The all new: Ask a moderator about the forum & rules

Recommended Posts

Yeah I've probably reported it over a dozen times. Why don't the admins just prohibit chinese characters to stop the spam?

Whats the dealio with the super frequent spammer advertising his totally legitimate university degrees?

 

I'm confused as to how this lad is able to continue, surely an additional registration step is not too crazy of a fix?

 

I can appreciate your concern BIS IT are working towards a resolution for the spam related issue

I have a suggestion for a useful feature to be implented on the forum. At the bottom where all the active users are shown, it would be useful to highlight all the moderators that are online.

That is a good idea-although there is a tab to the left showing all the moderators, many of them are not online and have not been in some time. A small section showing who is currently online would be handy I think.

How do people get their pictures in posts to show up so big in the forums, for example the photography thread?  I'm guessing that the 100kb rule is still in effect?  Is there a trick to minimizing file size and increasing size?

100kb rule no longer applies. The days of forum members browsing the forum using dial modems has long since passed. As the original forum rules were made when OFP was released.

How do I clear my notifications?

In the old forums it was possible to delete them. Doesn't seem to be an option with this new system.

I'm assuming the 'report post' button goes away once someone else has reported a particular post?

I tried to report a spammy post just now (it's since been deleted) and couldn't for the life of me find the report post button.

Happens automatically when you advance to the next rank AFAIK which I am guessing you reached at 8250.

Please can I have my old profile merged?

I'm not 100% sure but I believe my old username is:

Mark_XIII

Minus the (DayZ) thingy. I'm not sure what my rank would have been.

EDIT:

 

I just looked at a super old thread I started and my name is listed as:

mark xiii

no caps, dunno if that helps but thanks for the help, mucho appreciated!

I've alerted the Community Manager to the request.

Is it intended that we can no longer create or reply to threads in Arma 3 - News as we could before?

This should now be resolved. Looks like it was a setting for another section that was accidentally applied during a maintenance to the Arma 3 News sub-forum.

Morning chaps,

 

Any idea why I can't create a thread in the

 

https://forums.bistudio.com/forums/forum/58-bohemia-interactive-general/

 

or the

 

https://forums.bistudio.com/forums/forum/126-bohemia-interactive-web-pages/

 

forums?

 

*edit* I can reply to threads there, but not start a new one.

Not sure, likely due to global/section forum permissions. I will alert the community manager.

Seen some very questionable topic pop up in general tank. Totally outside of Arma or gaming in general and illegal .  Might be a lock down.
