How to use this site

They just won’t read that. It is that simple. You could display blinking red letters and they won’t read. That is the reality today.

I guess many people do not see , folks should use code tags before publishing codes . that's the smartest thing you can do on forum, like I read first post adequately and understood it .

This is a bit unfair!

New members are not using the search and the number of duplicate topic creation has increased a lot unnecessarily.

I hope we don't need a moderator for this also!

How do I send my query, recently purchased Amibroker 6.2 and was trying to introduce myself to the form but have not figured out how to send the message to the forum, for some this may be dumb, but I am stuck at the first step ....

You managed to post here so the same way you post a query. To post new topic use "New topic"

For what it is worth: today I found this article when browsing Discourse Meta site: and I think it is great informative article for both help givers and takers. Takers should check themselves if they are not showing symptoms of "help vampire" and givers get methods to easily spot such individuals and methods to deal with them in a useful way.

For people expecting help I will just quote part of this article:

Before you ask a question...

Before you ask a question in a community, try to find the answer elsewhere. This way you help yourself by stretching your mind and research abilities, and you learn things more thoroughly too. Plus it's good karma.

Always try these avenues first:

  1. Keep troubleshooting . Often we learn that it's easier to give up and ask for help rather than persisting—when we'd get our breakthrough if we'd only delay giving up for another 10 minutes. Respect yourself, go a little further before giving up.
  2. Google , of course. Try at least 3 or 4 searches before you give it up as hopeless.
  3. Mailing lists, forums, and newsgroups . Chances are, you're not the first person on the Earth to have this problem. Luckily we live in an age where we can search the past. Check out these resources next.
  4. Docs . Sometimes they seem impenetrable, but give it a whack. The more you learn, the easier the documentation will be to understand and decipher.
  5. Ask your question—but phrase it differently . Instead of asking your question directly, ask "Has anyone has seen this problem?" or "Can anyone point me in the right direction?" Likely as not, someone will have been there before, and they might know a blog posting or other resource which can help you out. This way, you show you are respectful of their time, and understand your problem is (probably) not unique.

When you do ask a question, try to provide as much background detail as possible.


Dear Mods,
I'm having similar issue as posted by another user here.

For some reason, even though the stats meet atleast basic, the New User restrictions have not been lifted.
I get restrictions of posting more than 1 image, or reply 3 times in a topic etc which seem very restrictive to the case i'm pursuing in the 6.30.5 Beta thread.

To cite an example, these stats have also got Level 1.

Kindly check.
Thank you.

I did not invent those rules. These are standard settings of Discourse forum that were set so based on Discourse team experience with combating spam. Just gain trust over time and you will be moved to higher privilege levels.

Thank @Tomasz for the reply.

I have limited replies to each topic, so i will be as detailed as possible, I will try not miss anything out.
But Discourse has sent Notification of Promotion in message but i'm still at Trust Level 0. That is why i'm raising the issue.

On MAY 2nd, System User sent this Message

Hey there. We see you’ve been busy reading, which is fantastic, so we’ve promoted you up a trust level!

This means i should have Level 1 Trust but i'm still stuck at 0 even though promoted.
Inspite of being promoted, i'm not there.

To compare some stats,
I have joined on 25-APR (2019), that's more than a month,
My stats
8 days visited 14h read time 202 topics viewed 2.2k posts read
28 given 0 topics created 15 posts created 5 received

To compare 3 recent profile that are at Level 1 have far less joining and read time but still with Level 1.

User: partovi64 joined May 27, 4 days visited, 18min read time
User: albe65 joined 1 day ago, 2 days visited, 31m read time
User: sam6178 joined May 23, 3 days visited, 21m read time

Kindly just compare the profile stats with mine and you will get the picture.
so i have 1 month joining time, 8 days visit and 14Hrs read time plus the inbox Message from "System" but for some reason the Trust Level is stuck at 0.

Thanks and happy weekend.

A post was split to a new topic: Lowest price within range

How to reply to a closed topic.
First off Tomasz, fully appreciate all the fantastic work you put into developing and supporting this product. Don't want to be a pain but unfortunately the fix for Amiquote (invalid cookie) doesn't work for me on my main computer. (It works on one other one I have tried). I have downloaded 4.05 but still get the message. I have tried clearing cookies etc. But no joy.

As the topic is closed I can't post on the thread but want to know how I can get some help with this


AmiQuote 4.05 thread is NOT closed. Just reply there, not in some random unrelated topic.

The topic I'm referring to is : Yahoo Historical stopped working March 10, 2020 - solved

The last message I see is:

SInce I don't know where to post I come to this section to learn how to use the site. Since I don't understand your response here its seems clear that's the type of help I need. So if you could point me to where I can post that would be a help


Obviously you should be answering in RELEVANT thread, ie.. AmiBroker 4.05 thread. And that thread is open. The old thread (Yahoo stopped working) is NOT relevant anymore, because it IS WORKING.

Hello everyone and Happy New Year,
I would like to know the next topic:
How could I see my trust level in the forum?
On the other hand, how could I send a direct message to someone when necessary?
Thank you very much!!!

Click on your avatar -> Preferences -> Summary -> Expand (if not already).

Click on users avatar -> Message.

First of all, thank you for your prompt response
but I can't find it!!!!


On the other hand, following your indication, I don't see the option to send a message (not really that I want to do it, but on some occasion, in a response to a question, I was told that I could describe better in DM and I couldn't. It's just to know in case I have to).
Thanks again!!

For some reason, sometimes some users are not promoted or they receive a bot message of promotion but the actual user Trust Level does not change.
I even raised this at Discourse Forum but there is no specific reason. They just asked me to tell the Admin to do it manually.

Looking at your stats or mine, we actually qualify for Trust Level Member but still stuck at Basic. I was promoted manually to basic and stuck at New User.
Basic user can't send Messages but I think can only reply to one.

If you see many other IDs, they are far less active / post read / posted even Likes received and are Members.
So maybe our posts are noted and @Tomasz promotes us to Member Level.

I really don't mind being a low-level user. In a way it's like that...
It was just to know my limitations.
Greetings and Happy New Year
