    Guys I'm sure your all gonna laugh. Can you tell me what NULL means. I've seen it written everywhere here. I cannot figure out the context. Ha ha

    Zero but in the form of no data, not the value zero. Its a computer/database term.

    If you were to fill out a spec sheet for a new car and didn;t write an entry in a box or didn't tick an option that would be recorded by the system as "NULL"

    Is it because underneath some of the posts here you see "null"?

    I assume it's because people are missing photos or signatures or some such thing.

    Absolutely correct, the backend to this website is a database, it has 3 tiers, Web front end, application alyer and the databse backend. If any fields ar enot filled it is filed in the DB as 'NULL'.
