Dazed and Confused

Saturday, September 3, 2011 by Starcandy | Discussion: Forum Issues

Well, I'm guessing I didn't win the Wincustomize subscription for August's screenshot thread. So I decided to buy it today instead.

I've noticed a few things though, and I thought that becoming a subscriber would sort them out. It hasn't, so I need some info and/or help with them.

Firstly, there seems to be a difference between my Wincustomize site when compared to others. I hope you don't mind Doc, but I grabbed a screenshot of your site to illustrate my point.

I don't have that nice charcoal coloured bar or any of the tabs. Is there something I need to do to have one? I've logged out then cleared the cookies and cache for my browser, but that didn't help.

Secondly, on my forum profile my motto doesn't show up, and there doesn't seem to be a place for a list of friends, like others have. Hell, I don't even know how you add someone as a friend. I can't add a favourite skin either. Though on that one I've read two seperate threads regarding the same issue, and there doesn't seem to be an answer beyond "personal sites are not supported", so I figure theres no way for me to add a favourite skin.

Any help/info would be greatly appreciated.

My understanding is that you USED TO be able to make a personal site. If you did, you will still have it. If you didn't you can't make them anymore. If this is incorrect, I am sure a MOD will correct me

Guest books, Friends lists, Photos, Mottos, all are missing in action from the new site. I wish they would come home. From anywhere in the forums, click on the My Account  tab. There you can add your avatar and other info to your site.  Some things on sites created before the changeover can be changed , some are "stuck"  or cannot be edited until the features come back.

Still a no-go I'm afraid, Wiz.

I'd wondered if they were just remnants from a previous version of the site. Kinda' sucks, but not something worth losing sleep over

Thanks for your help everyone. (The site could use an animated hug emoticon. Just throwing it out there.)

Starcandy, I figured it out. I think.

You are a Citizen(1). You have no bar. None of the other Citizen (1)'s have a black bar either.

mrs starkers is an apprentice (2). She has a bar. starkers is a Master Apprentice (3) and has a bar. Wizard1956 is a Journeyman(4) and has a bar. vStyler is a Master (5) and has a bar. I am a Wizop (6) and have a bar.

Soooo - I think it's all tied to rank (level of access). When your access level changes, what do you bet you get a black bar? The only other variable I haven't controlled for is length of time here/member number....

Search around and see if that holds up.

Now gimme my black bar back, you sneaky lurker, you.

Thanks Doc, the theory was holding up... until I got to JuniorCrooks. He's an apprentice; but has no black bar. No matter. It's not like I'm missing out on anything important *sniff*

I doubt 'Guest books' will ever be returning.  They were abused/used by spammers and were shut down following one particularly obnoxious person's use of them....

Guess that shows what a psycho Aussie chick can do when she puts her mind to it....she screwed it up for us all.

I believe the ability to create a personal site went away once the new site went up.

Yeah, and it's not even realistic looking. The head is completely disproportionate to the rest of the body. That's just wrong!
