Being Paged is for members who have an unanswered Paging thread in Problem Transactions. This doesn't always indicate a problem, but do check the member's feedback before entering a transaction.
Unresolved Transactions means that someone is in the midst of resolving negative transactions. They cannot use Invisible Mode or edit their personal settings, and they cannot block conversations. They can access the Marketplace but cannot start new threads there.
Marketplace Ban indicates that the member has lost Marketplace privileges and cannot buy, sell, trade or take commissions on DoA. They do have access to the feedback forum.
If you are in a problematic transaction, please start a thread in Feedback – Problem Transactions.
Clicking the Styler button will bring up more options, including more background colours and patterns.
Changing a preference is not retroactive. If you are already watching a thread or doll profile, you may still get alerts for it after you have updated your preference. If this happens, you will need to go back to the item and click 'unwatch' to prevent future alerts.
'Subscriptions' are now called 'watched threads' and 'watched forums', and links to these are under the Forums tab in the main navigation bar. There is no longer a page that displays all subscriptions or watched content.
If you want your profile to be public, set 'View your details on your profile page:' to All Visitors.
If you want your profile to be private, set it to Members Only or People You Follow Only.
To mark one forum read, visit that forum and go to Forums » Mark Forums Read.
This time, a window will pop up with an option to mark that forum as read:
Make your selection and click the Mark Forums Read button.
You can simply link to that image. Right-click the image you want to link to. Select View Image. Copy the URL for that image from your browser’s address field. Don’t use the Insert Image feature (that would be hotlinking). Just paste the URL into your post. Done.
You can save the image to your computer and upload it to your own hosting service, then post it. To do this:
- Right-click the image you want to save.
- Select Save Image.
- Proceed with the steps for posting a picture.
You’ll want to be careful not to violate the owner’s copyright. It is polite to secure permission before using any images that belong to others.
Mods edit hotlinked images so they appear only as links. If you routinely hotlink, you may receive a warning.
You can invite more people into conversations you have started, or in those where the conversation starter has ticked the box to allow it.
If you are starting a conversation and do not want the recipient(s) to invite others in, do not tick this option.
Choose any thread, scroll down to the bottom and click the Styler button. There are options for typeface, text size, text background and text colour. Click the green tick symbol to save your choices.
Note these choices will only change the text in posts and conversations, so you need to be on a page that displays them in order to see any difference.
You can also lock a conversation so that no one else can post in it. You may want to do this if you are sending a message to multiple people, but don't want to start a big group conversation. For example, you might contact members of a group order for their addresses, but you want each person to respond to you privately.
One notable difference is that the conversation search box only allows you to search for usernames, not keywords.
You will have three options to save your conversations:
• Text: This is a plain text file you can open in Notepad or Textedit.
• HTML: This lets you view your messages in a web browser.
• XML: This lets you view your messages in database software such as Excel.
To choose specific conversations to export, tick the box beside them and choose Export from the dropdown menu:
To export a single conversation, go to the conversation and choose your preferred format from the Export Conversation area at the bottom of the sidebar:
