Going to Post this here so I can find it again if I need it.
How to find a user on DB
Go up to MY STUFF Click on Watch List Click on Watched Users Click on Edit Watched Users Click on Add a user to list Type in user - "Never Give UP" Select her as a watched user. Click on her name Click on show all posts. Click on Topics
Since I seem to be using this thread for helpful hints about using the DB forum, here is another tidbit.
If you are reading someones posts, using the SHOW POSTS function. And they have a lot of posts, you may want to go to a certain page of the listing. So in the bottom right corner it say pages 1-xxx Then there is a black downward facing arrow. If you click on that arrow then you can enter a page number.
Took me about 2 years to figure that out.
Also the forum defaults can be changed to put more or less posts on a page.
Or you can change what is displayed to look at older posts.
There is a lot of information here but it takes some work to find it all.
Hi d mod, I started my initial thread (H is back in Replay after a brief period of sanity) this past Sunday. I know it takes you some time to plow thru all the posts of folks under moderation, but I'm starting to wonder if mine was lost somehow. Should I repost it or wait longer? Thanks Linda M

Perhaps more for those who have been at this a little while and thinking that DB is not working for them or wondering WHY it seems not to be working, but also for newbies to help them understand the pitfalls of not doing the work:
