I actually had the database thing once this morning trying to get on tech support, then it cleared up. I had it a bunch last couple days. The problem I always have is I automatically think it's on my end. With PC stuff I always consider myself the weakest link.

One last thing

This is the place where the members of dog forums chat about thier dogs or dogs in general.
Would somebody go in there and change the spelling of "thier to their" It just irks me.

It was only "off" for a very short time yesterday early morning for me..........due to some minor programing problem. Doesn't seem to be a problem today so far.

I love my computer....it tells me when I spell something wrong! It underlines it. I have caught myself spelling that same exact word incorrectly a couple of times and I was a champion speller in school many many moons ago! Lol!

So I know that apparently other people have been complaining about auto merge double post, but I hate that its gone. Either there are five posts in a row from the same person, or I miss edits since I don't get an email telling me that someone make a new post.

Lol, I wonder who was doing the considerable whining, now that there's also considerable whining about the new way! Personally, I would have changed it to about an hour, not 2 minutes. Maybe even 10 minutes. . .long enough that quick adjustments would be double-merged. But oh well. I don't really care one way or the other. Unless admin starts whining about the extra bandwidth being used and asking us not to double-post. Then I'd mind :p.

I don't think it's coming back. There was considerable whining about the automerge function, so the new admins adjusted it.
How about a toggle in your profile?

If it's checked, the forum automerges, if it isn't, the forum won't.

That way everyone can be happy.

I think you're asking us to redesign the vBulleton software.

Even if that could be done, I can guarantee that not everyone will be happy.

Did not want to start a thread for just a dumb question, the threads with the 5 gold/yellow stars/asterisks, what do the asterisks represent. Some threads have them others not.

It's threads KBLover has replied to.



When you're in a thread, on the top right of the first post there's a bar of options. One of the drop down options is "Rate This Thread." And you can, well, rate that thread, with a number of stars (5 being the best, 1 being the worst). Most people don't bother with this, which is why most threads don't have them. For some reason, whenever KBLover posts in a thread, it automatically gets rated 5 stars.

Well now I understand it's "The Wally" that's in charge of the 5 star stuff.
