When you press "mark this forum read" you wind up in the same section as before. 
Wouldn't it be handier to go up one level as you prolly wanna go to another section?

  Devialetchat is blocked by network administrator
Posted by: hk6230 - 19-May-2016, 01:02 - Forum: Information, Rules & FAQ - Replies (12)

This morning, when trying to access this site, my browser pop up with a Dell logo and stating the site has been blocked by network administrator. I wonder it is blocked by the Chinese famed "Great Wall firewall" or just a hitch on the service provider.

I have to use VPN to access the site now.

  How is the forum funded?
Posted by: thumb5 - 28-Apr-2016, 21:31 - Forum: Information, Rules & FAQ - Replies (77)

The on-going debacle at the 'wam reminds me of something I've been meaning to ask for a while, which is:

It must cost something to host and run the forum, and I don't see any advertisements or other means by which it raises income.  So I assume it's the personal generosity of Guillaume and/or Rufus and/or Martyn that funds it.

If that's the case, firstly: thank you, and secondly: is there a way that members can make a contribution towards the running costs?  I for one would be very pleased to do so.

(I don't want to pry unduly so if this isn't an appropriate topic for discussion, sorry for the noise and please feel free to nuke this post!)

  Forum Maintenance - Monday 11th April 0900 GMT
Posted by: Martyn - 06-Apr-2016, 18:59 - Forum: Information, Rules & FAQ - Replies (3)


On Monday 11th April 0900 we are moving the forum over to a new server including the database.

We are hoping this is all done and dusted within 15 minutes but there could be potentially longer downtime.

If this is the case we'll be updating our twitter account twitter.com/devialetchat

Moving to a new server will enable us to scale more effectively.

Any questions let me know.

  Private Message Quota Reached
Posted by: Dr Tone - 03-Apr-2016, 14:33 - Forum: Information, Rules & FAQ - Replies (3)

I didn't think it was appropriate for everyone to create a new thread when a fellow member has reached their private message quota so  let's all page our fellow members using this thread.

I'll start, @Confused, you have some house cleaning to do, I can't reply to you right now.

  The Great Devialet Chat Census!
Posted by: GuillaumeB - 02-Apr-2016, 13:39 - Forum: Information, Rules & FAQ - Replies (2)

Hi guys,

I am planning to carry out a survey of Devialet Chat members, this will be an email poll which will point to Survey Monkey. The idea is to compile a database of who owns what and make this available as a searchable resource on the Devialet Chat homepage. Naturally only usernames and equipment owned will be published with no disclosure of personal details in order to protect the anonymity of all members. Those that don't want to participate will have the option to opt out.

The first stage is obviously to collect the data so expect to receive an email from Devialet Chat soon!

  Forum email notification service down?
Posted by: Antoine - 13-Dec-2015, 14:49 - Forum: Information, Rules & FAQ - Replies (7)

Hi admin(s),

Yesterday I noticed I'm not receiving email notifications from the forum after receiving a PM. Today I checked my configured email address here, but it's the right one. I've tried to re-register it but never received the confirmation email. The emails are also not in one of my spam folders. Smile

Could it be the email service of the forum is down or is it perhaps disabled?

Thank you in advance!

Best regards,

  Too Many Multiple Quotes
Posted by: bentrider - 17-Sep-2015, 18:23 - Forum: Information, Rules & FAQ - Replies (5)

I have difficulty enjoying this forum because too many posts contain multiple quotes.  I have to wade through endless repetition to get to a new, one sentence post. 

Suggestions for improvement:

1. Just say what you mean and forget about repeating the entire thread as a quote in your post. Angry

2. Can the format be changed so quotes show up as darker or a different color or otherwise clearly distinct from the new information?  I find everything looks so much alike I have to really look hard to find the added information.
