Great! I like removing the spam. I really hate that stuff.
I think you'll be a great addition to the board patrol.
I'll tone the catty down, but sometimes I just can't help myself :mrgreen:.

You seem to be easy-going. I like that too :thumbup:.
Cooksie you are fast. Mark has been helping me with a permissions issue and some behind the scenes XF stuff. I just promoted him yesterday and announced it to the other Mods ..and today I was going to make the announcement here ...but you picked up on the 'staff' label and I got busy on the tractor forum ...so you beat me. LOL

Things will stay the same as far as moderating. Be as catty as you like. No problem here. We have a great group here ...I can't remember the last time we had to mod anyone here, other than to ban spammers and remove their trash.

Please welcome Mark aka Ironman to our team. He has helped me before and now he'll be an official Super Moderator aka staff member.

It's not showing up anywhere.
Medtran I do not see that post. I just posted in staff area asking if someone else had approved it. I also checked all your permissions and thought you were fixed so none of your posts would go to the 'need approval' area. Please feel free to try to post in seriously speaking forum again and if it turns out to be a double post we will fix it for you. My apologies for it needing approval. i thought we had all those permissions fixed.

I see a new 'Best Wishes' thread. Can you please copy the error message page with a screen saver? If on Windows the smipping tool will let you save it. If on a mobile device just snap an image of the page. I'm not seeing anything in the logs to lead me as to how to help what you are seeing.

note: I have a dr appointment in Cols today so I will be on the road much of the day. I will try to get back to you early evening on this.

That gets me what I need. I do not understand how you could post in the Seriously Speaking forum and then get this message though. I'm confused like you are but will do my best to get to the bottom of it. ....If you were trying to view something else when you got this error please tell me what you were trying to view. Thanks.

Tell me for sure what you were trying to view. What did you click on just before the error message? Can you reproduce the error? Does it do it every time you click on it (it should).
I've looked high and low and cannot find a reason for how you generated that error. But these permissions are very persnickity. Way down in the trenches I have something wrong but so far I am not finding it. Not your fault . I apologize for the issue and will get to the bottom of it but it might take a bit of time. Thanks for understanding.

It happens every time I try to look at my best wishes posts. Doesn't matter whether I look at it first or after looking at other posts.

Of the 5 subforums in the off topic forum, the back porch is in yellow and i can look at posts in it. the others are a greyed out/very light blue color and I get the same oops message if I try to look at posts in them.

I modified permissions. Please let me know if it made any difference for you. Thx

Sorry, but no.
Thanks .... Please try again now. I made another change. I can only change one item at a time so we might be doing this a few times but I will get you there I promise.

I'm having trouble with pictures. I take them with my phone or tablet, then when I try to post them here, somethimes they say they're too big. I'm not sure what to do about it. Lately, they've all said that, so I haven't posted anything.

I resize my pictures (that I take with my phone or digital camera) down to 650 pixels using Paint. Windows has a basic version of Paint that you can use. I use Paint Shop Pro. Right-click your picture and choose Edit. Resize from there and Save As.
