Hi all,

I thought that I'd make a technical thread so that new posters (and old posters) can look some things up.

Paragraphs will only appear if you hit return twice. If you hit return only once, there will be no new paragraph.

I find it difficult, when I want to refer to something that somebody posted higher up. I've put things in "", in '', in [] or in < < >> or >> < <. Sometimes the content of those brackets is not displayed, I haven't really found out why. "quote" seems to work well, I also try to add the name of the person I quote, and the name of the person I adress, if they are not the same. Any other suggestions that will make our posts better legible?

Some HTML tagging can help as well. If you want to italicize a quote from someone else, you can surround the quote with the italics tag. It looks like this: "< I >" to start out and "< / I >" when you're done. But don't include the spaces. So for instance, I'll quote eve:

Eve, in your previous post, you said Any other suggestions that will make our posts better legible?

You can also make posts bold by using < B > and < / B >.

I guess I'll need another "test and training" thread to try this out 🙂

I like to just add ______ around nicks if I'm replying to more than 1 person (which is often since everyone wants to talk to me; arent I popular, j/k).

Any way of highlighting the nicks is good. Any way to make the post more clear and more readable is good. Most people are able to manage this, except sometimes when people write things in one huge paragraph.
