Hi all,when I registered as alisenjafi with my other e mail I couldn't get an activation #. Kept getting error, even though it says I am registered. Not sure if it has to do with mac OS X, Safari or some hidden preference. Anyway I used my UK e mail and another computer. Which I tried to get my original reg on and also got error. So I am registered twice. What can I do to get an activation for alisenjafi, even though I am registered as that as well, and delete this one?

I also tried finding help, to sort this out but no luck. I don't use this e mail much , ecxept to talk with Brit and Irish soldiers, which being in America doesn't get used much anymore.
Cheers

No idea.   I wish i could help.  Try using internet explorer and requesting your password and checking (with internet explorer) your email account.  Seems like some kind of odd browser issue if you aren't using regular 'explorer'.

what is wrong with the blasted post. Sometimes when I try to post the damn thing locks up then comes up with a lame message that some other person posted while I was doing my hunt and peck post. So who cares, and sometimes the post I labored over is lost. I'm tired of retyping so screw it, if the system dumps my post then that's karma for you!

BB

it's supposed to be a feature I presume.   I only see it when I use the back button on my browser (it will tell me somebody else posted... which is actually the post i just posted)

It's more of a notice type message.... just rehit the {post} button and it will post your topic as normal.   It's an extra step.  Let me know if this works for you as I haven't actually experienced this directly. 

For our purposes here, I think that feature should be disabled.  It's good for high volume websites, but this as a lower volume website, i don't see the need.

umm...can someone explain slowly how to insert a picture into a post? one from my pictures folder, rather than a web-site. I have read the instructions several times, but it's still making no more sense than an ikea wardrobe...

thanks
kate

from your computer, you can only attach photos,...  like this... that's the poz thing that appears at the bottom of this thread above my signature.

to do that... you post here.. and then you must go to "ADDITIONAL OPTIONS' beneath where you actually type.  It's not a button that you click on above like the others.

Once you click on that, you will see a section called "attach' with a blank bar and a button that will let you search your computer for the picture you want to attach... then save and voila!

Please let me know if this answered your question or didn't help at all

Go into your profile and click on the link for Look and Layout Preferences

Look down the list with check boxes. One of them says Don't warn on new replies made while posting. Check that box and hit the Change Profile button. That should take care of this problems for you.

Personally, I like being notified, especially when answering questions in the Am I Infected? forum.

David, you have a couple options for the moment to include some personal information.


Go to your profile and click on the link for FORUM PROFILE INFORMATION.

Beneath where you enter your avatar picture is a section called PERSONAL TEXT.  It will allow you to enter a short phrase under your picture (mine says "pass the salt!  This baby needs flavor'

You can also enter information in your signature line that allows a bit more space.

It's not the same as having a section to write a book about yourself :) , but does allow you some personalization options.

"Unknown Action"?

What does that mean?  When I click on "Who's on" and it shows where everyone is and what they are doing I sometimes see that listed (for individuals other than Moderators).

Does it mean the member doesn't know what they are doing?   :P

Does it mean there's some way for any of us to do stuff and not have it revealed?  (If so I want to know how to do that!   ;D )

I am very new here and I cannot figure out how to set up my profile! I have tried 5x's ??? I'm not even sure this is the right way to post! Anyway, maybe I'll get that part figured out soon. My actual name is Kelly. I live in Florida and have been positive since 1990. I am on a few meds and my VL is undetectable. My CD4 count is above 500, something like 547 I'm happy to meet other people going through this. So far I have been very alone with it, except for my family who know I am poz, but are neg. themselves.

Hi folks,

I have tried 3 times tonight to update my profile with photo and personal info.  It isn't working and I get a message that "An error has occurred" or something like that.  I check help and there is nothing there that helped for this.  Any ideas?

is your picture small enough?   in size and KB?   I think it has to be under 100kb for the entire picture and should be sized about 100x100.

I'm not sure of the exact limits here, but likely, the picture you are trying to use is too big in memory size.   try shrinking it down and then reuploading

Dear Bailey,
I have never considered myself a technophobe, but am apparently most mystified as how to make my text roll, glow, and marquee.
I have still, to be able to put your fabulous insert pic instructions for my blogging to informed confirmation.

  .................. as an aside, I will gently inform you that my memory seems to be that of a gnat lately (to say the least).
I was quite proud of being able to write my blog on a word document, and "cut & paste"it to my blog space.
I patted myself on the back for two weeks behind that epiphany.
      It is entirely possible that I did something wrong, but I cannot successfully master the same technique here.
I can't grasp the whole "code" thingy.

