It really, really sucks when your favorite player chooses to go to a hated rival.

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Is it really allowed to have 2 Canadians on this forum?

Welcome to the forum Achernar.
Thanks Protoss. Itís a pleasure to meet you.

Be reassured, as a Quebecois, my culture is different enough from other Canadians to avoid breaking any rules. Our values are mostly the same, but we donít speak the same language, our origins are not the same, our culture is not the same. So, it should be ok with the mods

Well, Iíve been following the forum for a while now. I would say 2 years or so. I know most posters in GM. The nice ones, the mentally disturbed, the trolls, the knowledgeable ones, the funny guysÖ Iím a new poster, but I know a thing or two about this site

Thatís being said, Iím still learning how to use the forumís tools. I donít know how to multi-quote several posts to answer all of them in a single post. Or how to insert a picture in my post (well, I did find how to attach a picture, but itís not what I wanted to do). And I wanted to create a poll about the accuracy of Wimbledonís stats, but it seems that Iím not allowed to do it

You are absolutely right there.

Easy enough. Just click the "multi-quote" tab on all of the posts you wish to quote and then go to the bottom of the page and push the "reply" button.

Place your cursor over the image you wish to post. Right click and select "Copy image URL." Then type the following:

[ img ] [ /img ] (but without the spaces)

Put your cursor in the middle and push the control button and the "v" key. Make sure there are no spaces and it should work. You may have to try a few times but eventually it will be simple.

I'm not sure but I think that you need to have a hundred posts or reach some other "milestone" before you can do polls.

DIAH is a nice fellow,but he doesn't really flatter the educational system in your country.One time,he spelled 'Canada' with a 'K'...he claimed that it was a typo and that he had been drinking too much Molson,but we have our doubts after he complained about all those 'Kwabick-ers' who insist on having ITALIAN as an official provincial language.When we told him that it was French,he replied,"French,Italian,Egyptian,Chinese--they all sound the same!"

Has estado un chupapija por los banqueros y imperialistas tras ocho aŮos; ahora puedes bajar en tus rodilleras en tu tiempo libre, cobarde marica:

WTA suffering from Dementieva withdrawal, a lack of true queens

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Thanks a lot

As you said, the multi-quote function seems easy enough. Iíll try it eventually.

Iím not sure what you mean exactly for the pictures, but I guess you have to insert the URL between those [ img ] [ /img ].

About the polls, Iíve read somewhere that we need 50 posts and 500 credits. It should be the milestones youíre talking about. Iím not sure if Iíll reach those 500 credits before the End of The World, though

I wouln't be so sure about the credits...

Nothing I can do about the post count though.
