and that MN threads should be set to newest post at the top.

OP post highlighted in colours is really good.

EduCated Bosnia-Herzegovina Fri 01-Feb-13 00:13:17

S'alright, Chaos. You can be in my weirdos club. Way cooler than anyone else's.

And it wasn't a personal attack numptybrains

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 01-Feb-13 00:13:31

I bloody love bookmarking.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 01-Feb-13 00:14:25

Shouldn't that be "wireod" or something chaos

Gwan, Mards.

Name some names.

<<tries to fuckliy goad>>

I have the OP's posts set to a murky green (possibly a shade of grey...I'm colour blind) and my own set to pink.

It definitely helps in skim reading a long thread.

EduCated Bosnia-Herzegovina Fri 01-Feb-13 00:14:44

And YY to highlighted posts. Mine are
Purple, OPs are green and MNHQs a nice pale blue.

MmeLindor Germany Fri 01-Feb-13 00:14:45

I tried the bookmarking but didn't like it. I think it was cause it got confused when I posted on phone. Not sure.

Long thread reading tactic:

1. Flip
2. Skim
3. Search for humphy faces or Message Deleted By Mumsnet posts
4. Stop and read bits that look interesting
5. Depending on topic of thread CTRL F and search for my name <vain>

Capital Cee, svp.

EduC, yow know I'm in ya club, bab.

Still think it's slightly cheating, Mme.

MmeLindor Germany Fri 01-Feb-13 00:16:06

Sorry Chaos.

Don't encourage Mardy to name names though. We've done that enough for today you can PM me instead

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 01-Feb-13 00:16:07

The OP is grey. I am a delicate shade of purple. I don't like some of the murky colour options.

<pointedly ignores goading>

EduCated Bosnia-Herzegovina Fri 01-Feb-13 00:16:26

Yow'm right about that, me babber.

skullcandy Fri 01-Feb-13 00:16:35

nope, i cant read them that way, confused me, things have to be read top to bottom with bookmarking!

VinegarTits Fri 01-Feb-13 00:17:05

YANBU i always read them from the bottom up, my way is the only way it should be done [sniff]

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 01-Feb-13 00:17:20

What's the ControlF Mme.
Mac user here, so might be something different.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 01-Feb-13 00:18:30

"We've done that enough for today"

What have I missed?
Tax return is done now though. You might see more of me tomorrow.


EduCated Bosnia-Herzegovina Fri 01-Feb-13 00:18:38

Ctrl F is search. Try Cmd F.

WorraLiberty England Fri 01-Feb-13 00:19:01

I've only got mine set to 'no pages' cos I was fed up of getting half way through a thread, only to find it went Poofff.

Having one long thread means I can read at my in the knowledge I can read it all grin

EduCated Bosnia-Herzegovina Fri 01-Feb-13 00:19:19

Stealth boats? Like ones that sail at night with all the portholes covered up?

You know the tip about having contentious threads open in 2 tabs, don't you, WorraL?

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 01-Feb-13 00:20:14

Brilliant. Cmd f is great. Never knew about that.

Hope I'm not teaching you to suvk egggs, obvis.


WorraLiberty England Fri 01-Feb-13 00:21:28

I hadn't really thought about opening 2 tabs blush
