Thought I'd start this topic because I have a question for anyone who is more familiar with this style of board.

On the B/S/T forum, I don't see a place to click to send an e-mail to the person who posted. I want to buy something but can't figure out how to contact the seller! I sent a PM, but if they're not set up to receive them, then that's useless. Help! Any suggestions?

Here's another question for you, Todd. When I looked at my profile, the password *s are way longer than my password has ever been. If it's no longer the password that I set up, how would I ever know what it is? Or do I even need it any more?

Barbara, on my screen, there is a button in the lower right-hand corner of the post, that says "e-mail post." I think that will e-mail the person.

Here's another question. Will we be getting all the cute little things in the subject line of our post like we've had before? There's not many choices right now.

When I click on email post it takes me to a page that it wants me to enter the email address to whom I'm sending it to. I don't know it!

That is a problem. I'm looking, but at this point it looks as if they will have to change their profile to get Private Messages. I'll investigate further. I'm wondering if there may be some different way to handle the buy/sell/traded boards.

I think they just show the stars to hide the actual length of your password. Mine's not that long, and it shows lots of stars too. Your password should not have changed.

The Email Post button is a way to email a copy of the post to someone. To email the poster, at this point you click on their name and select Send a PM (Private Message). I think this was implemented to reduce the chances for Spam robots to find email addresses on Bulletin Board sites.

A little more time consuming, by about a second or two . . . is to click on a users name and view their profile and then a window will pop up with their profile info AND contact info for BOTH email address and private message. Since I don't use Outlook or whatever with my browser, I can simply highlight, copy and paste into an email in my AOL account and send that way. Others should be able to just click on the email address and up will pop your Outlook or ??? and send an email quick and fast just like before . . . almost~~! ;\)

Will there be a way to upload our own avatars? Because...well...not a big fan of any of the ones to choose from, and many forums have the option of linking to your own avatar you make.

Yes, as time permits, I want to add this feature. I have to understand it's impact on my server first.

That's what I ended up doing last night. :-) I use Outlook, so it popped right up with the e-mail address in place, just like old B/S/T. Glad I figured that out because the seller had not yet set up her PM. A lot can be learned by exploring, and it's fun!

As soon as I find out how that affects my server. Soon I hope.

I will be working a lot on things this weekend.
