That was a spambot. I banned the account. It posted 14 messages all in a short time.

I'm not sure where else to ask this:

When I visit the board, I keep getting a pop-up saying I have a new message, and would I like to view it now.  I've viewed it dozens of times by now and can't get rid of the pop-up.  Anyone able to help?  It has been days now since I got the original message.

Not quite the same, but for years, the footer showing total messages and new messages said I had 2 new messages as its baseline. If I got a new message, it would show 3, and so on upward, but instead of 0 it was always 2. Somewhere along the line, that went away and it's now accurate. No idea what happened. Maybe it's a similar phenomenon.

Imagine a scenario where other user insults or in some other way writes something to a certain person to which this person wants to respond, but he doesn't want to derail the original conversation with personal off topic talk. He tries to send personal message to this other person, but he has blocked your messages. Is there any other possible way to respond personally to this other person's insults? It's a really bugging situation.

Dear moderators.
I've run into this strange problem involving one Word, which apparently has been misused in a slandering way by some board members and Thus deemed inappropriate - and therefore will be automatically exchanged into another term when used!
The R-Word ending with 'etard' appears in a perfect palindromic limerick made by Will Thomas and is quoted by me several times in my wordgame threads.
But the auto-censor's alternate term completely ruins the Whole  limerick since it IS also a palindrome (where btw this R-Word has a total different meaning like 'holding back' or something).

So I only ask: Can the R-Word pass in this case  and the auto-censor be de-activated within the palindrome-threads or are there other options???

I'm obviously being stupid but my PM's have all disappeared. As in, I can't access my mailbox in any way at all! Where is it?!

Thanks in advance :-)

Hi moderators,
I'm guessing this is covered somewhere, but I've been unable to find it: how can I insert an image in a post? I see the "Insert Image" button, but what do I put between the tags?

Hey, I'm not a mod but can help you here. It's a bit of a faff but you first need to upload the image to a file host site (free and simple)
http://postimage.org/ Is a simple and easy one. That will give you a URL designed for forums, you can choose your size etc and the tags are often included.

Hope this helps.

Between the tags you put the web address (beginning with http:// and commonly ending with .jpg) of an image that already exists on the web. To get that address (known as the URL), you can right-click (or whatever is equivalent on your device) on an image on a web page and select "Copy image address" (or something similar saying "location" or "URL" instead of address), and then paste that address between the [img] and [/img] tags.

A way to figure out stuff like this is to click the quote button in a post with a posted image (such as this), and look at the code of that post.

Pretty sure I've violated the new rules a couple of times.  Embarrassed
Is it retroactive or starting today?

Updated rule #1 - " If after contacting them [the mods] you are not satisfied, you then should contact the board owner."

Small problem: doesn't work, because Chuckie doesn't respond. Ever. I've contacted him several times over the last two, three years regarding various issues I've had with the forum, and not received a single reply. Not. One.

Somehow wilsonart1's 'Dennis location' thread ended up on the BW Q&A board.  Undecided
