    WELL RUNAWAY BUNNY et al.....

    The change takes a bit of getting used to, but change is good!

    Thank you for what I am sure is some very, very hard work, long hours, and pains-taking data-entry. I love the Celtic wallpaper that pops up behind the forum threads.

    ?? Is there a way to put a spell check on the place where the B I U etc is? I would appreciate knowing how to do that.

    GOOD JOB!!!!!!

    Star...what browser do you use? Firefox has its own spellcheck and I assume IE can have one put in.

    I like it better now that Runawaybunny has fixed some of the appearance issues. A lot of my annoyance was due to the png overlay she was using which was so low contrast that I had trouble reading the site.

    It's still a lot to get used to, but at least I can SEE now, LoL

    NOoooooo I WANT my spell check to be up ^ with all the other gadgets. Not php wrap tags around selected text. Sheesh, if I was THAT kind of genius I wouldn't need spell check. Duh.

    Star, I wouldnt be able to post a darn thing if my Firefox didnt spellcheck for As it is, it wants to do spell-check. LOL.

    The internet is a wonderful thing. I dont have to think anymore.

    Star, if you want a very nice spell check, Google Chrome has one as well. It puts those nifty little red squiggly lines under mis-spelled words so they are very easy to spot.

    Like Janet, I love the internet because I don't have to think anymore either.

    And I agree that Runaway Bunny has done a great job with the site upgrade. Still getting used to the elements, but I like it.

    Okay I get LOADS of red squiggly lines.......but HOW do you go about CORRECTING the red squiggles?

    See I did that on purpose. No correction. OHhhhhhhhhhhhhh I see right click. NICE.....Thanks girls.

    I did THAT on PURSPIES too.
    oh it did it a gain.

    Hi! I'm getting used to the change (Great Job Cheryl!). One question: how do you tell if you posted a reply on a thread? There used to be an icon that showed whether you responded or not. I tend to "jump on, jump off" and never know whether I posted or was "formulating a thought" to respond (my brain looks like swiss cheese right now!).

    Here's a question about PM.

    It looks like I can send the same PM to more than one person and it even tells me how to do it with a ; between screen names.

    I know I used to be able to do this but when I try now it tells me that I can only send one at a time. Was this a privilege I had as a mod but don't have anymore or is it a glitch?

    Recipient Users: [BCC Recipients]

    Separate multiple user names with a semi-colon ';'

    Suz, I think it is something you can only do to more than one at a time as a mod. I tried to do it to more than one before and couldnt. I even asked one of you guys...cant remember who...and was told to do it with the semi colon and it didnt work. This was back when I was sending the mass PM's out.

    I just tried it and sent one to you so it worked for me. I sent another one bcc to tm.

    I got it too, Janet.

    I think it's unfortunate that it's not an option for everyone especially since it looks like it should be something we can all do. Maybe RB can flip a switch to activate it for everyone.
