Smudge Pot told me he's not

Smudge Pot told me he's not able to log in anymore. I don't know if its a problem with the DP, or password, or what. Anyway, I guess that's why he's not been on lately.

Oh that is great news!

Ok, well not the part about him not logging in, that is sad, but I have wondered where he has been and am glad he is ok and that it is just technical difficulties. However without more info on what is happening I can't help much and even then I probably won't be able to help much because I'm not really tech advanced and I don't know why the dailypaul does the things it does sometimes.

If you are able to talk to him again soon, would you mind having him send an email here with more information on what is happening when he tries to login?

thankyou@dailypaul.com

Thanks Stonewall.

Question for Jon....

This lockheed martin ad

is seriously pissing me off. It pops up and starts playing over and over, even when I am on a different tab! What up with that?

Disgusting ads

I don't want to see crap about bisexual celebrities, etc. I don't want to have to use a plugin to get rid of them. I tried that before. Then you guys change the names of the HTML elements, and it all becomes useless and I'd have to do it all over again. I've made comments about this multiple times and seem to have gotten zero responses. It's bad enough to see ads, but lewd ones, WTF? I'm fine with seeing ones that are actual sponsors or real, useful products, like Tangy Tangerine.

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.

Are Rev Content and Trending on the Web

new DP features? Can I get rid of them? Or is there something at my end that is allowing the disgusting topics and pictures to show up when I visit the DP? It almost makes me not want to visit. Thanks for any insight you can provide!

Why did my post get censored?

Hey not sure why my post got censored:

Are the Rothschilds All Inbred? VOTE on this Picture!

Just wondering if I can get a reason. It's all in good fun - it wasn't inflammatory as far as I'm aware. Just poking fun at TPTB and having a laugh. Some people might disagree with it but when did disagreements become justification for censorship?

bigmikedude's picture

It was

just kind of beneath DP standards Oracle. Rothschilds or not, we just don't care to be the site known for posting someone's picture and inferring they might be inbred.

I know none of us would be happy to find ourselves the focus of a post like that on Salon or some other place.

And it leaves the potential for inadvertently opening Michael's door to having to deal with a slander suit back here behind the scenes while everyone else posts away oblivious to any issues it might cause him at DP.

Hi Nonna

I see the following update on it. I checked the very original version, and it didn't have this. Then I checked the revised version from today and this is all that seems to have changed. Did you add more to the update than this?

UPDATE: My oldest grandson's health, the one with Cystic Fibrosis, is failing and is in need of a lung transplant. Please say an extra prayer for him that he can hold on and that a donor match is found quickly. The other grandson is on the road to recovery and is doing well. Again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your love and prayers.

Hi jrd!

That is the updated info I added today, along with "Updated" in the title. Thank you for your reply. As you can imagine, this is a difficult time for my family and we are grateful for all the prayers he can have sent out on my grandson's behalf.

been having some formatting issues recently

1) Using a Chrome browser on my desktop, and the upvote/downvote boxes for posts are messed up. The minus box appears below, and to the right of, the plus box.

2) Also, from my Android phone (also Chrome), pages sometime show up in plain text with hyperlinks, especially when I go to my account page.

Hey Ed

I left you a note on the top of yours. It was already posted and I usually just keep the first post up. Yours is not the only 1 to be unpublished, I just unpublished another one also so as to try to keep it contained to one thread. Thanks for posting it though.

Rule #6 on Site Guidelines

"Do not bump your own thread to keep it on the front page, or post the same non-related comment on multiple threads to promote your website or event."

I have noticed that this rule is not respected or enforced.

One poster in particular continually abuses this practice, despite having been banned before for this behavior.

Current post: "One drop of love, one kiss" has been bumped 7 times by the OP with no additional comments posted to the thread by other DP members.

Do the rules apply to ALL members, or are personal friends of the site's owner exempt from following the rules of courtesy?

Hello!

Thank You!

Looks like the "DP" music project might turn into something huge! I have heard from Thailand, Germany, France and Pennsylvania so far. It is a privilege to be able to do this and see it on the front page! Thank You!

"Featured!" Thank you! I will try not to let anyone down and make this happen!

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

DELETE,DELETE,DELETE

That is what I ask for, Please Delete me.

Really Odd! Tech error.

For at least the last 24 hrs. the times and dates on the summary of posts on pg 1 keep changing and don't match time/date when click-thru to full-post. Can you please fix? Goes back to normal if you go to pg 2 and then back to pg 1. Thanks. http://www.dailypaul.com/

No, I'm logged in and just reading/clicking

It's happening right now. How do I show you screen-shots?
Will that help? Thanks.

[edit: It's intermittent. I'll see if I can post you screen-shots here or somewhere. Thanks.]
