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

OP post highlighted in colours is really good.

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

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

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.

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

MmeLindor 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.

ChaosTrulyReigns Fri 01-Feb-13 00:16:02

Still think it's slightly cheating, Mme.

MmeLindor 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 Fri 01-Feb-13 00:16:26

Yow'm right about that, me babber.

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.

Ctrl F is search. Try Cmd F.

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

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

ChaosTrulyReigns Fri 01-Feb-13 00:19:51

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.

ChaosTrulyReigns Fri 01-Feb-13 00:20:15

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


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

I hadn't really thought about opening 2 tabs blush
