I was just checking my email and have a notice from paypal sayiny someone in Ca has ordered something from sony for $390 and say if I want to dispute it it sends me to the next page which requests all of my info and recomend I use my bank debit card so they want all of the info on that plus my atm pin # then asks for the last 6 numbers of my ss # which if they know where you are from it is not hard to figure out the first 3 numbers this whole thing sounds fishy to me and I figure that there are people a lot smarter about this stuff on here than me,I have had my paypal account for a few years but yesterday was the first time I used it to buy 2 fantastic vents from the guy who lists lots of fans on ebay our transaction was done over the phone,I checked my bank account the money for the fans was on there but not the 390,is this some type of scam?what do I do about this or who do I contact,I am sure that some of you guys know how this stuff works where I am lost about this stuff please any help thanks Mike

wow

lashing red lights all over the place.............

what a scam.  Hope no one falls for this type of stuff

on the bright side........ I did buy an item using paypal and the shipper didn't sent it and went out of business.
paypal refunded my money in about two weeks after investigating the problem.
always login to the official pay pal site..... do not under any circumstances ans questions in emails.

good luck

Right next to the "home" button is the"help" button. Lots of good general usage information - basically a how to get started, etc.

Hope this helps, Phil


I added that at the top of Posting to the Boards. Thanks

Nick, Phil,

I just noticed a problem with the BBS that though minor, actually affects the long term use of a topic search,

I posted a response to a topic and then later the person who I responded too changed there question.

In other words my response became mute when they rewrote there question. Angry And it sort of made ME look silly..
Anyway to limit changes to 24 hours after posting or less? Huh

What ya think!

I change my messages often...but the thread isn't altered. just trying to fix stupid stuff. To edit is to be. I love the edit feature. May be that a time limit on the edit feature would be in order?
The page shows posts that have been modified, and when they were modified.
Just a few more of these posts and I'll become a "adolescent member"....that would be cool. I'm generally considered a geezer member for everything else. Undecided

When filling out your profile information, if you do NOT want your age showing up in the calendar (due soon), do not fill in the year of your birth.  That way, just your birthday will show on the group's calendar.  If you do NOT want your birthday showing up, then don't fill out your birthdate information in your profile.  But then, how will we know when to send you all the cool bus toys!!

Great idea but frankly speaking... I think it should be mandatory to use a real name in the profile! It would sure eliminate a lot of flaming because then those that DO say things can't just hide behind thier pc if you know what I mean!  Grin

Greetings Ace,

I appreciate the feedback.  And yes, I DO know what you mean.   Smiley

We've tried to keep policies very similar to the old board, even as other changes have been made.   The flaming seems to have dramatically diminished since moving to the old board and requiring registration - even thought as you pointed out, it doesn't have to be a real name, but could also be a "handle", screen name, etc.. 

The moderators have done a real good job of staying on top of the threads and keeping the tone positive, and constructive.  We have had to ban one member, temporarily, for flaming.   There is basically zero tolerance for flaming and personal or bus put-downs.  Constructive criticisms, suggestions, etc., are always welcome and an entirely different matter.   Grin

If you do see a thread where any flaming or putdowns, etc., are occuring, please let a moderator know!  We'll take care of it.  Wink

Thanks for all your contributions to the threads Ace & Susan.  I enjoy reading them.

Best Regards, Phil

So, how does one add an event to the calender if one had an event worth posting? Thanks, Tim.

Hi Tim,

1) Click on the calendar button
2) On the month of the event, click on the numerical date.  This is hyperlinked.
3) Enter a brief description.  This will show up on the date you have clicked.

Hope this helps, Phil

Phil, I click, double click, I'd hit it with a hammer if it would help, but the numbers on the calender of the days of the month do nothing for me. Sad
I get hyperlinks to the events already posted and for the profiles of the dated among us, but the numbers are...just numbers to me.

Any other ideas?
Thanks, tim.

Hi Tim,
Thanks for letting us know about that.  You should be good to go now as far as editing the calendar.   Grin

Hope this helps, Phil

BJ,

No it should happen instantly!

What was your last screen, what did it say?

let me know

Nick-
Nick,
It will only happen quickly if you aren't on dial up.
Dial up for a 50KB upload can take over a minute. Depending on connection and other things interfering, it could take up to a couple of minutes.
