Ha ha..so this has happened not only to me. The other day, the same happened to me and I never knew a duplicate post existed until a moderator edited my post. I didn't notice the duplicate post mostly because the second post was created in a new page (I guess, because I never saw it, and the edited post was the last in the last page)!

Mods, I was getting some weird database connectivity errors today morning around 5-6. Was there any outage? Forum displayed a database error while Classifieds page what returning error information for the failed DB calls.

It would be good to hide/mask the debug information and display custom errors instead of displaying the error stack trace to all users which I feel could turn into security risks.

Zenren,

We'd scheduled db repair & optimisation tasks for Saturday night. This was pending since our move to the new server, and we usually keep maintenance work for Sunday a.m's!

Mods, you could add a word of caution in the 'posting etiquette' thread about being careful with the autocorrect feature of some mobile keyboard apps. Sometimes they return words different from the ones intended.

Hi Rehaan,

Sorry for replying late. I wasnt in town. I have not really had a chance to check on some other network. But yea it happens on my home network. Will check it on some other network and report back.
Anyways, today I logged on to tbhp and its still the same problem. But strangely, I can see the pictures in the 'Nissan Scala Automatic (Renault Scala CVT (Automatic) : Official Review)' thread. The images in other threads are still scrambled. Just thought I'd bring this to your notice. Thanks.

Default How to Disable team-BHP Subscription Email Alerts ?

I like the subscription feature, but until 2 weeks back, subscribed threads were visible in the user CP and nowhere else. All of a sudden my email inbox is getting spammed with links to all the threads I have subscribed to, and this happens weekly. Why did this start happening all of a sudden and is this a forum bug ?

Mods, I did not find a section equivalent to post this thread in, so please move to appropriate section if you feel it belongs elsewhere.

Have you checked if your email notifications are turned off?

Go to User CP --> List Subscriptions (from the left hand pane)--> Choose appropriate settings

Also when you post on a new thread, go to advanced menu and choose appropriate subscription settings.

Thanks for that. The funny thing is, till now the email notifications were turned off. They suddenly switched to weekly mode.

Seems like even here, the default is no email notifications. Dunno how everything changed all of a sudden. Maybe a vBulletin update/upgrade/migration issue ?

I would suggest that an "Roadside emergency" thread be created and made sticky in a proper section of the forum. This can serve to those bhpians on the road when they are stranded on the road or when facing situations like this:

Thats a good idea. I support this. If not much of a trouble, it can be placed city wise, that might be all the more helpful.

Hi Rehaan, I also have the same issue of scrambled images. It happens only on one of the laptops I have (Thinkpad X201). It is fine with HP and a netbook. Guess it has something to do with the graphics card-website links. I can see images on other websites on X201 with no issues whatsoever.
For the record, I use BSNL broadband at home. Since I can see it normally on another laptop, I think we can discount the service provider bit?
I thought it was just me

First, get an animated image that fits the size, or create one. Mine is a Samurai swinging the Katana (sword). Still, there are people who ask me whether I owned a Suzuki Samurai.
