We're discussing updating the Stovebolt Forum Users Manual: https://www.stovebolt.com/forum/manual/

We'd like those of you have had occasion to use it to provide us with your input; the good, the bad, and the ugly. That will help us with the redesign. So, if you've ever used the manual, either to help yourself understand something or to help someone else, please post in this thread. What worked? What didn't? What was missing?

Looking forward to input. Especially new folks and any moderators (and people who notice such things) who have some ideas to share.

headscratch

We have several things we've noticed that may go together in the New and Improved Manual. Hopefully, we'll get some input ... just added it to the "forum corner."

Thanks everyone,

Peggy M

The link doesn't work in the middle of the page.

Probably DADS50 knows where it is?
I don't remember seeing it but DADS50 has done some good stuff.

Want to see these instructions in video?

"DADS50" and his wife put together this video to help guide you through posting images as links in the forum

Unfortunately that link is busted

It went away a few years ago when PICASA went under and migrated to google
Most of the links in my early post are busted because of this.

The video is outdated anyway due to the stovebolt software upgrade and now being able to attach a few photos to a post. That wasn't the case back when the video was made.

I believe the video showed examples of PICASA or Photobucket photos being linked ....both outdated


So yeah, to clean up that page that link can be removed

Well, I'll be! This seems to be the nature of things. Nuts.
I notice that doing on to the YouTube site, they want you to "subscribe" ... I wonder if the days of free videos is coming to a close. You'll have to have a pass to get in. It seems that some of the videos we like are shortened, requiring you to get back "in" and sifting thru a pile of ads.
What's it all coming to?
Even our Bolt Bucket (Photobucket) has changed. We deleted all our personal albums. All those pop ups were driving me crazy.

That whole column will end up going with the re-do. It's easy on some pages. I'm not sure why it doesn't work now. I just jump to the top of the page for now.
Sorry for all this stuck-ness! eeeek

I'm new, I would like to see a list of Stovebolt Terms. For instance; hijacking, double posting etc. Everything that I do. With Respect, Doc

Doc, FYI:
Hijacking - Posting in someone else's thread, typically with an unrelated topic.
Double Posting - Posting the same message in multiple places in the forums.

These are considered no-no's throughout Forum communities.

Paul & Peggy, a suggestion of a thing related to Doc's question. On another forum that I moderate, there's a rules sticky at the top of every forum (not that it gets looked at much, judging by how many technical question posts I have to move out of the Welcome forum. ohwell). There's also a sticky post with a list of acronyms, that's helpful for people who aren't familiar with them.

Here's some general "rules" for forum posting. These are not aimed at any specific individual.
1) Stick to the topic at hand. The last thing the OP (Original Poster - the person who started the thread) - needs is people going off on unrelated tangents
2) Some forums are "serious" technical forums. Refrain from posting jokes or unrelated banter in those forums. We have the Greasy Spoon for useless blather about unrelated topics.
3) Remain civil at all times. Some forums allow people to be abusive at times. This is not one of those forums. We ban people who do that.
4) Especially in technical forums, keep your answers laser-focused on the topic.
5) Refrain from the temptation to post just to be posting. If you can't add something useful to the discussion, don't add anything at all.
6) Respect your elders. Every post shows how many times a person has posted. Folks with lots of posts have been here a long time and contributed a great deal. Respect that.
7) Respect the moderators. Everyone on Stovebolt is a volunteer. If you have a beef with the site, if you think something isn't right, if you think we could improve, email me at geek@stovebolt.com.
8) Remember, every member who posts on our forums is giving you their knowledge free of charge. If I charged for my services, this forum wouldn't even exist because the owners couldn't afford it.
9) If you're not an expert on a subject, don't pretend to be. Bad advice is worse than no advice at all.
10) Don't take anything personally. People often get offended on the internet because the nuances of facial expressions and tonal voice qualities are missing. Be the adult in the conversation.

Paul,
Late to the party, somehow I missed this!
As usual, Like everything you do for this site, your list of rules is well done!
Thanks for all you do! “Oh” Miss Peggy also!
