Sandbox - Try out, experiment, learn!

Use this topic to practice using the new forum. A few things to try are

  • Quoting someone by highlighting text and clicking ‘quote reply’
  • Post a picture by uploading it
  • Post a YouTube video by pasting the link (the forum will automatically embed it)
  • Format your text, include links, use bullet points, etc.
  • search within a topic by a) scrolling down or b) using the search bar (which lets you do topic-internal search if you are in a topic)
  • mention someone else by using @ and typing someone’s username
  • liking a post

There are more things to try. Just knock yourselves out. Learning by doing! :smile:

Make sure you read our little Welcome Topic with a few helpful tips and links.

Let’s try with a couple of YouTube videos.

The first one (December '77) is dedicated to scherpschutter who doesn’t like the hairdo of Femi Benussi in Quintana, the second is epochal: according to Mr. Giancarlo, contestant on a TV game show in the early 1990s, “Amazons won battles thanks to their cunt”… :smile:
