Since all of you already know the site so well, I was begging pleading wondering if you would like to help out Smiling

I'm looking for tips on how to use the site. Also considered an FAQ of sorts. Can you help me build it?

Things like "how do I watch a thread", or "did you know that you can watch only the forums you are interested in?"

If you are interested in helping out- post a useful tip for FAQ on how to use the site in this thread.

Hurray! Hurray!

I used a screencast to explain navigation and how to post pics on my orchid cubit. It shows the screen and you can see the cursor moving as you talk. Folks liked it. If I were queen of the universe I would do this for all my instructions. Big Grin

Here's what I did. But it was my first and I should have practiced and tightened it up. http://www.screencast.com/users/damfino11/folders/Jing/media...

Oh wow, Kathy that is awesome. Wow again.

Trish, can we just have a How To Forum with different video clips for each topic?

Wow again. I find that kind of help very useful since I am such a visual learner.

We could absolutely do that...but only if someone else is doing the videos. I just don't think Dave and I could squeeze that in. Sad

OIC, wouldn't that mean the same thing would be done more than once and some things not addressed at all?
