New to The Sand Trap? Little Things Members Expect and Ask of Fellow Members

12 posts in this topic

1. Multi-Quote

It grinds people's gears when you respond, minutes apart, to multiple users with multiple posts. This forum has the ability to let you respond to multiple posts inside of one post. It's called multi-quote, and it's useful, and virtually required.

 
Quote

 

Replying with a multi-quotation allows you to respond in line to another poster and include context to your replies or to reply to multiple posters within the same reply.

  1. Navigate to the posts you would like to respond to.
  2. At the bottom of each post, on the left, you will see the "+ Multi" button. Click it (it should change to a check mark) on every post you want to quote.
  3. When you are satisfied with your selections, click the "Quote n posts" button floating in the bottom right corner of your browser window to quote the posts.
  4. You'll be taken to the text editor with the posts you selected quoted.

 

2. Embed Videos

This forum will embed YouTube and Vimeo videos, and we strongly encourage you to embed videos of these types. Just paste the video URL on its own line, press return, and the video will be embedded. Here's a page with more detail and a video on how to embed videos: http://thesandtrap.com/how-to/embed-videos .

3. Search

Please search for an existing topic before starting a new one. Even if a thread is years old, we'd rather you bump the old thread with a new post than to start a new, virtually identical thread. This forum has been around for almost a decade - there are a lot of topics.

4. Set an Avatar

You're sent a PM about this when you sign up. If you don't set one, one will be set for you when you hit between 10-25 posts, typically.

5. Add your Name

Just a suggestion:

Have you thought about adding an automatic multi-quote function if a user posts more than 1 post in a set amount of time?  That would eliminate a lot of the multiple posts without causing an awkward user experience.  I have used forums with this and it's a cool feature.

Not an option on the current platform. Talk to us in a month please.

As promised… this feature now exists.

6. Watch the Line Spacing, Please!
On IPS (the software that runs this site), a single press of the return key starts a new paragraph with a blank line in between. There's almost never any need to press return twice. (Shift-return moves you to the next line if you ever need to make a tighter list with single-line spacing.)

This is a new addition to the list.

@iacas ... I can't get the @ user name function to work like it did on the previous site.  How does this work on this site.

@No Mulligans it works the same way. You type the username, wait a second, and select the username from the menu.

I have problems with this on my computer.  I have many times put the @ symbol and then started typing a name, waited and not had it come up, it can be temperamental.  I just tried it again and it did not work.

Thanks, maybe I just need to wait longer

Did you try it again @No Mulligans

It's been working great for me the last couple weeks. Just make sure to give it a couple seconds after the you type the @ and the username.

Now it worked for me but I didn't do anything different.  Odd.  Will see how it holds up going forward

    • My heated driving range is closing
      About 10 years ago I had a heated range go up literally a half mile from my house. It didnt last 2 years so I feel your pain. Luckily theres one about 35 minutes from where I live now that seems to always be busy. They even have a simulator.
    • The Legendary Callaway Great Big Bertha Tungsten Titanium Irons of 1997
      NOSTALGIA: To buy or not to buy?  That IS the Question... I grew up playing golf.  By age 8 I was pretty much an addict.  At the course, rain or shine, every single day after school in the spring and all summer long.  I would often play with older guys, me being the 4th in a foursome as I often went early (dawn ) and by myself.  The course was in walking distance so I could manage it by myself.  Like a lot of beginners and especially juniors, I had junk clubs.  Wilson Junior 1200s to be exact.  No lessons of any kind just a golf book by Ben Hogan and a lot of hard work and discipline on the range.  I was becoming a good junior golfer by age 11. I could break 85 consistently at my home course (and 90 else where).  Once in a while you would get a group of guys that had brand new equipment.  Personalized Staff bags.  Cigars.  Decked out with Ashworth gear and making wagers with one another for me was a lot of money.  In 1997/1998 a lot of the clubs I saw in their bags were Callaway.  The Drivers.  The Irons.  Ping putters.  I think a lot of guys grab the best gear thinking that status is important and the perceived "better" clubs would equate to "better" scores or they would feel "better" about shooting 100.  I started seeing more and more of these $2,000+ sets of irons: the fabled Callaway Great Big Bertha Tungsten Titanium Irons.  If I was really fortunate, my golf skills and attitude would endear me enough to the rest of the group that they would let me hit a couple balls during/after the round after I showed interest in their equipment.  I was hitting my knockoff driver (The Rogue) about 185 yards at the time.  Take out the "Great Big Bertha" and BOOM 210 yards!  My 7 iron was carrying about 125 yards... with the tungsten titanium it was MUCH longer.  Maybe it was the design/technology.  Maybe it was purely psychological.  Maybe it was luck or all of the above.  Whatever it was, I knew immediately that with these magical clubs in my bag I could take my game to the next level.  Sadly, I never could afford the price tag... until now.  These clubs hold a special place in my heart.  These guys were reluctant to play with the skinny 11 year old kid with crap equipment... I didn't fit the mold of a "good" golfer.  They asked the starter if they could play with some one else because I would "slow them down."  They assumed I was a hacker.  And then I proved them wrong.  I beat the pants off these guys and although it made me happy to see them eat their words, I didn't show it.  I was breaking 85 and they were breaking 100... barely.  Seeing that they underestimated me and then befriend me over the course of 18 holes was special.  It taught me a lot about people, perception, life, and reality.  ***Would you purchase a set of clubs for nostalgia alone?  Would these clubs stack up against Callaway X 20 tour irons (what I have in the bag now)???  Have you ever had a similar experience on the course with new equipment?  What is your favorite iron set of the 90s? 2000s?  What were your first set of clubs?***
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Havnt read lsw yet but its on my list. And while I agree thats not ALWAYS the best strategy, I think thats a great piece of advice. I think I know when Im in trouble and I get discouraged thinking its too late to save my score on that hole. Your strategy changes my mind set and gives me more reason to focus on the next shot so I can limit the damage by not making another mistake. Its between the ears as they say! GREAT tip, thanks!
