Guidelines not showing up

    My apologies if I should've added this to another thread. I've posted three or four times already and I haven't seen hide nor hair of the forum guidelines. I was assuming that they hadn't been implemented yet, but others in the Homework Helper's forum indicated that they've seen way too much of them.

    I have the opposite problem - the "agreement" keeps showing up when navigating to a different area - even if I've already been there and already agreed to it! I think I've agreed about 8 times already in the last half hour or so.

    I admit I've had to agree twice to the global agreement, but since then it is fine. Is anyone else having this problem?

    I have yet to see anything also.

    It says in you profile you've agreed with Forums Global Guidelines and Philosophy Forums Guidelines!:smile: So you'll never see any of them. Perhaps they're only for misbehaved members like me. And base on what I said, Greg is even...:uhh: :biggrin:

    Thanks to Lisa! for pointing out they're in your user profile. :smile:

    So, if for some reason you haven't seen them, or want to refresh your memory on them, look in your user profile and it shows what you supposedly have agreed to. Click on the link and you can read the guidelines again (or for the first time).

    OK, I'm feeling stupid. I've looked in my profile and I don't see anything there about the guidelines - no agreements, no links, nothing. Would someone be kind enough to check for me and tell me if I'm right that there's nothing there or if I'm just not looking in the right place? If the latter, if you could let me know where to look I'd appreciate it.

    I don't suppose this is a major problem, as I have no intention of violating the forum guidelines, but it bugs me that I can't figure out what's going on.

    Yes, it says you've agreed. It's the left of page under your name.

    Thank you, Lisa!. This is just plain weird. I looked again - there's nothing there. I copied the top of the page: let's see if I can paste it:

    And that's all that shows up. It's also odd, as the only time I agreed to the rules was back in April of 2004 when I first joined.

    I guess I won't worry about it. Well, that's a lie - it's still going to bug me. But I guess I'll shut up about it. :)

    Edit: Out of curiosity, I looked. I'm not seeing it on your profile, either.

    Argh! Let it go, Diane.

    Thank you, Evo. That's what I've been doing. Clearly, I've offended the forum gods, and they've decided to make me feel like a doofus. :)

    Well, it's not the first time.

    Diane, have you tried clearing your browser cache ?

    No - I didn't think that was an issue, since I never visited some of those forums until last night, but I'll give it a try.

    Edit: No soap. But a good suggestion, anyway.

    What operating system and browser are you using? We should find out if this is another browser issue. Do you have an alternative browser other than the one you've been using here that you can try?

    OS - WinXP Home, SP2
    Browser - IE6

    I keep Firefox on my laptop - I can try that, but it'll be tomorrow before I get a chance to. I'll keep you updated.

    ummm I don't see anything in my profile, and I have cleared my cache on that page.

    Here is a screenshot of what I see: http://img417.imageshack.us/img417/2760/pfprofile3st.png

    edit... I clicked on Greg's link and I got the guidelines :smile: And it shows up in my profile too :smile:

    That seems to have done it. At least, I'm seeing a section called "agreed rules" in my profile now. It only shows the global rules at the moment, but that's a sight better than it was before. Thanks!
