    Up until a few days ago this board showed up in my email and now I finally find it at www.quiltingboard.com and going to main and I am not happy with what is going and do not understand. Can anyone help or do I just give up and quit this board?

    Not sure what you mean. I have no problem finding it. I have it as my homepage, so it comes up everytime I sign into my computer.

    Put it as one of your favorites and you can get right to it. I was getting the email and cancelled it, deciding I preferred to just get it another way.

    I have it on my favorites (bookmark). I never sign out. I just click in favorites, click on QB and I'm on the message board. I have never gone thru my e-mails.

    I have mine as a shortcut on my desk top. Goes right to it. I check recent topics first then unread topics.Don't always read my quiltingboard email.

    Do this if you want a quick way to get here. You don't need to go into your email.
    On the top of the screen-next to "Quilting Board-The Quilters Message Board" info area, right click anywhere in the blank area. Click on "Create Shortcut". A message will come up asking if you want to place this site on your desktop. Choose "Yes". An icon with "Quilting Board" will show up and you just click on that when you turn on your computer. Or whenever. Keep in mind you may want to make sure you are at the "home' page of the Quilting Board. If you do this with any other screen, that is the screen that will come up when you open the shortcut on your desktop.

    I have a shortcut on my links bar. I don't have to go into my favorites or my desktop or anything. Just click it on my browser window. I get the emails still but admit I never look at them. I think I read one and since then, never even opened them.

    Okay, if any of my answer sounds too simple, forgive me. Not sure what your problem is.

    First of all, you'll get an automatic response when someone responds to a thread you've responded to.

    Second--to the right of "main" is "quilting forum" Hit that and you'll find several folder choices. "main" is first, "pictures" second and other stuff after that. "Pictures" is the folder where you can find everyone's photos of their work.

    third": Always remember "www.quiltingboard.com" in case you lose all your other links.

    not sure what your problem is...i get my 'newsletter' every day...and do not know of any problems with our site...i hope what ever issues you have going on do not mean you feel the need to leave the board. i don't think there are any negative things happening with the board itself

    I never subscribed to the newsletter and just go to the quiltingboard website whenever I have a bit of time to spend here. Not a problem for me. I browse all sections/areas that interest me and quite frankly have no desire to have another email coming to me everyday. Once logged in I can see what I've read and not read and just continue on that way.

    There are always problems with computer things and don't understand why you would want to quit the board because of something that is possibly just a mix up and nothing personally directed at you.

    I will also add this to my post above: When you turn on your computer, your desktop pops up. Click on the QuiltingBoard icon that you placed on the desktop after creating the shortcut. You dont need to open up a browser, home page, or anything. The link puts you right on the internet, and right on the Quilting Board page. Use this if you want to go nowhere else besides the Board when you get on your computer. After you read all the new posts, look at all the pictures you missed, etc., you can open more tabs and go to your homepage (MSN for the news is mine), email, etc.

    Me, too. IGoogle is my home page and it has a section for favorite bookmarks. Every time I turn on the computer, I click into the board.
