  1.  “How do I start a new thread?”
    1. Go to the Board that you’d like to post in and click the "New Message" button on the left side of the screen, above where all the messages are.
  2.  “Why can’t I see my message??”/ “Why can’t I see replies to my thread?”
    1. Messages will show up after the moderators have read and approved them.  If you don’t leave the site, you can see your own message even if it hasn’t been approved yet, but no one else can see it.  

      The same goes for replies to your message – wait for them to be approved!  

      As a courtesy, please wait 48 hours (2 days) until contacting your moderator about your message not showing up.  Messages will usually show up faster than that. 
  3. “Why wasn’t my post approved?”
    1. Your post could have been deleted for violating any of the rules in the Announcements section:

§   No last names, schools or cities (states are okay); • age/grade is okay but no birthdays;

§   No being mean/rude--or cursing;

§   No posting your email address or links to other websites.

  1.  “Can I become a moderator?”
    1. Sorry, no – moderators are always adults that are hired by Scholastic.com.
  2. “How do I report an abusive message?”
    1. There is a drop-down menu Options above each message.  Click on that and choose “Report Abuse to a Moderator”.  You should get a pop-up, and you also have the option of adding a comment.  Let us know why you think the message should be deleted.  Then click the "Notify Moderator" button.
  3. “How do you get promoted to a higher rank?”
    1. The rank is based on a combination of posts, views, logins and minutes online. You have to meet the requirements for each category before you are promoted to the next level. Here are the levels:

      New to the Community
      Rookie Visitor
      Visitor
      Regular visitor
      Frequent Visitor
      Contributor
      Regular Contributor
      Frequent contributor
      Superior contributor
      Community leader--this one is super hard to get to because you have to have a message rating of 4!
  4. “How do I change my icon?”
    1. Click on the “My Icon” link at the very top of the page and you’ll see all the different options.
  5. "How can I edit my profile?"
    1. Profiles are not editable because we can’t share too much personal information on these boards.  It's really important to us that these boards remain safe for everyone!
  6. “How do you change the font color and style on here?"
    1. Go to 'graphical editor' to the right of the 'submit post' button.
      Note: The ‘graphical editor’ only shows up if you are using Internet Explorer as your web browser.

      For smileys, use the graphical editor, or you can do these shortcuts, just delete the space in between:

To Zanopotato,
 
You can tell me how to edit your post, and I can do it for you.  I can also delete a post from you and then you can re-write it. 
 
I don't think you can change the rating.

On the Reading Buzz, do we have to talk about a specific thing? Or do we have to talk about anything?
 
PS: I know you're not the moderator of reading buzz, but I just want to know.

Hi saveearth29,
 
Once I accept your message, I am the only one who can edit it.  You can certainly send me an e-mail telling me how you want it edited OR I can delete the message and you can write a new one in its place.
 
Regarding your other question, I think there is a reader's forum on the Buzz Boards.  I'm not sure what the guidelines are, so check with the moderator.  Does anyone else know the answer for this??

Hi saveearth29,
 
I'm not sure what happened.  If it contained too much personal info, I may have deleted it.  Otherwise, it may have just been a computer glitch.  Will you re-submit it?
 
Thanks,

Hi MissPie977,
 
Most scientists believe global warming is happening, and the Nobel Peace Prize was just awarded to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Al Gore for their work on spreading the word about man-made climate change (global warming). 
 
There is a lot of scientific evidence to support the existence of global warming.  To learn more about this evidence, you can watch the documentary movie, An Inconvenient Truth or check your library for a good book about global warming such as The Down-to-Earth Guide to Global Warming.
 
Still, lots of people think that global warming doesn't exist.  I hope this message board will help to change of few of those minds.

Hi 3elvis,
 
I guess it depends where you live... Some communities have workers clean the sides of the road to pick up litter.  If it rains, the cigarette butts probably get washed into the storms drains and out to rivers, lakes, etc..

Hi saveearth29,
 
I'm not sure what happened to your message.   There may have been a technical problem somewhere.  If you gave out too much personal information or if you didn't follow message board rules, then it was probably deleted.
 
Try posting your message again!