How does the pm count work?

As far as I can tell the number refers only to messages accumulated in your "in box" and isn't affected by the number of messages sent. 

Is that correct?

Is there a limit?

I hit 50 several times and rushed to start deleteing stuff, only to realize I was still getting messages and I wasn't getting the warning about my box being full.  The count never went above 50 but I still got messages.

So how does it work?  Do we need to keep both our "received" and "sent" boxes cleaned out?  Can we accumulate only a certain number in either?  Is it only relating to messages "received"?

I don't know Rocky. I've got 155 in mine at the minute and I couldn't tell you if that is inbox only or not. I'll be increasing my outbox in a few moments as well... I've got loads of people I need to get back to as I've been lazy over the weekend. (sorry!)

I had unlimited PM storage capacity in the old forum (one of the few perks of being a moderator), but I don't know if my storage capacity is any different from anyone elses here in the new forum.

So, in short... dunno! :D

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful dear.

To Peter

I'm still having problems when I log in, it opens with that darn attachment picture of the Bourbon Hotel!  This despite the fact I have a brand new computer!

To stop that from happening, I delete all cookies and temporary files and everything is fine.  UNTIL, I go into the information thread about AMG 06 and do some edit, then the problem reappears.

Just wanted you to know.

Hello,

I have no problem increasing the size of the font, through internet explorers "VIEW, and then TEXT size button. I can read the forums quite well.

However, when I am in  the "NEWS" section of the site, I can not increase the size of the font. Am I doing something wrong, or, is it just not capable of increasing the font size in the "news" section ??



It's tough to read it....

Ok, so I'm really fucking lame, and apparently none too bright either. All I want to do is add a photo to my profile, but when I try to upload it from my computer, after I hit the change button all that happens is the screen goes blank, then my mind does too. Am I really this bad, or is there some secret squirrel way or perhaps a Voodoo dance that I need to complete in order to do this? Some help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Kiddies

I had the same problem.  You need to resize your photo to "teeny-tiny" size...less than 100 kb or so.  Then it will work.  I had trouble finding a way to resize my photos that small, so ended up posting an old photo rather than the one I would have preferred.  It may be a feature of the system, but it does feel like a bug.

any photo editing software should be able to do a basic resize/crop.

I believe the llimit is still 100kb for the file size, but I don't think there are dimensional limits (except if it's bigger than 100x100, you'll have that damn scroll bar)

If you need help resizing the photo, just make a post here and 'attach' the photo to you post.  I or somebody else can edit it in a jiffy for you, then you can copy the edited image and upload that as your avatar.

DingoBoi. I just spent almost an hour trying to post the picture so you could downsize it to the proper size but this fucking computer won't even let me do that, it says that the size limit is 500kb, and refuses to send it through. Any other ideas or should I just bag the fucking thing? I have limited patience for computers, and every time I try do do something like this it ends in catastrophe. You ever wonder why laptops aren't round? So that way you're not tempted to throw the goddamn thing like a Frisbee...

dont' spank the computer

try this link here http://www.resizeimage.4u2ges.com/index.asp

it's just one of many online image resizers.  If this one doesn't work for you just try googling 'online image resize' 

The max size of a single attachment can't be more than 500k.   You can post up to 4 pics in a single post but the combined total can't exceed 500k.

Try one of these services and see if it works.

If you use the one i recommended try reducing to 10%. ... you may need to adjust of course since i don't knwo the physical size of the picture you are trying to post... but anything that gets it under the 500k limit will let you post it here.

and then we can re-edit it for you

:)

good luck

i see all of your post without any scrollbar or anything like that... can you not see the same thing i've posted as your quote?  I want to help, but i'm still not understanding the problem of what you are seeing versus what the rest of us see.  I actually see four lines of text from your paragraph on my full screen monitor.   Please tell me what you are seeing differently and what parts of your post i quoted are 'missing' from you view.

Do you actually see your post as I've quoted it or not?

Dingo,

Is there a way you can ignore an entire thread without ignoring the people that have posted on that thread?

I have seen threads that I would love to ignore where they would simply just go away istead of apperaring at the top of my page every time I log on.

cjc.. i am at a loss.. i have no idea.. perhaps messaging the site owners/mods would help in this matter.   What I can tell you is that your responses post fine even if more than one line.

