Hover over the "Preferences" menu on the upper right:




2. Tweet the link to any thread.
Click the "Tweet" button to the top left of the very first post in a thread.

Click the "Email Topic" link at the very bottom right of a thread.

HOW TO ADD AND DISPLAY AN IMAGE IN YOUR POST

1. Make sure you are on the "Full Reply Screen".
2. Click the button that says "Upload Image", and choose the image you want to upload.
3. Write your post, and then click "Post Reply".
4. When you see your post after submitting, you will see your file linked at the bottom below "Attached to this post".
5. Click that link.
6. Copy the link of the image in the URL bar, and hit the back arrow when you're done.
7. Click "Edit" to edit your post.
8. Put the cursor where you want your image to appear, and click "Image" in the toolbar along the top of the post's text box.
9. Post the image URL you copied in to that box and click "OK".
10. Click "Edit Post", and now you'll see your post with your image in it.
*Note - the amount of time you have to edit your post depends on the Group you are a member of. The minimum amount of allotted time is 30 minutes. As your post count increases and you move to higher ranked groups, the allotted amount of time increases.
