    General Forum Questions

    This thread is dedicated to all members who will have any questions/suggestions/advices regarding ENCODE.SU forum.
    It´s not designed for specifically targeted questions about particular algorithms/software. It´s only for member´s questions about this forum.
    For example: "Can I have multiple forum accounts under the same email address?" OR "Why I am unable to edit already sended PM?"
    It´s not for questions such as "I need PAQ GUI EXE implementation" OR "I´ve discovered a flaw in DEFLATE algorithm" and so on.

    The point is to make forum more clean and avoid possible duplicates. For example, @suryakandau makes many new irrelevant threads - OBWT, PAQ8SK, CMIXV18_SURYA, CMIX HP, bigm file compressor (renamed cmix). @schnaader follows my advice. If you are disagree with that, consider an extreme case - we decided to make a new thread for every new paq8px version. See? There will be horrible amount of irrelevant threads. The same for forum problems/suggestions. Another thing - this thread belongs to paq8px, but it´s posted as a thread. But, this thread is a nice case for General Forum Questions post.

    Below are some links for quicker navigation and to avoiding duplicated posts - so, if you´re able to find answers to your questions, please don´t make a new one.

    Hopefully, this thread will help all members to quickly find appropriate answer to it´s questions or to resolve problems with forum usage.

    I noticed that every time I make a short post (such as this), signature is placed in a new line i.e. there´s irrelevant space between signature and "Thanked XX times in XX posts". I prior thought that big avatar size causing problems, but problem persist even when avatar was significantly smaller. Thus it would be better if signature could be anchored to "Thanked XX times in XX posts" line. Could you check that, please?
    Many thanks.

    Sorry, I'm not a VB developer. Maybe you can look into it on your own?
    And tell me specifically which settings have to be changed, or maybe some plugin to add?

    @shelwien,
    could you delete member BestComp? That account belongs to me (I created it when we discussed one email address, two accounts issue), but I don´t remember registration email and I dont want to have this account at all. Thanks.

    ​I would like to be able, being not logged in, to view the Profile and find the latest messages of a particular user.

    1) This is a default VB4 forum, I didn't write the engine, so its hard to do non-standard things.
    Please find on your own the way to do what you want - I don't see it: https://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/...rofile_options

    2) "Find" functions do an actual DB search, so making them public would cause DDoS by search engines.
    It may be possible to disable indexing for these in robots.txt but not 100% of bots follow it.

    3) I may be able to do something like this, but for all members: http://nishi.dreamhosters.com/
    But do you have an actual reason for not logging in?

    I don't know how to make profiles public,
    but it seems that search function currently doesn't require login anyway:
    hxxps://encode.su/search.php?do=finduser&userid=4781
    &contenttype=vBForum_Post&showposts=1

    So just change the userid to the one you need?

    It worked for me. https://www.isitdownrightnow.com/encode.su.html
    Just in case, maybe add ip to hosts (67.205.14.136)
