Is there a TTA FAQ?
Several of our recent group of Amazon émigrés are new to this type of forum, and a bit baffled about some of the basic mechanics of posting/finding posts.

Is there a handy-dandy FAQ somewhere, that explains thing like: how to find new posts in a thread; how to post images; links versus attachments; "reply" versus "quick reply"; editing posts; etc., etc. ?

Not the rules -- most of us have found those -- but the mechanics.

I've figured most of this stuff out from experience with other fora, but it would be really handy if there was a basic "how to" thread or document somewhere, for the benefit of the less well-traveled.

Thanks.

Not really, just have to discover most of it.

Anything specific you want to know just ask and then you can pass on the information.

RE: Is there a TTA FAQ?
I don't think such a thing exists...we all sort of learn as we go and lots of people here are willing to help if you have questions.

That would be a good idea to put together though...some of the basics for moving around here.

Think of it as a way of screening out people who don't like to experiment

I'd say we should get Earmuffs to write something but...

But I'm not sure anything good will come of it.

Now that you mention it, where's that history of TTA?

I was thinking that if we wait for muffs to write something up the new people will have everything figured out.

Though I am sure muffs could handle the task and would make it amusing to read.

Well, there sort of is ... it's here :

The section on using code is helpful at times.
