Yes this can be done here but you need to send a PM to an administrator.

Link this topic in your PM and send to either

Hi

Thank you. I have sent a pm to one of them, only that newbies cannot insert links ... . If I had known this before, I would not have got involved in the Oracle forum discussion referred to in my post, but I think the discussion there is relevant to the administrators here, since some big changes are being planned for all Oracle products' forums, which might affect the future of this forum & the way it is run, which without the VB forum administrators' active participation in their implementation might not be good for those who use & value VB & its forums.

Regards
Kon Tiki

Suggestion on the emails the forum sends:

Could the forum operators please add which subforum the post being reported is in? Sometimes one is active in more than one subforum and can't remember easily where a post resides. Please change this:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
You are receiving this notification because you are watching the topic "My Win10 crashes" at "virtualbox.org".


to this:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
You are receiving this notification because you are watching the topic "My Win10 crashes" in "Windows Guests" at "virtualbox.org".


or:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
You are receiving this notification because you are watching the topic "My Win10 crashes" in  at "virtualbox.org / Windows Guests".


It may help some folks, like me at least...

scott? I'm not sure what the issue is because when I get a notification it includes a link that takes me directly to the post. Or do you just want to know ahead of time?

I get my emails in my guest at work and I browse & post on my host, I guess I could just copy the link & paste on the host. Wait a minute though...

(tries right-click on link, sees "copy hyperlink" as choice, copies, pastes in host browser, jumps right to post)

D'oh!

OK, if it's a lot of trouble, never mind. Thanks, Lou, that was very easy!

Let me get this straight... You're actually posting about not being able to post?
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
Do NOT reply with the "QUOTE" button, please use the "POST REPLY", at the bottom of the form.

And I can't post any replies to you. Weird huh?

Well it would be nice to know why i am not getting any replies and what i did wrong to not get taken seriously, even if someone doesn't have time or have all the answers it would be fair to know you are not being ignored, if i did something to offend someone i am sorry.

Can you elaborate a bit more? Searching your posts they seem to have replies.

The simple answer is, sometimes it takes time to get a response. Everyone here is a volunteer and replies when they can.

No problem. Just keep in mind this is a users forum which means someone who knows the answer to someone's question has to be online and reads someone's post before it can be answered. I've been on the forum for approx 7 years and as far as I know, no one is ignored purposely.
