    Re: Father Time and Lord Elgin Differences

    When you open a forum by clicking on its name, you see a New Thread button on the upper left.

    I will move these two posts to Message Board Problems and Comments where it should be posted.

    hi tom,

    tried it again and see nothing. use opera but went to ie and still could not find anything in the upper left that would indicate i could post a new thread. searched for your words carefully and just cannot see anything.

    thanks for your help on this.

    Hi, Tom, welcome to the message board. Seems to me you have started a new thread with your postings on this forum. Do the other forums not show the same as this one when opened?

    hi harold,

    i think tom rearranged my original post so that it ended up where it should be and this thread was started by him and not me. i still cannot see anything that says new thread. your site is very similar to helponthe.net so i am used to seeing things. all i can do is reply to a post; cannot start a new one.

    thanks for your help.

    tom

    Ok, you've found "post reply", so that works for you. After you read my message, click on the main message board, where it says "National Association Of Watch and Clock Collectors Message Board".
    This takes you to the main list of forums. Click on the forum you wish to start a thread in. Then look for "New Thread" button, where you found "post reply" button.

    Is anybody out there? I cannot figure out how to contact anyone. I would like to respond to the gentlemanlooking for finials for the Junghans clock, as I think I have them. I also need info about my junghans regulator. Can anyone help? Damond Dawson 352-350-2185

    Welcome Bob,
    You would need to go to the Clock forums and post as you did here.
    You may not see them unless you go to the opening page of the Message Board.
    Thanks

    Hi Bob, and welcome to the forum,

    If you go to the main Forums page and select the particular forum where you wish to start a thread, (either under Clocks or Clock Repair perhaps), you'll see at top right the 'Post New Thread' button for that forum, and away you go.

    Regards,

    Graham

    For the pictures, press the "FROM PC" link at the bottom of the message box where you type. That will allow you to upload from your computer.
