How do I uns8ubscribe from this site?
I had a Top 5 Travel Writer badge for Liptovsky Mikulas and now it's gone.
Is there some temporary problem going on is it just me who can't upload a video. I have the same system from which I had uploaded my first video so flash player requirement isn't the issue for sure. I even tried in a different system but all I see on page 2 of video upload is "nothing". It just shows the heading "Step 2. UPLOAD YOUR VIDEO" and below it is a big blank white space and in the bottom it reads "Flash 220.127.116.11 or later is needed!"
As mentioned earlier I have version 18.104.22.168 installed
I replied to a post. A few minutes later I remembered some additional information. Now I cannot find the post. Any advice on how to do so? No, I don't remember the exact title of the post. Thank you.
Above the tips on a travel page there is a link which takes you back to the intro page of a travel page. The last few days this link has not been there when I have built a new tip. Has anyone else encountered the same problem?
Just discovered an annoying glitch on VT and not sure if anyone has noticed this. I replied to a posting -free city tram - Melbourne Travel Forum and then discovered that I needed to fix a typo. I hit the edit button and made the correction. I've discoved that there were 2 changes to original message:
1. The address I originally put in ptv.vic.gov.au/route/view/11... was changed to http://ptv.vic.gov.au/route/view/11 which is a different transport route.
2. I put in a link to a tip in the original post which displayed with a hyper link. When the post was re-posted after the edit the hyper link had disappeared.
Might be worth fixing.
BTW when I went to post this question, I was told there was not enough characters in the question - I had Glitch?? so just added another 2 x ?
How delete messages?
I've just tried to post a meeting, as London Calling. Despite entering the date and time in exactly the format required I get an error message saying "Please provide a date in the future" by both the date box and the time one (see screenshot). I know other people have had problems in the past but I thought they had been resolved with the recent updates - evidently not. Can anyone suggest a work-around, eg a different way of formatting date and time perhaps? I really want to post this special meeting which is to welcome MalenaN when she comes to London, especially as she posted it to start with and we then agreed that I would do it so she deleted hers!!
how do i delete my notices (119) without reading them?
Can I do that? or do I have to do it individually !
this discussion began in the travel forum from TomS148, who wanted a comparison of two hotels in puerto vallarta, mexico -- the playa los arcos hotel and suites beach hotel versus the plaza pelicanos club beach resort. currently this Q&A sequence is at Playa Los Arcos OR Plaza Pelicanos Club - Puerto Vallarta Travel Forum. my response to his Q is the fifth one.
as you will see if you read my response, the VT site/map for a search for "plaza pelicanos club beach resort" brought up a listing for "plaza pelicanos grand beach resort" (i could not find a listing for "plaza pelicanos club beach resort" on VT) and listed the address for the "plaza pelicanos grand beach resort" as calle diego rivera #120, a location about nine or ten blocks east of the beach on the south side. however, that listing also states the the hotel is in the "las glorias" neighborhood, which is on the beach about 10-20 blocks north of downtown. obviously this hotel cannot be both on calle diego rivera and in the "las glorias" neighborhood.
the expedia and travelocity sites both show the "plaza pelicones club beach resort" as located at calle jose clemente orozco #121, which is in the "las glorias" neighborhood, north of town, and also on the beach. therefore my final conclusion was that the VT map associated with the "plaza pelicones resort" -- whether "beach" or "club" -- was incorrect, showing as it does a street address that is in a neighborhood that does not include that street. i summarized all of this info in my response to tom's original inquiry.
then i posted a new Q (entitled "VT maps, puerto vallarta, mexico") in the travel, technical help, miscellaneous, and MAG forums asking VT staff to take a look at the confusing and inaccurate results i got from VT when answering tom's original Q. the originals of that new Q have evidently been deleted from all but the miscellaneous forum, maybe so that VT staff could try to untangle this mess. i haven't received anything from VT telling me what happened to that new inquiry, so i just don't know what to think.
to be on the safe side, i think i will post this Q in all three of the remaining forums, and we'll see what stays and what disappears. i have no objections to duplicate Qs being deleted or placed in a more appropriate forum, but i'm perplexed as to what happened in this case, and evidently so are several other people. i know this all sounds horribly tangled, but i hope everyone can follow what i've tried to explain. (by the way, i still haven't gotten a VT staff response to my original "VT maps, puerto vallarta, mexico" inquiry!)
at any rate, i will post this Q in each of the forums and see what happens.
thanks for your patience, everyone.

Can somebody please tell me how to make a screenshot that I can upload to a forum reply?
I know how to get a screen shot (ctrl + alt + prntscrn, yes?) and I can paste it into a Word doc. I even know how to compress the screenshot in the Word doc so I can easily attach it to an email.
But that's no good for uploading to a forum reply. So how does one do it?
Thanks in advance. :-)
I am trying to do a search for a particular activity in Dubai ("cultural brunch") but typing that in the search box at the top of the page just gets me to the Dubai page. Keyword search used to pull up actual search results from the forums and tips. Does that not exist anymore? Because if so, VT just lost 80% of its usefulness for me as a traveler.
Hello hello all, when I posted this question mid February, I didn't get a satisfying answer regarding "how to set a placemark".
This thread: The new Google Maps - how to set placemarks? - Technical Help Forum
It seems that by now the new Google Maps has spread all over the places. => does anyone of you know how to set the old placemarks into the new Google Maps?
