    The little green thingy in the top left of an avatar indicates a user is online now. The [OP] means that this person is the “original poster” of the thread you are reading now.

    One of the most useful links I use is “ACTIVE TOPICS”. This link helps you see where all the current discussions are happening across all discussion forums.

    Another useful link is “WATCHED THREADS”, followed by “Show all watched threads”.

    When typing a response, use the @ symbol to tag someone. In this case, after I type @apr, a pop-up appears showing april77. Click on the pop-up to complete the entry.

    When viewing a list of thread titles, you can copy that title, including hyperlink, by highlighting and copying the title. To highlight the title, point mouse just to the RIGHT of the title, hold left mouse button down and drag left. Once highlighted, then you can copy it (using a menu or CTRL-C).

    You can paste that hyperlinked title directly into a reply.

    For what it's worth, be more generous with “like” (versus other ratings) to help improve others' trophy points.

    Thanks, I thought you were going to tell me to be more careful on what I say to others.
    Often I write something and it can be taken another way that could be offensive. Most of the time I don't plan to offend anybody. I find it interesting how our language can vary just a bit from other parts of the country.
    so I will apologize in advance if I have offended anybody:)
