I have to put the photos in an answer, so have patience for a moment, hee hee hee. I see a couple newbies posting in the Public category, wanted to help them find the right place. If you're not finding that freebie tab, you're missing all the reminders and posts, eeekkkk. So here's your photo tutorial.

Hugs, Marji

Thanks for the reminder! let's hope the new folks see it and the oldies remember it! lol
I've posted in the wrong spot before and found you can't go back and get it so folks, double check before you hit submit.
Thanks Marji!

I thought I'll bring this up again because it still seems to be hard to find the freebietab.hope it works.

by leenova54 13 Sep 2010

Thank you for bringing this up to us, I am a guilty party for last week! Now that I know, if only I could remember to click on it and see the freebies!

by starlet2653 13 Sep 2010

Soooo kind of you!!!

Thank you

by capoodle 19 Aug 2010

I have also noticed in the last couple weeks the mix ups of posting in the wrong tabs. I'm glad you noticed. Have also found that it just isn't the newer members. Maybe someone could put a big caution above the tabs that if you post in the wrong section your post will be deleted. Thank You...

Of course this is old information being brought up and perhaps the 'oldies' should take notice also???
Is there a tutorial for 'How to post Personal information" in "Personal"? Or "How to post "Advertising in "Bookmarks" and not in "Projects".

I don't care how many tutorials are posted for newbies or oldies. The issue will continue to make things unpleasant unless a more organized Forum is set into place. Even then, People will still "Post in the wrong Section".

Why can't people just enjoy what is available.

Sorry. I've posted before and for some reason I clicked on the wrong tab...20 lashes with a wet noodle for me. I will try to be more careful.

by amarulli 07 Mar 2010

Thanks for explaining, sometimes it´s a bit hard to find the correct way on a new platform to work with. And for me even harder, because I´m already not really firm on working with internet. A long time I refused to use it at all - shame on me, but now I´m glad I started to use it - for this reason I found already a lot of great stuff and inspiration for my crafting.
Please be forgiving to me ...

Bringing this back to the top again. Some folks just aren't getting it, that freebies belong under the freebie tab, not in the public forum. If you are having trouble with it, and this photo explanation isn't working for you, please contact me and I'll try to walk you thru it, explain it another way, whatever helps. Veronika, the website owner, has taken the trouble to set up the different tabs, it would be nice if they were used properly, and a help to everyone who uses the forums. Thanks loads, and hugs to you, Marji

I'm bringing this back up to the top, for newbies to the site. We seem to have a lot of freebie posts in the Public category lately. Please take time to read and use this information, ok? Veronika went to a lot of trouble and expense to make that Freebie tab, we need to be using it. I know we all make mistakes once in a while, that's understandable, no problem. But there have been an awful lot of "mistakes" lately, can we pay a bit more attention? Thanks bunches, hugs, Marji

by marjialexa Moderator 30 Aug 2009

ttt for newbies, and those having problems finding how to post. If you need more help, just let me know, be glad to try and explain another way. Hugs, Marji

Thank you Marji, I didn't know the new tab until read your post, you are a great teacher.

by claudenicolas 15 Aug 2009

Thank you for those explanations

by babsie 15 Aug 2009

Thanks, now I know why mine kept going to the wrong place although I did click the freebie at the bottom left. I opened Ask the Community and not the one under freebie. Shame u're having a hard time with us, but I'm sure this is going to do the trick. Hugs for u

Hey, Babsie, no problem, we all need some kind of directions, or we won't know how to do anything. I'm glad these helped you to 'see' it. Hugs, Marji

by clawton 15 Aug 2009

Just back after 3 weeks. Looks like a nice feature. Haven't checked it out yet. thanks

by kanaren 15 Aug 2009

I am a member of cute and have been for some time. I hesitate to post because someone is often correcting or annoyed at others postings. I love the freebies postings as well as all the other postings (except the snarky ones). Is there a way to see ALL postings at once without having to go to each section?
I will go back to my corner now and wait for a response. Thanks. Karen

mops by mops 15 Aug 2009

I am afraid the answer is no. The four sections are seperate. And only in 'public' you have the choice to read 'all' - which is the default setting - or use the tags to read specific subjects.

kanaren by kanaren 15 Aug 2009

Thanks for letting me know. Karen

marymoore by marymoore 15 Aug 2009

karen now u should come out more i see u have been a member since 2006 and this is really the first time i seen u

ruthie by ruthie 16 Aug 2009

kanaren, welcome to our Cute community. Please don't be afraid to post, the majority of us here are the friendliest people on earth, and we would love to hear from you. There have been a few hiccups recently, but things seem to be sorted. We're not a bunch of ogres, and if someone does have to correct you, I think you'll find that it will be done in a loving way. We only correct people if it's necessary. And if we correct you, and you take notice of what we say, that will be the end of the matter and everything will be fine. Stay with us sweetie, love and hugs for you, we'd love to have you here.

by dkjack 14 Aug 2009

Thank Marji. I copy and paste tips and your tutorials into a word document for later reference. If I pull on the handle of your pictures, they enlarge and are more readable. :)

by marymoore 14 Aug 2009

oh thank u so much for this marji

by bevintex 14 Aug 2009

Thanks for all you do for us. Now I just need to find a great freebie!

by debleerl 14 Aug 2009

I just love the new freebies tab! Now I can stop in and quickly check the chat whithout having to go through all the freebies. Then when I have more time, I can check out what's new in the freebies.

Thank you, to all that worked on this improvement to the site!!!

Don't worry, not a problem. There are sure sometimes I look at something and don't 'get' it, either. Everything takes some learning and getting used to. Hugs, Marji

by marjialexa Moderator 14 Aug 2009

Ok, the first picture is of the posts under the Public tab. The tabs are at the top of the postings. The one you're in will be white, the others kind of greyed. The system automatically takes you to Public when you hit the Community link at the top of the page. What you want to do is put your pointer on the second tab, the one indicated by the arrow. The pointer will turn to a hand, and you click that tab. You will then see the posts under freebies. That's the second picture. See how the Freebie tab is now white, and the rest are greyed? When you're in that section, you'll see all the freebie posts, just go to the green arrow, "start a new topic", just as you always do, and make your post. If you are still having trouble, please don't hesitate to ask, I'll try to explain it a different way. I hope these screen shots are large enough to see, they're kind of blurry. Hugs, Marji

shirlener88 by shirlener88 14 Aug 2009

great job! now also remember that you can click on these pictures to make them larger to read better.

marjialexa by marjialexa 14 Aug 2009

Oh, Shirlene, I didn't realize these photos would enlarge, too! I thought it was just the ones in Projects. Thanks for the info!! Hugs, Marji
