My username is cut off in posts
Answer:
QUOTE (Jupiter)
Hi, I believe that the new software will support usernames up to a maximum of 15 characters. So if you want it to display properly, you will need to change your name.

This issue will affect a lot of users because the previous boards allowed usernames of any length.



Why does it show my location in my posts?
You can edit your Suburb in - My Controls - Edit Profile Information


What is <0 (0) 10> that is showing at the top of my posts?
Answer:
QUOTE (EB-Ally)
This rating is a moderation feature. If we have to warn members, or place them on PA we will increase their warn level and make a note of the issue. We might also use this in the TR if their a members involved in a dispute etc, so for easy reference other Mods can check the issue.

Only a member can see their own Warn Rating.



I don't want my profile displaying Last Visitors / Friends / Comments.
Answer = Load your profile (click on your username over on the left under Navigation). Click on the Settings tab. You can then choose to pre-moderate / disable / or adjust these options.


Can someone tell if I have visited their profile?
Answer = Not if you have logged on as invisible.


How do I quote someone?
Answer = As well as the traditional method of copying, pasting, hilighting and clicking the quote button, there is now two quicker ways. To quote one person, click on the ""REPLY button under their post, this will open a new reply with their post quoted. To quote multiple people click on the +QUOTE button under each post you want to quote, then click Add Reply.

How can I subscribe to a thread?
Answer = click on the icon in the top right corner of the first post. Choosing Immediate email notification seems to be the best option.


How can I view my subscribed threads?
Answer = Click on My Controls (over on the left) and you will see under Subscriptions "View Topics"


How do I go to the last unread post?
Answer = Click on the grey dot before the thread title.


There is no longer a different icon showing threads that I've posted a reply in, so it is difficult to see when there are new replies.
Answer = This has been logged with admin. In the meantime, you can view your recent posts by clicking on your username in a post or via your profile.


Can other members see my personal information in my profile? link
Answer = Most of that personal information is only viewable by you or admin.

I want to provide an update on a topic I started. How can I change the topic header to say updated and so on and so forth?

Apologies if I am missing something blatantly obvious.
