    AO features that you use

    Hi folks. I'd like to get some insight into which features are being used and how. Everyone uses AO a little differently, I suspect, and I'm curious of what we appreciate and why.

    Please note, this is *not* a bitch thread, to complain about things or wish for changes and ask for features. You can do that elsewhere. Simply put, I'd like to know what you currently use, and why or how it makes your experience at AO better/easier/less agravating.

    --EDIT--

    I chose the following:
    -Private Messages (or PM's)
    -AntiPoint system
    -Index/portal customization (main page display)

    I chose the same ones as you, as they are the only features that I use on a regular basis.

    Well I use search a lot too, but what message board would be complete without a search function?

    I used the journal a long time ago, so I checked that. I haven't made an entry in a long time.

    Otherwise, the PM's to talke privately and APs to send quick positive or negative response.

    Haven't experimented with the customization of the portal, didn't know about the notepad and never quite got what the bookmarks do.

    I find myself using the site NotePad a fair bit, just type in random things i think of while reading threads etc.
    i've got a few snippets of funky code that i made up while drunk once. still need to compile it and see if it does anything.

    also the Ap system, it comes in handy if you have nothing worthwhile to contribute to the thread, you can just send some Ap's with a comment.

    And the Pm system is brilliant, i've had some fantastic conversation's with a few members here. plus it comes in handy if you need to share information off the board.

    cheers

    Primarily PMs, Bookmarks and APs. I keep MS Word open with Check Spell and Grammar on, and almost always cut and paste any large responses.

    cheers

    I seem to use the same as most people here do.
    1. PM's
    2. AP's
    3. Index/portal customization

    I have tried the bookmarks, but once I set a couple, never went back to them.
