|What is the Message Board for?
When you click on the Delphi link you are passed to a Web-based message
board which Delphi calls a CustomForum. The message board keeps a record
of participants' comments in an orderly and easy-to-read manner. Discussion
on different topics can be organized into "threads" which enable participants
to view the entire conversation, from the first note to the last. This
organization allows everyone's comments to be viewed in the order they
Can I use the Message Board?
To use the Message Board, you need to have Netscape 2.0, Microsoft Internet
Explorer 3.0 or America Online version 3.0 (or better). These browsers
support "cookies," an essential technology for accessing the CustomForum.
What happens if I use it?
When you first visit the Message Board, you are asked to register. Delphi
say this is so that 'we can show them pertinent messages (e.g. those
they haven't read yet), be provided the personalized features such as the
MyDelphi page, and be an identifiable member of a strong community of people.'
Some forums ask for information on your age, sex, etc, for advertising
purposes - the Wild Flower Page doesn't.
|How do I register?
You just register once and it only takes a minute. You need to choose
and enter a password. If you wish, this can be saved so that, on future
visits, you just enter your Membername and then click on the Login button.
What can go wrong?
If you get an error that says "Membername/Password combination invalid"
- what does that mean? You are mistyping your Email Address, Password,
or both. To
access the Message Board, you must use the Email Address and Password
combination that you chose when you first created your account. If you
cannot recall that information, please refer to the email you received
after signing up, entitled "Your CustomForum account has been registered".
This message contains a reminder of your login information.
