      What to do if you get a "Wrong Password" message   01/21/16

      You must reset your password (even if you know it's the right one) before you can sign into the community. Thanks to the upgrade, there's an issue with passwords and signing in. The good news is that you can click here: http://community.grandparents.com/index.php?/lostpassword/ to change your password (it'll let you reuse your old one). If you can't reach the email address connected to your account then please contact the admin at latoya@grandparents.com and I'll help you sort it out.

      Anonymous posting is back   01/21/16

      We've removed the extra step that required you to go to the full-page editor to access the anonymous post option. Now, you can reply to a post and toggle the button to post anonymous (see photo below).    Read more on anonymous posting here:    In short, the mods can see who posts as anonymous, we moderate anonymous posts the same as revealed posts, you can reply anonymously to your own topic, you may report anonymous posts.

Welcome new members... BUT...

Question

This area of our forum is: Member Questions

Technical glitches? Questions? Anything not covered in the FAQ can be asked here. All topics must be related to the community.

Please read: 

New members MUST amass 10 posts before they can start a topic of their own. Jump into conversations around each category and get a feel of the forum, but please do not bump (reply to) old threads that are more than about three months old.

To help to amass your 10 posts so you can start your own topic in any of our forums, click on one and reply to a pinned (green thumb tack) topic.  These topics are open without worry about bumping.

Our most active forum is MILA:

 

 

Look around, I'm sure you can find a conversation to participate in.

UPDATE:  The administration has given us permission to move a post that isn't  a Technical glitch? Question? Anything not covered in the FAQ can be asked here. All topics must be related to the community.

So any post to vent or ask for advice will be moved to a more appropriate forum.

Meanwhile, if you'd like some ideas about how (or how not to) amass those 10 posts mentioned above, you might want to check out the following thread in Club Newcomer:

 

This ^^^^ includes a list of lightweight threads where you (general) may feel very comfortable posting.

ETA: 10 posts are also required to open your own blog (see Blogs, above, left) or use the Gallery.

Please also avoid hijacking another member's thread. Talking about your own concerns/problems as a way of showing empathy or to share a solution is fine. But seeking advice for/discussion of your own issues, not so much. If you can't open your own thread, as yet, please look for a more general one  - usually posts started by a moderator - and comment in there instead.

Another thought - If you read a thread from a few years back, please realize that rules that are in place now may not have been in place then. So comments that are violations now may not have been violations back then. In fact, please understand that the current rules are not retroactive - we moderators don't/aren't required to go back and delete/edit posts in those very old threads.

As you can see, the current guidelines were posted in January 2015 though they have been further refined since then:

 

ETA: Though this ^^^^ says "on this forum," these rules actually apply to the entire Community - Forums, Blogs, Gallery, etc. In fact, there is a thread like this one or the link to it in every forum.

The GP.com definitions of "personal attack" were posted in April 2013 and also further refined since then (see also # 5d in the guidelines thread):
