How to get faster and better forum answers.

Postby RickW-NC » Mon Nov 07, 2011 4:44 pm

I have seen a lot of forum questions that result in a request for more information. One of the questions is "What server do you belong on?". This should be obvious from your location but is usually unknown. Here is where to go to fill in that information: ucp.php?i=profile&mode=profile_info

The other questions are "What phone are you using?", "What operating system?", and "What level of Waze?". This information can all be provided if you use the "edit signature feature" in your profile. Your experience with Waze can usually be guessed by the date you joined, but it would not hurt to put your personal "Waze status" and if you are an "AM" or not there too.

Waze on!

Is the profile of a Wazer accessible? If so, how.

Not directly... But some of that info is available to the right of each post (Location, Date Joined, etc) ---->

As well as the user's signature shows up below each post (and updates in all post each time they change it...

As mentioned, only limited data. The ability to lookup user lists and the user details has been disabled because phpBB (the database) cannot handle the lookup of tens of millions of accounts. Waze found that the web server would crash or at least hang for several minutes any time someone looked up this info.

This has been happening again the past week or so. I wonder if someone found a way around the block?
