Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Show off your My B&N profile!

I am new to this.  The more I look around the more I find.

 

I have as much in my profile and I can think of at the moment.  I still need to add DVDs but as I remember what my favorites are I will add them.

Nicer to you? What about the horrible, mean, nasty, sarcastic, Oscar Wildish, horrendous, disgusting, evil, under-handed, deplorable, viscious, slanderish, and just down right not nice things you say to me. :smileywink:

Re: Show off your My B&N profile!

If you had been following my posts here for the last few years, you would know that I am one of the most passionate defenders of free speech.  But I prefer free speech that doesn't come at the expense of thought!  :smileywink:

In response to Everyman's reply:

 

That's too bad. I would have liked the opportunity to view your profile. Only because I find you interestingly intimidating somehow. I do not know if this makes any sense at all, but your personality seems to sway a lot in each of your posts. I am a little befuddled by you. I thought that maybe your profile would shed some light.

 

Are you to good to create a profile? :smileywink:

Re: Show off your My B&N profile!

I was wondering if someone could help me.

 

When I first started replying to a post, my reply would contain the original posters wording within my reply. Now when I reply to a post this does not happen. Does anyone know how I can remedy this?

Hi janalee,

 

You need to hit the "Quote Post" button.  It's located to the left of the "Check Spelling" and "Preview Post" buttons.  That will put the text of the post you are replying to in the editor, with lines on either side.

Re: Show off your My B&N profile!

Click the "Quote Post" icon above the reply box.

 

Make a decision whether to a) click the quote post first to put the post at the top of your reply and then type your under it (gets very hard to find your reply if the post you're replying to is lengthy),  b) type your reply first and then click the Quote Post icon to put the original post under yours, or c) cut and paste from the original post only those parts relevant to yoru reply.

I would like to see Everyman's profile, too!  Maybe if we keep teasing and harassing him... :smileytongue:
