Re: [z_scale] Re: Time to vote!
- Jeffery, I would like to participate but unfortunately the process of
becoming a member is too complicated for this old codger. My efforts to
correct my earlier "mistakes" at sign in, rejoin.... just gives more of the
same oops you are not a member. I have tried to stat over but I can't
change my e-mail address. I'm really disappointed because I wade thru
countless pointless messages daily, deleting as I go, Then when something
of interest pops up.............oops you are not a member. Oh well, I'll
get one of my grand kids to straighten it out one of these days. Grandpa

- Hi Grandpa Dave,
Yes, Yahoogroups can be frustrating...that being said, I suspect
that your problem is related to the log-in process.
You are a member of Z_Scale so you don't have to reregister. If
you do not have access to the poll or other member only
functions, it is because you have not signed in. If you look at the
upper right hand corner of the screen (just under the Yahoo
banner ad), you'll see a link called "Sign In" or "Sign Out" if a
different user is already signed in. Look at the line just above the
"Z_SCale - The Z scale 1:220 Model Trains Forum". It should
say Welcome, davendiana. If it says Guest then you have to
log-in. If it says someone else's ID then you need to "Sign Out"
and then "Sign In" under your user ID. Whew! I have to do this
regularly since my wife is always logging on to other groups. ;-)
Click on the "Sign In" link and you'll be asked for your Yahoo ID
and your password. Your ID is davendiana but only you know
Once you have signed in, Yahoogroups will either display the
screen that you were denied access to or it will present a list of
your active Yahoogroups. In the latter case, click on Z_Scale and
you'll have access to all the functions of the group.
This should solve the problem, I hope anyway. As I said, you are
certainly a member, you probably just need to sign-in.
Good luck and thanks for pointing out the problem. I hope that I
have been of some help.
