Correct, the section is blank. Is it related to a low post count?

We do have occasional glitches in the eMail function. Just keep posting, it will all come good when the backroom boys have a chance to work on it.

Jose - a tip for you and all members -

Always click on ANY web hotlink you are posting, and then click on the "URL" button in the posting box, which then means the full link is always shown -

http://stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=80062

If anyone cuts and paste YOUR link anywhere, they get this meaningless, unclickable thing -

Mods:

May I post images using imagevenue.com, like this?

(I find it far more convenient and easy to use than Imgur and it’s a very well known site for message board users, not some fly by night site. But I wanted to check before I post).

Thank you.

I have a question!

I'm not receiving notifications - and I think I saw somewhere that one can receive them. I have only posted on three threads (this is No. 4) and my profile says I am watching them, not that I am subscribed, but when I go to one of those threads my only option is to unsubscribe. I have bookmarked them, so I can go in and check occasionally, but I would like to be notified. So the question is - what should I do?

Hello Vict0riann and welcome to Stampboards. Unfortunately for technical reasons the notifications aren't really working at the moment. Most of the time members don't get any notifications, and occasionally the system sends out dozens of notifications all at once, which is not useful.

I suggest using the "View your posts" link at the top right of the page whenever you check in. This will give you a list of all threads you have posted in, with the most recently updated ones (i.e. ones with new posts) at the top of the list.

No Karen. You are just trying to do too much too soon. Just take your time to learn how things work.
It was a month after I joined before I posted any images. View new posts and view your posts was how I got started.

Hi!
I've recently posted a question in "in NO question is too basic or silly - you ask - we WILL help you with it!" about my stamps, but the reply was about me violating the Forums' rules, sorry, I don't get it. There was no instructions in the invitation email. Can you please help me with it?

Did you actually read the email you received upon having registered in the Forums? ;)

It clearly states that your FIRST post should be in this thread - https://stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=10277&start=24450 - to introduce yourself.

The email further contains all useful tips for youк comfortable and useful conversation in the Forumas - the Forums' rules (https://stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2556),

how to upload images (https://stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=90770), etc.

Private Messages (PM's) have not been enabled on this Board for good and valid reasons. Members can email each other however using board software.

Norm

Hello, can you enlighten me a bit on this "board software"? What do you mean?
There are fellow board members inviting other members to PM them (for buying & selling), yet there is no PM service in here, do you mean I have to check their profiles and find their email address? Seems 99% people do not have contact info in their profile, including those who invite people to PM them ... I am very lost on this PM thing.
Thx

Pathe - can you READ and act on the post immediately above yours please. :roll:

You may not sell or do exchanges until you reach a minimum number of posts.

Your FIRST post was not a wise one. :!: :!:

And when you finally read The Rules, you will realise text speak like THX is not used here. :twisted:
