Our Discussion Forums Explained
If you are already familiar with phpBB Bulletin Board chat, then you do not need to read through this section - skip the intro and go straight to the Boards.
If you are new to this, don't fret, there is nothing difficult to worry about! Bulletin Boards, or forum chat, are a clever way of exchanging information and conversation one post at a time. Ours is based on the popular phpBB software used all over the world in countless websites. It is not like a live internet chat, but, you do, in a way, engage in conversation. If you have a problem or a question about something, simply ask, and await for replies from strangers willing to help. Get it off your chest; tell everyone about your event; share your experiences; - anything and everything can be 'talked' about here.
You do not have to be a registered member to view the content on the boards. However, you do have to sign up to actively get involved. This involves an easy registration process that just takes less than 2 minutes to complete. Privacy is a priority, so you can choose a nickname instead of your real name if you wish - no one will be any wiser! You need an e-mail address to verify the integrity of your new account: a confirmation link will be sent to your e-mail address, where all you have to do is click it to activate your account.
Every page also has the main menu at the top, like what you see here. For helpful tips, click on 'FAQ'. You can add optional personal information like where you are from, your hobbies, what your career is, and so on. To do that, click on 'Profile'. To start a topic, or reply to one, the buttons are there, and tell you what to do ('New Topic', 'Post Reply', etc). When you are finished browsing, click 'Logout [username]'. It's that simple!
The forum is split into sections to help make it easier to hone in on a particular theme or area of knowledge. If you want to start a new topic, make sure you add it to the section best matching your query. But don't worry, the boards are moderated anyway to ensure everything runs smoothly.
So, after this brief introduction, if you think you want to continue, then click here to go to the forums. Happy Posting!
