I find it extremely infuriating when I'm uploading photos to the server.

When I finally succeed sometimes the piccy has uploaded a few times.

Just to let you know this is not the same as hot linking that you do with photobucket....I'm talking about the upload thing under Additional Options !

I can rarely get that feature to work right for me! Once in a while but thats it!

man i have never managed to get that working, although i think i am the problem there.

Yeah Thats how I feel too about that option.. although I used it once today and after several attempts did something right and it worked.. But I could not repeat it when I tried another photo!

I actually find it very useful...especially for people who can't seem to see pictures which are hotlinked (Dan/Mirage for instance).......it's easy just to reduce a picture in size and then upload away........when the systems working right that is !!

I need someone to teach me how to shrink my pictures as that tool always says my pictures are too big!

Hey Carolyn.. I just went into your profile and pulled up your posts because you were the last post in my new thread about what you want to do before you die. from your post in your profile I hit reply and made my post and it seems to have gone into the thread twice, but I still can't open it from chat.. try it with another thread that won't open and look at the last person to post go to their profile and find their last post in that forum and reply to it from their profile.... see if it will work for you too! I have been trying back doors to get in!

Last night, I couldn't get on to The Naked Scientists and was the reason because
the server had gone down or was it another technical reason as this happened
twice last week.
Why?
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.

Unfortunately it's a recurring theme here. Though, it has been better behaved since this newest version of the forum came live.

It is being investigated.......and hopefully a resolution will follow.

Thanks for your input.

Twice today (Wednesday) TNS has shown me the IE offline message while I am online and I don't know the reason for this unless the server was down.

Or the board was down because it is so popular.

Does anyone know the reason.

Why can't I mark this topic read?

http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=18100.0

I've read it a few times, also put a little check mark in the box and clicked "mark as read" and it still doesn't.

I know this is not a problem of massive proportions, but it's driving round the bend!

This has been bugging me for a while, but I wondered if the move to daylight saving time would make any difference. Unfortunately not! TNS is still an hour ahead! It is clearly 18:11 UK time right now, but TNS website insists it is 19:11. Has caught me out several times and got me panicking that I'd lost an hour! Is there a reason for this time-anomoly, or am I just caught in a time-warp?

When I'm reading through the main forum menu the screen keeps jumping around. I presume this may be something to do with the alternating messages at the top of the screen. I don't usually have problems with messages like this but when they make the whole screen jump it is rather annoying.

Its not really a problem, but a spelling mistake instead.

In the Fact/Fiction section theres a question:
Island of Hawaii is made up of a volcano?

The answer:
It's True Hawaii is actually a string of islands each of which is a volvano.

Since I am a complete newbie at this, I hope i've found the right place to point it out [:)]

Thank you Variola. Purely coincidence though [:)] Needless to say, I am a Fan Of Genuineness, and like to see things correct, Scientific Facts or English Spelling [:)]  (And that comes from a person who actually makes loads of spelling mistakes himself).

Dearest TNS techy people...well Daveshorts!


Do you think we could fix whatever is wrong in the biography bit on users profiles? There is lots of random things put in with it, I spent ages fiddling about with mine but I still can't get it to read properly.

I'll use the Beaver's as an example

 I have a PhD in psychology from Cambridge, a BSc in computer science from Brunel &amp; an MBA from the Open University. My speciality is addiction/dependence. I am interested in all aspects of science especially particle physics and cosmology. Although I don't understand the maths involved in relativity &amp; QM I understand the concepts &amp; enjoy discussing them from a philosophical point of view.<br />Oh, I'm also totally off my trolley!"

I think it might be to do with punctuation, with mine I found I got different bits and pieces up according to which punctuation I changed. It's not a major thing but it makes it difficult to read about other folk.  [:)]
