Post by: Chris Thomas on February 11, 2012, 03:11:13 PM
Well, this topic can cause some newbies to post like a REAL bot to climb up the ladder of ranks. Just my point of view of course.

Post by: SpeedyPC on February 11, 2012, 03:24:45 PM
I guess the Administrator, avast! √úberevangelist and Global Moderator may have to watch the users behaver when posting, because I know for a fact that some users are trying to climb the rank as quickly as they can. I'm sure we all had this conversation before to stop user from reaching the avast! Evangelist rank, unless agreed by Administrator, avast! √úberevangelist and Global Moderator only.

Post by: spg SCOTT on February 11, 2012, 03:27:12 PM
Well, this is in some way irrelevant now because the post count and other titles are separate...so it doesn't really matter how much you post...the content is the important bit.

Personally I don't understand why beta tester is even there, they are after all avast users and forum members, in which their normal forums rankings would apply. Or you could have multiple icons.

Post by: ady4um on February 12, 2012, 08:43:30 PM
It's not so much about the icons, but about permissions. It doesn't really hurt they are there, for whichever use they want to give to them (maybe in the future). Resellers could have their own section, as an example. It's the same with the "Polymorphic Sheep" group. Who knows why one forum member would use it instead of other Groups? But there it is, and probably they know why they want it.

[EDIT]
My apologies to Chocholo, as he would probable like this topic clean.

Beta Tester is just a test of "freely joinable" group, maybe it'll get deleted.

If somebody was to leave a group  would they be able to rejoin it anytime they want?
Title: Re: Forum information

You mean the Beta group? Yep, it is possible to freely join/unjoin at any time.
Title: Re: Forum information
Post by: ady4um on February 13, 2012, 05:23:21 AM

One thing is to *leave* a group. Another one is to be part of more than one group, while one of those groups is set to be the Main (or Primary) Group for that specific user.

You can change your primary group (and then go back again to the first one) as many times you want, as long as you are still part of those groups (i.e. you didn't "leave" the group by yourself, or the mods didn't "kicked you out" from it).

While I can understand the need/desire to keep some functions away from people who have only recently joined, the 20 post minimum before a new forumite can edit his profile/signature doesn't seem to 'newby friendly', and as Chris already stated, can 'encourage' users to make useless posts just to get to certain benchmarks/tags.

Correct BUT it goes a long way to preventing spam links in signatures being seeded and most admins are faced with the stark choice of spam annoying their members and also using up bandwidth or prevention and some people being upset. Manually vetting new posters on a forum this busy is just not feasible.

Title: Re: Forum information - PM issues.
Post by: robertaitaly on February 29, 2012, 03:01:37 AM
Hello, I registered yesterday because, like many, I have problems with the last update of avast. I do not speak or write English, but I understand enough reading.
Before I thought the Google translator, a gentle oldest member helped me, saying to ask any other questions via PM, and today I found a message on my profile box.
I can not answer, and because I do not see the mail icon under his name, and because I can not find the response function to the message in my inbox.
I also tried to write a new message, instead of an answer, but it says that "not enabled" for this function.
How do I do? I'm sorry not to respond to Tetsuo, since it has proved so helpful and courteous.
Moreover, I would also ask some further explanation (in Italian) on the difficulties with the update of Avast 7, because the Italian section of the site is still very active, and I have not found the answer I seek.
It 's urgent, are now four days that Avast does not update virus definitions or neither program.
Can anyone help me?
Thanks and hello to everyone.

The PM function isn't available until you have 20 posts, this is an anti spam measure to prevent misuse of the PM function by spammers. Unfortunately that effects legitimate new users.

Essentially when you need help it should be done through the forums as PMs are a 1 to 1 communication which doesn't help others who might have the same problem.

 Thanks for the clarification. I understand the problem, and in fact I suspect that was part of the proper restrictions for the uninitiated, but in the instructions of the forum was not clear what were the restrictions for the uninitiated. And, frankly, I thought that just one person who had bad intentions should not do is shed a dozen posts around here and there.
At the same time I would take into account the fact that this is not a forum to chat, but a forum that is used in case of urgent need for a serious problem such as viruses. If your new subscribers do not receive help, even when the program itself to be faulty, we are forced to seek help elsewhere, and perhaps even in dangerous areas. Panda I just left at the end of my subscription because of me, as a user of Italian language, had not given the necessary support.
However, it is clearly a bad habit of the computer world, which sells its products worldwide, but expects to communicate with customers in English only. This is just a personal observation, not a reproach, because Avast has the right to self-determination as well, however, there have also its customers.
For the last renewal thanks to forum members that, with such good will, to make up for deficits of the company. Sorry if my post is wordy, but the Google translator, if I do not write complex sentences, does not understand: he is .... only a computer!

Good morning everyone,

     My post is related to the original topic here...the issue of titles, newbies posting in rapid fire in order to move up the ladder (so-to-speak), etc.

I concur with much of what has been said.  This morning, for example, I notice that a particular newbie is already going all around the sub-forums and posting as much as he/she can.  In one instance, this person responded to another member's post saying only and I quote, "That's weird, lets hope someone else stops by."

Posts like this may prevent another member from getting timely help since it bumps up the "replies" meter unnecessarily and the newbie in question is NOT providing any useful information or other assistance to the OP.

Just something for thought.

Best regards,

Certain options require 20 posts before they are available to you. I am not certain of all these options but I believe adding a signature is one of them.

Good news is, after 3 posts, there is no more Captcha.

Once you get to 20 posts, you go under Profile -> modify profile -> forum profile. From here you can add a signature.

