Dear Jen,

OK, I think this would go here. How about an "OT" site, sort of like the Dumping Brass, but for all the OT stuff that comes up on the FALFILES? No flames, no arguements, just stuff that comes up, like CETME questions (which I didn't ask but have been a help to me), Mauser questions (ditto), etc. "Show Me Your Dogs" and the "I have an old German guy working with me" that quickly became a flame would go in the OT section. Just an idea.

awd: if you search this forum you will find that this issue has been discussed at length previously and that the date in the system is correct but a bug is causing it to be displayed incorrectly.

If you ever need any support I've been doing PC and server networking and repairs since 92.

Saw the SOUTHERN AMMO in the Ammo site w/moved, but not to where. Logged on and it still wouldn't go to the site or let me see it. So what am I doing wrong?

Jen July 03, 2003 20:22

Just by clicking on the topic should bring you right to it if it shows as moved. The moved: topic is a link to the topic in it's new forum.

Carp Killer July 05, 2003 18:35

I'm wondering what happened to the post "Are things in Kalifornia really this bad?". I got a notice that FIREJUNKIE had responded Sat, July 5, 2003 6:26 AM on my e-mail. But when I click to read that thread, it won't let me see it. In fact the thread has disappeared. What happened?:confused:

MarkBall July 16, 2003 17:14

Hey Jen,

It works. Them member info I mean. However, it still doesn't show my contribution. May have been posted under the wrong FALaholic #. Just checking in, sent a PM earlier with the info.

Thanks
Mark

ironman0311 July 31, 2003 11:23

Jen,

I changed my Options the other day to auto notify me as to any posts on my threads. I went in and changed it BACK to NOT notify me automatically (numerous times) a few day slater (and again today), but, I am STILL getting massive auto emails notifying me of comments to threads.

In short, the change back is not being applied.


Any help?


Thanks,

Ironman0311

Jen July 31, 2003 12:25

The individual threads that you posted to while you had that turned on still have the email notification set to ON. You'll have to go thru each thread you're still getting notifications from and edit your post to remove the notify me of new posts bit for that thread.

rynich January 23, 2004 23:30

Jen,
I wouldn't bring this up here, but I can't access anything on the AK Files. It won't let me post or mail anyone. Could you tell me what I can do if I can to fix it.
Thanks,
Ryan Nichols

Black Dot
 
Jen,when I post a new topic ,there is a black dot on the envelope in the far left column.I don't see this on other member's post.What is the meaning of this...Paladin:confused:

Jen February 01, 2004 21:58

You've answered your own question...

The black dot means that is a thread that YOU are participating in.

problem viewing threads under services
 
Jen

I have gone to marketplace then services and 11 threads are showing but when I click into services only two threads come up. If I log off my user name I can view all 11 threads but I can't reply or post. What to do?

Jen April 06, 2004 22:28

At the bottom of the threads listing there's a drop box that says "from [last 2 days]" Change the date and you'll get more or less threads depending on the timespan you want to display.

Ssarge July 09, 2004 22:57

Jen.
I previosly had a problem with a sellers rating from a member that I had not even sold anything to. The bad rating went away, but with all the GP VS SD stuff going on, now that it's being resolved is there a formal way to challenge a bad sellers rating or are we just screwed?

subsea70 July 17, 2004 10:45

For most of the last week I have tried to log on and been denied with a wrongpass word flag, when I try to get a new password nothing happens. I have tried various methods of contacting the FALFILES, this is a last resort.. My FALFILES name was martin35. Was I banned for some reason?

EMDII July 17, 2004 10:50

Did you look carefully at the pop-up. MOST have a readable sign-in and PW embedded; this prevents automated login hacks. We recently had a back-end hack attempt trying to access user PW. Foiled, but Jen keeps this applet running for a reason.

You are here today I see.

Send us a note. We'll contact the other person, and act according to our judgement.

I admit to minimal computer skills, why can I not log in under my martin35 name and number? Reply jimmartin35@netscape.net or jim_martin35@hotmail.com

Jen July 26, 2004 22:29

I reset your pass and emailed you instructions on how to reset your pass to the hotmail address.

bohica762 August 12, 2004 17:25

how to reduce size of picture
 
Hi Jen. I am trying to figure out hos to reduce the size of a digital picture of myself to use in an Avitar on the FALfiles site. How do I do that? The size of the Avitar is very limited, and I don't have any pics that small. Please let me know how you do that?

Sorry Sidney, but looks like mrbonecrusher has already used your picture as his avitar in his post up just a couple of posts above this, so you'll just have to find another one. :D :D :D :D Just kidding of course. Hope you and family have an great Christmas holiday.

spatin December 25, 2005 12:23

Ha! Merry Christmas to you and your family too Bob.

