    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.

    Thanks Mike, I wondered about some of the things about this new site as well. Why did we loose our member status? I was a distinguished community member before and now I'm "new"......

    When we upgraded the software I implemented some anti-spam controls. Doing this required a reset of all users post counts in order for it to work properly. All users start with restricted accounts. See my signature for more details regarding that.

    Along with the upgraded software we upgraded the forum structure which is why none of the old threads could be moved over to the new software.

    I have been away from the site for quite a while. I wondered if any of the oldsters are out there still.............. I have gone thru a computer or two and lost touch with the site. It certainly is different. TerriRN

    Terri, it is good to see you found your way back. There are several of us oldtimers still around even if some don't post very often. I hope you can come around and enjoy the new look at this site. It seems people are slowly drifting back in. Big Joe has gone in for another surgery, you can check out his post to get the info.
