  1. Well, this is an interesting thread.
  2. Also removed the requirement for status updates to receive admin approval before they get posted.
  3. The setting is now on. I kept it off until enough people read this post.
  4. "Pride: The Series" hires "General Hospital's" Scott Sickles as its new head writer, names Maryam Myika Day as breakdown writer. More The post ‘Pride: The Series’ Names ‘GH’ Scribe Scott Sickles as Head Writer appeared first on Soap Opera Network. Read More
  5. Status Updates The status updates feature on the SON Community is to be used by a member to share random thoughts and ideas only. It is not meant to drive discussion that could be better served in one of the available forums, nor should it be utilized to comment on the functionality of the SON Community, its management or staff. If the feature's purpose receives numerous violations of its purpose, it will be removed without notification.
  6. Entertainers from the world of acting, modeling, music, sports, movies and more ask McDonald's to adopt a comprehensive chicken welfare policy. More The post Soap Stars Join ‘Dear McDonald’s…’ Campaign Against Animal Cruelty appeared first on Soap Opera Network. Read More
  7. In my quest to tackle known issues one at a time, I'm working on getting the PM link not working issue rectified. Currently, the link to Private Messages is not working, only in the sense of when you get a notification on the top right-hand side of the message boards you hover your mouse over the envelope icon and click on the subject title of the PM and get brought to an error page (as shown in attachment). The only way to read your PMs at current is to go directly to the link for PMs (https://boards.soapoperanetwork.com/messenger/) or click on the "Go to Inbox" link (same as previous). The overall issue is a tedious endeavor at best but has become the primary way to get to PMs particularly when on a mobile device. Additionally, if the ability to click on the subject title to read a PM wasn't meant to be, it wouldn't bring anyone to a dead page. This issue is being looked into as we speak.
  8. Invision did something and has reported this issue as fixed, as some of you have noticed. It'll be fixed in future versions of Invision for other site owners soon.
  9. Encountered the issue myself using a dummy account. Having someone at Invision look further into this matter as we speak.
  10. Let's tackle the Ignore User Settings issue that has gone unaddressed. Many of you have said that you are ignoring a user but you still see their posts. Until recently, I was under the impression that all you did was click the user's name and select ignore or something to that effect. Turns out, you have to select that user and ignore them using select criteria. There isn't a one-click "ignore" and you don't ever see their postings. With that said, the setting to ignore a user has been on in the backend for several years, but it appears as though Invision may have made changes at some point in upgrades to how you ignore a user so that you have to ignore them individually based on "posts," "messages," "signature" and "mentions," which means that if you don't have them selected for each individual option they aren't truly ignored in the sense most thought the ignore feature meant. If you aren't sure if you are properly ignoring a user, make sure to check your ignore setting by going to the ignore page: https://boards.soapoperanetwork.com/ignore/ When there, type in the person's name and check off the corresponding boxes. If you already have them selected for everything and they are still not being ignored, I'll then be able to get Invision to further investigate. Currently, I'm getting the message that everything is okay with the system in that regard. Let me know your thoughts. ADDENDUM: From my previous investigations into this, Invision doesn't have a solution or seems to be aware of a solution to this problem. However, I've seen numerous board owners complaining the feature isn't working as it should on their sites as well.
  11. So the first post is ignored but the second isn't. Is their second post quoted like I just did yours? Can you send me a screenshot as an example of what you are seeing for both occasions via email or PM, whichever you feel comfortable?
  12. "The Young and the Restless" executive producer Anthony Morina and co-executive producer/head writer Josh Griffith discuss Phyllis switcheroo and more. More The post ‘Y&R’ Producers Discuss Gina Tognoni and Michelle Stafford Switcheroo appeared first on Soap Opera Network. Read More
  13. Again, my apologies over the confusion. Just to delve a little bit more into what happened...while I was making changes to the forum to accommodate the Support Desk forum receiving better attention, considering my consistent calls for emailing me hasn't helped any, I had gotten interrupted/side-tracked by external factors. Until I got an email from Toups and the messages here, I hadn't realized I didn't finish what I had started. Thankfully, it didn't take too long to get the impacted forums back where they belonged and I didn't somehow delete them. I was really worried about that as I didn't see any of them in the backend until I did a search for them. Beyond that, I do not want to fight with anyone, nor do I want anyone to think that I treat the members like children or that I do not care just because you may or may not receive a reply or find something still not working after informing me of a problem through alternative means. As I've said numerous times, I do not like banning people for any reason. And when it comes to ignoring people, the feature is turned on and there doesn't appear to be any known issues outside of this forum per Invision. If they have fixable solutions, I have fixable solutions. I didn't create this forum on my own. But clearly the longer we use it it has shown itself to no longer be the best forum platform like it once was. I have inquired with third-party services as to better solutions, and have been presented with a couple that might work out, but that would be costly and would require us to abandon the SON Community as it currently exists. Of all the soap opera website owners, I believe I'm the most transparent and the most accessible. As such, if the alternative is a new platform, would this be something some of you would be okay with us considering? Would you continue using the SON Community with a different platform and different mechanisms?
  14. Vee, I am getting sick and tired of your complaining about the management of the SON Community. If you think you can do better, please go right ahead and create your own place to vent. I will not have any more of it on this community. Going forward, keep your thoughts on the management to yourself or bring your complaints directly to me off the forum and I would consider addressing them. Constantly berating me on the forum or in Status Updates on how things are done or handled as if I don't give a damn and am just willingly ignoring things because you have not bothered to discuss an issue with me directly does not entice me in giving your complaints any credence or my time. If a valid concern, there are ways to address them. If not addressed appropriately, who will even listen? With that said, if you are aware of people who claim they do not visit the website because of a malware problem. I think that would be something that warrants valid discussion, but this is the first you are saying anything about it and again, it's within a complaint that offers no solutions. We do NOT have a malware problem. If people were aware of how to properly use the internet, and not closed up in a box looking for a place to blame for their issues with their computers, they'd know the difference between what is malware and what is not.
  15. The Off-Topic Lounge and other forums mistakenly were placed under the Entertainment News and Editorials archive forum when I moved the Support Desk forum to the top of the page. I do not recall touching either forum, but that's what happened. They were not deleted and they were still (albeit less) visible on the SON Community forum index page, just not as prominently visible as it should be. This has been corrected. My apologies.
