I agree that the old threads should be brought here. For me absolutely important to see the thread Recipes and Reviews from the Entertaining forum. Franni started us off with a great recipe of mine that she shared, and even posted a photo of it. So many great recipes were in there, and I never bothered to copy them onto cards or save to my computer, figured they'd always be out there in cyber space. Boy was I wrong!
I tried to go to the old site using a bookmark, and found out it was gone. Now my son is upset with me, he wanted some of the recipes for Halloween treats for his school cooking class that he is leading this quarter. The other one I would appreciate having brought over is the Birthday thread. I spent a lot of time making the master list, and tried to keep it posted every month and toward the top of the thread.
And for those of you having trouble posting, just copy your post and if it doesn't work paste it into your notepad or word program and try at a later time. It took me 3 days of trying to post before it finally went through today.
Here's how to add your photo to your profile (I lifted this from the thread on our former screen names.
How to show picture by your post:
If it was the old site I'd say "Follow this link to 'Welcome to VBB' for helpful info on getting around the boards and how to do your avatar would be there. But since I can't do that here goes... (Feel free to copy and paste this whenever any newbie asks)
How to add photo to my profile: Click on "My VBB" at top right of page. Click on "Account Settings" Click on "Choose" under the avatar photo. Your photo files will open up and you can pick one to use.
You can also write a bio about yourself. I haven't done mine, don't know what I want to say. (Imagine that!)
Another thing that would be nice is the feature that was at the top that let us know who was online while we were. Always nice to greet the newbies while they're here.
