Here's a silly but basic question.

When I go into a topic area and finish reading a thread, how do I go back to the board as a whole?  I've been clicking on the Home link at the upper left, ehich works fine, but are there other handier links to get back to the topic area itself?

Great job, by the way.  Nooks and crannies everywhere!

Try clicking the topic name and see if that gets you where you want to be.  For instance, click "Induction Center" in the scary green font above.  If you want to return to the main page, clicking Home is the best way.  Clicking "We bid you welcome" will accomplish the same thing.

Hi David. Nice to see you here among us! Raymond has pointed out the best and only ways (so far) to navigate back to the main forum or to a board category. There is also another navigation feature that you may find at the bottom right corner of the screen. It's called the "jump to" option. Unfortunately, it's not very user friendly at the moment because of the GIFs that I used to name the individual boards in place of using raw text. This results in a rather cryptic looking navigation tool. You will notice that while the categories are showing, the boards are not, but rather symbols. The "jump to" feature still works though. I hope to correct this option in the near future.

Hello Dr. Ruth, I have a question...  Ooops, wrong board.

I want to add a pic to my profile.  Do I have to put it on a website?  Can it pull if from my C drive or can I copy it to my profile?  If I have to put it on a website, do you have any recommendations?

Thanks!
BK

You'll need to load it up to some webspace of your own. Either of these are good for such things. Also good for when you want to post a pic of something in a message.

If you're doing an avatar, be sure to crop it square (so it doesn't distort) and make it at least 100x100.

How do you delete a post? I checked out the Help section and saw instructions on how to do it but I'm not seeing a delete option when I try to modify the post. I must be missing something.

Hello John. The way we have it set up right now is that members are free to modify their own posts, but not delete them. This was done as a preventative measure against somebody flaming some one, receiving fair and due criticism in return, and then simply turning around and removing their post altogether thereby making everyone else's posts look awkward and out of place. Even a post that is not abusive in nature when deleted can disrupt the continuity of the entire thread. Members who wish to change their posts can do so with the "modify" button. You can wipe out everything there and edit away. But at least that way, other members can still see an original post existed and that it was edited at a later time. Am I making sense here?  :)

OK, I'm on the UMA board having a good time when my wife walks by.  She says,"You have Captain freakin' Kirk as your avatar?  This is the UMA son not a Star Trek geekfest!  Get with the program!"  So I scurry across the net and find one that suits my screen name.  Please forgive this soldier for a slight breach of decorum.

Well, it was a Capt Kirk mask that was used for the first Halloween movie, so that kinda fits... ;D

I like your new one better though ;)
