    Sorry for momentarily hijacking this thread but I thought this was an o.k. spot until some logistics are worked out. I'll delete the message once I track down Kat. Tx.


    I've been trying to reach you but with no luck. Your mailbox on DF is full and cannot accept anymore messages. I've emailed you at the address you sent to me on Friday. Please check and get in touch with me, either thru DF or my Y! account.

    :shock: Just come back to discover the new look DF! Hmm, I think I'll need to play around a bit until I get used to this...

    What's happened to smilies?? The yellow ones don't seem to work... :confused:

    I'm just typing in my lols and other missing emoticons the old fashioned way, if I can remember them. I figure they'll be back, eventually. :cool: (lol I hope I guessed the right long-hand for "cool")

    Ooh! That little triangle thingie at the upper right is a "report bad post" icon. Nice. :cool:

    Ooh! In your profile, you can add someone to your ignore list. I wonder how that works. Gotta try it. :lol:

    It's going to take me a while to get used to active threads meaning "posts since your last visit." Old habits die hard. :neutral:

    This sounds like a great option :)

    Actually, come to think of it, I'd better try the buddy list instead. If I'm trying to be a decent moderator, the people I want to ignore are probably the people I should be paying the most attention to. :lol:

    If you use the "quick reply" at the bottom of the page there are no smililes/emoticons to use. If you use the "post reply" all of the smilies are there. Also make sure in your control panel, choose edit options, and make sure all the way at the bottom in your message editor interface you have AT LEAST standard or full choosen. Basic DOES NOT give you emoticon options.

    Also everyone probably needs to go in and clean out their PM boxes. Somehow, all of the old PMs that you thought were gone are back . And my box had hundreds in it, where the new limit is only something like 50.

    Found it. What used to be called Active Threads (or something like that) is now under "Today's Posts" at the top of the index page. :cool:

    I have increased the number of private messages allowed to 500. This is one difference with the previous software in that there is a limit. I think this is good though, because it helps stop the database from getting too big. If you start getting a large number of PMs it is appreciated if you use the feature to export your messages, and then delete the old ones.

    Thanks DM.

    And, since we're sharing info, by default, the only threads displayed in each forum are those replied to within the last month. Scroll to the bottom of the page and select the timeframe you're interested in, to view more or fewer threads. (Just for those of you who like browsing through the archives :cool:)

    (I hope nobody else mentioned this but I'm too lazy to read all ten pages.

    Thanks! I've been home cleaning (do NOT ask) and sorting and et cetera et cetara and so forth and so on. How can we accumulate so much STUFF in 5 years?

    Anyhoo, got some much needed repairs done.... And if anyone wants to donate a new front loading clothes washer, I wouldn't look at it the wrong way..... Why do my appliances *all* have to break when we have no extra dinero? I've replaced every freaking appliance in my house in the last 5 years and now my washer and dryer are down (for over a month now). Sending my laundry out is nice, but after a while, it doesn't feel that much like a luxury anymore, lol. ;)
