Furious Enough is Enough !!!!

Postby Jetranger » Thu Jan 10, 2019 2:42 am

Well that was interesting after I just spent like 20 minutes typing a well wrote letter for everybody to read only to "HIT the SUBMIT" button and have it "automatically Time me out" and want me to re'log back in,,, and upon doing so - "WIPE Out MY ENTIRE Message" I posted = WTF ???

Guess you'll never know what it was about now will anybody ????

"NOT" going to attempt to retype again I know that damn much !!!

Enough is Enough of wasting my time with BS like this !!!

Good Bye and Good riddance !!!!!!

Hi Jet, Do you mean this forum?
I am sorry to hear this but I have never experienced it nor heard of this happening on this forum. Server activity has been completely normal with no dips or stops in the graphs.

I HAVE OFTEN experienced this in PC's in general where I loose stuff and how frustrating it is. (Thank God for autosave now! 8-) )
You have my sympathy and if it was this server or forum then I apologise.

I know how you feel; I’ve had this sort of thing happen to me on other sites. I now type everything in Word first then copy & paste. It also (hopefully) checks my atrocious spelling.

I have had my comments disappear on this forum just like Jetranger but it hasn't happened for quite some time, probably a year or so.

Like Sinkrate I tend to write all my comments on Notepad and then transfer them to the forum once I have proofread and edited them.

If it moves and it's not supposed to - use the Duct Tape.
If it doesn't move and it's supposed to - use the WD40.

Personally I think Simviation is one of the more user friendly sites in the fltsim community.

Maybe Pete can clarify something for us. Does the Simviation Forum have some sort of embedded timer that keeps track of logged ion user activity?
It would watch how long you are signed in without any sort of movement and after a predetermined amount of time if it doesn't see any activity from a user
it would kick him/her out to make room for someone else to sign in. ( I hope I explained this idea with some amount of clarity) :think:

When you log in there's box you can check that keeps you logged in forever (Or nearly). I've months without having to log back in, so much so that I usually have to use the "forgot password" option when I do have to log back in. :p

No tracker or anything like that. Only what is necessary to allow users to remain logged in when they leave the page - cookies. Our cookies just remember your login details when you return. Nothing else. There is no limit on logged in users. No one should ever be kicked out - unless we rebooted the machine which does happen occasionally for maintenance. - but not often. No reboot for months.

You have 4 hours to edit.
Reason to disallow after that time? Because in the past many times people will post something, get replies, then change the original post completely, making the replies pointless.
I can make it longer but people have done a lot of damage to the forum in the past when they fall out with someone then delete everything they post. We had people with 1000's posts delete everything and this really messes with things.
Just trying to do the best thing - & suggestions always welcome. :)

some of my posts have been a topic locked


Yes Sir. Because you posted max size per thread, after and another and another... etc ..max size in the same topic. Thread ended up many MB. I sent you an PM about it. Still in my outbox. 8-)

some disappear or topic not exist and some pictures and videos have been removed who??


No videos removed (we can only link to a video..)
No topics of your removed. Only posts when they went way over max image size. (& PM sent - still in my outbox)
Pictures only deleted when they more than 5x exceeded max size and after my PM.


Forums are run for fun. But you have to understand - running server requires admin and rules otherwise things go very wrong. We are not Amazon or Google with servers all over the globe and a team to fix everything. Little ol simviation. But I have to make it work. The forums are part of the site and they also require bandwidth control. Hope you understand .. :)

That's exactly what I mean... :whistle: It has been great if you can respond to the posting, rather than send me a PM about it... :) But then nobody never knows what it was about? ??? ?

Due to respect Mr Pete,... :roll: I don't mind being wrong, and I'll admit that I'm wrong a lot... :shifty: :violin: :violin: and I never make the same mistake twice. I make it five or six times just to be sure. :? :oops: :violin: :violin:

:D Mr Pete, thank you, for understanding.... In appreciation of you and all that you do. :text-thankyouyellow:
