Instructions for the forum


New postings and reactions
Threads that have started after the last time you visited the forum, are marked with a 'N'. If the thread is not new, and there are new postings in the thread, it is marked with a 'R'.
Threads you haven't read are shown bold and in color.

Writing in the forum
The maximum number of characters in a message is 5000.
When you post a message, you have three choices:
- you can indicate you want an email message when a new posting is added in the thread you post in;
- you can indicate you want an email message whenever a new posting is added to the forum (this can lead to a lot of emails a day);
- in some fora you can place yourself on the mailinglist for information and news on the subject of the forum.
The first two choices are checked the first time you write in the forum, but if you uncheck them, they will be unchecked the next time.
If you receive mail, and you wish to stop it, you can manage this at the the link at the bottom of the mail.
