Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are willing to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

I'm confused.
Is this DDF box run in HTML format/partial HTML- how do I format my reply's - do I use HTML or do I not....
No it's called BBCode. What did you want to format?

Hi, I am a new member and I am looking to buy a Marriott free night certificate. After going through the topic wiki of the Marriott Certs Sale thread, I still have some questions in mind.

1. What does the sale process look like? Do I just need to tell the seller the date, hotel name I would like to book and then pay the money?
2. I think the reservation will be still under the buyer’s account. What if the buyer cancel the booking before I check in?

The questions I asked may sound cheap, hope you don’t mind. Any answer is appreciated!

I bought something on newegg via PayPal on my freedom flex MC. Is it normal that the charge fell off after pending even though it's already in transit and arriving tomorrow?

Either you have obscenely cheap tuition or I feel really bad for that poor secretary. The DDF version of paying in pennies.

Is there a way to change how many posts I get per page?

Edit: I should've looked around a little more before asking. The "Modify Profile" button is on your Profile.

I have a question regarding uber eats cs. Im having a lot of trouble dealing with them.
I was looking around trying to find where to post it but the only thing i found was a thread from a very long time ago in general discussion.

Can someone please tell me where this question belongs
