New to the site or haven't figured it all out? Welcome, welcome, welcome! We are growing and changing day by day. So we appreciate you sticking with us as we ourselves learn to navigate all of the features here. First - check out the video I did that gives you a tour of some of the key features of the website.
It is super important that you take a moment when you sign up for site membership that you take a second to adjust your notification. Follow this link to do that. You simply want to turn off your email notifications for the groups and forums. We can sometimes generate 20-40 emails in a day from activity on the site. The default setting is automatically set to send you emails for ALL activity at VickyandChuck.com's groups and forum. We cannot change that but you can. It is super easy. If you aren't a member yet - then once you become member - you can go to the Members Only Page and click on Settings to adjust your personal notifications. You will slide the bar at each email notification to specifications you want. We ask that you not unsubscribe to emails from our emails sent or newsletter - as that does NOT affect group notifications or forum activity. That will instead unsubscribe you from The Vine, our monthly newsletter. If you need help - reach out to me at admin@VickyAndChuck.com.
Thank you for your patience. We are aware that some of you keep being told that you need to JOIN groups even after you become a member. This is an issue with our website platform. We are working with them to resolve it. We currently have two work arounds. First - ensure you are LOGGED IN to the site. Do NOT click on links from emails. Come directly to www.VickyAndChuck.com and login right under the header. Once you do that you should be able to go to the GROUPS page or the FENCE POST FORUM and access it. If that doesn't work - try to reset your password or email me at Admin@VickyAndChuck.com and I will generate an email via wix to send you are password reset.
This is your community!
Please know that this is YOUR community. Please take a tour with me (Suzanne) in my video above and explore on your own. You can personalize your member description/about page. You can put your own pictures for your profile or background. You can even share links to your blog, youtube channel or whatever you feel led to share. We want to know you too. Also - PLEASE use a first name. That helps everyone get to know one another. We also are asking that you list if you are male or female if you are participating in groups. You will receive a badge which will then give you access to certain groups that are designated either male or female. Some groups are open to everyone but some are specific. Also - feel free to upload media to your posts and bio.
Upload images or GIFs
Embed videos and music
Customize the look of your media by making it widescreen or small and easily align media inside your posts. If you are in groups - we ask you shrink your picture down so that it doesn't overtake the groups area.
One other things - for the first week of membership - you can only post 5 posts in the groups. It will release after that and we trust you will not overwhelm a group or thread with excessive posts - but you are welcome to share as Holy Spirit ministers.
Hashtag your posts
Love to #hashtag? Good news!
You can add tags (#vacation #dream #summer) throughout your posts to reach more people. Why hashtag? People can use your hashtags to search through content on our blog and in the forum and therefore find the content that matters to them. So go ahead and #hashtag away!
We are SO glad you are joining us. We are all learning at the same time! Let me know if you have any questions! Suzanne (Mrs.Wantland) - Website Admin & Net-casting gal
