How can I search the board?

You can search for posts by username, by date or by keyword(s) in the post body or subject.

To access the search feature, click on the "Advanced Search" link on the right-hand side of the page or use the "Quick Search" field located above every threadlist.

All existing forums that you have access to are automatically searched, i.e. the search is not restricted to the forum that you last visited. You will not be allowed to search through private forums unless the administrator has explicitly authorized you to do so.

How can I link to technologies or projects in the database?

You can link to a certain technology or project within your post quite easily. Just copy the technology site’s URL (internet address) as it is shown in your browser’s address bar.

Then copy it into the text body of your post. Be sure that the button, "automatically parse URLs" below the text input area is activated. This function makes the URL "clickable" and links it to the correct technology or project.

Can I send an email to other members of this board?

Yes – but only if they have allowed email to be sent to them. To send an email to another member, you can either locate the person you want to contact on the thread list or click the member name on any post made by that member.
