Huh?

Might help if you had appended your remarks to the thread where "patrick the Europe maven" made his comment instead of starting a new thread.

LOL. This is in reply to a thread where I explained to richardor how he could find his messages as he kept reposting the same one over and over unable to find them. I did it politely, but someone thought it appropriate to slam me for being the "self-appointed" patrol, and suggested that my advice be ignored. Can you imagine someone resenting another poster giving helpful information?

Patrick, I'd believe almost anything on here...

I got slammed repeatedly for sincere advice I'd offered on a thread last week. I didn't even know the poster who was slamming me and the slam made no sense.

I've never seen you give bad or insincere advice yet!

Still interested in your advice about London, Patrick. I did answer your question about timing, without getting too specific. You can accept what I posted as being truthful, so perhaps you'd now offer some thoughts on restaurants, etc. Thanks.

Perhaps Fodors could use a larger typeface so HELP and RULES would be easier to find. They are near the top on the left hand side.

Am I being too obvious?

And "clicking on one's one name" is not IN the "HELP".

It should be one of the things that is pointed out in the very first e-mail sent to a new registrant - - and/or repeated when a new registrant makes his/her first post on a forum (I wonder what percentage of people registed and do NOT make a post their first day).

Best wishes,

Rex

Well, Rex, what happened when you e-mailed the "editors" and suggested this improvement?

"would love any additional advise how use the website."

richardor:

Are you able to use the "search" box for more helpful information? Are you able to "save" information in a Word Text? Are you able to "store" a favored thread?

Please go ahead and ask...
