When I try to "track" a topic I get an error message "You are already subscribed to this topic or forum". I don't understand the message. Doesn't it mean that I wish to track a topic I've entered?


Hi There,

That means you are already tracking the topic. If you click up top where it says My Topics, you will see your current topics that you are watching.

You may have to go into your Controls to adjust how you actually get notified about the topics.

We don't typically delete accounts. If you choose to not use it, then it will just become inactive, but we rarely delete accounts. Is there a problem you'd like to discuss? You may feel free to PM me.

Is there a way to flag a query as being solved so that anyone else with the same problem can know it was resolved and look at the solution?

Derricks2,

I'm sorry for the delay. Shortly after you applied, we were forced to quickly upgrade our forum software due to some malicious attacks. In the process, we lost the mods that allowed us to receive and process applications for GeekU. GeekU is still open; just the application process is missing right now. I believe your application is still available for me to look at; I will review it and get back to you with a reply.

Thanks for the reply. I heard about the attacks wasn't sure what was going to happen next with the program. Glad to see that it's still here.
