    The set up of this forum is so different. Is there any place to read quick tips? Or do you have any to share?

    I've been on forums of one kind or another since '98. It's crazy how they've evolved.

    Thanks for any help you can offer!

    Stuff to make it quicker and easier to find things I guess?
    I'm on a PC right now OE. I did find the mobile version on my phone earlier. Pretty good.

    And what is the credits and dollars thing? Why are there numbers there and what do they mean?

    What's the easiest way to look at the list and see which threads you've replied to?

    I find the "What's New" tab to be the most effective way to keep up with the action.

    Up at the top, below Home, Forum, Transactions, etc, you'll see a list.

    It should have:

    - New posts - This is new posts.
    - Some # / # - This is # new posts in # threads, since your last "marked forums read"
    - Forum Actions -> Mark Forums Read. I use religiously, that way I can use "New posts" more frequently.
    - Quick links, I suppose "Today's Posts" could be useful
    - View your threads or posts, pretty self explanatory.

    I pretty much only use the # - # to know that there are new posts, then click New Posts. And if it isn't a thread I'm interested in, I click "Mark Forums Reads"

    If there is anything else on the site, I don't know what it does...

    No idea. Probably for some future gaming/poker add-on that is in the works. I can neither confirm, nor deny such a feature, though.

    Personally, I think we should have a stock exchange where we buy and trade members of other boards based on their worth as posters...

    Scroll all the way down til you see a dropdown list with "-- 8th Maxim Parent Style" or the like, on it. Click it. Then click "Mobile Style."
