Re: Ask the Staff v7

Even when the option is clicked for me, I still get logged out randomly. This has only been a problem for a few months.

Ha!! I knew about cookies!! I usually eat mine, though...

I tried to see a pattern to mine, too, but I haven't been able to.

Re: Ask the Staff v7

As this question is clearly of a technical nature, please continue here.

Re: Ask the Staff v7

Sometimes in the graphics threads people put pictures in kind of like a spoiler tag, but you can put words on it instead of the words spoiler. How do you do that?

Re: Ask the Staff v7

Are you talking about something like this post?
If so, that's the fieldset tag.
[fieldset=Subject]Text goes here.[/fieldset]
That should come out looking like this:
SubjectText goes here.


If that isn't what you're referring to, please link to a post that has an example and we can go from there. Or you could always try quoting the post to see what coding was used in the post.

No, it wasn't like that. I can't find a post with it in there right now, but it was like a box or a rectangle that opens up to the picture when you clicked on the arrow.

Re: Ask the Staff v7

I think she means expand tags.

[expand="text goes here"]Picture or whatever goes here[/expand]

yields:

text goes here:    


  Picture or whatever goes here

Re: Ask the Staff v7

My E-mail address has changed, but when I tried to change it in my profile I got the Bulletin Message: The administrator has banned your email address. To contact the administrator click here
I tried another new address that didn't work either and did send a message but didn't get an answer yet.
Is it possible to at least delete the old address? The provider has stoped it's service and I won't get notice of anything send there.

Re: Ask the Staff v7

This sometimes happens during email changes (shouldn't, but does). An admin can fix that problem manually, but there's none online right now. If you want to, you can owl one of them directly (Jessica, Morgoth or lanifiel) and they'll probably help you out later.

Re: Ask the Staff v7

Is it a Live account? I know I had a problem a few months ago with that and I was told live accounts are generally blocked because of the probability of it being a spam account

My cousin Lily_Cherie had that problem last summer when she registered. She tried to use her French "free.fr" account and got that message. She ended up opening a Yahoo account. Posted something in here to ask why Free.fr was banned and never got an answer...

Now that one has to answer a Harry Potter-related question before one can register, spam accounts must have gone down, no? I wish I could put up a screening system like that on my own website, where I spend an awful lot of time zapping spam accounts.

O rly?

That's ironic! You'd think someone might want to join the forums to ASK questions, but whatever.

I had that problem once when I switched out my Yahoo! address with my Gmail address because gmail is awesomer but it cleared up after I tried again.

Heehee, you have to prove that you know enough about HP to ask intelligent and meaningful questions before you can join the forum.

My brother had me open a Gmail account to Instant Mail him, because his office firewall was blocking Yahoo Messenger, but I don't like gmail at all. For one thing - a little detail but it can be galling - when you "Reply" to a message, you can't change the subject title, even if you switch topics. Hah, that wouldn't do at all on CoS, would it? You'd be ruled "off-topic" in a flash. Anyway, that small little detail drives me nuts. I actually haven't used gmail for months now. Yahoo's fine by me.

Yes. It's probably really obvious, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to set an avatar. Please help this technologivcally-challenged member.

Avatars are reserved for Hogsmeade members. Here are the Hogsmeade Review Guidelines. Hope to see you there someday.

Avatars are restricted for Hogsmeade members only. In order to get into Hogsmeade, you must have at least 300 qualifying posts and good behavior. Some useful links:

Re: Ask the Staff v7

This may be a silly question, but I was trying to look at the Holiday Calendar again. I was sure it was in "The Cloak" but I can't find it there. Has it been moved, or is my memory faulty?
