Todd, when I checked My Profile, I notice the email address showing was about 5 years old. When I tried to update to my current one, it says it is being used by another member. What's up with that?

Email me the old and new emails and I will try and figure it out.

Deanna, could it be my "alter-ego" or does this mean I have a split personality??

maybe you are a Gemini???

I like the multiple quote things vs. how it use to work on the OLD board . . . this is neat when trying to clarify who/what you are replying to in an ongoing thread. Cool.

Thanks for the info on the avatars. I stuck a generic one on for now, but will look for a more personal one. How do you make your own photos small enough to use? Most of mine are too large.

Cathy, if you re-registered when the board changed (a few years ago), you my have a split identity. To figure out if you have more than one identity, select the 'User List' tab and then find any old aliases (or modifications of you current name) that you may have used in the past. I know this happened to me, I had "KCC Pursuit" and "KCCPursuit".

Cathy, some how you had duplicate memberships. I merged them and hope all is well now. Certainly increased your post count!

KCCPursuit You do show up with a duplicate. I can merge them. Which is correct? Include the correct eMail address.

I admit to being only marginally computer literate. Can anyone tell me how to reduce the size of a photo file so I can use it as my avatar? Any advice would be appreciated.

Todd, I hope I'm posting this in the right place for you to see it... The other day, I had 2727 posts. Now, it shows just 837. I'm really confused.

That doesn't appear to be an option. However, if you log in, the next time you open a topic that has new posts you will be taken to the newest post.


Except that sometimes mine seems to miss some posts that I haven't read. I thought that I had read all of today's post. Just now as I was just going back through some of the posts looking at tips, etc, I found some on this thread that I had not read. P.S. And, I stay logged in all the time, so that should not have been the cause.

And, how come the threads are showing up in only somewhat chronological order? All the current day will be together, but the time is kind of jumbled. Not necessarily newest to oldest.

I've not seen that behavior. It always seems to take me to the newest post that I haven't read. If you never leave the site, however, new posts can be added after you get there, and it might not go to the newest post that was there when you first arrived.... I don't know.

As far as the newest to oldest. I am able to designate some topics as "sticky" which means they stay at the top. So non-sticky topics with newer posts may show up under these sticky posts. Right now, I have several posts related to the new boards designated as sticky, so they stay at top. They have a little yellow symbol to the right of the topic name to indicate that they are sticky. After a while there will be less need for sticky posts and it will look more normal.

Also, as I've said a couple of times, if you want to go straight to the last post, click on the link in the right column instead of on the topic name. You can then scroll up (instead of down, like you used to) and get the same affect. Personally, I prefer seeing the first post I haven't read as opposed to seeing the last post first! Since it doesn't appear to be an option, to reverse the order, we will have to get used to it.

You apparently were another of those people who somehow had duplicate (but slightly different) IDs. I've merged them and you should be good now.

I think I answered my own question on this by going to reply rather than quick reply.
