Newbie Question What Are the Rules on This Forum?

I don't know how else to get this information & sorry if I've did this wrong. Apart from the advice of

Please do this:

Be true and correct to the best of your knowledge and experience

Be in the spirit of the site: to share, inform and support

Please don't do this:

Name and shame identifiable individuals

Be abusive, malicious or deliberately misleading

What are the Rules? Totally confused & scratching my head on what is & is not acceptable (having read the blogs). Using the search function for rules, it came back with "There are no search results matching your criteria".

There are no real rules. Just don't be nasty. As you'll see people post about anything (some agree this should be so, others feel it should be a little more restricted) but posts which are nasty or cruel can be reported.

How this helps

Hiya Judy

Just follow the community rules, be nice to everyone, answer any questions people may have if you are competent to do so and remember that the men are in charge at all times.

Thank you for your advice. Is a difference of opinion allowed Bobby? I march to the tune, the hand that rocks the cradle, rules. Judy

Of course it is Judy. Just raise your hand and say to the nearest man "Permission to speak, sir".

With the advent of the new layout on the site, there may possibly be a new set of guidelines given. :) xx

Thank you for reminding me about the new layout. Maybe the new one won't be as confusing for newcomers. Judy x

And Judy, take no notice of any man who tells you to remember that the men are in charge at all times. ;)

Ha Ha! I think that was said in jest. My response however, was not. Judy x

Hello Bev I am wearing a red, white & blue kaftan. Will this be suitable? & how do you do the yellow smiley faces? Judy x

Reply

Point to the smiley's with your mouse, hover there, and you will see how each is made. :)

Reply

Oh, and be careful not to have a full stop, comma or anything either immediately before or after it. So a smile like this :) would be a colon and a closed bracket sign with a space either side of it.

Thank you, most helpful. Judy x :)

Could today be the day for the new look. Wish everybody good day. I will be going to the market and to the doctor. Routine visit asked by him. Nothing to say at the moment apart from swollen ankles. Weather forecast for today, cloudier and cooler at least in the east.

Reply

Me too with the swollen ankles Annie never had it so bad as now and I am sure it's the excessive heat making it worse

Good luck with the Doctors and hope you get some bargains at the market too.

Glad to hear it is going to be cooler that has cheered me up, as had to spend the last few days in bed. maybe able to get something done today then

Hope your Brian is well Please take care of yourself too

Love Julie
