It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

How to reply to someone

I think some people are having anxiety over the loss of the "classic" view, where they could click "reply" to a specific person's post, and it would show up underneath that post (and indented).  While that allowed folks to quickly see who replied to whom, it also made a mess when there were a lot of replies (each reply would consequently indent further to the right).  I have seen some posts where the replies stretched all the way over to the far right side of the screen!! 

Anyway, in this new format, if you just type "@username" (without the quotes) and then type your reply - that is how many other forums & comment boards do their replies. 

In fact, if you highlight & then copy that person's username & then paste it into your response, it will actually "hyperlink" the name for you (you can click it & it will take you to their profile). 

For example, if I were to reply to myself by manually typing all or part of my username, I might do something like this:

@Hillbilly - blah, blah, blah...

But, if I were to reply to myself by copying my username, it would look like this:

@Hillbilly-Hightech - blah, blah, blah

So, I hope this helps!!!! :-)

Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup... Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. - Bruce Lee
