    Were new, can someone give us a basic crash course on coffee room ethics?

    And are we supposed to comment on all the threads? and why are they not instantly updated?

    You don’t have to respond to anything ever.

    They are not instantly updated because every single post has to be approved by a moderator before being shown.

    Please do not feel the need to post on every single thread! If you’re human, you won’t be knowledgable in every single subject that a thread is centered on, so the logical course of action would be to post only if you have something funny, interesting, or enlightening to add.

    Welcome to the cr, btw.

    This is a job for Randomex. He can give a full list of links to helpful threads and stuff.

    Basically, this is a moderated site. You can post on any thread you like. Every post must be approved by the mods. While your post is waiting moderation, only you can see it and it will be yellow. You have a 25 min editing time, click EDIT to edit. Edited approved posts will need to be reapproved.

    Please read the blue [sticky] threads for rules, tips etc.

    Allowed markups:

    Type <em>Your Text Here</em> for Your Text Here

    Type <strong>Your Text Here</strong> for Your Text Here

    Type <blockquote>Your Text Here</blockquote> for

    Your Text Here

    (Mods, is it possible to change the “Allowed markup”s to the above text?)

    Most people don’t know each other. However, some have been here for 2-6 years and they are very” heimesh” here. If you feel left out, don’t! Just interact with others and you’ll make friends pretty quickly!

    Please don’t troll. It’s not funny! And you will be blocked.

    That’s what I have for now…

    By the way, who is the “we”? Is this a multiple-person account?

    Wow Sidi, that was really clear and informative! Too bad you didn’t post that when I joined… 🙂

    I think the whole “we” thing is a gimmick.

    SIDI:

    Looks like it’s actually a job for you (except that you didn’t include linking and escaping).

    wehavegotitallworkedout:

    What he meant by “don’t troll” basically is “be honest.”

    You should be aware that other people might not be.

    To start a new thread, click “ADD NEW” at the top of the thread list. If you can’t find it, click here:

    http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/?new=1

    More information on various subjects:

    http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/just-testing-the-various-allowed-markups

    More techniques:

    You can link to a website by typing in the name, starting with www. Links are generally not allowed – the exceptions are links on the Yeshiva World News or the Coffee Room, and pages on hebrewbooks.org.

    You can also create a link in text that does not match the link,

    like this:

    <a href=http://www.yourwebsitehere.com>your text here</a>

    Note that you must type http://www. before the site’s name if you want to do it like this. The link will not work otherwise.

    “Escaping”:

    If you want to type text like this – "<em>Bob</em>" – without having it turn into “Bob,” etc., you do it like this:

    <code>Your text here</code>

    or just by putting this symbol ” ` ” (it’s above Tab on the left side of the keyboard) on either side of your text.

    (When you write this way, all the letters take up the same amount of space.)

    How are you the ‘know it all’ here, literally? I don’t remember your presence that far back. Do you actually study the CR, posts, characters, (both heroes and villains), names, subtitles…?

    Wow!!

    The truth? Intellect, curiosity, and too much free time.

    Sidi: I need help. Lots of it. In many areas.

    How do I download Yiras Shamaim?

    How do I establish connection to Ruchnuis? How do I disconnect from sillinesseseses?

    How do I update my Torah Rom?

    How does my internal processor communicate with others’ in real life (what’s that)?

    A poster’s profile, which may have some (mis?)information about them, and always has lists of the threads they’ve posted in

    (by chronological order of their last post in each one)

    and the threads they’ve started

    (by chronological order of when anyone last posted in them)

    can be found at

    http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/profile/USERNAMEHERE

    or by clicking on their name next to any of their posts

    (except in certain rare cases*. Also, if their name has a space in it, you’ll need to replace the space [or %20 in some browsers] with a dash: – ).

    Your own name also appears at the top of every page when logged in.

    Carefull!!!

    moderater is bias and will ommit anything that doesn’t match his personal views.

    #1042927

    If that were the.case there would be much fewer threads 🙂

    #Little Froggie, I’m sitting at work now, and while reading your post, I seriously said out loud, “whoa!”
