The primary culprit for this is a cookie. This server like just about every other server uses cookies which are tiny text files that reside on the browser on your computer / device. This is how a website recognizes you. Sometimes people have "security" software that blocks or otherwise does things to cookies. So if you have software that requires you to manually approve storing cookies locally, and at some point in the past you denied approval this could be a problem. Sometimes a computer is infected with malware or other problems that affect it. Sometimes there is just a setting somewhere in a browser. Removing all redmen.com cookies might help.

I've posted in the past on how to remove all the redmen.com cookies from your browser. It's in the Help Forum. I'm swamped today otherwise I'd look it up for you.

Not sure if this is a cliche or the thread is locked but I tried to put something in the Aundre Hyatt thread however i get an error message saying I need to put something in the subject line which comes up blank. The subject line won't let me put anything in there.

Hi Paul,

Have to ever considered testing a removal of the "Quote" option for replies?

Some of these replies are taking up so much space to go through because of the carryover of previous replies.

Most of tome you can't even tell who a poster is replying to, or sometimes the reply isn't directly at the post being quoted or just tired of scrolling, just to read a three word reply etc.

Thanks for all the efforts !!!

All true but then without the quote function it will be a stream of random thoughts.

Paul, are the updates still on progress? Items seem to appear then disappear.

Yes. Currently running a development version of the forum software. It was updated yesterday but still a dev version. What has disappeared?

I don't care about the Karma field as it seems to be weponized by a couple of posters anyway but innocuous posts are deleted by someone or perhaps it's a glitch while in development mode.
