I've just noticed that I have 400 and something private messages out of 150.
Is there anyway to download those messages so it won't take up place on DB?
I wouldn't wanna delete all of them...

The new format looks great, Stephan! Hopefully you have time to do other things in life in addition to this site.....don't know how you do it :)
Keep up the good work.

DeepThought,

There are options at the bottom of the Private Messaging page - http://forums.deeperblue.net/private.php - that allow you to download your Private Messages in Text, CSV or XML format.

10x!
I'll d/l them in all 3 formats since I'm not sure what that means. :)
(CSV-comma seperated values?)

By the way, kudos on the great job, I'm surprised I don't miss the old interface at all.

Thank you. :)

G'Day all,

I seem to be the only one experiencing this problem, but after your server went offline then came back up, every time I try to access it I get a DNS error, like the site doesn't exist? This happens for all the pages I have bookmarked, including the home page, forum main page and a few different posts. At the moment I'm looking at it on a public computer, but for now, slacking off at work and looking at it there doesn't seem to be an option... :(

Cheers,


Brad

well, if it's a DNS problem maybe accessing the site's IP directly (72.3.131.143) would help...

There shouldn't be any reason why you can't access the sites. We switched over a few weeks ago so all DNS changes will have propogated.

Can you do me a favour - can you email or PM me the results from a "ping" on any computer that can't access DB. You can ping by going to a command prompt and running the command "ping www.deeperblue.net".

I tried the IP this morning and got no response - this time though its a "500" error, something about a bad server? I'm thinking (actually I'm pretty sure) it may have something to do with the server - they usually don't like people accessing non-work related sites, but it worked fine before the site went offline, and if you do access a "bad" site, it comes up with a different warning...
I can't ping the address either, the machines we use don't have a hard drive, but are booted straight off the network... so no access to a command prompt or a C drive

Question: according to your FAQ at the top, Stephen, there is a functionality to upload a new user pic (besides an avatar I mean) Yet when I click on your included link it gets me to a "you can't go there" message. What's up?

FreeFloat,

You should be able to go to your UserCP and then click on Profile Picture to add a 100x100 Photo of yourself. See my profile for an example

Thanks.............. now I have to see if I actually have any sort of picture that won't become hopelessly garbled when shrunk to 100x100. What are our chances of getting "Profile" pics larger than avatars?

Since the forums were upgraded, my user profile has become 'Registered User' and I can't find any option to change it on my Control Panel. I don't know whether I'm still allowed to change it. :confused:

I hope someone can help.
