Default Frequently Posted Questions/Bugs/Suggestions


  • Why am I getting logged out after following a link, or why do I have to log in multiple times?
    Be sure you're using our new domain name, www.xtremevbtalk.com.
    If you're still using the visualbasicforum.com URL, the cookies don't
    carry over.

  • Why is the minimum search length 4 characters and how do I search for less?
    Searching requires indexing all words from the minimum length on
    up. To reduce the minimum length from 4 to 3 would require
    significant resources and slow the whole forum down. A method
    that can sometimes work when searching for 3 character terms is
    to use the wildcard * as the fourth character (ex. ADO*, API*).
    Since our migration to vBulletin3, we have added a small number of
    3 character words to the search index. If you have suggestions of
    words that should be included, please send them in a PM to any
    admin.

  • Why can't I post or view attachments?
    You probably have not completed the registration process (or have
    changed your email address without yet confirming) by following
    the activation link in the email you were sent. If you didn't receive
    the email, first check to be sure it didn't get caught in a junk mail
    filter, then send a private message to an administrator to request
    that it be re-sent.

  • Why does it say <insert name of free email provider here> is a banned email address?
    This is to help prevent people from mass-registering or registering
    with fake email addresses. While we don't ban all free email
    services, when we have repeated problems with users using a
    service, we add it to the list. In addition, the server was being
    overwhelmed with bounced mail, mostly from these free email
    services.

  • Why can't I select an avatar (have an image under my username in posts)?
    You need to accumulate 5 posts before you can have an avatar.
    This helps us to lessen server load and keep users who only visit
    a few times from taking up valuable server space with their
    uploaded images. Even if you just made your 5th post, you
    might not be able to set one. There is an update that runs at :45
    after each hour which adds the avatar permissions to anyone who
    now has 5 posts, so the option should be available at your next
    login
    after that point.

  • Why do some people have join dates showing as 1969 or 1970?
    This is a holdover for those people who registered before we
    switched forum software. If your join date is listed as 1969 or
    1970 and you would like it corrected, send a PM to an administrator.

  • Why is there no "Showcase" forum where I could post my finished project?
    The purpose of this site is to help people with programming problems, not to
    showcase their finished projects. However, if you would like to share your
    source code here, especially if it is unique and well-structured/documented
    enough to be a candidate for our Code Library, you are encouraged to post it
    in Tech Discussions.

  • My thread got deleted, or my post/signature/avatar got edited! Where do I complain?
    First, be sure you've read our Posting Guidelines. Then if you still believe
    a mistake has been made, or need explanation about a moderation action,
    send a PM to one of our mods or admins to inquire.

  • I want to suggest that we add a new forum for <insert topic here>.
    Before you make that suggestion, take a look at the threads on that subject.
    Are we getting several questions per day about it? Is it already adequately
    covered by an existing forum? Is it VB-related?

  • I think it would be nice to be able to mark threads as "resolved."
    Yes it would, wouldn't it? But... check out the discussions here.

  • The search engine doesn't work well. How can I search for a phrase or combination of words?
    The vBulletin search engine on this site is fairly limited. We recommend doing a site-specific Google search (use the format:
    site:xtremevbtalk.com "my search phrase"
    on the Google search form).

  • RSS feeds would sure be nice....
    Indeed. See here.
