FYI, for all those wanting spell check…I don’t know about you, but my computer when I write a message in the post box, any word that I by mistake misspell gets underlined in red. If you right click on the misspelled word, it will give you choices of the correction. For example: if I by mistake type in “teh” instead of the, the “teh” gets underlined in red, and so I right click on “teh” and it gives me choices like “the” or “tea” or “eh”..etc. So you guys (and gals, whichever you are) can do this with all the words that have a red line underneath and change it to the correct spelling.
However, I think you need to use the Mozilla Firefox browser and not Internet Explore Browser in order to have this feature.January 14, 2009 7:31 pm at 7:31 pm #1224988beaconParticipant
You’re correct Chatty, but Google Chrome has the feature as wellJanuary 14, 2009 7:35 pm at 7:35 pm #1224989

Make it possible to change your password.January 15, 2009 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm #1224994myshadowMember
Is there a way we can choose our own password? I didn’t read through this whole thread so possibly someone already asked, but it’s so annoying everytime I wana log in here I need to go to my email and copy it cuz my password is too long to remember.
Dovid_yehuda, you can do that if you click that you forgot your password, you’ll get a new oneJanuary 16, 2009 12:51 am at 12:51 am #1224995
Dovid Yehuda & myshadow:
Where it says on top: “Welcome, dovid_yehuda! | Log Out”
Click on your screen name (dovid_yehuda)
Then click on Edit. You will there be able to change your password to whatever you like.January 16, 2009 1:41 am at 1:41 am #1224996qwertyuiopMember
dovid_yehuda and myshadow: yes, there is a way to change, when you are logged in, when it says on the top left, “welcome,dovid_yehuda or myshadow” click on your name, you will then see in your profile “edit” when you click edit, you will see a part to change your password.

asdfghjkl: Why do you say that? Is it because I did not say: I know we need a mechitza?January 16, 2009 5:24 pm at 5:24 pm #1225000
nossond: ask Curious to draw a mechitza for the CR, that’ll do the trick (not)January 16, 2009 6:02 pm at 6:02 pm #1225001

btw Joseph, going back a little while, could you repeat in english how to use the search engine to find a specific thread?January 16, 2009 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #1225003
Go to Google. In the search box type:
site:theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom whatever you wanna search
(Replace “whatever you wanna search” with whatever text or keywords you wanna search for.)January 18, 2009 1:06 am at 1:06 am #1225004head in the sandMember

A column after “freshness” titled “views”. It would be interesting to see how many views each topic gets.January 21, 2009 6:28 pm at 6:28 pm #1225007gitty —Member
It would be nice if posts were added more quickly.January 21, 2009 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #1225008
ASDFGHJKL- WHERE ARE YOU TO WELCOME GITTY PROPERLY?

Sounds like gitty is an old timer in the CRJanuary 21, 2009 9:47 pm at 9:47 pm #1225010JayMatt19Participant
is there anyway to access the coffee room from a cellphone?January 21, 2009 10:01 pm at 10:01 pm #1225011
Jay – if the phone can access any site.January 21, 2009 10:02 pm at 10:02 pm #1225012
Jay- ask RoshYeshivaJanuary 21, 2009 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm #1225013JayMatt19Participant
Some sites have mobile site pages.
I can get to theyeshivaworld homepage, and I can even enter the coffee room
When i enter i first need to scroll through all the links on the side of the page, then to the second side, which is the topics. When I finally click on one, it tells me it cannot be loaded (too large).
I was just wondering if there could be a .mobi version or something like thatJanuary 21, 2009 11:28 pm at 11:28 pm #1225014charlie brownMember
yeah, gitty has been here before. On behalf of asdfghjkl, welcome back gitty!!!January 22, 2009 1:16 am at 1:16 am #1225015
areivimzehlazeh: i’m only a nights poster & on weekends!!! thanx!!!
gitty –: on behalf of the coffee room board welcome to the coffee room!!! join the fun!!! i see your not completly brand new!!! head to the new members thread, so the rest of the coffee room board member could give you a proper welcome as well!!!January 22, 2009 1:16 am at 1:16 am #1225016
moish01 said: What’s your pet peeve?
I think my worst one is when a moderator comes on, approves one or two posts and then LEAVES without updating all the threads. I mean, I understand if they’re busy but it’s such a tease!
I agree moish is making a valid point. Clearly the mods can come and go as they please. But I think it would be a very good idea to post comments in the order received — otherwise it becomes very difficult for readers to follow a thread. If an older post is approved after readers already say newer posts on the thread, most people will not realize there are new posts (that are older than some they already read) and miss it — since they recall the last message they read, and don’t look for older messages in the thread – assuming they read all loder messages already.January 22, 2009 4:19 am at 4:19 am #1225017
ATT MODS: i’m just wondering why sometimes- actually most of the time when i post it is posted in the thread but on the CR cover sheet it doesn’t show the time i posted it and my name-
ex: if curious posted 12 min b4 me then it will still say curious… 12 min… :o(
is there a reason? :o(January 22, 2009 4:24 am at 4:24 am #1225018
All better! thanx! :o) :o)January 22, 2009 5:56 am at 5:56 am #1225019YW Moderator-42Moderator
JayMatt, I (and I believe some of the other mods too) sometimes access the site from my cell phone. I do wish that there was a special mobile version as it does get tedious at times.January 22, 2009 5:59 am at 5:59 am #1225020CuriousMember
xerox – they like me better!January 22, 2009 9:28 am at 9:28 am #1225024
curious: it was just an example, don’t go all ‘raisin ur ego’! jk! :o)January 22, 2009 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #1225026squeakParticipant
The name and time stamp show the most recently approved post, not necessarily the last one on the page (which is the most recently written).January 22, 2009 7:21 pm at 7:21 pm #1225027charlie brownMember
on the CR homepage, if you click on the number of hours or minutes in the freshness column, it will take you to the bottom of the page so you see the most recent posts without scrolling all the way down.January 23, 2009 3:27 am at 3:27 am #1225028
ames: yeah charlie’s tip was mentioned long ago in this thread!!! i c your totally addicted now!!!!January 23, 2009 4:36 am at 4:36 am #1225029Itzik_sMember
Not sure if this is a suggestion or a question – are there any clear posting rules on the site? If not can we have some particularly for the joke and convo sections? Thanks and yasher koiach!January 23, 2009 5:25 am at 5:25 am #1225030coke not pepsiMember
ames u make it sound like humans are weird and scary people 🙂January 23, 2009 2:48 pm at 2:48 pm #1225031
I dunno if this already exists, cuz I aint no mod. But I really hope there’s a “recycling bin” for all our deleted posts and that every morning the big YWN boss reviews all the deleted posts so that the mods can actually be rated and have a performance review.
I know of a lot of posts that were deleted and (probably) not a single other mod got to see it and judge if it should have been deleted. It just went whoop- in the trash. and that was that with my poor old postJanuary 25, 2009 7:16 am at 7:16 am #1225032
areivimzehlazeh: maybe they keep all the deleted posts in a file, & when the mods are board they go read them together for kicks!!!!January 25, 2009 6:36 pm at 6:36 pm #1225033
ames: yeah maybe to 2 cr!!! g’luck with tryin to be a mod!!!January 25, 2009 7:37 pm at 7:37 pm #1225034CuriousMember
Hey mods, did you just change the “edit” button function that it’s available longer? I like it!
