    Highlander issue

    http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?p...eam=iHelpForum

    Here is the mess I'm in now.
    The other day when WCG was having a fit, I was also trying to setup a user account in iHelpForum.
    As a result, I tried to create Highlander, but WCG said it was taken.
    I tried to chance my Gandalf_the_Grey account to Highlander_6596. That took, but nothing worked out right due to WCG's fit.
    So, I returned the WCG account to Gandalf_the_Grey and created an account from scratch as Highlander_6596.
    Now, your iHelpForum page has an entry for three Highlanders.

    Can you help me. This is the correct highlander_6596

    Is this what you need for my WCG badges to get onto my Free-DC banner?
    Got to start somewhere!

    Thanks. I couldn't find an access to my Signature.
    Could you please put this in it...

    Thanks. I'm confused. The Team total does not seem to equal the points of it's members, or am I reading it wrong?

    Thanks, again.

    You might want to make your banner a minimum size to cover the text width.

    Since I can't add my banner to my Signature yet, would you do it for me.

    Thanks

    I'll look at a min width, it's never come up before. If a user has 100 points, then joined a team and now was 200 points, only the second 100 points goes to the team. i.e. a team only gets your points accumulated while ON the team. Do they usually don't match up.

    You should be able to modify your signature now, usually it just needs 10 posts, but I've amended manually.

    Testing if the Signature shows.
    It does.

    Thanks.

    Bok - This might be outside the box, but how do I remove Highlander from the iHelpForum Team? Highlander_6596 is the correct username.
    I can't find a way to logoff and log back on as Highlander at PrimeGrid to remove it from the iHF team. It keeps taking me to the Highlander_6596 account all the time.
    I think I created a Highlander account but I can't get back into it's account to remove it from the iHF team. Frustrating.

    Sorry for picking your brain like this, but it's such a knowledgeable brain.

    Thanks

    It has to be done at the individual projects, which look like both Primegrid AND Collatz http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?p...074c6e2d72cf28

    Change the name and email address if applicable on both those projects and it will sync up (and then I can delete out the combined user)

    I fixed the Collatz project (unTeamed it), but I can not find how to login into the correct PrimeGrid account.

    Edit: Can you tell me what the userid is for the PrimeGrid Highlander account?

    you can see this within the stats - it's 311135, hover over the score on this page http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?p...074c6e2d72cf28

  15. #15
    When I go here...
    http://www.primegrid.com/show_user.php?userid=311135
    It says Team NONE.

    This is Collatz. It shows team as NONE.
    http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/home.php

    Does this mean that the Highlander numbers will clear themselves from iHF?

    Thanks

    Bok - Since both the Projects associated with Highlander have been removed from iHelpForum association, can/would you please remove Highlander from the iHelpForum team's listing.

    Thanks

    Edit: As for the widening of the Banner, this is an example of what I am referring to...


  17. #17
    Bok - Are you unable to make the banner with a default length that will display all of the text?

    I put it live, let me know if there are issues with it. It's basically just setting a min width to be 400pixels. A long name/team would still not fit. I haven't worked on centering the badges at all as that takes a bit more work.

    Yes indeed that would be a bind to do, would need to do something like width=(@text('Yourname/Teamname',font....);
    if (width<400) { width=400; }
    calculate badge_width;
    if (width<badge_width) { width=badge_width+10; }
    badge_centre = (int) (width/2);
    badge_start=badge_centre-((int)(badge_width/2));
    or something like that...
    Easy do work it out here not as easy to put it into practice I'd work on it but my laptop is having major surgury to it's HDD right now!

    You did it, Boss. Now I just need to fill it up again.

    An out-of-the-box question for you all. Is an XenForo based forum capable of updating your banner in a Signature?
    I tried to ask the people at the XenForo forum, but you need a XenForo license to post questions there.
    I know, I tried.

    Thanks

    no idea. Never used it. As long as they allow php in the signature then it would work. If they don't, it won't.

    Some forums don't, I used to make static signatures for those updated every hour or so. (png or jpg)
