Please Explain the Following....
« on: September 08, 2005, 01:38:05 AM »
Excuse my ignorance about the forum; I am wondering certain forum members have "warned;" I understand "banned" but I see other "stamps" so is there a place of definition about these?

Thanks,
Hadel

The warned 'title', is a reward given to those who have made an impact.

Peace.

Go to the person in question's profile, go down to the bottom of the page, click 'Show the last posts of this person.' and on either the page that comes up or the second page of most recent posts you should find the post for which the warning was given, and the reasoning behind it, from there you are free to draw your own conclusions as to the seriousness or meaning of a particular warning.

Though I am curious as to why Keble has been warned, he's the one person for whom I have been unable to find an 'offending post,' perhaps that was that rather political post in 'The view of Katrina response from Greece' that I seem to remember him posting, yet seems to have been deleted.

I've been wondering the same thing. Thanks for asking the question. Is there a place where we can learn a bit more about some of the inner workings of this forum? For instance, what is the significance of the number of starts that are placed beneath user names?  ???

Alas!! Does that mean that after all this time *I* haven't made an impact?!?? 

 ;D :D ;D ;)

The stars under our names are indications of status/post count, apparently.

One more question:  I would love to upload a picture from my computer's "My Pictures" file, but every time I try to upload one on the profile where an opportunity is given to upload a picture, there is an error due to this bbs not being able to locate the picture.  What to do?

Best wishes,

heheheheh.  But now a question is how to be ummm "unwarned"?  Should I try to "improve" my habits by posting blunt assertions without any back up data?  Make errors on purpose?  What to do?  What to do?  ;D :D

Or is it being pedantic to ask for clarification as to just how much   supporting material is "too much".  so that I can know when I'm skirting the line.  ;)

No indeed, Cizinec, there are no puny stars.  They're all the same size.

Thanks all for your help and laughs! I needed it from the past two weeks!  :D

Also, thank God, we found our Uncle and Family; they lost their house in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, but I am very happy because we found them and they are safe, healthy and alive!

In Christ,
