finally people are complaining about us
I use a Mac (I use safari and chrome), and I have a glitch where anytime I try to access beyond page 1 of board topics, I see older blog posts, etc. Anything BUT actual board threads. Is there any fix to this?
first, you can click "recent" and that will let you scroll through pages sorted by most recent comments. The other thing that works is opening the second page in a new tab, just by right clicking and selecting "open in new tab".
Thanks for the help!
Sorry to ask this but if you want to block quote a statement, how do you do it? Not sure if you switch to plain text editor then add something else then switch back. Thanks.
I currently have 138 points and I am not seeing any arrows to upvote/downvote posts. Is there something wrong with me?
is a set of two arrows for threads and diary voting, and then every comment should have a scroll down list and a button that says "moderate" centered at the bottom of the comment. Are you seeing all of that or no?
No I am not seeing anything you are describing. And wow, Flamebait for asking a question on a frequently ask questions thread, ouch.
Interesting, PGB said the same thing with his new username yesterday. I'd try emailing Brian, this is above my paygrade.
I will try that, thanks for the help.
it's saying you have 73 points, and that usually comes around at 100.
Edit: On the page here it says 146. This is kind of confusing, actually.
Edit II: It doesn't look like you had any points given that might have expired or taken away, so I really have no idea what the discrepancy could be.
Yeah, I is confused. I will email Brian to see if the confusion can be remedied. Again, thanks for the help.
Just give him 150 points and see if he can post. Not like points matter.
Hi, My dilemma is this: I have a great true story about Trey Burke but being new here I cannot post it yet. I've been meaning to tell this story for months but now would be the perfect time. Would it be possible to send you my idea and if approved post it as soon a possible? I read M-Goblog every day but would never be a reguar poster or commenter. The list would really appreciate this story.
Link in the "How can I bold stuff, insert images, embed videos, etc?" FAQ above no longer works. In trying to find it, I noticed a bunchof old articles in the forums noting it was gone... but it's still here.
In my opinion, a link to the "META: Embed Refresher Course" article here would be helpful. I found an older one which ranked higher in my Google search but didn't work as it pre-dated the current software.

I've tried loading a few different photos for an avatar but none will load. I keep getting
- the selected file could not be copied
- failed to upload image, the pictures directory doesn't exist or isn't writable.
What file extension are you using? Could you possibly upload the picture to a different website like tinypic.com and then link it here to this thread? If so, I might be able to help you out.
Just trying to test out an embed feature:
Alright, why can't I embed a video to start at a specific time? I wanted to use a different video, but I figured this video would be a good one to test on.
Here's my embed code without the opening and closing arrows:
iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/v7Ic3g9Hn1U#t=23s" width="560"></iframe
Testing something out here:
The problem with your code is you are doing this #t=23s. Well that only works to post a youtube link that makes the video start at a certain time on the youtube page. If you want the embed link to work you have to do this:
<object width="560" height="315"><param name="movie" value="//www.youtube.com/v/v7Ic3g9Hn1U?version=3&hl=en_US&start=23"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="//www.youtube.com/v/v7Ic3g9Hn1U?version=3&hl=en_US&start=23" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="560" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>
That is the correct code to make an embed video start at whatever time you want.
Hey. I am a HUGE Michigan fan living in Tennessee. Does anyone here have a watchespn subscription they would be willing to let me use so i can watch michigan when they are on espn. I have a btn2go subscription by watchespn is unsupported by my dish network subscription. Anything would help! Thanks
Real basic question - can we send messages to other posters? Don't see a way to do so.
Either email Brian or get agreement with another poster to share emails and I'll set it up.
Trying to start a thread. Was able to paste in the title area, but not in the body.
Still can't paste in the body. Anyone else with this problem?
Copy whatever it is you want to copy. The when you want to paste it in the body of a new thread. Click in the body of the thread and then hold down ctrl or command. Ctrl for a windows, Command for a Mac and while you're holding that down hit V. It will paste whatever you copied into the body of the new thread.
Is there an easy way to see if another poster has replied to one of your posts? If not, can it be developed?
The only way I see to go back to an exchange I was having is to click on "My Account" and see the posts I made. When I click on them, they often take me to the beginning of the thread and not my post. That means sifting through multiple pages to find it, only to sometimes see there was no response.
I've been at other forums that have notifications when you have a reply, and a link embedded that takes you directly to the reply.
Is there a chance we could deal with the downvoting of old posts issue? Brian had mentioned that he wanted to address this. Some psycopath has just downvoted about 300 of my old posts in the service of some creepy vendetta. Any chance this can be fixed?
When I go to my account and see the list of my posts, sometimes when I click on one it takes me to it and sometimes it doesn't. Why is that? Does that only work for certain posts? Thanks!
If you're clicking through your recent posts list and the thread has been deleted, comments locked or something along those lines you won't be able to see that reply any more.
There could just be some kind of a glitch, but that would be the first thing I'd take a look at.
Oh, they're not missing, sorry for the confusion. What I meant was, when I go to "my account," it shows all of my posts as hyperlinks. When I click on the hyperlink, sometimes it takes me dierctly to my post in the thread, and sometimes it just takes me to the thread generally, and then in order to find my post, I have to scroll and scroll.
Please guide me the way to check my earning points. I am a new user here.
Now I can see my points. It was so simple and easy. :)
New User here. Testing out the embed. Summer workout highlights with jabril Peppers, Funchess and more!
When I read posts on the site and I want to reply my reply does not show up. What am I doing wrong?
I am going to my first Michigan game at the end of September for Minnesota. I am so excited! I just wondered what I should definitely check out while I am in town for the weekend. My wife got me the tickets for my birthday so I would like to do something she nice for her while we are there and also enjoy the campus and of course Ann Arbor.
How do I upvote or downvote? Do I need to receive a certain amount of points? Sorry if I missed the explanation.
When you hit 100 points you'll be able to vote and post a thread or write a diary.
Am I in semi-Bolivia(?) and why? No ability to start threads and cannot see or do up/down votes. Is there a way out?
Oops, just noticed I'm several thousand points negative and last I remember looking I was several thousand positive(?)
Are avatar uploads still not working? I could only find a couple posts discussing them and it seems uploading them were disabled in 2011, but don't know if the problem was fixed. I went to change mine and it says it wasn't possible. Keep getting this:
http://mgoblog.com/themes/tapestry/css/images/message.png);">I tried to change the pic size to exactly 85x85 but even that didn't work. Guess I shouldn't have deleted my old one as it'd be better to have one than not at all.
Far as I am concerned, each of these members on the board of regent
should get the Pink Slips and send in new set of board members.
Also show the president out the door and put in a new CEO for this
university. They are too strict when it comes to rules and policies at this
campus. I understand that they want to up hold the tradition, culture, and
dignity, and people friendly but they need to loosen that real tight grip
(just right tight grip is all it is need it). The university want to be like
a private learning institution like Boston College, Notre Dame, Stanford,
Vanderbilt, Northwestern, and all of the IVY League colleges. It has changed
so much that the leadership don't care about winning games, matches, meets,
and whatever else. It has turned into an academic come first institution then
any extra curricular activities. I will still follow the Wolverine athelatics but NOT
as a diehard TrueBlue fan. I am beginning to follow local college team out here
in Left Coast and I am fine with that.
How do I embed videos, photos, and Gifs? In laymen terms, if possible. Thanks in advance
