Tips for writing proper messages on the forum.

1. Embedding youtube videos:
You have to use the red button with an "f" inside, it will add a tag and you'll need to manually insert the correct http link:
Code: [Select]
[flash=200,200]http://www.youtube.com/v/40NDQpbj_7Y[/flash]200 is the size (you can change it, but keep it small to make the topic more readable). Pay attention to the youtube link format ! It's http://www.youtube.com/v/<ID>, where <ID> is your video's ID. This will give this (size here is 400x300):
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/40NDQpbj_7Y" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/40NDQpbj_7Y</a>

2. Multiquote:
When you reply to a message and you want to quote multiple messages, type in your reply as normal (eventually quoting the 1st message you want), then place the cursor were you want to position the next quote to include in your reply and scroll down the main "Post Reply" page you are on and you will see all the other thread entries with an "Insert Quote" button next to each one. Choose the quote you wish to enter next into your reply and simply press that "Insert Quote" button and it will insert that additional quote exactly were you last placed your text cursor in the reply post text window.
