    Hi Bangster 4 points of clarification if you would please; 1. Having become a member now how long till i get that lovely yellow colour (proper spelling lol) denoting such below my avatar? 2. i received an email purporting to be from NAWCC asking members to vote on message board but where exactly? 3. I understood political discussion is not allowed and for very good reason people get upset when challenged, just thought the email received referring to collectivism v individualism is bordering or suggestive of such, not that I in any way mind or disagree just that i thought I would raise it as a point of interest? I love the rules you listed especially be kind and courteous its not always easy but certainly should always be the objective.4. How do you post a diagram direct as opposed to in an attachment?

    Kind Regards
    Chris

    Rule #3 is not true as it is stated. If you read the full rules you will see exceptions and clarifications.

    I feel that the whole selling thing as well as links and discussions needs to be reviewed.

    I have moved these posts from the MB Rules sticky, which should remain as a stand-alone informational thread only and not evolve into a discussion thread.

    1. When did you become a member of the NAWCC? There is always a lag between joining the organization and updating message board records.

    2-3. Are you sure the e-mail you received was not concerning BOD elections and elections for the Nominating and Elections Committee? I received that e-mail in early January. It had nothing to do with the message board or political discussions.

    Hi Chris,

    I'll leave Steven to handle your other points, but on this one there isn't a way as far as I'm aware to post anything other than text in a 'direct' way as you put it. The vast majority of images you'll see posted in threads will be in one or other of the standard graphics formats including jpegs or pngs, which are most easily attached and added from your own computer by the 'From PC' button at the bottom of the reply panel. However, many other formats are supported, including pdfs, MS Office objects, etc, but not videos as yet.

    Regards,

    Graham

    Thanks Graham, I've twigged my problem in that I posted a diagram within a word doc, this meant it could not be directly opened so next time the remedy is to save it as a jpeg or other image format compatible with the forum.

    Thanks Steven, Yes I think the email was indeed about the election of directors (still cannot find where this is on forum though). I suspect my membership is still being processed as I joined Friday and as I live the UK there will be inevitable lags. Just a bit conscious of not been seen as a taker and asking lot's of questions without reciprocation to the forum by way of joining and thereby contributing, thanks anyway.

    Hi Chris,

    It isn't on the message board, it's on the main site in the top banner.

    Regards,

    Graham

    Updating banners is a semi manual process that I hope to get automated when we upgrade the main site and move to the next version of XenForo later this year. Whenever anyone inquires, I can check their status on the membership system and edit their information here out of cycle.
