    Is there a basic user guide on how to post? How do you include quotes from other posts? How to add links, photos, etc?

    There is some basic information at this link. You started your own thread...that is already a step in the right direction! :)

    If you want to quote someone to respond to them directly, hit the quote button and the box will pop up with the other person's message there. Put your cursor either before or after the quote and you can type what you'd like.

    I hope that helps!

    I'm having problems with the new format. It's not easy to use for me. How do I get rid of the "activity stream" that now automatically pops up when I log in? I'd prefer to open to the forums, not the activity stream, which is just a bunch of noise to me!!!
    And less important, why am I seeing ads now?
