A Few Questions...

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

This is a wonderful and very friendly place to learn more about Celiac and hear others' experiences!

A few technical questions:

1. What does "set status" mean?, as in "has not set status"?

2. What does PIP mean?

3. Is Javascripting necessary to see everything and make everything work on the site? Or just Cookies?

4. Is there a way to enable Messaging between Members, and if so, how and where is it done?

Thanks for your help with any or all of these issues!

1. Your status is something you set in your profile. It is just a comment, and had no effect on your participation.

2. I don't know what PIP means. Where did you see this term?

3. You need to enable cookies in order to be able to log in. As far as I am aware, this board does not use Java scripts (I do have them enabled for other reasons).

4. Hmmmm. By default, the messenger should be enabled for established members like you. I tried to send you one and could not, so maybe you have blocked the function. Go to your settings, and make sure that "Disable my personal messenger" (under your time zone) is *NOT* checked.

Once it is enabled, you can send a message several ways.

If you are reading a post, there should be a button under the member's name or avatar that looks like an envelope. If you click that, a message window will open.

You can view a member's profile by clicking on their name anywhere it appears, or on their avatar. Among the options there is sending a message.

You can reach a specific moderator by clicking on "The Moderating Team" on the home page. At the right-hand side of the line with our name there is a button to send a message.

Aha! Now I see an envelope under your name! Thanks, Peter, for all your help. (The messaging had been disabled, but is now enabled.)

As for "PIP," I've seen it under some members' names in bold face. Once I saw it under my log-in name and another time I saw it under somebody's name as PIPPIPPIPPIP!? Have no idea what it means... Been scratching my head (not from DH), trying to figure out the meaning: PRETTY IMPORTANT POST? PARTICULARLY IMPETUOUS POSTER? etc. LOL! (Hopefully, it doesn't mean "PATHETICALLY IGNORANT PERSON"! Hah--Just kidding.)

Your browser is not displaying the rank images underneath the poster's "avatar", which are a series of little black dots or pips. You are seeing the alternative text, "Pip". This probably means your browser cannot display .png format.

What browser are you using? A browser old enough to not display .png format is likely to have some fairly serious security issues.

HI Skylark,

Thanks for the PIP tip! Must have had "images" turned off that day, because the little "pips" are quite visible now. Sometimes I turn off "images" in order to load things faster on various sites; probably forgot to turn them back on for this site. And yes, the .png-format images are showing up just fine. Thanks again.
