Wishlist type things

Recommended Posts

I noticed a few things that people had mentioned about the new forums here, and just in an effort to help out... Here is some information...

1) Spell Checking - There is a spell checking mod available, and it is VERY easy to install. http://mods.ibplanet.com/db/?mod=1678

2) Posting a link does NOT require the use of the "http" button above. So long as you type the full link, such as http://www.spamcop.net. I think www.spamcop.net does NOT work, but the first does. You can do link "renaming" using the http button, such as Spamcop Homepage

3) Quoting is very useful, not only in quoting a previous message, but also to set something apart. For example, instructions...

Please note that you will have to register before posting. This system

is not locked in stone. The entire thing may go away, so don't post

anything you can't stand to not have archived or something. If you just

want to "play" please use the Test Forum. That one will definitely be

deleted entirely eventually

Use the quote button.

In general. This can be a far easier way for the modern computer ninny to get a question asked and answered. In all honesty, Usenet is a geek domain nowadays. It is very difficult for the average user, and the average user doesn't even know it exists, much less how to access it.

Oh... And 5) You can EDIT YOUR POST. If you forget something.. There's no need to post another message.

Another way is to use the CODE button. For instance:
This is some CODE, also known as "Monotype Text".  It should show up looking differently.  At least, that's the idea.  That's all I really have to say on the subject.

Honestly.

See what I mean?

You can also use the LIST button to make a bulleted list. For instance:

  • Wake up.
  • Exit bed.
  • Walk to restroom.

That concludes the LIST demonstration.

I am moving this Topic to the SpamCop Help Forum, as it involves the SpamCop Forums.

...Another wish: paragraph indenting. This will allow me to stop using the three periods before the start of my paragraphs.

...Sure, I know I could just leave an extra line between my paragraphs, but I'm anal. :P

I tried pasting in tabs, but that doesn't work. Please try doing without indentation.

Also, have you considered that blank lines between paragraphs are normal when one is not paying for whitespace?
