old one. I tried to do it, had a few problems as I forgot my password, but it won't accept my new email account saying it is already in use. What am I doing wrong?

I'm not keen on the 'thanks' button. On a touchscreen , it's too easy to thank someone by accident. If I feel the need to thank someone, I'll write a reply.

You can always "unthank" them with the "unthank" button.

In my AS beginnings, I seem to remember that I when attempting to post pictures directly to the site there was a limit of about three at a time or summat (it might just have been my computery klutziness though). I subsequently used Photobucket for everything but it really causes my balls to ache and I'm on my fifth account having filled four already with AS pics. My question is; can I now post pics direct with impunity now? I don't want to clog up the server or whatever unnecessarily with another 30 pages of spots and rubbish. Will they be stored permanently? Or more reliably permanently than Photobucket?
Please bear in mind that I am idiot and don't really understand servers and computerising and all that shizz.

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

I think we've always had a blank calendar. Members can put events in there if they want. Might be worth promoting doing that for AS events and/or events that members think are worth of mention?

Mercrocker - could you check the version of Chrome you are running and let us know? Possibly a bit drastic but are you able to uninstall and reinstall chrome?

 

Does the issue happen on Firefox or IE/Edge?

On the mobile version, an icon seems to be missing for the 'you've posted in this thread' icon, so you just get a failed pic image cluttering up the list of threads.
