    I know that you're having some trouble with the board, and let me suggest that you somehow let the regulars know about an incredible feature that this board has;

    It's the arrow, on the topic, on the page with all of the other topics...it gets you to the first unread post without having to load the topic, if everyone knew about this, I'm sure there'd be a marked decrease in the calls to the server...I just found this feature, and man, I wish I'd known it sooner


    ps, fix my mailbox, please

    that's not what i'm talking bout...ok, after you bring up the new posts, you a page or two of topics, will, in front of each topic, there's a white arrow, that arrow will take you to the first unread post of that topic, whithout ever having to load the topic in the first place...

    that's exactly what I'm talking about, as, from your post, like me, you didn't know anything about this feature...huge time saver

    There are two ways for people to contact you using the forum :

    The EMAIL form - which goes to your actual email Address.

    Private Messages (PM) - PM's do not go to your email address, but are internal on the forums. So you can only access them through here.

    I just sent 3 or 4 PM's, to you dealer and they all went through, did you recieve them ok

    That is 1 thing I noticed from day 1 on this site- I tried PM'n alot of peeps that I know that hang out in the #xperience chan on irc.

    Everytime I asked them if they got my PM they'd reply, "What?"

    So I never really knew if it was a problem with the site or what- I just dropped it and thought it was an add-in that was just for looks :)
