Technobiff questions for clever internetters...

Postby BA2 » Thu Oct 31, 2013 7:24 am

Not so much a comment as some questions I've been wondering about regarding how the board works... I hope they're not too stupid!

1. How long do PMs take to deliver? I've send a detailed PM relating to a separate email email and noticed the PM hasn't moved from my outbox, is that normal? No I need to do anything else?

2. Does anyone know why I can't post or PM from my iPhone (using the TouchBB 'light' app) I'm logged in and can read posts etc but cannot contribute...

Advice gratefully received!

PMs are delivered instantaneously. If a PM appears in your Outbox, the recipient hasn't opened it yet. If it appears among your Sent messages, then the recipient has accessed the message.

I don't know anything about that app, other that there were tentative plans to support it when the board was revamped a few years ago. It didn't meet with KOS-MOS's standards, so it never went further than that, if I recall correctly. I've made posts and sent PMs using an android phone and the standard FC interface before, does that not work on an iPhone?

Thanks Robotman!

Didn't know that about PMs - makes sense.

The (free) Touch BB app works well for reading the board, a bit less fiddly than scrolling around the full site on a teeny-tiny screen, but I can revert to Safari to post now that I know that's what I need to do.

Cheers for the quick accurate reply and hats off to you and the other mods for all your efforts here - if only real life was as well run!

Now, I don't have any of the fancy quote or text features, but I'm actually replying to your thread from TouchBB Light on my iPhone. Are you sure the app is the problem? Maybe it isn't supported for a specific model iPhone (Apple is notorious for this, trying to get you to pay to upgrade)?

Hey guys, I don't think it's only me, but I recently got a new iPad, and the app I had on my old iPad, namely TouchBB (the pay for version) is gone from the App Store. In fact, the free version is missing too, so I can't download it. Anyone know about this? If it is really gone, maybe we should just remove the prompt we get every time we access the site on an iOS device.
