Opening a seminar and... How Does All This Work?
« on: March 01, 2017, 12:21:19 PM »
Here we are, once again at the beginning of a new OAC project  ;) So I am trying out the functions of this new site. One thing I am noticing is that there are 16 emoticons but you can't attach a document or create a link to another page. Let us see how things unfold... We need to have both those functions working so that we can host Marcio Goldman's (and other upcoming) papers over the coming months.

I now notice that I can modify messages (indefinitely) in a way that I could not in the past. This looks good in principle (better edited , better thought through replies) . But, what effect will that have on dialogue?

What about putting an image -- is there a way of doing that?

and a reply to see how this works.

I currently have the highest 'karma' on this site (1). What does this mean, I wonder?

I have 'sent' this topic by email to John McCreery -- I am going to see what happens and if he will help troubleshoot these pages.

OK, now you can attach a document, or perhaps I just missed this: --- But there is a problem. All the files I try to post are 'too large' even though they are standard pdfs I use all the time.

I did manage to upload a bus timetable which at less than 100KB seemed to be acceptable, but not much scope there.

Any means to add a link, though? Have I missed something.

This has been rectified now, you can attach a document of up to 25MB

I have removed Karma for now as its just basically people giving each other a plus or minus. It was me that gave you one positive karma

OK. I got myself registered. Started over from zero since I missed or mislaid the activation email. No I will click on a button and follow the rabbit down the rabbit hole.

Yeah, there's still a bunch of features I haven't got around to using yet.
