Re: Ask the Staff v8

Unfortunately the profile stars have not been updated since CoS was only six years old. The profile page doesn't show more than six stars for me either.

Your posts show seven stars, though. But that too hasn't been updated lately and shows only eight stars as maximum.

Re: Ask the Staff v8

Very true- which is why fawkesfan1 made me an extra star- I'm not entirely sure, but I have a vague feeling that I joined within the first year of CoS...and it was very busy then too...

Still an amazing site

Re: Ask the Staff v8

Sorry if my questions sound stupid, but I'm really not very computer-savvy. I was trying to edit my profile page - I saw someone who had as background picture a starry night, which I thought would be perfect for me.

I did get that, to putup a background picture, I had to upload one to my album. What gets me flummoxed are some of the options. What is "padding"? What are "Major block headers" and "minor block headers"? I couldn't understand the options in "borders" either.

Could somebody please help and explain? Thank you.

Just click on a bright color for each one and you'll see what they do. "Padding" adds a border around certain sections. Major Head Blockers are the titles of the main sections of the page. Minor Head Blockers are the smaller title sections. Most of us learn it by fiddling around with it. I hope that helps. If you hate it, just change it back.

Thank you so much, silver ink pot! So kind of you to help.

I'm not quite sure where the bright colors are to click on, but I'll go back and see. I'll eventually get the hang of it. If not, I'll just stay with the default page. I really appreciate your help.

Mine?

I'll send you a screenshot of how mine is set up. If you like, copy my settings, which will give you what i have, and then change what you don't like.

Yes, yours, and you know it.

Thanks so much for the screen shots, it's really awfully kind of you.

Re: Ask the Staff v8

I'm sorry if this has been answered earlier in the thread, but what are the stars next to the names supposed to represent?

They indicate the number of years you've been a member on CoS forums.

The format is:

365 days =
730 days =
1000 days = At 1000 days the stars turn pink.
1095 days =
1460 days =
1825 days =
2000 days = At 2000 days the stars turn green.
2190 days =


The maximum number of stars that will display is 8.

I thought I deleted all of my e-mails that I had stored, but it still says I have 46 stored e-mails. did I make a mistake? Or don't they go away?

Do you mean OWls aka Private Messages? They should go away. Try clearing your cache.

Re: Ask the Staff v8

Did you only delete your inbox? It might be showing owls from another folder such as your sent folder.

Thank you, my inbox was deleted, and my sent messages are in a folder. I will decide at a later time if I need to delete them all.

Re: Ask the Staff v8

Sorry if this was already answered, but why is the US politics sub-forum password protected? I find that a little unusual.

It's because emotions get too wild when our membership debates US politics. The only way to allow US politics to be discussed at all was to create a closed room for it. And let people behave almost as badly as they want in there.

And, btw, don't ask me for the password. Morgoth is the only one who decides who can be let in and who not.

Re: Ask the Staff v8

Understandable I guess. I doubt they'd let me in on the password cuz almost no one knows me here. Do you know the criteria for being told the password or is it people that have been here for a long time and have a reputable disposition?

...more like disreputable disposition.
But charming enough rogues that beguile and entertain!

As I said. It's Morgoth's turf.
