Zack tells me to use chrome…. Try that next time you log in… and try posting one or more….
Chrome will also remember your passwords where the safari doesn’t seem to like to…. weird.. but I think maybe safari is an old outdated unsupported program??ColeBModeratorJanuary 21, 2020 at 1:23 pmPost count: 1502
Tried chrome on my iPhone and MacBook. Still no luckJohn JonesKeymasterJanuary 21, 2020 at 1:29 pmPost count: 6326ZackKeymasterJanuary 21, 2020 at 8:58 pmPost count: 114
Ive been digging around a little bit and have found that posts and topics are being flagged, causing some to be put into a ‘pending’ status instead of posted. I created a new account and found my own post in pending after seeing the “You cannot not reply to this post” message.
There are about 140 posts in pending that I had no clue where there, sorry for not knowing this sooner. I am going to put many of those up (lots are copies) over time. It isn’t clear why the spam filter flags legit posts, but it does a good job filtering out the bad stuff. About 9,000 blocked topics/posts, maybe it will learn from the posts I approve.
In any case, posts being flagged and thrown into pending appears the be the root of various issues I’ve read here and heard about at the shop:

- “You cannot reply to this topic” after posting a reply or new topic
- Blank screen on a recent post after clicking on it from the front page
- Posting one or many images at once doesn’t work
- images are too big
I tried to post some pics of my bus this am and nothing went through after I submitted it??
thanks for looking after this ZackColeBModeratorJanuary 21, 2020 at 10:07 pmPost count: 1502
I am now able to post multiple images again! I don’t know what changed… thanks for checking it out zackCorporateModeratorJanuary 22, 2020 at 7:49 amPost count: 818
Using Chrome seems to have solved my sign in problems perfectly. at times I had thought only one pic posted cuz I could only see the first one, but if I just scrolled down (even before posting) all my pics have been there.
Zack, thanks for taking good care of the website!!!
I love going on adventures in our bus!!!ZackKeymasterJanuary 22, 2020 at 8:36 amPost count: 114
Unfortunately I have not found the fix for this yet, so if a post doesn’t go through please do not try again. I will get posts approved overtime, and hopefully find the off switch for the pending folder in the first place.John JonesKeymasterJanuary 22, 2020 at 9:39 amPost count: 6326
Zack… The guys and I were talking yesterday… and were wondering if it would be possible to have a secure Portal where customers could access their logs at any time… and the guys could update it at any time… Get rid of the paper logs… Something they could update the Customers log from their phones any time any where… and customers would be able to check their logs, and keep up with things on more of a day to day bassis than once a week…??
I am looking to back myself out of the program another step….. 😎ZackKeymasterJanuary 22, 2020 at 5:23 pmPost count: 114
That is totally possible! I could make something where the guys post logs to a customers account on the site, and then the customer can view (and pay?) them at any time…. There are details to iron out here so we should talk about it at some pointJohn JonesKeymasterJanuary 23, 2020 at 12:08 pmPost count: 6326
I know you can figure it out Zack… I appreciate your help!!!! 😎ZackKeymasterJanuary 24, 2020 at 8:10 amPost count: 114
Update for posting problems:
I went through the spam folder this morning and accepted all posts by legitimate users – ignoring duplicates. Later today I am going to start deleting the duplicates. By the way, anyone with the moderator or keymaster role can also do this, so feel free to delete duplicates as you see them if you want!
Working through the spam I saw many posts from people who have not been around in awhile, so I bet they were deterred by posts not going through, even after 10 tries. I’m thinking that I’ll send out a mass email to all registered users informing them of exactly what is going on.
Lastly, I want to emphasize what I posted to the front page – Please do not try posting again if it seems like the post didn’t go through. It is a problem on our end, and posting over and over will classify you as a spammer in the eyes of our spam filter. I will be keeping a close eye on the spam and pending folders for now on and will approve flagged posts within 48 hours of posting.
The real fix for this will come with time, I appreciate everyone’s patience.

Go get ’em Zack ! Being an IT guy isn’t the easiest job in the world. Glad you are the one handling this site.C.HamburgParticipantFebruary 1, 2020 at 11:24 pmPost count: 179
I guess my posts are still getting flagged as spam 👎ZackKeymasterFebruary 2, 2020 at 5:47 amPost count: 114
It seems like more of the flagged posts are legit rather than spam – so I have disabled to spam filter. Keep in mind spam posts will be more noteicable because of this, but it is easier to mark replies as spam than it is to approve.Audrey JonesModeratorFebruary 2, 2020 at 8:19 amPost count: 178
I can help be on the look out for spam posts and mark them 👍🏻FranzKeymasterFebruary 5, 2020 at 9:19 amPost count: 3363
You must have changed some of the picture formatting? I notice they are small and grainy until you open them in the picture viewer.ZackKeymasterFebruary 6, 2020 at 6:42 amPost count: 114
Yea, I noticed a thumbnail option in the settings page for images and opted for it. It reduces the load time for pages of replies with many images because the thumbnails are roughly 20 times smaller in size than the originals – and I didn’t want to change the originals. The change is very noticeable on slower computers (such as mobile devices), which take longer to download large images. This change isn’t retroactive by the way, only images from here on out will have thumbnails.
I can (and will) up the quality, it is currently only at 300×300 so there is plenty of room to grow.
