What about the Followup-feature? I don't get it!!!
You could reply to an individual message in the topic other than making a "normal" reply. Just click the message # and write the reply. This is useful to trace messages in large topics.

The new Messageboard is slow. What's wrong?
Well, are you experience this all the time or occasionally? The MB should be very fast and optimized even for 56 bkit connections. You might try to disable userphotos in your preferences to gain more speed.
How to include URL's/links in my message?
Type the following: <a href="http://myurl.com/blahblah/">click here</a>
It will look like this: click here
I can't login. What's wrong?
Basically, you're in the MEMBERS ONLINE list, but your name is not anywhere in PERSONAL INFO box, right? Delete any xltronic.com cookie found on your system. That should solve the problem.
Can you really ban me?
Of course we can. If we find you annoying, destructive for the mb or behaves in a "bad" way - then we won't hesitate to ban you.
Is hacking the board OK?
First of all let's see what "hacking" means. If you fool around the code, and try to hack the server side code, we will punish you at once. It means a permanent ban.
If you only try to do some HTML trickery, and mess up the board's layout, and you have reported it to a member of the crew, you are OK. Otherwise you can count on a temp or perm ban.
Did you sign up only to spam?
That is not tolerated. We might even ban your account just for the sake of it - and it's strictly forbidden to create another account, so think twice before spamming around...
