    I seem to have lost the notification flag in the top right corner somehow? Using Firefox browser.

    Right now I had no access to this forum, when I was using an American VPN. After disabling VPN it worked again (my current location is in Europe). Did anyone else have similar issues?

    There is normally an arrow at the extreme right hand top corner.. if it is pointing down click on it to reveal the notifications menu.

    If it is not there check your profile settings and make sure notifications are activated.

    For several minutes I had issues of access https://www.russiadefence.net with loading screen and number. Then I was logged out, had to log in again and now it seems to be working normally. Is it normal technical issue or something else? Forum Technical Issues - Page 9 96246610

    The US and the Ukraine Palau, and Canada voted to allow promotion of Nazi propaganda because they claimed it was a freedom of speech issue... countries like Germany abstained, so I guess they can't really ban anything because of the freedom of speech issue now...

    New Zealand also abstained along with most US allies.

    The record of the vote is here:

    https://digitallibrary.un.org/record/820132?ln=en

    Where a Y in front of the country means they voted to ban nazi glorification and propaganda, with 132 yes votes, and 4 N for no, and 51 US allies with A that abstained. 6 countries did not vote.

    Interesting the western world has no problem with nazi propaganda, but bans RT and Sputnik and other alternative voices.

    Not really.

    When a member is deleted their posts all convert to "guest", which you might have noticed in various places... however if you are trying to hide your tracks you would have to go through and manually delete every post you made... which you can't, but also every person who replied using your username with the quote of what you said and their response.

    Essentially deleting your account would remove your name from the posts you made, but any replies to what you said would link your posts to the user name anyway so even if I went though and deleted every post you made and then deleted your username there would still be many of the things you said on the forum in the posts of other users where they responded to you.

    I made the mistake of deleting members accounts before starting to delete their posts, which meant their accounts reverted to Guest accounts so I couldn't find their posts to delete them.

    It is interesting that I only get requests to delete accounts from North America and Europe...

    Send me a PM if you want to discuss this further. Smile

    I have removed the quote button from the forum as it was being misused and the alternative would be to ban quite a few people, which I never like doing.

    Some of you might have noticed a new addition to the screen menu for the desktop version of this site. From left to right there is Home and Gallery and then the new edition before FAQ is Latest Images which displays recently posted images you can scroll through and click on to jump to conversations.

    I am not sure this has been added to the mobile edition but is worth looking for.

    I suspect that mainly happens in some western free democratic countries if you know what I mean.

    Constantly having to log back on happens every time you get a major OS or web browser update and is normal.
