    NEW MEMBERS CHECK-IN THREAD #6

    Welcome to Jackpine Radicals.

    We are a site dedicated to progressive people and progressive ideals.

    Please come and join us for fun, discerning and informative conversation. You can rest assured that your individual take on things will be appreciated.

    I would suggest that you familiarize yourself with the minimal rules we have here on JackPineRadicals before you start posting. They are found in About JackPineRadicals and Community Standards & Guidelines. Links to both are on the bottom of every page should you need them later.

    There is a pretty vast amount of information regarding things such as posting pictures and individualizing your avatar and signature in Help & Q&A. This informative thread is linked in your left hand navigation area under Main Forums.

    We are asking all members to become familiar with the rules and report anything that they think need be addressed. This is YOUR site and we need you to tell us when something posted is against the rules or is offensive.

    If you would like to introduce yourself to the community, post a reply on this thread.

    It should also be noted that naming other sites by name is forbidden. So we have set up a system of alternative names to get around this rule. Just ask members how to do it.

    And thanks for joining our merry little band.

          but I think you need to make 10 replies before you can make an original post. Something like that.

      28. Hello folks,

      I am also a refugee from SV, but I only lurked there.  I had joined and was about to compose an OP, just when the stench emanating from said site began to be worse than a mere open window could handle.  Thus i never did post there so never got banned, but no doubt would have in pretty short order.

      I first voted Dem. in 1976 for Carter and in every election until 2016.  I was so disgusted by the spectacle of cheating in the primary, I left the party and voted for the Socialist candidate.  I suppose if I had lived in an at play state, I would have voted strategically, But I don’t so I didn’t have to!  I have since left the party, and won’t be going back until the Corporate scum is out of the party.  Happy to be here!

      When i can post OPs I suppose I will make some posts on Asian history and Culture as well as Asian (particularly Japanese and Korean) films.

          30. How many posts before you can make an OP?

          SFFH, I was wondering how many posts you needed before making an OP.  Anyone know? Believe me, I’m not here to flame or upset (at least intentionally) anyone, other than the corporate sellouts, but then they’ve got bribes to collect, so I am sure they don’t malinger around here.

          Your Blue Footed Boobies always crack me up.  Gosh, they are goofy.

            31. Everyone, including the most wonderful and perfect moi

            had to have ten (10) posts before they could make their first OP.

            I even managed to get slapped up side the head by @marym625 before I made my first ten!!!! Maybe even five, but I’m getting old and decrepit so I’m getting forgetful these days.

            So. I suggest you go to a fun thread in Bar and Grill and do some posting replies, and make damn good and sure you show up in Daily Trivia today, and I pretty much guarantee you’ll be able to post after. The bestest way to hit a bunch of posts in a hurry is the Daily Trivia. Always at 6 pm Eastern unless it isn’t which happens on Sundays when Ohio does it at 4 pm Eastern. Just lurk until it is posted today by that shifty little smarmy dude, @deadpool. Then join in and give him grief with the rest of us.

            Here:  https://jackpineradicals.com/boards/forum/jackpineradical-rooms/daily-posts-by-jackpineradicals/

            Its in the second group of forums in your toolbar on the left of the frame.

            That and have fun.

      49. Hi folks, I'm baaack!

      I haven’t posted in a year. I read JPR for a long time and realized I don’t have to remember my password to log in! DUHH!

      That gorgeous woman you see in my avatar is me, when I was in law school in 1982 and couldn’t get a date.  I can only conclude that male law students are stupid, but what else is new?

      It seems that the liberal FB groups are full of Hillarybots.  I do not feel at ease around those women.  They assume that if you’re a Dem or a liberal, you must be a Hillbot.  (((BANGHEAD)))  Will people ever get over the idea that she is the New Messiah or else a she-devil?

      I certainly don’t trust her.

      In case I sound familiar, at DU3 I was named MOL by MagickMuffin. Before that at DU I was Perragrande and before that, Opera Nut.
      Cheers!

        52. Welcome to JPR!!!!!

        I’m like the Court Idiot. I’m supposed to make you feel at home, but I just like having a lot of fun. We have lots of things to say and talk about, and we even have a ridiculously fun set of Forums to visit each and every day, under the Daily Posts by JackPine Radicals button. You just need to be warned about that nefarious @deadpool guy and you should be set to go.

        But watch out for Deadpool. I think he’s just too good of a person to be true, so that means he’s got some nefarious plan to take over the place.

            54. I think the vast majority of us are transplants.

            Sort of like a refuge for progressives at first but we’ve come a long way.

      55. Green Seeking Greens

      I hoped maybe to find some here. Or at least, a community where Greens aren’t trashed.

      I’m a GenXer and one-time East Coaster, but I’ve lived in the Pacific NW for almost 30 years.

