      My best guess......... when a v-bulletin admin wants to forcefully (without persmission) enter settings pages of whoever they want, the "settings" option becomes unavail. to the forum users. This a stone cold example of what happens when an option like "settings" becomes disabled as that is one option that's easily entered by admin. I was told this by a v-bulletin expert, as I don't know jack sht about how this forum junk works. It's also true that if you think you're afforded privacy as to WHO you Rep and for what reason.....think again.

      with that said, I don't worry about privacy issues with who i PM or Give rep points to.........confidence and transparency in everything I type.

      Please keep in mind that this is just a theory, one of which I hope is proven wrong.

      Another prime example to prove this true......is you will see multiple forum members banned or given flame rule violations that occur at one particular time.

            We're not sure what happened, fellas. It's not some back-door way for us to gain access to anyone's private information, regardless of what you may have heard from a vBulletin expert. We're working on getting this figured out and will have that function restored as soon as possible.

              Not sure how you did that HD.

              I think I got a rap on the knuckles for maybe going over the line in the thread on federal close down. Strange though.

                yup, it's missing for us mods too. As I have said before though I can only speak for myself, I really never mess with folks accounts outside necessary mod duties. Not that you aren't all very fascinating people of course!

                  how 2 access your subscribed forums, and why "Settings" link no longer appears

                  click on Quick Links, then click on Subscribed Threads

                  So far as to the root of the disappearance, this HTML snippet looks pretty suspect:

                  <li><a href="usercp.php"></a></li>

                  The HTML tag that starts out "a href" is a link and the "/a" tag ends the operation, with what's in between is the text that is the link's text that you click on to go to that link. but there's no text there, so voila', there is now no link on screen for us to click on.

                  Instead, that line should read like this:

                  <li><a href="usercp.php">Settings</a></li>

                  Mods/admin, go into your page template for the main page template and make this change (adding the word "Settings" to this spot) and it'll reappear, just like it was never gone.

                      Until its fixed, use this link - i.e., click below on the word &quot;Settings&quot;

                      Settings
                      .....

                          I'm not sure what you find to be all spooky like. It's just HTML.

                          I've been doing HTML since most forum members here were in Jr. High.

                          HTML is nothing more than a simple text file that is interpreted in run time. Easy as Pie.

                            Holy smokes, Familyman..........that is kind of scary.

                            This internet voodoo is creepy stuff, I clicked on that "settings" link you provided and it led me right to the whole reason a government shutdown is about to occur. :cool:

                              That makes sense, yes.

                              The link I provided takes you to the location on the Internet where you most want to go. For Rich, that would be the Settings page. Now we know what you're looking for, my friend. And from the sounds of grey, he has his own unique mission here on the Internet. ;-)

                              (P.S. Since it was first said in 1979 "No one can see the sarcastic smile you were wearing when you typed that", let me assure all that nothing in this post is true, except that Mainer is indeed a good friend.)
