hidden posts: could've sworn you saw a post yesterday from your friend but can't today? be sure to log in. some posts are visible only to users, other to friends, and sometimes, only to you!
censorship: we here at avalantern aren't particularly fond of unwanted censorship. but if you're tired of seeing naughty words, you can choose to have them "sanitized". check the "censor language" box in your settings!
timezone: move around a lot? avalantern can detect your timezone for you, but if you'd prefer, you can set it in your settings
related posts: be sure to tag your posts! tagging your posts will not only give viewers a good idea of what it's about before they read it, but it will also make "related posts" more accurate. this way, someone reading your last post about pixar's new movie, tagged with pixar, will see a suggestion to read your post from last year about wall-e!
