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.

Thanks! Found something, passed it on to them. I'll leave it up to them if they want to trust their Chol Hamoed to Frontier Airlines...

You need some posts (IDK how many) to expand your in box beyond 1.  So delete each message after you read it.  (You may want to save the sender's name.)

If I mistakenly ignored a thread is there a way to reinstate it?

I am locked out of my old account.
I did a "forgot password" but it doesnt send a recovery email to any of my email addresses. I checked spam, no luck.
I've made a few purchases on the forum and would like my "street cred" and "recommended buyer/seller" to be accessible.
Any ideas?

Is there an issue if I transfer a MR-AC with a different name?(t
The AC account was used several times for booking, should I be afraid to transfer from MR?
(This is a large account I don’t want issues)

Thank you
I think you need to increase your post count. PMs are always limited for new members. I don't know the exact criteria, but maybe someone else can weigh in.
New members can't receive more than one new message at a time. You need to erase your old messages to make room for the new ones, until you post a bit more and have a bigger inbox.
