I have reset the password several times in CP and I am an expert at it, thanks to the lousy and vanishing and tricky menu for changing the password. Credit goes to the programmer who can achieve such a code - it is technically sound one, but programmed to reject any kind of password reject.
I wonder who will set it right ! I had already seen similar posts here on similar issues. Hope some one take this problem and get it done so that the password can be reset. I am quite happy with the contents and the above average quality of the content here..but it is a tough job to enter the site !
There must be 30 or so Spam posts all together yesterday, and the spam reporting mechanism isn't working - all it seems to do is report that downvotes are not allowed rather than mark it as spam.
How about creating a Spam forum, and giving half a dozen or so of the regulars the ability to move posts into it? That way we could clean up the site without reactivating downvotes? Just a suggestion...
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
I third your suggestion. The current series of Lounge posts by one "Jastinal:" are obnoxious.
I also cast my vote, worth 1/9,500,000, for these options, on the "flag" drop-down menu:
Violates Lounge Rules ... perhaps simplified to: "Not for the Lounge" ?
imho, replacing 'Abusive,' and just having: 'Violates Lounge Rules' would then, cover: not only what we usually consider abusive message content (defamation, slander, verbal assault, threats, etc.), but also posts that include NSFW, or non-KSS, content, inappropriate comments about religion, etc.
“Thus on many occasions man divides himself into two persons, one who tries to fool the other, while a third, who in fact is the same as the other two, is filled with wonder at this confusion. Thinking becomes dramatic, and acts out the most complicated plots within itself, and, spectator, again, and again, becomes: actor.” From a book by the Danish writer, Paul Moller, which was a favorite of Niels Bohr.
