    So I just contacted HP off list and she says link is good cuz she tested it after making post and later on when she looked back to see if I had replied yet. Anyhow she says maybe https transition is causing my problem cuz I get message like _you don't have permission to veiw page blah blah blah_ which is exactly what happens when following links to deleted posts:confused:

    So HP says she'll try to get on here soon to test it again but I'm asking if anyone else has same problem cuz it seems like bug but HP says it's all good with FF and that's browser I'm using:confused:

    Here's quote of post containing link so to test plz click on big _THIS_ in quote

    So now I want to say I'm very happy abt https change:)! So if this is just like _teething problem_ I understand how that goes but I say secured protocol is excellent move! TNX!

    Hello,

    @Aleph(0) , the link you show goes to the AAC contributers forum.
    You do not have permission to view that forum.

    Hello,

    The AAC contributers forum is used to preview articles that are prepared for publication on the AAC.
    Selected members can give remarks on what to change or improve on the articles, before publication.

    Tnx bertus! I don't know if proofreading for site is like they say _for me_ or not and anyhow my post count is probably too low so I totally understand abt not being invited to special forum.:cool: What I don't understand though is why @Hypatia's Protege pointed me to post I can't access:mad:o_O! So I guess that's between her and I:rolleyes:!

    Bertus since HP might not have time to be back on here today could you do me a favor by copying post HP wanted me to see to EHT thread? Tnx!

    It's not about you.
    I had a political disagreement with The Orange Team and was banished from The Contributors Forum, so it's obviously not about post count either. It has been well over a year since that regime change and I still don't know how anybody contributes to that area. From what I've seen lately, I also don't know if anybody proofreads. To me, it's just a part of the site I never explore.

    #12 I have same problem with that f'king tutorial:oops: So I know I'd be bad bet for content creation:oops:

    #12 from what you're saying you just didn't get along or fit in over there or whatever? But I wasn't invited in first place WHICH IS TOTALLY OK since I'm _stuck_ in my faux fora persona of like a developmentally disabled adolescent which I'm not real happy abt but I made my bed and all that:oops:! Anyhow I can totally understand how the _voices of AAC_ shouldn't include Alephspeak:eek:

    I think I caught machinemadchen on a day when she was seriously over tired. I was speaking in a subtle, HP sort of way, and she dismissed me as, "off topic" simply because she didn't understand my point. I told her that the entire Orange Team was off topic because her project here is worthless without the AAC fora and the AAC fora are still one of the best sites on the Internet without the Orange Team.:D

    So yes, I have done content creation here comprising probably several hundred schematics, but The Orange Team seems to be a completely $eparate enterpri$e. They seem to be packaging info-blurbs for money while I give it away for free. The biggest difference I have seen is that the fora are inherently peer reviewed and the info-blurbs aren't even vetted for functionality.:( Rather than invest my efforts in people who don't want to hear from me, and with whom I am in direct competition, I just ignore that part of the website.:p

    Hey @#12 I well recall that:( -- That said, I was under the impression your resignation from the contributor forum was voluntary? -- For all that, I'm pleased to note that said forum has matured into a professional, cooperative, and, non-antagonistic community on all sides:cool: - Perhaps you should consider re-enrollment if only for another look?:)

    Sincerely - I hear you! -- On the other hand if the present (IMO reasonable) 'extent' of commercialism keeps the site alive and well then more power to it!:cool: -- It is nice to think that all the work put into, for instance, the 'EHT PSU Tutorial' has a well-nigh permanent 'home':) -- I can but assume other members share similar sentiments as regard their blogs, articles, E-book contributions, etc... -- to say nothing of our continuing contributions to the on-topic fora...:cool:

    Very best regards

    I vehemently disagreed with their operating philosophy, but they slammed the door on my fingers as I left. There might be some way for me to access that feature, but I have no interest in begging them to let me work for (nearly) free. I can do that right here on the fora.:p

    Of course that's entirely your call -- My comments were merely by way of advising you that it has 'settled' into quite another (vastly improved) 'world' post-transition:cool:...

    Best regards

    @#12 -- If you'll pardon an observation, you are (albeit inadvertently) making an excellent argument for having another go on the Contributor's Forum!:) -- On my word it has matured quite nicely in its scant two years!:cool:

    Most sincerely
    HP:)

    I would never doubt your honesty.
    Sometimes I disagree with your POV, but I never doubt it's your POV and as honest as you know how.

    @Wendy

    FWIW The easiest way I've found is to cut the post's contents (editor in 'BB code mode') , paste same into a new MS Word document, preform the required 'search and replace' then paste the resultant code back into the post editor - note that selection of Word's 'match whole word' option is advisable inasmuch as 'http' is a substring of' 'https'...

    One may, of course, use the word processor of their choice:cool:

    Hope this is of some assistance!
