  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.

  Dealers/trade and advertising
Posted by: GuillaumeB - 23-Jun-2015, 19:06 - Forum: Information, Rules & FAQ - No Replies

Just wanted to clarify some of our "unwritten" rules at Devialet Chat.  

Explicit dealer advertising is not permitted, however dealers are positively encouraged to participate in all discussion threads. By dealer advertising we mean blatant self-promotion including links to websites and price lists, and mentions of specific promotions. Contact details are not allowed. 

However, dealers are welcome to post in the "Events and Shows" section, in this section it may be appropriate to include links to websites and provide some contact details. 

Dealers are not allowed to post items for sale in the "For Sale" section. 

If in doubt as to what is acceptable (or not) please PM me.

Thanks  Smile

  Problem with Search
Posted by: Eddye - 18-Feb-2015, 19:37 - Forum: Information, Rules & FAQ - Replies (11)

Hi admins,

Is the Search engine working? I'm not getting any results, while I'm almost sure I should be getting some.

Hi guys,

Can I encourage those that haven't yet done so to upload an avatar?


Once again this isn't compulsory or anything.  Tongue
