    Inputting your age is a requirement of the forum. I have switched off the age display on posts, but it is used to send birthday greetings and to help create more of a community atmosphere.

    I would recommend inputting your real birthdate to allow the system to work correctly.

    :wink:
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    Re: Questions from a newbie ;-)

    Is it considered kosher to point out mistakes such as homophone confusion, here for hear, for example?

    Still not clear how I go about changing my password! Not impressed with reply times either - question posted on the 2nd July, answer took 10 days! Sorry but I'll be looking elsewhere for a more user friendly site, yours is far too frustratingly unclear!

    Re: Questions from a newbie ;-)

    I'd suggest that next time you start a new thread with your question. It will be noticed faster that way.
