I just noticed at the side profile under words "Member No." an entry called "Warn" followed by a percentage plus five boxes. What does this mean? A warning to all members that they're given five strikes then out? When I click the % figure, I get a popup window with two columns titled 'Warned By' and 'Notes'.

I reckon this can be viewed only by the member personally (and MODERATOR's all-seeing Eye) since I don't see it in other members' post.

Well well....I go away for a while and everything changes.

Good to see a newer format though.

Hope all is well.

The forum has acted up several times today. I would hazard a guess the SQL still isn't quite right. That or it's all franko's fault. B)

No. It's the mere mention of UN and/or French bashing that's making the software hiccup. :lol: ;)

Actually, the old software was VERY long in the tooth and was getting close to implosion. It was a choice of doing it now under controlled circumstances or trying to rebuild from the wreckage once something serious happened. There's hope of putting an old Tanknet face on the new software but it's a work in progress right now and seeing as the full weight of conversion rests on one or two shoulders (mine not being of the one or two) it's a lot of effort.

I get it now. At the board stats, when a user's name is italicized, that guy's posting. Regular format means reading. Dang... great software!

Hehe just realized it a few minutes ago hehe (slooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwww............) :lol:

When the new software was introduced, I liked the addition of the email notification of responses. However, that stopped working shortly afterwards and hasn't worked since - a permanent glitch?

Has the format changed again?

All of a sudden I'm getting topics posted in the conventional order, rather than the traditional Tanknet 'Backwards' arangment.

We've decided to go "conventional". I too was rather confused for a few minutes when I signed on today.

I, too, got confused... Gonna miss the "unconventional" conventional TankNet way.... (since TankNet was the first Internet forum I participated, I got used to its "backward posting" style and see the other "conventional 'last-post-at-last-page'" unconventional hehehe)

Yeah, it sucks to go from Leader to "Led". Incidentally, a "clue alert" posted by Stephan on another thread helped me a lot. You can choose "+Linear" in the topic title (it will "remember" your choice next window or time you open it) and it will keep the original topic post on top.
