How it works
There is the Forum (this - hosted by Nabble.com) and the Mailing-list, two separate things, but they work together.
Forum posts get sent to the Mailing-list, many people only read posts via email.
Mailing-list emails, as well as getting sent to all subscribers, get turned into posts on the Forum.
It is important to understand the link.
When you click 'Post Message' the Forum'sproto-post gets sent to the Mailing-list by Nabble,
Nabble is also subscribed to the Mailing-list, when the proto-post is received back by Nabble, it is then created, ie Posted.
Hence even if you just want to use the Forum, you still must be subscribed to the Mailing-list.
You can turn off your mail delivery if you don't want them, see settings below, but you must remain subscribed.
Once registered & subscribed you can either post on the forum and/or send emails to the mailing list.
Registering & Subscribing
Four steps (step D is important):
To post on the Forum you need to be
A.registered* to the Forum, and you need to be:
B.subscribed to the Mailing-list.
*there may be a pop-up Nabble ad, this is normal, see the footer to disable ads.
After subscribing you need to
C. CLICK THE LINK in the confirmation email (check your spam folder).
Due to an increase in SPAM, you need to be granted Membership before you can Post to the Forum.
IMPORTANT! After Registering & Subscribing* D.clickHERE, to request access, make it clear that you are not a robot, NO generic 'please give me access' etc.
You MUST mention something relevant to this forum,
* Make sure you have subscribed to the Mailing-listbefore requesting access, an Admin may then complete your Membership.
i.e. If the Admins don't see registration & subscription they may assume you are a spammer. The Admin will email you to confirm your membership. Depending on time-zones & sleep-cycles, this should be within ~24 hours, often sooner.
Forum account setting can be changed by clicking on your username in the top right corner.
You can change your Mailing-list settings. You will first need to register. After registering, access your profile.
(you only need to register to the Mailing-list if you want to change default options) If you just like browsing the Forum, you can disable Mailing-list delivery ; another option is a daily(ish) email digest of the days messages, both via your profile.
Note: if you wish to continue on the Forum, do not unsubscribe from the Mailing-list, remember the Mailing-list is how your Forum posts get sent to everyone else to read.
Forum Admin (BTW I didn't design this, I inherited it...)
OpenSCAD Admin - email* me if you need anything, or if I've done something stupid...
* on the Forum, click on my MichaelAtOz label, there is a link to email me.
