Maybe you've got banned?
That;s a possible reason i think!

There is one button called Watch Setting in CodeRanch which has 3 options for user to choose

Let say If I have interested on Android forum, I can click that Watch Setting button and choose Watch for new topics in this forum. So everytime there are new posts created, I will receive an email notifications.

DaniWeb so far don't have such feature right?

At this time, we only email you about updates to specific articles you've specified you want to watch.

However, there are some other tools at your disposal:

You can fetch an RSS feed of all new topics tagged with java. You can receive notifications by plugging this RSS feed into an RSS reader. Or, you can use something like IFTTT to send you alerts, text messages, tweets, facebook posts, or even flicker the lights in your smart home, etc., each time the RSS feed has been updated.

Additionally, if you want to do something creative and roll your own RSS parser, our RSS feeds use PubSubHubbub, which means you can get notified for updates via PUSH notifications instead of having to poll.

You can use our JSON feed to fetch all topics tagged with java, sorted by when they were last posted in. You will, unfortunately, have to write your own parser / reader / notification system (or perhaps one already exists somewhere on the web, probably a Github repository somewhere that would only need slight modifications to make it work).

Our complete API documentation is available at https://www.daniweb.com/welcome/api

A few steps. First check your DANIWEB settings about emails. Once that is done you automatically get email when you create a new discussion or reply to an existing discussion.

To get a notification without posting a reply, click the Watch Topic icon.

PS. Adding note. This only gives you notifications of new replies to a topic that is open. To monitor for new discussions, you have to craft such with ideas from Dani.

Hi,if I have interested on one of the forum, example post which has Java tag, can I receive notification if someone is posting on that forum?

That was welcome news. I just walked through the exact same steps as before and this time it worked for me too.

Sorry about that. That was a bug from the migration we discovered late last night. Unfortunately, there were some serious repercussions as a result of it, where everyone who attempted to post yesterday was flagged as a spammer. It should be under control now.

rproffitt commented: Thanks for the explanation. Otherwise I would think these folk were all spammers. +0

Today I noticed most if not all posts (only checked out 10) today report an IP of 10.143.27.251

At first I thought we had a spammer but now it looks like a bug.

I said let me know if anything isn’t working. I never said anything about being able to fix anything.

Thank you for your bug reports. They will be looked into.

rproffitt commented: Nothing new broken. Seems as good as before. About climate change, that's all of us doing our part. +0

Anything? How about the US Government (Congress), US Immigration, Climate Change and US Health Care system? Can you fix those too? ;)

Sorry for the intermittent downtime over the past few days. We think we were being DDOS'ed, perhaps unclear.

However, we've upgraded to new web servers tonight, to bring HTTP/2 support and finally move from PHP 5.x to PHP 7. A few years late, I know.

Let me know if anything isn't working as it should!

That's OK, yes I meant that it's all the way down to the last post as I expected an "edit" button to be wither fixed positioned or for each thread, but that's I guess personal preferences.

Sorry, I'm still misunderstanding you. Individual post edits are per-post, not per-thread.

If I remember correctly in the old days there was just a textx area to reply to the thread which wasn't kind of floating as the current one is and, again I seem to remember, it spanned across the whole width of the page whereas the current window noe is only like half of the width of the page and you can't make it bigger other than making it full width - sorry maybe that wasn't clear

We've gone through many different iterations over the past 2 decades. Some were wider than others, but they were always a fixed width.

I remember I tried to login once and a new login system was in place at the time. I couldn't so I just left it at that.

Sorry the Dazah login was a confusing experience for you. It was confusing for lots of people, so while we kept the exact same technology under the hood, we renamed it DaniWeb Connect. It's amazing what a rebranding will do to lessen confusion!

In a search today I landed here again and before I could wipe my eyes, I started posting again... :)

Welcome back!!

The editor is a pain ...

I must agree, many changes around if you have not been here for a while. I have not been here for around 5 years or so (returned a few times to find a different look). I remember I tried to login once and a new login system was in place at the time. I couldn't so I just left it at that. In a search today I landed here again and before I could wipe my eyes, I started posting again... :)

I must say, I like the new interface Dani, much more elegant. The editor is a pain though, I constantly need to minimize it, then check what I am answering on or copying, then open again and try to keep track. I agree with Jim, do the post from an editor and paste it.

The relevant info opening up for me is also not as good as it used to be in the "good 'ol days", back then we had menus for all the relevant topics and languages. Now I need to specific search for a language or topic, it returns some questions (some very old) and forces me to search again. Another thing I picked up, the speed of loading etc increased big time, well done!

Hello Jim, Dani!

Sorry, it's working for me just fine. The only thing I could suspect as the cause of the described behavior is a race condition. Is it possible you requested multiple password resets in a row and clicked on the wrong one? Or perhaps you were actually already logged into DaniWeb in a different browser tab somewhere?

Any luck tracking down the source of the desribed behavior?

Unfortunately, in most cases, Industry expects that age also comes with experience. That's why people "of a certain age" who are trying to start a new career in programming may find it difficult to get a job in this field. You are not likely to find work if all you've done is read a "Sam's Learn to Program in 21 Days" book. Like most things, you can learn to do it well (which takes a lot of time and effort) or you can learn to enjoy doing it poorly. One might get you a job. The other will not.

rproffitt commented: My short story. Company was not interested in older programmers as they tend to want better code rather churn it out. +0

programming never had any physical or age restrictions
More and more new programming languages are emerging, and the industry needs those who are ready to learn them.

Microsoft announces Election Guard open source software for voting machines.

You really can become a programmer and make money on it. First of all you should learn coding by c++ I think. Its the most commonly used software programming language. I started learning it and now I really feel like a good coder with excellence in every technical task. Maybe It will also help you in your first steps.

Thank you for clarifying. The one in the email should be the current password. I’m not sure why it doesn’t work for you. I’ll investigate a little bit later today.

My apologies, I got distracted in the middle of writing this and I think I missed a couple key details. Hopefully this helps clarify things:

The Forgot Password process sends an email with a link to click. The email purports that the link resets the password to one specified in the email. The link logs me in, and takes me to the User Settings page. I can enter a new password no problem. I put the password from the email in the current password box. However when I submit the form it complains that the current password is incorrect. It's required so I can't leave it blank. At this point I'm not able to do a password reset, as I don't know the current password and the one in the email doesn't seem to be the current password either.

Sorry, I'm misunderstanding what you're saying. What you described is the expected behavior, no? What appears to be broken?

Hello Mihai. Romanian?

Welcome to the community. It's one of the best IT related forums around, I'm sure you'll really enjoy your stay here.

yup that totaly fixed my problem!
all i did was replace temp = input()
with temp = int(input())
thank you!!

rproffitt commented: Please mark as solved if this is done. And thanks for working the issue as above. Some demand "just fix my code." +0

Which is why we use conversion functions like https://www.w3schools.com/python/ref_func_int.asp

i removed the quotes to see if that would help and i got this error message
"TypeError: '<' not supported between instances of 'str' and 'int' "
