I've noticed that some of the moderators seem quite adept at some really nifty tricks, for example:<BR> 1. Quoting other stuff.<BR> 2. Linking to other threads, in which the thread name appears in bold.<P>What tricks do you use to get these effects? How do you do it efficiently, without opening a thousand windows and cut-and-pasting cryptic URL's all over the place? Do you use UBB or HTML? Are these tricks available to mere mortals?<BR>

When you see some of these 'tricks' - you can click into that person's posting box by clicking on the icon above the post and look and see what was typed.<P>You can't change what the person posted, but you can look at it. I've learned a lot that way.

CitiBob, yes, you won't have to open a thousand windows; just two or three. Image