I was thinking this morning about trying to contact someone over at DSA and maybe some of the other FAL builders and parts suppliers to see if we can get some sponsors for the event in April. Will work on that after Christmas.

But for today, have a great Christmas and enjoy this wonderful weather.

I sent my money a couple of weeks ago, sent some
emails too. Still just a member, I'd like to attach some pics.

Thanks

thexrayboy August 25, 2006 20:18

Don't mind me. I'm new here and just testing on how to post here. Figured this was the thread to practice on.

STGThndr October 19, 2006 05:25

Email of thread?
 
Im not getting email notifications of posts on threads I have subscribed to. THo I log in every day, the log shows that I have not been on the board since Oct 13. 2006. I certainly have logged in and posted since that date. Also the board lags and drags in loading, never did before. Whats up?? thanks STGThndr

login script? and private message counter
 
When I get private mssgs and read them, the new private message counter at the login page shows that I still have them even though I've read them. The only way to reset it seems to be by logging out and then logging back in.

The problem is, when I log out and then back in, it resets ALL threads and forums to "all read status", like I've read them all. I've looked for an option to turn "all read" after log out to "off", but cannot find any.

Any suggestions?
SM

Gunga Din December 30, 2006 16:46

SM - Try refreshing the main page. That works for me in IE7.

StrongMedicine December 30, 2006 16:56

Hey GD,
I have tried that, both there and in the mssg screen, to no avail.
Thanks though!

Don't use the "back" button to return to the main page; use the "The FAL Files Forums" button. This works for me.

davedude January 13, 2007 10:07

Jen,

I cannot change my member status line info. There is no box to do so under my profile screen.
Please enable this function for me.
Thanks

Dave Dude


PS: I been PM'ing Goderator about it but it has not been resolved by that means....

AndyC January 13, 2007 15:43

There's a section near the bottom called "Custom User Text" right underneath your birthdate in the User CP - you mean that? I've set mine to say "Casual hero" - is that what you're asking about?

davedude January 14, 2007 21:30

Andy,

No, that box is not there. FalFiles admin enables that when you become a contributor I think. They may have forgot to in my case but I can't seem to get it changed by asking with PM's so maybe these posts will ba acted on, I hope.

Dave Dude

ILM Sniper February 12, 2007 11:41

Jen-

Has the contribution levels for posting pics changed? I made a contribution but still cannot post pics.

Gunga Din February 12, 2007 20:34

Hi Snipes -

When it says "Contributor" right underneath "Bilge Rat", you will be able to post photographs. Your contribution just hasn't been posted yet.

HK Files?
 
I'm under the impression that the HK Files are under the same administration as the FAL files. If so, is anyone monitoring new member registrations over there? I registered several weeks ago, and never got any confirmation back. Now, I have a question about mounting a Stanag mount on my PTR 91 I'd like to post there, but I can't log in because my registration was never processed, apparently. Can anyone here help with that?

rawheadjim March 15, 2008 13:05

Pic posting approval needed
 
I just purchased a Belgian FAL that I have concerns with. Some people have replied on here that they need to see pics to be able to help me decide if I should send it back or not. Please let me know if I can be approved to attach pics since I only have 3 days to return the rifle to the seller on Guns America. I've been on the Sig and AR15 forums with the same name for close to two years so my feedback is good if you need to check it there.
Thanks!

Radio March 15, 2008 13:19

I appreciate that you are giving "references" but they don't mean anything here, in the way you intend.

To post pics from YOUR computer you'll need to be at least a Contributor (or higher). You CANNOT otherwise.

To post pics from another location, ANYBODY can do. First, copy the URL of exactly where your photo is. Next, just type [img] then paste your photo link, like "www.rare or fake gun?", then follow it with [/img]. OR, you can let the Files do it for you by clickin on the IMG button directly above the text box while typing up your post, then pasting in your URL, then clicking OK.

Obviously if you have NOT had your photo hosted elsewhere, and you are NOT at least a Contributor, you are helpless. So go to any third-party host and upload your pictures, THEN you can link to them here on the Files.

HTH,
--Radio

my contribution
 
Hello,

I'm new, and I sent in my contribution on May 13, but my status hasn't changed and I had no idication that you recieved my money vai paypal. Could you check this please?


thanks

rawheadjim March 20, 2008 21:40

Thanks Radio, several members replied within minutes of my request and already told me how to post from another site. I posted pics, got feedback, and have sent the rifle in question back to the seller as of last Saturday. I appreciate all of the advice from forum members who quickly assessed this rifle, which was not at all as advertised. How much of a contribution does it take to be able to post pics directly?
