For those of you who asked:

How To View The Shots That Are Posted
1. Highlight everything from and including the words START and END
2. Right click on the highlighted text and left click on Copy
3. Go to the WEI Table http://endeavor.med.nyu.edu/~wei/pool/pooltable2.html
4. Left click on their <font color="green">green</font color> Paste button
5. Voila! Now you can see what we see!

To Create Your Own Shot For Us To See
1. Go to the WEI Table
2. Arrange the balls to set up your shot. You have 15 balls, a large cue ball which you can move the little black dot in it to show us the point of contact, letters A-D to show us in which order you're hitting the balls, and arrows to show the path. You have 2 arrows that are segmented and you can use those for masse shots.
3. Left click on their <font color="red">red</font color> Copy button.
4. Come back to the CCB where you're composing your post. In the Post area, right click and then left click on Paste.
5. Voila! You've just posted a "weird" code thingy too!

When someone illustrates a shot on the Wei table it would be nice if they would include the link to the RSB webpage on their post. The extra two or three clicks it takes them will save a lot of time for the hundred or more people who read thier post. It comes down to thinking about your audience when you present some information.

I have the WEI Table as a favorite and I always have it open, but that's not a bad idea.

Right on target Tom. I have missed on looking up a lot of shots posted here because I didn't know how to use the WEI table.

I also take this opportunity to thank Wendy for posting the information.

Anyone can download the WEI table and use it off line, to create your table layouts.

There is this site that collects wei table shots. Somewhat interesting.
