    The go advanced button is like the View Your Post button on the old boards. it takes you to a full screen post where you can select smilies and have more options to edit your text.

    Okay, silly question maybe but is it possible to see the updates on the threads that you have posted on? It's much more helpful than just seeing the updates on all the posts (i.e. New Posts) because then I can track conversations that I'm in.

    EDIT: To answer my own question, Quick Links > Subscribed Threads seems to basically do that. Yay!

    At the top:

    Quick Links> Subscribed threads

    It automatically subscribes you to threads you've posted in!

    Concerning the sigs, it looks like the only folks with stuff broken are the ones that had formating on their sigs to begin with (i.e. if you changed the color, size, or alignment of anything in your sig).

    I am also thankful for the little icon that shows whether you've posted in a particular thread. I got excited about the 'Quick Links>Subscribed Threads' thing as I thought this meant that it would show all the threads from the old boards that I'd posted in. When it was empty I had a little panic because my crap memory means I thought I was going to have to search through every page of every forum looking for threads that seemed familiar! Little green icon means this search will be much quicker. :p

    Sorry if somebody's asked this already, but how do you mark topics/forums/the whole site as read? Right now it says I haven't read anything (which is a lie :( I read stuff).

    Also, I couldn't find the "settings" option on the mobile site. I just opened the full site and found it no problem, but with the current state of my computer I will be on mobile much more and would like to know where it is for future reference!

    Sorry if these are obvious, I blame it on that whole "Brown out" thing. :p

    At the top of the page, Forum Actions > Mark Forums Read. That will mark all forums as read. Then if you're in a forum, at the top, below the number of threads in the forum, click Forum Tools > Mark this forum read.

    Not sure on the settings for the mobile site.... I couldn't find it either while looking. :/

    Hope that helps a little though. :)

    When I write a post and it's longer or it just takes me a bit to write it says it's auto saved, so I'm wondering where is it saved to?
