* I CREATED A NEW FORUM CALLED CASINO ROULETTE PROFITS.

* WHEN THE FORUM INITIALLY LAUNCHED THE INFO THAT I TYPED IN FOR THE FORUM DESCRIPTION DISAPPEARED!

* THE WEBTAG IS ROULETTEPROFITS.

* CAN IT BE RESTORED.

MUCH MORE TO FOLLOW,

* THE INFO ON THERE IS INFO THAT I TYPED IN AFTER THE LAUNCH.

* WHILE CREATING THE FORUM I TYPED IN A DETAILED DECRIPTION OF THE FORUM.

* WHAT I TYPED THEN WAS WELLTHOUGHTOUT, AND I THINK IT WOULD ENHANCE THE FORUM.

* NONE OF THAT SCRIPT MADE IT TO THE ACTUAL FORUM.

* IT WAS MUCH BETTER THAN WHAT YOU SEE NOW.

* WHAT HAPPENED?

* CAN T BE RECOVERED?

When creating a free forum the page that you do this at asks for:

1.Forum Name - Something like "The Gardener's Corner" or "Fred's Comic Book Club." This is the text that appears at the top of your forum pages. You can change it at any time.

2. The Webtag - The permanent web address for your forum will be http://forums.delphiforums.com/yourWebtag

3. Description - Describe the kind of forum you're building. This description will appear at the top of your forums and when your forum comes up in the Delphi Forums index and in search results.

4. Category - :Select a Category: How would you categorize your new forum? Don't worry, you can change this later if you change your mind.

Did you think that when you filled out #3 that that was going to show up on your Start Page? If you did...if you can find your forum on the Delphi Forums index you can copy and paste what you want into your Start Page.

ZOO:

* THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.

* I FOUND THE INFO IN MY FORUM CUSTOMIZATION AREA.

* I WAS ABLE TO COPY AND PASTE IT TO AN INTRODUUCTORY MESSAGE, WHERE I THINK IT WILL BE EVEN MORE EFFECTIVE.

* I MISUNDERSTOOD THE PURPOSE OF THE DESCRIPTION THAT I PROVIDED.

What you found is the Start Page edit. It's not the same thing as the Forum description that goes into the Delphi Index.

As to the Index...I found a few of your forums in the Index but not the Casino Profits forum. May take a few messages to generate that.
