    Blue badge deletion...

    by Bennytheball Online Now 8 hours ago

    Yawn!........How can I delete one of my pretty blue top travel writer badges for a destination? I refer specifically to the one for Figuig, Morocco, which I don't consider I merit, because I've never been through this one camel town, apparently I got the unexpected award by simply writing a few brief words somewhere to the effect that I doubted if there was a pub on its desert horizon and therefore it would not feature in my travel plans for next year! The absence of any other VT writings on the location appears to promote me to exclusive nomination for the badge, something I'm not comfortable with. Maybe if six other members just write how awful the prospect of venturing into this "watering hole-free" town would be, I will be knocked off my perch, so to speak, and the badge will just disappear?

    Any suggestions from you technical wizards?........... Benny.

    I have a question. Every time I want to reply to a question or a topic on the forums I have to log out first, search that specific topic again type my answer and then log in. If I'm logged in already, I don't see a box where I can type into.

    I would be really happy if someone could help me :) Right now it makes it some sort of a hassle to reply to questions. To be able to ask this question too, I had to fist log out and, then write and then send it as I didn't see the 'ask question' button while I was logged in.

    Kind regards,

    Aggravating Profile Page Layout.....

    by Bennytheball Online Now Nov 21, 2014 at 2:14 PM

    This annoyance only presented itself since the Profile Page layout was recently re-designed.

    When I attempt to read the latest unread notices by clicking on to my user name, the drop down menu appears to facilitate this adventure, but when I click on to "dashboard" the result collides with Travel Insurance which I don't need, as I always arrange my own. In order to avoid "Travel Insurance" popping up with its underline, I have to deftly and swiftly circumnavigate my pad mouse with gout-infested index finger to arrive at the "dashboard" menu, no mean feat for an old-timer like me!

    Can you not re-design, and shuffle "write a review" and "Bennytheball" along towards the left of the black banner, there is plenty of blank space?

    Or could this be a cunning Head Office plot to promote commission-basis sales of travel insurance?

    Benny.

    Restoration of photographs stored in damp conditions

    by ranger49 Online Now Nov 20, 2014 at 9:34 AM

    Hoping for  advice from some of our photographic experts.

    I have recently come into possession of a large collection of family photographs, all either black and white or sepia, and taken between 1910 and 1954. For at least the last 4 years they were stored in an old leather suit case in a damp cellar. Except for those taken by professional photographers and printed with a board backing they are ordinary family photos most of which I had never seen before. In order to "dry" them I spread them all separately on a large table. They are still not flat though and bend upwards at the sides so look like an almost completely flattened letter U.

    I have placed them individually under the heaviest weight I have - 14lbs/ 6. 3k but have not got rid of the bend. Any ideas?

    Or is this a hopeless task?

    Visibility/accessibility of newly created pages: is this a glitch?

    by Trekki Online Now Nov 2, 2014 at 9:49 AM

    I wanted to ask this since some time but first needed this to happen again so that I can make screenshots to show it on demand (of staff):

    sometimes - not always - when VTers create new pages, I can see that they have uploaded many reviews (via the "People following" function).
    But when I go to the respective pages' intros, I can only see a fraction of the reviews.

    Often, 1-2 days later I can see all the reviews from the respective intro pages.

    And to add some more confusion to this:
    this happens only with some VTers' pages, not with all.

    => is this a glitch? Am I the only one? Is it my computer and the settings?
    I am on Win 7 (desktop computer, no smartphone, notebook or tablet), FF ... well, I can't find the "about" questionmark anymore, to say which version it is. It is the latest, for sure, just 2 days ago it updated.

    Thanks for shedding light into this!
