1. What is the difference between a guest and an anonymous user?

A guest is not registered where as an anonymous user is signed in but doesn't want their board name showed.

2. What is the difference between a hot topic and any other type of topic?

Hot topics are topics that get a lot of replies. The more replies one gets the hotter it becomes.

3. What is the difference between an important topic and any other type of topic?

I do not know if I have seen "important" topics specifically labled.

4. What are the blue circles on the left hand side of the listing?

When the circle is dark blue it means there are new posts. When it is light blue there ar eno new posts within that catagory.

I think you are asking about Personal Messages. Your inbox can only hold so many so you may need to delete ones you have sent or ones you get to make room.

2. How can I be sure the system has accepted the amendments to my profile I've been trying to input?

Check to see if the changes were made but you may need to wait 24 hours. Sometimes changes go fast and other times it takes a day.

1. Yea--you're a guest if you haven't yet registered. Guests cannot post or anything--they can just read posts. An anonymous member is the same as any other member--it's just that at log in, the person checked the box that makes them anonymous--in other words, makes it so that others cannot see that they're on.

2. A hot topic is one with more replies than another one. Hot topics are those in orange, regular topics are those in blue. It requires about 9 or 10 posts...maybe a few more in some cases, to make a hot topic.

3. I, also, have never seen an "important topic". What do you mean by that?

4. Yea--a bright blue or orange one signifies new posts--a dull/faded one means that there are no new replies that you haven't read.

-------------------

1. Yea--49% refers to the personal messages you've received. Go to your inbox or sent folder and delete some of the messages to get more space back. You can hold up to 50 messages, so each message amounts to approximately 2%. 49% is not something to worry about...but you may not need some of the messages you have stored or the copies of messages you sent.

2. Click on your user name, Gapspan. You should see the changes in your profile. I have never experienced a situation where it takes awhile to change your profile...

I wonder by "important" topic versus any other type of topic, do you mean why are some pinned and others aren't?

The pinned topics are the ones that the moderators have verified that they are in the correct location. If they are posted in the wrong forum, then the moderators have to move them to the correct forum and "pin" it there. When a member firsts posts a new topic then that topic goes to the last page of that forum, waiting for one of the moderators to come along and pin it, then it will move up to the page that it should be on based on the date and time of the last post in that topic.

I hope this answers your question. It is the only thing I could think of about "important topics"...

God bless,

Mariann

Thank you all. I am more enloghtened now. :D

Re important topics in this part of the forum Technical help, it says Important Topics underneath Topic Title and before the details of the first topic in each page.

Then half way down page 4 it says forum topics and when I go into them I seem to be in "coping with..."

Many thanks again.

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
