  1. Looking at FM Transmitters

    Start here:
  2. Ignore Functionality

    A quick history in the Ignore Feature that has been talked about the past few days, and what it actually does. What seems like 1049 days ago, someone started a thread that quickly went 'viral' on the forum. People were somewhat annoyed by constantly seeing it in their 'recent' activity. After some back and forth functionality was added to the forum to ignore individual threads. This functionality is different than the user ignore feature built into the software. It was never designed, nor never used for, ignoring entire forums. There are features that are standard to the forums that will allow you to filter those would of your recent activity feeds. The ignore thread functionality is active in The Coffee Shop and Sequence Sharing. There are no plans to expand it's use to other forums. If you don't see an 'Ignore' button when are viewing a thread, then please let me know via PM.
  3. Two Factor Authentication

    I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this, but I'm going to put it out there for everyone. The forum software now has the ability to add two factor authentication (TFA) to the login process. If you don't know what TFA is, then go look it up. For those who do know what it is, or those who researched it, a question for you. Shall it be optional or required? I'm betting the majority is going to go with optional, but I thought I'd put it out the for people to choose. Poll open until 8/9.

  8. The Busy Season Is Approaching

    Hello Newbies! Welcome to the Light-O-Rama forums. As you no doubt have learned by now there are many experienced people here willing and able to assist you with your Light-O-Rama questions (and more.) However, as time marches toward late November, when most Christmas displays go live, their time will become scarce as they work on their own display. Have a question? Go ahead and ask! However if a response takes a little longer than you think it should please keep in mind that nobody here gets paid. Someone will get an answer to you just as soon as they can.

  11. New look?

    My user account sees it there as well. Will have to look into it later.
  12. New look?

    Your account is in the same user group as my "user" account .. and I see it on that account. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ilhh1og1t2axorw/lor-forums-ingore-button.PNG?dl=0
  13. New look?

    Any settings that were there should still be there. No changes would have (should have) been made, just the software upgrade. (Along with whatever new things it threw in there.)
  14. New look?

    Yep.. Upgrades will do that. There is a "Dismiss" option up on the profile. Will look at the admin side later today..
  15. New look?

    Field updated.
  16. No word on S5 yet??

    I'm going to lock this thread for 24-48 hours. Please keep discussions about S5 in the Open Beta General Comments section. This will help the developers find everything in one place.
  17. Separate S5 thread

    I think it'll be best to leave all S5 comments here in the Open Beta for a little while longer. That will make it easier on the programmers to locate information about the Beta, and respond.
  18. CTB16PC's for sale

    FYI: Items for sale do not go in General LOR Questions. This thread has been moved to The Coffee Shop. Everyone is asked to please place your messages in the most appropriate forum.
  19. This thread is very, very, old. You might want to check with the original poster.
  20. LOR Facebook Page

    Some people like Facebook, others don't. Just because the FB page at http://www.facebook.com/lightorama is legitimate, doesn't mean one has to visit it. If your not a fan of Facebook, don't worry about it. Your forum admin doesn't know why the forums were down. Could have been technical, could have been billing, or just the simple fact something broke and it took a bit to fix. Either way, apologies for the outage, and the inconvenience folks may have encountered.
  21. Admins Forum Issues

    No idea what happened. The logs don't show any activity from an admin/moderator standpoint. And 4 hours is indeed past the time that edits are (currently) configured for. Nothing unusual there.
  22. Admins Forum Issues

    Looking at the logs, doesn't appear that anyone has removed any posts. Nor does it appear the edit functionality has been changed.
  23. "Edit" Button Gone

    I just saw this post. Mike has a million things to do, and doesn't always know the exact things going on the background. That isn't a slam/put down/smack down or anything else negative toward him. If you take it as such .. then check your ego at the door, please. The edit functions do vary on the forum based on the behaviors of the members. Admins can see all edits made. If we see that people are changing their posts in attempts to 'frame' other people into looking bad .. then we reduce the edit times to mitigate the issue. Time is allotted for corrections to be made to posts. However, the ability to 'Update' a posts hours/days/weeks/months later will require the assistance of an Admin. Sucks, yes. Not fun, I know. Anything else negative you can think of ... I know. However, there are some people (and I'm not suggesting anyone here) who will change things days/weeks later. In order to keep that from happening, edits are limited.
  24. Summer Sale

    I have a hunch that the official LOR Facebook page will be updated with Sales information when it comes out as well. http://www.facebook.com/lightorama
