Boy am I looking forward to using this...

How does one start an new thread?

I see that one can post attachments. How much and how often?

Blessings!

~Jim

PS: How can one get a cool icon like the one MTan has to display?

Jim: When you enter a forum and see the various threads listed, there is a "New Thread" button at the top and bottom of hte listing. Clicking this will open up an editor.

Registered users are currently limited to 1MB total attachments.

Only BW Staffers have picture icons next to there post. This is to help quickly identify BW posts...

Enjoy!
Michael

Hi, Michael,

Is it possible to subscribe to a Folder, rather than to a single thread?

Hi Philip-

Yes! Check out the "sticky" note at the top of the forum.
The forum is a bit of a different paradigm (with advantages as well as disadvantages).

Michael:

Is there a way to change a username once a person has signed up?

Roger

PS. I think the change was a good idea. The adds were really irritating.

What is the "sticky" - and why can't I see it? :confused:

Roger: No, but I can do it for you. What would you like to be called?Kevin: "stickies" appear as the first messages in a forum. If you enter the "General discussion" forum, you'll see a thread marked "sticky".

Michael,

Thank you. I would like my name to be changed to "Roger Horning" instead of "rogerhorning".

Thanks for the help.

It looks like we are all junior members. At first I thought this has something to do with one's age, but apparently not. What is a junior member?

It looks like we are all junior members. At first I thought this has something to do with one's age, but apparently not. What is a junior member? From the Vbulletin documentation:



The user title manager allows you to set up a 'ladder' of titles that can be applied to users based on the number of posts they have made.

For example, when a user registers he may be given the title 'Junior Member', then when that user has made 100 posts he could be granted the user title 'Senior Member'.

The numbers of posts required to climb each 'rung' of the ladder, and the actual titles given are entirely up to you. It's actually a pretty standard way of doing things on forums, you can tell at a glance who posts regularly on a given forum and is thus probably more familiar with the given topic at hand. Of course that's a generalization but that's the idea.

How about just age to qualify? I might be overqualified to advance!
Just because someone talks a lot does not make one a genius.
Just because I am a member of AARP, does not qualify me for Social Security.
I don't mind being a junior member ---I might be less accountable for my ignorance. :-)

Hi to all the older ones,

I'm 68 years old and have been using computers, less see now, I forgot. But my first one was a Timex Sinclair, with a Z-80 processor and it used CPM as a language. I started to program in D-Base then I went to a Commadore 64, then to a 128, that was back to CPM. Since all that I've been on the PC. I was trying to make a machine run in multi-tasking. Everone I talked to that new more than I, which was many, said; "Can't be done"... Now look at all we can do without even thinking about it. I bet Michael started in DOS programing before he got into Windows and the new Visual languages used today.

Hi All!


The current ladder system is

minimum 0 posts: Junior Member
minimum 30 posts: Member
minimum 100: Senior Member
