How to use the daily check-in board

Here's how we organize the check-ins in this forum.

  1. Every day someone (whoever gets to the forum first) starts a thread for the day. The first message is just a general welcome for everybody - not a personal check-in. Lots of times people like to use graphics to make the opening message welcoming. If you don't want to do that, that's fine.
  2. Make the subject of the thread starter the full date - day of week, month, day, and year.
  3. After the day thread is started, all check-ins are added as comments to the day thread. You should put your username and the check-in time somewhere in the subject so people (you and others) can see what what's what when scanning the "Recent Comments" list.

Thanks for helping to keep things organized here. :)

Welcome joyful!

you might have a better experiencing posting your daily check-in the daily check-in thread, rather than here. You can look on the right side for "Active forum topics" and usually today's date is listed there. Or you can click on the "Forums" tab, then under "Tools and Success Stories" choose "Daily Check-ins" and you'll see a list of days.

Wishing you happy recovery from procrastination!

Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.

using images in posts

I expanded the explanation at the top of the Graphics page of how to put images in posts. People who weren't able to follow the instructions before should be able to figure it out now. It's not hard.


Edit: The instructions on the graphics page assume you have the TinyMCE rich-text editor turned OFF. If you have it turned on, it's much easier. You just get the path to the image as described on the graphics page, and then enter it into the image dialog in the rich-text box. The evoke the dialog, click on the tree icon. Here's an example:
