You can use unicode polytonic Greek. Read more at Elpenor's help pages. Please don't copy and paste your text from MS Word or other processors, because it will appear distorted and will be removed and lost. You should be able to write Greek directly in the message editing area. Always write the title of your post (subject) in English, so that all visitors may have an idea of what is published. Please note: if you was able to post and read messages in Greek, but your browser now displays garbage instead of Greek, first check in View - Encoding if Unicode UTF-8 is selected. If it is not, you must select it manually, if it is already selected, try to close your browser and then open it again to see if the problem is fixed.
Moderators control individual forums. They may edit, delete, or prune any posts in their forums.
You may delete all cookies set by these Communities in selecting the "logout" button at the top of any page.
Active Topics are tracked by cookies. When you click on the "active topics" link, a page is generated listing all topics that have been posted since your last visit to these Communities (or approximately 20 minutes).
Editing Your Posts
You may edit or delete your own posts at any time. Just go to the topic where the post to be edited or deleted is located and you will see a edit or delete icon () on the line that begins "posted on..." Click on this icon to edit or delete the post. No one else can edit your post, except for the Community Moderator or the Community Administrator.
For security reasons, you may not attach files to any posts. However, you may cut and paste text into your post (but don't paste text in Greek).
Searching For Specific Posts
You may search for specific posts based on a word or words found in the posts, user name, date, and particular Community(ies). Simply click on the "search" link at the top of most pages.
Editing Your Profile
You may easily change any information stored in your registration profile by using the "profile" link located near the top of each page. Simply identify yourself by typing your Username and Password and all of your profile information will appear on screen. You may edit any information (except your Username).
You can not attach signatures automatically to the end of your posts.
The Community does censor certain words that may be posted; however, this censoring is not an exact science, and is being done based on the words that are being screened, so certain words may be censored out of context. By default, words that are censored are replaced with asterisks.
Changing a lost password is simple. All of the pages that require you to identify yourself with your Username and Password carry a "lost Password" link that you can use to have a code e-mailed instantly to your e-mail address of record that will allow you to create a new password. Because of the Encryption that we use for your password, we cannot tell you what your password is.
Can I be notified by e-mail when there are new posts?
Yes, the Subscription feature allows you to subscribe to the entire Board, individual Categories, Forums and/or Topics, depending on what the administrator of this site allows. You will receive an e-mail notifying you of a post that has been made to the Category/Community/Topic that you have subscribed to. There are four levels of subscription:
- Board Wide Subscription
If you can subscribe to an entire Board, you'll get a notification for any posts made within all the Communities inside that board.
- Category Wide Subscription
You can subscribe to an entire Category, which will notify you if there was any posts made within any topic, within any Community, within that Category.
- Community Wide Subscription
If you don't want to subscribe to an entire Category, you can subscribe to a single Community. This will notify you of any posts made within any topic, within that Community.
- Topic Wide Subscription
More conveniently, you can subscribe to just an individual topic. You will be notified of any post made within that topic.
Each level of subscription is optional. The administrator can turn On/Off each level of subscription for each Category/Community/Topic.
To Subscribe or Unsubscribe from any level of subscription, you can use the "My Subscriptions" link, located near the top of each page to manage your subscriptions. Or you can click on the subscribe/unsubscribe icons ( ) for that Category/Community/Topic you want to subscribe/unsubscribe to/from.
What does it mean if a Community has Moderation enabled?
Moderation: This feature allows the Administrator or the Moderator to "Approve", "Hold" or "Delete" a users post before it is shown to the public. Approve: Only the administrators or the moderators will be able to approve a post made to a moderated Community. When the post is approved, it will be made viewable to the public. Hold: When a user posts a message to a moderated Community, the message is automatically put on hold until a moderator or an administrator approves of the post. No one will be able to view the post while it is put on hold. NOTE: Authors of the post will be able to edit their post during this mode. Delete: If the administrator or moderator chooses this option, the post will be deleted and an e-mail will be sent to the poster of the message, informing them that their post was not approved. The administrator/moderator will be able to give their reason for not approving the post in the e-mail.
