I’m creating this thread just to provide a place for me or anyone else to try out some of the new things you can do on the forum with the new design.
As with many social media sites, you can now tag another user by mentioning them.
@Joe_5859 is a great guy!

1.a Part one
1.1 Part one (alternate)
The numbering is easier to type in this way.
I think that’s enough to get things started! Feel free to jump in and make nonsensical posts in an attempt to figure out the new tools at our disposal.
