    The right side was meant to be a history of BT throughout the years but has been placed on hold while other things were addressed. I'm thinking about other things to place in that area (as well as a new different look) like a "member of the month" type of thing. There are some other behind the scenes stuff that I still need to address, the many years of neglect left a lot of work to be done to return BT to it's former glory.

    for you as well

    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 just noticed on the Home Page Top 10 Posts a post to the Moderator Forum. Might I suggest that you make that Forum private? If it's possible to take the Moderator Forum off of the Top 10 list, I think that would be a good idea. We don't need to see the spammers' names, etc. in titles, then if we click on that post, we discover it's closed to Moderators only.

    Just a thought ...

    Thanks for all that you and our Moderators do to make BT a safe place.

    Love & Light,

    I thought I responed already. I have Bain Talk home room at the top of my computer so I can just click once & I'm here. I became a member over 25 years ago. I wish live chat was still here, I used to go every day & met several ppl. who are now friends. (I had 3 epileptic seizures & went to the hosp. then rehab., when I came back on the comp., live chit chat was gone & I didn't know what to do).
