There have been quite a few 522 errors for the past week or so, when hitting the TRF link.

Some other mods. had the same in the last week. It seems it happens periodically. I never had an issue with it (yet).

BTW, can you send some of the smilies by PM? I can test if it is actually possible to add them to the list.

Will do. You'll get them within a day or two.

Just testing. Don't worry the emoticons have been scanned for viruses.

Right, Ive had a look at IMO useful smileys and I have concentrated on the smaller smileys as I believe they are the most useful on this forum.
And I wonder if others may have wishes or comments to those selected so far.

All of them are gifs and they can be found here: https://app.box.com/s/v959x2aadhxplfvanrectydd00i22tyz

They are all found on free sites and all have been scanned twice for viruses.

It's easier to simply download the folders and view the smileys in comfort when you wish.

I have not visited the site for over a year the reason is; my computer was hacked. My checking account and credit card was violated. (money stolen). My computer was so messed up that even Dell Co. could not gain access. I missed posting comments on the Royal Forum. I usually use the Public Library Computer occasionally.

I recently began reading some posts by a former member who went by "Diarist". I have learned so much information in the posts I have read, but I can only see the last 500. She made a total of 650 posts. Is there any way for me to see the first 150? Here is a link to her last 500 posts: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...&pp=25&page=20

Thanks button being used to harass

How do I disable the thanks button?

A poster is using it to harass me.

He is using both the PM and the thanks button.

That's a disgusting use of that feature.

I don't think there is a way to disable the thanks button, but you should report the poster to the mods. You can flag the messages and thanks he's sending to you, and you can probably take a screenshot of the thanks that he's sent and send them to the mods.

What the poster is failing to realize is that he's giving you prestige on the forums by "thanking" you, although I doubt that's any consolation.

I think this incident that you've gone through Queen Camilla has served to show that even on our relatively sane and agreeable forum such as TRF is, there is the odd chance of being cyberbullied which I what I believe has happened to you. Saying something and reporting it to the moderators is definitely the way to go about resolving this problem.

Fortunately, I only had this happen to me once and wasn't sure if it was anything than someone disagreeing with me but as it ended up, the poster was banned not too long afterwards.

I'm so sorry you had to experience something like this.

Yes, report. I have sadly found people use PM's to send extremely rude messages that they know would get deleted by mods if they posted on the board. I put one poster on ignore because I got countless PMs to harass me and tell me I was too stupid to post here. Only experts should post on the forum, and I wasn't up to his standards.

I think you've hit on a solution here Countessmeout with the Ignore button. I'm not positive but wouldn't putting someone on ignore also bar that person from contacting you via the Thanks button and PMs? If not, it would be a good idea for the moderators to look into doing. Make the Ignore function universal on the site.

IMO there should be absolute zero-tolerance for anti-social behavior, whether it's on the forums or via PMs.

You should have absolutely no qualms about reporting repeat offenders.
Anyone can post a PM in anger, fair enough, if it's followed by an apology.
Otherwise there is no excuse at all!

If you are subjected to harassment, then there is no reason for you to show restraint, understanding, putting someone on ignore or even be angry for that matter.
Save the PMs and report whoever it is to the mods. Don't feel sorry, don't feel bad, don't be a nice girl.
Resistance is the only language bullies understand.

Anti-social behavior is wrong everywhere! And it's up to us here at TRF to eradicate it. - Also if it's someone who has been around since forever.

What a rude and disgusting thing to say. Some people just have to harass others.

What an offensive thing to do! That said,, I have to out myself. In the last couple of weeks I responded to a new-ish member with a Thanks that acknowledged what they said but also explained some of the informal "rules" we follow on the forums. I was trying to guide them gently. So I know at least I have used the THANKS button with an ulterior motive.
I think it hard for new people to understand how we function at our best here on the Forums. I also think it is hard (however new/old) to always make the very best choice when posting a reply in which we object to a comment. I also know I don't rep for the majority.
Adepts here never bully, but they do convey messages that try to guide people into the tribe. People did it for me. I learned. It was a good thing.
Heck, people DO it for me and I learn more and it is a good thing.
A very wise boss once told me that that the comments from others which most irritate are asking me to face reality. That same boss said that every stone I hurled at others was likely a flaw in my own tool kit.
A recent work seminar wisely guided that feedback be:
  • True
  • Helpful
  • Inspiring
  • Necessary
  • Kind
It's something on which I am working. We all can.

Don't bully. Accept well-intended feedback and we all benefit. Heaven knows, I benefit from all your feedback - so Thanks!

Queen Camilla, please forward the messages to one of the admins.

It goes without saying that if anyone is being harassed via PM, please forward these message so we can investigate and take necessary actions.

Thank you.

I had one of those PM too I just said don't do that again or I will report you. Never heard from them again I think it's likely these people have some mental health issues.

Some time yesterday, I started to be able to open ImageUpper.com links - but no picture would appear.
I use Firefox as a browser. Is anyone else having this issue? Can anyone guess at a workaround?
I've tried the obvious check for updates, restart the PC, try to open the link in different ways, etc. Thanks.

Same here. Its not our browsers because I've tried to see the pictures in Opera, Chrome and Internet Explorer with absolutely no luck.
