    Post your ideas for challenges here.
    Like peoples ideas for them to have a bigger chance of being selected for use. The more popular an idea the more likely it is to be chosen.

    melbrandle reacted to Pres in In the Studio Project Image tutorials   
    Oldlady, suggested and Project image tutorial for the QotW. I convinced her that sort of thing really belonged in the "Studio Operations and Making Work" section. She agreed. I am setting this up for anyone that would like to show others a brief tutorial of how to do some technique or project. If you have already done this here, repost it in this area, couldn't hurt. I believe everyone may be looking for something to occupy their time, and this may help.

    melbrandle reacted to Mark C. in Brent Wheels and equipment fix it-videos   
    There has been lots of questions on belts and foot pedal adjustment on Brent/Amaco equipment lately. I have answered most of them.
    This page I posted below answers most of them.
    I'm hoping this will help those in the future with questions-a moderator could pin it in at the top.

    Friends In Clay,,,,,,Periodically it's a good idea for us to remind all forum users, whether you are an active participant, an occasional contributor, or a lurker, to always take advice, especially technical advice, with care. I have not doubt that everyone who gives technical advice is doing so with the best intentions, but you must do your own due diligence by doing additional research into your question. Then, test, test, test,,,,,
    best to all,

    melbrandle reacted to Min in User Beware + Technical FAQ's   
    When looking for answers it’s very helpful for all of those who try and help or contribute to a post to have a rough idea of the original poster's experience or knowledge base in regards to their question. 
    If a member has been posting here for a while we can get an idea of their experience and try and tailor our replies to reflect what we surmise to be their knowledge / experience level. This is really hard to do with new members or those who post infrequently! 
    We all try to be as helpful as possible but the answers can, at times, be more confusing than the questions. Mentioning your experience should get you more relevant answers than us overloading information but we can’t do this without an idea of knowledge / experience.
    Including as many details as possible, photos if relevant, and knowledge / experience relevant to the question being asked will hopefully aid everyone is both giving and receiving their questions and comments.
    Thank you

    melbrandle reacted to Kaitlynne Flanigan in Quick Guide to Using the Forum   
    When using the Community Forum as a guest you can browse the Forums, Gallery, and do a search for content, but you are limited in your actions. You are unable to post, reply to a post, or message another forum member directly.

    The screenshot above shows the top of the default homepage, you can see when viewing as a guest. This page lists the 10 categories available to view in the Community Forum.
    The yellow arrow points to the “Search” area. To search a topic, you can search the entire forum or search within a specific category after clicking on one of the 10 categories. Your search can be refined on the search page that will pop up after entering your search terms.

    The Search function excludes archived threads. Archived threads are closed to addition and edits. Threads transition to "archive" when they have not been added to (or edited) for two years. To search archived threads, use an external search engine; enter your search terms and CeramicArtsDaily.
    The blue arrow points to the “Sign Up” tab, while the red arrow points to where to “Sign In” after becoming a member if you sign out.
    The purple arrow points to the “Gallery” tab. After clicking on the Gallery tab, you will see a page with the most recent new image (s) posted to the Gallery in the upper left corner of the page. Just above these images will be a tab labeled "Browse Members Galleries.” Click on this and you will be taken to the Browse Members Galleries page with directions on how to do so.
    The pink arrow will take you back to the home page with the list of the various Forums.

    The screenshot above is what the top of the homepage looks like when you are signed in.
    The orange arrow points to the "Start new topic" tab. You are able to write a new topic post, choosing the forum you would like to post to. It is required in a post that you have a title, and your actual text. You can add photos, tags, and also choose if you would like to be notified of replies. You can write a post as a guest, but it will not be published unless you are signed in. To the left of this are 3 options for Forum layout.
    The lime green arrow points to the "Recent Status Updates" section. Similar to a Facebook news feed, this is just a casual section where members can post comments about what they have going on at the moment. It's not recommended to post questions or responses here. 
    The royal blue arrow points to the "Private Message" envelope. By clicking the envelope on this page, a pop-up window will open up and you can send a private/direct message to another Community Forum member. You can also message another member by clicking on their name next to one of their posts. The member will get an email letting them know they have a message. This is very useful if you wish to contact another member who hasn't been active on the Forum for some time. Members have the option of opting out of receiving messages.
    Next to the private message icon, the bell icon will show your recent notifications. 
    The brown arrow points to the "Activity" tab. This is another way to look through posts, it lists the most recent activity first. This function is available to view as a guest, but the ability to reply to a post via the text bubble beside each post is not available unless you’re signed in.
