    Notice to Newcomers re Trolls - Part 12 24th Apr 12 at 9:59 AM
    Hello and Welcome

    A long time ago Pania wrote the message below to Newcomers or anyone who comes across a troll on the forum


    Over the last few weeks we have had a number of "troll" attacks on the boards.

    What is a Troll?
    A troll is a person that posts deliberately provocative, nasty or hurtful comments on threads. They may be a person with no previous connection to the board or someone that has created a pseudonym to get their point made. If you should get such a comment made on any thread you post, asking for help and advice, please realise this comment is not directed at you personally so please ignore these nasty comments and continue to post here as normal because the majority of us really are a lovely bunch – ooops, modesty!

    What should I do if I get a comment made on my thread?
    Firstly do not respond to the comment as this is invariably what the troll wants. So to get rid of the offending post, at the bottom of the post towards the right hand side you’ll see a red "Warning" triangle within a blue “Report” icon, as shown below:


    Click the icon and then "send" the message which will inform the MSE team of the post, who will then review its content and deal with it as appropriate; sometimes even deleting the troll by making their status PPR’d (Posting Privileges Removed). Remember, this site is an asset to so many people, especially those that feels like their world is falling in around them. There is a wealth of knowledgeable people here all willing to help, whatever you do, do not let the comments of one silly individual deter you from availing yourself of the knowledge base that is on offer here.

    PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE THE FORUM

    It is testament to the work that Martin has done and continues to do that so many people give their time, knowledge and experience freely to others; without judgement, to lift people out of the depths of their debt crisis

    PLEASE DO NOT LET THE ACTIONS OF THE MINORITY RUIN THAT
    A smile enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give

    Hi If, good thanks, hope you are as well.

    No snow here thankfully - otherwise I might need to face up to the impending 'C' word

    Morning all!

    Loving the friday wiggles IF

    No snow here and today is my last day before a whole week of work to do Christmassy things (just don't tell Tixy, ssshh!) Mind you, if the weather turns as cold as they're predicting, it could end up being a duvet week

    Have a good un xx

    You could add a santa hat to your tigger avi the same as If has done.

    Join you for some wiggles later. Nothing wiggles on this rubbish system they have in work. I spent ages wondering what the big blue blob was until I saw it at home and realised it should have had a polar bear in it.
