    And you know...it also helps to read an entire thread through before replying or posting information to it. Sometimes people ask questions that have already been answered in previous posts.

    Daily Voting for Talk Disney.

    This is something that really helps Talk DIsney stay high in the search engines. It helps bring more guests and posible future members in to see the site.

    To help TD get better ratings...simply click on the little button under the shoutbox on the first page that says DISNEY TOP SITES.

    This will make another page open up with all the listings of the other Disney sites registered with this service. You can scroll down to see where TD is and how it's ratings are.

    You can also click on the link in the signature of any of my posts, Ryans and some of our moderator's posts who have the link added. (To give you all sorts of opportunities to click and help the search engine ratings whenever you want to...but it only counts once per day per member.)

    If we can get all of our members to do this every day wen they logon to the site before diving to TD right off the bat...our ratings will increase and that would be a very good thing.

    So if you can think of it...start clicking on the little link daily. Thanks!

    Signatures

    There is some question about signatures,website URLS in signatures and Non-Disney themed avatar usages here at TD. Let's try to shed some light on those subjects.

    Signatures can be added in your profile, available in the user cp. They can be up to 7 lines in length, but the usage of a website URL is not permitted. (And before anyone says "But..But.." Two people here are allowed to do so. One is the site's owner, and the other is the site's first member who also helped get the stie started and continues to moderate for us.)

    We also find that the inclussion of a lot of smilies in one's signature busy's up the post and looks sloppy. From this point on, we can't accept animated images in signatures no matter what it's size. Also...if an image is used...it can be no larger than 70X70...the size of an avatar...(Which is what the avatar is for to begin with, so placing it in your signature is kinda redundant and sloppy.)

    Regarding the avatars...we prefer to stick to Disney themed avatars. (In some rare cases, we have allowed non-Disney themed avatars, but those are generally of a quality animated feature or toher animated character that is not offensive.) They must be no larger than 70X70 in size so that the system will accept them. You can choose an avatar in the user cp area after you've posted a few posts. And after 150 posts...you can choose any of the many, many avatars offered in both the New Avatars as well as the Fresh Avatars threads.

    Some members or moderators have done extra work and duties to keep the site running and they may...at times...choose a non Disney themed avatar. This is generally a testing situation and they will eventually remove them. If this is seen from time to time on the board, please do not write and complain that "That's favoritism! So-and-so has this and so that means that I can do that." This is not a pleasant situation for anyone to cause, endure or deal with here at TD.

    The moderators and adminstrators continue to work terribly hard to maintain a quality site for everyone's enjoyment. If things seem a little different for them due to their jobs here...it is because of all of the hard work and effort that keeps TD running smoothly behind the scenes.

    There are rules to follow for any site, including TD. Some rules are different for those who run the site due to their many hours devoted to and work for TD. Please honor and respect this situation.

    Thank you.

    :mEars: Please allow me to add one comment here.
    All of the moderators and administrators here at TD live in different time zones, several are not even in North America.
    So, what may seem like a reasonable time for one may actually be an 8 hour or more time difference (in other words it's tomorrow for them).
    If something is being tested it may be changed at 3 A.M. PST here but it will be 11 A.M. for that particular moderator or administrator. :mEars:

    You will notices I added a local time section under everyone's name. This will help people understand that not everyone is in the same zime zone

    What do the site adminstrators and moderators do actually?

    Well...we are all people who love discussing Disney related stuff and our interests have brought us all together here to TD. We enjoy the threads and conversations, all the while trying to keep them going and interesting. We share info and news and fun just like our great members. The only difference is that we have to also patrol the posts to make sure that there are no offensive words or inflamatory posts that will intentionally upset people. We sometimes have to delete words/posts/threads to make sure that TD remains a family friendly environment where all ages can come and enjoy themselves together...safely.

    We who run the site consider everyone here like a family, and in every family...there are the parents who look after things and try to mainatin a peaceful and nurturing atmosphere. The moderators and administrators do have a few extra "perks" that go with the job...but they are simple things that are basically available to the members at large.

    Sometimes we have to move a thread that someone starts inone folder into one that suits the subject matter better so people can find it and enjoy it.

    We also have to delete images and avatars,etc. that people upload that are duplicates. It is hopefully an accident and we'ed like to keep the threads moving without haveing to deal with duplicate images.

    We have to try and mainatain a professional rapport with our members when they have a problem or need help with things that will make thier visit to TD more enjoyable or easier. When there are complaints in either threads or PM's...these are shared "Backstage" amongst the rest of the moderators/adminsitrators so that all know whatever situation that is occuring is going on and how to deal best with it. Sometimes it is the decision of the staff here at TD that a situation with a member's attitude or disrespect for the other members/mods/administrators has caused enough grief and they must be banned from the site. It is a rare situation indeed that leads to this decision to be carried out..but it has happened. It is an unfortunate circumstance as we are here for fun and to share and learn...but if a situation presents itself to this decision..it is discussed and then acted upon.

    But most of the time,it is great fun and we enjoy it tremendously and the posting with our members.

    You are who we do all of this for..and guess what?
    We do it because we enjoy it..and we do it for free!
    No one get's paid to administrate or moderate!

    So please keep in mind that when you are online here at TD and enjoying posting with an administrator or a moderator...they are here for you. and we all hope you enjoy TD as the great place that it is! And there's more fun in store coming soon! (I can't say anything at the moment..but we'll let you know!)

    Private Messaging

    Sometimes the site administrators or moderators have to contact members through Private Messaging whenever there is a problem.

    This can be about anything from objectionable material or posts, images/avatars, unsecure website link content, or even to alert members to unaccepatble behavior or uncalled for rudeness to other members. It's all for the good of the site and the safety and enjoyment of all of our members and is not a personal situation.

    When you recieve a PM from a moderator or adminsitrator, please keep in mind that we are all doing our jobs to help keep TD a wonderful site that we can all enjoy together...and sometimes...the PM's can be to give a member some information they may need or other positive answers to questions they may have.

    So Private Messaging is a cool function to have on a site like this and we hope you all continue to enjoy all that TD has to offer!

    Thumbs up Spell checking posts/thread names help!

    Here is a handy little download to assist in any posting spell checks and thread titles that might come up from time to time!

    It's called ieSpell, and it's a great little addition to the toolbar that will correct spelling mistakes before they are posted.

    It's free for personal use and available at http://www.iespell.com

    (Thanks to DP for the heads up on this!)
