Tech Questions?

Postby Eri » Sun Sep 21, 2008 12:33 pm

Mod Edit: As of May 2010, we're changing how we handle tech questions. Instead of having a single thread for people to post their questions on, we're going to allow posters to start their own topics in the Accident Forum. Allotting each new topic a thread of its own makes it easier for subsequent users to see if their own question has already been answered.

But please people...this only works if users don't jump in and ask their question without looking to see if there's already a thread for it. Take the time to look through this forum and the FAQs in the Newborn Forum before starting a new topic. If we get inundated with duplicate topics, we'll have to rethink letting people start topics in this forum.

Since this thread is no longer necessary, it's being locked.




Bella_Cullen_13 asked for a topic where people could post questions or doubts related to the internet or computing stuff and I thought it would be a good idea, but i'd also like to have this topic tidy and not full of random and out of topic questions, and I know you can do it ;)

So, we could post a question each day (if people really have a question) and the rest of us could help that user giving some tips or explaining how to solve the problem

Is there a way to delete a post once I've posted it?

Nope, no delete... I just have edit and quote buttons. I wanted to delete because (I'm a newbie), I had posted an item, then found a better place for it in the forum. I didn't want to double post. So, I looked for delete and couldn't find it. Then I tried to edit and just erase everything, but the system wouldn't let me re-post. Oh well. Live and Learn!

Yeah, no delete buttons for registered members. If you need to delete something don't hesitate to send a private message to a Moderator or administrator! ;)

Okay, this may sound really stupid (as I'm just not that tech saavy for forums), but how do I find a moderator to do this? How do I know who is a moderator? I don't need one now, but for future reference... My problem post is doing okay now, but I may want to move it around later.

When you look at forum members, if our name comes in green it means we're mods (as Nena and me). The Forum admins like Pel or Alphie come in red, that's a way for you to "see" us more easily

Are you talking about the little circles?
If so, I think each one has recent post meanings. Rollover it with your mouse and you'll see some of them say "new posts" or "no new posts". I'm not sure what the static one means, so i'm wondering that too.

Purple- No new posts
Aqua- New posts

I'm pretty sure it'd specific to what you just looked at, so it's different for everybody. Hope that helps!

Just adding to what Eri said, At the very bottom of the page there is a link that says "The Team". This lists all the moderators and administrators.
