Threads are topic discussions and a great way to interact with other members. Starting a new thread is very easy and detailed below. Create a New Thread Find and click the relevant forum for your new thread. For example if you are new and would like to introduce yourself it will go inside the New Members Introduce Yourself forum.Your post may be moved if it is in the wrong forum or removed if it breaks any rules. Find the "Post New Thread" button located on the top right corner of forums you are allowed to post in. Click the button and you will be taken to a form to create your new thread. If there is no option to post it may require permissions you do not have or you are not logged in. Fill in the form with the minimum of a Title, which should pertain to the point of the new topic, and a Message, which will go into detail and begin the discussion of the new topic. You may optionally add photos, links, attachments, and polls to enhance your discussion. Once you are satisfied with your draft, you may submit the topic. Some of the these options may not be available to you in all forums. Replies allow members to participate and continue discussions on existing threads. Replying is as easy as creating a new thread. Quoting posts allows other members to see that you are directly speaking to or referencing to a post within the thread and not just the post prior to yours or the original post. Reply to a Thread At the bottom of each thread discussion is a box to write a reply and continue the discussion. You may optionally add photos, links, attachments, and polls to enhance your discussion. Reply with Quote(s) The top right of each individual post has an option to "Reply". Clicking the "Reply" will create a quote in your reply box at the bottom of the page. Be sure to write your reply outside of the Code: [QUOTE][/QUOTE] bbcode tags. If you write inside the tags it will be hard to discern your reply from the original quote. Quoting any post may result in alerting that poster that you've replied to them (this option to be alerted may be turned off in their account settings). You may reply to multiple posts within each message you create. Option to reply is only available to logged in members. Reply with Multiple Quotes The top right of each individual post has an option to "Quote+". Clicking "Quote+" will add that post to a list of quotes on that topic. Scroll down to the bottom of the thread to your message box. Click the option to "Insert Quotes..." found at the bottom of the thread. You may rearrange or remove the quotes before inserting them into your post. Click "Quote These Messages" to insert all the messages you've quoted.
