I believe when you scroll down it makes it smaller. When you scroll up, it enlarges the text.December 15, 2008 2:43 pm at 2:43 pm #1224927noitallmrParticipant

“I was just thinking, even if they can’t actually go through each post and really comment to the guy why it was deleted, perhaps just an automated message being sent to the poster when his comment’s been deleted/edited. Because it’s quite possible that the person keeps reposting because they’re not sure whether it was deleted or just didn’t make it in.”
GREAT point!!!!!!!!!December 16, 2008 2:57 am at 2:57 am #1224931
how abt send us some type of message on top of the page like where it says our username, that our posts have been approved & was posted?????????!!!!!!!!
mods you guys thinkin abt any of these ideas????December 16, 2008 3:58 am at 3:58 am #1224932mw13Participant
For Firefox users:
F11: Full Screen
F5: Reload page
And the grand finale, possibly the most useful keyboard shortcuts for us YWN posters:
F3: Search the entire web page for any text (name of poster, keyword, etc.) The only problem with this is that it will only find the first time this text is used.December 16, 2008 4:54 am at 4:54 am #1224933dont have internetMember

they should open a YW store and people can buy all sorts of YW stuff.
everyone can dress their kids in matching YW jerseys with your favorite moderator’s number.December 17, 2008 12:53 am at 12:53 am #1224935brooklyn19Participant
that’s like telling a kid he could be whatever kind of fan he wants and taking him to a yankee store! if all the mods are one, then the numbers mean nothing, right?December 17, 2008 1:27 am at 1:27 am #1224936chaimssParticipant
xerox- Thanks 🙂December 17, 2008 4:04 am at 4:04 am #1224937AnonymousInactive
generally speaking, if you do not see your post in a reasonable time, it most likely was deleted. reposting without self editing will not get the post approved.
regarding editing: some edits are identified in the body of the post whereas others are done without bold text. This is up to 1) the descretion of the individual moderators, 2) the nature of what needs to be edited, 3) the volume of current posts and 4) the volume of posts in backlog.December 17, 2008 3:47 pm at 3:47 pm #1224938noitallmrParticipant
Like the full screen tip in firefox please post all tips and tricks in the new thread for this:January 6, 2009 4:33 am at 4:33 am #1224939

get more mods to cover the times the other mods are gone.January 11, 2009 4:25 am at 4:25 am #1224942anonymisssParticipant
nossond- This is for you. Is there any way that we can edit our posts? Please? I hate typos! It makes me crazy when I read my own posts and they have mistakes.January 11, 2009 5:52 am at 5:52 am #1224944nossondMember
Thank you anon. I also hate my typos and other mistakes. Its great to be able to edit your own posts as I have done on other forums.January 11, 2009 6:40 am at 6:40 am #1224946qawsMember
I agree with the previous poster who said that they should sell yw caps, t-shirts etc. That would be so cool!January 11, 2009 8:59 am at 8:59 am #1224947kapustaParticipant
how about a CR search to look for a specific thread or user (find all posts from that user)?January 11, 2009 2:35 pm at 2:35 pm #1224948
kapusta – I believe the CR software supports search function that needs to be enabled.
nossond – there is an edit option if your post was posted and you caught the error within one minute of posting time. The setting used to be set longer than 1 min. but was for some reason reduced.January 11, 2009 4:00 pm at 4:00 pm #1224949jphoneMember
Sports thread.January 11, 2009 4:03 pm at 4:03 pm #1224950moish01Member
yeah make a sports thread!January 11, 2009 5:38 pm at 5:38 pm #1224951I can only tryMember
I’m guessing that we’re not allowed to edit our own posts because that would provide a way for a sneaky individual to bypass the moderation process.
I’ll further guess that a one-minute window is the minimum interval for self-editing that the site software allows – otherwise it makes no sense (to me) for such a short interval to exist.
(nossond- btw – your divrei Torah are excellent).January 11, 2009 5:58 pm at 5:58 pm #1224952
icot – all your points about the edit option are correct. indeed when the CR was brand new I believe it allowed it for 60 min., the default, but was reduced to the minumum 1 min. since new edits post unmoderated.January 11, 2009 6:19 pm at 6:19 pm #1224954I can only tryMember
Thank you for the info/confirmation – those were guesses on my part.
Re: the IP info we were discussing on the other thread: agreed, most of the revealed info is useless for those playing detective. For those living in cities with a relatively small frum population (i.e. Phoenix, Dublin, Denver, Jo’berg etc.) the location can be much more revealing. Also, a particular IP can and has revealed multiple IDs using the same access point. (For the truly paranoid, a “war-driver” can pick up an unprotected WAP and get your IP from that as well. This is not a realistic concern.)January 11, 2009 7:40 pm at 7:40 pm #1224955
That could be true in theory, but remember even that info is only available to a site admin, not a regular reader. (The IP to city translation is not always accurate.) And its also easy for a user to hide behind an anonymous proxy that will mask even that much.January 11, 2009 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm #1224956
how many of you by mistake click on ride sharing instead of the coffee room on the home page??? i sometimes do & hate it!!! maybe to not have all those stuff so close to one another on the left side of the home page????January 12, 2009 12:09 am at 12:09 am #1224957anonymisssParticipant
I did that once or twice, yeah, it’s annoying.January 12, 2009 12:09 am at 12:09 am #1224958
i have done once or twice, it’s so annoying when i wanna check the updates and i have to wait the extra minute. lolJanuary 12, 2009 1:02 am at 1:02 am #1224959chaimssParticipant
Maybe the CR should be given its own subdomain name, i.e. cr.theyeshivaworld.com or theyeshivaworld.com/crJanuary 12, 2009 1:29 am at 1:29 am #1224960January 12, 2009 1:30 am at 1:30 am #1224961
joseph: do you read the homepage ever, or do you just go straight to the CR.January 12, 2009 1:37 am at 1:37 am #1224962
qwerty, if you asked that question you are obviously new here 🙂
I have made many comments on the main YW site over the past 2 1/2 years.January 12, 2009 2:16 am at 2:16 am #1224963
joseph: 1)i am only 2-3 weeks old 2)i have also commented on the main site 3)i was justnasking foor a joke because you were showing chaimss how to get to the CR straight.January 12, 2009 1:04 pm at 1:04 pm #1224964nossondMember
I can: Thanks for the compliment.
About edits: YWN can moderate (approve) the edit posts just like the other ones.January 12, 2009 5:48 pm at 5:48 pm #1224965AnonymousInactive
i think that when you click a thread it should take you to the latest postJanuary 13, 2009 1:13 am at 1:13 am #1224966
Blah, click the time (hours or minutes) under “Freshness” for any thread, and it will do just what you asked for!January 13, 2009 3:05 am at 3:05 am #1224967squeakParticipant
Can you allow signatures on the CR posts?
A signature is a line of text (set in your profile) that is automatically appended to the end of each post.January 13, 2009 3:48 am at 3:48 am #1224968
squeak: i agree we should be able to have one instead of typing one everytime we post.January 13, 2009 6:19 am at 6:19 am #1224969
squeak: great suggestion there!!!January 13, 2009 6:25 am at 6:25 am #1224970
I think we should be able to click on a specific post “reply” that way we automatically know to whom each post was directedJanuary 13, 2009 6:45 am at 6:45 am #1224971xeroxMember
talking about signatures at the end of each post reminds me-
