Technical Questions


Recommended Posts

I have a question.

How can I apply for the premium membership without PAYPAL account? I have a credit card but I cannot create my PAYPAL Identification right now.They say I have to wait untill next billing paper arrives to me.

If you can check your credit card transactions online, you can retrieve the information that PayPal requires (refer to the PayPal site).

Unfortunately, we can only accept checks from a Canadian bank, the processing fee is too high if they come from other countries.  Of course, you can send cash but that will likely take longer than just waiting for your credit card info - and we don't recommend sending cash through the mail.

wait, I live in the USA around NYC and prefer not to go throughh the trouble of setting up a pay pal thing and do not like to give my credit card info over the internet (even though I know it is pretty safe), so since I do not live that far from Toronto, could I send you the ten dollars in an envelope??? If so what is the adress I should send it to, and how should I go about siging up for a Premium Membership

If you want to sign up and pay with cash, send me a PM indicating so and I will activate your membership immediately.  I will then send you an address to forward your $10 to.

Do you want me to delete your old account or reactivate it and delete the new account?

GB Moderator-

Could you move any topics related to the 2020 bid contest to the GB Events section (off topic folder)...

Because as we get newer cities bidding and so forth, we will probably see lots of new topics being created. (and these sort of topics related to contests should go somewhere else)

Advirtising for the event is alright (such as rules and informing the reader what this is all about), but anything like starting a bid for a city, Website for the bidding city, news about the contest, etc. should go somewhere else.

Thank you for your time!

GBModerator, can the post count handle a 5-digit number? Well, I'm saying this to you is because I'm less than 100 posts away from the barrier. I hope that the Ikonboard-powered site can handle it.

Another question, GBModerator: how long does a topic last before it gets deleted? I'm asking is that some topics in some forums do get deleted while others have been around for a long while.

How would you re-arrange the 2012 Olympic bids area of the forums, once the shortlist is known on May 18th?

We'll decide once we know the shortlist.

On the previous question - we delete the old off-topic forum topics frequently.  The others are left much longer.

Well, I guess it is forum re-organization time. How would it look like?

Can we have a moratorium on the no. of repetitive photos and photo signatures?  Aside from probably taking up toomuch band space, which perphas Mrs. Admin, you are  paying for, it becomes SOOOOO SLOOOOOWWWWW plowing through the endless photos.

I mean Iknow part of the attraction of this website and the subject matter is graphic - the logos, the sites, etc.,  But do we have to be constantly reminded of a winter scene from Pyongchang or that night stadium from Melbourne which might NEVER host another Games?  I mean, if we wanted more photos of SPlit, Croatia, I could look them up online.

Esp. as The Games approach, and posters who are going and/or work for the Games and will want to share their pics, the site is going to be overloaded more than ever.

I suggest you set up moratoria on the # and content of visuals, if only to make this an easy to maneuver site.  Thanks.

Is it possible for you to make the flood control time a little shorter? Like one minute instead of two? It get's kind of frustrating when you have a good idea to type and it says you have to wait longer.
