    you complained about time to respond. if you look at the top of the forum main page, assuming you have not disabled it, there are the ten most recent posts, and at certain times of the day, there will be ten post submitted one right after the other.

    this causes your post to get pushed on down the list.

    usually before I ask a question I enter a few key words from my question into the search and see what comes up...and i go through all the results, if it is a question that has already been asked and answered, it is most likely old, and farther down the list.

    also, change the words in your query a few times. sometime it will turn up different results, some better than other

    one thing you should try is alternating colors on each line that way they can be like oh I lost my spot well I was on this word that doesn't help well it was blue and the point of your story should be a different color like red it catches eyesbecause most people out there are lazy fat and sit on a computer or in front of a screen all day and its worse with crt`s and lcd smaller than 10 inch my eyes hurt right now and im with ya on that new thing i just started my acount earlyer today and ive been reading these forums for a wile almost half a year now

    Alas no. That is not recommended.
    Non-centered justified text rather than justified - yes.
    But not colors. (There is an ISO standard ... part 17 refers.)

    On my screen, or to my eyes, your yellow text is unreadable.
    Colors should generally NOT be used.
    Bold, tabs, indents, case, paragraphs etc can be.

    I should ban you for hurting my eyes, but seeing as it's Xmas I'll let you off.

    Just a note:

    Your resident forum a-hole had nothing to do with this.

    And I had the link to "how to ask smart questions" in my signature for over a year, largely ignored.
    The more things change, the more they stay the same.


    Merry Christmas, gang...
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
