<span style="color:#FF0000;"><i><b>Welcome everyone!<br><br>
This is an old thread that will explain some of the cool features on this site! Feel free to ask questions here or share other tips you find!<br><br>
sierra<br></b></i></span><br><br>
As you guys and gals poke around here and find a new feature, post it here!<br><br>
There are so many features, I'm still finding them! Since most of my time has been spent in the <i><b>backroom</b></i> setting things up, I've not had a chance to really poke around in front!<br><br>
Here's one that I like: <b>WYSIWYG Typing! -</b> Beyond mere 'smilies', it's better then BBCode.. It's like using Word!<br><br><b>Instructions</b>Who has another they'd like to share?

You can click the down arrow just to the left of the thread title to be taken directly to the first post in the thread that you haven't seen yet.

If you enter your birth date (no year necessary) in your user profile, your birthday will be displayed on the calendar.

The site doesn't have one; however, you can download iespell.exe. (<a href="http://www.iespell.com" target="_blank">www.iespell.com</a>)<br><br>
This will allow spell checking of forum posts. However, I believe it only works in Internet Explorer.. but it does work!

glad that helped! if you hit the down arrow next to the name of the last poster, it takes you directly to the last post. But the down arrow to the first unread post is especially good!

When you insert a smilie, it inserts where ever your cursor is, not at the end of the post where you then have to cut and paste it back to where you want it! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
As opposed to the old site!

I'm still trying to figure out how to reply to a post without having to submit it twice...<br><br>
I'm probably the only person who liked the old site better...

Click on any users name and a menu drops down and in that menu is the option to " add to my buddy list" Click that and its done.<br><br>
Then, in the quick links, you can click buddy list and the list pops up as a small box in the corner of your screen and will tell you who is online from your buddy list!<br><br>
Its a cool little feature! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br><br>

I just put you on my buddy list. Did it hurt? Did you get a notification?<br><br>
I think it is just so you can quickly check to see if your "buddies" are online.<br><br>
And it looks like you can PM them from there.
