Hi Mooly,

Thanks for all your hard work in debugging this. Normally the software sends email when someone posts a new thread. It would make sense that if a new member who is under moderation made a new post, that an email wouldn't be sent, because that post might not be approved for an hour, a day, or ever.

Obviously, when the post is finally approved the software should go back and send mail out again, but I guess they didn't work through that logic very well as there are cases such as what if a regular member posts following the moderated members unapproved post.

Anyway, I'd say (guess) the problem is that VB only has a hook to email when an unmoderated post is made, and not when a moderated post is approved. I agree, this sucks, and I'll see what can be done about it. Of all the users who would appreciate other users getting replies, it would be new users who are already confused enough about why their posts don't show up for a few hours in the first place (and I think it's poorly signposted anyway).

Perhaps fixed in VB4

thanks for looking into it anyway... what you say makes sense re the way in which the notifier appears to work, but some form of "catch up" would be good... there must be quite a few new members wondering why they are getting no follow ups once an initial reply has been made to their thread.
It's 'cos we don't know you replied back lol.
The notifier is the only realistic way to keep track when you post to a lot threads.

Thanks

Default Attachments problem

When trying to add an attachment (a .jpg of a schematic) I tried both the icon and the "manage attachments" button. In both cases it asked me to log in, even though I was logged in. So I logged in, again, but it didn't accept that. So I can't send the attachment. This is a schematic of my proposed preamp for my TDA1532 amplifier project.

Would it work if I emailed it?

Thanx
The Happy Hippy

Were you under moderation at the time ? and was this a new thread you had started ?

The manage attachments tab should open a new window for you to "browse" your pc and find the file. Having found and selected the file, click upload. After a few seconds a message appears, "uploading files". When complete scroll to the bottom of the page and click "close this window"

Your .jpg should now show as attached to the message

Default Time warp?

OK I followed your advice and I think that my schematic was uploaded. BUT, when I checked on it, the screen kept recycling, as if it were stuck in a loop. So I don't know if the .jpg sucessfully made it or not. I guess we will see. It's getting late here, so I'll try to look at it in the morning.

Thanx

It should show as soon as you post your message... they never used to show (before new forum format) if you tried to preview your message.
If you edit a message it "disappears"... just refresh the page after saving your edited message changes.

Hi Jason and diyAudio Crew,

I was reviewing my user CP and going through the treads that I as listed as being subscribed to. Some of these threads are ones that I do enjoy being notified about new post and developments but many threads on the list are not really important and I began my efforts to delete my subscription.

I figured that by deleting my unwanted subscriptions that I would benefit from not being notified via email about threads I no longer have an interest in, and that diyAudio would benefit in reduced server processing etc.

BUT what I discovered is that some of the threads I attempted to delete were very difficult to kill off!!!! Like undead Zombies from some sort of grade B movie they would say they were deleted only to reappear upon the next search for subscribed threads. The only clue I have to suggest as to why this might be happening is that if I posted to a thread x number of times then it will take a like number of request to really (and finally) kill of that subscription.

I have trimmed things back from something like 340 subscribed threads to around 160, but the effort has taken quite a few hours to attempt, and is made even more time consuming by having to go back and delete a subscription more than once.

Your db administrator might want to take a look into what is going on with that as the benefits in reduced server storage capacity and bandwidth should result in some pretty good savings.

BTW Im not sure that being automatically subscribed to a thread simply because I responded to it as some point is a good thing. Is there a box or something somewhere that kills off the auto-subscribe feature and leaves it up to me to manually add my subscription?

I was pretty surprised to see that many of the threads I was auto-subscribed to were simply there as the result of having said hello so a new member and because I take the time to do that often there were a bunch of subscriptions there. I shudder to think what Plant10s and Cals subscribe list looks like!!!!!

Please take this as constructive feedback and attempt to help improve the way things work in the server side of the world.

Best wishes,
c2cthomas



Ah-Ha! in "Default Thread Subscription Mode" I have discovered how to stop the auto-subscribe thingy!! Doh!!
