Default Is it just me?

Hello, everyone! Now, don't bite my head off...

First, let me say that I just LOVE WI. I really find everything I need to know here.

But, I have to say I'm feeling a little like the Operation October games, etc. seem like they are not very "new" user friendly. Am I alone in this thinking?

And yes, I do have a solution. Maybe someone who really knows thier way around this place can do some defining?

Like, what's a Siggie/Avvie? I am embarrased now thinking how long it took for me to get even that. Or also, where to find the Moderators Profiles and such. Yanno, just a quick newbie reference! Something to help us navigate. I had to quit the Scavanger Hunt because I just couldn't figure out where to go! I know, Boo-hoo. Oh, yes...and the whole PM thing. I didn't know how I even became eligable to PM until a few days after!

But please help us new ones.

Thanks!

Default Re: Is it just me?

Are you wanting some help with what you mentioned?

I can tell you what I know:

Siggie = Signature - usually the end of a person's post, the part that is there no matter the topic or post

Avvie = Avatar - usually the picture underneath someones name and title. Mine should be a nice black lab

PM = Private Message - you can do this after you are promoted to Webkinz from a Lil' Kinz - usually after 10 meaningful posts (not poll responses I believe)

Here's what I do to find a person:
Once I log in, I go to Members List and type in the persons name. Then I click on the name and go to contact info to do a PM.

There may be a quicker way, but that's the way I know to use.

For a list of moderators and staff see the following post:
http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...nd-t18050.html


Hope that helps. I'm relatively new myself. I stumbled across the Monday Avvie today by accident, so I'm learning too.

Good luck and hi from a semi-newbie

Default Re: Is it just me?

First let me say welcome!!!This is an awsome site. I love it.

And as for your questions, there is a full page of abbrivations and what they mean in the forum area...I didn't know what anything meant either. I am still learning too. I just joined this past week. If you have trouble finding it, click on my picture of the tiger and it will lead you to an area where you can ask me any question and I'll do my best to help.
Sincerely, bromsisa

Welcome to WI!

I think your onto something here.There do seem to be a lot of the same questions coming up kind of frequently. There is a guide to abbreviations and there meaning..maybe it needs to be linked in the Operation October thread? Maybe it is already...I can't remember right now.

Anyways,don't feel bad about having to quit the scavenger hunt..I couldn't find them all either and quit also. lol

Default Re: Is it just me?

First let me start off by welcoming you to WI!

The best thing you new members can do is to go and check out the faq's section that is where we direct all new members, it is filled with all the answers to all your questions, it will also help you figure out how to add your "siggy and avatars" it is well worth the few minutes to look it over.

Good luck and if you ever need any help feel free to drop me a line I am more than happy to help you out

Default Re: Is it just me?

Some of the contest might not be the most newbie friendly; however, we made sure there are also plenty of things for even the newest members also. There are creative writing contests, room decoration contests and trick or treat threads on Fridays where all you have to do is post.

Also, reading the FAQ section when you first begin is a great way to answer most of your questions. I'm glad you joined WI and hope you have a nice time.
