I noticed there no longer is an ad from project wonderful on the left of the page, is this permanent or intended?

Forgot to edit, it's there now :)

Emmmmm... I'm a bit confused :|

Which words do you moderators consider offensive?

I mean, WTF and piss off are offensive but crap not, what?
(Results of searching "crap" : http://www.housepetscomic.com/forums/search.php?keywords=crap&terms=all&author=&sc=1&sf=all&sk=t&sd=d&sr=posts&st=0&ch=300&t=0&submit=Search)

There's a list of offensive words?

Why aren't all filtered?

There are degrees of severity. "Crap" is not considered particularly "bad." If something is filtered, the filter will catch it. If it's not, and you think it should be, let us know and we'll consider it.

I've noticed this for a while and never bothered to mention it but on the forum front page I always get error boxes in place of some of the images. Am I the only one like this or is this an ongoing issue to be resolved hopefully at some point? Just askin'.

Did a bit of research on the HTML, the problem seems to be with the resource itself missing in the folder or with its name having been changed, not with the code.

-Edit: Yep, it's the resource missing from the folder it's supossed to be in. (styles/hestia_blue/theme/images/feed.gif), here's the file if you need it --->Image <-----, and the full php stylesheet http://www.stsoftware.biz/phpbb30_style.hestia.html

Simply, the forum theme image called feed.gif is missing from its directory. I guess that's so even years before my registration on this forum.

I'm not sure how to get the post by itself, but to start the page at the specific post you can click on the little arrow in a circle to the left of the post's subject (ie: "Re: Ask A Moderator" on your post) and it takes you to the URL that starts at that post.

You can use http://housepetscomic.com/viewtopic.php?f=[forum number]&t=[topic number] followed by either &start=[post number] or &post=[post number].

The easiest way to link a post though, like Brent suggested, is just to use the little triangle in the top left corner of the post to get the direct URL to that post. ^^

That's odd. I reckon a picture loaded wrong. Try clearing your cache and refreshing the page.

That's odd. Have you tried running a virus scan? Perhaps do that and then clear the cache again and if it's still there then let us know and I'll get Rick/Inaki to check things server-side.
Is anyone else having issues like that?

This sounds like the issue that has happened a couple of times in the past where certain button images turned into something else. I can't find the one discussion where pictures were posted, but Roarin had it happen here.

Just for funsies, try right-clicking the demon face and selecting "Inspect Element (Q)". An extra panel will open at the bottom of the browser (never seen Pale Moon before) with a ton of HTML code, and one line will be highlighted in a light grey. It should be something like
Code:
<img title="Something" alt="SomeSuch" src="SomeURL.png_or_gif_or_something"></img>
or something like that. I want to know what it says.

Then I would like to know what all "div"s it is under. So (if you would) scroll up until you hit a "div" and if its arrow is not pointing directly sideways at the "div" but rather down to the right make a note of it. (You can click the arrow to collapse the HTML under it so things are less cluttered.) There shouldn't be more than like 3 or 4.

This may not help at all, but I'm curious where it's being placed. Cause it's not replacing an image that I can see like the other two incidents were.

How I do to make a thread where only some members can see?

Because I don't want to go the mass PMing way but also I don't want to everyone see the thread >_>

This is something that would require you to be the site administrator. And even then, it'd be a considerable amount of hassle. ;)

I've seen that before! Not here but while coding, its an error in the sites CSS and since browsers don't always know what to so with such errors they treat certain variables as zero and odd things happen because of it
I don't keep images of errors tho sorry... Have you tried updating the browser? Or if not then try a different one, I use mozzilla personally bit that's just prerogative.

Well, each PM can have a maximum of five recipients so it could get confusing quickly with too many people in it.

May I ask why you don't want other people seeing this thread though?

Yo moderators, I got some questions. First, what exactly does the Subscribe link at the top of forums' and topics' pages do? There are some things I would like to be kept up to date about, but I don't want my email inbox filled up. this leads into my next question. my current system is to leave tabs open on topics permanently and I refresh the page to check for new posts. How long after I stop doing stuff does the system realize I'm AFK so to speak and remove the "online" tag from under my name for other people? in Discord you can mute channels. Is there a way, for example, to set it so The Comic forum doesn't tell me there are new unreads if someone posts in something that I'm not interested in like Wild Mass Guessing? Rick sometimes puts a link to the forum between a comics title and tags. When he doesn't, is there a good way to get to the topic for it in Old Comic Discussion? My strategies are to copy and paste the title into the search bar or to sift through the topics by last post date, neither of which is foolproof. Lastly, Is there an easy way to include a past comic in a post because it is already online or would I still need to copy it to photobucket first?

Okay, let's see what I can tell you, not sure about everything. Maybe somebody else knows better.

When you subscribe to a topic you'll get an email when somebody replied. But only on email per topic no matter how many replies there are until you read that topic again. You then get another email when there are new replies.

I'm not sure, but since that list is based on the active members of the last 5 minutes, I'd guess you're out of that list after about 5 minutes of inactivity.

I know of no way to 'mute' sections of the forums, maybe it's possible, but I dunno.

Not sure if there's a better way... I'd try to search for the title or the date.

Copy the direct link to the picture and then paste it into your post using the [img]-tags.

You can also sort the topics by "subject". Since they are (after arc 66) titled YYYY/MM/DD, you can pretty quickly get to a specific old comic (or arc for #66 and prior) discussion thread.

Sometimes when the server is glitching the message from your computer to the server gets through and the message posts but the message from the server back to your computer to say the post is there gets lost along the way. It's not usually a big deal but it can be annoying. If you need to add more information to the post you wrote, just click the "edit" button in the top, right corner of said post. If you've accidentally double posted and the extra info is in the later post then you can poke a mod and they'll delete the older post for you.
