Hey everybody((((waving)))))...good to see everyone. don't know what happened to my first post but thought I'd try again to say hello.

Hey Fab
Does the insert media button on the message toolbar not work for you? 

It only likes Internet Explorer. 

Technology sucks.

Err hello.. I have joined here to offer a little advice if I can at any time. I have been on LiveCloud and before that Groupee for a couple of years and know a few things. You are all asking the same questions and having the same problems that we all experienced when Livecloud became err live (shrugs).

In the LiveCloud support forums there are a lot of questions and answers. Take some time to read them.

If I may I will try to embed a video as a test. I will of course delete it after a while.

If you can see this that all well and good. I find that using Google Chrome works best with this medium. The insert media works just about every time for You Tube video's but you may have a problem inserting personal video  if you do not have a VIP subscription.
Hi there, James!

Yeah ... I know that it looks like the blind-leading-the-blind here ... and it is ... ... but, we somehow usually find our way to where we're going!    I'm sure that the support forum will be very useful!  I'll be sure to check it out!  Most of us will just have to click our way into figuring out how things work around here.  And it'll probably take some time.

With the problem I had with embedding, I found out that it works perfectly well if I'm using Internet Explorer for a browser .... but, I'm a Firefox user ... and for some reason that feature doesn't work with Firefox!    That's not just a LiveCloud thing, though ... I periodically run into that problem with other softwares and programs.

I do like the video you posted, though, as a test!    Oh!  And welcome to the board!
As it's a shared site the answer is no. I suppose you could make a request to the administrators to lighten the bubbles or deepen the text. Only other way would be to change the theme all together
Was the "People of Color" thread closed?  Or is it just my PC acting weird?

and how come my "insert/edit link" icon is grayed out?
Oh and how do we get this site listed on the "blog roll" of other related sites?  There are at least 4 sites that i've visited where our link would be appropriate.
Jim, it seems to work fine for me.
There is no function to insert images now Looks like the recent upgrade has downgraded us all
