Mr Charter could be right, maybe people don't know what the Post Reply button is for or perhaps they don't know how to use it. So let's try and rectify that possibility. I am putting myself out here for criticism but my intentions are good.

step 1: After reading an article or publications of any kind, to make a reply one must first, LOG IN. (give nick name and pass word in the two spaces provided for them). To Log In, go to the "FORUM". to the far right of the Forum index-> Pool Checkers, click on Log in. Once you're logged in, you are ready for step 2.

step 2: Go to the bottom of the page of the article you wish to reply to and click on "Post Reply". A blank page will appear, there you may type your reply to the article/publication. Once you've completed your comments, go to the bottom of the page and click on submit. Your comments will appera before you shortly and you may check your writings. If you feel you've made an error or wish to add or delete something then you can do so by clicking on "edit" and make the necessary correction. Have fun in making your reply.

It was unbeknowing to me that this same instructions were posted elsewhere. Consequently, if this posting is not clear enough for you additional and perhaps more vivid instructions and more detailed is listed to the right of the bulletin board (bb) under help. There you will find: How to Register, How to Log in, How to Post a new topic, How to Post reply and How to edit/delete post.

Hey, you are quite right! It was some time before I began to get the swing of it. Even though the Help button is there, you just don't get around to following the steps.

I am especially grateful that you Mr Charter, and you Mr Pecan made a reply to my comments/instructions on How to Use the "Post Reply" button. In addition as to where the original How to was/is located. Your reply make me feel that somebody is reading and can appreciate the efforts that all of us are putting into this site to communicate ideas and help to get them there. It is not about me, or about Pecan, or about Charter, but it is about checkers, communicating checkers to the viewing audience. That's what this site is all about.

Thank you Mr Charter and Mr Pean for your warm and delightful reply. You know first hand how a reply is always helpful and encouraging. I know a couple of viewers read it and brouht to my attention that it was already posted elsewhere, but this in my opinion should have been put in a reply. But it worked out great, I feel good although it was already posted. I believe we sometimes have to take some viewers by the hand (sot-of speak). They are like babes, because they don't know nor understand the mechanics of computer - cyper. I know because I was like that. Mr Charter took me by the hand and walked me thru many instructions, he was there for my short-comings, and believe me I had many. But that's what it's all about, "What Ever it Takes".

Again thanks for your warm and kind replys.

B, Joey Bumpous

Mr. Filippov, the reason I did not reply is that we discussed your initial post over vog2 messege which I saved. I brought it to your attention that the help button next to the bulletin board was self-explanatory and that your post was duplication. I also assisted you with posting your email address explaining to you that one should continue to read all of the instructions to adding their name to the bb's memberlist. I felt that after our discussion and your efforts to read the help menu for the bulletin board, I need not respond. That too would have been duplication. We all have short comings when it comes to completely reading and following instructions. I must admit, I am also guilty of failure to read instructions and most times find it easier if someone would tell me how to do it. Sometimes, I even use excuses or blame others for my failure in effort to conceal these short comings.

I think Pecan won the big prize today - he is the first of the players to figure out how to use the quote tag!

On a sadder note - it is only us four that write on BB - no other players here. But once you start writing it gets addictive!

You do error sir, it is not about being first or last, it is about knowing how it works. In your bulletin board (bb) Help, I didn't/don't see anything about how to use the quote button. However, when it is used, it looks most distinguished. Maybe you should post somewhere how to use quote button, since it is so often said the help is there. However, I must admit Mr Charter, had you not made the observation, I probably would not have realized it's usage, so thank you very kindly, I'm learning.

This is Mrs. Filippov again and I think this is very educational. Look what all was learned: dublication, how to make a quote, how to use the various help on the bulletin board, and most of it was very warm and kindly said. I enjoyed very much all the replys that were made. Thanks to all of you for making my day with such interesting reading.

You are most welcome Mrs. Filippov, especially since it was your feminine touch that started this burst of exchanges! This is how BB should be - a happy place, with ideas flying, good humor, and respectful attitude!

Well, I am glad you asked icon_exclaim.gif

All the help has been written, over and over, thosands of times in thousands of places!
For example when you are in the Edit Mode you might notice a blue BBCode to your left under the word Options.
Why don't you click it? When you do you might realize that I can not possibly provide ALL the answers;
The best I can do is to start you off using help, but then you should learn to be icon_idea.gif self-reliant! icon_rolleyes.gif
