From now on please post corrections here. Just copy and paste the old info and then below it, make the proposed corrections. This is much easier for me to update the initial post. Plus, the wiki links were taking you to the first post anyway, which seemed moot. Thank you. --McSlick

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

corrected- Thanks acesmuzic!
The vbulletin link (http://forums.slickdeals.net/faq.php?faq=vb_faq) in the FAQ's section no longer works. I'm pretty sure it should now be this: https://slickdeals.net/forums/faq.php?faq=vb3_board_faq

Reps - You may now rep posts up to 90 days old.

Is there any place to see the activity when users reply to one of your posts? I get the toast notifications when I login but I'm looking for a place. I thought it would of been under the "notification" bell but I guess not?
hi you're correct, you can see quote notifications on that page. quotes will have a blue quote icon next to them:

edit: i believe it's a bug but it appears that right now the link only takes you to the thread, not the actual post you were quoted in, so for the time being you may wish to check your notifications by bookmarking this page: https://slickdeals.net/forums/notifications.php
the links on that page should take you to the quoted post Smilie

When people post pictures how do I get to see them? They don't show up on the posts for me.

hi sorry you're having trouble seeing pictures here.

can you give some more info about how you usually browse sd (are you in classic or redesign? using a computer or mobile device? what browser, etc) and an example of a thread with pictures that you can't see?

In addition to what acesmuzic said above, you can check to see if you have 'show images' enabled in your account settings.

To go your profile, click on the Edit Options
https://slickdeals.net/forums/profile.php?do=editoptions and make sure that the " Show Images (including attached images and images in [IMG] code)" under Thread Display Options is checkmarked.
