I want to see more (or less) posts per page.

You can change the number of posts to be displayed per page by editing your profile. You can set this from anything between 1 and 99 posts per page. When you first sign up this gets set to 30 posts per page.

 

What's with all the buttons?

The buttons are used for navigation and displaying posts. Depending on the screen you are on they may serve different purposes.

When displaying a list of all threads:
- The and buttons will take you to the previous or next page of posts.
- The button will take you to the index of all available forums.
- The button will let you make a new post on that board.
- The and buttons will allow you to toggle between expanded and collapsed threads. Expanded threads will show the subject of all posts and replies in a threaded format. Collapsed threads will show the subject of the main post along with the number of replies to that post.

When viewing individual threads:
- The and buttons will take you to the previous or next thread.
- The button will take you back to the listing of all posts on that page.
- The button allows you to view the entire thread on one page if there are any replies to the original message.
- The button allows you to view the current post with all other posts on that thread displayed below in a threaded format.
- The button allows you to reply to a post.
- The button allows you to edit a post.

 

Why are Subject, Poster and Posted On clickable?

You can click on any of these to change the order in which the posts are sorted and displayed. If you click on Subject once, it will display posts by Subject in reverse alphabetical order. If you click on it again it will display posts by Subject in alphabetical order. Poster and Posted on works similarly.

 

Why do you ask for a two email addresses?

The real email address is used for email notifications and forum subscriptions and to email your password. The other is what other users see when they view your profile. We realize that some people don't want everyone to know their normal email address, but we need to know it in case you want to subscribe to a forum or if you want to have replies emailed to you. For this reason you can give us your real email address that only we will see and you can provide a different one for the general public. Some people like to put in something like scream\@no.spam.wwwthreads.com. This way people can still figure out what your real email address is, but spamming agents can't just parse through the page and spam you.

 

Why should I register a Username?

By registering a Username, you will be able to edit your profile and preferences. You will get the most out of your time here if you change your profile to suit your individual tastes. There are alot of options in your profile to make your experience here more enjoyable, so please take a few moments to try the various settings. Also only people with registered Usernames can take advantage of the "New Posts" feature upon each visit.

 

What are user titles and how do they work?

User titles are displayed underneath your nickname when someone reads a post. You can also see the user title on the Who's Online page and on the user information page. If you leave your title alone, it will change when you hit certain landmark post counts. You are allowed to change your title to whatever you wish.
