    Hi Everyone!

    Been a lurker in the Paris boards for a while now and thought I would finally register on this fantastic site. Cannot wait for my third trip to Paris in December :hyper:

    I'm a newbie here and just wanted to say a quick hello!
    I stumbled across these boards for the first time a few weeks ago while browsing the web looking for new WDW trip ideas.

    I currently am planning my 19th trip for this August. After having been there so many time already, I'm looking for new ideas or little hidden gems I might have over looked during previous visits. So far, these boards have been very helpful in the planning process!

    So..um. Hello?

    Just recently discovered this site while researching for our 4-year old's first trip to WDW in October. There is an amazing amount of information and I look forward to learning more.

    Just a few questions!!

    well first of all, my mom goes onto disboards and she is travelmel. i was named after her. :goodvibes so i know how to do most of this whole chat thing. and with that, my first day of disboards will begin! :cool1:
    anyways back to the subject. i heard that the CHAT is back, so i decided to try it out. the chat site is great; i love IM! but im not sure how to do friend requests and messaging, and i was wondering if anyone could answer me on this one.

    :welcome:

    First of all, you haven't completed your registration yet. Make sure you got an email from us and that you click on the link to confirm or you won't be able to fully participate in our boards. If you have a problem we have a thread you can read and post on to help you out.

    As for Chat, I actually have no idea how all that works (I am an old foogy!), but I don't think that can do friend requests and messaging through our Chat system. The Chat room is only open during certain times, when a moderated Chat is scheduled. But since I am not sure I would suggest you ask on our Tech Support Board at the bottom of the main page. But you will have to complete your registration before you can post there.

    Check your spam/junk mail box. Often the email ends up there.

    You have to confirm your registration first. Right now all you can do is post on this board, and read only on all the other boards. Until you are "Earning Your Ears" by confirming your registration you can't do much else.

    After posting on a thread I can never find the thread again. How do I view my posts?

    I am thinking it is probably so obvious, but I just can't see it.:badpc:

    You need to subscribe to the threads you post on. You can do that manually with each post, or you can set your User CP so you are automatically subscribed (I suggest this). Take a look at our FAQ thread and there are instructions there.


    For your past posts that you aren't subscribed to, right click on your username in your above post. Then select the option to find all posts. Anything posted within the last few days won't show up yet but you shoud find everything else.

    You can go to your account and accept emails, you can fing your thread there or do a search for the kind of thread that you posted on, and search it that way as well. Just remember to look at what number you are on the thread and that will definitely help you......Welcome to DIS Boards..

    Greetings all. New to the board. My hubby and I have had annual passes to WDW for about 6 years now, and we never get tired of going to see the Mouse. :) Love Star Wars Weekends at Hollywood Studios and Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (we went as Princess Leia and Obi-Wan Kenobi last year...yeah, I'm a little Star Wars obsessed. ;) ). See ya real soon!

    For our DIS chat rooms the Main Room is the only one available and it is only open during our scheduled chat times for On Topic, Moderated discussion. The schedule is listed in the Thread at the top of the page.
