You're very welcome, Boulos. It's been an 'international effort' of sorts, getting the new system configured - very much an image of the Community itself.

There are still 'kinks' to work out (the biggest being that quoted passages in posts imported from the old system are currently improperly formatted), but these will get dealt with.

I am most impressed by the breadth and depth of this site; I suspect it will lead to my spending considerably more time in front of my computer.

Testing spacing of possible new thread title--does anyone know if it is possible to use italics on the sub-title?

Well that didn't work . . . hmmm . . . does anyone know how many spaces are allowed for a "thread title?" I have some alternative titles in mind that are rather lengthy.

Thread titles are meant to be as short and concise as possible. The technical maximum is 85 characters, after which the system will allow no more to be entered; but do keep in mind that long titles will often be shortened by the moderators if a more convenient brief title is reasonable.

I, and sane and sensible people everywhere (a chorus in which I don't have a part myself), sincerely hope so. ;)

Dear Rick,

Possibly - I just get this sussuration of wrong buttons being pressed in the hunt for the off-button:rolleyes:

(Except on the American Orthodoxy thread, where I could swear there is another sort of noise, like a suppressed something or other!)

John-- Suppressed? Hmmm . . . "A suppressed something or other!" you say? I think we do have to allow a lot of room for that and think that your hearing capabilities are in very good working order to say the least. ;)

Hello,

I am wondering if anyone can tell me how to insert a smiley like this :) in my postings that I make elsewhere. Here in this "test area" I see the wall of smilies on the right hand side of the screen; but, I am wondering how I can use these in the regular posting areas?

Thank you,
Rick

Rick,

I think that smilies do not work on the regular posting areas because of their casual character and nuance.

I think those are meant only for the casual and personal discussions areas.

You can always use this : and this ) and create a smiley.