Send your poll to me in a post.  I will put it in the "Polls" section as soon as possible.  There are several people waiting to have their polls posted, so you may need to be patient.

You said ages were okay but no birthdays. If you tell them your age they can just figure out what year you were born and if they take all the time to do the math they could find what month and what day you were born in. So why do we have that rule?

Hi Miss Fabulous,
 
I'm not sure how you could calculate a person's birth month or date just by knowing that person's age.  I'm 36 years old... You can probably figure out my birth year, but can you figure out my birthday?

In the area above where you write your post, look for "Font Name" and "Font Size."  Just to the right is a capital "A" with a red underline.  Click on these to change your font.  You need to highlight the text you want to change OR choose the new font & color before you begin typing.

I believe polar bears are only in the Arctic/North Pole, and penguins are only in Antarctica.
 
I hope it isn't too late- That's why we are talking about global warming and trying to change our habits.

Hi TechnologyGirl,
 
I moderate this board (Save the Planet), and I just started to moderate the Allie Finkle boards.  These are much smaller boards than Buzz Boards or Harry Potter, so I can do more than one.

Hi! Thanks for posting my topic Global Warming: Fact or Myth. I see all of these boards about the terrors of global warming and how to stop it, but me and my family (and probably many other kids and families) firmly don't believe in it. Keep doing a great job as a moderator!

Hi Elise! I was wondering if you had any reccomendations for websites or movies about global warming. And also, how long does it take for you to approve messages? I just started posting so I don't know much about the message boards and the Frequently Asked Questions helped a lot. Thanks!

Hi eco-friendlygirl96,
 
If you go to The Down-to-Earth Guide to Global Warming website, there are links to other global warming websites and lots of other cool stuff:
 
 
You already mentioned An Inconvenient Truth in another post, so I know you know about that movie.  I saw a movie a few months back called Arctic Tale.  It was about polar wildlife, and it really illustrated what global warming is doing those animals.
 
As for the question about messages, it depends how many messages there are.  Usually it takes me close to an hour... Sometimes less, sometimes more.  Lots of kids ask me questions about global warming, science, nature, etc..., so sometimes I have to do a little research, and that takes time.  I don't mind that, though.  I'm learning a lot. :smileyvery-happy:
 
Hope that helps!  Welcome to the board!
 
Elise

oh......... I forgot about the whole "2 boards" thing. My bad. (slang) I guess it's ok 2 moderate two boards but how can u moderate both boards (Save the Planet), and the Allie Finkle boards at the same time? How can you moderate those boards at the same time after a lot of messages are replied to with other messages?

I sit down at the computer once a day, and I read through all the messages until I'm done.  I start with the Save the Planet board, and then I move to Allie Finkle.

What I meant was that the computer had an error or somehow the message you tried to post got lost before I saw it.

Hey Elise,
When I  1hit  the "spell check" red mark  it lists "Elsie" and another name like "Eloise" but you're name is Elise. It also lists stuff like "elks" and else. I have to hit "Ignore All" everytime but why can't you just put "Add to Dictionary" so it'll be in there? Do I have to hit "Ignore All" everytime when I'm writing your name? If I do, I am starting to get annoyed..... or not but everytime I hit it, it's not listed as correct. Can you please do something about this?

I know, it really is a headache!  Scholastic is supposed to be working on a way to let kids have passwords, but I don't know when that will happen.
 
I hope you don't have to change your username again! :robotsad:

Okay, I really don't know the exact numbers, but I know it is a combination of minutes on line, messages read, and messages you write.  You've been on quite a bit, so I think it won't take long to get to the next level. :robothappy:

Hi Will,

Before you click on the blue "submit post" button, you can use the spell-check.  It is the red checkmark in the upper right corner the grey box.

I'm sorry- It would take too long for me to correct spelling, but I'll try to help you out if I see a really confusing word.

Hey Elise,
I  skipped most of the "Vistor" ranks and became "Regular Vistor", I think. Or was it Vistor? Well, sooner or later, I was a contributor. But, how many times to be logged on to be a community leader? That's what I want to know, if u know what I mean.

Hi Technology Girl,
 
I don't know the numbers, but I think it is really hard to become a Community Leader... I haven't seen too many (if any).
