E-mail messages sent from the system to specific users will now include the user’s names in the To: field of the e-mail; Users should note that it is highly advisable to update your profile (see “My account” link in sidebar) since it now allows separate fields for your First Name and Last Name or surname.

Changes to comment system - titles on replies

This article tagged with:

Comments and replies on the web site now have their titles automatically entered as “RE: the title of the preceding comment or the page / story inserted here”. The titles are still fully editable however and users can change the title to whatever they wish.  The "RE" will only be inserted once and in subsquent replies will not be added again.   We encourage you to keep the title relevant to your comment and change it if appropriate.

Use of Smileys

To use the "smileys": 

If you see a plain textbox for your comment (anonymous users not logged in):

  1. click on the triangle to open the "smiley" box and display all the choices
  2. click on the smiley you want to use... it will insert it into the edit box

If you see the fancy edit toolbar above the textbox with icons (available for logged in users):

  1. use the smiley icon on the bar by clicking on it to open a new window with the choices
  2. click on the smiley you want to use and it will insert it into the edit box

Also, for a full list of the smileys, you can get that by clicking on "Composition tips" on the left side menu and scrolling down to the smiley section.  That guide will tell you the "shorthand" code needed to insert a smiley without using either of the above methods.   For example, to get a clown fish symbol you would insert a colon, the word "nemo" and another colon.

Hi all,

To let everyone know... you can do "quoting" when you reply to topics and comments on the forums.  I also fixed a problem that caused "smileys"  not to work.  Thanks to Bob for bringing that to my attention.

Welcome to the new "bulletin board"

This article tagged with:

Welcome to the new BBS.  This section will be for posting of informational notices and policy annoucements and such.

I know many of you want to know if the "old" messages will be moved here and I want to assure you we are working on that.  However, because of the very old data structure of the Footy BBS on the old AFANA site, it is a major and separate effort to get them here but we're going to try.  Stand by for more on this as we progress.
