Bots and Links

For now we encourage all users to be especially careful of clicking on any links on the board...

Re: icons?

There are several icons in the system but the only ones that mean anything are the "?" the heart, and the lock. Thanksforallthefish is right that "?" means advice is welcome and the heart means no advice in that thread. The lock means that the thread has been locked, and that can only be put in plac...

Re: Common abbreviations for TW's in subject lines?

Responding as a mod, If your post requires a long warning that doesn't fit in the title it would be better to provide a full-word, complete warning at the top of the post. The only time that you are required by the rules to include a tw in the thread title is if your thread contains nazis or white s...

Any of your ways here would be acceptable. The first and second seem like the most accessible for ease...
