Whoops! I did some poking around and it seems about a random split as to who has Users Recent Posts and who doesn't. The fix-it folks are aware and are figuring it out.
It's Sunday. We're working on your questions, thanks. More as soon as we know it.
So there are no edit or delete buttons either, just like thre is no way to kill the account. So....once something is written here it is written in stone unless the all powerful want to delete it? Am I understanding this correctly?
Hi, How does one delete their account.
marye, when I look at YOUR profile, "user's recent posts" IS there. Just not on mine or pretty much anyone else's I've looked at.
The system obviously knows there are posts that I have not viewed yet in some topics under "All recent posts" , and none in others....
Can't it go directly to the new ones instead of the very beginning of every discussion?
And after you post a message, must it go back to day one of the discussion instead of just back to the post you just made?
Having to scroll though the enitire history of a topic to view new posts could get quite cumbersome as the history grows.
Nope.. it's definitely not on mine. I'm using the ATT/Yahoo browser.
Yesterday I looked at the profile of someone who'd just introduced themselves and under their "website" was "N/A" (underlined) which I clicked, and THAT took me to 'user's recent posts'. But it didn't show up on the front page of their profile.
AIl that's on mine is 'shows attended', the "more" button just displays more shows.
Just for kicks I just tried putting "n/a" on the website space in my profile, of course it woudn't let me do that, it highlighted it red and didn't take.
lol... the location map on my profile puts me on the equator just off the coast of Camaroon. And I thought I was in California all this time.
I swear, I'm seeing a perfectly normal User's Recent Posts on my profile too. Every bit as ill-behaved as izzie says, but there. Perhaps an obscure bug is involved here.
If the problem persists, please let us know (also what browser you're using and anything else you can think of that might be relevant) and we'll pass it to the wizards for examination...
Wendy - thanks for clearing that up for me and sorry for not getting it the first time! I have it on both of my accounts - it's under the Shows Attended section there on the right. Can anyone else let me know if they don't have that feature? It doesn't work great, and takes me back to where I'd last posted in a few forums, but that's something at least. I like using the All Recent Posts and sorting by Forum to see what is new for me that way.
and Mindbender - yeah, for now. Editing was a concern for the changing-history thing, and because it was hooked in the code with Reply and that was behind the weird chronology of posts issue that folks were asking about. It is being looked at and worked on though to see if the magic-fingered folks can find a way to do 30-minute editing or something without it messing anything else up. Bottom Line: it's a software thing.
is editing our posts turned off for good?
