If you are trying to test out html tags or something to see if it'll work properly, the best thing to do is to send yourself a message. This way you don't have to start a thread or post on it, and no one but you can see it (click on your name on the Online list, or somewhere else. This'll open up your profile. On the bottom you can send yourself a message. Try it there.)
