With the new software and everything, there is a slight learning curve and issues the forums. Most of them are easily rectified. A few I am not sure why they are happening, but they seem to be working themselves out.
So - first of all, if you have a problem, email me. I ususally will fix it within 12 hours or so. Generally much sooner.
Now - the problem I have is people send me email like "Why was my IP banned?" or "Why cant I post". Usually this comes email comes from some one like "Ted Konizsky firstname.lastname@example.org"
OK - well while I am a great webmaster, and a wonderfull paintball player, my pshycic abilities are lacking. Im afraid I cant tell you what Ted's user name is. Or if they use an account labled "Metallica Fan" I am really in trouble.
Basically guys I want to help. But I need YOU to help me. I need some very BASIC information.
1) your username
2) your ISP (if it is a ban issue) and your IP addess if known
3)if you get any error messages I need you to cut and paste them.
Now - there are TWO things that I know need to be done in order for you to post.
1) you need to have a valid email account. If you dont, then you cant post. If you change your email, it will email you a new password to that email account. So - make sure that account is valid - make sure you havent been sent a new email password.
2) for what ever reason - some times there is some confusion with the software. People who posted fine awhile ago suddenly cant post. I think it has to do with a browser cach issure. Shut down ALL your browsers, and then re-enter and log into the site.
So - if you have problems - make sure you try those two things first. If that doesnt work - then email me - but PLEASE email me the information I MUST have to help you.
