Login & Privacy
Invisible mode allows you to browse the forums without appearing in the 'Currently Active Users' lists.
You may choose to allow other users to download a vCard containing your email address and username.

If you want to keep your email address private, do not allow vCard downloads.

Messaging & Notification
Receive Email
From time to time, the administrators may want to send you email notices.

If you do not want to receive these notices, disable this option.

You can allow other members to send you email messages.
When you post a new thread, or reply to a topic, you can choose to automatically add that thread to your list of subscribed threads, with the option to receive email notification of new replies to that thread.
This forum features a private messaging system, which allows members to send messages to one another privately.

If you do not want to send or receive private messages, you may disable the private messaging system.

You may limit the receipt of private messages to just moderators and those on your buddy list. Other members who attempt to send messages to you will be told that you have disabled private messaging.

The forum can send a message to your email address to inform you when someone sends you a private message.

If you are browsing the forums when you receive a new private message, the system can pop-up a notification box informing you of the new message.

Thread Display Options
Visible Post Elements
You have the option to show or hide various elements of messages, which may be of use to users on slow internet connections, or who want to remove extraneous clutter from posts.
Here you can choose the display mode for threads. For a full explanation of the modes, please view this help page.
Use this option to set the number of posts to show in a thread before splitting the display into multiple pages.
You may specify a time period from which to display threads. Threads older than the age you specify will not be shown.

Date & Time Options
All timestamps displayed on the forums can be automatically corrected to show the correct time for your location in the world. Simply select the appropriate time zone from the list below.
In addition, you may set the appropriate option to allow for daylight savings time in your part of the world.
Different parts of the world traditionally use a different day as the start of the week. Select the appropriate day for your region here, in order to have the calendar appear correctly.

Miscellaneous Options
When posting messages to the forums or other members, there are three interface types available to you. The simplest of these is a simple text box, while the last is a fully-fledged WYSIWYG editor, which allows you to format your text as you want it and see the results immediately.

Depending upon the capabilities of your web browser, you may not be able to use all of these options. If you experience problems when posting messages, try switching to a different interface type.
