@justme1955 Hi Susan, welcome to our corner of the planet. TGH is a great site for the social support we can all get a healthy dose of. The links you see at the top of this post will bring out things to show you how to get around and experience all that TGH has to offer. Pop into the chat rooms and say hi. Make a post in the 'Introductions and new members' Forum and tell us about what makes you; you..... https://transgenderheaven.com/community/introductions-and-new-members/. Hugs, Michelle

Thoughts:

  • Make this a Sticky so that it can easily be found again
  • Lock the thread so no additions are made
  • Include this in the sign up process so everyone gets exposed to it

DeeAnn, isn't it a 'sticky'? I selected that option, and now all I see is the 'Unstick' option. And I can go and 'Lock' it once i post this... As for the last bullet, I have no idea how to do that one. Thanks, Michelle

I was expecting the thread to show up in a blue box, but it doesn't. It does have the push pin, but evidently there are different versions of Sticky threads; not sure why that is or what it means.

Yes, we don't have the ability to change what happens during account creation. Someone else will have to do that. I don't know of any other way to insure that every new person sees it at least once. Folks will only remember a portion of what they see, but at least they will have some sense of what information exists and how to find where it is.

Curious. Even though this thread is Locked, I was still able to add this post. Does Ambassador status override that?

Did a little navigating around the site and it turns out that this thread only appears in the Introductions section. The blue outlined Stickies appear at the top of every section. That is the difference, but I can't say I remember how to choose...

DeeAnn, or anyone for that matter, if you know how I can change it so it shows up everywhere, I will certainly change it. Michelle

GOT IT!!!

The line is STICK (To Front),

BUT...

They are separate things. Clicking on STICK is localized to where you happen to be.

Clicking on (To Front) puts it everywhere with a blue background.

If you UNSTICK and do it again, when you click on STICK, only that part lights up and not (To Front)...

@onearmsteve Did you have a question? As a new member, I suggest to you create an introductory post in the Introductions and New Members section.
