I'm a new member with about 10 posts. I've seen several newer members since joining. It may be a good idea to put a "Welcome!" topic under the General Discussion area so that new members can post up.

Sticky the forum rules, links to the search function, and manuals. The usual "important newbie info".

42 years of never riding ended when I fell in love with Lizzy.

Hello!
I agree!.
I am a member for several days now and I missed a sort of (small) manual with basic explanations, for example: How to reply. Anyway I found it by trying so problem solved but maybe there are other "things" that I do not use now and could be fun.

Question I have for exemple: I live in the Netherlands and my PC is Qwerty. When I write my post or answer in English I have a red symbol under a number of words. How can I remove this.
When I write an email it's logic but in this case I can not find the solution. I sent an attach as an example.

For the rest I am very happy with this forum so I'm not negative, it's just a remark.
Earlier motorcycles:

- Honda CB 750 four K
- Suzuki DR 500 (my first single-cylinder, it was a sign...)
- Honda Transalp
- Honda CMX 500 Rebel

Currently:
- RE 350 classic (the best choise ever made)

       Could it be that your spellcheck thinks those words are missssspelllled ?  :) :)

@Tooseevee: No matter the reply or new topic I always get the red lines under the words. Logic because my spelling must be Dutch. However, I want a possibility to change to English. But, maybe it's not there. That is what I'm trying to find out.
And......my words as far as I am aware of are alright.....thanks to Google translate....... mmmm... to check of course :)

the only bad spelling i see in your sample is "exemple". whatever it is, is flagging perfectly good words like "but" and "and". i suspect you have some other issue (maybe language selection?), but we don't seem to have a problem understanding you.

           Reply & New Topic was a separate subject (& has nothing to do with) from your message about the Red Underlining.

           As far as the red underlining goes, I totally don't understand it because I don't find any misspelled words except maybe the one that was already mentioned. You're doing just fine on the language.

Exemple..... how did I missed that....example of course!!
Thanks a lot to you for helping!

Found the solution! I had to "mark" the text and "right click" on the mouse to have the option (spellingcontrole) "translation check" and then put it on English.

So easy..... if you know the way

Thank you all again!!
