Don't forget that it made you use a Caps, lowercase and special character when you created a password. If you used auto save, it could have reverted back to your previous password for user name since the domain name changed but your username stayed the same.

Yep, no worries on my part either. Nothing worthwhile in the short to medium range. Pleasant weather actually.

I'm guessing PM is setting up the new domain name, he said it would take a few hours.

That's what I am guessing, taking longer than originally thought. He had said 2-5 or 3-6am overnight last night and again tonight. Also stated all 4 of the polled weather names would be registered to redirect to the new disco domain.

Felt it was worth a mention here in case others freaked out seeing that.

It's gonna take some getting used to after this layout for the past nearly 9 years.

I created a severe thread for today/tomorrow to test it out. It's not so much the posting, but navigating all the different regions and such.

Any way to increase the size of profile images to the same size here? Want to keep my profile pic but wants me to crop it down to square and about 2/3 of current one.

Check your spam folder. Most of my regostrations come straight through, but for some reason this one, both actually as I re-sent it, went straight to spam.

I really hope we somehow can all stick together, I went ahead and registered at WXforum.net but they really need a section devoted to allow posts like ours with tracking events and in a regional manner... perhaps I am just missing it??? For example a place for specific winter storm threats (ex: Dec 1-3 MidATL/NE Winter Storm)


Ken(the admin at wxforum) has stated on here and that site to create threads there just as we would here. The biggest difference between here and there that i notice is there isn't a subtitle bar to go along with the main topic:

Dec 1-3 MidAtl/NE Winter Storm

Cogitaion; 7-14 Days; Forecasts

But that was an Accuweather specific requirement for thread creation.

So our threads over there would look the same, just all in one title and we probably would not have two threads for each winter system. One for Forecasts and one for OBS, so it would just be a Forecasts and OBS thread similar to Severe threads.

They do have a Severe Weather subforum but I don't think a Winter specific one. I would imagine it would go under Weather Conditions Discussion as it says current, past and future weather. Pretty much like our Current US Weather forum we are presently using.

Yes, they need some work over there. Even the main board for what should be "Current Weather" doesn't seem to have individual threads for current conditions in the specific parts of the country where they are occurring.

I created one thread in the Severe Weather sub forum during the IA tornado breakout.

Didn't realize another thread already existed for the following days(yesterday) event or probably would have just posted in it.

Here we separate regions even though it is the same system, it looks like their thread titles are very similar to what stormtrack does.

If you have a large slight risk it includes all the states included in it regardless of which region they are in. Whereas here we might have 3 separate threads for that same event, one for the MW/OV, one for NE/Mid Atl and one for the Southeast.

Once accuweather shuts down it is gone. It's not as if ww can just go take over someone elses forums and tell them the new way they are going to operate things regardless of which site that emds up being. The current one being tested out has been established for over a decade, just like here. Imagine ifbthey shut down and migrated here expecting us to change our ways to fit theirs.

I know you weren't implying that, and not directing this directly to you. Quoted your post about how I seen differences in the way they generate threads compared to here and went off topic a bit. Just notice there are a lot of complaints about what other sites don't have that accuweather does as a reason they don't like it.

I tried yesterday and today and can't get the Captcha picture sliders to work.

What I ultimately had to end up doing is to tap the slide area to get it to move rather than slide the slider. Just tap until all 3 images are upright

Edit, I was using an android phone.

I did use a gmail account. When I attempted to re-register, now I get a message that someone already has the name jdrenken. Not only that, but to accuse people of "folks with diminished visual acuity" when, in reality, it's the captcha that can't figure out what horizontal vs vertical means is a little bit insulting.

But hey...what do I know.


Odd, doesn't show up in the member list. Must store the user name even if not activated.

He also posted this yesterday, probably in response to the posts in this thread

QUOTE
Yes, we have TWO separate captcha instances (Google reCaptcha and a noCaptcha) to prevent spambots from autoregistration and flooding the forum with bogus postings. Since we did that, very few miscreants have made it through the gauntlet to annoy the members. We recommend using gmail or hotmail addresses .. due to the shared mail gateway used by our hoster, we sometimes end up on spam blacklists so comcast, sbcglobal, att, rr addresses may bounce the validation email (and so you can never complete the registration/activation process).

But.. the noCaptcha image rotation captcha has a couple of downsides:
1) it doesn't work well on iOS/Safari (can't move the controls easily) and
2) doesn't support folks with diminished visual acuity. For that, send me a note (use the contact form at Saratoga-weather.org ) and I'll help with registration.

I was a member of WeatherMatrix, but had no special relationship with Jesse either there or here. I liked the old weatherforum.net for the weather software/hardware and website programming stuff. When weatherforum.net died suddenly, four of us worked to resurrect it as wxforum.net in 2006, and two of the original founders are still active on the site.

It's true that wxforum.net tends more to weather software/hardware and website programming stuff, but never to the exclusion of other topics interesting to weather enthusiasts, so the Accuweather forum folks are and should feel quite welcome there.

WXforum.net was founded as an independent (not sponsored by a weather software enterprise) and so is a bit different than specialty forums for Weather-Display, Cumulus, WeatherCat and Meteobridge. We do have members who are primary authors of some of that software, but main support for their producs really exists on their dedicated forums.

Yes, we've had some heated discussions regarding climate change, and some members had to be counseled about bad behavior, but in general, the forum has a lot of knowledgeable, helpful and mostly polite members, and we like it that way smile.gif

Best regards,
Ken (admin WXForum.net)


And you are a member here indeed laugh.gif

Is there a certain format you would like "transients" from here to use when creating new threads or topics?

One thread covering multiple dates for the same system(as is here) or a separate thread for each date of an event unfolding?

I think one of your sites members, Intheswamp, said it best:
