    I will keep adding things to here when I figure them out:

    1. Change your Avatar:
    Go under your name at the top right hand portion of the screen and click on user profile. Then hover over your default avatar and an "edit" prompt will come up. You can then change your avatar.

    Multi quote has been bothering me. I KNOW I turned it on. Finally figured it out.

    Click on the quote button in each post you want to quote. Then on the top left there is a "post reply" button. It will show how many posts you are quoting. Click on that and you will be able to quote multiple posts. Go to the bottom and type your reply.

      1. On the top right of the site click on your use name, then on "My Profile".
      2. On the left side click on "Edit Settings."
      3. Click on "Account".
      4. Scroll down to "conversation detail options" then click on "edit post signature".

            Don't like scrolling back to the top of the screen to go back to the main section or back a page? Hit "GO TO TOP" at the bottom right hand portion of the page in the gray section.

              Here are some more obvious tips, but nonetheless:
              • To add a photo to a post, hit the Camera button in the top left hand corner of the text box you are in.
              • To edit your fonts, click on the underlined A to the top right hand corner of the text box you are in. You can also upload attachments with the clipped note icon and add smileys with the happy face icon.

                I think I have to do it. Tell me what you want and I will give it a shot.

                    Another tip that may or may not be obvious:

                    Use the Message Feature in red at the top right hand portion of the screen. It will bring you to any of your instant messages or show who has responded or liked one of your posts.

                        QUOTE VS. COMMENT

                        This board software has a quote button and a comment button.

                        When you use the "quote" button, you add your own thoughts, then post, which brings the original post and your reply up to the top of the thread.

                        When you use the "comment" button, it just adds your thoughts at the bottom of the post you are commenting on, and does not bring the post up to the top. It stays where it was.

                        I suggest using the "quote" button most of the time, so the most people will see your post and will be able to discuss it. I would like to disable the comment button but I don't think I can.

                          Another problem with the comment feature, unless I just can't figure it out, is that you can not reply to a comment. If you click on quote, only the original post comes up, not the comment.

                            With that said, it seems the comment feature is unnecessary, and I agree with MW147 that we could probably do without it.
