Use it correctly. It's not hard. Thanks.

when sean and his gang asked for site improvement suggestions before the last re-hash i did suggest an FAQ section - he said they had thought of that, but i guess it'll be a while before we see it.
You just click reply to who you are replying to...!
common sense if you've never used an internet forum before. and i hadn't. or perhaps i'm just lacking in common sense. probably a bit of both. ah, now i remember what my point was; say someone starts a thread that turns out massive and you want to reply to them but don't want to be rude, and seeming to butt in on the first person who's replied.. well i thought that if i hit 'reply' directly to them, my post would go straight to the top - appearing rude. i had no idea that wouldn't happen.
yeah - common sense - where can you buy that?
its been playing up since the re-design? we all say, it cant be that hard, and it isnt, but even seasoned users seem to have been getting it wrong...
and then realise my mistake and try to click reply in the right place, nothing happens.
and it'll end up where you last clicked 'reply'.
but yeah, it's pretty annoying.
though I'm sure I've screwed it up many times.
no admin rights.
i can do what the fuck i want!
of forum a bit shit.
It's looks nice, but the reply function is just one of the confusing elements. A phbb board makes much more sense to me.
it's one of the reasons why i actually use it, in fact. everything's on one page, it's simple to tell which reply is in relation to what, it loads quickly.
to tell who's replying to who, maybe it's just me though.
and if you have trouble, just place the cursor lined up against the left line of the box, then scroll up and you'll see who that person has replied to because that post will be outdented a little to the left.
I'm sure that made no sense whatsoever, I think alcxxk explained it to me simply, ask him...
i think its relly easy to use and saves with all the quotingdone on other boards
