Hi guys!

I know that at first things may look different than at IDF and you may need support (techie and emotional)!

So this is a thread to ask questions which I will try to answer ASAP to make your transition smoother.

It's also a place where you can discuss the board at large... What you like / don't like about it... More heads are better than one and God knows we have some clever members!  :wink:

Once I start getting questions, I will post the answers in an organized fashion (pfffftttt! This is ME you're talking to!!!  :laugh: ) in the next post(s).

IF YOU HAVEN'T DONE SO ALREADY, COULD YOU GO TO YOUR PROFILES AND PUT IN A STATE/PROVINCE FOR THE US/CANADA PEEPS AND COUNTRY FOR THOSE OUTSIDE OF THE US/CANADA, SO I CAN GET A FEEL FOR THE TIME ZONES.

IF YOU WANT TO HELP... WE NEED PEOPLE TO BRING IN POSTS FROM IDF FOR ALL THE QAL 2015 UK/EUROPE TOUR. ONCE YOU'RE ASSIGNED A THREAD, YOU CAN DO IT AT YOUR OWN PACE!

First, go to IDF and 'reply' to the post you want to bring here...


The top two lines will look like this:

[quote name='madamimadam' date='Apr 11th 2015, 5:54 PM' post='26791642']
Hi guys!


Only select and copy from the apostrophe before the poster's name until the end of the post EXCLUDING [/quo te].

Then come to your post here and paste it here... It should look like this...

'madamimadam' date='Apr 11th 2015, 5:54 PM' post='26791642']
Hi guys!


The next thing is to get rid of the post number which is irrelevant here... So select the portion in italics.... and hit enter. This will create a blank line between the two top lines.

Your post will now be looking like this...

'madamimadam' date='Apr 11th 2015, 5:54 PM'

Hi guys!


Now you're good to post. Ctrl-A will select the entire post, select the Quote box above, hit submit.

The end result will look like this:


'madamimadam' date='Apr 11th 2015, 5:54 PM'

Hi guys!



It sounds like a lot of steps, but trust me, once you get the hang of it, it becomes second nature... And the beauty of this board is that you can go edit and fix anything you did wrong or if it's too much of a mess, just ask a mod or me to delete the post for you.

And then, to make matters worse, I thought I had set up the board's email address to forward ALL mail to my regular account...  Guess what? It doesn't! So I kept trying to get these poor people in and kept clicking on the same wrong thing!!!!

But it's all good now! I've opened registration to everyone without needing approval, so hopefully, "I built it", so "They will come"

SVCA, I just read at IDF that you still don't know how to get an avi. Go to your profile, scroll down and upload a picture for your avi... No more than 20K though.

Question....what's the difference in the Quick Post and the regular posting?

Also, it's taking a long time to be able to post...is that my computer or is that happening for everybody?

I know how to get the pic, but it keeps saying they're too big.

Not sure how to get them smaller  :sad:

Quick post is where you can add a post without having the bells and whistles that you get on a regular reply. Quick and dirty.

There's a delay set up by the board to prevent spamming. After you reach a certain amount of posts, it gets lifted and then you can post to your heart's content!
