Instructables

New members: help is at hand.

You may feel puzzled or confused by aspects of the site - things that others seem to know, but you think are so simple you are embarrassed to ask about them.

There is a group of members who have volunteered to help where they can.

The members of the Volunteers group, are all happy to help - just send us a PM, and we'll do what we can, or pass you on to somebody who can do more.

(Needless to say, if you want to be identifiable as somebody willing to help, then join the group.)

prepare for the onslaught !
I occasionally get the odd question (not that the questions are odd, but only that they are infrequent) in my inbox and I thoroughly enjoy answering any questions I can answer.
BUT, more often then not, the "question" is attached to a spam link....*sigh*....I feel like a spam magnet LOL

My thinking was that people who need help don't know or find this (point proven it seems), those who do already know what they're doing. Perhaps someone should suggest a "help" link on the site that points to FAQ and this group?

micro dots .

Huh? Microdots?
lemonie Kiteman4 years ago
Not that important really, I probably shouldn't have mentioned it.

I've been dropping a few "microdots" around the site in case anyone might find them (I'll carry on for a while)

oh a ~~Jack~~ ghost in a box :-)
No, just a Jack-in-a-box. I should go pro soon. Which one do you recommend?

Unrelated to reading this post, I just clicked on a number of member profiles in the "Pro" box on the home page, and noticed several had registered and gone pro in the last couple of days, but at least three of the ones I clicked had no welcome message from Robot. I wrote my own with the usual links, and also provided a link to this group. Could we maybe suggest to staff that a link to this group be added to the standard new user welcome messages?

lmao, I tried to join the group, but I already joined so I was like "Wheres the freaking button?"
It doesn't help when most of the new members are just spamming, and selling their companies products.
On a side note, is it me, or does it seem that this would be a weird thing to post if say, I, or Recreate, or someone posted this topic...
I'm happy to see this surfacing again - I'd almost forgot it was around!
