When viewing your message, click the edit or delete icon.
Collapsed vs. Expanded
In the upper right corner of each message board you view, there will be two
options, Collapsed and Expanded. When viewing
messages on the message board, if you choose to view them in the Collapsed
mode you will only see the top-level posts. To view the replies to these messages,
then, you would have to click on each message to display the replies. Expanded
mode, on the other hand, will display all posts and all replies to posts on
the same page.
Flat vs. Threaded
In the upper right corner of each individual message, there will be two options, Flat and Threaded. Reading the posts in
Flat mode will display the message you are reading as well as all replies
to that message. Displaying a message in Threaded mode
will display only the message that you chose, but will list all of the messages
in that thread underneath the message.
Updating Your Nickname and Profile Information
A feature of the boards includes removing the ability to post anonymous
threads to the boards. Your eteamz nickname and profile will be attached to each message.
To change your nickname and profile, simply click the edit profile link on the top bar of the
message board page (top left, next to your nickname). Your profile page will display allowing you to change your nickname and other Member Profile information.

Navigating to Other Board Categories and Viewing
To switch categories in sections with multiple message boards, you may use the
"Jump to Board" drop down window, located in the bottom right of the
page. To change the number of threads you may view on one page, use the "Threads
per page" drop down window, located in the lower right of the page (on
the same line as the page bar).
Views and Replies
Next to each message on the boards, eteamz tracks the number of times a
person has looked at a particular post. This is tracked as the number of Views.
Similarly, when in Collapsed mode, the Replies column lets you know how many
additional messages are attached to that message in the tread. And, if there
is a reply to one of your messages, a image will appear to the right of the replies count.
Note: The times of posts and replies are listed in PST (Pacific Standard Time).
