GENERAL INFO ABOUT OUR MESSAGE BOARDS

11 posts in this topic

Greetings Hitchcock Fans!

 

To those who joined us previously, welcome back! 

 

And to those who are new here, we are very happy you've signed up!

 

I have just a few bits of information I'd like to share with you. 

 

First off, if there is an existing thread on a topic, please post in there, and do not start a new one. If you do, we will merge yours into the already existing one. This helps to keep the boards from getting too cluttered. 

 

A few you have emailed Professor Edwards when you've experienced trouble logging into the Forums. That is great! If he isn't sure what the issue might be, he will reach out to me. If you have any issues, or questions at a later time, please feel free to send me a PM (private message). You can do this by clicking on my profile, then clicking, 'Message this Member'. 

 

Some of you have already noticed that we have a language filter in place. We know that it sometimes stars out words that might seem silly, even we think so at times. However, it's there for a reason, and doesn't generally impede anyone's ability to post their thoughts. These are moderated message boards, and there is always the possibility that one of your posts could be edited and/or removed. We don't have to do that often here, as classic movie fans are the best fans ever! 

 

We do have a Code of Conduct, which you may read here:


 

As I said, any problems, questions, concerns, please feel free to PM, and we will do our very best to help. We want to make your experience here a memorable one!

Can you explain further, please. You've successfully posted here. When you click on 'Preview', you will see a button at the bottom that says, 'Add Reply'. That is what you click when  you are ready to post. 

 

Let us know if you have any more difficulties!

Is there a toggle that would change the order of post display? Currently for me, the most recent post appears on top. If there was only one new post in the thread, at the time of my visit, this would be fine, but when there are multiple posts waiting to be read, they appear in reverse order which is a bit of a nuisance.

Hi Chuck V. 

 

No, I'm sorry, there is no way to toggle the order of posts here. I know it's different from some other message boards, and it does take some getting used to! 

 

Hopefully after you've navigated around a bit, it will become more comfortable for you.

I just had this issue tonight.  It took a half-dozen attempts and about an hour to figure it out:  TCM has several sign-ons.  The first one I Completed said "Profile" -- and I'm sure it takes me to some very wonderful, exotic places on tcm.com ------ but it did NOT get me onto the Bulletin Boards.  That was a separate registration and log in.    Yeah - I don't think it makes much sense,.... but - after a half-dozen attempts to change my Password and/or re-register , then, carefully watching the URL info for the connection I came up with from tcm.com vs the connection from the learn.canvas (Hitchcock50 online course) ... I finally managed to log onto the TCM Bulletin Board and join the discussion about the Hitchcock50 online courses.

 

Yes, very special!

I had a a problem trying to register.  I ended up using a different email address than the one I am registered with on canvas.net.
