        We’re getting a whole new round of first-time posters. Not sure if it’s the newsletter that’s prompting folks to dig in here, or maybe it’s just folks

        Don’t forget to check your spam filter.  My AskWoody emails are sent to my spam.  I’m trying to train my  email server to send them to my in box.

        A warm welcome to all new posters!

        First rule of any forum: read the FAQs. Only thing is, where are they? Not enough forums have a link for them on the front page. It’s all there, but not all in one place. For example, you’ve got the welcome link, and then there are threads like this one.

        My humble suggestion, Woody, is that there be a “FAQs” link on the bar at the top of the page; it could be a depository of all the questions that newbies are likely to ask.

          Good point. That’s what the Welcome tab was supposed to be… but it’s skewed toward Windows Secrets refugees. Times change.

          I’ll take a stab at changing it tomorrow. In the interim, any suggestions most welcome!
