Part 1: Questions related to the Program

  • Introduction to the Forum

    This forum is a permanent forum on NDTnet, moderated by Rolf Diederichs. As usual NDTnet's month's issue will focus on our discussion theme, actually it is an Article Discussion Forum, but if you are interested in other nondestructive testing topics, don't hesitate to discuss them in this forum as well.

    This forum is somewhat similar to what we have done in previous workshops by means of an 'Ask the Expert Message Board'. That does not mean that we have no experts anymore, there is still a permanent pool of Corresponding Authors as participants and hopefully continue their excellent contributions. Also many excellent answers are been posted by all participants of this forum - most of the forum participants are experts!

    The discussion procedure will be based on an interactive form - that means readers will fill in their questions or contributions, and readers' posts will be automatically transferred to the Forum page and listed there.
    To make it as convenient as possible for you, the message board will include a mailing list. That means everyone will automatically receive the submitted topic by email. Attachments may be downloaded from the message board but will not be forwarded to the email list.


  • What questions are allowed?
  • All questions which are related to NDT are allowed.
    Please use the Classified Ads Board for themes like For Sell, Jobs, etc.. As well you may check the NDT NewsWeb, the Link to "sci.techniques.testing.nondestructive"


  • What does this Icon mean
  • We've added "profile" icons in the forum in an attempt to compensate for the lack of face to face contact in cyberspace. This icon will appear along with the message of registered users. The link will be also distributed with the message send to the mailing list. Just click on the icon and you will get to the profile of the member. Also special 'Author Profile' icon will be shown; that icon will appear for all NDTnet authors registered to this forum.

  • Why doesn't this workshop operate on a Chat Channel or just the NDT newsgroup?
  • That's a delicate issue, there are pros and cons. Considering the current situation we decided that this program is more suitable for our purposes. Usually questions are answered promptly, within 1-2 days.

    Part 2: Questions related to the message board technique

  • Introduction

    This workshop is based on a Message Board principles from WWWBoard Version 2.0 ALPHA 2. and was modified by NDTnet. Since this is an alpha version, there may well be undiscovered bugs. Please report problems to rd@ndt.net. In order to post a message, you must be using a browser with forms support. We recommend the Netscape Navigator v.3.1 or higher.

  • How do I post a message?

    Go the link Post Message, and fill in your name, e-mail address, the subject, and the message. Then click on the "Post Message" button below the message window to submit the message.

    Finally, HTML commands can be incorporated within the body of a message. If you don't know what these are, don't worry about it.


  • How do I reply to a message?

    Select a message from the forum page you want to reply to, whether to answer an initial message or follow up to someone else's reply, either you want to reply to the initial message or follow up to someone else's reply, simply click on this message. Now the message you want to reply to will appear. Use the form appended to the bottom of the message that you want to reply to - just like it says in How do I post a message?.

    If you don't see your URL links at the bottom of your message, or don't see your message in the message list, it is because your browser is displaying a cached version of the particular page you are looking at. You need to reload the page to see the updated message and/or list.


  • Can I put html tags anywhere in my posts?

    No. You can not use HTML tags in any field except in the body of the message. The maintainer of the script has the option of allowing or disallowing any HTML in the Message part of your posting. If they disallow it, the script will just throw out everything in <>'s. If they allow it, your html markup will appear in the posting. It can't hurt to try.


  • Why are there colons in the message when I try to post a follow up?

    Colons appear in the message dialog box when you try to followup up up on a message to indicate that those lines are quoting the previous document. You can delete all lines, however not the subject title


  • Why didn't my post show up?

    Your post most likely did not show up, because your browser did not reload the page, it simply pulled it out of cache. Please reload your browser and it should then appear.


  • Where can I get the original scripts that this program is based on?

    This program was modifieded for NDTnet by Teut.Net. The original scripts are written in Perl and created by Matt Wright. They are free to anyone who wishes to use them and you can get them as well as other scripts at: http://worldwidemart.com/scripts/.

    Enjoy!
