    Hi and welcome to the forums.

    You will find a lot of useful information on the forums and get to know some great people.

    I tend to post mostly on the supply forum as I am a supply teacher and work in secondary schools and also on the behaviour forum. Work place dilemmas I also find interesting to read and find solutions to problems.

    What subject do you teach and how long have you been teaching?

    Yes, s/he says on another thread that it is her/his birthdate, Lilac, so a good guess there, Lilac!

    Hullo there 25975

    A couple of points of information for you:

    Pre-moderation is used for new posters on certain forums only - the ones where in the past some posters have taken advantage of overnight lack of moderators to play stupid tricks. So if you post on Cookery, it will appear immediately, but on Personal or Opinion it will be held up in the moderation queue.

    The moderation queue means that once your post has been moderated, it is posted. But instead of being posted when moderated, thereby appearing at the top of a page for a new thread, it is posted automatically by the system at the time when you wrote it, and thus may appear several pages back. It is therefore lost to the world and your words of wisdom will never be seen . . . unless someone bothers to look back over the last few pages to note a new thread with no replies. Which nobody ever does, of course!

    The Green Martian avatar that you currently are displaying so proudly can be changed, you know.


    You can add an image to your profile (the site can handle gif and jpg files). This image will appear next to any resources you upload and any messages you post in the TES Community. You can either upload a photograph of your own, or choose an image that represents you, or you could choose a graphic from the TES library.

    If you use an image from elsewhere, you should make sure you have the appropriate permissions to use this image. A photo you have taken yourself of your favourite thing, or your pet, or a lovely view, is fine.

    I suggest that you don't use a photo of yourself, in the same way that we suggest that you don't use your own name as your user name.

    You'll find the Add picture option in your Edit Profile page.

    Hope this has been helpful to a newbie . . .

    Best wishes
