I have tried from several different computers thinking maybe it was my laptop but it seems to happen everywhere.... I pretty much always got my questions answered, although sometimes I would have to say... ok, put it in sequence that my pretty little brain can handle... lol.... I loved the forum, but it really irritates me alot when i have to relog-in constantly.... I sent sent a message through the contact us link a while back but have not heard anything from it..... otherwise... this site got me through a lot while I tried to do things and I have not worked on things in a while because I havent found another site that I felt that the posters were as knowledgeable as they are on this site.

The first thing that I would try is a 'hard refresh' of the browser when you on our page. Press Control and F5 at the same time, and let it reload the page. That is supposed to refresh your cookies (the likely culprit) and all of the images that the site uses.

I see 26 pictures in your gallery. Was there more? It may be a permissions thing on my end that I can fix if I can see them and you cannot.

If you are being logged off, that is most certainly an issue with your cookies. You could manually search for all cookies from this site and delete them. Most browsers have a cookie search function.

I apologize about the gallery, as I am unsure what has happened since my arrival here.

Default How about a glossary?

There's a lot of specific language used in the trades; and there are regional differences. it might compliment this site nicely if there was a place to go to check up on a word or phrase that was new to me.

I like the idea. However, I will admit that I am not very well versed in the language of the trades. If someone were to make a list of what they know, I would be more than willing to compile everything in one place.

Default jargon

Well, for the pro's it not like in the books.
This may help,http://www.homebuildingmanual.com/Glossary.htm
And that is only a start. terminology for the same thing sometimes changes with geographical locations.
What I call a "rim joist", a guy in Cali calls it a "band joist"....same thing. And yet another tradesperson will call it "outside box". Still the same thing...
And to complicate it even further, if you extend the "rim joist" over the foundation point into a cantilever (extension), it then becomes a "header".
Basically still the same thing.

Starting with the link as a sticky may help. That is an awful lot of work to rewrite the o'l dictionary.

Lots of work; probably true. Maybe simpler if there was one for each of the major categories on the site. Still a lot of work but more distributed.

I am fairly new to forums, so I don't want to upset anyone. I do however have one problem:
Does anyone review the posts for relevance and/or age of the posts? I've noticed that some of the posts are more than a couple years old. Also, some posts aren't relevant to the thread topic. I think that it would be easier to search through threads for help on a subject if the threads were cleaned up occasionally. Does anyone do that?

I had noticed that you have a blogs link but when I click on it its just the home page. Same thing with some of the other links. I thought it would be neat to have the blogs link go to blogs that members of this forum have. I think it would offer some great insight to the people of this forum. What do you think?

I am working to develop them. I'll make an announcement when I have it done. Thanks for bringing back to my attention.
