New Forum FAQ

Postby Ben Sobieck » Thu May 05, 2011 11:57 am

• Why can't I log in?

Every member of the forum who joined before May 3, 2011, needs to reset their password. Go here to do that:

http://www.deeranddeerhunting.com/login ... stpassword

Your new username/password will work on both our new website and our forum.

• OK, I reset my password. But the e-mail from the forum didn't go to my e-mail.

You may have reset the e-mail attached to your account recently. This information may have been lost in the transition. Try accessing your older e-mail.

• How do I register as a new member?

If you are new to our website and also haven’t used our forum, you will need to register first. You only need to register once; this will also become your forum username/password.

Go here to register:

http://www.deeranddeerhunting.com/login?action=register

Also please note that this will give you a username and password for our new website also, at http://www.deeranddeerhunting.com.

• What happened to my posts?

Unfortunately, some posts were lost in the transition to the new forum.

• Why does it say I last logged in many months ago?


This is also an unfortunate side effect of moving to the new forum.

• What happened to my avatar?

That may also have been lost in the transition. Reset your image in your profile.

Note: Pro Staffers with missing Pro Staff avatars should contact Ben.Sobieck@fwmedia.com.

• I don't like the new font size. Can I change it?

Yes. In the upper right, you'll see an A with arrows on either side of it. Clicking that will adjust the font size.

• Why did you move the forum? I liked the old one.

Change can be a temporary nuisance, especially on a forum you've come to call home. But it was time for an upgrade. On May 5, 2011, Deer & Deer Hunting launched a new website, enhanced its blogs and moved to a new forum platform. These changes were made in response to the features you've requested over the years. In all cases, we put the user experience first.

However, just as with any website transition, that meant a few bumps in the road.

• I have more questions. Who can I contact?

There's a more comprehensive FAQ here: deeranddeerhunting.com/forum/faq.php

Please direct all questions to the forum administrator, Ben Sobieck, at Ben.Sobieck@fwmedia.com.

I don't understand your posting clock times by the post dates. I just posted something and it said the time as 9: something P.M. when in reallity it was 4:30 P.M. Explain please.

You might try going to the control panel & setting your time zone. I had to do that with mine. It is in board preferences; global settings.

See if that helps.

What about opening up images at past posts? I have tried several and get nothing.

Maybe I spoke too soon. Can't open up past posts pics. I click on the red X and still get nothing.

Hi Ben,

How do I start a Connecticut or Rhode Island "section" ? There's not either one currently on the forum area.

Thanks