Has the size-limit on profile sigs been recently sharply reduced, and did I miss an announcement of that?  Just having updated my Firefox to 26.0 (which actually reduced my sig length by 2 characters), when I clicked on "change profile" I got an error message saying the sig couldn't exceed three lines, so I had to remove my "My name is Any Key ..." thing to continue.

My old sig was five lines, and I thought the limit was 6 - ?

Thanks and best,
Mike

Could the profiles be enhanced to include a hw/sw section that did not allow links? It seems to be a common practice for members to list the hw/sw they use (I'm guessing its in the signature) which is a frequently asked question when us newbies post a request for help. I wouldn't expect that links would be needed in a section dedicated to the hw/sw environment that could be relevant to solving a problem. Might save a question/answer round or two in the replies.

NoScript and RequestPolicy in firefox are belonging together like the two faces of old Janus.
The twin-extention security you cannot do without  ;D and DavidR can assure I am right here.
Together with ABP and avast Online they could be "Swiatowid" security (four faced watching S-E-N-W)

All three of them work just fine together - the only issue some have (not me) with RequestPolicy (RP) is it is some what more high maintenance. This is because many sites now have a huge number of third party sites that they access and automatically this access with RP, that access is blocked.

You have to allow access to sites (not to all) displayed - but over time this doesn't become too much hassle as you get a very good idea what 3rd party sites to allow or some of the images and layout might be missing/disorganised.

This really should be in the my.avast.com sub-forum https://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=62.0

Your email address is tied to your my.avast.com account, logging on there will allow you to add a new email address to the Manage Emails part of the settings. This will need to be validated, once validated you can then set it as the default, which will then have changed in the forum profile settings.

If you need any further assistance, please create a new topic in the my.avast.com forum link above.

I don't know if I can't see profiles because I'm new, or nobody can see them.

The IP and more are also shown for me, but not for anybody else. I'm wondering if I'm the only one who can see them. Thanks!

<snip>

What you see in your posts is the Display name, not the user name (so it isn't public), only users who are logged in can view a very restricted sub-set of your profile information.

Because you are also very new, you have restrictions on what you can view, even in your own profile until you are no longer a newbie.

G'day all - just returned to the forum, and noticed the display time was different to my local, so I adjusted it.  While there, I saw the offset was 6 hours, which I dimly remember setting long ago, but now I have to set it at 7 hours.  My standard offset is +8 (Western Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia...).

Does this forum live in a Daylight Saving locality?  And if so, is there an automatic adjustment for the forum end?

(Western Australia currently does not use Daylight Saving since we massacred a Political Party at the elections 11 years ago for trying to pull the wool over our eyes  ;D)

Hi, Forum is set to Prague time (CET). There's no DST in Europe in winter.
Title: Re: Forum information, recommendations and few rules
Post by: gordon451 on January 27, 2017, 12:15:47 PM
Hi Asyn - thanks for responding.  That's what I thought--Prague that is.  No DST in Winter is pretty standard--there's a story there, for later--but you do have it in Summer.  Is there some (auto) adjustment which can be made to the forum to accommodate those of us who have the good fortune to not have DST?

Actually, looking at the "Look and Layout" page, time adjustment is made relative to Prague, where it should be made relative to UTC which is standard almost everywhere.  This would be a remarkably simple fix, IIRC there is a JS/ECMAscript function somewhere?
Title: Re: Forum information, recommendations and few rules
Post by: Asyn on January 27, 2017, 12:30:03 PM
You're welcome. As I'm in the same timezone as Prague, I never needed/tried it.
I does adjust automatically according to the European DST changin dates, if your DST dates differ you need to manually adjust it in the forum settings.

Your login for your account is separate to here at the forum, there is no ban on your IP  that I can see or else you wouldn't be posting here now ::)

I don't need your password (always keep that private), if your email and user name is different from what you are using now you could try sending it to me via pm and I'll see if I can find anything.

There is no history of the name or email you have sent me and your IP is fine, you need to create an account on the forum with that name and email...you might need to log out and clear your cache then open up the forum page and create the new account with the name and email you sent to me by using the register link at top right of the sign in page.

You do have a 'forum' Name, it is what is displayed to the left of all of your posts 'logika4e'

It isn't used on the registration page, your email and password are used to register.

In my profile (Modify Profile) - (https://forum.avast.com/index.php?action=profile (https://forum.avast.com/index.php?action=profile)) I see a field for AIM - This is your AOL Instant Messenger nickname. Here I read that "AIM has been discontinued as of December 15, 2017". If AIM does not exist, what do I put in this field? :)

You don't have to put anything in any of those fields unless you want to.

Hello I just bought a couple of licenses. Language of all messages and information I receive from Avast is German. How should I proceed to replace it in English or French. When I connect to my Avast account homepage, if I go to settings I am indeed able to select the language I want. However, when clicking on the icon in the task bar at the bottom of my pc, the Settings only allow Deutsch which is the language I used to purchase the licenses.
Thank you

Please start your own new topic in the main forum (https://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=2.0), if this advice doesn't resolve your problem.

Open the avastUI (click the tray icon) and select the Menu option, whilst this would be in a different language (German) the icons and locations should be the same).  Now click the Settings (gear icon), the next window (Settings > General) will open.  The very first option Language and to the right of that is the 'Install additional languages' option.  Another window will open with the languages available, Select English or French and click OK.

Once installed, you you will need to go back in to the Settings General and select which language to use.  I don't know if it would require a reboot to use the new language or not.