Even when I post the URL of the old placemark of - for example - Neuschwanstein Castle:
it will resolve into this ridiculous new Google Maps, without any useful placemark and also NOT with the same very high zooming in I could have with the old Google Maps.
To show you what I mean in screenshots:
The left screenshot is the above URL in the old Google Maps, zoomed in to the highest level, with the green arrow as placemark and the "link" thing to the left with URL. If I copy and paste exactly this URL - which, in the past, has lead to a view with placemark and zoomed in, into my browser, I get
the right hand side ridiculous version, almost zoomed out into nirwana, and no arrow in sight.
Ok, maybe the green arrow was replaced with the red ballon thingy. But the zooming in-zooming out thing is completely nonsense......
And - how do I get the placemark thing into new Google Maps? When I try to do it the same way I did it with the old one (right mouse click and "What's here"), nothing happens = no placemark will be set.
I sound grumpy, I am grumpy, with this silly new Google Maps.
But maybe I just don't understand the new features?
Can anybody help me - pleeeease??!!
I am having so much trouble putting up a post for a VT meet....I save and save data and then it all disappears.I am so frustrated..can someone please help me ..
I've had this problem multiple times in the past...
Have just tried (again) to find the Civitavecchia page for a new member and it will not come up in a search. I had to find it via the Italy cities list.
We do have a destination guide for this one:
What do you suppose the problem is?
i asked a question and get an answer but can no longer find the topic , why is that? thanks
Where can i get/ buy a Virtual Tourist flag? Thanks in advance.
Upon writing in a certain destination in the search box, I keep on getting error pages with codes. Anyone having similar issues? For testing purposes, the destination is Ranthambore National Park in India.
Why don´t we get as long list of notices as we did before? I have used to use it, when I ask something at forum, and feel like reading the answer again later. Now I had a birthday, and got so many birthday wishes, that I wont see almmost none of forum answers I have got :( I need to google the forum name and try to find my own question there. I know we can save those to trip planners, but since it has been possible to find theses in notices before, it´s hard to remeber to save everyhting, I rather use trip planner to save tips.
Hello, I have two issues.
I have mistakenly built a "China" page under Asia-Japan-Okinawa-China.
This is incorrect.
I want to transfer the entire contents to the proper China, i.e. The Peoples Republic of China.
But I first need to build/start a China (the country) page to transfer everything to.
Problem is, everytime I select "China" an error comes up. So I cannot start a China - the country page and therefore cannot transfer the entire contents....
I also still cannot start a Mongolia page. I can start an Inner Mongolia page, but that is NOT what I want. I want Mongolia, the country....
I want to write tips for a new area that use photos that I have already used. I have had an accident with my external hard drive and no longer have access to the originals. The photos I want to use are not in my photo library ?pre photo library. If I save to a folder and then re load they come out as thumbnails. Is there any way to copy & paste?
I need to change my name and at this time I am not able to sign on.
I have been unable to access my Accounts Settings Page after providing my Password to verify membership. The last time I tried I did not even get the Verify Page but jumped to this - VirtualTourist.com
Anyone else having this problem? I see from previous questions below that others are experiencing different problems so presumably it is to do with further changes to the system.....forewarning of disruption would be much appreciated.
To start with, it is generally known here that I am a technophobe and completely useless at computers. My question is this.
Recently, and understandably, my notices box has been overflowing with the same question, "Is it safe to travel to Bangkok, Ko Phangan, Ko Samui, Chiang Rai or wherever in Thailand. I have a reasonable knowldege of that lovely country but I have not been there for about five years now and so have no meaningful information to give on an hourly changing state of affairs. I do not believe in Googling on behalf of others and only try to help when I know a place personally. I have pages on Bangkok and several other places in Thailand. Is it possible to stop being notified of these questions without removing these pages which I do not wish to do.
I know I can "unfollow" (if that is even proper English, which I doubt) each individual question but that really does not solve the problem. I have over 60 notices now and the vast majority are questions about travel to Thailand which I cannot answer, nor would I attempt to because I have no relevant local knowledge. Is there any way of doing this or am I destined to receive unanswerable questions forever? If any of you tech heads, specifically the staff, could assist I would be most grateful.
I am trying to get media accreditation for an event and need the name adress of the VT editor or chief of staff
Can anyone help me and wh do I contact at VT for these sort of issues?
When I try to create a page, I get this notice:
The System detected an Error: 500 Runtime Exception
Notification was sent to email@example.com.
Please include Error ID
in mail subjects when referring to this incident.
Don't know if anybody else is having this problem?
I sign in, finish writing a tip and are signed out, so lose the tip.
Write a forum reply, and even though I am still signed in, [ I checked] I can't post as the box pops up and asks me to sign in.
Any ideas would be great!
Hi there, when I bought my laptop it was an el cheapo with insufficient memory or ram or something!!! so a repair guy added something to the mother board to improve the computer,s performance. However I have never been able to add the number I need for M,soft Office due to this alteration. I would like to reduce photos to the size recommended for emailing but without access to M,sof Office can,t do it.
Is there some other way of doing it? I have Picasa 3 but don,t see anywhere with this function.
For a variety of reasons I had a lot of interaction this evening with a number of members (some hopefully former). Anyway, I landed back on my profile page just due to a mis-click and I noticed that all the activity of the prior hour was no there. Is there a delay in the posting for some interaction?
