    Managing account information (privacy, avatars, signatures, alerts, notifications etc) - http://www.forumvancouver.com/account/
    Hover over your name on the top right area of every page and a drop down menu should pop up where you can manage your settings.​
    Statuses and avatars can alternatively be changed on your profile page, see below for more details.​

    Managing your privacy settings here (very important) - http://www.forumvancouver.com/account/privacy
    Can be accessed as per above, but this is important enough for me to stress on its own.​

    Triggering alerts without quote showing up
    With this new forum system, members get alerted when they are quoted. However, when you're quoting a post that's immediately before yours, they can create a lot of clutter.​

    What you can do is click reply and clear out the text between the quote tags. This creates less clutter but the member is still gets alerted.​

    For example, if you were to quote this post, you would use the following:​

    [quote="Forum Vancouver, post: 3283"][/quote]

    Page scrolling
    For threads with many pages or on the member page.​
    Click the arrows between the page numbers :)

    Accessing profile pages
    Hover over your name on the top right and click either your picture, name or "Your Profile Page"​
    OR click on an avatar in a post to open the contact card, then click the picture, name or "Profile Page"​
