Larry's how to build an Electrolysis set up

 



Profiles:

Profiles are now required to post on all Forums, in order to post on these forums you must have built a profile with a valid email address. This profile will be pass worded to prevent others posting as you and so you wont lose your user name to someone else who creates a profile with your name before you have.

  Once you  build a profile it must then be used on all forums. You only need one profile that will work on all forums, it will only show your profile in the list profiles on forums you have an active post on.

You Must post using the exact sure name and password in your profile on all forums, all punctuation counts and is also case sensitive on passwords. If you receive a password in all capitols that's the way it must be entered. you may

Profiles are based on email addresses. The Depot will only allow one user profile per email address.

The My profile link is on every forum in the navigator bar where the post a message link is.

  A password will be sent to the email address you listed in the profile after you create your profile.

Please be sure you allow email from thetreasuredepot.com in your spam filters or you may not receive it.

You can and should change this password to something you can remember by using the my profile link which will only appear for those that have already created a profile and entering the password assigned in the box provided, then entering your new password in the 2 new password box's  provided. I highly recommend this, as the password sent by the depot is all capitols and a bunch of garbled letters.. Its simple to change if you do it before losing it, and make it something simple you can remember

If you chage your email address, please be sure to edit your profile to reflect the change or people will not be able to send email from forums. Also you will be unable to change or reset passwords if email has changed

Email addresses are hidden from view on forums but will use the email in your profile to allow send mail 

   If you lose your password use the forgot password link on any forum to reset it,  you will get a confirmation email that you must click the validation link to reset password within 1 hour

Your profile will not appear in the profile list until you make a post on that particular forum.

If attempting to create a profile and its saying profile already exists, please read the entire error page, it will say profile is in use by someone else or you already have a profile with your email address under a different user name, and will tell you what name that email is assigned to.. you just need to reset password.. see above

If you are trying to create one that someone else has already used ( in that case try using another name), or you previously posted on a forum using a password or previously created a profile. In the latter case you will need your password reset to post,  see above.

Passwords

When you create a profile on any of the forums a password will be emailed to the email address you put in your profile, so make sure you check your spam folders if you don't receive it within 5 minutes.
When you receive your first password it will generally be in all capitol letters, the passwords are case sensitive and must be entered exactly as sent. You can change you password to what ever you want by editing your profile, entering the sent password in the box provided and entering your new one twice in the two (new) boxes provided in the form. When you make your first post be sure to click save password so it will be saved in your cookies that way you will not have to enter it with each post. Once you create a profile no-one will be able to post using your name as saved without that password.

 Do Not use password or form  managers on any browser, if your browser asks if you would like to save your password for this site, reply never for this site,  as it will cause you problems. If you already replied yes and popups are appearing then you need to delete any references to the depot in your password manager. You can save your password in your cookie files by simply checking the save password box when you make a post.

Any other issues please email the web master using the trouble report link on forum with the exact user name you post with.

Banned IP's If you are getting messages you are banned from posting or viewing the forums, and feel you have done nothing to be on the banned list, you are probably the victim of having the same ISP as someone who has  been  banned.
To get off the banned list you must Email  Larry Cissna

Page loading problems:

If you are experiencing problems with loading pages or not being able to access certain pages please try the following tip before e-mailing me with your problem. I get a lot of mail every week especially from AOL users and this method fixes the problem 99% of the time. With the amount of updating we do on this site especially on the find of the month page, it is often necessary to clear your browser cache to get the a fresh download of the latest pages. 

First try this: 

Hold down the "shift" key on your keyboard and while you are still holding it down click "refresh" or "reload" on your browser tool bar. This will force a fresh download from the server instead of using your cached pages that may not be updated with the latest additions.

 If that fails you can try to clear your cache. You will not loose any cookies or important files by clearing your cache but it will force a fresh download for any new pages you go to after that.
 

Clearing Browser Cache

To Clear Cache, do a google search on clearing cache from the specific browser your using, Internet Expolrer, Firefox, Opera etc etc


Cookies:

Its possible that at times your cookies may get corrupted, causing strange errors, like pre loading the wrong 
passwords or email address etc. To clear the cookies, use the help function of the browser you are using and search on cookies to and find out how to delete them. Or do a google search
