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.

    • I am sorry that you are sick!  Ennis has offered some great advice.  With small children, they can be glutening you.  I recall member Jebby getting glutened by her kids.  She worked full time as a neonatologist (premie doctor) and her kids would give her slobbery, adorable kisses, etc.  Jebby had the household go gluten free.  That might be something to consider.  
    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.  
    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
