The help section does not explain what the icons/buttons at the top-right of each post do.
Attached is a picture of the icons/buttons in question.· BTW, when it's your own message,
these become Edit/Delete buttons, which are covered in the Help section.

    If you hold the mouse pointer over the icon for about 1 second it will show you what the icon does.

    Thanks Chris. I have added an item to the infamous 'To-Do' list to update the docs.

    The image with the exclaimation starts a "reply to this post" page. The yellow diamond with the exclaimation point lets you send a private message to the admin concerning the post.

    Okay, I held it there for awhile, but nothing...That's what I tried first by the way.· I was looking for the ToolTipText (Context Help) that normally appears.· I only get it from the bar on the left, and only with greyed out items, although most of those are self-explanatory.

    Well, it's something to add to the list...I know there's going to be bugs to work out.· At least I know what I'm clicking now.· Most of it's in the help, except the 3 I mentioned...You still didn't mention though, what's the Thumbs Down icon for?

    I guess it would be for·"muting" someone that was posting messages in an unappreciated manner. I'm assuming it would be global. Is that right?
