Help, I've just registered, but can't post.......the answer

Recommended Posts

Not easy for new user.. Reply to this post? Spent time trying to figure out how to add a post..Must improving here.Regi

Agreed - I'm trying to post in the classified forum. All I seem to be able to do is reply to someone else's classified (not sure I should be hijacking another classified ad with my gear) and I have a 'you cannot start a new topic' notice towards top right corner.

 

I've searched every string I can think of with no joy. Unable to find the contact wetpixel form referenced somewhere, and cant seem to find a newbie forum help type thread where I can ask a question.

 

Any help out there? Cheers, jonb

I am also a new user. I find the specific workings of the website are hard to figure out. For example, I posted a brief question concerning which wetsuit to use in the Galapagos. Once I'm satisfied with the responces, how do I terminate the post. Surely you don't want that post to stay there forever.

Hi folks,

For those who have just joined Wetpixel:

Firstly, welcome and we hope that you will become an active community member and find the amazing resources that are available here both interesting and useful.

Hi I'd like to post in the intro thread but scrolling through pages from 2011 was pretty labor intensive. Obviously I am doing this wrong? Anyway hello. I love wet pixel FB page and look at it almost every day and post on it frequently as well.

Hi gass Productions

 

The fact you have posted this shows that you are able to make a post.

 

If you go to the main Forum page, select the section that you think relevant to what you want to post. When that loads click on the box which says Start New Topic - black box, right hand side about and 1" down from the top.

 

If you can see that, you're off and running. If that box doesn't show, let us know.....

 

Welcome aboard!

HELP ME POST :unsure:

 

I have already introduced myself, but still finding it hard to create a post for the item I have for sale. Seems like I can reply back to other forums but I would like to create my own post. I am sure this is just bc I am new and just need a little guidance on my first post.... HELP

All you need to do is click the link that says "Start new Topic"....

 

I'm not sure what the problem may be?

 

All the best

So obviously it appears I can post :D I just registered via my Twitter account. I did not receive an email to verify but I'm guessing having a Twitter account takes care of that.

 

I want to edit my profile, but it doesn't allow me to. When I go to my profile and click on "Edit my Profile" it takes me to "My Settings" which has nothing that allows me to edit the information on my profile. Just "Email & Password", "Ignore Preferences", etc... I attempted to contact the site via the online form and received an email stating my "message could not be delivered"

 

I'm wide open to ideas :)

Hi Bill

 

Welcome to Wetpixel! (Welcome to retirement too :dancing:) You seem to be finding it useful already - excellent! Happy reading.

 

Sorry you have had a bit of a problem with the Profile.

 

Just let me run though the system for you - just in case: click on your name (it should say ScubaBill22) in the top right hand corner on the black ribbon border of the Wetpixel screen. This should produce a dropdown box with the first option being My Profile. Click on that. This will produce an overview of your current profile. In the top right hand side there is a black click box, Edit My Profile. Click that and it'll give you (on the left hand side) a number of options of things you can tinker with - including My Settings. Using the combination of those options you can/should be able to produce pretty much anything you want in terms of explaining who you are, the gear you own etc.

 

Hope that helps!

Nevermind - I figured it out. If I reply to the post using the box at the top, attachments can be added. If replying using the box at the bottom of the post, no attachments can be added.

TEST - How do I post new topic? Is there a "How To" page? I would like to have some assistance in identifying a critter.

Yes we do, so people in the future know what wetsuit to wear in the Galapagos.

 

You need a 7 mm in the cold water and a 5 mm at wolf and Darwin

For a new post, just select the forum you want to post in (eg Critter identification) and click Start New Topic. And away you go.....

Like many, I am not able to start my own topic. I have completed my first post to introduce myself, but I still am only able to reply (not create a net new topic).

 

Any suggestions?

I am looking to post in Classifieds as I am interested in purchasing a used 5dm3 with nauticam housing.

 

Thanks!
