I don't understand this whole voting thing. Do you start out with a one and if you get negative votes start declining? Or do you start out with a neutral zero? I just made a really innocuous response to a fairly innocuous question on a somewhat unpopular thread (I assume - it had a negative 4) and my post came up with a one with no response.
I know I could study this and figure it all out - but I'm not able to access the internet or even a computer on a regular basis - so I feel all at sea here.
Also - I had a private message that I didn't have the opportunity to answer - is that option gone forever? And is there anywhere that all of these questions answered in one thread at one spot?
I do miss seeing everything that is available in one easy spot - I really liked the at a glance feature...not to complain, but can someone explain what the positive new features are that I may just be missing because I'm too technologically impaired to figure them out?
And to get on acronyms - do I always need to log in and go to my last acronym posted or is there some other way to find the acronym thread and the last post quickly?
I'd appreciate any help. I'm really not a lazy person - it just takes me a while to figure technological stuff out, and I can feel that I'm doing everything the long way, and probably will be for quite a while.
