    Could someone remind me how to start a conversation. I used that option once but have forgotten how to do it. (Imagine that!) GB66

    GB, I give up sometimes here, there was a Conversation button on top and I used it at one time, and now I don't see it.....one would click on that "word" conversation and then type in who they wanted to converse with, but I don't see it now....don't know. jm

    If you are referring to the "Chat Room" go to the top and click on "Community" and you will find the chat room there. :)

    TL, there WAS a Conversation button that one could connect with someone....I'm not talking Chat Room, never went there yrs back....don't even know if it still exists....I thought when we got this new board there was going to be some kind of Private Message PM deal and I thought maybe the Conversation button was that....I used it once in the beginning but now don't see it up there on the lines....I'm not sure what GB is thinking about....

    Maybe the Mods can let us know where the Conversation tab went....Is there, in fact, a PM way to connect with another...On that Conversation but one could connect with up to 5 people, I do remember that.....jam

    I just figured it out, by accident, I went to my username and clicked and up came the conversation link so I sent a conversation to TL and GB, tried Diane, but it's blocked....so...hope everyone figures it out. Up pops all the usernames on this group and you choose the one that fits who you want to talk to.

    Okay, I see now where that is. Thanks, Jamin!

    I just typed a long message in the new conversation format but can't find it on here anywhere.
    Does anyone see it? lol If not, I'll do it again. I'm not a fan of this new format.

    Thanks for your help "confusedinpa" and "jamin". I am SO lost on here. I used to enjoy a challenge before I got so sick but now it just makes me tense and shakey.

    The "conversation" is a private message that goes to the InBox, not onto the forum for everyone else to see.

    Thank you Diane and Lydia and TigerLilea. I found it. I'm not really discouraged so much as I get so tired trying to use it now. It's not working right on my screen when I answer posts or answer in the conversation format. Holly got it straightened out for reading but not writing. My screen is still running over and I have to keep going back and fourth to read. I'm still trying to recover from a tooth extraction last Friday and just can't concentrate too well. GB66

    I am wondering if anyone has heard from Rosemarie. I haven't seen her post on here yet. I don't remember her screen name either. I know a lot of posters names but not their screen names.

    GB66 - I think I've fixed the reply width. Let me know if that seems better.

    Diane, Maybe Rosemarie and the others will drop in soon. I miss them. That's a cute kitty. I have a picture of my cat I wanted to put up but can't figure out how to get it from my pictures to the board. He was 17 years old when we had to have him put down. He had diabetes and was very ill. He was a Russian Grey and at one time weighted about 20 pounds. I miss him so much.

    Holly thanks for all the work you're doing on this. No, the reply is the same. As I type this post it goes off the page at about the halfway point, just like to reading format used to do. GB66
