How to use the Site

Postby tykeman on November 2nd, 2011, 4:35 pm

Sorry if this is posted inthe wrong place ...

But....

Is there a way to rank the posts I am seeing

What I am thinking is when I go on the forums , the are lots of threads .....

I am thinking maybe I could chip in , but then notice last post was 2009 ...

Is there any way to see threads that are CURRENT , with reasonably recent posts rasher than yrs ago & prob finished ???

Thanks in advance

except for "sticky" posts at the top, the newest posts come first. Start at the top and work your way down and the messages will get older.

Hi Darylder,
stickies are posts located always onthe top of the forum, and they ususally have an icon (picture) at the left side looking a bit like a bulb shape. Those posts would never move from the top and they usualy contain impodtant information.

for example, if youy look here (by clicking on the link)
viewforum.php?f=3
you could see about a five top posts with the 'bulb' icons, including very important called "Why you do not have ALS (part 1)" and "BFS in a nutshell".

Hi,
as for the user name - I am not sure, probably you should write a message to our moderators at [email protected] or send them PM. Mods are those whose names are highlighted in green, actually users Johnv, Arron and garrym/
looks like Johnv is dealing with all issues like keeping accounts etc.

try also to look here
faq.php

I have seen for sure several persosns presenting themselves as 'Former XXXX, now YYYYY" so generally there is a way to do so.

regards
