Define 'bad'. Do you mean 'bad' as in offensive or 'bad' as in not working?

If the former, there are some links in the FAQ:

Private Messaging
I cannot send private messages!
I keep getting unwanted private messages!
I have received a spamming or abusive e-mail from someone on this board!

Basically it says send a copy of the spam/abusive email to your admin team.

You can report bad posts with a click of a button. I can't actually check the PM stuff right now because I am at work but I'll try to look into it when I get home.

Yikes, good question.

If you have the permission to bump a thread, you'll find the link at the top of the thread:

Image

At the moment, it might be that the average mod can only bump the threads they they themselves created. I will investigate more - but not now it's past midnight.

Ah, there's a trick. If you place your cursor over the youtube button, a little text box comes up that says:

Quote:
Enter the video ID string -- the video ID string is the part after the v= in the URL


So if the URL is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aqvikMcpGQ you just put the 3aqvikMcpGQ part between the youtube boxes.

Code:
[youtube]3aqvikMcpGQ[/youtube]

Hmm, can you see my YouTube?

I'm wondering if your permissions are screwy. It maybe something we have to fix from this end.

Could you just type what you're typing so I can see what isn't working. Just put it inside the code button:
Code:
[code][/code]

Also any error messages coming up.

Hmm

I assume you are typing
Code:
[youtube]a_zmQcBfKjY[/youtube]

with no equals sign and no space between the YouTube boxes.



Vid works OK for me, I checked your premissions and I couldn't see anything amiss. Grrr. I'll have to dig deeper.

There are two methods, I have only done piccies for one.

Method 1:

In the forum, look at the top right hand corner of the board and there should be a link called 'Moderator control panel'. From there you can select the threads of interest and then down the bottom there is a menu of actions incluing lock/unlock/sticky etc.

I must write up a help on this


Method 2:

First click on the thread/topic to open it then scroll down to the bottom of the screen, you should see the Quick-mod tools. There you can set lock and unlock and a host of other things.

Image

If you can't see the quick-mod tools, there may be something stuffed with your board or user permissions give us a buzz and we'll check it out.

I have Quick Mod Tools, but when it's looked the only options I get are to sticky, go global, and make as an announcement. I can't find the Moderator Controls at all.

Hmm, looks like a problem at our end. Oh hold on. When I was testing this as Thom E Gemcity (he's our test user on the site), I could not do many editing things to topics that he hadn't started. I'll have to dig deeper.

Edited to say I didn't have to dig vary far, you don't have mod power on your own board. I'll just see if I can remember how to do that. Please listign to this friendly on hold music....

Yo now have standard moderator power over your author forum and all it's sub forums. Hopefully things should be a tad easier now.

I'm stumped.

Private Messages:
1. Why did a mesage wind up in my "Outbox" instead of my "Sent Messages" folder?

2. At the top it says it was sent on Oct 2nd.
- If so, why isn't it in my Sent folder?

3. When I click on the message, it acts like a message I Received. I can't do anything except reply or quote.

4. So how do I access the message to actually send it? Or has it been sent and not read?

This isn't really a help issue, but I didn't think it warrented it's own thread. Under users online now, there is one listed as Alexa[Bot]. This user has no profile to click on. What does that mean? I'm just curious.

Those are bots that the Internet browsers like Google, Yahoo, MSN, Alexa, etc send out to grab info for when people do Internet searches. They are on most sites from time to time, but just don't show up as users online. I thought I had it set up so that only global moderators and admins could see the bots in the users online section, but clearly that isn't the case. :) I'll check into it.

In the last few days, there has suddenly been a limit on how many people I can PM at once and how few characters I can have in a post. Is this just me? I can't see anywhere on the site where these limits might have been set by me accidentally, but it's a new thing because before this week, I was PM-ing seven people at once and now it's only letting me PM five...which is kind of annoying.

I hadn't noticed either of those, but I received a PM from Lawral earlier and she mentioned she could only PM 5 people. That really sucks if that's happening, because I certainly have more than 5 people on my PM list for fic updates. I don't know what's going on. I'll check in with the rest of the staff and see if anyone else knows what's going on.

Just hoping you can help me figure out how to put up sub-forums on my author page. I'd like to sort things a bit differently if I can...

