It seems to be on-again-off-again. I didn't see your avatar in a thread just a moment ago, but lo and behold, it is showing here…for now.

Um, it says a post of mine has been moved to It's Your BBB!, but then when I click it says I don't have permission to view the thread…

Oh, and parlance's avatar is on and off again

I've had that happen to me, too. I just go back to that thread after a few minutes and it lets me in. @IveJustSeenAFaceo

@Ahhh Girl You seem to have misunderstood me. I can't find the thread while searching. Anyway I could get a link? Or even just if you posted there so I could see it on the New posts list.

I didn't get an email notification for some PMs I got today. This is a problem, because the PM number won't go to 0, so I ignored the fact that I had 6 PMs. I only noticed because I was trying to go to my profile to edit my signature and I accidentally clicked PMs.

EDIT: I got the notification for the last PM I got, about 5 minutes ago.,

I set my birthday up as the 22nd March 2013 (see here, there is a few posts above giving the background) to see when it would appear on the Members Birthday list below since there have been problems with it coming up late, one idea was that the time zone set by those experiencing the issue was not to London. As you can see below my timezone is to london and yet the birthday thing is a day out so we can now rule that out. Might be a bug or one of the forum settings is set wrong.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I'm getting some, but not all.

Which is really hard when put together with the fact that the PM number isn't right.

I did some messing around with server timezones (TZ), and have changed it from London to UTC (co-ordinated universal time). I wondered if there was a conflict between my site's TZ being set to UK time while my server is in the US. I'm not sure if people's personal TZs (in their forum profiles) would make an added difference but having three different values might have caused confusion. I also disabled and re-enabled the birthdays plugin for good measure.

I changed my profile to have my birthday on today's date, and it showed up. So I hope it's fixed.

Now, before others go in to test theirs by choosing today's date, be aware that the server runs a script at the start of each day to determine whose birthday it is today or in the near future. So if you change your profile it might not show up immediately (or at all if you choose this day). Restarting the plugin made it appear in my case.

A reminder: to set your birthday go here, then look for the Edit Profile button.

I also restarted the PM plugin but I don't know if that'd fix it. I'm still in the dark about that. Really sorry everyone.

WARNING! Something strange is going on. Multiple accounts have been created placing "Not" in front of forum members names, including mine. It is nothing to do with me, or I should think, Von Bontee, paulsbass, meanmistermustard, or Satan Himself. Should ANY post appear with "Not" in front of the username I would suggest no reaction to them, and to definitely not click on ANY link they contain.

Joe and mods have been informed.

Any post or links posted by Notmeanmistermustard is not in any way endorsed by me or to be associated with me. I have nothing to do with the person behind it. 

As Ron said do not open any links posted by those accounts and it is best to not reply. Avoid, ignore and let the mods deal with it.

Ew, whoever is doing this is using each person's avatar but turning into the negative. All of those accounts have 0 posts.

I thought about posting the offending avatars here, but they are a bit disturbing. If you want to see them, click on the members button at the top and use this as your search"

not%

The notAnnaDog40 account doesn't have her picture. It is just the default forum picture.

There are some legit accounts there. You'll know the difference.

Might be the case that whoever opened the accounts is waiting until its quiet but strange to open so many accounts and then do nothing except reverse the avatars. Weird.

They came to the wrong place. We have too many observant people on this forum. We rock!
