questions about this board

  1. I have a few questions that maybe some of you can help me out with.
    First, I was just looking today for the "rules" of the board...ya know, with all the controversy lately over profanity and what-not. Where are they located?

    2. When I log in, I click on the "view new posts". But usualy there are way too many to read at one sitting. I dont log out, but I do get offline. When I get back on, they are no longer considered unread I guess, because I might only have a few "new posts" to view. How do I keep the posts "new"?? Or do I just have to keep going through all the forums to read that days threads?(which has been a big pain)

    3.Is there a thread that tells us all the small things like posting attachments, quotes, changing pic size for avatars, etc?

    Thanks in advance!!!:kiss

    If you log onto "Today's Active Threads," Shandy, you'll see all the new posts on all the discussions. I bookmarked the page, so that's where I go every time I log on, and I don't usually have to do the name/password thing that way.

    (then again, I would log off and on if I was not at home )

    Sleepyeyes and Karen, thanks for your replies...I will remember that "todays active threads" idea...as for the faq's it wasn't exactly what I was looking for, but I did read over everything and found some things I wasn't aware of! Thanks again!

    I understand what you're saying about the new threads thing.

    "Today's Active Threads" is set as my homepage too. SOmetimes (lawdy imagine) I'll immediately click another link, or look for something else. But when I come back here, there are no new threads. It's like it marks them automatically for me?

    I just keep an eye on the date and time (round about) on the last reply of the posts, and I can figure it out. But it's not a terribly big deal, since I usually always stop here first.
