Commands and Pages

At the top of each page is a set of buttons:

[Conference pages] have additional buttons:

[Change Name]

[Catch Up]

[See Recent]

[Topic pages] have additional buttons too:

Forgetting a topic makes it disappear for you.
Freezing a topic makes it read-only.
Retire makes a topic invisible to everyone.
A link back to the conference page.

[Response pages] also have more buttons:

A hidden response is not visible in topic-display pages, but clicking on the single-response link shows the text.
The response gets overwritten with junk, making it permanently unavailable.
A link back to the topic page.
A link back to the conference page.

Finally, hosts get a [Host] button on the conference page, which lets them change their banner message and user-list; and [Link], [Retitle], and [Kill] buttons on the topic pages, which let them link topics between conferences, change their titles, or delete them; and system administrators get an [Admin] button which lets them do various administrative tasks such as changing the system's appearance, making new conferences, and deleting users.
