    Every other thread I'm subscribed to, I can access no problem.

    Is it just teething troubles with the new forum software?
    Teething troubles, for sure. Everything under the hood looks like you should be able to post there just fine.

    I've cleared the system cache. You might try things like logging out and back in, trying in incognito mode, unsubscribing and resubscribing, etc. It's possible you've run into a vB5 bug, but so far I have not been able to reproduce it.

      Right you are. I'll give that a bash.

      Long before you and I were born, others beat these benches with their empty cups,
      To the night and its stars, to the here and now with who we are.

      Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
      And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

        Nope, no joy.

            Made a post, waited for the subscription email, the thread let me in again, and things are now back to normal.

              How to we add friends or contacts?

              Comment


                My guess is you go to their profile and subscribe to them

                Those have been my friends before are now my subscribers as I have noticed...so I guess that is how it works

                  I tried that and it worked. Thanks!

                    I tried to upload a picture but got this message:

                    20210316_185138.jpg
                    Upload failed due to your usergroup's upload quota. This file will require 713.3 KB but you only have 236.7 KB of 2.88 MB remaining.


                    I didn't know that I have a usergroup. Couldn't find any reference to that in my profile or settings.
                    Anyone know what this is all about? Maybe an upgrade bug?

                      "Usergroup" is just a way of keeping count of posts,privilege allowances etc.All forums have them.

                      What you're seeing in that red piece is referring to your "attachments" allowance.
                      When we post (or try to post ) pics using the forum as the host,we get X amount of megabytes permitted.The amount allowed rises as we go past milestones,so to speak.

                      Some ways to get past that:
                      Delete some really old attachments to make room for posting the new pics,or find a pic hosting site like imgr or imgbox.
                      Offsite free - to- use pic hosts can be a great way to post pics but there are size limits here,and you'd have to really look hard at their rules and any restrictions too.

                      I'll ask Darren if that limit is correct ,because 2.88 mb seems an odd sizing to me!
