I guess this is meant for people who are facing problems uploading attachments but yeah, even I am confused.

If you don't want to, you are under no obligation to reply to his PM's or entertain him on a personal level just because you are a moderator. If you are troubled by his PM's, bring this up with a super-mod or administrator as PM's with objectionable contents fall under the rules of infrationable offense.

We already have a Daniweb Community Feedback forum for such kind of things; ask him to bring up the issue here.

If people are too stupid to know that the paperclip is used for attachments, they have no business on a 'IT Discussion Community' IMO.

What makes you think people will automatically know what that paper clip is for? I didn't know what it was for until just now when I read your post because I always scrolled down and hit the "Manage Attachments" button.

Perhaps I was a bit quick on the draw, but the paperclip icon is a pretty standard icon nowadays. Not only by Microsoft standards, but programs like Thunderbird also use it. So I thought it was accepted as a standard like the "open file" icon etc. I was obviously mistaken.

I've had one problem, and it was a server time out, otherwise no problems :)

I see some of the strangest icons that people think I will know what they mean (or even that they are icons):

- A man 's head on the menu bar
- A globe that looks like it is on roller skates
- A white cross on a red background
- A green hand holding up a building
- Two A s and an X overlapped
- An envelope with a lightning bolt on it
- A smiley face that is spinning
- A picture of a rocket ship from the 1950s
- A finger pointing at a document
- A necktie with a "no" circle on it
- A picture of a clown
- A lighthouse
- A squeeze bulb horn
- A duck in a raincoat
