      ***HERE is how to access PRESALE CODES, VIP* and Meet and Greet* opportunities.***   01/30/2017

      Before getting down to the business of access to presale codes, etc. please take note:   ***Please be advised that any member publicly posting actual presale codes anywhere on the forum (and possibly elsewhere!) or reportedly through private messages, will be banned from membership here on AO! NO EXCEPTIONS!   Our site here at adamofficial.com (aka AO) is Adam's official record label site, not his official fan club, and is not the place to find presale codes, nor are they provided through the official newsletter.   Presale codes are provided to paid members of Adam's official fan club one to several hours before the presale begins. If you are a paid member you can find the presale code in your dashboard at that site.
      The official fan club, Adam Lambert Fans, can be found here: http://www.adamlambertfans.com
      You must pay a fee to join. I believe the minimum fee is $9.99.
      Any other entity, website, or contact person on Twitter, email, etc. claiming to be representing Adam's official fan club and collecting payments other than directly at the above website is BOGUS, NOT LEGITIMATE!   Any questions you may have concerning any aspect of the fan club, including presale codes, VIP* tickets, Meet and Greet* opportunities, should only be addressed to the fan club moderators, DearBecky and addictedtoadam here on AO in the Adam Lambert Fan Club subforum. Please check to see if your question has already been posted in an existing thread there before posting a new topic. Please do not post questions concerning these subjects anywhere else on the forum. You can find the fan club subforum listed on the main forums page directly under Tour Talk.   The direct link is:

Hi!

I, too, had to go through "forgot your password" to get my old password working again. Yesterday I tried with my old pswd and it seems that after three unsuccessful tries your account gets locked for 15 mins.

My avi isn't showing and I took it from my pc, so I think you're on the right tracks there, Flash. :)

Ah, I just got a quick look at my new Admin Control Panel and the first thing I noticed is the site is in the process of rebuilding and is only about 24% done. This is a slow process so hang in there everyone. It will likely take a few days for everything to be restored.

Thanks for explaining some things :) It's weird that when you want to upload cover photo you can do it from your PC and when you want to upload avi the only options are URL or no photo. But I hope when the process of rebuilding hits 100% everything will be ok again :)

I'm still trying to ascertain if those whose avis are still up used a url link to post the avi on the original forum before the change, or did you upload it directly from your PC. Koula, it can't be both. Either you uploaded a file from your PC or entered a url to link to it from another host website such as photobucket.

Before the change I uploaded my avi from my PC

Max, the old forum won't come back.  But, according to Flash, this new version is not yet complete.  More to come :)

Foxey thank you very much. Okay, so we'll see what happens. Perhaps the only benefit of all. I know, every change is good for something.

Hey everybody--have you noticed that this new platform gives us notifications, like FB or twitter, that show up at the bottom of your screen, even when you are not on the site?

And you can turn on email notifications too :)

Hi! Yes. But I would prefer if I could turn the email notifications off. I just realised that we are forced to receive an email notification from every messenger message. We can't turn it off in the settings because it seemed to be enabled by administration.

Flash, is this really necessary and if not could you please let us manage the email notifications for messenger by ourselves? (My email is already filled with everything else - no need for AO notifications unless they are from admin or about perks/presales.)

I noticed. And wow, it is also sound.:)

Yes, I turned this off also. I don't want any bleeping in between my Adam videos. :D Haha!

Hi Alberta

Yes the email notifications is like spam its very annoying. How did you turn the sound off and I actually would prefer not to recieve notifications whilst Im busy reading or posting. I can see on my notification icon if I have any and dont want to know every time there is a reply in a thread Ive just posted. We can see this as the thread title is bold.

Wow, that's fun. I will probably teach a computer. Perhaps I will be an IT specialist. I learned what a URL. Wiki told me, wow she's so smart, she knows just about everything. Thank you dear team of moderators for the change. And I think it just good. I owe you. ;):D

Adding to Karen's observations:

When you are in the textbox typing a post/reply, there is a button at the bottom left that says "notify me of replies.  Turning that off turns off the email notifications.  It looks to me like the default is "off", so you won't have to do this every time.  That same button must also control the on-screen notifications.  I am now only getting notifications when i've been liked or quoted, which is OK with me.

Does anyone else have a problem with the format of the posts - the older ones, that is, they are like stretched out vertically, with one letter per line,  I hope I am explaining it right.

I don't know if it's this forum or my computer because i have been having some computer problems lately.

Otherwise, I was able to sign in OK and reset my password.  Not brave enough to try my avi yet.:rolleyes:

Hi Karen!

You can also find a lot of settings when you click your username on the upper right corner. There are e.g. Account settings -> Notification settings. :)

Dear Roxanne, about your first problem, nothing I can´t think of how I can help you. But your profile photo you renew, when you click on the selected image and picking one "copy image address" and then you enter into the URL link and it's done Is it understandable for you?

I know of one other person with the same problem, Roxanne.  She is trying to access the site on a Kindle and says it looks like that too.  As for me, it looks like it should.

I have this problem only on my mobile phone but I don't have any idea what to do with this annoying thing :wacko:

It shows up normally on my phone, which is an improvement over the old forum.  The old forum had a funky layout that I didn't like when I viewed it on my phone.  This new one looks pretty much like it does on my PC.  I haven't checked on my iPad yet.

Maybe the difference is due to different operating systems.  I have an iPhone, so that's IOS.  Amber, what have you got? IOS, Android, or Windows?

And does anyone know what the operating system is for a kindle?  MoovieBassets is seeing one letter per line on her kindle.  

Whatever is happening, maybe the issue will be resolved when the site finishes building.  Perhaps the component needed for kindles and some phones is not yet installed.

I have Android on my mobile phone and tablet PC (just checked it, the same issue). But the problem is only when I pick specific part of AO like e.g. Adam Discussion - threads are vertically but posts are ok.

From what I know kindles can have different OS like Android, Linux or others. So maybe it really depends on the OS :huh:

So sorry folks. I think I'm not able to help you. It never occurred to me that you are using mobile phones to visit here. I'm limited, unknowing. I thought that nearly everyone you come here for Adam via PC or laptop as I do. I have antediluvian edition mobile phone, is there any android, I can make calls, send SMS messages and most importantly listen to my amazing music out there that I have over 20 hours and still don't have enough. And the Internet? I have it too, but it don't want to speak to me

@Max, we use various devices ;) I use my laptop mostly when I want to log in and write or talk here. But I like to browse through the forum on my way to work/from work so I use mobile phone, although I never log in on it. Now it's very uncomortable to read because the screen is small and all I can see is vertical thread titles.

Thanks everyone who replied to my post, it makes me feel better when others are having the same problem, although I wish no one was having it, ha,ha.  I should say that the vertical problem is only in the thread titles.  I have a Mac desktop, never had any problems in the old forum.  Hopefully everything will be resolved soon and we can go back to "berting" as easily as before, it was something I looked forward to every day.
