Joe, can the software be tweaked somehow so that if a member has a PM waiting he/she automatically gets that little notification box flashing up on the screen, rather than them having to specifically tick the box requesting this.

I'm repeatedly getting replies to PM's where the member has not seen there is a message there for some days, so obviously quite a few people are not noticing that small "Notification" link at the top of the page. I know that I never look at that part of the screen myself.

Members: have a look at the Notification header: you may have a PM about which you are unaware.

Hi Julia, unfortunately this change cannot be made retrospectively, only for those registering at ASF from this point on. However, I have gone ahead and made this change for those who register at ASF from today onwards. It can, of course, be turned off in the "General Settings" section of their user settings should these members wish to receive notifications by another method.

For those ASF members who are already registered I can only suggest the following:

  • Please try and remember to check the "Notifications" section at the top of the page for PM (and other) notifications regularly.
  • If you a prone to missing your PM notifications, please consider changing your notification options by visiting the "Messaging & Notification" section of your "General Settings". You can then choose to receive notifications by email or by a pop-up notification box.

Joe for some reason the header menu (Log out..Settings...New Posts..FAQ...etc) is resolving up and down the left side of the pages in my browser (IE), instead of previously, and preferred, across the top. It just started doing it yesterday.

Is this still happening, or is anyone else experiencing a similar issue? Everything seems fine from my end. :confused:

Have spent some time looking for something like this but have been unable to find it.

If you track one down, let me know and I'll add it.

ASF is back up here Joe, just got the email from you. Such a massively influential site for us traders and investors, naked without it.
Cheers, L.

I cannot tell you how embarrassed and disappointed I am that the forums were down for most of today.

Normally I am monitoring the website most of the day but today I wasn't, and today of all days ASF goes down! Unbelievable. :banghead:

My sincere apologies to all for the inconvenience.

In almost seven years of operation this is the first time anything like this has happened... so hopefully it won't happen again for another seven years!

Good to see it all fixed again, Joe. I sent you an email in case it was ISP issues again - no need to reply to that email and nice to know it wasn't bigpond's fault again...:)

ASF had the 7 year itch and took a day to scratch it, leaving us all in the dark.

good its back!

I wonder what it got up to...
