Soooo What is a Rivet? Where do they come from? What is KArma? (I am not coming back as a frog thank you!) How can I reply to a post or does it always have to go at the end of the thread? Why do they still make plaid bell bottoms? Do I dare ask about IMG and vbcode?
Rivets are awarded based on activity on the forum (number of posts).
Karma is awarded based on the number of posts you make, long threads that you started, and can be awarded or taken away by others on the forum that like or dislike your posts. Frankly, most of us pretty much ignore Karma.
Replies have to go at the end of the thread so that when folks look for additions to the thread, they know where to look. Otherwise the whole thread would have to be searched each time and some threads are a hundred or more long.
Maybe someone likes plaid bell bottoms. Who knows?
IMG permits you to include a link to a photo on a wesite, either your own or another site outside the forum.
Ignore vbcode, I do and I'm a programmer.
