You can put your real name in your profile and make it private so only you and administrators can see your real name.

If you want too, you can do as I have done, since I am fond of my user ID, I put my real first name in parentheses next to it.  This way, some people that personally know me call me Rod on the forums while others refer to me as DepressionScripGuy.  This way everyone has a better idea who they are talking too / about.

If you decide to add your birthday to your profile, DO NOT put in the year.  This is an identity theft thing.  With your name and full birthday it's easier to gather more info on you for all the wrong reasons.  Just use the day and month.  I haven't found and option to turn off the year input yet.

Pictures can be hosted on this site or you can continue posting them on a 3rd party site and posting a link here.  Either way works and it makes it nice for both new and advanced users at the same time.

Posting a link using the link button above will take both HTTP and HTTPS web address.  Both work just fine and you don't have to specify one over the other.

A blue dot next to a catagory or forum thread means there is something new in there that you have not read yet.  When you click on a topic with a blue dot, give it a second and the webpage should jump right to the latest post that you have not read.  This a real nice feature if you ask me.

To answer the question from one member, the REPUTATION # that shows on your profile is the number of likes minus the number of dislikes a user's posts receives.  This is the thumbs up or down button at the bottom right corner of every post.

And for those that are not computer savvy....  You can enlarge or shrink a webpage very easily with your keyboard and mouse.

Warning - doing this causes it to stay that way for all websites until you change it to something else.

Simple as just holding the CTRL key and using your scroll wheel on your mouse to zoom in or out on a page.  This way you can make the text and pictures bigger or smaller.  Scroll up to zoom in, scroll down to zoom out.  You can also do this with just the keyboard by pressing and holding the CTRL key then hit the + or - buttons.  Same effect.  In the web browser Chrome, it will actually tell you what percentage you are set at.  I usually keep mine at 125%.

I did increase the font size of this forum just because I had several people tell me that it was too small.  I can adjust it back down if everyone thinks it's a bit much....

How do I print a thread's content?

At the bottom left of the thread, there is a print icon.  Click on that and it will bring up a printable version of the thread.  But, all pictures will be shown as actual size so they may not fit on the paper.  Then just go to the print option of your browser and print that page.  Most browsers will accept CTRL P as a hotkey to bring up the print window.

I do not know how to create a new topic so I will just communicate my information and hope other members will read it and find it helpful.

I found out recently about the PMG Registry and when I was entering some foreign notes for China the sets I needed did not exist.

I sent an email to the Registry email and the China Sets I needed were created.

If anyone has any notes in a personal Set for the new sets created you can now input them to the competitive sets.

If any member can send me a private message on how to create new topics I would appreciate the assistance.

Thanks

Doug

Hi everyone, I just joined the forum a few days ago. How are you guy's taking pictures to post? When I take pictures with my digital camera with the flash on it shows the flash on the holders. With the flash off it just looks a bit dark. Currently I do not own a scanner. Thanks

A flatbed scanner is always best.  But for taking an actual picture of your note.  Try using very bright natural light.  One of the best results I have found is in my kitchen at noon when the sun is shining in at it's brightest.  You will have to experiment a bit and move around to get the right angle of your camera compared to the angle of sunlight coming in etc...

If you're trying to enter the contest, any picture is better than nothing.  As long as you can see what the note is, go ahead and post it.  Not a big deal.

Thanks Rod. I just ordered a scanner. I am no photographer so that should work a lot better.
