    Default Alcoholism, Addiction and Recovery

    I am looking at the AAR forum and am wondering why I can't find my post from after New Year's and as I am scrolling down the Forums page I notice that there are two AAR forums lol. Now how did I miss this? Did everyone else miss it? Am I the only one with her head screwed on backwards lol?

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention. The best solution will be to merge the two. As you point out, it is confusing having two forums with the same name.

    Oh my that's a bit awkward Never noticed the duplicate forum. When I do the update tomorrow night I'll merge the two forums under the general health category.
    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    I have just merged the two Alcoholism, Addiction and Recovery forums into one. The one and only forum with this title is now located under the General Health Issues category. :o
