Bugs And Enhancements

I started one of these threads on the Equinoxforum.net forum. The admins over there were pretty good at making the corrections and updates, or explaining why the idea couldn't be implemented (or when it would appear):

1.) The "Edit Your Post" time is too short: Right now, it appears to be set to 10 mins. What's the argument for limiting it to that short a time? 10 minutes is enough to re-read a post and correct typos, yes - but sometimes things occur to you much later than that. You shouldn't have to create another post to correct your previous post. It's more concise and efficient just to update your original post. I'd change it to 24 hours.

Gotta update that edit Time window. When replying on a phone using “Enhanced Mode”, you can’t easily see the post you’re replying to. I was just doing this, piecemeal, repeatedly editing my reply after reviewing the post I was replying to. After two edits (5-10 minutes), I was locked out! And sure, I can start another post, but that’s sloppy. Just bump that timeout to 24 hours. There’s no harm in that, and other forums use 24 hours, too.

2.) “Congratulations” Virus/Trojan Pop-Up:

Was reading through the very long TEHCM thread :

https://www.acadiaforum.net/24-engin...#/topics/13888

... and had this various forms of this annoying virus/Trojan “Congratulations” pop-up appear *at least* a dozen times!!!

Had something very similar happening on the Equinox/Terrain forum, sent them a similar message, and they managed to put blocks in place to stop it.

Appears to be a problem your internet service provider should solve. Someone must be attacking their network. Had something similar happen on a computer which never touches this forum - different provider and pop-up. Took a system reset of computer to an earlier time and reboot of modem to keep it from happening again.

+1, I don't think that is a forum issue but an issue between the user and their provider.

I'm on forums quite often and never encountered such an issue.

The giveaway is pictures posted of the same (or similar) popup on different websites.

It only happens on my iPhone running Safari in “Enhanced Mobile” mode. Never see it on my laptop or desktop machines running either Chrome or Firefox.

Was advised to “clear website history” and cache on my phone, but that didn’t stop it. Equinox/Terrain forum admins asked me to send them the fraudulent links in the pop-ups and they put in some kind of blocks to stop it.

Then, send a PM to "admin2" of this forum. The original "admin" won't respond since he is no longer part of the forum. I'd help, but it's beyond my permissions.

PM sent. On the Equinox/Terrain forum the admins read and respond to this thread. That way everyone can transparently see what’s going on with the forum - whether it be a problem or a new idea

That's nice. This forum might have a different staff working on it. Try the 'mention' option when you post a problem - address the site's admin using the @ symbol before their screen name. It could get you a quicker response.
