its time to number the threads, so that if we want to refer someone to a previous discussion, we can say Go to thread number nnnn, rather than have to search for the text of the thread subject thru all the threads. good idea??

Oh, ok thanks Chris.

I don't think the UBB software can handle the specific display of thread numbers. But you can always link directly to any thread. For example: HERE'S A THREAD. You do this by using the URL UBB tag and the URL of the specific thread (see "instant UBB code" when composing a post).

NOTE: The thread number is actually the last part of the thread's URL ("t=").

Hope that helps.
