  1. The assumption is that if you're using your email as your username, it is intentional. If someone accidentally posts private info, we will remove it, but if it's deliberate, then we will change it if requested, but otherwise just leave it (unless it's in violation of the Privacy section of the CS).
  2. This is working as intended. I appreciate that it's annoying to be reminded of your mistakes, but it's also going to stop you from doing it again. That said, your points are fairly old, so I can see merit in them being hidden. The problem is, for some things they should be displayed for eternity, and it's quite hard to change it to hide after a certain date for you (ie not for mods) anyway.
  3. You originally posted this topic in the General Discussion section, but it has been moved to the Audio section so that you will get more responses. General Discussion is only for topics that are tech related but don't fit into any of the other sections.
  4. Moved to Audio
  5. Moved to Graphics Cards
  6. Moved to Photography and Videography. I've merged your topics - please don't double post in future.
  7. @ShepBook and @WayTooMuchCandy When you click "Go back to merchant", where does it take you (ideally the full URL), and is an error message displayed there? EDIT: According to someone on Whirlpool, they were able to solve a similar issue by removing their bank account from their PP account. Could you try that and see if it helps? There are also people saying that adding PP balance also helped.
  8. If someone is using their email as their username then we will change it for them if they request it, but there is no reason why they can't use their email as their username if they want.

  14. You made a whole topic just to post that... But yes, that was before I was a mod.
  15. The majority of the battery usage is rendering gifs, rather than anything that we can control. You can fix that by making a user style for the forum that includes img[src*=.gif] { display: none; } (untested but probably should work, hides all gifs).
