Default Communications questions

Couple of questions about communicating in the club:

Using Private Messages, can you copy another member in the same message -- especially when you're discussing a contribution the other member did and want to credit? This is when you're working up to a post, but not quite there yet.

Also, when you're drafting a post and have to put it away for awhile (to look up stuff, or sleep, or whatever), what'* the best way to "save" and continue to edit later it for additions and simplicity, without losing it eventually into the "electronic ether"? :(

(Also, no matter how hard I try Bill W, I just can't seem to get more than one space after a period )

Thanks,

Slug

Sorry..no way to cc someone in a pm

I tend to copy and then paste into the section I'm picking up a piece of and edit..then copy and paste to where it'* ending up. No way to save unless you say sent a pm with it to yourself.

Double space is simple.. press the space bar twice. It may look like one space, but it'* all good.

Well, I was one-quarter serious......

On the other hand, I wouldn't count willwren out for having a way to do it.

So on posts, you guys are just going back and forth from the BC draft to an applicable and easy word processor. That'* kind of what I figured, but found it really awkward. I have to learn to "window" better and I'm sure that will help.

Thanks guys!


(by the way John, I was born and raised right across the Memorial Drive from Robinsdale. I can remember when it was just a bunch of hills and brush on that side)
