    Granted, i've gotten a few rep points for my location, but mostly because people think it's humorous.

    Has anyone had problems posting lately, or is it just me? For the past few weeks I have been unable to start a new thread. I continually receive an error message informing me that my post is too short and telling me to lengthen it to at least 1 characters. I recently found that by switching my editor mode I was able to post, but that doesn't correct the problem. Am I the only one?

    Why oh why can't I use my Buddy or Ignore lists? I tried to add someone and it a) spelt the name in lower case when it has Caps and b) wouldn't let me view the list of GW members so I could double check the spelling.

    Well, i just tried adding names to my buddy list and it seems to work. (The names are in the list, but what the buddy list does i haven't a clue. As for not being able to see the member list, that's a feature that has been disabled by the Admins. Probably because there's 12,000+ members, and loading the data file for the list would likely crash certain browsers (likely the same issue that comes up with people using Internet Explorer to "View Forum Leaders").

    One way to see a limited memberlist (the users currently on the forum now) is to Right Click on Forum link and select "Open in New Window." (Internet Explorer). Then click on "Currently Active Users" near the bottom of the page. The list that comes up shows you all the currently active users, but not the ENTIRE memberlist. If you want the entire memberlist, grab a copy of Firefox and hit the "View Forum Leaders" link, right above the "Currently Active Users" link. Don't use Internet Explorer to "View Forum Leaders." You'll freeze Explorer when you do.

    Long winded answer that helps you out, hopefully.

    On the main forum page people on your buddy list have a + next to them to make them easier to notice

    The quickest way to get to a persons profile is to enter their name in the advanced search - http://forum.gateworld.net/search.php

    If you untick 'exact name' you can search by part of a name i.e. Techno

    When the search is done it will say posts done by TechnoWraith click on the name and their profile will come up click add to buddy list

    Um that is what is not working! It will not add anyone to the ignore list. I don't want to make a buddy I want to ignore one. I do know how to do all the other things this is the first time I have needed to add someone to the ignore list and it isn't working. I post the correct name in the space provide and submit it and it comes back member does not exist (or such and such is not a member) and the name is then presented in all lowercase.

    It looks like you'll have to ignore them via their profile.
    Do an advanced search by their user name and tick to show results as posts, you should then be able to click on their profile (next to the "posted by") and ignore them from there.

    did you remember to hit the "Update Ignore List" button when you were done adding names? As an experiment, i added you to my ignore list, but forgot to hit the "Update Ignore List" button, so it didn't work the first time around. It worked after i hit the "Update Ignore List" button. I know it sounds like i'm asking a dumb quesion, but a perfectly valid one in the end.

    p.s. I did remove you from my ignore when i was done, however.

    31 on friends, 32 on ignore. But I know that at least a few of those on ignore are dead sock puppets. I'm just not willing to remove them.

    I have an extremely low tolerance for BS. I also tend to make a lot of enemies who will go out of their way to harrass and antagonize me. Hence the large list.

    What exactly does the buddy list do anyway? I know the ignore list blocks out posts.

    Well I know it adds a "+" to the end of each person on your buddy list (found on the bottom of the Forum main page)
