I have been on this forum for a while now. But there are 2 "small" things bothering me for a while as well.

***

1
When posting. We can do this in a nice Courier New format. But once we safe this post. The format is changed into, Times new roman? Or Arial?

So after creating a nice post. It comes out slightly mutated.

Is there a way for posts to be saved in a certain format?
Since courier new is one of the best to display table's.

It is still unclear to me and many other people how to post pictures without having to start a thread and post them in the very first post.

I (and I think many others) would like to see at least a thread where all the hints, tips and tricks are to this forum.

***

I hope others can back me up on this. Only to show that it would be nice. These two are important to me. Perhaps others can add their wishes.

And I understand if it is impossible for this forum to change. It highly depends on forum main formats and options.

I certainly wouldn't mind a sticky somewhere showing some of the more common functions of this forum. All forums are a little different, after all.

To link images use the standard img HTML format (i.e. <img src="">) and then below the post text area click on input format and select markdown.

Also I suggest you add width="450px" in the img code if it's wider than 450px because it will look funny otherwise.

Please don't format text and make any assumptions at all about what exact font or size everyone else is using. Posts will look very different depending on operating system, browser, whatever, not to mention when using a RSS feed reader to follow the forum.

Luckily, the code tag, that is in the list of
supported html tags on bgdf,
makes it possible to post in fixed-width. Of course
you will have to
edit the text in some external editor,
because the text input field is not fixed-width, to see more easily
what the output will look like.

Just click the input format link below the text area.
