Dear Jerry,
Overall looks ok. Have posted some comments in my "Description" of date for the calendar as I hadn't got to here by then.
What is PGP Key?
Michael.
PS. Help. Where is the Submit/Send button? It came up after I had "previewed" It needs to be made obvious to old buffers like me!

Michael PGP key is some standard for security. I'm trying to work out whether I can delete that field or use it for something else. You can't submit a story unless you preview it first. Jerry

Dear Jerry,
Thank you for the information about the Security element and of course by previewing what you have typed in a slightly different format you are made to read the item once again and can correct any mistakes. Michael.

I think we will all stumble a bit at first. I have started my story on the account information page and hope to make it an ongoing thing as there is so much information to impart. I do hope I have put this on the right page; I am a little dense when it comes to abbreviations.

On personnel details it is best just to put a brief biography and summary of interests. Longer stories are best put on the website using the contribute selection at the top of every page. Don't worrty about all the formatting buttons they don't have to be used.

Dear Barbara,
After returning from a weekend conference at and about the Guild of One Name Studies (we happen to be member number 1696) I was delighted to see that you had found the site and no doubt noted the different addressees on the new application form. I realise that because our Secretary, Prue, probably only received your application on either Friday or Saturday morning she would not have formally advised the Web Master of your Membership yet. So quite rightly, I got a slap on the hand! Prue and Jerry will write to you officially, shortly.
What it means is that you will not yet be able to enter the Member's Room and you will be limited as to what you can write. Strictly speaking your comment should have been published anonomously but Jerry must have been feeling generous. Your e-maill address will not in any case be visible on the site. Well I am told that Heartbeat is just about to begin so cheerio for the moment.
Michael.

I'm mortified! I would like to share any and all of my comments with members of this site. When am I likely to be a real person? I did write about my family but I think I put it in the wrong place. Would you please, in the fullness of time, share this information with other members? It is vital for the follow up stories.
Thank you.
Barbara.

Hello again Webmaster,
I have been feeling my way around the site and, on entering the 'Bunting Queries' I read...
'There are no news stories to display. There may be no news for this topic or your user preferences may be too restrictive for topic Bunting_Queries.'
What does it all mean? Am I to write my queries somewhere else? I await your reply with controlled anticipation.
Barbara.

My goodness I'm still anonymous; I feel like the minor part of Tom and Jerry!

Thank you for helping me with the story. I noticed that I have said Peter was my great grandfather when, in fact, he was my great great grandfather. Is there an edit button? I could amend this comment in the follow up story if there isn't. It would make me about 126 years old.
With gratitude,
Anonymous Barbara

Please forgive my pseudonym; my question is, where would one put general comments about this site? I think I have covered every inch of it now and I love it. I have just had a look at the FFHS - A flight of Yesterdays. Does anyone know if you could get these lectures on CD? It occurred to me that while you are attending one of the lectures you are missing two, for an old sponge like me this is disappointing.

Would it be a huge job to include a heading in the topcs column? It would be great to have a heading covering 'what's new' or 'this weeks news' or 'latest additions.' It's just that I would hate to miss anything.
Thanks,
Barbara.

There is already a "What's New" block on the right hand side of the home page which gives you direct links to any story,event or link that is new.

Over the last 24 hours there has been a problem with comment preview. Hopefully, this has now been fixed.
