    How do I award someone? I see I can "like" what they say but can I like them i general. Ex: I had a plant problem and people jumped in to help. How do I award these people so everybody knows.

    For a while now I haven't been able to edit my posts even seconds after I post one and need to edit it. I can delete it OK so I copy the post then delete it and paste it back in a new one and do my edits. When I click on the frame around a users avatar a box would pop up with info about the user and that doesn't work either. If I go to their profile the Recent Activity, Postings or Areas buttons don't load if I click on them.

    It all used to work before but it's been a month or more since it has. Did a setting get changed in my permissions or something maybe?

    :peace:

    I use TOR @greencropper and if I don't use the Remember Me the same thing happens because TOR changes servers all the time and without doing that it forgets you. Dumb computers!

    I'm using FireFox in TOR. Been using it for years and have played with all the settings in it to see if something in it was blocking certain forum functions but couldn't get anything to change here. Having probs with private messaging, moving posts and other things on a forum I moderate as well and as Admin I've been thru all the damn settings with the Invision Power Services software it runs on to no avail as well. Now I just swing the ban hammer without sending the spammer a nasty PM first but that was one of the perks of the job. :)

    It's likely something to do with TOR so don't waste much time trying to figure it out. I should probably just drop TOR but we ain't legal yet in Canukistan so I'd rather put up with some problems than end up with three hots and a cot at the taxpayers expense. lol

    Thanks for looking into it Sunni.
