Error reports

onewileyz, usually if you can copy and paste the entire 500 error into the error report, it helps the administrators track down the problem. Try to report which browser you are using too, and the type (.jpg or whatever), dimensions, and size of the file.

Way to tag Advertisements we run accross on site

I often want to check out the advertisers I run across while surfing your site, but I hate to break off my stream of thought and then I forget where I saw the advertisement I was interested in. Can you set up a way to click on an advertisement and link it to my Account so I can gather them in one place to look at? Just a thought....

New Word Verification Works

There is a new word verification and it worked.  I am so grateful.  Sorry I was frustrated.  Thank you so much for fixing that.

I have an avatar but can not find where to enter that into the site.  I do not have a facebook etc or other site.  I suppose some other people are getting avatars from those sites.  I need to enter an avatar onto this site.  I hope it allows for automatic sizing.  That can be a pain when the picture is slightly larger. 

God Bless Turd Furguson.  Great Video.  I watched every minute.  Love your hat.

Google maps for all members

Noticed that most members have put cities / states / countries in.  Is there an easy way to show all registered members locations on one map?  See if there are local communities that can form for local issues.  Also cold beer?

TIA

Bug Report: YouTube embedded video

Embedding is inconsistent. For example, the videos on these pages give me "an error occurred please try again later," and then it immediately replaces the current page with the YouTube page for the video. However I can watch the video I posted later in the first thread just fine.

https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/forum/very-happy-we-have-new-site/90

https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/forum/most-important-video-youll-ever-see/97

Using: Safari 5.0.5 on OS X (10.6.7), but duplicated in Firefox 4.

I'm too lazy to debug this to source the error, but maybe I will later. At a minimum I think error handling should pop a new window and not replace the current page.

Huzzah!  Finally got in.

Huzzah!  Finally got in.  Glad they took my suggestion and installed reCAPTCHA.  This is an excellent service, because it not only weeds out bots, it also helps in the digitization of books.

My suggestion (no need to implement immediately) would be to have different color palliates or templates that users can choose.  The current one is very bright and a bit tough on my eyes.  Probably more so on the older members.

Thanks for the great site, guys!

Security on account creation

I noticed that the login screen does not support HTTPS. It might be good to add the feature.

Johnny Newcome

Who is this guy? And why does his name appear under every avatar on every post? Indicator for newbie poster? If so, change to "Johnny Comelately"........a little Eagles tribute. Or, is it some sort of veiled Nuke threat against the EE? (-;

Okay......found the answer in Turdisms!
