Can the number of incorrect password entries be increased to something more reasonable, like 5? I just got locked out of my account for 15 min after entering the wrong password twice.

Its set to 3 attempts but we've raised it to 4 for now. 

 

Edit: In fact you just caught a bug. It does indeed lock after 2 attempts and it's not supposed to. Will see about getting this fixed.

 

Edit 2: fixed and it should only lock after 4 attempts.

This doesn't tell us anything and is useless as far as feedback goes.

Want to send a PM to admin, but I get:

Quote

You are only allowed to send 1 message per day. Please try again later.

 

In fact, I have not sent any PM. Is it because my account is still not promoted? Thanks.

You do not request it, we determine it after 1 week. Your post count is also not sufficient yet. The 5 post rule no longer applies.

My account is more than 2 months old, but there was no activity at first week. I thought maybe I have to request it again. Well, thanks for the reply!

You do not need to request anything. Just continue participating and you will get promoted.

There's only an X amt of download bandwidth allocated for Promoted/Registered users a month. You must have exceeded that allotment and therefore must wait until next month or purchase T|I Elite Membership.

Unfortunately we cannot manually reset your count. To do so would mean altering the database and we can't do that for a single member.

There's these little features built into the forum which makes writing text a little more rich.

 

The @Name feature, for instance, lets me get people's attention.

Quoting someone sends them a notification, useful for rapid back-and-forth communication.

 

Highlighting part of the text in someone's quote lets me quote just that part (although the button for "Quote this" doesn't always show up for some reason). Ideally I'd have preferred being able to quote the entire post and then trimming off what I don't want to respond to, but this approach makes a lot of sense as well, particularly with very long posts where I don't want to be spending a whole 5 minutes trimming text off from quotes.

 

Quotes are collapsible, too. Though I do wish they were collapsed by default when the quote is either:

A: Extremely long, or

B: Contains pics.

 

Another thing that would be nice is... Greentext.

 

>implying we shouldn't be allowed to greentext

Also, I noticed that the HP notebook board has two sub-boards: HP Consumer-class notebooks and HP Business-class notebooks.

Is there any reason the Lenovo notebook board doesn't have a separate sub-board for business-class Thinkpads?

There is a bit of an issue with the private messages.

I could not find anything in the rules that limit a pre-promotional user to send PMs.

Even so I wasn't able to sent PMs to @Prema (I only tried with him) in the pre-promotional period.

Another issue is that the interface gives you a generic error instead of informing you that you are still in pre-promotion period (if this is a real limitation and I've missed it when I read the rules)

This is done on purpose to limit spam PMs and file begging.

So, not a problem :D

 

But it could be stated on the forum rules.

Earlier today I tried sending a PM to a member with 80 reputation and an elite membership, but the PM failed with "so and so is unable to receive messages". This error seems rather ambiguous and I see no reason for the error to occur.

His mailbox may be full. Who were you sending it to?

thegh0sts. If the inbox is full, the error message should be more specific.

I checked his account and his inbox is full. I'll see what I can do about making the error message more specific. I'm also going to raise the PM count for members in general. 

 

Edit: PM quota for registered (promoted) members is now 300 up from 50. For T|I Advanced members it is 400. T|I Elite get a lot more based on their tier.
