If you have a problem that you need assistance from a moderator or staff, go here: https://www.survivalistboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=53 Although it looks like a public forum, all threads started in this section are visible ONLY to the person starting the thread and to the moderators/staff/administrators.
If you see a post or thread that you think violates a rule just click the red and white triangle at the top right corner of every post. It will send an email to every moderator and it will be dealt with as soon as possible.
If you would rather not see posts from a particular member, you can make them “go away” with a click of a button! Here’s how to work the Ignore feature: Near the top of the page you will see “User CP.” That is your control panel. Click on it to bring a drop-down menu. Look for “Settings and Options.” Then, click on “Edit Ignore List” which will bring up the panel where you can copy and paste or type the exact name of the obnoxious knucklehead into the blank box under the words “Ignore List ... Add a Member to Your List” Then click, “Okay.”
To remove a user from your ignore list, un-check the box associated with their name and click the 'Save Changes' button.
Although you can use our search feature (located at the top of the main page), it is not as powerful as https://www.google.com/ or https://duckduckgo.com/. Here’s how to use the search engines to find all of our threads and posts about any topic of interest:
Just type in the term site:survivalistboards.com into your favorite search engine, followed by the word(s) or phrase of your choice, and bingo! There they are.
Sometimes when old threads are dug up and commented on, fresh eyes get to see them and sometimes new thoughts or personal experiences, or additional cited research/news articles get thrown in.
Or, you may prefer just to start a new thread. Either way works.
I spent a couple years on Whidbey Island but traveled most of the state mainly on foot with a backpack. All that rain keeps the vegetation growing and makes part of the state look like a rain forest. Nice people, but the constant overcast and rain leaves the women kind of pasty faced and they never seem to lose their winter fat.
