LOL a signature Del statement. :)

It's a 15 minute lock and it's built in to to keep folks from hacking your sign-in.

People run dictionary attacks on HSO logins?

Oh well, 15 minutes isn't bad.  At least we don't have to call someone to get it unlocked like some sites.

Oh, and you said "we will eventually see it and unlock you", which sounded like a manual process :)

I don't know Del, it's how the forums are set. We don't have an option right now on it.

It is what it is.

I just thought it was typical you with the draconian response you gave. :D

OK, call me confused???  There are two sites, it appears they both hold the same information, appears redundant.   What am I missing??

 

Thanks

There are two sites.  Some forums are on one and some on the other.  Some appear in the forum list on both sites.  A few are only on the list on one site. 

I am guessing this is in preparation for an expansion, so there could be a hso/Fishing Wisconsin site, for example, in addition to what is now available

Did we lose the Sports forums? I cannot seem to find them.

​No, fixed now.

​Each forum holds different information. Neither is the same. They do link to each other through forum redirects.

If you click on one of the Forums in the Minnesota Fishing Reports - Hunting category it will take you from the HSO site  to the FM forum you selected. They are easy to spot as they have no post count and they will tell you how many clicks on that link.

We will be implementing single sign-on possibly tomorrow. You sign-up or sign in to one forum and you have access to the other without the need to sign on or sign-up again.

There are nicer things coming and will wait until we have these forums stabilized. I suggest posting in here and giving out "Like this" to others now if you want to be in a VIP forum where it's limited and the best at sharing info can see and share detailed info.

Hey Rick, is there something I may need to do to be able to see newly posted pictures/photos?  I can see pics posted before the change but nothing that was posted today.  I am sure it is something on my end but not sure where to start.

Not that it matters really, but why did my post count fall by 200+?

Thanks

All I see is your text.  No symbol or other indication of a pic even being present. 

I posted pic in the bass forum this morning, and I could see the pics in the reply box as I was writing, when I submitted it and returned to forum all I could see was my text.  I believe it was Bartman that replied he could see pics fine.  I also can not see any pics Scoot posted of his sons turkey in the turkey forum.  However, all pics prior to Saturday I can see just fine.

That's weird, I see them fine. I don't know what to say. Maybe it's your cache settings?

It is just my mobile it seems.  Just logged on on my wife's laptop and and can see pics fine.  Now just to find what to mess with on the phone.  Any ideas for a Samsung galaxy 3?

I always start simple and that would mean a complete reboot or power cycle.  I had problems importing photos to the site (the old site) but when I would reboot my phone the problem would clear up and I'd be good to go for a while.  Worth a shot.

So how do we now go about posting pictures? The old way was so easy with the little icon at the top? And what about emoticons, all I see or get is a smile face in the above bar? I want this new system to work but I am not always a smile face guy! :-(

Leech,  posting pics is real easy!

Just click on the paperclip at bottom left of the reply box. 

Choose your file.

Choose your pic.

Pics will show in text box.

Then submit reply.

As far as other emoticons I can't help.

Why do they have that you click on the dot to get the first read?  Why would you not make the topic clicked on to bring you to the first thread?  Doesnt make much sense to me or any other forum that I am part of.  Ooops clicked the topic (which it use to always be) now i have no clue where in the thread I was.
