    Tech Help/Tech Support Forum

    Due to inactivity, the Tech Help/Tech Support Forum has been moved from the main index to a 2nd level subforum and is now only viewable when browsing Lighter Side/Off Topic.

    This configuration change was necessary to retain balance in overall forum structure and aesthetic as well as help to keep the scrolling down when viewing our forums index.

    Re: Tech Help/Tech Support Forum

    I wonder if we should change this forum to Tech. Talk rather than Tech. Support since I seem to use it for virtually everything?

    Thoughts?

    Hey bud, it's your sandbox (we just get to play here whenever we want) lol

    Really though why not just name it Tech, but I do believe that Tech Support shows a more definitive use for the forum.. Perhaps Tech Talk, bah I dunno. I am not certain that it matters a whole lot.

    Re: Tech Help/Tech Support Forum

    I was just spit balling is all, really not all that important. I only thought of it because Tech Support is usually for technical related issues of X rather than simply technological based discussions which I seem to personally enjoy discussing.

    Either way it's fine, just popped into my head is all.

    BTW, it's all our sandbox it's just some of us are dirtier than others

    Re: Tech Help/Tech Support Forum

    I think your idea is a good one Duke. When I peeked in the Tech Support area, I was surprised to see what I did so I think the idea of a name change appears more clear. Perhaps add subforum or sticky specifically for Forum Tech Support related inquiries.

    I like the idea of changing it to tech talk.

    My multi-quote button doesn't work, and yes, I've checked it several times.

    I noticed that too the other day.

    Also it would seem that I'm not getting an email when I have a PM. I checked all of my settings and looks good there.

    Oh and sometimes there is a really annoy sound when I make posts.

    You're right, it isn't working.

    I'll look into it but I'm a bit worried that this may be a sign of a larger issue. Assuming this is the case, there may be no resolution to this issue other than a forum upgrade which is still many months away.

    Either way I'll be sure to let you know one way or the other.

    That might be the chat box. You can turn it off at the chat box. I asked Duke if there was a sound or something that the chat box can make when someone posts there so I know when to check and possibly chat. Actually Vautrin and I had talked about it. Duke enabled it a few days ago. Hee Hee.

    If it sounds like a 'Boing-ng-ng' it means someone is chatting in the chatbox. It's a good way of letting members to join in, IMHO!

    I think it can be turned off by you, but, of course, I'm no techie.

    Oh....ok well that's what I get when I'm not around much and just pop in and out. Just heard it again. Good thing there is no one in my office.

    That's hysterical, WDH; if someone did, you may have lots of 'splaining' to do.

    Just kidding!

    -------

    Personally, I think I'm the only one that likes that sound, so that being said, Duke will probably get rid of it!

    I can vouch for that Luba!! He is a hoot and fun to visit with.

    Now, back on topic: I keep hearing the boing from the Chat Box but nothing is showing up. Either there is a ghost posting or the thing has a mind of its own. Unless it also makes the noise when someone posts to a thread. That little box to the right of the chat box shows when someone posts to a thread. Gotta do some tests.

    That's what it is. Since there is such a flurry of activity this morning it's boing-ing a lot.

    Ya, but my test didn't work. It just seems to have a mind of its own.
