So I hit quote at the bottom of your reply, and it brings me to this "Reply to this topic" box....but with no quote......

that said, thanks for your replies, maybe it's a browser issue or something.

The quote doesn't show up in the "Reply to this topic" box after you clicked it? Hmm...

Another way to quote someone is to copy and paste their text with the ["quote"]["/quote"] without the (") and put the copied text in between. Thing is with this, it doesn't have the timestamp and the member's post mentioned, so it may not notify them when they are quoted.

I see a lot of people that will just say in response to nameofperson and then copy and paste the bit they are referring to in quotes and then craft their reply who haven't figured it out either or are having technical problems so this may work as a short term solution for you.

...another way...is to copy and paste...

....another oddity, I can't copy/paste. I'm NOT computer illiterate....I've tried Ctrl C / Ctrl V, tried right clicking and copy/paste, tied using "editor options" within the "reply to this topic" text box, tried copy/pasting out to MS Word (I can copy out, but not back in) and nothing works. I'm on a fairly new laptop with Windows 8.1....not having issues on other sites. Just kinda odd here.

Anyway, thanks again, at least with this quote /quote thing I have a work around, though a pain that I have to manually retype the quote.

Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V didn't work for me when using internet explorer on Windows 8.1, and still don't work now using Edge on Windows 10, however Chrome and Firefox work fine on both OSes. Might be worth trying a different browser?

( :ph34r: Chrome is better anyway :p )

^^ the copy paste situation is definitely a browser issue. I have the same, IE won't copy paste whilst Chrome has no problem

I would PM an admin the login name you're using, and you can try to send yourself your password.

Is there an app for AVEN? And if not are there any plans to create one?

Currently, there is no app for AVEN. The idea to create a app has been brought up a couple of times, but I don't think it's really feasible right now given the resources the site has.

Not for AVEN specifically, but there are apps for forums that use this software in general. Search for IPB on your app store. I'm currently using one called IPB Buddy for iOS.

Do we no longer do .gif's as profile pics?

Charade is supposed to be running around in circles chasing his tail.

There are .gif as profile pictures, the only thing I can think of is possibly the size of the image being too large?

Could I please have one of my posts deleted or a certain thread removed from my content?

A while back there was a spammer posting in Korean. I jokingly responded to the thread in Japanese thinking the spammer would be banned and the thread deleted. While the spammer was banned, the thread was not deleted, but seemingly moved to a forum I don't have access to. Since then other spammers have been replying to it like mad and the post now has 32 pages and nearly 1k replies (all by banned members).

The thread in question:

http://www.asexuality.org/en/topic/126716-레드카지노《-550boxcom-》레드카지노/

Thank you for your time.

I think that the link is likely from the user's notifications and if they were to click it, they'd get an error.

Thank you both very much.

I could see number of pages, number of replies, and who replied last from the my content page. However, like Lia said, all I got when clicking on it is a message saying I can't see that forum, and I linked that.

Sorry for the trouble, and thank you again.

What is the "member title"? What is it's intent / purpose? How is it used by Aven? Why is it auto populated for me as "Amobea" and why am I unable to change prior to reaching 199 posts?

Don't need answers to each specific question above. Any general context you can provide would be appreciated.

This recently compiled topic pulled together a lot of question/answers from other topics, one of which is about member titles. Have a look:

List of How-To's

There are a couple of other links in that answer about member titles, too, leading to a full listing of all the titles. I think they're just for fun.

The post just above you includes the link to AVEN'S how to list. In there it talks about how to upload a picture. In shorts, you have to use an image hosting site and copy the link from there. [*img][*/img] (without the *) is the prompts used to make sure the image displays

No, it's an actual post with content that I can read in my e-mail notification.

Was trying to change my ignores and was told repeatedly that my identity couldn't be secured, or something like that.

If you PM me a link to the thread I can try to figure out the issue.

Ignore prefs have been on the fritz for a while. It's not even something an Admin can adjust in the ACP. I think we have to wait for an IPB update.

I already deleted the e-mail, therefore, I don't have the link anymore, however, I'll remember to PM you in the future when this happens again. Thanks!
