What features have you discovered on the board that you think are not generally known?

Post same and lets see how many we can find.

Thanks for the big fat softball. :D

Scrolling over the icon to the left of the thread will tell you how many times you have posted in that thread.

You know you're pretty cool if you find my name in your Friends list.

If you go 'Quick Links' then scroll down to 'P&PG Experience' you can see how bad Tesral is beating you in XP's.

Multiquote: Right side bottom of the message window. Second gadget from the left. click on it in the order you want the posts to be quoted. Then hit the normal reply gadget for the thread. Edit as necessary. It prevents getting "auto merged"

The index to my blog was slipping off the first page, so I went in to edit the page, and under publish status changed "Publish Now" to "Publish On" and set the date to five minutes ago.

I like your character icon, TAROT.

Here's a question where the answer would apply to this thread:

When i submit threads, they show up here(see top/most recent 2):

http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/search.php?searchid=95461

Addendum: Goto my Profile, statistics, then Find all threads started by Thoth-Amon (http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/search.php?do=finduser&u=2428&starteronly=1)

but not here:

http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/search.php?searchid=95463

Addendum: See New Posts (between Events & Search)on the grey bar. The one we all go to to see the threads

Anyone have an explanation? FARCASTER?

I get "Sorry - No matches" for both of those links.

Ah. I have a nearby number when I click the "new posts" link on the home page. (Which says "6" beside it, but when I click the link, only one post appears.)

I added two addendums to my post for clarification. Thanks for pointing it out, Tarot.

You only thought of that because I had to ask you about it!

To glimpse one of Thoth's specializations, one only needs to view my icon pic. Trust me when i say, this IS a 9th level spell. Yeah, drool, all you neophite wannabe wizards and sorcerers. <he he he. laughing Evil'ly while rubbing hands together>

Well, if you started the thread, I think that it would be assumed that you had already read what you posted. New posts is for things that you haven't read yet.

The index to my blog was slipping off the first page, so I went in to edit the page, and under publish status changed "Publish Now" to "Publish On" and set the date to five minutes ago.

In the 'Blog Control Panel' you can 'create custom pages' and it will permanently post your index as a linked page at the side or top of the main page. That way it won't keep slip sliding away. ;) You can also go to 'blog sidebar' and then create a 'custom block' with your index that shows up on the side. Either way should work with a little fiddlin'.

*edit* I did the last option on my own blog page, with your index, so you can see how it looks. I'll take it down tomorrow.

If you go 'Quick Links' then scroll down to 'P&PG Experience' you can see how bad Tesral is beating you in XP's.
You can also find that out by clicking on someone's name. A drop down appears with there relevant stats. Clicking on that stat box also takes you to the P&PG experience page.
