AVSIG III questions
      #445509 - 12/04/17 05:22 PM

I've logged on to AVSIG III and I've watched the tutorial, several times.
Now I have some questions, I guess exposing my ignorance about modern
computers and how to use them.

1) How do I see only (but all) stuff posted since I last logged on?

2) I see eleven Forum titles on the Home page. What if I want to make a new
post that doesn't fit any of those subjects, like I would have in the old
Hangar Flying section?

3) I clicked on "Drones". How do I post a new message there?

4) On the Home page I see "Mark Channels Read". What is a "channel"? If I
click on that, what does it do?

I'm not sure as there's a function for that, but the threads are color-coded to indicate which ones have new content. There's a little double-down arrow that notes new stuff. Click on that and you're taken to the first new message in that thread.

You can't post at the top-level. Can't do it in SIG II either. You have to go into one of them, like Hanger Flying and click the "+ New Topic" button.

There should be a button near the top left that says "+ New Topic".

Ward: A list of messages posted since your last login appears to the right of the forum list. Posting new topics doesn't differ much from this software, so don't be afraid to click around and experiment. So far no one has broken anything over there, so I dare you to try :). You were initially browsing as a pending user, but now that you have the full posting permission set you'll see the posting buttons, etc.

Mike -- It's a heavy lift for those folks who were TapUBB exclusively, and never got used to the current UBB web interface. It's even a challenge for those who have used the UBB interface....

Itís time to start working out, then :).

Everyone should feel free to click around and try things. You canít drop 300 pounds on yourself. I donít even think you can get a hernia. The only lurking danger is getting run over by those bipedal horses.

Seriously, Iíll clean up any messes. Iíve already cleaned up a *bunch* of my own.

AVSIG III questions [Re: Mike Overly]
      #445555 - 12/05/17 05:33 PM

Mike, as Scott pointed out, for 25 years (even today) I've just
double-clicked on the AVSIG logo on my desk top, then pressed "n" (for new)
and in a few moments I see the new posts since my last visit. I just press
the space bar to go from one to the next. That's both straightforward and
simple. And that is usually all I want to do with AVSIG.

>> A list of messages posted since your last logon appears to the right of
the forum list. <<

On my screen, to the right of the forum list I see "Jump To--" and a list of
the forums. If you mean to the right, within the forum list, I see the name
of the last (?) poster, which may have been long before my last visit. I
don't see a list of unread posts, that I'm seeking.

Q: What is a "channel"? If I click on "Mark Channels Read", what happens?

Ward: When there are new messages since your last visit, you will see them to the right per this screen:



... If there are no new messages since that time it is normal to see the "jump to" section at the top, as you are seeing.

And "channels" on the new forum are the same things we have always called "sections" -- Hangar Flying is a channel, People/Places is a channel, etc. I did break the Aircraft section (channel) into sub sections this time around, since I think it presents that area better.

"Mark Channels Read" only tells the forum to quit giving you color icon notification of messages that it thinks you haven't read yet. It won't make any messages disappear from your view or in any way affect navigation.

I did see that Mooney is gone as a section in the new sig.

Booo!

And several mouse clicks later ...

Now you can go whip up some message traffic there :).

I like the "new since last visit" feature.
