    Fill in your profiles. Let's others see your point of reference for your questions and comments (location, car, occupation, interests). Not really a trick, but an unused technique.

    Great example - I found out someone lived near me with an identical car. Was able to see aftermarket wheels on his before I bought them and also made a new friend.

    Doesn't matter if you have a Ferrari or not.

    I agree with Mule. Let's update our profiles. Like Mule I found someone that happens to live in the same town as I do. And it's also nice to match the model/type car to a name.

    I hate when I take to long to write a response OR I pause in the middle of reading and the "last visited" time updates such that I lose the "goto unread post" down arrow buttons. Soooo....

    In my browser which supports tabbed browsing (Safari), I've set up a toolbar button called "Fchat" that when I click it, it loads the thread list for each of the forums that I like to read regularly each into a separate tab. They all have the arrows for the same point in time. Then I can leisurely work through those... as long as I don't update the thread listings, I have my nifty goto-unread buttons.

    I don't have a tip, but I do have a question. How do I put smiley faces in my replies? I see the little buggers up there, and I press on the button, but they don't show up in my posts.

    Bill, type a : then a ( or ) depending on if you're happy or sad. That will get you a smiley in the body of your post. If you click on the face as you're typing your reply, the smiley will go in the header. :)

    I really should know how to do this, but I don't, so I am going to ask. How do you post a link without having the address showing? For example, I want to post a link to google, but I don't want www.google.com to show, I just want it to say google. Thanks.

    Technically it's possible. I think I have it turned off though.
