Can I edit my own posts?

You may edit or delete your own posts at any time. Look for the edit icon on the post to be edited. No one else can edit your post, except for the forum moderator(s) or the message board administrators. A note is generated at the bottom of each post that is edited so that every one knows when a post has been edited. Note that if your post was the start of a new topic, deleting your post will result in the removal of the entire topic (all replies after your topic will also be deleted). Please note that your board administrators may disable the ability of members to edit or delete posts. Only registered members can edit or delete their posts.

Can I use a signature?

You may use a signature (commonly used in email messages) on your posts. You may set your signature in your member profile. Once you have a signature stored, you can choose to include it with any post you make by checking the "include signature" box when you create your post. This message board's administrator may elect to turn the signature feature off at any time, however. If that is the case, the "include signature" option will not appear when you post a note, even if you have stored a signature. You may change your signature at any time by changing your profile, unless a message board administrator locks your profile.

Note: You may not use HTML in your signature file, but you may use UBB Code. Note that the board administrator may disable the UBB Code Image tag.

Can I search?

You may search for specific posts based on a word or words found in the posts, by a particular registered member, by date, and/or by forum. Just click on the "search" link at the top of most pages.

What are direct messages?

The administrators of this message board may permit members to send direct messages to each other. A direct message is not email. Direct messages are one-to-one communications that can only be read by the recipient. You can read direct messages in your profile section. You can also elect to be notified by email whenever someone sends you a direct message (you can set this in your profile). You can also prevent anyone from sending you a direct message (also configurable in your profile). Only registered members may send direct messages. This option can be disabled by the board administrators.

To send someone a direct message, look for the direct message icon on a post a person creates. You can send a direct message through the person's member profile, or from your Buddy List, if you have added the person to your Buddy List.
