Hello moderator(s),

Could you tell me what the little symbol is beneath my number of posts? It looks like a tiny clip or stamp.


Also, would it be possible to have some type of a 'new users' thread with information on this site and the forums in particular? I'm sure I'm not the only newbie who would like to read the protocol for adding avatars, making friends, checking favorite posts, etc.  Although I belong to other groups where avators, friends and favorites are utilized, they are not necessarily handled in the same way.

I appreciate your post/thread on the Knitting Daily site's etiquette and rules! Thanks and my compliments to both your site and your knitting community.

Regards,

Monkeysocks

hello there jatica, 

Once you click to "REPLY", you will be in the Compose tab of the post you are responding to.  If you then click on the word "Quote" in the grey box area above the box you are typing in you'll see that brings that poster's comment into your Reply like this.

hope this helps you.

This is a sort of question AND test.  I'm new to the forums and want to use them to join the Sockupied KAL.  I wondered if we had to sign up separately for the forums.  It appears not since I am able to post a comment.  So I assume that just being signed in to my Interweave account gives me forum access.  I also assume then that everything on this site is tied to my main Interweave account.  Thanks ...  Big Smile  Yes

Hi Knitzie, 

Hope you enjoy the kal.  As long as you are "signed in" you can reply to posts or post a new one from yourself.  Also I forgot to say in my last answer that regarding the little clip of boxes below your icon on the left:  If you just put your cursor over it, it will tell you what ranking you have as to the number of posts the member has made.

This is the first time I have ever posted and I have alot to learn.

I do want to say that I really enjoyed Kathleen's article today on En Pointe. I liked having different models and commenting on the size needed and the how-to's to get a great fit. I have not seen her do this before, but I sure hope it will not be the last time that it is done. I am a seasoned knitter of many years, but still learned a wealth of information from the article today.

Will this get to Kathleen? Where is the place to post if it is not? I do not belong to Facebook. I do belong to Ravelry.
