• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

This seemed like the safest place to try a post and see if one shows up. If it doesn't, I can't seem to find a place to enter my call sign, other than my username.

It shows up on both posts here. I don't see it on my own post (so it may not show up on your own posts for some reason).

N5IMS, the problem you're seeing is one with the vBulletin software and has been around for ages. I should have "Audio Feed Provider" and "Amateur Radio" on my post, but I won't see them when I submit this reply. For some reason they're not shown on the initial posting of the reply, but if you bring up the thread any other way (from the new posts screen, browsing the site, etc), all the right "badges" or icons will appear.

Mine's showing up now as well. I guess it takes a bit for it to show up on a new post like Jay911 indicates.
