Why am I not able to post in particular threads?

  • May 12, 2016 at 9:11 pm #47210

    Everybody should try this. But maybe they can’t see these messages right now… Is there an echo in here….

    Open a second window… go in through your history…. echo… echo….

    OK, six pics in a row of my stoney face is serious overkill. My apologies. I’m just trying to tie all this together.

    Here’s what should be my last update on the history-window thing — when you open the second window, go back to a time in your history when you were able to view whatever thread you keep getting bumped off of/can’t post to. Is everybody getting this? The second window and entering the site again through your history is key. And make sure you’re logged-in in your first window and that it stays open. Keep going through your history until you’re able to access threads in your second window. If need be, take notes from these series of posts….

    i’ve got nothing to say…just wanted to  breakup socrates’ iron death grip on this thread.

    carry on

    Is this an iron death grip? I was trying to be helpful. People are having login problems. I’ve figured out a way around it.

    Don’t worry about thanking me. I just wanted to share this info with all the EOMS members who are experiencing technical difficulties….

    Happy posting!

    didn’t you get the note?  technical difficulties are ‘temporary’

    …as far as snack machine is concerned, that is dead serious, no joke.  most famous one in the world is located at the Hilton hotel in Munich, incidentally.  Great Ju Jubes!

    Is that the joke, that the greatest snack machine in the world is in the Munich Hilton?

    Btw, the only way I can access your new posts on this thread is by the second-window method.

    Let’s see if I can distill this whole process down to its essence: 1) When you’re on EOMS, click “Enter the message board.” 2) View a thread that you might be having trouble accessing. 3) Then close the window. Leave the site. 4) Now you have the thread you viewed in your “history” on your computer. 5) Return to EOMS. 6) Click, “Enter the message board.” 7) Log in, but do not click on any threads, after you’ve entered the message board in this first window. Keep this window open. 8) Now open a new EOMS window, while leaving the first window open. 9) Click “Enter the message board” in this new window. 10) View any given thread in your new window. 11) Post at your leisure, as you can now see the full content of any given thread in the new window you’ve just opened.

    I believe that when Drake was drawing up wireframes for EOMS.org this 11-step process was exactly what he had in mind.

    I overcomplicated it. I was just trying to be thorough.

    This post was brought to you by the second-window method.

    It’s no joke, he’s started saving up to see The Police headline Coachella in 2036. So just be a nice guy and get a bag of Fritos each time you log in — ah, exact change only, please.

    I still don’t get it.

    May 13, 2016 at 2:45 pm #47246

    I have an exciting new development in the second-window method: I’ve now deduced that I’m only ever locked out of threads that I’ve previously replied to. This means, I have no problem accessing all the threads I haven’t replied to, on EOMS, and I can post a first reply to any given thread. However, when I return to a thread that I’ve previously replied to, in the hopes of making a follow-up response, I’m sometimes locked out of said thread. So, I can always access the threads I’ve been locked out of (threads I’ve previously replied to) while entering them through the second-window method (see:steps 1 to 11) by revisiting, in my history, through a second window, the first time I replied to any given thread that I’m currently locked out of.

    true, and there’s only so many entertainment dollars going around.  do I spend my money on esophagus entertainment, or taste bud entertainment?  it’s tough.
