    Default Yes I am... having trouble using the forum

    Please make allowances, I'm getting a bit thick as I get more ancient - but I don't seem to find where I should post.
    For example I just took a pic of a nice plant ( maybe 1500 flowers ? - sounds great ? Actually it's a Dendrochilum,so not quite that magnificent , and I counted 75 flowers on one spike, and 20 spikes ) . And I thought I'd show it and add a few words . But where ? The last time I tried to do this, the pics didn't appear, and it went in the introduce myself thread anyway - and I can't keep on introducing myself every time I have a pic...

    Question

    Yes I seem to be out of the loop. I got my reply by email and clicked on it. I then when to the introduction board (right word?) and made a large introduction about 2 or more hours ago and don't know if I'm being impatient or not but I have been looking for it to come up on the sight, there have been others come up since, dores someone have to aprove the message first?.... Now when I send you this how will I know if you got it or not?