Maybe i'm just not understanding the problem /sigh

teresa, the only way I can figure to ignore an entire thread is to turn off your computer.   Maybe hit it with a stick too. :P 

Actually, that would be a nice feature to ignore a thread you have no interest in so it's gone forever.  There are lots of threads i'd like to ignore that just don't connect with me... and seeing them again and again, still doesn't make me want to respond.

Mods?

  ATTACH A PICTURE FILE?
« on: July 20, 2006, 03:38:24 PM »   

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Does anyone know how to explain just how to attach my pictures that I usually put right on my post? Because I guess it's hard for those with dial up to get the posts open.
I'm sure it's best if I could just attach the picture. Right?
Peace,
Kelly

Hi Ryeguy,
I change mine by clicking on the "profile" button at the top of the screen.
Then there is a thing that says "modify profile".
You look right under there and there is "edit forum information.
Click on that and on that screen there is a place to choose which pic you want.
Just click on "browse", find the one you want and click on it.
Then go to the bottom and click "change profile"
That should do it.
I hope those directions weren't too discombobulated.

Peace,
Kelly

Thankyou much Kelly, I have done just what you said and also tried this myself but for some reason which illogical to me is. The system always loads my old pic up again, I have clicked on 5 different pics when browsing. :-(

I'll try again thanxx

lwood,

don't use the 'buttonize' feature there, it will only generate the 'script' which can't be posted here.

once you have your button designed, just copy it to your computer and upload it somewhere on the web, then link to that with the [img] tags

couldnt I just delete the </ Script parts of the code ??  anyway, Ill just do the copy Paste thing it seems alot easier.

Also as I was VERY tediously Typing out some of this Code I realized that its just a link, with an IMG inserted instead of text like' Click Here '  so could I insert a very small photo instead of a Button???

yup... the 'button' is just a picture itself... doesn't matter what the size is.. heck, you could make any picture a clickable link

This is the code i use in my signature

Code: [Select]
[center][url=http://blogs.poz.com/bailey/]
[img]http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/8959/newestblog1bl1.gif[/img]
[/url][/center]

just replace the url with whatever you want to link the image to and image part with the link to your picture/button

ya, and here Ive been getting all flustered with buttons, actually the buttons are simple, its getting an offsite host to recognize them thats the prob, Photobucket doesnt recognize them, and I'll use Imageshack as a last resort... just what I need ANOTHER account.... Ill resize a pic to say 25 lpi and see if it will fit in the sig line. ..Opens beer...


Followup:   YAY it Worked !!!!  Now everybody will want one... Ill link it to the blog later, For Now I have to Find A pic Of me that looks Good Really Small.....or maybe just the Title Template from my blog....

i haven't tested this, but if you 'attach' a picture file to a thread, then you should be able to link to THAT uploaded picture in this forum.. essentially making the aidsmeds forum the host of the picture like imageshack

Wouldnt it link to the Whole page? Aids Meds Headers, page layout  and all?
The pic link works fine, if only there were something interisting to read in my Blog....
Shouldn't this work with the Profile pic too ??  it would be sweet.

try testing it.   I don't think it will work with the profile avatar because it should only accept the http:// address of the picture...but won't accept the html coding required to do the linking.

if you 'attach' a file to a thread then view the attached file, then right click and select properties, you should see the path that is the link to the picture as now hosted here.   It should just be the picture.

Why is there not a forum for HIV - (+ welcome) people to discuss HIV issues.  The "Am I infected" forum is set up as a question/answer forum from experts which is second to none without a doubt and that's how it should be.  Sometimes however,  it helps to talk about issues with someone who is going through what you are.  At times, I feel like there is a  "locals only" issue that presents itself from time to time (not by everyone but by some.) I wouldn't want to invade anyones forums but why does "anyone" have to be locked out when it comes HIV discussion.  Since most of the US population doesn't think twice about HIV testing you would think that those who do would have a place on AIDSMEDS.COM.

BTW: I'm not saying that - people should be allowed in any of the current forums designated for + people.

Scared,

We used to allow more of that sort of exchange in the Am I forum. It didn't work. All it did was enable people to escalate each other's fears. That forum has evolved into the fairly strict format it now has for good reasons - reasons that have come to be known through time and experience.

You do. It's called the Am I Infected forum.

Aidsmeds was originally created by Peter Staley as a place for people living with hiv could come to get information and support. He added the Am I forum (then called Fears) only after people questioning their hiv status kept asking questions. This website always has been and remains a place primarily for hiv positive people and their loved ones.
