    You are welcome
    And as a recent new member myself
    You are limited to a set amount
    Of posts/replies per day
    Already forgot how many and for
    How long
    Was 15 a day for 3 months or was it
    1 month lol my
    Memory is shot lately
    But they altered it a little for me
    Which was really good of them
    So post /reply carefully
    It's a rolling reset
    Ie not at say midnight
    It's 24 hours from each post
    Once you hit the daily limit
    So in this thread
    If you have further questions /replies
    If you edit your original post /last post
    It won't count towards your
    Limit
    Reason for limit is to stop new
    Members bot spamming
    The forums
    Edit
    It will not notify us if you edit don't think
    But easy enough to look at the
    Thread every now and then

    youre welcome mate
    and i see you already managed multi quotes
    thats great as can comment a lot of times in a thread but still get counted as 1 post
    its very frustrating once that
    you reached your daily limit keeps popping up
    my dyslexia means trying to multi quote on my phone is just
    a shambles lol
    on the pc i can just about manage it almost
    but think they realised i am not just trying to bump my post count up
    been pretty understanding about it
    they showed me how to put it on my signature
    so people dont keep making poetry cracks about my text spacing
    its not as bad on the pc
    but on my phone is worse

    Hee hee!!

    I'm useless with teknikal stuff and have to get my lad to come and sort my pc and phone out when i've pressed things I shouldn't have!!, They're like black arts to me!!

    I like things that I can see how they work and get it in my tiny brain!! :eek::D:D:D

    Swapping suspension and doing brakes and stuff is easy (Apart from my knees being bad!!) but putting computers right after i've messed them up blows fuses in me bonce!! :D

    I swapped the shockers on my old car whilst still having clips in from a knee replacement!!

    By the way, Is there a limit on how many pics can be attached? :confused:


    Cheers, John :)

    You're doing fine so far
    Multi quotes
    And managed to get
    Your images to show instead of
    Just a link like lot of people do
    No idea of image amount limit in one post if there's one
    Me luckily I can manage practical
    Stuff
    Might not always be the prettiest
    But it will work
    But am also good at theory stuff
    As for pcs
    I run rings round the kids
    And grand kids lol
    They know they can't baffle me
    With science :D

    Edit
    It may be 20 days or 100 posts
    Before your 15 posts a day limit gets
    Lifted
    Though don't quote me on that lol
