      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

      UPDATE on Upgrade   02/07/2017

      We were somewhat delayed on getting the upgrade done, but it looks like it will now be done in the next few days or possibly even later today.   There is one change coming with the new upgrade that may affect people when they log in. There will no longer be separate Usernames and Display Names. Your Display Name will now be the only name you have for the forum and, if you used your Username to log in, you will now need to use your Display Name. It is likely that everyone who visits after the upgrade will need to log in again, so please keep this in mind.   Update again - Feb 7 - We have completed the main part of the upgrade and we are working to tweak settings for the site.  It will probably take us a while, but we will eventually settle down to the way we want it.  In the meanwhile, your posts should be secure, but the look of the forum and some functions may change over time.

Was starting the board over the only solution

4 posts in this topic

I dont make a habit of questioning the experts, but wasnt there some other smoother way of fixing the board besides starting from scratch. Now everything is totally confusing. Having 2 boards to have to go back and forth to. Plus, now noone is responding to anything (relatively).

 

I had a thread in the old forum about having a second computer to test virus and stuff. I was right in the middle of it. Now I am not sure if I should start the thread again, or hope the others in Boot Camp will still reply.

 

I am really not sure what to say. I dont want to piss anyone off, but it seems to me everyone will just go elsewhere now. I am used to the people at this board and thought it was the best one going.

 

I guess I am just venting, because this seems like such a huge change. Should have just waited until a DoS attack. Would the end result not have been the same? What has happened here is the same thing that would have happened had there been another DoS.

 

I think you have DoS'ed yourselves here. Seems noone knows where to go or what to do.

 

How long before this happens again to the new forum? :angry:

Should I start anew at TC, should I stay here. I know this forum is not mine, but I have donated, and have many others, so it seems there should have been some kind of discussion about this change so that others would have had a chance to maybe make suggestions on what to do. I do not suggest that I had any good ideas, because I didnt, but it seems that Mike, and probably a few others in the experts faction, felt it important enough to just do the change without saying anything to the people who have helped make this board one of the best on the net.

 

Sorry for my candor. I feel abit guilty about this, but I had to say what was on my mind.

 

My post in Boot Camp was moved, and I really wanted it there at Boot Camp, because Iknow there are people there who have Norton Ghost. I guess I'll just start my original thread over again in the new forums and go from there. Then it will be on topic as it should be if posted in context.

 

Thanks

boney

The old board was not usable and had to be moved. The database could not be moved with it so we decided to go ahead and start fresh.

 

Lose that attitude. People with attitudes like that get themselves banned.
