you type @user name at the top of or in the middle of a post and their name pops up (like facebook). And they get a special indication someone has tagged them in a post.

They moved crownvic.net from their server to a Google server, and switched to https at the same time. They killed a few dozen forums in the process.

Believe it or not, the footer still says "Copyright 2000-2015 by Crownvic.net and Steve Spaulding. All Rights Reserved." after three years. I guess they can't figure out the "footer.php" file that is external to UBB.threads.

At least they have a good user interface that seems to work. I registered one new domain, a .net, and that was $16.95 plus $3 for the ID protection.

It is going to take a while to get over the $495, between the fact that I have Christmas presents to buy, and that I am not working. I am planning to take my "downtime" to get something going with a couple of sites. My no-compete (from selling my big site) has just ended. so I am now free to do whatever the Hell I want.

... What did they attempt to convert?

There isn't really a need for id protect anymore; the GDPR affected whois data, so registry inquiries are starting to end up looking like this or this.

Jesus, Steve!
I don't know how many domains were involved but protected ID cost more per domain.
That is a lot of dollars.

But feel free to vent 20 more Times.

I WOULD HAVE BEEN LIVID ABOUT THE COST .

After paying good money up front with what you thought was a viable host..

I never paid much attention to renewing domains other than click yes and update the credit card.
But in the future I will look a lot closer.

No, you are absolutely correct. thumbsup
It previously did say that. But that message was confusing to users who were familiar with every other forum software currently out there. So the wording on the button was updated. The feature continues to function as it did before.

Any participation you had in the Private Topic before you removed yourself from it, will remain intact with that Private Topic. The only difference is that you've removed yourself from further participation. This is why the "[User] has removed themself from this conversation." is important. It tells all remaining participants that you stopped being involved with the Private Topic at that point.

If "participant A" removes themselves from the Private Topic with "participant B" and "participant C," then only B and C can see it. This is because now its only attached to just the B and C accounts.

"Delete" means that you are deleting your participation in that Private Topic.
It does not mean that you are actually deleting the Private Topic from the forum software.

If all participants (A, B, and C) deleted themselves from the Private Topic, the forum software deletes the Private Topic because its no longer attached to any more participant accounts.

The Private Topic listing is a list of all the Private Topics you are currently listed as participating in.

So, there is no way to drop out of a Private Message conversation and still see it on the Private Message's list,
and still read it.

If you delete the Private Message the software auto generates a post in the PM thread that says ("User" has removed themself from this conversation) Correct ?

If all participants delete, the thread disappears. Correct

I believe what you are looking for is the "Delete" button.

This will permanently remove you from the conversation and you will no longer be able to access it. Delete this conversation from your Private Messages?

In the Private Message section, I seem to not see the button that does the below.

("User" has removed themself from this conversation)

I thought there was a button, to click on, that removes you from the Private Message conversation.
Am I missing something.

I'm glad that you got it all situated; wish that it would have been a better resolution though.

eNom is just a reseller, their chief competition back in the day was Tucows, but one of the two bought out the other at one point. Their bread and butter is pretty much letting companies offer their own registry services with them as the back end (even offering an API to keep everything on ones own servers).

The deed is done. By the time I finished today, I had spent close to $600 out of pocket, between the move itself, the five renewals I needed to do for December, and ID protection. This is for essentially inactive domains that I'm not making a dime off of.

I did get them to agree to move the domains to James, but in the eleventh hour, when I was about to lose some of them, I elected to leave them with their reseller. I was a broken man. Enom owns so many companies, you can't keep them straight.

I still have a paypal dispute pending with Mindraven, but it is just a small pittance compared to the rest. The parent company of Mindraven seems to have gone away, too.

I know that others were affected by this, but I don't know how many domains are involved. I wish there was some way that people could protect themselves against this sort of hostage situation, but I don't know how I could have handled it differently.

Thanks for letting me vent.

That sucks!
I can't believe that they want to charge $495 to move the domain to another registrar..When the original one is extinct.

Somebody needs to help this person..

As gizmo stated it is a permission. in the site section.
Can see extra user info

Usually it is hardcoded for admins. But can be turned on or off for other groups.
Since your prior posts indicated that some permissions got hosed by using a default template, Then possibly you need to review the site permissions per group again.

That's unfortunate that they won't allow you to just move to another reseller... Any way to ask to escalate the issue to someone higher up?

I'd think it wouldn't be that difficult to just push the domains from one reseller account (MindRaven) to my reseller account (vncweb), since they're both from the same registry retailer...

I just got the word - There is a flat-rate charge of $495 to rescue my domains from Mindraven. Enom is holding me hostage. This is absolutely ridiculous. They don't respond to me, don't respond to Enom, and don't reply to Paypal. And I am being penalized for it.

Unless the user group has the site permission "Can see extra user info" they cannot, in fact, see any IP addresses. There is no way to disable the display, short of hacking out code; but that shouldn't really be an issue if you only set this permission for your admin or gm group.

Is there a way to disable the display of IP addresses in Who's Online? If you click on Who's Online Now?, you get a display of users. Under the display name, the member's IP address appears. I've been poking around in the Control Panel, but I don't see a place to disable the display of IP addresses. (We want the rest to appear.)

UPDATE:

Enom is currently trying to figure out how to disperse the Mindraven domains. I suggested where mine should go, but they aren't sure if they can do that. Meanwhile, I came to realize that a new domain that I registered with Mindraven in October was never actually registered, so I filed a Paypal dispute on that one. Maybe that will wake them up.

My first two expire on the 5th, so I hope something is resolved by then.

Thanks. It looks like a standard template got applied to that forum at some point. I had to correct quite a few permissions in that forum. It's fixed now. Thanks for the pointers.
