    Loads of forums have a preview button you can click before posting the message you just typed, which personally i find very helpful, because otherwise I end up posting a load of gobbledygook, (which is fun, but annoying ).

    Also I'm assuming that these forums use that standard formatting code thing for online forums, (like html but not) eg. [ b ] = bold . If that is correct then it would also be very helpful if there were some of those wonderful buttons (that would appear by the side of the box where you type in a new post), that you can press to get the formatting code to appear magically in the box, instead of having to type it in yourself. Coz i usually forget all the codes except for bold and italic.

    I really really hope you can understand me. (I'm sure this post would be a lot more understandable if there was a preview button coz then i could properly visualise it when i check over it. hint hint.)

    In dire need of a preview button,

    Why a preview button?Can't you simply read it in the box where you type the message?That's what I do.Works fine!

    I like to type mine up and post it just to see how it comes out.



    Edit! And then act like I have some great "Late Breaking News" to add to the post.... and fix my spelling errors if I see any....

    This is playing well? We have no idea what these computers are doing! They are cracking us up, as we scratch our heads.

    Here's some banter from the game....

    1 White Fritz says good luck! :-}
    1 Black Hi Sir, Hello Fritz... CM9000 says hello too! GL, lets keep this game clean! P-

    2 White Clean?You mean no human assistance? LOL
