I just checked the archives and couldn’t find how a thread gets closed or reopened so I’m wondering how that happens?
while were at it how do you bold a word (or letter)
is it all up to the moderators?February 6, 2011 7:12 am at 7:12 am #1089357HummingbirdParticipant
I was wondering the same thing in terms of the bolding words/letters. Also, how do you make the letters in an italicized font like many people here do at times?February 6, 2011 7:14 am at 7:14 am #1089358

(With a name like that, what do you get? :-} )
It goes like this. Type the following:
bold: type the word strong inside < > , write your text, then write /strong, again inside < >
italics: write em inside < >, write your text, then /em inside < >
write blockquote inside < >, write your text, then
/blockquote inside < >.

Let’s say you want to write “Kalamazoo” in italics. You type as follows:
For bold, as follows:
The results should be:

As far as closing threads, from what I’ve seen, the moderator closes it for a variety of reasons. Sometimes the discussion gets nasty, sometimes it goes off topic, sometimes it gets hashkafically questionable, and sometimes it’s redundant with an earlier thread or threads.
Mods, correct me if I’m wrong.February 6, 2011 5:49 pm at 5:49 pm #1089367
oh ok so if i get an answer that i like (like now) i can’t close it myselfFebruary 6, 2011 6:10 pm at 6:10 pm #1089368
mbachur- Don’t think so.February 6, 2011 6:17 pm at 6:17 pm #1089369

I think im on yeshiva world more than them
:p> mbachur <d:February 6, 2011 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #1089370
mbachur- Haha ya I asked that before but the mods don’t seem like they want us to become mods. :,( I wish I could it would fill my time well but I they have your e-mail address so if they for some reason think you’re the guy to be a mod I’m sure they will e-mail you.February 6, 2011 6:28 pm at 6:28 pm #1089371

- I second yossi’s question.
- This is awesome!February 7, 2011 4:25 am at 4:25 am #1089375
Yossi- I got it the blockquote codes are em, strong, ul, ol, and li so when you do the same procedure that was mentioned above with one of these 5 codes it does somthing to your text!
one\__//goalFebruary 7, 2011 4:26 am at 4:26 am #1089376
maybe yossi has a point
blockquote is when you want to block a quote so put it in brackets like em
we know what strong is BOLD
em is italicized
so whats code ul ol and li?February 7, 2011 4:27 am at 4:27 am #1089377
Onegoal: and you said I was watching you. Seems like you’re following me. Lol
One more vote and the question becomes law … Uh wait that doesn’t sound right …

Can anyone tell me how are you able to type in hebrew text in here. I do happen to have hebrew fonts in my computer. But how can I put it into my text if I wanted for example to put something in hebrew in my text in here? Is there a special code or do you need to import (do a copy & paste) it from Davka or the like type of program?February 7, 2011 9:56 am at 9:56 am #1089384hanibParticipant

For Hebrew, you could copy and paste from a word processing program which supports Hebrew, or hold down the Alt and Shift keys together, and then repeat to go back to English.February 7, 2011 5:41 pm at 5:41 pm #1089387
Does this work

Post #205546 is what’s causing the bottom of this page to display strangely.
It is using the
<li>(list item) tag without being preceded by either the
<ol>(ordered list) or
<ul>(unordered list) tags, followed by a closing tag of the same type (
For whatever reason, this throws off the display for the rest of the page – it’s happened before.
Specifically, if you edit that post to remove this line:
<li> hi </li>
…the display should then go back to normal.February 8, 2011 12:42 pm at 12:42 pm #1089395

Mod 80 – I did not open this thread to mock police. I agree with you 100% that we need the police more than ney need us. However I simply opened this thread for the toeles of the rabbim, for what to do in such situations. Maybe tou can delete the not nice comments, and continue it?February 10, 2011 4:43 pm at 4:43 pm #1089402
i didnt see anything wrong with your opening post, you appropriately expressed your frustration with the unfairness and others have also.
but its becoming a police bashing thread.
its enoughFebruary 10, 2011 4:45 pm at 4:45 pm #1089403
mod 80 – Your the boss!February 10, 2011 4:58 pm at 4:58 pm #1089404Ctrl Alt DelParticipant
I wonder if this one will make it through.
No, it wont.February 10, 2011 5:58 pm at 5:58 pm #1089405
I’m just curious, when a thread becomes inappropriate (and I totally agree that we should not be bashing the police), why does the thread close instead of the offending posts being deleted? Does it become too time consuming because too many posts need to be deleted?
