PostSubject: need more than heli help   Thu Oct 01, 2009 9:56 am

Hello, o wise users of the forum. Let me see if I can present this question in a way that makes sense. Can someone tell me how to reply to someone who responded to my post without it going to the bottom of my original topic ? Do I need to start a new topic every time that I respond to someone and give that response a new title ??? Is there something like "instant messenger" here ? Or, do I just send an e-mail or private message ? This whole forum thing is new to me. I appreciate your patience and your help.... Dazed and Confused KJ

KJ,

Replies will always go to the bottom of the original thread, and as it grows, builds the history of the discussion.

You can start a new topic if you feel that the original thread has gone too far off track from the original, or can just try to wrangle it back in by posting replies back on the original subject matter. But if you decide to start a new thread topic, try to make a reference back (either by title or hyperlink) to the original thread so that newcomers aren't lost as to the history.

As for Instant Messenger, Nuttcaze did activate the ChatBox feature on the main page, which is pretty nice. The only drawbacks are that you have to manually log into it, and if you navigate away from the main page, there are no notifications that someone is chatting with you until you come back. (Not like regular IM that is in a pop-up window of it's own)

Private Messages (PM) are going to be pretty close, in that if the option is set, a pop-up window will open notifying you that you have a new PM whenever you change pages in the forum (which is usually pretty often if you are cruzing around). PMs also have an option that, if turned on, will generate an email also alerting you to a new message in your Forum Inbox.
Good Luck! :giggle:
