Thumper's Corner  Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

We have had literally thousands of posts and hundreds of thousands of readers in the last two years! Your posts are key to making this discussion board thought provoking, interesting, and informative.

The Ground Rules:

(1) Constructively criticize, do not maliciously disrespect (“Flame”) another poster, author, book, culture, or ethnicity.

(2) Assume other posters adhere to rule #1. In the global microcosm, of this discussion board, an innocent statement in one culture may be considered a serious insult in another. So be tolerant of others if they “come across wrong” initially.

(3) Don't be afraid to post for fear of spelling errors or other typos.

(4) Ignore “inappropriate” posts. Occasionally someone will post a message you may feel is inappropriate for this discussion. Simply ignore it. If it is really “off the wall” Thumper or I reserve the right to delete that post.

Can I put html tags anywhere in my posts?

No. You can not use HTML tags in any field except body of the message. The maintainer of the script has the option of allowing or disallowing any HTML in the Message part of your posting. If they disallow it, the script will just throw out everything in <>'s. If they allow it, your html markup will appear in the posting. It can't hurt to try.


Why are there colons in the message when I try to post a followup?

Colons appear in the message dialog box when you try to followup up on a message to indicate that those lines are quoting the previous document. The owner of the WWWBoard can decide whether they wish to enable or disable the quoting of previous messages.


Why didn't my post show up?

Your post most likely did not show up, because your browser did not reload the page, it simply pulled it out of cache. Please reload your browser and it should then appear.
