#3365013 Spell Check Issues?

Posted by AKL on 09 July 2013 - 04:20 AM

There's a 'u' in our 'colour' as well biggrin.png There's a gay bar round the corner to me that I always refuse to go to because it has the americanised spelling of 'colours' as it's name biggrin.png

I bet they ordered that sign in the US. Or maybe they're just cheapo's wink.png

Ok, I've changed the dictionary on my browser to English - Australian (whatever that means)

The Aussie version has a special section for sarcasm. You can officialy be sarcastic now, without your spell-checker calling you out on it all the time. Oh and it also has a kangaroo section, if I'm not mistaken.

eta: I spelled/spelt "officialy" wrong on purpose, otherwise I'd miss the red underlining too much.

All I wanted to say is be thankful that you're American, because almost every second word that I type is recognised as incorrect spelling but only because its English UK spelling not English US spelling.

lol.gif Right? And then I have the handicap of English not being my native language... Every single word is marked as a typo... Or maybe that's my spell-checker's way of saying to just shut up and don't type anything at all. Must be it...

@CBIOT13: Spell checking is a browser setting, to my knowledge it has nothing to do with the board software. If you're using Chrome (I'm assuming it's similar for other browsers), right-clicking a misspelled word will bring you to the spell-checker options.

Hi Fabian! I believe you, I know how us Dutchies communicate sometimes ;) Please don't be sad, I'm sure you'll find that the current mods are seriously cool! But thanks again, the amount of support and kindness that I've received from members was just overwhelming. Our members are the bestest! :)
I also think you've made some good points with regards to the scar forum, I'm pretty sure that Admin and the mods see it, too. imo there's just no need to be so negative, it won't help bring forums back any sooner, all it does is divert attention from the topic.

Wowowowow Fabian! I just got your PM, which triggered me to come back here. Thank you very much for your kind words, but please... The decision to leave was mine and mine alone, these people have nothing to do with it. In fact, having worked with them very closely for a long time, they have practically become family. And trust me, I didn't always agree with them either, on the contrary, we've had our fights. I'm sorry that you hated to see me go, but please don't take it out on them, ok? I see the frustration in your posts, but it's not appreciated. You should be mad at me then, for again, it was my decision, no one forced me. fwiw: I'm pretty sure that there are several members who partied once they found out that I had left wink.png  I know the current moderators and I know they are amazing, give them some credit.
As for this topic, from one Dutchman to another: stfu! (you must appreciate the honesty tongue.png). I totally get where you're coming from, I understand why members are complaining, but come on... You're acting as if something terrible has happened to mankind. Relax, ok? And tone it down a bit. I'm sure that you can have a decent conversation without being rude. Yes yes, I know...us Dutchies are pretty straightforward in our communication, but you have to understand that it's not like that everywhere else. And posts and emails are different from talking in person, people feel attacked much sooner. Even though your intentions are good, I can see that, the way you communicate them sucks, sorry.
Sooooo...Paul, when do you unmerge the red marks and scar forums? tongue.pnglol.gif
And AyeAye! wavey.gif I miss you, silly woman! Hey, when has the world stopped revolving around you anyway? What did I miss? wink.png (meh, don't answer)
Be well, everybody! biggrin.png
eta...I just realized that this is almost entirely off-topic...  neutral.gif

#3346587 Scarless Healing

Posted by AKL on 07 May 2013 - 01:30 PM

I just made ​​a thread with the correct term 'scar free healing', since in this thread the term is the decrease of the scar (scarlees healing).


Scarless = without scars.


And if we offtopic all here, is because we have nothing to say ... but we are desperate people (all here), so I think that judge and warnings about our behavior is something no human, as this thread should be to 'here come those who are very desperate and we have a little tolerance with them' ... so we have not insulted account, we have only attacked a bit (which is different).


Insulting/harassing and accusing people without any proof whatsoever isn't going to heal scars either, so it's probably best to just say nothing then.

I've removed even more posts (thanks to the member who brought it to our attention). Behave yourselves, people! It's really not that hard.

#3346016 The Scar Free Healing Thread.

Posted by AKL on 05 May 2013 - 04:09 PM

And I'm closing it. Have some patience until the original thread is reopened. It's not that there was much going on there anyway, apart from mocking and false accusations. I'm sure you can wait another day.

#3345939 Scarless Healing

Posted by AKL on 05 May 2013 - 08:21 AM

Topic closed for now, until we've had enough time to go through all the rubbish. It'll take some time, in the meantime please take the insults and false accusations elsewhere, they're not appreciated here.



eta: Topic reopened. We have removed several posts and edited just as many. The amount of profanity was just insane. If you need to use expletives in every other sentence to get your point across, then maybe you should just ask yourself if you really have such a strong case. Discussions that end in (false) accusations and personal ad hominem attacks are not beneficial to our community, use arguments and factual proof instead. We've done our best to clean up the last couple of pages, if you find more offensive posts (old or new), please let us know by reporting them.
Thank you all for your patience!

#3345115 Will The Cost Of Shipping Internationally Improve Anytime Soon?

Posted by AKL on 02 May 2013 - 02:56 PM

Hi Lilly75,


Someone else has started a similar topic about shipping costs here: http://www.acne.org/...-international/


I agree that paying more for shipping than for a complete Acne.org kit is a major turn-off for people outside of the US. The cheapest option is already pretty expensive, but if you want your package to be traceable, it's completely disproportional with UPS being the only option then. Let's hope that they'll find a way to reduce those costs, so the Acne.org products will be much more affordable to overseas customers.

#3345093 Will Girl Love A Boy With Acne Scar?

Several posts removed/edited. If you can't play nice, then don't play.


And please keep in mind that we'd like this to be a safe place for all ages. Vulgarities and explicit language will not be tolerated (please refer to the board rules to see what's allowed). Thanks!


Thanks to the member who reported it and to the member who was criticizing my poor attempt to clean up this topic wink.png

#3343350 Acne.org Products International

Posted by AKL on 25 April 2013 - 05:48 PM

I don't know about the number of packages leaving the Acne.org warehouse everyday, but if the volume is high enough, they could negotiate better shipping costs. I know that one of my clients saved about $40,000 a month, only by talking to a different courier (DHL instead of UPS). Companies like iHerb ship to Europe for as little as $4 (no insurance/tracking), and choosing DHL over UPS saves about 50% ($12 vs. $24, both offer track&trace). Quite a difference. Maybe something to look into.

Excuse the duck face pic...i find it weird to just smile and take pictures of myself.


I happen to like ducks ;) Holy cow! Like Brandy (but much later, obviously), I only just saw your before pics. Congrats to you, really good to see the amazing transformation!

#3341234 Photo Deletion

Posted by AKL on 16 April 2013 - 11:01 PM

I've just tried deleting one image. That works, as long as you're on the details page. In the overview page, deleting a picture doesn't work (nothing, not even an error message). I've changed your album settings to "Private", so no one else can see the pictures now.


@Admin: this is the error message that appears when trying to delete an entire album:
