Here's our yearly refresh of things you can do on DOBC aside from post. IPB is bloody awesome forum software, and there are a lot of features newer members may not yet be aware of.

1) Add friends. Members you talk to a lot, really like or otherwise want to watch closely can be added as friends; you will see a list of these on your profile as you add them.

2) Report a member. The opposite of a friend. If you feel someone is truly not behaving as part of the community, or is actually a spammer rather than a genuine member, you can report their account rather than just their posts.

3) Add a profile picture. This is bigger than your little user image; most people make it a wee bit more personal.

4) Post status updates on your profile. Works in a similar way to Facebook.

5) Add comments to someone's profile. Kinda like a PM, but viewable by everyone (and hence public).

6) Add or subtract reputation points on posts. This is a big one! If you think someone made a useful, insightful or otherwise brilliant post, you have the power to give them a + (note the little + and - marks on the bottom right of posts?)... if you think they've made an incorrect, abusive or otherwise unhelpful post that brings down conversation, you can vote the post down. Each vote contributes to a member's reputation.

7) Become a paid member. This year the annual fee will be $15, and 100% of that goes back into supporting the site with things like hosting, domain registration, software upgrades for the forums, pre-ordering DOBC apparel, etc. The advantage is pretty blue rank pips and access to new forums, and when they come, access to DOBC car stickers.

There are plenty more features here, but that should cover it for now. There are many more in the pipeline as the site grows too, so stay tuned and enjoy The Brown Side :D

<Shale>: Blighter doesn't really have an accelerator pedal, it's more just a loudness pedal. You can change volume, but you won't go any faster.

I did too XD I also forgot to go through Multiquote. Will reserve that for another day once everyone's un-brained that lot.

It doesn't automatically remind people, and it's been at LEAST 18 months of membership for some people XD Which is fine. I need to sit down and go through the DOBC accounts, then flick PMs to everyone that's due for an update.

Click the checkboxes at the top right of every post you want to quote, then hit 'multiquote' on one of them (bottom right). :D

Most are overdue. All good though. Just need to get my lazy arse around to checking them all off and sending out details/reminders all at once :P

That doesn't work for me Amy, but what does is hitting the big multi quote button on every post, then going down and clicking "Use Full Editor".

Then you've gotta make EVERYONE a moderator to have that feature.

Because hitting multi thingamajig and looking for a full editorial is too hard for some people.

Pull your handbrake just enough so the light comes on. That sends the ECU into full race mode.