Thanks!
Linda

Linda, if you go to Member Requests, you can request sub-forums and one of the staff will make them for you. Just let us know what you want us to call them and we'll make them for you. It's something only the administrators and moderators can do.

I had 2 quick questions for you all:

1: I wanted to sticky the topics on my main page of my author, but it isnt letting me. I looked at the list of quick mod tools and the sticky link isnt there. How do I get that fixed.

2: I moved a fic from the main page to a subforum in my author board. Why is the link to that fic on my main page saying moved? Should it have been deleted and reposted?

Thanks for the help, still navagating my way through this site.

Amber

You should have full access to sticky on the quick mod tools now - check back. I'll have to look up the moved thing. I don't want to delete the moved notice and then find the whole thread has gone.

Thanks for help with the sticky thing, it works now.

If you delete the thread, no worries. I have it saved to my PC and need to get several other things in my author forum anyhow. I can just replace it.

Help! I accidentally posted the same fic twice, and to get rid of one of them, I deleted the post within the thread. But now the thread is still there, but with no post and I don't know how to get rid of it (the thread, that is). :( The dead thread is here. Any suggestions?

They're sending messages via the NFA Full Members "group," which you would be a part of, since you have more than 50 posts. We're working on this is the staff area; Barb sent out a message regarding replies to those original messages, so hopefully people will have read that and REMOVE the NFA Full Members from their replies and just PM the person who sent the original message. As far as not receiving the e-mails, we're working on options where people wouldn't be bothered by the PMs. The only thing I can tell you right now is that you're receiving the messages because people are PMing all full members and you fall into that group.

I think I'm probably being really stupid but is it possible for me to move one thread in a sub-forum of my author board to another sub-forum? I'd like to rearrange my stories but can't find a move option anywhere. If it can't be done, that's ok, too - just being strange and over-organised!

Jo, it looks like we missed a step in getting you set up. :-/ I think I've got it fixed now so that you have power over your forum.

If you now open the topic you want to move and scroll 'way down to the bottom of the page, past the "Post a Reply" box, then on the left-hand side below "who is online", you'll see a drop down box called "quick-mod tools." Just select the action you want to take from the list.

If you still have problems, let us know.

Hmm, I'm not sure if you can lock an entire forum . . . I know that full members who have an author forum can lock individual threads within their author forum, but I'm not sure about whole forums. I will check in with the other staff members and see if anyone knows.

If you go to the "post reply" option, click on the "url" button and then copy the website you want to link to and post it after the equal sign. In otherwords, do this: [url=your website here]if you want to get fancy and put a title or something, put it here[/url]. Hope that's what you were looking for!

Ahhh, Ok I think I see now. Smack was giving the right answer but I think we need a few more details.

Are you saying you want to do what ChanndlD has done in the weekly challenge - put in a LINK like this:

channeld wrote:
Title: Love is Like a Lightning Bug
Author: channelD
WWC #: 7
Rating: FR13
Parings: Jimmy and an OC
Characters: (optional) Jimmy, OC, Ducky; Gibbs and his team in the background
Genres: (optional) romance/drama
Warnings: Involves references to someone involved in Season 6 episodes Last Man Standing and Dagger.
Summary: Jimmy has doubted his ability to find a woman. Then a new agent comes into his life...
Link to story: LINK


If so then if you look at what she actually typed:
Code:
[b]Link to story[/b]: [url=http://forum.nfacommunity.com/viewtopic.php?f=87&t=2846][b]LINK[/b][/url]


You'll see the LINK to the story has been surrounded by the [url] brackets. She has then added an '=' after the first URL and cut and paste the link to her actual story thread.

I see you posted the same question to the hyperlinks how to. I had answered there saying I needed more information. That was the right place to post it and that how to was supposed to help you.

Basically, you go to your story thread and highlight the address - the http:// bit. Then you copy and paste that into the URL bit.

So if you want to link to your story on "Luck of the Irish"

Code:
[url=http://forum.nfacommunity.com/viewtopic.php?f=165&t=1992]LINK[/url]


and you get:
LINK

If you are still having problems, just tell us where your weekly challenge story is and we can show you how to create the link.
