One thing I still can't do is to change my avatar. Dunno why I can't, just get the error message. Anyone else that has the problem?


Can you define what the error message is at all?

Since spam attacks have increased of late, it has become necessary to prevent "ordinary" members from starting new threads.  I hope to lift this restriction eventually, but for now if you are human and would like to start threads, please let me know in this thread, and I will manually give you permission to do so.

Sorry it had to come to this.

Feel free to tell us something about yourselves while your posting!


I was under the impression that this was directed toward NEW members.

Why are members, who have an obvious post-count, checkin' in to say that they are not spammers?

Am I missing something?

There was an error uploading the avatar: Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2013/07. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

Every time, every single time I try. Doesn't matter what the size is, always this error.

When i tested this a few months ago it seemed to work fine.  I'll check it this evening or tomorrow, as I don't have FTP access to the site here at work.

Thanks for the feedback!

The same thought crossed my mind, fleetingly. Then I remembered it was FE and there are many random posts and derailed topics that the above shouldn't be unusual.

 

Not a "new" member, but due to my low post status, one thing you should know is I am of the human species.

@ HB - I've cock blocked 4 Spam sucking fuckers in the past couple of days.  The filter is working, but are you following up and killing the Spam accounts they opened?  Should I be doing something to let you know I've denied their posts?

Not always.  Are they repeat offenders?

For some reason the Captcha on the site no longer seems to be catching spammers - not sure the reason why and haven't had the time of late to look into it further.

Now I'm thinking about a different version of Terminator where Skynet was just a spambot with artificial intelligence and all the terminators spoke in garbled English and urls.

 

Edit: Also Blade Runner but the replicants are spambots.

To get permissions to create new threads you must answer the following:

You’re in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a tortoise, it’s crawling toward you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can’t, not without your help. But you’re not helping. Why is that?

Because I'm waiting for my dinner to finish cooking.  Turtles are high in protein and nutrients.
I like to poop naked.

Because I already flipped the fucking turtle over. I have better things to do than stand around in the desert flipping turtles over all day.
