Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.

|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|
|3||3||All||3 levels / all levels (all postings)|
I decided it would probably be faster to just pull up the code and check myself than to get an answer here. The answer to my question was that yes, you *do* need to specify all that stuff along with confining to a volume - the confine just tells it to check if the point is in the volume after it is generated, and generates a new point if it is not. So, with source confinement, you don't have to get your specifications *exact*, so long as they cover the whole volume you actually want to generate points in.
While checking this, however, another question arose. At a glance, it looked like cylindrical volume sources were required to be parallel to the z-axis. Is this correct?
