As a recent newbie.........

 

I didn't put much into my profile as I wasn't sure if I would stay or find the forums useful.  They are, so I'll hang around for a while.

 

I didn't find it difficult to update my profile, but I have set up a signature, which as you can see, doesn't show up.  I don't know if it should show automatically, as I can't find any info on that, nor can I find a little button to click to put it in easily !!

 

I am IT literate, I taught adults in a corporate environment for over 20 years, so can usually find my way around, but have failed with my signature on this forum. :(

 

EDIT:  So why did it show up this time - it must be able to read.

the cone 6 electric site is getting hit by spammers. It is interesting that this group is not a target. In all, This is one of the nicest groups I have encountered.  I was really surprised though when one of my posts got "cleaned up" by the posting software. I was trying to say ###### and "########" turned into "########"

 

Let's see if it happens again when I post this..

 

wow! it won't even allow me to say kerj spelled backward.! hell! damn! crap! ######!

Bob,

 

We are targeted....... they do show up for a short duration from time to time...... we just have a crack Moderator team.  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

 

I'm guessing the "language filters" are the stock ones that come when the forum software is installed. 

 

best,

I still find potters in UK that I have met still use imperial to weight out things. I started doing this but then thought why do I bother. I find it a lot easier to visualize 1kg 500g than understanding what 1pound is or 1 stone...

I don't mind anonimity!

But I can see the rationale behind the geographical location. Metric USA I don't even mind that as I am old enough to have experienced imperial and metric systems, gets pretty amusing when one reads, 0.2 of 2 and 3/4lbs and the like! Makes converting glaze formulas to percentages interesting but then the scientist comes out and says lets use grams and kilogrammes  old Brit spelling there. 

 

I never found it hard creating a profile but I am very good with computers and used forums for years.

 

I enjoy knowing where people are from but it does not make or break a forum. It does make it much easier to identify a personality on the forum and create your own personality. If i signed off my posts in a way maybe you will all think I am somebody else.

 

best,
