It could be that I need to look a little further, but are you going to have instructions, or panels that show the tools you can use - on the posting pages? It would be wonderful.

Click on the little blue ? icon above the posting box for posting instructions. Or click "Help" in the menu at the top of the page for general instructions. Anything else, just ask here!

Long live the search function!

Milt, there's also the Help page that you can access from the top menu. You'll find a "Quick Guide" that I wrote very quickly, so it still lacks sophistication and illustration. (Volunteers needed to improve it.)

Peter (& Ben), thanks so much for the new version. I love it already... Methinks the updated site will save me at least 15 minutes of D-word browsing a day; of course, since it's so easy, I'll probably be wasting time, er, posting even more than before. Great job!

Okay, a couple of other questions that come up for me -- just suggestions for the future "to-do" list, perhaps?

  1. spell check for postings (I think we had talked about this at one point)]
  2. when email notification of posting following yours occurs, can it tell you who posted after you instead of just saying "someone"?

Most modern browsers will provide automatic spell check - and who's to decide the default spelling for an inbuilt D-Word checker - "color" or "colour"?

You say tomato...

Got the error the first time I tried to upload my photo. Was trying to do 3 different things at once, I'm sure it was because it was way too big and a TIFF. When I reduced it and converted to JPEG it was fine, but might be nice to give the specs for photos. Otherwise, a fabulous job, congratulations.
