Ok Boyan thrown some motors on controller and CANNOT make it Slave the motors together. changed all settings and still no Joy.
The A/B selection makes no difference. Setting A pulse to from Pulse/Deg to Pulse/Circ just makes the A motor ONLY spin continuesly with no control over it. Pulse Degree does exactly that moves in Degree increments per pulse.

I'm also not impressed with the Crap Terminal connectors on back what load of rubbish. Tiny holes and half of them won't clamp properly. I see loads of potential for trouble with lose or fallen out wires with these things.!!

And just when I thought it was safe to post things without people getting annoyed by moderation yet again.
I think my latest retro thread might be getting continued elsewhere.

Knowing what you and John are like I saw the posts and smiled. ;-)

I wasn't quick enough to see the posts, but I did get the emails with the posts' content.
Can't beat a bit good banter ;-)

I wonder if PMs are still being "monitored" as well...

Send me one saying I'm a clueless wakner and see if it gets pulled :P

It's more for solicitation than being rude to each other :whistle:
Besides, if you're still clueless about it at your age, there really isn't much hope ;-)

Sorry Dean it is my fault, I was trying to do too much all at once!

There is a bug in the forum software, if you select posts from this discussion but don't actually do anything, then move to another discussion and select posts there as well, any action you take on those posts, effects the posts in this one too!

This works even if you have another browser window/tab open, so when I got side tracked reading a PM and then bounced back to the many tabs I typically have going, I just got on with what I needed to do in that tab, in this instance it was moving a post to one of the new sections I've been working on in the Electronics forums.

Problem was it also moved these post's as well because I still had them selected as far as it was concerned, anyway I've moved them back to this thread and all is good again, sorry for any inconvenience.

Thank you Lee and my apology's for jumping to conclusions that we'd gone back to dark days. . :hopelessness:

The cynic in me wonders why you had the posts selected in the first place ;)

Turns out it's not a bug, It's a feature, and has reminded me why I gave up using vB for forums.

Lee, have you ever stopped to consider the repercussions of your continual thread tampering?

Yet again, due to your over-zealous moderating, you've managed to turn a couple jest posts, into another mountain that's pissed of various users.

What thread tampering, it's called management and organisation.

I have provided a clear set of forum guideline's with regards to what people can expect from me and what I expect from them. If you don't like it, you know what you can do!

I will continue with my obligations to those code's of conduct uninfluenced and would ask again that members do the same.

If you read the thread, this so called "mountain" was started by Jazz jumping to conclusions and then continued by others, NOT ME!

So yes, I feel it has now continued enough that it detracts from the quality of Boyan's DDSCV1.1 discussion (http://www.mycncuk.com/threads/10187-DDSCV1-1-3-and-4-axis-offline-motion-controller) and out of RESPECT for that thread, Boyan, Jazz, John and with regards to getting someware with making the controller do what it is they need it to, I have moved these post's to their own discussion.

This is also me being proactive about other concerns I have and may be able to help with.

We are a community of over five thousand people, not an audience with a select few.

Oh, I must of touched a nerve. :-)

You seem to forget I know exactly how vB works, and I'd hazard a guess you actually did delete the original posts, and then when you got called out for it, you reinstated them along with a bullshit excuse. Why else would of even selected the posts in the first place?

And if the forum takes that much effort from you to run, then you really want to reconsider running it.

I would certainly be posting more frequently if it wasn't clear that informative posts Jazz and I made a few years ago did disappear.

Have times changed?

Quite possibly I'm human after all, not a robot. However I think it's me that has hit a nerve.

Don't forget to mention the bit about being threatened with legal action or the indirect explanation and apology I gave you for not quite dealing with that situation in the best interest of preserving information.

The forum is 10 years old next year, congratulations.

Lee,
I know all to well what's involved in running forums (use the term community if you want, but I'm not one for bullshit marketing terms). I've ran various forums over the past 20 years, but I've got other priorities just now.
The last two forums I ran, one was probably on par size wise with this one, and one that when it was finally shut down, had over 250'000 posts and just under 10'000 registered users.
Neither of them took a great deal of time to run. Simply check in a couple times a day, have a read of any threads I was interested in, along with any that looked like they might be trouble brewing in. Deal with any issues, which were very rare, and if any action had to be taken, do it and leave a note explaining why. Having posts/threads disappear with no explanation is the number one way to piss off users, and result in things snowballing, just like this thread.
The most time consuming thing was dealing with backups (although I moved it to a host who done automatic 4x daily backups), clearing out failed spam registrations, and changing things when we decided they needed a make over.

Ultimately they got shut down because social media took over from forums. The biggest one went from several hundred posts a day, to only a handful in the space of about a year. Lots of forums at the time suffered the same fate.

So, if this sites takes as much effort as you make out it does, then you really are doing something wrong.

As for companies threatening legal action, been there, they got told to get lost. You can't be sued for having a justified opinion, and if advertisers weren't happy, then tough. Having a site where people could give their honest opinion is worth far more than advertising.

Off course, none of that answers my original question.
Why did you have the posts selected in the first place?
Rather than give any explanation, instead we've had two rants which totally avoided giving an answer, and my comment about vB, was the fact I know what deletion options are available, and how the default option would allow deleted posts to be reinstated as though it was never there with just a couple clicks. Now you maybe did have a perfectly honest reason for having them selected, but you've thus far failed to give it.

I would be willing to help you with the site, but as the above demonstrates, when things don't go your way, we get a big rant with toys launched into orbit.
And for the record, when have you ever actually asked for help running the site?

If it wasn't for the fact I think this is brilliant site for like minded people who want to share good honest advice, I wouldn't post here.
I know I've maybe been a bit vocal over some of the things you've done, but reacting the way you have doesn't show you in a good light.
If I've personally offended you I am sorry, but can we please have a bit more explanation when you do move things around, and a bit less of the ranting when people question why?
