Forum Questions, Concerns, Befuzzlement

Unread post by Irina » 11 Nov 2014, 14:34

welcome to van forum, new or returning poster!

since you registered an account with us, you might as well stick around for a discussion or two. this thread is a place for your forum related questions or concerns - post them here and we'll do our best to answer them. do you know how to post a picture? how about a youtube videos? do you know how to put up an avatar? how to add a signature? are you allowed to change your nick name? what are the rules? where are the mods? how difficult is it to build a profitable forum/blog? where do forum babies come from? - this is the thread to talk about anything you always wanted to know about forums but were afraid to ask. we probably won't have all the answers, but we'll make sure to offer our best guesses.

so there. geronimo!:)

Late edit: this is a neutral topic.

I've been framed! I had nothing to do with this! I merely suggested a welcome thread so that newcomers could be lulled into a false sense of security. :tongue:

By the way, what happened to the funnies thread? Are you short on glue?

But stickies bring in customers. They're like anchor tenants in a shopping mall. All you have now is a welcome sign.

As if anyone could twist your arm. :D         Besides, I'm not the arm twisting type. :flowers:

Aside from ones double dot has buried under the sunflowers in Armstrong not many.

Perhaps we could do up a bit of a welcome greeting card for new folks using members greetings to new posters.



Perhaps a pastel coloured card with flowered border..


So it goes.

Hi Harry, good memory! And who would forget such a gem. However, the idea behind starting this thread was to make a safe area for newcomers, so that they are not greeted with such language the minute they walk in. If they decide to stick around, they'll surely see stuff like that sooner or later, but hopefully in the meantime they get an opportunity to like something about this place too. On that note Harry, please remove that quote if you don't mind, hope that's ok to ask without having to amend the rules to say "no mudslinging in the welcome thread".

It was only there as a cautionary tale and best forgotten.

hi rdl, only admin function can add or remove subdivisions to the forum. so joe requested his preferred structure from the admin and admin made it for him. PM "back" and you'll get the same for the island.
