A direct link to "Forums" on home page. Very much like the "Thank You" button, maybe w/a counter. Not necessary to make a reply when you can just say thanks. love the website!
I have NOT failed, I have only found many many ways that do not work!

I think you need to let people understand what "Ranking and Karma" are actually for. If Ranking is for a level of beekeeper, No-offense but in attending the meetings now for almost 2 years, I have yet to hear anyone catagorically state that they really are anything but an amature.

We will look into it. There is kinda a spell check, if you spell something wrong it will put a red line under the word. A full spell checker would be nice, but I am not sure the logistics of one would be possible.
Thanks.

Mike,

My guess would be your computer is blocking "cookies". I have not seen this problem. I will look into it further for you. I've run this forum on other computers, OS's and browsers and not seen this.

Thanks

Yes you are correct we should state what they are. Ranking is how you rank on the forum. It is based on how many posts and replies you have made and if you are an admin or moderator. The ranking is NO reflection on your skill as a beekeeper.

Karma... Also not based on skill as a beekeeper. Here is the low down and as an FYI we have been thinking about removing this.

The karma system is one of those neat little things that contributes to the community aspect of a website by empowering you to give feedback to those who deserve it. It is a tool you can use to show appreciation or disapproval for anything that another member has done.

Maybe you posted for help on how to do something and got such a swift and helpful response from another member that you want to show appreciation in more than just words. You can applaud them by giving them Karma. Perhaps another member responded to that same post negatively offering no help and unnecessarily making you look foolish when you genuinely needed help. You can smite them by take away Karma. However, should you smite someone, you should follow that up with a message to an admin or moderator and let them know just in case there is a larger issue.

Please use the karma system responsibly. Don't abuse it by artificially inflating someone's karma or waging a personal war against someone by reducing their karma unnecessarily. If abuse is detected the karma system will be shut off as it is not a necessity.

The karma controls are located in the top, right of each post we make in the forum. The '+' sign adds karma and the '-' takes it away. You cannot adjust your own karma.

I hope this helps.

Thanks

Hows 12? I set it for 12. I can change it to almost any number. Let me know your thoughts, or anybody else also is welcome to chime in...

Are you looking for suggestions for the over-all website? If so, you might want to consider putting more info up about the meetings...as in location, speakers, topics, etc. Just an idea.
