Posting new threads and/or replying to existing threads is a snap once you know what buttons to look for on the site. You do need a minimum number of posts to access and post to some sections of the forums, but the majority of our forum sections are available to all users regardless of post count. You will eventually gain access to all forum sections through simply participating on the boards and adding value to the community.


How to CREATE A NEW THREAD: Let's start by creating a new member introduction thread. Start by opening the Member Introduction section and clicking the 'new thread' button at the top right of the list of threads (see image below). Then just write your thread title and content and submit your thread.

How to REPLY TO AN EXISTING THREAD: You can reply to an existing thread in much the same way - just look for the 'post reply' link at the top and bottom of the thread itself (either one will do the trick, see image below) - fill in your reply, hit 'submit' and voila, you've posted to an existing thread! Give it a try - go to the Member Introduction section, find another new member's thread, click on it to open it, and then click 'post reply' - write them a quick little welcome note and submit your post.

Finding conversations on the boards you have comments, questions, or additional information to add to; introducing yourself; sharing resources; and greeting other new members are all great ways to contribute to the community AND gain some of the necessary post count for access to the special features on the boards. Just be sure to follow the Community Terms of Service when posting.

The instructions provided above will work in all forum sections the same way.
