Cursors can be your best friend!
Did you know how helpful your cursor can be when navigating the boards?

For instance, if you are not sure if you have posted in a Sweeps,
or a daily-click type of thread on that day, you can hold your cursor
over the envelope to the left of the Thread title ( ),
and it will show a strip that will tell you how many posts you
have in that thread & the last time you posted in it!

:D Or just for fun, you might wonder how many times you have posted in any thread, such as in a particular game!

These are the meanings of some of the other envelopes in that column:

New posts

No new posts

Hot thread with no new posts

Thread is closed

Another thing I find useful is if you don't remember the rules of a game,
you can see them if you put your cursor over the title of the game, instead of viewing the post!

If they're longer than a sentence or two you should look at the first post, though!:thumbsup:

Here's another tip:

People or locations in a picture can sometimes be identified by right-clicking on it, then choose Properties,
left-click on that and it will show you where it came from and what size it is.


(I made the words bold)

Try it on this one:

Thanks Mary! I've been here almost since day 1 and I didn't know these things!
