Also, when making a new stack this way, you have to set the title if you want to ditch the asterisk shown when you just set the name.
Thanks again. The asterisk was the first thing I noticed when I got a stack to come up.

Actually, I had a bash at creating an interface programmatically in LiveCode
in 2004:

The source code is available, so contact me if you want to play around with it.
Thanks, I will take a look when I can!

When I included your user ids in my previous reply, I did not preface them with '@'. If I preface them with '@' (like a Twitter handle), does that make them "real" user id references (as it would in a tweet), and does the user get notified, if they have the appropriate notifications enabled?
I am sorry, I completely misunderstood what you meant. As your post using the '@' shows, that does not turn the id into a user id like a hash sign on Twitter does, and I don't know of any way to do that outside of a quote either. The part of a quote that does it is

Parts of the quote...
You can modify that to some degree, but you would still need the quote format, so it would seem a pointless exercise. For instance,

Code: Select all

[quote=Voranis user_id=189338]Voranis[/quote]
...produces

...but for the effort required you might as well just select part of the text and quote it.

The @Name just is one way to specify who you were responding too, when it is a specific person out of many possible replies in the thread :oops:

The notifications are beyond your control to influence, as they are set in the user control panel by the individual member. This is how mine are setup for instance...

Notify me!
Because I have an RSS version of the boards in my email client, and I read everything that comes into it, I didn't feel like getting notified by email every time the board hiccups.

Everyone else I am sure handles it their own way, so feel free to reply in whatever way suits you :wink: While I wouldn't see a notification about you replying to my specific post, I would still see and read the reply. Of course, whether I have an answer is a different question :D

That's really peculiar . . .

Almost everything if you stop and think about things. 8)
