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.

What happened on May 09, 2017, @ 03:01:24 PM was it just a coincidence that that's when the most were online?

Wow, literally 1 year and 1 day from the time this question was last asked.
Guess I should've searched better :)

Is there a mobile web version of the forums?
What is the URL to access it?

Thanks!
Can append ;wap2 to any link.

Seems there are no images though:

That's too bad. Trying to share a link to someone that would be readable on a phone without Tapatalk.

Go to the options, click web view, then copy that URL. It should be a DDF link, instead of a Tapa URL.

That I know how to do.
I was hoping there was a mobile web version of the forums that is good for reading with images etc, so people without Tapatalk can browse without pinching etc.

I wonder if there is a SMF plugin that can do that by now?

There is a mod

Although I have a feeling this won't be compatible with the like posts mod.
