OK, I am an idiot. Where do I go to read about things such as: how do I set up a ping?

Thank you all for the help!

“If you want to be on someones ping list(a subject interests you), just Freepmail or post to that person and they will add you to the list.”

Ah... I “assumed” I’d add pings to my own list, somehow. Anyway, all the links you all posted will really help. Thanks again.

Perfect!

I’m pretty sure I shouldn’t ask if there is a way to see an index of existing ping lists... but I cannot help myself.

Thanks-

THIS will prove useful in explaining certain terms that are more or less unique to FR. There are, as well, things we...just...can't explain. A+Bert, for one.

Welcome to FR.

Just who is this guy “All” that keeps getting pinged and is a ping the opposite of a pong? America wants to know!

Hey Slim.

In most places, asking to find the users guide is an indicator that there will be “effort” and it usually leads to “understanding” ....

I appreciate your help. Thanks!

What was wrong with the thread you posted yesterday?

Noob Forum?

Do you plan to start a new thread every time you have a question?

No such file (give_legacy_article) but... is there an active repository somewhere?
It's there. Just keep hitting the F5 (refresh) button on your keyboard until the thread comes up.

Here’s a link to the 2007 master list, I know it’s been updated since then.

Holy Crap! Say, I think you were supposed to beat me senseless first... but I’m OK with skipping that step! Thanks!

I can do that if that's how you wish your initiation to begin. ;0

Actually, this thread is probably my fault. I suggested yesterday that the poster’s original question was a good one, and there might be a need for a n00b Forum thread, where all the people who have just signed up could come and get their questions answered. Of course it was understood they’d be razzed as well.

But don’t blame the Wiz for this thread. It was my idea! ;-D

Hey Wiz, sorry I missed out on your first fun noob thread yesterday. Welcome to Free Republic where the beatings will continue until morale improves. The pain is worth the gain. If you want to have more fun here, try mispelling a word or two or using the wrong word like your/you’re. That takes the painful responses to a whole new level of pleasure! ;-)
