    The site does not seems to be "remembering" that I've read certain threads. I log on, have a look, confirm the threads as read and then go away. I come back 10 mins later (yeah I'm obsessed that way) and posts are marked as unread again.
    This ahppening to anyone else?

        Well, as Ranger has commented, I seem to live here so, yes, I've seen the same thing for some time now. It seems that if I spend a little time on that thread, the program recognizes that I've read the thread but when I flash in and out, it doesn't have time. It doesn't bother me overmuch and if it does, I just hit the 'Mark all posts as read' link.

          Early years missing posts?

          I am just wondering about the "blank spots" as far as JMS posts back in the early 90's. I'm really enjoying reading all about the pre-production days on The Gathering, but there must be a bunch of missing posts from July and October of 1992 and a bunch of early 1993. I haven't found any info on these "missing posts" in the FAQ. Are all of those posts gone forever?

            Thanks for reminding me. I actually have many of those messages and need to get them imported into the archive. A user named David Strauss sent me his personal archive (thanks!) awhile back which included those date ranges. What I need to do is write a program to parse the files and import the messages into the JMSNews database.

            In the meantime, I did a rough cut/paste of those date ranges into the below text file. It looks like about 200 messages:

            JMS Genie Posts

            It's possible that there are other missing GENIE messages sprinkled throughout David's files. I'll need to sort through it and identify if any are new.

                  First time I have ready any of the Archives and am finding them interesting. I guess I will have to start at the beginning and read them all. Maybe a good time would be in the fall or winter as it is 100 degrees in my place. Thanks Doug.

                    I read them all when I was on a three-month out of town assignment for a new job a while back. Some of them are confusing if there's no quote about what JMS is replying to but there's some good stuff in there.

                      Yes, you can usually figure out what he is referring too, but not always. Right now I am reading the posts during the pre-production period on the series and am slowly making my way through them all. I am thinking about watching an episode and then reading the reaction posts when I get to the point that B5 is "on the air." I think that will work almost like getting a JMS commentary track for every episode.

                        Just to make sure...are you familiar with the Lurker's Guide? Many of JMS's post regarding specific episodes have been sorted there. It's a *great* resource!

                          I have visited the Lurkers Guide "way back when", but I was not aware that they had JMS remarks for each episode. That could be very handy indeed!

                          Thanks Jan

                            Avatar Troubles

                            I have been trying to change my avatar and having a hell of a time.

                            First I did a redirect URL to Photobucket

                            the file was too large

                            So, I sized it down to 100pixels at it's largest.

                            Then it was not a valid JPEG, GIF, or PNG file.

                            I tried sizing it smaller. Now it is tiny and I still can't load it up. I've tried saving it four different ways now and none seem to work. Any suggestions?

                            Here are the attempts:
                            1st

                            2nd

                            3rd

                            Last


                            Any smaller and the image will not be visible. How is it that some users are able to save such large avatars? Is that some sort of bonus privlidge for people who have been posting here a while? Or maybe I just have avatar envy

                              Hmm,

                              Don't know what the problem is ... it worked for me. THe CP says that the max size is 100 x 100 pixels, and/or 19.5KB.

                              I would guess the first one is just too big. The others, I don't know. As you can see I saved the fourth version from your post and uploaded it as my own avatar without any problems.
