Unable to upload photos

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 15:15:23 GMT

For at least the last year or so, I've been unable to upload photos directly to 1BC. I used to be able to click the little 'Insert Image' button and it would upload to the 1BC uploads section.

I used to have difficulty uploading using Firefox, but was always able to using IE. This last year, I thought something changed on the site settings, but apparently the others can upload fine the old way.

Can someone please take a look?

When I try to upload using Firefox:

When I try to upload using Internet Explorer:

Hopefully there's still some sys admins coming around... :P

Personal Video Files

Sun, 28 Aug 2011 11:04:32 GMT

Anybody have any clues as to how you can get short video files from my computer uploaded to 1BC without having to post to Youtube or other third party first?

1bc system emails not going out

Wed, 13 Jul 2011 08:48:03 GMT

Hi everyone,

I'm noticing that I'm not receiving emails for private messages or topic subscriptions anymore, but I have not changed my settings.

Before I dig deeper, is anyone else experiencing this?


Needing to login multiple times?

Sun, 17 Sep 2006 16:33:10 GMT

Not so much a problem than an annoyance.

Seems I need to relog on to the boards every once in awhile for no reason.

I'll be reading a post, then I'll go to another post and the board tells me I need to login. Problem is I'm already logged in.

I have the board settings to remember (auto-login) me when I access; so I shouldn't have to login at all.

Just thought I would bring it to your attention.

Recent Posts Function Not Functioning

Tue, 18 May 2010 13:27:33 GMT

Please note, this thing is not working.

I noticed it probably last week, but neglected to mention. It has not been reflecting updates to the Science and Technology thread. Now it is not reflecting the most recent updates to the Politics and Religion Thread. The Comedy in P&R Thread is not being posted when I click on most recent updates.

Please Fix This.


(Funny That. This one DOES show up in the Recent Posts search. Go figure).

Sticky Wicket

Thu, 31 Dec 2009 07:12:48 GMT

For the last month or so, inorder to to enjoy 1bc without technical issues I have been running my IE 8, in Compatibility Mode. It is said that websites designed for older browsers require this. I'm assuming this is the case here. Pages and post replies sit there after after clicking "Post" and clicking on pages. Even in CM I often have to back page or refresh to get out of the trap. I'm wondering if a new cookie is being used here that is causing the sticky situation. I do have a stand alone program to deal with intusive cookies, and at times if I use it to delete the cookie(s) here, things return to normal for awhile. Anybody else noticing problems? Hopefully 1bc has not been hijacked.

Link format

Thu, 28 May 2009 20:57:05 GMT

I'm trying to figure out using the 'Link' function how to make it a small 'Click Here' for a link. I can never get the quotes in the right spot. Will someone enlighten me? Thanks!

attaching bts saves to posts

Mon, 08 Oct 2007 08:05:50 GMT

Hello Sean,

It would be convinient if we could attach BTS saves to our posts. Right now the only way to attach it is by zipping the file and attach the .zip. Please note the BTS saves have a different extension compared to general civ4 saves.:)

P & R Thread

Sat, 15 Nov 2008 12:52:29 GMT

[quote]This forum requires special permission to post or reply. If you would like posting privileges in this forum, you must read the "Attention" thread pinned below for rules and instructions.[/quote]

Well.. that's all great, but there's not topic stickied.. 'Attention' or not.

I kicked Cleo a note asking about it, but I thought if there was a Mod not listed that could take care of that, that I'd just post it on the site.

I'd like access to reply if one wouldn't mind. :P

From the Beginning

Fri, 07 Nov 2008 12:44:07 GMT

So.. I tried to view ALL the topics in various areas and clicking on 'From the Beginning' was hinky.

One time it worked, but other times, it switched back to '3 days'. Other times, it told me there were no topics but there were. Can't tell you specifics, because I was toying with it all over.

Avatar update error

Tue, 03 Feb 2009 16:45:43 GMT

I wanted a parody avatar of another member's avatar, and did this recently, but now want to change it. I've tried several times to change my avatar and cannot. I receive the following error:
[quote]Sorry the application encountered an unexpected error. Information about this error has been logged. If you continue to receive this message please contact the board administrator.[/quote]I've tried this both by uploading one and also by pointing it to an external URL. I waited a few hours and tried again, but received the same error.

Is there a minimum time between avatar changes or anything like that, or is this a website problem?

Search / Recent Posts

Sun, 18 Jan 2009 08:41:36 GMT

Recently, (last two days) with FireFox, I can't seem to get the little script windows to pop-up for search or Recent Posts.

Anyone else? Or, have I developed a problem on my end?

Quick question

Mon, 01 Dec 2008 12:15:03 GMT

When does a topic become a 'hot topic' and the folder goes red?

Signout on thread change

Mon, 25 Aug 2008 14:08:38 GMT

Ok.. here's what's going on...

Sometimes after I login, I'll go to click a thread and it'll have me signed out and ask me to login again.

It PROBABLY has something to do with cookie management (as it usually is), but WHAT?


Is there a prob with notification?

Wed, 09 Jul 2008 10:53:35 GMT

I am subscribed to get email notification on a couple of threads and boards. In the past hours I have noticed updates, but did not receive the regular mail notification. Is there an interruption in the service?

Permitted file upload extensions

Sun, 11 May 2008 07:19:17 GMT

I'd like to request (even if it doesn't do any good :P ) for the board to change its permitted file extensions when uploading to include "CivBeyondSwordSave" extensions. It looks like the regular Civ IV extension is permitted, but not the BTS one.

Yeah, yeah, we can do a work-around by .zipping the file and uploading it, but on a Civ site, it'd be nice to upload a BTS save.

My 2 cents. :)

I'm Not Here!

Tue, 29 Apr 2008 11:12:43 GMT

Okay, I've tried to log out over thirty times in the last 5 minutes. It is refusing to let me out. So if your seeing my handle at the bottom of the homepage, you should know I just gave up asking and left.:doze:

Cannot post in P&L section

Sat, 01 Mar 2008 13:53:12 GMT

Why cannot I post there? I meant to say "P&R"


Thu, 17 Jan 2008 14:44:33 GMT

Am I the only one getting this wierd error?

Server error

Anyone else getting this message:


Posting pictures

Thu, 27 Sep 2007 11:46:39 GMT

I noticed that in the last few days we can no longer post our own photos to 1BC and instead must point towards external links. Is this permanent?

It is nice to post screen shots and of course, the occassional joke, but I don't believe anyone has gone hog-wild with posting photos, so I wonder why this was done.

Just curious. :)

Where'd it go?

Mon, 17 Sep 2007 15:04:42 GMT

Am I the only one who can't see the Dgame forum anymore? Has the discussion been moved somewhere else? Does that somewhere else require special permission? Have I been left out?

What's going on?

Quick quesiton bout forum stat/rank thingy lol

Fri, 01 Dec 2006 17:26:13 GMT

It says I'm an elite warlord. Just wanna know what the levels are and how many posts you need to reach each rank lol. There are two levels - member group and user level - what is each and what are the ranks and groups lol?

P.S. - I remember back in the day there was a post about this and tried searching for it, but couldn't find it. :P:D

Temp ban

Fri, 10 Nov 2006 16:50:36 GMT

I have a test to pass on the 17th of this month. I was wondering if I can ask for a temp ban of myself? It would be from the 13th-17th (ending at 12:00PM est) to guarantee I don't waste precious study time here.

Thx in advance.

A really annoying error

Sat, 11 Nov 2006 00:25:07 GMT

So I type in this huge post with a few quote tags and I get this message:

(image) The following error occurred...

Then I take out all the quotes and I still get the message. Then I copy it, close out of IE and start it up again and I paste it back in the same reply box and I get the same freakin' message. Then I just type in "blah" and I still get the same message. Then I go to a different forum and I have no problems. When I go back to the problem reply page, I get the same message if I paste but if I type the whole message out, it lets it go through. What the ***? Anyone else have this problem. It's not the first time for me.

member spamming me

Sun, 22 Oct 2006 07:07:03 GMT

How can I see who is sending me mail through 1bc?

I received this SPAM mail that was sent to me through 1bc. I can see the sender's email adress, but I know of no way to connect that mail to a member's name.

What does this mean?

Sun, 10 Sep 2006 00:10:15 GMT

I was looking through a thread in the archives section, and there was one thread started by "anonymous". And they had 0 posts and 0 visits? Why is this. Below my signature is a screenshot of it.

How does the site count visits?

Fri, 08 Sep 2006 18:12:38 GMT

What qualifies as a "visit" to the site? Do I have to log in, or if I go to a different website then come back here is that an additional visit?

Just wondering...

Site slow

Sun, 27 Aug 2006 04:38:03 GMT

What is happening with the site? In the last 24 hours or so it behaves desastrously slow.....

Attachment Problems

Thu, 06 Jul 2006 10:08:55 GMT

Recently I've noticed an occasional problem with the attachment mechanism. It has mainly come to light for me since I have to attach more files since working on the C3C GOTMS.

I find that I have to make numerous attempts before the file will attach successfully. This is even for "small" files (<200KB).

I have no problem uploading files to other sites, or using FTP, it just seems to be here.

Are there any problems? Anyone else noticed this?



Server Error in '/' Application

Tue, 15 Aug 2006 10:12:45 GMT

I've been getting quite a few generic .NET error pages when accessing the site tonight, the ones that always say:

[quote]Server Error in '/' Application.[/quote]

Anything going on? Server maintenance?

(Sorry just curious)

Moderaters in moderation?

Thu, 17 Aug 2006 04:22:47 GMT

I have seen 2 moderators around here. Where are the others? Whats their purpose? I think cleopatra and zone are moderators right? So what exactly do you moderate? Just curious . Well and its 4 a.m and im about to go to sleep.

Question aout quoting on 1BC

Wed, 02 Aug 2006 13:53:38 GMT

Why is it that sometimes when I click "quote" the quote shows up in my post nicely in white and other times it just has the quote tags visible, but nothing to distinnguish it as a quote? I've noticed it's not just me, others have this as well.

Spellcheck Problems?

Thu, 29 Jun 2006 19:09:01 GMT

Sometimes when I use the spell check I'll get errors where when I substitue a uncorrectly spelled word with its correct form, I end up with the spell check completely merging words and etc.

While very minor its made me have to edit a few of my posts. I just thought I would bring this up.

Also, has this happened to anyone else?

Greenwich Mean Time

Sun, 02 Apr 2006 03:29:59 GMT

Hey Sean,

This weekend we (Sydney) has just changed our time zone back 1 hour due to end of daylight savings (we're going into Autumn/Winter).

I've noticed that the GMT calculations appear off. We are now on GMT+10, but I have had to set my settings to GMT+9 for everything to work.

Then I thought I'd check what happened if I set to London Time (GMT). That seemed to work correctly when I tried. Note that London is actually now in BST (GMT+1) due to daylight savings changes.

I am not sure if the daylight savings check is working as expected. I also noted you have to update the forum settings page twice to get the correct timezone and "Time now" for what you have set.

Without further investigation I'm not sure if there is a consistent issue, but just something I thought I'd raise. For now I've fiddled with the settings until I show the correct time, even if it says I'm in Japan's time zone! ;)



Searches and RSS

Wed, 01 Mar 2006 10:40:44 GMT

Ok, after several attempts I either need help or this is a whine.

whenever I search on the new boards I get back several pages of RSS junk that I need to search through to find the post I am looking for. Is there a way around this or are we just stuck with this RSS garbage?

Perhaps RSS could be manually deleted or added to searches?

Tracking Posts / Responses

Tue, 03 Jan 2006 08:38:06 GMT

A while back before this site was updated, I remember an option where you could quickly access the topics / threads that you started or replied to.

I can't seem to locate this option anymore. Does it still exist?

I can't send personal messages anymore

Fri, 18 Nov 2005 07:49:36 GMT

For some reason I can no longer send personal messages. When I try to put the cursor in the text box, the text box is highlighted but I can't type and the cursor won't appear. Does anyone have any idea why this might have occured or what could be causing it?
