    New Forum

    Hi everyone. I see this morning we are being redirected to the new forum. I knew it was coming but unfortunately I didn't know when. I'm just finding my way around it. Let me know if you have any issues with it. The new address is https://mdsc.ca/forum/ You should be redirected to this new address if you have the old one bookmarked, but you may want to update your bookmark.

    It was quite a surprise to see the change when I logged in! It doesn't take much to throw a tech challenged person like me off Will have to experiment and find my way around. Glad you're on the case AJ!

          Ack! What does it mean when you write something up, go to post it, and get this message pop-up: "Edit conversation"..."The string you entered for the image verification did not match what was displayed":? I seem to have lost the post into cyberspace....

            Did you have to do an image verification?

            It could have just been a hiccup on website, although a very annoying one I'm sure.

            What OS (operating system) do you use? Which browser? (internet explorer, Microsoft edge, chrome, firefox or some other one?) Do you stay signed in when you leave the forum? (I do).

            If it happens again, I will talk to the webmaster.

              Hello AJ and Uni. I ran into that nasty little beast several times as well. (I use google chrome) I don't have an image verification either , but Uni's wording is pretty much dead on. I'm not positive about this, but on the old forum it used to say something like "keep me logged in" with a little box to check to do so. If you didn't check the box then it signed you out after about 10 minutes if you had not posted anything.

              I think this is the same problem. At the log in there is a little bx that sez remember me and a couple of times I didn't hit it, and I think that is when I got that message. When I remember to tick that box, I don't seem to get the message. Take Care. paul m

                Okay Paul. Since it seems to be more than a hiccup, I'll contact the webmaster. Thanks to both of you for bringing this to my attention.

                  Things seem to be working ok now, except that I can't post certain emoticons. And I like emoticons

                    Uni let me know if you get the error again. I talked to the webmaster but he needs more details of the steps taken to get the error and a screen shot.

                    For those who don't know under advanced options the HTML, I changed it to HTML On- Convert Linebreaks when posting and it worked.

                      Hello AJ. I started this at 10:49pm and I went back at 11.09 and tried to send the post and it gave me the "Edit etc etc" bit again. What was maddening was I was obviously timed out, but the forum still showed me at logged in. I had to log out in order to post this. Plus what the "Edit etc etc" has to do with telling you that you are timed out, who knows.

                      Although if you are careful, when you log back in if you go to where you left off, it will ask you if you want to work on or discard saved program(that part works) . Now I taken a screen shot ,although I can't seem to get it right (windows 10 can be annoying) . I will post this and see if you can see my screen shot. Take Care.paul m

                            It looks like the forum will take jpg but not png files for pictures. Here's a picture of our kitty that we had to say goodbye to on Friday.
