It would be great if we could "merge" all our past threads into a single one if we chose to, or organize them into some year-month folders... just a few thoughts..
    Great idea, being able to merge our own past threads in some way. I started doing a "single" thread approach a few years back because I wanted to keep stuff together, and fell in love with it. I've a lot of old threads I'd love to be able to merge by certain topics if there was an easy way to do it.

    Good idea, byroncallas. One thread there has 961 pages, started 5 years ago! with the subject line " Bus sketch'es 1.2.3.4.5."...have no idea what that means. No one would go through all those pages unless they were here when those threads started, there are a few of them. Personally, I'd like to see a separate one done for each new painting started by members. Just keeps things looking current imo

    Edit: Plus having to re-find the threads to re-post in them each time must be tedious.

    Thanks Hildee. I suspect this is one of those different strokes for different folks kind of things. For example, the Bus Sketch thread has something like 400,000 views, the most by leaps and bounds of any thread in the forum. It's a living, breathing entity for those who want to engage it, full of lively exchange that has taken on a life of its own. Lots of people engage it. Different people come in and out of it over time. It's clear, from reading the posts, that many have perused it and found delight at various points in its history. The MOARA thread started by Lima years ago is another great example. These threads may not be for everybody, but they are certainly beloved by many who have stayed engaged with them over many years. Of course, many (probably most) people enjoy the process of posting a new painting, have a short-term engagement about it, and moving on to the next thing. I like that too. It's great that the forum accommodates both. Both together provide rich texture for engagement in the forum. The idea to be able to pull together a collection of past threads thematically, for example, is an idea to add another layer of subject matter organization and participation texture, though I gather from Hannah it may not be technically achievable near term. If it ever is, no doubt the inventive people who participate in this wonderful forum will find terrific ways put it to good use.

    Perhaps when I have a century to spare...

    We're trying to improve the actual website's resources and tutorials, and that does include paying attention to the information in the forums. However, there are an awful lot of posts, and a lot of outdated (though once brilliant) information. It would be very good if we could organise it a bit better, but it may have to be a community effort.

    I can merge them for people on request. Send me a PM with details if anyone wants something merged - though if the result is too confusing, I reserve the right to not do it

    Noted. Unfortunately, that falls under 'stuff the forum just can't do right now'.

    Just a tip: common shortcuts like ctrl + b for bold will still work, so you can type normally, and it will insert the code for you.

    Works fine for me. I don't require any changes....except for a lazyboy recliner to sit in while I read.

    The last time I kept an open mind,
    my brain fell out and the dog grabbed it.
    Now it's full of dirt, toothmarks, and dog slobber.
    No more open minds or dogs for me.www.gms9810.com/

    You can currently link directly to a post. If you click the little number in the top right of your post (e.g. #2 ) it's a link directly to that post.

    I guess I am lost here,why click on the # when I am already looking at the post?What do mean by link directly?

    Does anyone sign up for tutorial courses i.e.: Lynda.com?I find, like any manual I have ever read that there is always something missing, The instructor knows what and where to go to,but fails to give adequate guidance.

    What reasoning is there to go to other sites to talk about AR when this site contains so much,other than a sales idea?

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.
