Because I couldn't find a thread for general questions, and I have one, I post here a new threat.

Q: Can I "upload" my posts from the time I was a guest? So I can easier find games which I didn't finish yet and from which I forgot the names.

Sorry, I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly. Do you mean that the system shows your earlier entries as guest with your username/avatar etc. as registered member?
If so, I don't think it is possible.
Or do you mean something else?

If you want to merge the posts what did you do, when you were a quest, then it's unfortunately not possible.

i want to get avatar but the 1 i want is saved in microsoft word & it keeps saying file to big

Mistery
06-07-2006, 21:07:42
Maybe you could convert it into a picture file and resize it? Avatars can be maximum 100x100 pixels.
I have no idea how the file in Word looks therefore it is difficult for me to provide you detailed help. Is it a picture within a Word document? Or is it a drawing made in Word?

Please be patient, bige92. Games that are submitted, must be checked by the administrator and this can take time.
However, you can post games in the new games area directly.
The will be moved to the corresponding category by GamersHood, but meanwhile the can be played and discussed.

AnarchxtHippo27
06-17-2006, 18:55:05
This doesn't need to be read, I'm just letting out my frustration and seeing if anyone else has the same problem as me.

I just submitted three games to the site that were all deleted with the message, " It's already here, next time do a search before posting. "

Why am I angry?
Because either I'm clearly missing things, typing the game names in wrong, or my computer and/or internet is being retarded.
I typed in all three game names, and for one or two of them, games came up, but not the same game. For a third, nothing showed up. So basically, I did the search and nothing came up. But they're on the site.

Does anyone else have this problem with the search box, or is it just me?

Mistery
06-17-2006, 19:01:49
I don't know what kind of search you have done. E.g. if you choose "Advanced search" and type in "green room" and let the system search only for game titles, you should get this (look at picture: and as you see the already posted game shows up). Maybe you didn't use a whole search over the forums which is necessary.
Searching for titles with only 3 letters is not possible, for Kao I know that it is already here (and therefore didn't mention to do a search for it because I know that it is not possible to find it by searching for the title).

Eternal Becky
06-17-2006, 19:01:51
Green room is in the downloadable games section and if you search for hotel, you'll find Deadends hotel. I didn't find Kao either but the other two were there :)

AnarchxtHippo27
06-17-2006, 19:04:32
I typed Green Room and got nothing - maybe I just missed it; it gave me like 4 pages of useless things, I don't know.
Kao didn't show up, but you said 3 letter searches don't, so that could be why.
DeadEnds Hotel I typed as Dead End Hotel. It came up with the keywords "Dead" and "Hotel" in a joke forum, but I would think it would still show up anyway; I guess not (at least for me).

Mistery
06-17-2006, 19:11:47
I went to advanced search, typed in "hotel" and chose to search over the whole forums but only for game titles and got this:

AnarchxtHippo27
06-17-2006, 19:16:35
I used regular search. And again, I typed something different in. =/
It's amazing the difference a couple of words can make.

Mistery
06-17-2006, 19:42:54
Yes, these things can happen and we only wanted to remind you of making a search because you posted 3 games that were already here. We did not attack you for that. So for the future, try your best to make a search, and don't take it personally if we say that the game is already here. Knowing which games are already posted comes also with knowing the GamersHood forums. Also I did post 2 games that were already here earlier (when I was not too familiar with this forums), so don't worry, it's not a tragedy ;-)

AnarchxtHippo27
06-18-2006, 02:50:36
Haha I know, thanks. I was just annoyed that i had typed it and it didn't show up for me. At first I thought i was just going crazy. :-P I still can't believe it happened 3 times in five minutes though. *Shakes head* But i have that luck with computers hahah.

what means nerd?

Mistery
06-25-2006, 13:54:58
Nerd in its origin means a person with a high IQ who is very competent with technical things, especially pc's (pc freak) but who is often alone without social contacts.
This word can have either a negative or a positive touch depending on the persons/groups who use the word.

Is there a way of increasing the MB of a photo you have scanned in, without changing the size of it.

Most of my photo have a MB between 2.7 and 3.5 MB. And when I try to increasing the MB through smaller the size of it (so I can post it here on Gamershood) the pic gets even smaller than my avatar.

Also see that some members copy, the webpage there are on, as a picture and save them in there computer. Or is this only possible because of the digital camera?

Mistery
07-29-2006, 10:10:15
I suppose you don't mean increase (making bigger) of the MB but rather decrease (making smaller) it.
Making the file size smaller will make your picture usually either smaller or a worse quality. However if the picture is in .bmp format, you can save it as .jpg and the file size will become much smaller without change of the picture size itself.
If you change the picture size, it doesn't have to become small like your avatar. I'm not sure what software you use for resizing your pictures as there are so many. But you can even use Paint that is usually on every pc:
Open a picture in Paint, then choose the 4th menu on the top (again, I don't know in what language your Paint is) but it should be called Image. Then choose there the second option (Stretch/Skew). There you can give the percent for width and length. Make sure that you choose the same percent for both (e.g. 80% and 80%). What you choose depends how much smaller the picture should become. Just try it out.

For taking pictures from websites:
You can rightclick the picture with your mouse and choose "save as..." and save it to your pc.
For screenshots (e.g. of Flash games, websites) of pictures that you can't just save to your pc, you click "Alt" + "PrtScn" (print screen) buttons, this makes a temporary copy, then open a picture software (like Paint, Photoshop etc.) and paste it there ("Ctrl" + "v").

Hope that was more or less clear. If you have questions just ask.

Adventure
07-30-2006, 01:31:35
Yes I mixed decrease and increase up and you explained very clear. I bet you are a good teacher.

I think I am lucky because all my scanned photo's are saved in Paint (.bmp format), so I only had to change it into a .jpg format (Microsoft Photo Editor program) and decrease the size just a bit. It worked. Finally! Thank you Mistery.

Also the screenshots worked perfectly. :wink:

Mistery

I dont know what happened, but when my hubby were googling on the internet, sudden two bars were missing (menu bar and the bar all down to the screen (where also the start button is)). I think he by accident close them, but we both don't have an idea to get them back. Does anyone know how i get them back?

I tried to put a screen shot here, but it doesn't work.

Mistery
07-31-2006, 17:18:07
Got to check it Adventure.

But for the task bar on the bottom: Does it show up if you press the "start" button on your keyboard?
If it does, then rightclick it, choose the last option. There you should be able to uncheck the option to make it invisible.

Question for the menu bar: Is there anything on the top of the page that you can see right now?

Adventure
07-31-2006, 17:20:53

Mistery
08-20-2006, 15:29:39
No, I don't have this.

Did you only download them or already installed them?
You need to install GTK+ first and then install The Gimp:


1) Upon unzipping and running the GTK+ setup file you are confronted wih the following dialog. Simply click next, agree to the license, and read the on-screen intructions.

2) After it is installed, you should run the file "gimp-2.0.1-setup.exe to install GIMP.

Mistery
08-20-2006, 16:08:14
Okay, did you download the windows versions of GTK+ and of gimp?

Did you unzip the GTK+ file and install it?
After this you should look for a file that says gimp***.exe
(*** for the version number) and click it to install gimp.

bige92
08-20-2006, 20:00:54
ok then.. how do i "unzip" the gtk+

Mistery
08-20-2006, 20:06:42
On most pc's Winzip is already installed, so double clicking should unzip GTK+. However if it doesn't work, here is a free program to unzip files (files in .zip format are compressed to make them smaller, so you need to "unzip" them or better said to reverse the compression before you can use them).

http://www.camunzip.com/

(Sorry that you have so much problems to install GIMP)

08-20-2006, 20:37:15

You should be able to unzip files either by doubleclicking them or by rightclicking them and then choose unzip.

When somebody posts a thread that’s already posted, 99 percent of the times it just gets binned. But in some cases it gets deleted, however there is nothing in it which is against the rules. I know it is not important, but I wonder why got some of those threads deleted instead of binned?

Mistery
01-14-2007, 17:08:02
I am not quite sure what exactly you are referring to. Is there a specific thread of you that got deleted? :?

I checked back all the deleted threads from the last few weeks with the result that threads of double posted games got only deleted, if they have been submitted several times within a short time by the same person. It was in such cases, when the poster posted the threads in a specific game category and didn't know that it went into moderation. It didn't show up for him/her, and the poster posted it again 1-2-3 times. One thread was binned with the notification that the game is already posted, and the rest of the same threads by the same person deleted.

But if there is a specific thread you are referring to, I can take a look into it, might be that in exceptional cases a thread got deleted and not only binned, if this happened, probably because there were so many spam threads to be deleted, and in the process of moving into the bin and deleting, it got deleted aswell by "accident".

GamersHood

I am only deleting spam. 5-6 hours ago i updated gamershoods server&#180;s software, maybe then something happened and your thread disappeared, however i hope there is a better explanation.

