Questions about the new forum

Dear @Indreni,

Yes, if there is already a tag with the same theme /subject, this will be the reason the tag was not approved

Tell me, please, in the old forum, we could organize joint purchases of postcards with other postcrossers and created topics for this. Is this possible on this forum?

Maybe it is better you ask that in the Russian Community or open there a Topic by yourself to organize such a joint purchase.

If you would like to do that with other Russian postcrossers the best place is the Russian Community.
And you can organize it there if you would like to do it without an allowance of the admins.
We do that in the German Community too with postcards and stamps.

But of course you can wait of the answers of an admin.

About private messages: at the old forum it was very clear, with an inbox and outbox, very easy to spot the messages. In this one I have everything together, when I’m looking for a message I need to open each one of them and get back and start again, so tiring and confusing! What am I doing wrong? Is it possible to set it up like the old u2u section? (Inbox /outbox/ trash)?

In the Forum User Guide you can read about Private Messages.

Excuse me, would you be so kind to tell, how can I edit the title of my topic I created and a text of the topic? (i want to add a list of participants in a travelling journal to the text of the topic).

@chasingkites - Look for a pencil icon next to the title. If you see it, you can click on it and then edit the title of your thread.


To edit your post, click on the pencil icon on the bottom of the post.

Due to the different trust levels, you might encounter limits regarding editing of your posts/titles. Keep reading and using the forum to gain higher trust levels.

Hi,

and excuse me if this topic was already raised- I just can’t find it…

How can I create a “card description box” like on this picture: Screenshot_20210216_134244_com.ecosia.android|230x500

If I go to my cards, I just get this:
Screenshot_20210216_134729_com.ecosia.android|230x500

Mostly, I’m accessing on my mobile (android).

Thanks for any help!

If you paste a link to the card page in a separate line in your forum post, it will show up with this description box here in the forum.

Will try out soon😉

3 posts were split to a new topic: How to block a user

3 posts were split to a new topic: What is the time last seen?

I can’t seem to find an answer, so decided to post here - if a user removes themselves from a conversation (PM) and I later reply to it, will they still receive my message? Or have I just essentially sent it into space?

You can invite the user back to the conversation.

If you don’t do that you send the message into space.

Of course - I thought I’ve seen something like that before, thank you @Bille!

I just didn’t think to check at the top of the thread and there was no notification that I was basically writing to myself. The setting is a bit counterintuitive, at least to me :thinking: But, I have invited the interested party back into the conversation, hopefully they’ll see my message now :smiley:

Dear all,
I hope someone can help me with this.
I run a RR and in the old forum, I used to keep a copy of the Open groups / Travelling groups on Google Docs. When something needed an update, I would edit the Doc and then copy and paste the whole section to replace the old one on the forum, using the edit function.

If I try to do so on the new forum, all the spaces between groups and members in the same groups are messed up, like I usually post like this:

GROUP 1
1
2
1

GROUP 2
1
2
3

and now it pastes it like this:
GROUP 1

1

2

3

GROUP 2

1

2

3

I know this doesn’t sound important, but graphically the result is very confusing when you have a lot of groups and I can’t spend my days re-formatting the whole thread every time.

Any idea?

Hello & thanks for your help.
Unluckily, none of the solutions in that topic worked for me, but I left a message there too, in case someone else has found another way.
Any other advice will be greatly appreciated, of course!
