  1. Ian S. added a post in a topic Windows 10 upgrade and failed activation   

    Some OEM machines are being activated through a generic key which the server auto-blocked because it thinks they are all illegal copies for some reason.

    I believe the gift to Windows Insiders is not having to roll back, enter a key, AND you get the Pro version free!

    If you want to remove the watermark of 10240, then you should upgrade still.

    If you're stuck in a quote box, press enter twice or roll under it with your mouse till you see a red line and click on that. The giant first post is because these forums and sub forums are in question mode. Pretty useful if you ask me.

    You could try turning off signatures. There is a little X by someone else's signature, click that and click turn off all signatures.

    The username (for example mine was ians18) login method was removed by IPB. If you have changed your display name (mine is now Ian S.) you must sign in with that instead.

    There are a few issues with things like the subscription page going nowhere, no mini-spy, an anonymous front page log-in, and, perhaps most importantly the difference between a question thread and a Topic thread.  Also, italics don't work for me either. Old quotes are also showing up wierd.
     
    Topic Thread  vs. Question Thread
    Question threads keep the OP pinned to the topQuestion threads have voting answerQuestion threads have a "Sort by rating" (default) and "Sort by date" toggle... If you're wondering why you see more recent posts first, that's whyTopic forums have a chat bubble icon on neowin.net/forums while Question forums have a question markYou can mark Question threads as "solved" while topic threads can't beThe list of question threads in each form has a circle to display a check mark when it's marked "solved"Both have star ratings at the topIn a question forum or subforum, you cannot jump to the last page of the thread, whereas on the topic forums you canYou cannot view the number of views on a question forum or subforum

    Right, the news comments are now going to be mirrored here in the forums (post here it shows up there and vice versa) so the profile pics are being migrated now.

    If you shrink down to mobile size, there is a start new topic button. When you applied the theme to the desktop size it removed the button, will it be added back?
     
    Pssst: Are you going to enable cover photos?
