Update on my last post. I should have edited it first. When I hit "additional options", I get this.



No options to turn off replies :/.

That's really weird o_o Unfortunately I can't help further than that x_x

Fascinating!  I think I know what's going on here.

Awhile back, I changed the permissions so that non-staff couldn't request notification for threads in the Spam board, or for the Spam board itself, because it moved so fast, and fired off a lot of email replies to a lot of members.  So, you don't have access to subscribe to notifications, hence why the options don't show up in the Spam board, but they show up elsewhere.

HOWEVER.

There's a user option to always request notification of threads when you post in them.  It's supposed to be disabled by default, but that might've changed, I'll double-check.  I suspect what's happening is that you have that option turned on, and it's not checking the can_subscribe permission when you post, simply taking the default without giving the option.

SOLUTION:  I'm not 100% sure how to fix it the "right" way, but I'll look into it.  I'll also nuke all notification subscriptions for the Spam board in the database, since that really shouldn't be an option at all.  In the meantime, go to http://www.furryteens.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;area=notification and see if you can unsubscribe from the threads that way.

Well regarding my screenshot, I noticed that the button that was missing is there in boards such as "General Chatter", or other boards/threads which count towards your post count, unlike the spam boards, which is where I screencapped the page. By notifications, I meant new replies to my posts. So, when I click "Show new replies to your posts", that's where it notifies me. I clicked the link you sent me, but it only showed threads that I actually clicked "Notify" at the top/bottom of the thread (which isn't very many threads).

Oh!  No, there's no way to control what shows up on that page, it always shows all replies to threads you've posted in, and "notifications" refers very specifically to email notifications on FT, hence my confusion.

You can't (as far as I'm aware)
But you can link a picture from somewhere else.

Correct...you have to upload to an image hosting service, there's plenty out there...its just important to note that Tinypic is blocked here, and you can't direct link from furaffinity. I use photobucket c:

Then, you simply copy and paste the "direct link" into this code:

This might be allitle far stretched but a Live chat box sounds wonderful! Like an instant messanger that members can log onto when they come online.

I am always looking for furs who live near me! I live in Cartersville, Georgia! Which is in Bartow County.

There's a good app for it, it's called "AndChat" Dunno if you can get it through the app store though.. If not, there are multiple IRC apps out there..

IRC has been around for decades, and is still heavily used today because there aren't really any good direct replacements for it that can do everything IRC can do.  As a result, there are IRC clients/apps available for every operating system and device on the market.  In your case, search the app store for "IRC", there will be no shortage of results.  The suggested one, AndChat, is only available on Android (hence the name), but there are apps for iOS.  And Blackberry.  And Windows Phone.  And WebOS.  And whatever Nokia's using nowadays.  And Java non-smartphones.  And proprietary-OS non-smartphones.  And TVs.  And video game consoles.  And every computer operating system ever written.

On a related note, most web-embeddable chat boxes, like what you originally asked about, would either not work at all on a mobile browser (since most are Flash-based, which is disappearing, or use scripts with spotty compatibility), or would be so unusably slow that you wouldn't want to use it that way.

Its just the "Message Icon", I believe. Whenever you go to post, underneath the subject line, there's a "Message icon" drop-down menu. On other forums you can usually select from a couple different ones, and I'm guessing you used to be able to here c:

Little glitch, just thought you guys would find this interesting. I left my page open to the "Minor Rants" thread before I left the house for a bit. I refreshed the page and it gave me this:


There was NOT 36 replies as I was reading :P. There was only 9 since my last post, and I think I saw some of them before it gave me that.

I posted in the minor rants thread after that commenting on the glitch just for laughs, then I returned to the exact same url. Instead of 36, it gave me 37 replies while I was reading (probably adding my last post into it). Looked like this:


Just a funny little glitch I thought I should point out. Not a big deal at all of course :P.

Oh, and here's the url that glitches up for me http://www.furryteens.org/forum/index.php?action=post;topic=3347.11580;num_replies=11594 . I'm not sure if it will work for anyone else or not but there it is.

That's a truly fascinating glitch.  Apparently, the number of replies are part of the URL, so that the script can check how many there were when you started typing.  Really goofy way to do it, but whatever.  Somehow, your reply number got goofed, so it miscalculated.  Play with that URL, and change the last number, you'll see what I'm talking about :-)

Not exactly, the url updates whenever someone posts. It's up to 39 right now. If someone else posted in that thread I'm pretty sure that it would bump up to 40 with the exact same url. I may have to post in Minor Rants again just to see :P. However I just played with it like you said, and I do see what you are talking about. It's fun XD (keeps a moron like me entertained anyways LOL). Perhaps when someone posts, all numbers will be affected. Kind of cool
