    Hello Interested Permaculture Person

    Welcome to the PRI Forum!

    Some points to note:

    * The 'search' facility (top right hand corner) is a good place to start.

    * Introduce yourself. Keep it as simple, or make it as elaborate as you wish.

    * Put your location (bio-region) in your 'bio', especially if you are going to ask site-specific questions.

    * Understand that there is never a 'stupid' question - very rarely is there among we humans 'an original thought'. However, and again, do try to use the 'search' facility first.

    * Enjoy your stay!

    Just wondering and just in case I missed it, is there an Edit option on your own posts. I noticed a spelling error in one of mine and want to fix it. Australian Freshwater Turtles runs on V Bulletin also and has the edit option. Thanks for any help.

    Hmmm I can see it on this post but not on my Composting Worms for Sale

    There's a time limit. You can edit within that, but not afterwards.

    Thanks. On AFT I can edit anytime. Not sure if it is because I am a Moderator or not. Thanks again

    I know it is possible to Edit your own post with V Bulletin so maybe the Powers Above us poor mortals maybe able to look at it.

    You can always ask a Mod and we'll do it for you if it is really important.
    I guess it is like real life - don't always get to take back what you say or do....

    I always try to read everything back to myself to see if I spelt it correctly ( well as good as I can lol) and if it sort of makes sense ( to me anyway). I only ever try to tell the truth and noyt write rubbish that I need to remove.

    The Turtle Forum has just moved to a new server and we now have spell check. Something I have asked for now for a long time.

    I am new to this site but experienced in permaculture. I was looking for another permaculture forum and this was near the top of the search.
    I am a bit disappointed, though, in the structure on this forum.
    The Valley Permaculture Alliance (Phoenix AZ) had a great site with 10 to 15 topics with each sending "new post" notifications to a registered audience. VPA disolved recently and the site is gone but from my memory some of the individual topics were:
    - water
    - soils
    - trees
    - forum issues
    - livestock
    - pests
    - building
    - equipment
    - businesses
    - humor
    - general
    It was very easy to stay on top of the particular issues I was interested in. Posts could be cross referenced in a couple of topics. I realize that the search function will pull up related posts but an overall structure of topics can be very helpful.

    unfortunately, there is a lot of dated content now, but i don't think anyone really wants to go back and work on that.

    at least with my current fiddling i've found out that i can go back and edit old posts to correct things (links that were out of date).

    to me that is a nice improvement! :)
