01:31 hamaliya the submit button is not even there. it just lets me preview
01:31 hamaliya i have a problem submitting answers on my webwork. please help
01:32 mgage_ can't help much from here -- you'll have to go through your instructor.  I wonder if you are logged in as guest - what is the user name in the upper right corner
01:32 hamaliya its hh598269 it is my username.
01:33 hamaliya my instructor told me to go to the IT center i did.
01:33 hamaliya they were no help
01:33 mgage_ the other question is whether the set is supposed to be open
01:33 hamaliya it is supposed to be
01:33 hamaliya it is due nov 03
01:33 mgage_ kk
01:33 hamaliya so? any suggestions on how to fix this?
01:33 mgage_ those are the two standard reasons why the submit button don't show
01:34 mgage_ seems to me this happened a few days ago at csun also
01:34 hamaliya that was me -________________________________________-
01:34 hamaliya still havent been able to fix this darn problem
01:35 hamaliya mgage! help me! im going to fail if this isnt fixed!
01:35 mgage_ and it's only you -- not the other students in the class?
01:35 hamaliya nope no one else apparently
01:36 hamaliya i can give you my username and password so you can see for yourself
01:36 mgage_ Well I don't know anyone at CSUN anymore so you'll have to get your instructors attention.  There is a chance that he has reassigned you as a guest by mistake instead of a student
01:37 mgage_ I think you did last time -- I could see it but I can't fix it unless I'm in as a professor and there is a good chance that I would need command line access to the server
01:38 mgage_ there is someone in the math dept or IT at CSUN who is responsible  for webwork so you'll have to get their attention -- take a laptop in and show them your problem.
01:38 hamaliya he has me as a student. he extended the due dates for me so i can fix this problem but its still here
01:39 mgage_ have him check the classlist page and make sure that you have student permissions and not guest permissions
01:40 hamaliya and if thats not the case, then?
01:40 mgage_ no way of trouble shooting long distance without access to the command line
01:41 hamaliya frickn command line
01:41 mgage_ all I have been doing is guessing -- without feedback can't do much more than that
01:42 hamaliya so what do you i should tell my professor about this problem? he is getting extremely annoyed of me
01:42 hamaliya help me mgage! i cant fail!
01:43 mgage_ yes -- it is basically his responsibility to see that the system works -- if he can't fix it himself he can tell IT or whoever maintains the server.
01:43 hamaliya he told me to go to the IT but they were all no help.
01:44 mgage_ I'm pretty sure that it is nothing you are doing or that your computer is set up for.  To be sure you can try logging in from a lab computer but I would be amazed if that made any difference.
01:44 mgage_ not sure I know anyone there anymore -- Ralph Howard graduated from their but that was decades ago
01:45 hamaliya i have tried a laptop, ipad, home computer, every darn thing but they didnt make a difference.
01:45 hamaliya that submit button hates me and wont show up
01:46 mgage_ it's clearly the system -- but I doubt that it hates you.  just tell the prof calmly that the IT people couldn't or wouldn't help and he has to step in  -- also suggest the check about the permission level
01:47 mgage_ that has actually happened before that a student has accidentally been set to be a guest instead of a student and can't do homework.
01:48 hamaliya ok i will check if i have been set to guest on his computer! thank you so much!
01:49 hamaliya do you know anyone in csun that might be able to help me?
01:49 mgage_ it's set to guest in his webwork course -- he has a classlist editor that controls the permission of each student
01:49 mgage_ Shubin is the only prof I know -- she'll know who I am at least
01:50 hamaliya who are you?
01:50 mgage_ but I doubt that she knows anything technical about webwork.
01:50 mgage_ Mike Gage, University of Rochester
01:50 hamaliya aww darn. ok cool thank you mike gage, university of rochester
01:53 hamaliya ok thank you for your help! mike! gotta go!
01:53 hamaliya thanks again
01:53 mgage_ ttyl
01:53 hamaliya i might chat again if the problem still stands
01:53 hamaliya add me on instagram
