Default [All XDA Members] Requests to Moderators and Admins

Rather than sending a PM to an individual Moderator, please feel free to ask questions in need of Moderator or Admin assistance. We will all be monitoring this thread, and someone will reply without much delay. In order to hopefully address some of the possible questions, please review the following points which frequently come up:


  • Posting in Development Sections - There are restrictions in place that do not allow any member with a registration date past late-2009 to post in Development forums until making 10 useful, constructive posts in other areas. This has been widely successful, and will not change, so please do not request we modify it. Also do not stop by and post one or two words in an attempt to +1 your count. We'll see it and delete it.
  • New Forum Requests
  • Operator or Country Flag Incorrect/Missing
  • Tapatalk XDA App Issues
  • Username Change - Send a PM to MikeChannon, the_scotsman, egzthunder1, pulser_g2 or NotATreoFan. Be sure to include what you would like your name changed to, and also why you want it changed. Providing that information in the initial PM will save us a reply asking for it. There is no official limit on name changes, but keep it reasonable or you'll be stuck.
  • Unable to thank anyone in the Off Topic forum - The Thanks button has been disabled in OT.
  • Large Signatures - Come across a member with an exceptionally large signature? Use the RP system and select "Other - Non-urgent" from the dropdown.


If you are not a moderator or admin on the forums, please do NOT respond to any posts in the thread. This includes the incredibly tempting reply to a 10 post spammer pointing out that they're about to lose what posts the do have. Given the overall size of XDA and potential ramifications, we need to ensure that only people authorized to speak on our behalf do so. Please, and thank you in advance.







This thread hereby replaces (requests) From the Users to the Mods & Admins, which has been closed and archived. There will be zero tolerance for off topic posting in here. Regardless of forum reputation, warnings and/or infractions will be issued to anyone disregarding such a simple request. There will also be no flaming of members posting in here. Report it, and move along.

 


Contact the Moderator Committee with any questions or concerns regarding forum moderation.
Please MENTION me if you require semi-prompt assistance. I may not see posts for several hours.

I saw this thread. Did a (search url edited out cause all threads were deleted off xda) for the app to read about it. Third hit is this thread on xda. Which lead to (his site edited out also) Which contains dl links that lead to ads or sign ups on other forums. And also this other thread on xda.

There's just so many rule violations in that trail, it's mind boggling.

It's all hacks to get free content from in game credits that take away from the developer's pocket. Can someone take care of this?

My request. Such a thread to be created in every forum Q&A section and to have people redirecting questions there.
Pros.
Keeps forums cleaner
People learn quicker
People that are helping get kudos
People that are helping learn a lot along the way
Common thread for many people so it helps to promote fiendly atmosphere as people get to know each other

Cons.
None really, as long as noobs are not spoon fed.

I have a weird Bug.. Subscribed Threads widget..
Its happening only from around 24 hours / so.. The problem is when i click and open a thread which is shown at widget in "threads" middle tab. The thread is still being shown and it has not got any new/unread posts..

Say i have 4 new/unread thread. I open 3 at the same time. After reading them, i open 4th one. The 4th one will still show the same 4 threads as unread. Even though no new posts were made there.. If i open a new xda page from my bookmarked link, the widget doesnt show those 4 threads and it is properly updated, as it should.
Tried clearing cache etc. usual troubleshooting methods done.
Chrome latest build .. Ubuntu 11.10 32 bit OS..

Also a Request/Suggestion.. Is it possible to add button under more info/ inside more info button for "MY WORKS DOWNLOADS" kind of feature..
It should contain download links to their works/ download links for github/ any other repo sites.. Or it can contain links to their threads whicg will be more value to all? Only some sites can be made available to add so that spamming will be avoided?
And thank widget is very useful.. I wish it was online again.. may be its under improvements / maintenance as its in beta stage.. I will ask in the thread made for that..

@Admins.. When same user posts in same thread after his/her own post regardless of time of posts.. Is it possible to get an option like add it to older post / as a new post option? it could be added as a check box option as show your signature / quote message in reply.. It would help a lot of users as sometimes this way helps to bump the thread and also keep it clean by not posting by same user again.. It will also help users who wanted to post it as a seperate post..
As i had a really bad time one time.. I was trying to release a new kernel version in seperate post with title on that post.. But it kept joining to my previous post which was a reply to another person for his bug report.. I fell this option will help many users..

Also, I wrote a guide [GUIDE]DONT KNOW SOMETHING? Check here first! in SGY forum.. And i have given links to this thread and some other useful threads of about xda section in 2nd page first post in that thread of mine.. Is that OK? i hope its not a problem! I have given one line description there to avoid problems..

EDIT: There is another bug.. 10-Post Warning Thread by vanessaem is not possible to see in app. It gives blank screen.. All other threads are fine. Only this thread. This is a sticky thread. So it should be more helpful if it is visible in app also. i know app bugs should be reported in XDA app thread.. But it happens in tapatalk too.. I'm not sure its only me or others have this bug..


EDIT 2: Is there a possibility to make subscribed thread/forum widget to show more than one sub/forum under 3rd tab "forum" section? Currently it shows only 1 sub section and i have 3 sub-section subscribed. Also forums as a whole can be made subscribe-able instead of just sub-forums? as in app it is possible to do?

^^^In regards to the 10 post warning thread, click on the writing and it will show up. It's just because the writing is darker black so it won't show up on that theme of the app. Mine's the same.


I've been approved by Snowflake. Jealous?
I'm subscribed to too many threads so I may not notice your reply. To make sure I do, quote my post or add "@KidCarter93" to your reply."

Yes, you are right.. I forgot to check in light theme as I always switch to dark as soon as I install the app. He has just set it to color=black.. So i couldnt see.. I checked editing my own post like this and it had same behavior..

Question Can i attach Official Firmwares?

I wanted to attach parts Official Firmware files in one of my posts. The firmware is Stock Android 4.0.4 for my rk2918 tab and vendor is Rockchip. I'm planning to attach boot, kernel, recovery, misc, bootloader, etc(all files except system.img which is 480MB in size). All of them less than 8mb in size and hence within attachment size limits. Is it okay to post it here at XDA. I've seen people post mods and unofficial firmwares here, but i'm not sure about the Official ones. One of my fellow XDAian and modder told that all Android firmware is GPL licensed and so okay to post. If not which parts can i post?
Offline(almost!),due to Xams.I'll be back soon to Cube the Fun.

Device List
INTEX iTab
OS - Official Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich
Rooted! (How?)
chipset- Rockchip rk2918

Nokia 6303i Classic
OS - Nokia OS/ Series40 6th Ed
hacked/rooted/jailbroken(what do you call a nokia device with elevated privileges?)

We prefer these files to be posted offsite, at a site like Mediafire, or DevHost. If for no reason other than stressing our download server.
