    One suggestion, a declaration of a petty point of annoyance and one silly question.

    I had been away from the sight most of the winter, no reason in particular, just kinda busy with non hammock related things and the look of the place has really changed. After getting over my initial resistance to change and hatred of new things I've found the changes to be mostly cosmetic. A few changes I've liked and somethings I haven't found or figured out yet. All in all, I think it's pretty good, thanks Mods!

    One suggestion; Of all our new tricks and gizmos, do we have a way to put the little circle behind the number when we're talking in degrees of temperature? Having to write 70F has never set right with me. Even if we had to access the emoticon menu for it, it be worth it.

    A declaration of a petty point of annoyance; Is there any way to turn Tap Talk off on a mobile device. That annoying sigh up banner bugs the $h1+ outta me.

    ... and one silly question. Under our user names and above our avatars is a status box, that says things like, "New Member", "Senior Member" and "Donating Member"and some of them say "Banned". Are those folks truly banned or is it in jest?

    It's nice to be back on the forums, catching up with and meeting new folks. I'm looking forwards to a summer of camping. It's been a long winter!

    Typing the degree symbol depends on the device you're using. For Windows based devices, click HERE for tutorial
    For Macs, it's Shift+Option+8, I think. Let's try: Yep! Also, click HERE for additional codes.

    I can't answer your question about TapaTalk.

    The mods can addressed banning members. I've been banned from another site for lack of activity.

    If they are banned, then that is just what it means. People that spam the forums, or just don't want to follow the Terms of Service are the ones that generally get banned.

    And the "0176" has to be typed on the keypad on the right side on your keyboard, not with the numbers along the top.

    For a degree symbol, I had resorted to inserting it in a Word document and then copying the symbol to my clipboard so I can paste it into posts here and elsewhere. I like the M8 Free Clip program because it lets me copy multiple things either temporarily or saved for future sessions. In my saved column I have both "" and " F."

    Thanks to Pipsissewa for the other methods. I tried ALT 248 and found it works directly in HF posts.

    Chilly again this morning - only 29 F. where I live.

    If you're using an iPhone, go to Settings, Notification Center, and scroll down to Tapatalk. From there you can turn on/off the system notifications. As for an Android device, I'm not sure - I think if you kill the app from running in the background you should be good to go, but I imagine that there is someone here in the HF who has more experience with Android than I do.

    On an iphone the degrees symbol is the 0 (zero) button. Long press it. TaDa
