@pat - thanks for the tip for the "rep" button
. I just read the sticky - complex but interesting! Is it true that one has to be on-line for the "rep" button to be there? I wanted to thank redsoxm16 but his post has no "little scales rep" icon.
I'm not active on many forums. I spend most of my forum time on talk.maemo.org (for my Nokia N810). On that forum, there is a "thanks" button that is always active.
One thing I really like about sevenforums' software is the ease of attachments; best I've seen.
As an old guy, even though new to Windows 7, every time I'm on this forum I take a quick look at the new posts, just in case there is someone even more ignorunt than I (slim chance but WTH) and try to help. Perhaps in time I will transition from helpless to helpful!
