Quotes! Getting rid of them on my screen
« on: June 04, 2020, 12:07:27 PM »
How do I rid these from my screen? I donít want to post them and then modify them to something else. I feel bad to bother you with such an issue, but it feels like an important one to me. Have as good of a day as you possibly can, and thank you for your time in messing with me.

Iíll give you an example just so that I may rid myself of them.
Itís interesting to me that the companies who had the foresight to team up with other big manufactures really took the market.  Tohatsu built by Nissan, Mercury built by Yamaha, etc.  

I remember when I was buying a twin engine center console ocean boat powered with Suszuki engines, I asked the salesman if they were good engines and he saide, sure, no problems.  I then asked him how they compared to Yamahas, and he gushed that there was no comparison, Yammies were the best, 10 to 1, and this dealership didnít even sell Yamahas.  

I also remember I was being guided in Mobile bay, and the guide said he was a Yamaha man, and the Evirude reps came to his dock and offered all the professional guides a new ETEC Iíd they would run them.  So he got a new engine for free, ran if for about a year, and it died.  So he just put his old Yamaha back on.

I see that while I was typing, I had another post come up and Iím assuming that it was regarding my question, but I donít know how to look at it while Iím in the middle of asking and showing an example. Forgive me if this is rediculous to you. Here I go.

I can't speak for Jeff, but I can't quite figure out what's bugging you.  Maybe elaborate or explain a bit so Jeff (or somebody) can provide feedback.

Iím doing all this on my smartelic phone. I apologize in advance if it seems like Iím being harsh. These are appearing in the lower-left hand corner of my screen, and I canít seem to rid myself of these unless I use them some how. These are in subject matter that I donít know anything about and I am just trying to learn some different stuff about. Iíll try to explain my issues more if I need to. I DONíT want to appear to be the whiney member. Thanks for your time.

I understand. I donít think the thing the thing youíre describing is appearing in your post. Maybe try a screen shot. 

Most use the full website even on mobile device. The mobile version works pretty well, but thereís only so much that can be done. The FF just really needs a bigger screen than a smartphone.  Too much content really to fit nicely on a smartphone. I think it does pretty well with the mobile version - just the nature of the beast. Try switching to the full site and see if you can get rid of the iisue. Youíll have to scroll around a bit, but thatís ok. Yhen swich back to the mobile version to see. Hopefully that will help.

Iíll see what I can do but I am very technologically challenged. Luckily, I do have at least 1 good friend that will let me ďplayĒ on his computer. We will see how it all goes and he could probably teach me a thing or two in exchange for me keeping his chainsaw running top notch. Weíll see. Thanks for the suggestions.     Todd

I donít know how to delete cookies from my smart phone. Like I said, technologically challenged. Please forgive, but thanks. I am just kind of ďfakingĒ this whole thing, especially since this is the only forum that has ever appealed to me enough to join. Like in the few jobs that I have been so kindly to have been a part of, my upper management wanted me to use the computer only, but when they realized just how well I took care of my customers and how many MORE that I brought in with nothing more than word-of-mouth, they left me alone, got me the old school paper tools that I asked for, and my store was in the black in 6 months vs others that were doing wonderful if they were in the black in 1.5 years. Iíll quit my rambling now.

Maybe it will work the way I want it now.  Apple was so kind to not provide areal paper phone manual, but what do I KNOW. We will see. Thanks folks for educating me. Fingers crossed!

You can switch to the full site on your phone. Thereís a button at the bottom that says ďfull siteĒ or something obscure like that. Press that and the full site will appear on your phone. You can switch back and forth as desired. 

I think you can also get on the FF using a telegraph if you pr,efer retro.  :D

Not sure about using pencil and paper. You could try mailing letters to the FF, but itíll probably be a one waystreet. 

This is the only forum Iíve joined too.  That seems about right to me.

Hey , they're just playin'. It's hard to communicate friendly joshing in a post, but this is a close community where good natured kidding is the rule. Think of it as part of being accepted by this diverse group. ;D

Sorry if it offended.  We do like a little good-natured ribbing around here.  

I did put some help in there also.

I suggest you spend a little more time reading and leaning the ebb and flow around here.  Getting your panties knotted up because you may not understand you are being included  is not the road to take.

My apologies. My smart A phone along with other tech issues have been keeping me from logging back on to reply to this. Everything SEEMS to be all good now, but like in life, weíll see. 
Thanks
