    Well yes, so can tresses, apparently, but in my version of firefox, I can't.

    And it'll take more than this to get me to switch to explorer ;-P. (M$ would have to start making a version for mac os for a start... the last explorer version they have for mac is 5, last time I looked, - which has no tabs and is generally hopeless).

    I've always wanted a mac but they're just so bloody expensive.

    I haven't tried to log into both since a month or so ago, I'll have to try later. (I hate Ie, so I guess I'll use Safari if I can;t open both but feel a need to have the archives open)

    Default Help getting re-oriented?

    Hello, I just came back after a few months away (last visit was December 13th 2007) and apparently there was a major crash and loss of data in the interim. Kudos to the folks who got the archives restored!

    That leaves me with some questions (sorry if this isn't the designated thread for this but I am a bit disoriented due to the changes):

    1) Even though they no longer exist on the new forum, will my previous 53 posts count toward the total of 100? I hope so!

    2) Can I get my title of "Long Hair Devotee" restored on the new forum, or do I have to earn it all over again?

    3) Do we now have blogs AND journals, or have the journal threads been replaced with blogs now? It took some doing, but I was finally able to log into the archives forum and find my old journal... and I suppose I could copy and paste the old entries into the new interface to rebuild it here... if that's the best way.

    4) Do blog posts count toward our total post count the way journal posts used to?

    5) Is there still a private journal option (after 100 posts and sufficient time) or is that gone? And if we still have that option, does it work with blogs, or only with a journal thread like we had on the old forum? I really want to have the option of a private journal.

    Thanks for any and all help in getting re-oriented here. I've missed this forum and look forward to participating enthusiastically once again. Off to wash my hair, will check back for replies.

    Yes.

    I don't think we have those titles here anymore. But once you reach 1000 posts you can change your title at will.

    3) Do we now have blogs AND journals, or have the journal threads been replaced with blogs now? It took some doing, but I was finally able to log into the archives forum and find my old journal... and I suppose I could copy and paste the old entries into the new interface to rebuild it here... if that's the best way.
    The blogs replace the old journals. They are a bit different, and may need some getting used to.
    Some of the main differences: you can add tags/labels to your blog entries, you can allow people to leave comments, you can write a blog description, which I think is a really good substitute for the common "intro" many members had in their first journal post.
    I'm sure there's more, but I can't think of anything else right now.

    4) Do blog posts count toward our total post count the way journal posts used to?
    No, they don't. They're separate.

    5) Is there still a private journal option (after 100 posts and sufficient time) or is that gone? And if we still have that option, does it work with blogs, or only with a journal thread like we had on the old forum? I really want to have the option of a private journal.
    You have two options for your blog:
    1) public will allow anyone with 25+ posts to see it, and
    2) friends only will only allow your friends and contacts (I'm sure you'll have a lot of questions about those too , I think there is a thread here somewhere about that, though) to see your blog.
    You cannot, unfortunately, set some entries as public and some as friends only, you have to choose for your whole blog.

    HTH!

    PS: Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. And I hope it was ok to reply in this thread.

    Default Thank you!

    Thank you for the helpful answers!

    I found my blog setup controls and have created a blog with a few categories, etc. It's a nicer option than the old journal thread, overall, especially with the categories feature. Nice enhancement!

    Overall I am impressed with the improvements in the forum. I still haven't looked around the topics much yet, but hope to do that later today.

    I've now restored my profile and everything seems to be up and running again. It's nice to be back!

    Welcome back, Vanille! I'm glad you're enjoying the new blog features. I really love that aspect of the upgrade. One more thing... Could you please translate the Latin in your sig? (You can either put the translation next to the Latin, or make the phrase a hyperlink to a page containing the translation.) Thanks!

    Once you get to 1000 posts and 1 year's membership, you can choose a custom title. Options abound, including Latin. [ETA: Just Isabel, you were super informative. This is the only piece of information missing (the 1 year requirement); everything else was spot on. Thanks!]

    Ah, I must have forgotten it because I already have the time, I just need to get enough posts - I tend to forget things that don't apply to me. Sorry about that.

    I'm glad I could help.
