Welcome to the new H2G2 (or noohootoo as we lovingly call it). smiley - smiley
The site is currently undergoing some major changes in appearance as well as having a big 'For Sale' sign in the front garden, so it is a little difficult to know what to tell you.
There are still various bugs which may block your postings, and smileys only work if written in forum code (if they work at all).
You are very welcome to join the 'Save h2g2 Group', information about which you will find at http://www.bbc.co.uk/entry/A80173361

Reading the h2g2 Post (you'll find a link to it on the Front Page) is another good idea to get information.

To be in a skin that works try http://bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2

If you have any questions, please ask.

Bel

I just wish I could stop getting completely lost in the old and new sites and then just stuck and unable to find anything, spouting complete and utter tripe most of the time!

Does this sound normal for a newcomer?

I only had one system to deal with when I joined, so I never felt lost.
I have my PS (with the dna url) bookmarked. This way, I am always in the skin that works when I sign in. smiley - winkeye

One purpose of the new system was to make things easier for newbies. smiley - erm

If it doesn't work, I guess you'd best stay in the old skin. Just click on 'my space' to return to your PS. smiley - ok

About the quality of your posts: that sounds like an old hand - it's what makes h2g2 so special.

smiley - laugh

Your very kind Bel smiley - smiley I'm afraid I'm learning the hard way with some of the games especially the cryptic ones. But everyone's been very forgiving (so far)

Your right about bookmarking both skins, both have their advantages. I must admit I prefer the old skin to type in, I suppose I've gotten far too used to that size box for typing in from the other Beeb boards smiley - wah

Is it true the Beeb is trying to flog h2g2?

I've seen you've ventured into the Cryptic clues. I never get them (well, I once did), they're way too cryptic for me, I'm afraid. You may like the Printer's Devilry game, too: F2137311?thread=7699285&skip=0&show=20

I'm afraid the Beeb is very serious about selling h2g2. smiley - sadface

smiley - sadface Typical, I just hope 1. it doesn't happen (Is there a petition?) and 2. if it does happen, everyone has to reregister and the company who buy's isn't just handed everyone's BBC held details.

Ooo could I possibly pick your brains Bel? I 've noticed my ID name here has become doubled up: DireTribe - DireTribe, I only noticed it yesterday after I'd been mucking about with 'My Personal Space' Have I broken something? I'm just plain 'DireTribe' on the other BBC boards still? (sorry you must get sick of daft questions like this)
