How do I edit my message?
If you didn't log in before posting your message, you cannot edit any messages. By logging in before posting, you'll be able to edit the message later. You can edit by selecting the [EDIT] menu option at the bottom of your message.
How do I remove my message?
Only the board administrator can remove messages. It is suggested you preview your message before posting and try editing the message first. If your message still needs to be removed, please send a note to the administrator.
How do I send the poster e-mail if I don't know her address?
At the base of every message is a menu bar of links. One of these is [SEND EMAIL]. If the poster specified a valid email address when they posted their message, you only have to click on the link to send them email. There will be cases where a poster forgets or makes a typo in their email address. In these cases, please respond to the individual's message in the forum.

To modify your account, you must be logged into the board. Once logged in, select [USER] Profile (located next to the login link) under the forums menu. To change your email address, select Modify your account information and press Submit. Change your address and press Submit once again.
How do I know if somebody has responded to my message?
When you post your message, select "Check if you want to receive email when a new message is posted to this thread?" to receive email anytime anybody responds to your message in the forum. (It is suggested not to check that on other people's feedback pages since those pages do not become old and end). Another way is simply visiting the forum and looking :-)
Where did my message go? It was there last week!
Due to space limitations and the dated content of most messages, messages may disappear after a week or two. Newer messages are always displayed first in the forum. As messages grow older, they'll slowly move down the page and onto the second page of the forum.

You can select which page you want to view by selecting the numbers at the top of the forums. Usually, you will be viewing page 1. Selecting 2 will take you to page 2. When messages grow so old, they are automatically deleted and lost forever.

Why aren't there any new messages today?
There will only be new messages when you, the reader, takes the time to post! The forums are what you make them!
