    Default suggestion: vbcode & protocols

    i seen some post with scroll bars in the code tags. How's that done? can't find any info on the faq page. i find that useful, maybe someone can add that onto the faq page.

    also, a test subforum would be nice where i can test out some post, tags, codez, etc....

    lastly, i seen alot of repeats about using code tags, etc...
    maybe there can be a page for protocols, so we can just copy/paste the info.

    PROTOCOLS:
    Hi, welcome to java forums. Please remember to use code tags so others can read your codes more easily. blah blah blah

    Hello. Please remember to close the thread when it has be solved. You can do this by...

    well you get the point.

    Default Tries that, done that

    I submitted a similiar suggestion a couple of times (to moderators and in this subforum):
    Informative Sticky Post
    It didn't go anyplace... apparently, it's ok to have a sticky post of favorite IDE's but not OK to have a sticky post of the principal do's and don'ts of the forum... go figure.

    well telling new members to go read the faq or sticky post is alot like telling someone to go RTFM (read the friendly manual). which no one bothers anyways...

    i'm asking for a protocol page much like the faq page. one where i can copy text and paste it into the thread w/o re-typing.

    Default My idea was...

    My idea for the sticky post was to have it with a title like "Before positng for the first time, read this first !!!". If somebody did a no-no, then all you have to do is reference the sticky post instead writing it all out again. Just an idea...

    Default Sure...

    I can agree to that... maybe the mods & admins want to give their 2 cents worth...