      I discovered Jackpineradicals while researching some public healthcare info. Mary accepted my request to join, so here I am.

      Thanks. :)

        56. Welcome to JPR.

        There be a lot of greens here so you are more than welcome to join in and have some good times.

        Just make good and sure you avoid a guy going by the name @deadpool.

        He’s nefarious. And slick. And more than a little weird.

        You’ll find Mary to be marvelous, right @marym625 ?

        Have a bunch of family there. They aren’t part of the blueberry, more like cherry red.

        I see the one and only Marym has come to say hello, and she’s the top dog here.

        You have to watch out for that miscreant @deadpool, unless you need some help with posting stuff in which case he’s a genius.

        Other than that, welcome to a deep blue home……

        Well, considering I’m oldern’ dirt, you shouldn’t have to worry about it.

        Then again, we got that whippersnapper @deadpool that causes a whole bunch of trouble, so you want to avoid him like the plague. He’ll make me feel really old just to give me gas. Most everybody loves him so I’m beginning to wonder if this place is actually a looney bin and we just think it’s a normal political blog.

        82. First of all I'd like to say Hi!!

        Welcome to JPR!!!

        and as for your question, I don’t think you need to join it at all. I don’t ever remember being asked to join it. Then again, I’m old and senile. I think that one is an open forum, but since I’m not sure I’m gonna call that nefarious @deadpool to come and make sure I got this right for you.

        You wanna watch out for this Deadpool guy. He’s convinced a surprisingly large number of members that he’s actually a real nice guy but I don’t buy it for a minute because I’m his adopted dad.

        You can ask him just about anything concerning how to do things on the site or if you’re having trouble with browser or whatever. He may be a truant twelve year old, but he’s a real sharp truant twelve year old. His Q&A forum is top notch.

      85. How to share a post with a JPR friend

      If I want to share a news item/post with a JPR friend – how do I do this?

      If you can't entertain, get off the planet!  Capy
      • so far from heaven (15808 posts)
        Profile photo of So Far From Heaven Donor

        86. The best way is to call them to the post.

        In a reply BODY (not in the title) use an at and the friends nickname. I’ll call you to this reply by typing

        @ratfancy and you will get a notice that I mentioned you in this thread. That means they usually want you to come there otherwise they wouldn’t use the call at. I have used this in the two replies above to call Deadpool, who appears to be taking a walkabout, to come to those replies and answer your questions. He’ll get to it when he’s back online here, I assure you.

        The other, which I use all the time with really close friends is to just send them a PM and copy the url for the thread I want them to go read. In fact, you can copy the reply url if you want them to go to a specific reply in a thread. The active url for this reply is showing as #post-907065. So if I want to give my friend a specific reply to go to (so they don’t have to wander all over the place to find it from the top) I just go to the thread and find the reply I want them to go to in the tree below the original OP body (those are the blue title trees at the top of the replies), click on the left part of the line that is the reply I want them to go to (the title of the reply) and my browser url shows the post number like the one I used above. Just paste that instead of the OP url and your friend gets linked directly to the reply you want.

        I would assume you could literally cut and paste the entire thread into a PM, but that’s a real waste of that resource. If I wanted to send you the url I’d just do the old control c/control v directly into the PM.

        One of the more useful but little known or used features of JPR is the fact that you are allowed multiple logins. That is where you remain logged in at the original widow and open a new window and log in to JPR so that you have two working windows. If I want to start a PM and know I’m going to be copying url’s into it, I usually right click MY JPR on the main menu at the top and open that in a new tab. It starts MY JPR in the new tab already logged in so I can then do the private message to my friend in that tab, and browse the threads I want to send the links to in the original tab. Real fast and clean.

        If you want to share something outside of JPR, then do the PM and just copy/paste the url of the webpage you want your friend to open and it is entered into the dialog box as a link automatically as long as the hypertext control is included at the beginning of the copied url. (That is usually either http:// or the secure version https://).

        Hope this helps.

            88. The Private Message plug in is a function of the My JPR forum.

            There are two ways to send a PM.

            Click on the users name in any reply of theirs and it’ll link you directly to that persons profile page. There are three blue buttons to the right of their profile avatar, the most right being the ‘private message’. Click that and go. Be sure to send the message (it’s a button at the bottom of the message dialog box) or you’l fail to send the message if you navigate out of the message window.

            Alternatively, there is a link to the user directory at the bottom of every page, and you can search that member and then proceed like you did above.

            That is one reason I like the ability to open a separate My JPR logged in so I can do all this stuff without floundering arond in only one window.

                and the only thing I can figure out is your browser. I’ll PM you and make sure the thing works.

                Aha!! there is another thing you can try:
