In your first post you make a link to your second post

And without getting an edit marker at the bottom...

circular ref's anyone? :D

HINT: make the browser window height smaller than both posts so you can only see one to prove the effect.

His point is that he made a link to the second one before it existed.

Which is EASY. :P

Finally somebody that got it!
In the first post you make a link to a post that doesn't yet exist. If you were to back and edit the first post once the second one is created you will get an Edit marker at the bottom, because the first post is no longer the last in the thread. So you have to create a speculative URL based on a reference number that is not yet allocated, so you have to find a trick to reserve it before making the second post. A little knowledge about phpBB and two browsers will get you going. Unless you rely on dumb luck, that is....

Since 0 is also called "naught", 2000-2009 is called "the naughties".

I would think both answers are correct, like if Alex Trebek checked with the panel... or something... Plus that is sooooooo last decade :roll:
