The things I CAN'T do on SO

The things I CAN'T do on SO

Well, it's become apparent that I can hardly do anything on this new and improved (?), super-duper SO forum.

I've been doing some investigating, and here is a list of the features that I cannot use.

I can't:

- Send a new PM (although I can receive them and reply to the ones I get)
- Use the "Thanks" button
- Use the "Multi-quote" button
- Use the shoutbox (although there was 1 day when I could)
- Accept a "Friend"
- Do that thing where you can have a chat with someone in their profile.

There's probably other stuff I can't use, but I haven't discovered them yet.

Luckily for all of you, I can still post.

Is anyone else having problems using the "features" on the site?

Yes I am Figs :mellow:

I cant send PMs.

Look at peoples profiles

Chat with people in their profiles ....cos i cant go in them.

I cant even look at my own profile - because i dont have permission


Now all the above i could do, until i was told i had to change my password as the old one had expired.


Im not sure about the thanks or multi quotes (how the chuff do you multi quote *scratches head*). But i used to be able to 'thank' people, and i can accept friends. I know this ... because i now have loads *takes a bow*.

Edited to say - i can give thanks ... because i just tried it on you.

I'm not perfect, but im so close it scares me

Actually now you mention it, I think I lost some permissions when I changed my password too.

I used to be able to use the "Thanks" button, and I'm pretty sure I was able to do the "Chat in profile" thing too 'cos I vaguely remember using it once. But I've had to change my password twice since Haydon introduced these new features and it was probably after the first change that I lost permission to do those things.

I've never been able to do the other things on my list though.

:yahoo: You're funny, you are!

We both know that this place would be so much less without me......

In truth though, the thought did cross my mind. Then I realised that Haydon hasn't been around enough for me to p!.ss him off and besides, he wants to be my friend. And I haven't been rude to Pandora......

I can't play the piano. Could you sort that out Haydon - it's something I've always wanted to do.

Ta!
