Several times I have tried updating my original post <which took over 16 hours to be approved) about PUC but it needs to be approved first, then never gets approved? I have had over 5 posts in the past few months simply deleted. Why? I only post the truth about the situation, no attacks on any individuals or institutions. What's up 440?

This has been going for months now, I really dislike gonk but if I can't can't post current updates about a sketchy school I suppose I can go post there.

New poster accounts require the first three posts to be approved by a moderator.

Congratulations, after 'for months now' you have hit the three post minimum and now are a full member of the forum.

Yes, as playboy mentioned, first three posts need to be approved- this also goes for editing the first three.

Posting in the middle of the night will mean it may take a while for approval. Maybe you’ll get lucky and it’s a slow night in Ming’s and Playboy is on his phone, but chances are we’re all on the piss and will approve it once we wake up in the morning.

Been having some issue but they are hopefully sorted out. You probably need to clear your browser cache, as well.

Well on the bright side, something's happening! That we finally get HTTPS is good news.

Yikes, all youtube clips have gone AWOL from the tunes thread. This feels like the end of the world. I will gladly forego the mythical like button in exchange to having our AV back.

OK, I see what the problem is. The YOUTUBE button embeds the videos using HTTP rather than HTTPS and that has been blocked (not actually at my instruction, but after the difficulties I had dealing with third party tech support, I'm not inclined to change anything. I can most likely fix this and similar occurrences by editing the database directly, but I need to see where to to either configure or where to change the setting or code that uses HTTP so future uploads work. Due to tall the time I lost dealing with the HTTPS switchover, none of this is going to happen for at least a few days.

Thankfully, the image inserter uses HTTPS and is still working.

I thought you were paid to maintain the site and make it run smoothly.

Now there is third party tech support and you don’t have time? I don’t understand. Isn’t it your job?

That's the kind of well-known problem you anticipate instead of fixing it later on... Earth to Buscador and his external service minions, real or imaginary, we are writing the year 2020... Must have been more than a decade since I first read about it.

Have you no heart? He worked a couple of hours over a three day period sending 40+ emails. He needs to rest now.

Think of all the time that was lost.
