Make sure you set your browser to allow pop-ups from "comments.theotaku.com". Though, most pop-up blockers wouldn't block the pop-up because it is actually clicked by the user.
Anyways, regarding the "lag" issue, it's something we're aware of and trying to fix. It is a result of our new server and delay issues between the two Database servers. But hey, I'm sure its better than having a reallllllly slow site :cool:.
[quote name='Generic NPC #3']Maybe it would be possible to allow the member to delete their own thread within a certain amount of time... say five or ten minutes or less. That way they can't just randomly delete a thread with 40 replies to it. I don't know if that is possible or not.[/quote]
It is not currently possible, nor was I able to find a current modification that does what was suggested.
I think it would be a good idea to let the thread starter delete their topic within [I]x[\I] minutes of creation. If it is something James would want, I would be willing to invest time in to making it.
Just wanted to drop in here and let everyone know of a major bug fix today.
Those who had "Ghost PMs" in which you had an unread private message, but was no where to be found... or you had a read private message that could not be found... I have fixed this issue. You'll be able to see these hidden PMs now, and the Author of them will be denoted as "Guest".
This problem existed because when a user deletes their account, their private messages remain in the database. I should have a fix for that soon enough as well, but I wanted to get the "Ghost PM" thing fixed so that I could stop manually fixing it.
Enjoy. Let me know if you see any problems arise as a result of this.
Assuming you are talking about theOtaku commen'ts form, we have changed it so that you must have at least 50 characters or more in your comment. This is stated directly next to the comment box "50 Character Minimum".
This is an attempt to stop one word comments or otherwise spammy comments as well.
[QUOTE=Baron Samedi][size=1]I've been logged out and cannot log back in. When I try to retrieve password it says that my username is jblessing, and gives me a password that doesn't work on my name or Justin's. Bit annoying =\
As a side note, I got logged off of [url="http://www.dead-seraphim.net/forum"]Alan's forums[/url] too, but logged back on there.[/size][/QUOTE]
The 'jblessing' portion has been fixed. Try to get a new password again (remember you have to click the link in the e-mail, or copy/paste, and THEN you'll get an e-mail w/ the new pass).
