Have you found the do-da's yet?

The manna is a way to encourage people.  If you read a post you especially like, or if someone posts about a touogh time they are having, you may give manna to that person.  The system only lets you give it so often.

I'll give you some manna as a welcome!
Hi Janine.  Thank you. No, I still haven`t figured the doo~da`s out yet.  How would I give someone a manna, or they me?   Thanks for explaining what it means.

Just registered! I was reading today as a guest and got interested, so I joined. Hope I can stay around awhile. I have no intention of changing anyone, I may offer my opinion and I do have some strong ones but I have been around the block long enough to know when to hold'em and when to fold'em.

What do the stars mean? Are they based on the number of postings, on if I'm a good girl, or what?

Hi, I'm new also but on other sites the stars are one for x number of post.

Yup, number of posts and when you post 50 times you will be able to give Manna.

Manna is similar to a collection of Gold Stars ---a little pat on the back from the other posters.  However, you could have 50 people give you kudos for something you said and 1 might remember to click and give you Manna ---so most people don't pay much attention to it.?
I would suggest going to that section on FAQ along with the forum rules ---so many people have asked questions ---you will find out alot of technical stuff there, it's fun what you find out -----I'll tell you one neat thing...in the right corner of your post  -if you click "modify" --even weeks later you can change or fix a post of yours, for example.    And as Janine said, The "Preview" button is your friend.

Sorry. I was making a pun about the meaning of the word manna. In Hebrew it literally means "what is it".

(yeah, I've read most of the technical stuff - read it about 2 weeks after I'd been here. But somehow I missed the mysterious meaning of the stars!)

                      BTW  I always sort of consider Manna to be a kind of symbolic kudo.
Have patience, I am 82 years old and new to computers. I don't belong in this century but I am enjoying some of it. JESUS is king. JESUS ALWAYS HAS AND ALWAYS WILL KEEP HIS PROMISES.

John 3.16 contains great theology, without doubt.

Read God's Word prayerfully every day; it's a joy and privilege.

If folks feel they must have TATTOOS, have you considered having faith related designs tattooed?

(And try vacationing in the South: plenty of sun, and some great churches down there!)

Am I mistaken ?   Harry Crane from Dexter?