Adventure

No, it weren’t threads that I had posted, but wherein I had posted, so that’s why I noticed it.

The first time I noticed a thread was deleted without a clear reason, was when Kyle and I posted a thread for the same game at the exact same time. (Super Sneaky Spy Guy 5, post date 25 November 2006) Well I was about one second quicker and that is probably why his thread got deleted and not mine.
The second case I noticed was about a thread which Bread posted in the game development forum (It was yesterday or the day before yesterday). It was a thread for the biography of your character on GHP, which was obvious similar to “Biography of your character on GH Planet”. I don’t know if someone posted something bad after me, the threads were both just suddenly gone, deleted. I know it’s not really important, but I thought it was weird and it made me curious about it.

But thank you both for your replies. :)

If you are talking about the GH biography thread that was created few days ago then it was deleted by me. It was not necessary since the thread already exists and whenever a similar thread to GH biography was created it was binned but this time it was deleted. I have sent a PM to Bread and explained him about it.

Mistery
01-14-2007, 21:55:31
Yup, and I found the Super Sneaky Spy Guy aswell, deleted by Becky.
Well, you both already knew that it was "double" posted and Kyle said "delete it".
We usually just bin threads and add a notice for the poster with a link where the game is already posted.
In that case it wasn't necessary to leave it there for Kyle to see cause she knew that you posted it at the same time :)

Hope that clears your questions, Adventure.

If there is anything left to clear, please let us know :)

Btw, another reason for disappearing new threads can be, that they get merged with already existing ones.

Adventure
01-14-2007, 21:59:42
Thank you Becky. :) And sorry for my curiosity. I thought it was a bit strange and since I questioned it before, I thought let I just ask this time.

I was just wondering if the list of subscriptions in your UCP had any purpose on this forum? I mean I don’t see a reason why anybunny would want a subscription for a game thread and it seems you can’t do anything with it. Guess the answer is no. :P

@Becky, it is indeed odd that some members don't receive your PMs lately. :? Hope that problem is fixed in the mean time. :)

Edit:
Since it has been 4 days ago that I posted my question and there is still no answer I guess I was asking for the familiar way and so I think the answer was indeed no. That is also a method to find things out. :P

Hi, this is my first post, I have a problem... I seem to not have the ability to post threads. I tried posting in the new games part, but when I do, it comes up with:

boredgamer, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?

- Use the Report Bad Post Button under their avatar to the right of the "lamp" that shows if members are online/offline
- Send a PM to a moderator, and include the link to that post.

Well, there is a Profile Picture, look at here:
http://gamershood.com/forum/member.php?u=17811

If you would like to have an avatar (pic under your name), you need to choose a much smaller one.
For avatars, these are the criteria:
The maximum size of your custom image is 80 by 80 pixels or 19.5 KB (whichever is smaller).
To get an avatar, go to User CP, choose "Edit Avatar", and either choose one of the default pictures, or upload one that fits the criteria mentioned above.

There are programs that can recover permanently deleted files. I don't know of any that are free though.

Damar
04-14-2008, 13:03:54
If you are using ie you use file menu import export then follow the wizard if it is Firefox :) they are found in cookies.txt in your profile directory of firefox and you can just replace it with your saved cookies...

Adventure
04-15-2008, 08:48:39
@Jack, even if there is such a free program, I prefer to don't make use of it, because with deleting my temp. internet files, I also deleted a whole lot of other things. Plus downloading the program, restore all the files and delete them all again beside the cookie would probably take just as much time as going through all the levels again. I was still working on chapter 1, level 37 or something. So restarting the game wouldn't be that bad. I just hoped there was a simple way to reverse the change of the cookie. But thank you for your reply anyway. :)

@Damar, I am afraid I can't follow you. :shy: I really don't know where I can find my profile directory, unless you mean the cookie folder under privacy. But so far I know I can't replace or copy anything to it.
I am using IE aswell FF, but I used FF when I played oddpawn

Mistery
04-15-2008, 10:33:33
For FF, you find your profile like this:
C:\Documents and Settings\<Windows user name>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile folder>

In this profile folder, you should find the cookies.txt as Damar mentioned. You can copy-paste it to another folder as backup, and then copy it back to this folder if necessary.


Note, that the Application Data folder is a hidden folder. To show hidden folders, open Windows Explorer and choose "Tools → Folder Options → View (tab) → Show hidden files and folders".

(If you still have problems finding it, then just make a system search for cookies.txt, make sure that you choose the option that it also searches hidden files.)

All I can think of for restoring cookies without using a software would be to make a system restore, and set the status of your system back to an earlier point. But with that new things that you have created would be lost. :S
And I suspect you wouldn't want to do a system restore anyway if not really necessary.

Just btw, this is a free software to create profile backup for Mozilla products (although I haven't tried it, so I can't tell more about it): http://mozbackup.jasnapaka.com/

Damar
04-15-2008, 10:33:49
I will guess you are using windows xp if not let me know :)

go the start button..then click on run and type this in

%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\

then ok..a windows will open with the firefox profiles if you have more than one just chose yours..then you should be able to replace your cookies.txt file with the one you have already saved

hope that explains a bit better :)

Edit: Mystery beat me to it :)

Mistery
04-15-2008, 10:36:18
Yes, you are right Damar, this would be another way to get to the cookies :)

It doesn't work. :S I made a back up from cookie (text document), deleted all my temp. internet settings (and more), replaced the new version of cookie with my saved one, but once I move around on the internet it automatically will be replaced with a new one. I am sure of this because the saved cookie file has a size of 6 KB and the new one only 3 KB. I tried it several times but my PC doesn't accept it. :(

I use CCleaner to get rid off all what I don't need, but even when I uncheck the setting cookies the date of the folder %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ will be removed. Of course I can decide to never remove my temp. internet settings, but if I do this, after some time, I won't be able to log out anymore from this site and because of security reasons I don't think this is wise. So I have to delete my temp. internet files once in a while.

Maybe I can better give up on this riddle. :sad:

Edit: Just thinking.. perhaps I will have more luck when I use IE to play oddpawn.

Hmm, you can set the options of Firefox, what private data should be deleted.
Have you already tried just to let delete the history, the secure connection etc. but not let delete your cookies?
You could still remove cookies that you don't need by using the cookie manager of FF, and leave all that are connected to the riddle.
Just an idea :S

No, I haven't tried that yet and I didn't know this was possible with FF too. I know this is possible with IE, so that's why I thought to give it a try with IE instead. (I just recently started to use FF actively)

Edit: I just saw that CCleaner is designed for IE. That's why it always delete all my FF cookies even when I uncheck the cookie option. I decide to play the riddle with IE, because I otherwise would have to delete all my private internet data manually (from IE aswell from FF) and I don't seem to be able to replace the current FF cookie.txt with an older saved version.

Now I only hope it isn't a cookie which makes it impossible for me to log out after some time. :S
I will try to back up the specific gameon cookie from oddpawn once more and hope now I use IE it will work. Otherwise I will have to keep all my IE cookies like forever, since oddpawn never seems to end. :S

Anyways, thank you a whole lot again, Damar and Mystery. :hug2: Because of you two, I could localize the problem. :)

If you click where it says "private messages" in the box at the top right hand corner, you can get to your messages from there. :D

I know this may sound stupid but is there a way I could download the site onto something, and it would have updates and everything? I have a computer in my room but it doesn't have Internet!:( Just wondering, cause it would save A LOT of hassle.:)

EscapeGirl

To my knowledge you wouldn't be able to access Gamershood offline in "real time." I think there may be an option to access previously viewed pages offline, but not that you can download. Unfortunately, you do need the internet for this. :( Unless someone else has knowledge out there that's different than my own - which is always possible - I don't believe you can. (I'm not the best with all things computer. ;))

Adventure

So far I know, it is not possible to download the site onto your PC.
Although you can of course save an certain page onto your PC, but it wouldn't be updated, it only is a copy of the page as it was on the moment you saved it.

Damar
04-22-2008, 19:33:32
Technically it is possible to download and save a website to your pc and browse it as if online..you could use something like HTTrack which is free to do this..but as Escapegirl and Adventure have said it would not update without internet access and would take an incredible amount of space up..
so would in the end not be worth it..would it not be possible to use a wireless connection to get access in your room..is all i can think of

Wow, never know this was possible. I googled a bit around and read the wiki article about it. It's interesting. I wonder how long it would take the web crawler to download everything. Thanks for this info, Damar. :)

How did the terms Google Spider and Yahoo! Slurp Spider originate? When viewing Whos Online I see those quite a bit mingled with Guests.

