as we have told you many times in the past unless you have restored your copyright, we will not be providing you support.

Firstly, unless you get something in writing from your members, you don't have the copyright on their posts. You definitely don't have the copyright on SMF itself, because you're not the Simple Machines organisation.

But if you assert you have copyright on 'the software on your site', then me helping you fix it could actually violate copyright law in helping you since I would have to do things on a piece of code I wasn't legally allowed to modify.

But I will answer your first question, why does it stop at 16777215? Because that's a limit of SMF. Fixing it requires masses of work and I'm not able to work on your copyrighted work, obviously, I'm only able to work on SMF's copyrighted work which is licensed to me and you.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

Just needs the relevant field changing from MEDIUMINT unsigned to INT unsigned. The OP has reached the limit for unsigned values in a MEDIUMINT field

Sure, once you've placed back the SMF copyright notice. We're not going to provide support to you until you do. That's what Illori has said, as have many others.

I can take a look as to why we can't see it, if you attach your theme's index.template.php.

No, it needs a variety of changes beyond that, not just that, but also the fact that you're actively encouraging people who flout the SMF licence requirements and potentially code changes for a few of them as well.

I *do* see a copyright for Simple Portal, I *do not* see a copyright for SMF itself. They are two separate notices, and both of them have to exist.

You guys are wasting your breath.

This contretemps has been going on for years with this member, who refuses to acknowledge the effort provided [for free] by the SMF collective.

ummmm....
on that site.... rhemuthcastle.com
Total Members: 332

on your OTHER site - thisglobe.com
Total Members: 4773119


I might add....   the thisglobe site is horribly slashed and tacked together as far as coding goes
and it looks like you removed the copyright as we said -- but forgot bits, leaving closing tags in palce after removing the opening tags.

eesh...    really, dude...  get a clue.  Either put the copyright back (AND LEAVE IT THERE) or stop asking for support.

Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Why are you posting my site?  My site DOES have SMF's copyright present.

Rotflmao......   because he tried to pass your site off as his thinking that we are not capable of looking at historical posts to figure out what site is actually his.


Btw, I love Katherine kurtz’s books.
