Hi friends,

Many of you have been asking for a little more support in using the site. Our volunteers will stop by this discussion and answer your questions.

Don't forget these other ways to get help using the site:

  • Welcome newsletters 1 to 4. These are sent to new members over the course of their first few weeks on the site. They are here (under the "Help" tab) for your reference whenever you like!
  • Privacy basics. This page will help new members understand how to most safely use the site, and how to customize your settings for your own comfort.
  • Village Values. This page describes some of our community's standards and values, and includes a few tips on how to connect and share.
  • The Chat Room. If you are comfortable with Chat already, you can pop in there. Chat is open 24/7, but is especially busy during US evening hours, so that is when you are most likely to find someone who's been on the site a while and can help you find it or do it easier!

If you'd like to a more private way to submit your question, please email us at [email protected] and you'll receive an email response back from us.

It was a discussion, not a specific group. Thanks, I’ll keep trying!

that's really odd Carol, I hope you get it figured out.   

Trying my best to upload a photo on here of my Christmas tree.  I clicked on the icon that says "Image" when you hover over it but the photo was HUGE and laying on its side.  I tried another's suggestion to go to My Widville and look for My Photos but I never found anything that said My Photos.  Anyone know how I can post the photo?  Many thanks.

I need to amend my prior post.....I've figured out how to upload my photos.  Now I need to figure out how to put the photo into a blog post.

I'm trying to find any events in my area but when I type in my state nothing is found her yet I do see things in Florida how can I locate any events in my area

We do have a group in the Tampa area that I think sometimes meets over your way.  They do have an event scheduled for Sunday, December 9, at Pier 22, 1200 1st Avenue W in Bradenton at 1pm.   

Here's a link to the group's Facebook page:

Do you know how to send a friend request?

Go to the profile of the person you wish to have as a friend and you'll see "Add as a Friend" there. Just click on those words to send the request.
