If you're talking about rating points:

works for ratings up to about 1800 I think.

The one I used was the "threadid" tag. If you can't find the result you want in the FAQ list, you can see what a particular poster did by clicking Reply&Quote, because the actual keystrokes show up there.

In the FAQ section about links there are a number of different tags you can use to make links. A tag is a set of items like this (this one produces italic letters):
[i*]some text here[/i*]
If you type that line exactly, it will appear just like that.
If you type that line exactly but without the two * symbols, it will appear as
some text here

Now that you get the idea of tags, you can use a whole lot of them to do different things. The one you need to display a thread is threadid, so:

If you don't know the thread number, go to the thread and it will appear somewhere in the address bar line.
