I just started two new threads. Before I started them, I searched to make sure there were not threads already posted on my topics, and I looked over my choices of forum groups before deciding where to post my new threads.

I settled on "Above Politics" for both threads because looking over the threads that were listed under it, I thought it most closely matched my topics.

Then, after I posted the threads, I noticed the message at the top of each thread, "Discuss political issues in other regions around the world."

I am dismayed because I don't know what "other regions" entails. And my threads are about my own country.

Should my threads be moved?

The threads in question are:

"Tyranny in the U.S. - A Year in Jail Without Due Process"

"Web of Debt by Ellen Hodgson Brown, J.D."

I see no reason to move your threads.
Looking though the other threads on that board it looks like yours fit right in.

If a Mod sees a problem they will move them and send you a u2u with a message saying why it was moved, plus a link to the new location.

Nice threads by the way....

Is this the same as the store where books and posters are sold? I can't find where to redeem points.

At the bar on the top of every page you'll see a box that says "member tools".

Click that, and scroll down to "ATS Store", click on that.
You can use points to customize your sidebar.


EDIT: I just peeked at your points.
You don't have enough to do any improvements yet, but give it a week.

I just typed a "Bio" on the "Your ATS Account Settings" page and submitted it. The screen didn't change after I submitted it, and it didn't populate on my Public Profile.

Should the Bio populate on the Public Profile, or is it for some other purpose?

The site has screwed up code in places, I don't think Bio. is used anymore.

My page shows a warning on the right side about my avatar:



Though I store the image on cachefly and use that url, I'm sure you can still see it.
(can you see it ?)

Even after all the years I've hung my hat here, I don't understand half of it.:shk:

Yes, I can see it.

When I look at your page, I don't see the warning...

Okay. Thanks.

On the profile page, where it shows your thread titles, what is the "views"? My threads have replies but "0" views. How can that be?

You used to be able to see how many times your thread was looked at, but that feature was disabled, so it just reads "0".

The Bio doesn't work; the views doesn't work; I can see why the site is going through a Redesign!

Thanks.

Thanks.

Interesting what he says about "automated bots and search engine spiders."

So the "views" field needs to be removed...

This question is about the buttons that appear above "BEFORE YOU REPLY, make every post matter" when we compose our posts.

I guess the info about the buttons and the difference in output (for the ones that aren't obvious by looking at the icon) is in the Handbook which is not available.

Is there another source for the info?

I've had a second incident of a message popping up telling me I put a new thread in the wrong forum.

I just submitted "Obama's Financial Reform Package" under "Political Issues." This message popped up at the top of the new thread after I hit post, not before, "Discuss the escalation of tension and war in the Mid-East."

Huh?

Still just another hold over from when there was an ATS, BTS, and a PTS.
PTS is gone, but the message remains.

As the site goes through this next set of upgrades those should go away.
Patience my friend, it's gonna get worse before it gets better.

Oh!!

I didn't know there was ever a "PTS."

Sounds like I need to start ignoring things.

Thanks again.

Your question was directed at someone else so I hope you don’t mind me stepping in here but this is IMO a great tutorial for avatars.

How to Make and Upload your AVATAR to your ATS profile. Step By Step Guide

Hope you find it helpful.

How do I post a signature? My age dictates that I never received a formal training at school and just had a computer presented by a new employer, told how to switch on and off, then told you will learn by playing. It crashed many times.
