    Help around forum

    Is there a map or instructions? I don't know the diff between a post and a thread; what does subscribe mean; what is the "pm" (is that post message to someone in particular?).

  2. Android.net is the premier Android Forum. Registered users do not see these ads. .

    What you just did is a "post" which started a"thread"(series of posts) a pm is a private message you send to another member.
    Subscribing to a thread means you'll get email notices when someone posts to that thread.

    end of line...

    And titanman,^^^ that is what you call hijacking a thread - posting an unrelated post into a thread.

    emendoza: if you want help, you'll need to give people a little more information. My suggestion would be to post a new thread in the section for your phone, and make sure to post the whole entire app name as shown in the market so people know which app you are talking about. That way we will be better able to help you, as there are multiple apps that use the term "vault", and each one has a slightly different way of treating/hiding pictures.
    Chances are they aren't *gone*, just hidden - which is the point of the app.

    By posting in this thread, you probably won't get as much help as you would creating a thread with the subject detailing what you need help with. Something like "Need help with ___ Vault App". HTH

    EDIT: Nevermind. I see you posted in this thread, as well as creating 2 other threads all with the same question.... <sigh>

    @titanman: that is what you call "cross-posting". It is frowned upon in most forums - including this one. (At least this thread is helping you understand a lot of the terminology though! LOL)

    As you can see, some people don't pay much attention to what they should do.

    We like you, Titanoman, and your efforts to learn more and play by the rules are GREATLY appreciated.

    No, titan, that was directed at emendoza. That's why I quoted *his* post.

    I was simply using his post as an example to teach you a few more of the terms you may hear in various discussions. As FBM said above, you've been a decent newcomer, asking valid questions and participating in various threads. And we gotta give you props for trying to learn more about the etiquette of forums - which many of us long time users sometimes take for granted that most people know when we throw around those terms.
