Setting Changes on Message Board - Email Icons Activated

Postby janet » Sat May 22, 2010 9:17 pm

Heads up ...

The option for "Users Can Contact Me By Email" has been activated across the message board.

If you do not want to have your email accessible to everyone, you will have to deactivate it for your account.

Follow these steps to do so:
1. Click on User Control Panel, top left of your screen
2. Click Board Preferences
3. Select Yes or No to allow "Users Can Contact Me By Email" - selecting no will hide your email from everyone


Sorry, but this was the only way to get my email address available to everyone for a short time while we work on the Thank You Project.

Also, Jan and I are playing with the settings to allow embedding of YouTube and FLV links on the Board. It's a slow process. LOL

Please ignore any "unusual sightings" until we get it straightened out.

You can e-mail the video, I'm sure.

Hotmail can take HUUUUGE attachments now, and 15s probably won't be enormous. And even if you can't attach it to the e-mail, you can always upload it to mediafire and send the link :)

yes Kate, you can email a video. I've sent videos through email many times! 15 seconds of video will be fine to send. :)

Looks like you got your answer, Kate. Like the others said, just attach the video to your email as you would pictures and it will come through fine.

And .... deactivated!

For security reasons. With all the spammers coming here now, I thought it best to turn off the email icons so randoms can't get your email addresses.
