I am really not in the mood of reposting what I have already posted. So I will include a link to the post that discusses all of this. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1581141

So please go there, and review my complaints that I wish to be straightened out, or resolved in some other way.

I will be waiting patiently for a reply.

ALSO WANTED TO ADD: Resolution Center is not easy to find. Should be in a place more visible. You can thank your mod forestpiskie for sending me the link.

First your attitude needs to lighten up , the Resolution Center has been here for a long time and as you can tell by a quick perusal others have found it with relative ease. Also the Forum Council is not about to jump through hoops to help with your ,"you go find it" attitude.

As for closing threads, You stated in the jailed post "So I will point out to ALL MODS (even if you personally dont do this kind of stuff) that just because you PERSONALLY do not want to look into it, gives you NO RIGHT TO CLOSE A THREAD."

From the Code of Conduct "You agree that the web-master, administrators and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any post, topic or thread at any time they see fit"

The staff member when closing the original thread gave a clear reason for the closure and chose to repost the same material the reason the second thread was closed.

Wow, that was more quicker than I thought, please talk with forestpiskie, he now more or less knows how I feel, he has been talking with me in PMs.

First off, I hope you understand why I had an attitude. Second I am in no way asking anyone to jump through hoops. As far as the attitude, I apologize. It still does not make any sense to close a thread when someone is asking for help. I cant even think of how many times I go and help someone when no one else will because it would be a long and tedious task to do so. For all we know, eventually someone would of came in with a hint or even a resolution to my problem I was having with the code.

I would PM you so we can discuss this quicker and in more detail, as you know actually convo is easier to resolve things. But I also figure you are to busy being one of the admins. Unless you say that we can PM to hammer this all out.

Thanks for looking into it.

Although this area is restricted to post by the Complainant and Forum Council I would like to have post from the staff concerned to update the current situation.

The thread has been reopened and I fully support and agree with it being reopened.

This does highlight an exception that does need to be made for the Programming Talk section.

Given that Code is complex lengthy it does in some cases need to be shown in its entirety to ensure that the boffins can make an educated assessment and conclusion. To that end I believe that we need to allow a greater level leniency when it comes to post size and or attachment.

Ok so question. Next time should I post the code in an attachment instead of posting inside the CODE brackets?

What is easier for experts in there to work with? That is the most important part, its about customer service and what I am keen for .

k, thanks, but not sure which would be easier, I guess that depends on size of the code.

Indeed. Sometimes it's easier to just open a file in an editor and see all the tags highlighted for php then it is to look at it in a web browser.

Sorry for delayed response, it's Friday, and I am just "not here" currently.

Thread was originally closed as it seemed like homework thread - in short, putting his entire class project on the table and asking for someone to "fix this".

After some words with forestpixie, and seeing some of the evidence made available by him. Became clear I was wrong in my original intention, settled differences and reopened the thread as per OPs request.

Hi - not sure there's much to be accomplished now that the original thread is re-opened.

But, I was not imvolved with the original thread at all but responded to a report regarding the second thread - which I closed as it appeared to be an attempt to circumvent the action taken already.


That in turn led to a Cafe thread (and closure) and more than a few PMs with the OP, which in turn led here.

Glad to see the outcome was good for all involved.
