*looking around*

Where am I?

It looks friendly enough, but...

Re: Learning our way around this board:


The time showing on posts must be from somewhere in the Zarkon Nebula, and in the control panel I see nothing that addresses this. What am I missing?

Re: Learning our way around this board:


Question: Is there a thread that is purely social? One in which we don't discuss anything political and don't carry on with personal grudge matches?

The board from which I've arrived had a bar, with a fictitious bartender and a fictitious server. We exchanged social news there and generally cheered each other through difficulties.

Is there something similar here?

Re: Learning our way around this board:


When I was posting yesterday, I noticed that new posts on a thread had a little red dot next to them. Later, they didn't and today they don't.

Did I turn something on or off?

Re: Learning our way around this board:


I don't think so. I used to have a fictional bar on my first board but not here. Feel free to set up any opening post you like. We talk about anything and everything around here. Its a very relaxed atmosphere.

Re: Learning our way around this board:


1. Is it possible to adjust the time showing on posts?

2. What happened to the little red dot next to new posts that I saw yesterday but don't see today?

3. Thanks for the OK to set up a social thread.

On the drop down under your name at the upper right, then under the tab Miscellaneous Information, there is a setting for Location.
Mine is set to "Mountain Time".

But lately since advertising has taken over, I can't seem to change mine any more?

Re: Learning our way around this board:


Thanks, Rigby. I had written the name of my city, and now it won't let me change it.

I see the board admin can change it in her board controls, but maybe she hasn't looked for it. It's a little box that should be set to GMT -4.

EDIT: Rose, here's where to find it:
Control Panel
Board Management: The political [sign in to see URL]
Set Misc Options
The Political Grill offset to GMT (UTC) (in hours): -4

That will post Eastern Daylight Time. When we switch to standard time, it will need to be changed to -5.

I usually ask Rigby to handle that sort of stuff. What do you say Rig?

Sure, no problem, but if it is in the board controls, you would have to make me a moderator for a day or 2 I would think.

Sorry to be late in noticing this post, since I have been spending a lot of time up at my Mt. Taylor get away, that does not have internet yet.

First I need to understand more what is noticed as needing fixing.
When I look at the date/time stamp for this post, on the bottom line, I see:

8/17/2017, 4:18 am

The date looks pretty good to me.
Is it the time that is off?

As for the red dot, I don't see that myself.
What I see it a little icon of an envelope to the left of any thread that has new postings since the last time I looked at the thread.
If I look at the thread, the envelop icon disappears.
Could this be at all related?

posticon Re: Learning our way around this board:


Hi all,

I've finally made my way back here (aka "luv2gel" - having to do with some of the candles I make.) Since the board moved a while back, I have visited to read sometimes, but I've been keeping busy. I'll try to stop in from time to time!

P.S. I've figured out how to change my location, so maybe my posting time will be more accurate, as my first post wasn't at 2am.
