As I stated in the announcement, I'll do my best to help you all out.
I'll address a few that I've seen as I've meandered through the boards right now.
1.) Replying to messages.
There is a quick reply at the bottom of the thread, however, once you've opened the thread and would like to reply and have a normal reply screen, there is a reply button that appears in the blue header at the top of the first post on each page. You can also quote certain posts by clicking the quote button that appears on the post of the person that you'd like to quote.
2.) How do I post pictures?
I personally prefer using an image host such as Photobucket, you can set up a free account upload your pictures to Photobucket and actually resize the pitures as you upload them by the options on the upload screen, and then post the image tag (which appears as "[ img ]" image url "[ / img ]" minus the quotation marks and spaces) on our forums. Photobucket has options under each uploaded picture with different ways to post them, either with an URL which will just be a link that links back to that picture, or with the img tag it will actually post the picture in the thread. There are also ways to post a lot of photos at once. The plus side of using an image host is that it saves our bandwidth as well...
If y'all have questions, post them in here, and I'll try to answer them all in the evenings.

I have a question. Is there a way I can log in permanently? The function that says you can do that doesn't work. I have to log in every time, and it lasts for six hours or so. Sometimes I miss messages for a couple of days because I just read and didn't log in...

Johno, the 6 hour login appears to be the default setting for this board. When you type in your user name and password, are you clicking on third box that says how long to stay logged in for to override the 6 hours and reset it at Forever?
Thanks all for speaking chinese to me. Kimmie, Alan asked me me in a PM to post some pictures next year, wich I would gladly do, expecting some back from Jonho and his green melons especially, but I am nit very computer savy and what you wrote means nothing to me. Abbreviations are the hell of a mess for a french guy, and so are computers for a guy like me. I am in a childhood computer stage, this thing is culturally very weird to me.
I hate to admit it. But I am doing my best...and Vivianne loves me anyway...and I love her... And my mom loves me too... what were you talking about ...LOL

Yep, the 235 pounds of teenaged flesh knows, and all his suite too. Gosh I feel stupid.... I bought a 500$ digital camera to my wife, I think we have a plan....
But we are soooo ''not camera '' people that I affectionnately often nickname Vivi ''AHFUCK'' like in '' Ah fuck! I forgot to bring the camera''
It even happened this spring when we went to Cancun, she forgot it home. I bought a cheap one there, she forgot to bring it while we were on a tour 70 miles away, I bought another one in Xcaret, and the next day, well equiped with 2, she kept forgeting about it, and we ended up paying my friend for doubles of the pictures he took...

HI! I want to upload an avatar! So, like, I barely know what an avatar is let alone how to upload one! I have a blog, www.trulythankful.typepad.com. On the front page there is a little photo of me with my son and that is what I want to use. How? I really don't want to hassle using photobucket or any other service if at all possible.
Also, on my blog I have photos of my garden in albums. Can I insert those when appropriate?

wilscase: I'm a graduate student at Oregon State and have been working with populations segrgating for different color genes such as the B gene in Cucurbita. I'm curious if anyone has experience with crosses in Cucurbita maxima between grey blue types and orange?

wilscase: I have been backcrossing to the grey parent for 4 generations and have finally selfed the heterozygotes (for the Bmax gene) the populations have segregated for diffuse bicolor (pink/blue, orange green), blue green, blue, green, pink (salmon) and orange
Oct 18, 2022 21:36:29 GMT -5
wilscase: The genes involved are Bmax and bl. I have observed that Bmax is incompletely dominant to wild type (green). I have read that bl is incompletely recessive to Bl(wild type). I'm curious if anyone else has observed the behavior of Bmax in a grey/blue type
Oct 18, 2022 21:38:28 GMT -5
wilscase: It appears that bl and Bmax are interacting to produce different shades of salmon and pink.

wilscase: I'm also interested in any other color genetics, especially the relationships between B and L genes. In the right background these genes can dramatically increase Carotenoids (vitamin A)
