Aard features a board system that was created by Erwin S. Andreasen, 4u2abc.dk, aka Phunk, and is freely available. This board system was modified for clans and helpers, and security was added by Lasher.
The system is very simple to use, and all players should keep up on at least the Personal, MUDInfo, and Announce boards.
board: Lists unread notes on subscribed boards.
board <name or number>: Switches to board <name / number>.
board all: Lists note counts on all subscribed boards.
General info about these commands:
board command lists and navigates through Aardwolf's note/forum system.
It is used in combination with the
note command (see help notes) to read
notes sorted by content. You may choose to filter this content with the
subscribe command- see help subscribe.
board will list any subscribed boards with unread notes, along
with the board number, name, and description of the board's contents. You
can switch to any board by typing
board <number> or
board <name in full>,

Note Commands and Reading the Boards:
Ok, now you've subscribed to all the boards you want, and you want to know how to check the notes on them. Well, you can either just type
note a bunch of times and read each unread note as it's presented (this way the system changes the boards for you as you finish reading all the unread notes in each subscribed board), or you can type
board <Pick a board>,
note list to see all the notes on a board (the ones marked with an asterisk (*) are unread notes, and choose which ones to read with
note read <number>.
Basic syntax and info:
|note||Reads next note.|
|note read <number> | "again"||Reads a certain note.|
|note reply <number>||Reply to a certain note.|
|note reply||Reply to last note you read.|
|note from <person>||List notes from a specific person. ie. 'note from imm' will show notes from all immortals.|
|note to <person>||List notes to a specific person.|
|note subject <text>||Shows all notes with <text> in subject.|
|note remove <number>||Removes a note written by you.|
|note list [number]||Shows up to number notes.|
|note unread||Shows note headers unread.|
|note reset <number>||Resets your "last read" pointer.|
|note write [to list]||Posts a note, automatically setting To: field to 'to list' if present.|
|note forward <note#> <to list>||Forward a note to others.|
|note repost <note#> <board>||Reposts your note to a different board.|
|note catchup||Marks all notes in this board read.|
|note catchup all||Marks all notes in all boards except announce and personal as read.|
These commands are used for the new note system. Instead of just one
board, there are several, each with its special purpose. See help forum
and help subscribe for information on the board system itself.
