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.

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • If you yourself have Celiac's disease, you probably shouldn't give gluten-free sandwiches to the homeless, because they're disgusting. Your male neighbor doesn't need tampons. That sort of reasoning should be applied. But you must always remember that the Gospel requires you to treat other people ... View the full article
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
