first post test

You mean you wonder why there isn't a reply button at the bottom?

That's becuase we (the old members) prefer to reply to a specific person (which is shown at the top of the post "RE: in reply to xxx" - It makes discussions so much easier. You'll like it, trust the forum.
 
Supposidly we will get a say into the layout of the forum at a later date, the threads are already there and countless small features that have been requested have been added.

For example, select some text in your post and press the quote button - It will quote itself instead of just adding a [/quote] tag.
 
Most forums you visit will just add a start quote tag when you press the quote button. Then you c/p the text, and press the quote button again. Our forum does this, but you can also just paste the text in, select it and press the quote button.
