Although I am not a newcomer I recently returned to the board after a lengthy illness and found I had forgotten how to start a topic or even participate in existing topic. Is there information somewhere that I can follow to again enjoy and participate in the GG Discussion Boards??

Note, I finally noticed technical support which allowed me to post the above request.

Responses from any source will be much appreciated.

Thanks Jockh, I think you raise a very valid point and, funnily enough, this was something I had been thinking about earlier today on reading some posts from new members who had commented about how difficult it was to get 'orientated' on such a big board.

I was thinking that it's not just a techinical issue, although, as you say, the practical processes for posting should be better outlined. I'm also thinking that – in addition to the board rules – there should be more information about expected board 'etiquette'.

Please leave this with me and I will have a further think.

Thanks for your post, and I would appreciate any input from other members if you have any thoughts.

GG.

Sort of. biggrin.gif



Martin ... a big help; not only for newbies, would be a topic search that gets you at least near to the topic instead of giving a 40 page list of topics which have nothing to do with what the search is about.

I have been a member of this board for over 7 years now and have never had any difficulty finding my way around, in fact I find iit very easy compared to other boards that I hae given up on. I agree that some sort of etiquette rules would be beneficial especially with personal comments about other posters and also swearing, even with the ** inserted.

GG, I think there is a need for, at least, some basic instructions on using the boards. I have lost count, for instance, the number of times someone has asked how to post a photo. Despite having been on the boards for a couple of years, I have no idea what the +multi button is for unsure.gif I also agree about making the etiquette clear as well.

Some simple guidance on the board fuctions would be very welcome.

I didn't either, Ashfield until you mentioned it. If you place your cursor over the "Multi" button for a couple of seconds, the message comes up "toggle multiquote addition". So, I would guess it must be if you want to add more than one quote to a reply you are makings.

Thanks for all the comments. Before we ask GG for a complete manual, please don't forget my initial request for a Beginners tutorial Re; How to access topics, how to participate in topics, how to start a new topic and board etquette.
Maybe we'll end up with Three or more manuals - Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced etc.

Thanks everyone

Aye, often wondered aboot that but never really bothered as it is too complicated fur me after a few wee swallies.

If ye hover yer moose over the "multi" field a tool tip will be displayed "toggle multiquote selection"

Now you can me ask me wan on particle physics or 60's music. Howeffer, as to the usage of the multi thingie, this leaves me in the dark seeking dark matter and little green men.

Maybe I should read the help files, wid help if ah could read.
