 ;D I had to laugh at my query regarding Martin having five little squares and me only having one.  Did you wring your hands in exasperation at that?  I think I will be keeping my head down and not shouting or reprimanding any one.  We are all grown ups, says she, after asking why she didn't get as many squares as Martin!!! :-[

There you go Pam, now you have 5. You will notice on the Forum welcome page below the title 'General Discussion', the board Moderators are listed ie. MR and PamMcD.
You just earned 4 more little squares ;D ;D ;D

Seriously, please be very careful when wielding your Moderator sword. There are literally thousands of small 'help Q&A's' on the Web, to guide you when you are trying to achieve something ie. warn somebody; ban somebody; whatever; ......... etc. Some damage may be irreparable.

Using your preferred search engine, preface your search terms with 'SMF'.
eg. SMF How do I change my avatar?

The people, out there, providing the Answers to your Questions may, probably will, paint with a very broad brush, and may assume that you are an experienced SMF forum user/Moderator/Administrator. Please don't shout back at them when they do not appear to understand your question, or you cannot understand their answer. Emojis work wonders when setting the tone of a conversation. Take the time to look at the date that any of their previous answers were provided, you might be surprised how long this software has been around.

On top of all of that, varying versions of SMF will have varying menu/click/mouseover sequences, to achieve a given task. We are using SMF 2.0.18 should you want to include it in your search terms.

Finally, if you should wish to involve other Moderators/etc. in your search for answers, be sure to provide a link to the page that you are looking at, so that all concerned can refer to the same page. There is also good reading on the Web regarding the powers of Users, Local Moderators, Global Moderators, and Administrators. Consult Dr Google, Duck Duck Go, Yahoo, etc.

Still took forever to open, so probably need a warning about that in the prelim "We are open" message.  Also a reassuring comment to follow the once-only link from MB to register.
