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.

There’s tapatalk. What’s wrong with the regular site ?

The buttons are all tiny and hard to press, not formatted great for mobile, need to scroll often, overall clunky. Notifications etc

Thanks for the recommendation, I'll check it out

I use(d) to use a hybrid. Site for browsing and Tapatalk for notifications when someone quotes my post.

On my phone if I double tap on the section of the posts it zooms in to that section so it makes it easier to see just the posts section.

I find using the website on mobile phones much better when it comes to longer posts. On Tapatalk you just keep scrolling which becomes annoying.

Newbie here! Question about buying Hilton Free Night Certificates. I see people selling them with their "Diamond Account". How exactly does that work? I assumed the certificate itself would be sold and transferred?
