  9. That is just an email from the site that something was posted in that section... which come from the admin account... You're probably 'following' that section which is why you get the email.. The posts have been removed and the user blocked. Eric

  12. This type of attitude is pretty common... it runs along the lines of "To justify what I like, I have to hate/insult/denigrate what you like." As an example, "I like Star Wars, but Star Trek sucks." and by implication, so do you. This is pretty difficult to counteract as trying to address it head on only solidifies their opinions. The thing to do (and I may not get this quite right) is to find out the what, where, why and how the other person likes Star Wars, without getting sidetracked into anything involving Star Trek. If they try to go negative, steer it back towards their positive feelings/thoughts about Star Wars. Do not at anytime talk about your opinions of either Star Trek or Star Wars. Only focus on them and their thoughts and feelings. If they persist in going negative, you'll probably get no where and will need to move on. But if you can get them to open up and get some actual, positive reasons for liking Star Wars, at some point you may be able to say, "Oh I see why you like it. Those are many of the very same reasons I like Star Trek, but I can appreciate that Star Wars is something you really seem to enjoy." Let them be happy about enjoying Star Wars on its own and realize that fact. Perhaps then they'd understand your appreciation of Star Trek. Now this is not an easy thing to do - and the fact that I even wrote this out would confuse the heck out of some of my friends, but so be it... Anyway.... I may add on to this later, but I need some sleep. Eric

  15. If you are having difficulty with paying for the Chapter Rechartering fees on the IPMS/USA store - http://www.shopipmsusa.org/product-p/chapter-annual-fee.htm - please try the following steps. clear your browser cache and cookies Cookies must be enabled! If they are disabled or blocked, the store's shopping cart will not work. Go to https://www.shopipmsusa.org/shoppingcart.asp to determine if you have disabled cookies. try with an alternate browser or device (smart phone or tablet) disable (temporarily) any security, ad blocking, popup blockers you are using if you are on a phone or tablet, you may not get a notification pop-up that the item has been added to your cart. Click the 'bag' icon in the upper right to determine if it has been added or not. if these fail, report which browser was having the issue using a browser checker, such as https://www.whatsmybrowser.org/ , and report it in this topic (or send email to webmaster@ipmsusa.org) along with any other relevant details. I can then report these issues to the vendor's technical support team. If you have further questions, please let me know. Update (12/11/2018): Please click the 'bag' icon in the upper right of the page, even if it displays zero or has no number. You may have items in the cart regardless of what is displayed there.
  16. Don't bet on it. Online advertising does not bring in a lot of revenue. E
  17. Links restored. There was an issue on their web server. Eric
