I am trying to make it so that I see 40 threads per page and can't seem to make it work. I chose 40 threads per page and 30 days max age, in the User CP. But it doesn't seem to be taking. I have logged out and back in but no dice. Any ideas?

Um....did you remember to submit the changes?

Yep and they are still there. Other things are going on -- the first column is now very wide (the one with the new post indicator etc). I think this is a browser compatibility issue. Sorry for bothering you.

No problem. I'll go in and see if I can fix it in your profile. The wide column thing happens to me when I first come in but rights itself.
I'm going to mess with your profile now so stand back!

I changed my browser identification to Safari and it fixed the width thing (unless you fixed it). I'm on Linux and don't use a standard web browser, but it is very similar to Safari. Still shows only 20 posts per page though. I guess I will live with that unless you can figure it out.

Just looked at your profile and don't see where I can change it. I'll check with Suzanne later. I think she had an all nighter!
Interesting email addy you have there. Did you set it up just for us? :lol:

It's a little hard to explain. Part of our mail server's features (we run our own mail/webserver) is that if the part before the - is legit and the part after the - doesn't exist, it sends the mail to the person before the -. It is useful for keeping track of who is giving your address out to marketers/spammers. I know that 3FC would never do such a thing but it is just a force of habit to register to websites that way now. For instance of my address was foo@bar.com and I registered with amazon.com, I would use foo-amazon@bar.com. Then if I got an email from Joe Spammer address to foo-amazon@bar.com I would know the only place they could have gotten my address was from Amazon.com. Make sense? :D

Gotcha! We hate spammers which is why we urge people NOT to put their email addies in their posts or signature. I just go in and delete them. Your registration email is only available for MODs and ADMIN.
