    Oh boy you got me. I just know it exists but am not sure exactly why or what its function is. I’m sure a more experienced member can explain it.

    My page reloads constantly. So I can’t stay logged in. It logs me out every time. I usually give up and stay logged out. It’s doing it every few min today. I’m on a phone. Going to post before it reloads and I lose it Again.

    Hi- I got permission from Tricia to take ownership of the FAQ draft so I'm working on it now and will include an explanation of warning points, timeouts, and thread-specific bans.

    Guys I am going to close this thread if the posts don't get back to FAQ recommendations. This is not a thread for discussion of technical issues.

    Thanks

    That’s great news, Whiskers! Where will this info be posted? The thread on the subject of warning points, timeouts, etc in the parking lot is a bit hidden to be helpful. Just for the record, I did not start that thread and relegate it to the parking lot, even though my name is on it. My hope has always been that this info will be easily accessible to everyone. Thanks for working to make that possible. :)

    Hi Lilibet, I plan to post the FAQ in the Welcome to Websleuths forum and make it a "sticky" so it will always be at the top of the list.
    Thanks

    Are conversations explained anywhere? if someone leaves a conv., can they somehow return? The name stays showing as a participant, but cannot re-enter?

    Is there a way to turn off notifications for alerts on conversations? I turned off every alert there is and still it is blowing up my email.

    Who can repair a broken quote? On the MH370 new thread 26 I have been quoted (that’s great) but it’s broken and doesn’t read well. TIA

    Mods can repair them. Just report the posts and explain what’s needed. Hope this helps.

    Nope, not currently, but there is a whole section on the FAQs I'm drafting. Shouldn't be too much longer and I will link it here :)