Adventure
05-06-2008, 21:55:08
I am not sure if I understand your question correctly, but those are just bots who gather information for the search engines google and yahoo.
If you mean how the software of this site recognize them as bots, probably because the host of the IP they use share this info. In example lj513391.crawl.yahoo.net

Question about managing attachments. Since all the new bells and whistles arrived in GHtown my posted pictures default to thumbnails. However I see new pics posted that are just like they always were...fullsize. Where is that magic button?

Crimsonthread
09-17-2008, 15:58:11
It depends on how you include the picture. If a picture is attached to your message (i.e. uploaded from your computer), it will show as a thumbnail. If you embed the picture with tags, it will show original size. :)

RBS
09-17-2008, 16:10:17
I have always done the former method in your answer. Have to practice on the latter.

Thanks Crimson :)

is it possible to put pictures from your computer into your messages when commenting on someones profile cause you know how on some threads it has the option of managing attachments, but on the profile ones it doesn't?

Adventure

It's possible by uploading the picture via an image host (i.e. Imageshack, Photobucket). Then copy and past the link to here and put it in image tags.

Is there a thread about the elections? Whether be Canadian or American?

DuckBoy
10-04-2008, 05:13:11
try a search for politics or elections. I don't see one though. Politics is a hot button topic.

Adventure
10-04-2008, 11:33:42
We have a politics chat thread:
http://www.gamershood.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1124
So far it mainly have been used for jokes about politicians, but it can be used for serious conversations too.

Up to the moderaters here but honestly... I feel that Gamershood is focused, and should be, more on games and riddles. I honestly don't see the need for a serious political debate on a games forum but that's just my tiny opinion. The Web is full of other sites to discuss such.

As I said... Politics is a hot button.. if you get into serious debates- tempers can and will flare (from experience).

Just my thoughts on it.

Seems to me that if there is already a politcs chat thread then that should be used- sounds like most people here are not interested in the serious side of it.

someguy
10-04-2008, 18:44:18
I'm saying, yeah this place is for games and chat, but I've seen serious sides of it.
I think there should be a thread for serious politic disscusions, so it's not degraded by the jokes of the other thread. Tempers won't flare on here, because we know better than to argue with one another on here.

Adventure

Sure, go ahead. :)

@Duckboy, thank you for your input and concerns. :) If it would go out of control, we simply will close the thread. But we have a few more "hot button" topics, and so far they too didn't get out of control.

I didn't get the post for a discussion, it was just a question that i asked Is there a political thread. yes or no

but you may know me as a person who likes to debate. So even if it's a hothead topic then really that's just the person's problem, (reminds me of CNN or Larry King type program where you see a split screen of 4 different people talking back and forth not letting the others speak) well this is not Larry King, and even though people might feel strong about their parties it is still a forum where people talk one at a time;
and any abuse/harrassment is not tolerated,

but my question is answered i believe so thanks

I wouldn't go so far to say "tempers won't flare on here.. ". You just never know what can happen. I've been on other sites, maillists, groups and quite a few of them there's been the ideal of "Oh we could never argue or we'll never see tempers flare" yet- some time down the road it happens. It's human nature... its possible.

Never say never.

The trick is moderating and learning to debate properly and well (even then tempers can flare...)

And FWIW... I HAVE seen bad tempers on this site in the past in the GAMES section.

Adventure- good to know. I've not seen those as I rarely go into the chat section here. Plus the mods here seem to be pretty on top of things.

RBS

I don't understand a site like Gamershood needing a forum for such topics...its a refuge to find games.

I do understand the chances are very good of meeting intriguing people (members) and you can private message your favorite folks anything.

It's true that the GamersHood Forums main purpose are games and help with games. If I would answer the question if we need others thread with yes, I just could go ahead bin the whole sub-forum Chit Chat with the exception of the forum games, the creativity games, and the offline games chat. But as you all most likely have noticed members too like to chat with each other about all sort of things and too like to show their creativity on other fronts than only game related. If one of the topics members like to chat/discuss about is politics, elections or death penalty, then they are free to do so as long if everyone respects others their opinions, and it doesn't violate the forum rules. To answer the question if we need threads to discuss such topics, of course we don't need them per se. Personally I am not very fond of them, that is also why I don't take part of them, though I too think it can be interesting to read other their opinion about these matters, and I too can understand that some members like to discuss also more sensitive topics besides the many more lightly chat topics we have. Of course you can state the chit chat thread serves purpose to talk about anything, but many people dislike the more serious topics in that thread. To come to a conclusion I don't see a good reason to deny members the right to talk about politics or elections, while they are free they to talk about almost anything else. Just my opinion.
