For example I see guys asking mods to correct errors in thread title but you can do it your self just hit edit > advanced and see the title ready for you to edit.

One I'd like to know is how posters quote several different posts in one post so to respond to each quote individually.

best way to find old posts and threads, standard search often comes up empty.

Just right click on the quote button and open in its own window. Then just cut and paste the different quotes into one post.

Thats why you right click to open multiple posts. You can cut and paste as many as you want into one post.

Sunny but a little hot and humid cause of the recent rain

Mane tip one: If you find news and it is more than 4 hours after it broke, there is a thread made for it already.

Mane tip two: There is a page two of the threads in the forum discussion. Click over there sometimes. There are some great threads that get buried and you probably will find that piece of news you thought you broke.

Mane tip three: If the information supplements an existing thread, go ahead and bump it. If the information you want to post is completely new, don't bump it in an old thread that features the same content. NEVER use an old thread that has an old date attached to it to add new information. This will confuse BroncoBuff into thinking that thread from the beginning is brand new and he won't understand until page five.

Mane tip four: Any thread started by Bob is really an opportunity to discuss the types of food you have eaten or plan on eating.

My tip is to absolutely do drink and post. Please try to get on here while you can still kind of type, like Mock. It's great fun for everyone. Lay off the crack pipe though.

Not if you do it with spacing. I find it works great. Here's an example:

Mane tip one: If you find news and it is more than 4 hours after it broke, there is a thread made for it already.

Mane tip two: There is a page two of the threads in the forum discussion. Click over there sometimes. There are some great threads that get buried and you probably will find that piece of news you thought you broke.

Mane tip three: If the information supplements an existing thread, go ahead and bump it. If the information you want to post is completely new, don't bump it in an old thread that features the same content. NEVER use an old thread that has an old date attached to it to add new information. This will confuse BroncoBuff into thinking that thread from the beginning is brand new and he won't understand until page five.

Mane tip four: Any thread started by Bob is really an opportunity to discuss the types of food you have eaten or plan on eating.

You sir, are a coward and a thief. I challenge you to a duel at dawn.

Half the time people post as if they're drunk anyways.

For example I see guys asking mods to correct errors in thread title but you can do it your self just hit edit > advanced and see the title ready for you to edit.

Does anyone else have a hell of a lot of problems with the search function? I can't get it to work at all(I'm on firefox).

I've seen other vbulletin boards with a multiple quote option. Down by the quote button there is a + button, just click on as many '+'s as you want and the final one click quote and they are all in there.

TJ?

I see people posting duplicate threads and asking the mods to delete when they can do it themselves.

-Put ApaOps on ignore. Any post by him can only have one of two results:

1. ruin your computer.

2. get everyone kicked out of training camp

MUCH truth in this move. Someone over OMane weekend was trying to convince me (I think it was BroncoBuff) that using the ignore feature was equivilant to being a cop out. Oh how wrong he is in that.

Ignoring people is not censorship Buff.

Its a choice.

Like muting commercials.

Or changing the channel when that socialist pig Obama comes on TV.

An example of censorship is "**** you" where the word "****" is censored out by the filters.

Or banning a member for any reason.

These are acceptable forms of censorship on a public "family-centric" message board.

You're right, I just can't do it. I tried once, with wolf745 I think, but I kept wondering wtf that mental patient was gurgling, so I would click "show posts."

I can't do Ignore. Therefore, that feature should be available to no one.
