    Just a couple of other ideas, and I hope I'm not trying too hard to push my ideas on everyone. I'd like to toss them into the hopper if there's a hopper and see if they appeal to anyone--that is my only reason for posting about them.

    In a couple of other (MS) message boards I know of, the Profile page provides more of an opportunity for each person to disclose personal details. There is a photo album, for instance, and the average number of posts per day is clearly shown.

    Also, in the third line of the bar above the message window when you post, you see a bunch of options that I have a feeling most people never use. With the possible exception of the subscript and superscript and "Insert horizontal line," could these be removed?

    It's fairly daunting to come here and see all of the options there and (probably) not know what many of them are about.

    would it not make more sense to find out what it all means before we do away with them?

    I'm not seeing what you describe so I have nothing to add.

    Jo6, of course we should understand what the icons are for before we suggest getting rid of them. I'm sorry I was assuming that people had hovered over them with the mouse for a clue as to their use. It's all too easy to make assumptions about the Internet and the way people use it.

    Even to know what I'm referring to, you need to be in the Enhanced Interface mode. If you click on Settings at the top right of the screen, then click on General Settings on the left of the page that comes up, then scroll down on the right to Miscellaneous Options, you'll find Message Editor Interface. If you select the first option, Enhanced Interface - full WYSIWYG editing, you'll see what I'm talking about. I'm sorry it's so complicated, but I've found it to be very worth while going through this hocuspocus because posting is a lot easier.

    If you get into the Enhanced mode, you see three rows of icons at the top of your message window when you start to post.

    The first three are: Table, Table Properties, and Delete Table. I haven't noticed many people setting up tables here but maybe it happens more than I know.

    The next six icons are Insert Row Before, Insert Row After, Delete Rows, Insert Column Before, Insert Column After, and Delete Columns. Here again, I wonder how often these are going to be used. I can't get any of these six icons to do anything but I don't know what I'm doing.

    That's why there is an enhanced option, for people to use them if they so desire. We won't be removing any of those "shortcuts".
    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    Someone on the MS board has found that the Thank You option doesn't show up if you're using the Biggie style.

    Maybe that could be fixed?

    My first guess to why the "Thanks" feature is not visible in the Biggie style is that by default the "Thanks" button was on the right. Mike had to move it to the left to make it show up. This probably needs to be done individually within each style.

    The arcade system is in closed beta testing. A few issues to figure out and fix and then it will be open for everyone :)
