Testing.....

Well at least we can post pictures indirectly.. This one is from my Photobucket

If you go to the far right of the index page, above the last posters name is a link taking you to the latest thread.

We can now edit our posts as well as mark them "all read"

.. and you can add your own pic under your name on the left...

So Far, So Good

Hi YB, Thanks for pointing out the changes.

I do like the "mark all as read".

BUT the thread's "Views" counter is not working!

It's nice that the messages spread out over most of the page now.

It's still a trial to go back to the main page of each forum though, except for the "Chat" forum which has -- at the top -- the links "Home" > "Chat Forum".

The other forums do not.

The problem with returning to the main indexes has been solved.

If you look to the left and just below the date a person joined, if there is an envelope there, you can send them an email it appears

Wow, Way Ta Go!

Thanks YB for contacting Admin, and to Admin for the change!

The email ==aka PM's == are useful too. *grin!*

I'd wondered if once the Web Admin got done with their work extending TOFA to Facebook and Twitter that it would be time to come back to the Forum ... good guess but it doesn't mean I'm gonna take up Poker!!

PM's are back, they're the little envelopes under a person's name on the left side of the message.

Go into your account to add that feature. ;-)

YB!! Wait A Minute on PM'ing

Okay, how do I get the Envelope to show up under my name/pic like YB and Sussexman have?

I went into "My Account", checked "Contact Settings":

(checked) Personal contact form

Allow other users to contact you by e-mail via your personal contact form. Note that while your e-mail address is not made public to other members of the community, privileged users such as site administrators are able to contact you even if you choose not to enable this feature.

When I tried to access "personal contact form", I got:
Access Denied

WHY!?!?!????
