The link I had saved for the members map no longer connects.
Has it disappeared?
I just moved to the Boston area and would like to find some local players.
If you are one, please leave a private message.

I'm north, in central NH. Yes we have a few members from the Boston area. I think the map works, but it is slow to load. That is the function of how it works apparently. But last time I tried it, it worked. Edit -- I just tried it and it does work -- but it might take about a full minute to load. Once you get loaded (lol) you can click on names.

PS anyone who is not on here, you just need to add your zipcode -- or the zipcode of the room you generally play out of.

One of these days we need to rewrite that page so it can load quicker!

Repeating my recent request - can you put the font option and font size back in operation? It would be a great help to me. Thanks -

Hey Bill, I am not sure what changed on your end but nothing was done to the font options. I am not sure exactly what you mean to be honest. I will help if I can though, I looked back at your pm and still not sure what the issue is, let me know, thx!

I think what he is "looking" for is a view of the forum that is like a larger print edition -- I feel his pain. Bill I am wondering on what device you are reading the forum? You might be able to change the display size on your device??

Be nice, if the zip codes referenced a home table there or not....an icon would be a nice touch.

When I am typing a response to a post, as I'm doing now, I'm not able to use a larger type, as I used to do. The bold option is working, and the italic, but the font family and font size are not. I was asking if they could be put back in action. I can also underline, so some options are working.

if you are trying to change the font size of the forums in general and increase it, you can just use your chrome or browser settings to do that. Upper right under settings choose to ZOOM. Or you can hold the control button ion and use the mouse wheel (short cut) to lower and raise the font size.

As far as while you are typing, like Jimmy B said you can do that like you always have

Here is Book Antiqua in 26 pt.


Here is courier in 22 pt.


Let me know if I am missing what you are saying still, thanks!

where is the link to the member map?
i cant find it
sticky in member's section:

as Steve pointed out, super slow...if I were to hard code it, it would be much faster but only be as up to date as every time we hard code new values (zip codes) in. Currently its generating that page "on the fly" by querying the database to see what zipcodes people have entered.

Good question. I think we can only see members online and the trophy points like most likes, most posts, etc...plus it shows all the new members.

There is a setting to allow all members to be displayed but currently that setting is off because in the admin section it says something like "warning - this will impact the performance of your forums" so we chose to avoid it.

A real dilemma, ck. An inch above the line I am typing, there are indicated 7 options for the appearance of my post. When the new format was new, I could access them all - to put some character in my comment and to make them easier to see. I didn't need to use any maneuver like you have suggested - just click on the symbol I wanted - and I'm not referring to my view of other posts in any thread, only to the response I'm working on. I note that Jimmy B seems to access them without trouble - I can, also, except for the font style and font size. You're my guru - do you think it could be in my machine? Thanks -

You might try using a different browser.
If you can access those with a different browser, it might be something as simple as a settings permission in the original browser.

Hmm, I really don't know..

Here is what mine looks like when I am replying:




You are saying that the "A" (which controls font family) and the "T" (which controls font size) are not present along your BBCode bar? Can you take a screen grab and post it so I can see what you see?

To do that, you can use snipping tool if you have experience with it. The easiest way is probably this:

1) make sure you have exactly what you want on your screen (and nothing personal that you don't want others to see)

2) hold in ALT and press "PRINT SCREEN"

3) go to this thread in the reply box, make sure your cursor is blinking in the box and then paste it (by holding in CTRL and press the letter "V")

Let me know if you cant get it!
