      Hello!

      For those who may not know, JWFan relies entirely on donations to keep running.  Donations pay for our server bills, as well as keeping our domain and Invision Powerboard fees.
      As an incentive to donate, I am offering a series of free CDS to anyone who donates over a certain amount!   Last time this was a modest success, where I raised $500 of our desired $1,000 and mailed out 3 free CDs to lucky JWFanners.  This time I'll be doing the raffling a littler different!   Our goal is $1000 once again, and I will have four tiers of free CDs you can win once again.  But this time, the more you donate, the more entries into each raffle you'll get!   Each $10 you donate gets your name put into the raffle mug once for the $10 pool, twice for the $20 pool, thrice for the $30 pool, and five times into the $50 pool.  Here is the list of CDs you can win - and I have more to add at a later time when I get a little more organized (I'll post what they are by Friday at the latest)   The $10 pool (Every $10 you donate gets you one ticket into this pool) - will be drawn as soon as we hit $250 donated Tyler Bates - God of War; Ascension (OST, La La Land Records) Danny Elfman - Planet of the Apes (OST, Sony) Danny Elfman - Taking Woodstock (OST, La La Land Records) Christopher Lennertz - Identity Thief (OST, La La Land Records) Christopher Lennertz - Medal of Honor: Rising Sun (OST) Michael Giacchino - Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (OST, Varese Sarabande) Dave Holmes & Various - Ocean's 11 (OST, WB Records) Joel McNeely & Various - Hollywood '94 (Varese Sarabande) Joe Kraemer - Jack Reacher (OST, La La Land Records) John Williams - Born on the Fourth of July (OST, MCA Records)   The $20 pool (Every $10 you donate gets you two ticket into this pool, must donate at least $20 to be eligible) - will be drawn as soon as we hit $500 donated John Barry - First Love (La La Land) Jerry Goldsmith - The Challenge (La La Land) Jerry Goldsmith - In Harm's Way (2009 Intrada edition) Jerry Goldsmith - The Red Pony (Varese) Alan Silvestri - Dutch (La La Land) Shirley Walker - Willard (La La Land) John Williams - Family Plot (Varese Sarabande) or, any of the above CDs if you prefer   The $30 pool (Every $10 you donate gets you three ticket into this pool, must donate at least $30 to be eligible) - will be drawn as soon as we hit $750 donated James Horner - Gorky Park (OOP Kritzerland Edition) James Newton Howard - Outbreak (2CD, Varese Deluxe Edition) Laurence Rosenthal - Clash of the Titans (2CD, Intrada) John Williams - The Fury (2CD, La La Land) John Williams - Jane Eyre (OOP, La La Land) or, any of the above CDs if you prefer   The $50 pool (Every $10 you donate gets you five ticket into this pool, must donate at least $50 to be eligible) - will be drawn as soon as we hit $1,000 donated Jerry Fielding - The Wild Bunch (3CD, FSM) Ira Newborn - The Naked Gun trilogy (3CD, La La Land) Shirley Walker and Various - Batman: The Animated Series Volume 3 (4CD, La La Land) or, any of the above CDs if you prefer     All shipping will be paid by me to anywhere in the world!   I will pull names from a hat for each pool, and you get to pick whatever CD set you want if I pull your name!   To be eligible, leave your JWFan username in the comments area of your donation.  If you want to donate but not be in the running for a free CD, mention that in the comment.   Use this link or the link on the mainpage.       Thank you!   Jason, Ricard, and Andreas.

Everything feels fast and noticeably more responsive on my phone. Fingers crossed! Many thanks Andreas. 

 

I see on Android, embedded YouTube videos still can't be removed from quoted posts without first going into 'Source' mode and deleting the lengthy code there, but I can't have it all my way I suppose.

Twice now after posting a reply via the mobile browser has the post i submitted staying in the reply window 

 

That kind of thing happened to me all the time before the change. I don't think it's a new issue (although I suppose it could be).

It has frequently happened to me ever since the major update happened months ago that prevented this site from working with Tapatalk. I can write a post but not send it, and when I return to the thread, it's still in the reply box. Or I can send a reply, navigate away, and return to find it still there as if I had not sent it. It's also slightly annoying if I want to quote multiple sources; the first quote prevents others from being attached. Source, select all, delete. I'm used to the workaround.

Sigh. I said Tapatalk stopped working. I do not care if it is renabled because I have gotten used to its absence. If anything, it's now one less app to have installed on my 2.5 year old phone.

This Website Does Have A Glitch With regard To SwiftKey On my Android Sometimes. It Treats Each Letter As A New Word, making Autocorrect Useless. I cannot Even Select Words In The Predict Boxes, I just Get The Letters.  It Is Happening Right Now, hence just About Every Word Autocapitalizes.  the Only Workaround Is To Close THe Chrome app And reload It. I have NOt Experienced It On Facebook Or Using BlueMail. 

 

 

 

 

Now it's back to normal after restarting Chrome.

Any update from the IPBOARD developers about the persistent and incredibly irritating quotation quirks? Like how beginning a new post in some other thread two days since your last post automatically pastes some dude's quote into the field in a way which is completely irrelevant but which the forum software is convinced you still need?

Yeah that's what I often have to do too. Not sure if the update fixed it.

 

Not a major problem IMO, though.

This doesn't seem to have been brought up, so I'm just letting you know my e-mail notifications don't work anymore.

 

Reach the mail limit (more then 200 mails/hour) set it to 250.

Is the search engine completely broken now? It can't seem to find anything. No hits, no matter what you type in. I even typed in "John Williams", but no hits.

 

[Edit: Nevermind. I realized you first have to click the 'looking glass' icon, and THEN search. Searching from the space in the upper right corner gives you nothing, nor the search engine you're taken to once you do.]

Working fine for me.  Make sure you select "All Content" or "Topics" (which really should say "Forums") from the dropdown, instead of leaving it set to "This Topic".

Whenever people post links to things like twitter, then a blue box appears and just keeps growing and scrolling my screen down automatically. I can't read anything any more because it keeps scrolling my phone screen down faster and faster.

There's nothing wrong with avatars, other than the fact that you don't have one.  In my case, it was just a crappy resolution picture to start with

When you upload a new avatar image, you get to choose which square section of it to be your avatar.  It saves a 240x240 version of that square as your avatar, and displays that image as a 150x150 square under your screen name.  It doesn't downgrade anything.


What Quint could be thinking of is when Andreas changed us from IPBoard 3 to IPBoard 4, the board resampled everyone's existing avatars and a bunch ending up looking like crap, but if you go out and pick a new avatar it doesn't do anything to it.
