I have spent hours trying to find documentation on how all this stuff works. There essentially is none. It says stuff like: "to change the settings for the calendar go to Calendar>Settings". Trial and error is the only way to figure it out in many cases. Took me about 10 tries to get the member map so it was centered on Colorado instead of Outer Mongolia.


The dudes that write the code for this stuff are geniuses at code writing. Unfortunately code geniuses are usually bad at writing instructions.   :-\

Bob, I for one want extended a huge Thank You for all the work you've put into this for us. I'm sure most of us have no idea! I know I don't. Ever once in a while I think that I should learn how to deal with running a forum... then I come to my senses and realize that if see a person like yourself has difficulty I would have a nightmare!
Your the best Bob!
Thank You!

I believe there are some there. I think if you reply or quote someone, then click preview (just outside the text box, lower right) and it brings up a different window. There are some emojis there, but no thumbs up. Just various faces.  ::) Maybe I wasn't as helpful as I thought I could be. :)

This is all black magic to me.  I'm lucky if I can just turn my equipment on.  But much thanks go out to all that keep these things running and operating.
not all that wander are lost

As a software developer I can attest to that fact, most of us are horrible at writing instructions, or documenting what our code does. Worked with one guy who was particularly bad at it, and still run into some of his code and scratch my head wondering what he was trying to do.
Emojis, use Facebook if you guys want to do that ;)
And yes, thanks for the work Bob.

Thanks Steve!  I write code too and admit I am terrible at documentation. A lot of the time time I have trouble figuring out what I was trying to do!
