    How To Post on This Forum

    Go to this link: General Discussion

    Be sure to log in with your User ID and Password (top right of this page where it says Login).

    To create a new discussion thread with a new topic: scroll right to bottom of the first page of discussion threads, where you will find a form to add a subject header (in the Topic box) and the body of your post. Then, click Submit to create a new discussion thread. Your new discussion will appear as the most recent discussion right under the orange announcement threads until the next new discussion thread is created. Topics are listed in “most recent” dated order.

    To reply to an existing discussion thread, open the discussion thread of interest by clicking on the subject, then scroll to the very bottom of the page, under all other replies from other posters, to find a post submission form. Write your discussion reply and then click submit. Your reply will bring that discussion thread to the top of the page, under the orange announcement threads.

When you change any of the settings, ensure you click on ‘save changes’ before exiting.

    To Send a Private Message (PM) to another forum User

    You can either click on that person’s User ID on an existing post, or, if you know that person’s User ID, go to your Message Box system by clicking on your name/avatar pic in the lower right hand corner of this page and select Messages. Then select Compose, type in the person’s User ID, create a subject line, write your message under the your subject line, and then click Send Message to send your PM. The other User will be notified by automated email of a new PM. Do not check the “Notice to all Users” box, because this function will send your PM to all forum users.
