    Has my reputation point machine -engine -thinghy been disabled or something. I dont seem to get the opportunity to tell the person why I have given them a point (or taken away) any more. Unless something has changed and its all anonimous now?
    There was once a time when you had a box that you could say why or why not you liked or did not like a post or thread.

    Have you recently upgraded to IE 7 ?

    If so, try right clicking on the "Post Feedback" button and then "Open in New Tab" ... that should get the feedback box to come up in the new tab. Just close that tab when you are done.

    When you click on "post feedback" you should see the option to leave a comment.

    Jeff, a bit of even handedness if you are going to moderate the forum.

    I gave lazeyjack a tune up last week for being obnoxious to another forum member. lazeyjack went spastic for three days in reply, and not a squeak out of you.

    You did not moderate last weeks posts, so why delete mine today?

    Jeff, you let that guy sound off last week and have not allowed me the right of reply in kind.

    Two wrongs do not make a right. I do apologize if I missed posts that you feel are totally off-topic, offensive, or a personal attack against yourself or anyone else. If you click the "Flag for Moderator" and enter a short message like 'personal attack' or 'spam' this does help me to catch things and I do appreciate the help in keeping the forums on-topic and an interesting and friendly place for all.

    Fair enough.
    Thank you for responding so quickly.

    In future I shall not take the weight of the world on my shoulders.
    I will flag messages for moderation and leave it to your good judgement whether the post remains.

    Sincerely rayk.

    i should like to clear up a few points
    Firstly the member rayk purports I insulted, was not in fact insulted, I was extemely mild with him, given that he had called me a *******, in neg feed and in a thread
    Rayk then waded in with a vicious attack upon myself
    I retaliated, naturally, since then he has posted in 4 threads attempting to discredit me, and has in fact called me amongst other things, a liar. I did not retaliate But such accusations are in a real world libellous
    Anyone who could post such filthy vitriole really should not be here* A LYING TURD* Is one of the things he put in Vegas' forum, still I did not retaliate for there is nothing one to do to win against this sort of depravity
    I only ever post the truth, always my posts are based upon knowledge and experience
    i can see that Longliner is an intelligent man, we just have totally different views on many things, BUT I think we both have a heart and we can I,m sure forget our differences
    With others who have so much hatred in their makeup, there is nothing I can do to help, just feel sorry for them
    I have received much backup in IM
    I thinkyou should remove the neg feedback thing from this site What purpose can it achieve? We all have different politicall positions, and to post neg feed because one does not agree, is plainly churlish, immature and just plain wrong.All that happens is that SIDES form and these factions then club together to reduce ones feedback Wheras, pos feed should be given to real contribution

    lazeyjack, you have threatened to visit me three times. What did you intend to do when you get here?
    I posted a single post last week reminding you to mind your manners, and had to put up with you following me around the forum with personal attacks. Much the same as longliner45 had to put up with.
    Your behaviour is really rather woeful. Here and in other forums where you have posted.
    Negative feedback has been a really hard thing for you to handle. Maybe you should stop posting personal attacks on members. You got a taste of your own medicine.
    People who live in glass houses shouldnt throw stones.

    There is a common thread to your online presence lazeyjack.
    It is not sociable.

    Jeff,
    I've been visiting the 'who's on line' facility, and I noticed the annoying presence of Yahoo! Slurp Spider. What is this? Can it be avoided?
    Cheers

    This "Yahoo! Slurp Spider" is the Yahoo search engine's crawler. You can see that the spiders put a lot of extra load on the server, but it's quite beneficial for new people to find the threads as they search so we get potential new members and viewpoints finding the forums.

    I could probably change the default who's online display to logged-in members only (there is a toggle in dropdown at the bottom to show members, guests, spiders, etc. but it's not saved as a preference to the database at present)

    I still have to seach to get the thread 'Idiot posts"

    Is this something I can fix myself or something I have to live with.

    Secondly only the other day the forum would not let me post. I had typed out a post and a quotation from another memeber but it refused to accept saying it was too short. It was about 300 words.

    Have I got worms? or something.

    Other members have made comments suggesting that they too had had small unusuall dificulties.

    Jack - 'Marketplace' and 'Forum Questions and Suggestions' do not appear on the new posts page. The idea was to keep "today's new threads" for threads about boat design; Threads in 'forum questions and suggestions' would be primarily interesting to me as the moderator and to the original poster (who is notified via email when there is a reply anyway); and the marketplace forum, being moderately commercial in nature I didn't think should be forced in everyone's face when 10 new items were posted; I figure if someone were in the market they will visit that forum, so we can keep everyone happy by having a place to post project boats and such, but not forcing it on anyone.

    See my previous response at http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/showpost.php?p=141469&postcount=252

    As far as the message too short message, either you may have hit it at the moment I was working on the server producing an odd result, or else possibly you had an open quote tag (quotes don't count toward the message length) -- other than that I have not seen this behavior. Let me know if you get it again.
