when i go into "my attachments" they all show up as a list, at the top it says (basically the same thing it said on version 3 when attempting an upload from within the post)

You have used 14.4 MB of your 500 kB attachment limit.

there is no option to delete any of them except one

 

as a new member, looks like you have a 500kb allowance, keep uploading and see if you hit your limit

nice pizza btw, did make it yourself ? ...looks very lean on kilobyte calories

aha!!!!

 

now it works

 

that has just been added to my attachments quota and my quota has been increased

 

You have used 14.7 MB of your 19.5 MB attachment limit.

wouldnt mind being able to delete some old ones though

 

one of them has a delete icon, only one and it says

No locations to display. The content may not have been saved yet or may have been deleted.

 

??

ok i have found another workaround

if i use old attachments and just post them, i can then delete them from the new post

i just deleted that dont panic pic from before and it has gone from my attachments list and quota increased as well

cool

 

there was a magic wand indeed

thanks Caniffe

this should help a few who have a similar problem

 

edit: confirmed, it works !!!!

2 minor issues:

  1. Noticed that current and archived topics are all visible. Is there a way to denote which topics are current, which ones archived?  The only way I knows is to open the topic.
  2. Not personally worried about it, but perhaps it indicates problems with posts: my total post count was a 100 higher in the previous version.

Still got the following message but didnt seem to matter.

dunno mate, maybe try zooming it to fit, but thats a pain as well

its probably designed for mobile devices seeing everyone is staring into one these days,

Yes I would say it would stuff up other sites I visit if I zoom it in. I'm using a IPS 23 inch monitor.

Using Firefox, i zoomed this page, but any new tab didnt zoom,

even if i go to a new website from this same tab, it doesnt zoom, returning to DTV it remembers the zoom setting, even in the same session tab

are you using Firefox, BM ?

Some feedback on the main page look and feel.

It might just be the format shift but its really suffering from more is less IMO. I'm in condensed view.

The topic title is great.

Underneath that is the Tags (what's up with the multi colours?). I'm not sure they're needed here. Does anyone scan down the pages of topics looking for "4K" in a tag and click to see what its about? The tags are user created so there's no standard ones. IMO tags are great to help searches but anyone willing to take the time to add them to a thread will have obviously put some thought into the thread title? They should be hidden.

The 'Toms post has been commented on by Philip' provides the same info as the old forum but you have to work hard to read whole sentences and parse it. The old approach of two columns (Post Creator and Last Commented By) was clear and straight forward. I'm guessing though that with things like RSS feeds the sentence format provides more flexibility? 

I don't expect these things to change but I wanted to add my 2c

Yeah I was at 7200 something last week... seems to have dropped back to 5000, odd. :blink:

Scorch, I recall not long before OT was closed (2 years now?) post counts for OT were stopped, everything before that was still counted.

Not sure about this 5 year figure you speak of... ;)

Not that it matters a great deal... but a post is a post wherever it may be made. :)

Please explain, I have lost 4000 posts since the change, why?

Does it matter? (Although it is nice to have overtaken you in the post count Chopsus :))

I suspect the new posting status symbol will be reputation points anyway. They're in colour too.

Mixo,

"My content" has been replaced with "activity stream"... there is options in that sub-menu for "content I posted in", "content I started" and "unread content", plus various sorting options. You can also go to your profile and click on "my activity" etc. :)

wow, thats a pretty good feature, might try it for myself, lol

"will i win lotto this saturday ?"

 

NOPE

 

 

 

BM, i manged to add the + and - tabs into my toolbar at the top, then if you click the "133%" it resets the zoom

looks like the new version of Firefox has taken that option out and you have to go via the <view> menu

just updated to v47 and all that is the same

dont know

Peeps, we're not going to have a debate about post counts.  If post counts are of importance to you, I am happy to reset yours back to 0.

If they happen to go back up after some of the missing posts are re-spliced, great - but if not, move on with your week!

I'm experiencing a problem with the site.  If I go to http://www.dtvforum.info, everything is OK, but if I go to http://dtvforum.info, I get an error most of the time.

There appears to be an error with the database.

Must have been mentioned above but clicking thread links takes you to the 1st post instead of the last?

Peter,

You can also click on the star or bold dot next to a thread and that should take you to the last unread post in that thread.

Thank you for this.  Updated so this should work progressively over the next few hours.

Thanks. IMO pretty unintuitive for users though. People click the link to take them where they want to go, not read the text and then find another link to do it.

IMO the default behaviour should take you to the most recent post.

Been looking at Activities.

In "Content I Started", showed only 5 topics, and I am pretty certain I have started more!  2 of the topics have truncated posts: Good Sacd, Dvd-A And Blu Ray Audio References started 11 Apr 15, first post 9 Sep 15  Star Wars: Watching Sequence started 23 Oct 15, first post 6 Dec 15, poll results still there but no ability to change vote (as per old version).

Worked out how to create and save an activity stream to show unread posts since last visit, but I accidentally created 2.  How do I delete 1 of them?

Hi.  I found that not all forums that I used to follow were showing up as being followed, but worse still, in order to add them back, I had to visit numerous forum pages and configure notifications for each of them separately.  Is there a quicker and easier way that I have missed?

For example, in order to receive notifications for all the Geographical Viewers Forums, I'd have to visit the Geographic Viewers Forums page, then each of the 6 regional pages, then each of the 15 subregional pages, and set notifications for each, for a total of 22 page visits and 15 notification settings.  Then there are the other forums.  In the previous version of the website, you could do all that on one page, just choose that one and that one and that one and not that one etc. and that was it.

I have no fix for that yet, but I've asked the question.  I think its a feature ;)
