    Question Global Threads

    ((((((Mike))))))

    Is it possible for the Global threads to be stickied at the top of each forum's list of threads? Clumped together at the top, rather than interspersed throughout the forum among other threads?

    Just asking ...

    Thank you for all that you do, Mike.

    Love & Light,

    If the global thread is important enough (say for an extended downtime for upgrades or what not) it will be stickied. The current global threads aren't all that important (the first one was just a test, and the email situation has been resolved) and in fact I think I'll un-global (yay new word ) the email one
    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.
