    Default you leave for months and you come back and there is another rule!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You have reached the maximum number of posts (1) allowed in a 1 minute period for this forum.

    Hey, Mike remember when i could not fix a spelling thing i saw because i did not have enough posts to edit a post??????????????

    with a dial up, one minute is about how long it takes to get anywhere.

    so i don't know if my long thing after my birthday posted or not.

    is auto saved for real????????????????????

    The one minute rule is to prevent spammers from flooding the forums with their garbage. What it means is that after you submit your post, you have to wait 60 seconds before submitting another. I'm not sure how you triggered the one minute rule being on a dial up, as it takes a bit longer for those connections to go through. I misunderstood what you ment in your email. The 1 minute rule is a good thing :)

    Don't worry about "tags" all they do is make it easier for search engines to find a particular post. I haven't explained how to use them here so most people don't :)
    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.
