  • How do I post to the Message Boards?

To create a post on the Message Boards:
  1. Roll your mouse over the "Community" tab near the top of the screen.
  2. Click on "Message Boards."
  3. You'll now see a list of Message Board forums that you may post on.
  4. Click on any of the Message Board forums that interests you. (The "Introduce Yourself" forum is a great place to get started.)
  5. Click on "Create a New Topic."
  6. Type a title in the box next to the "Topic" heading.
  7. Type your message in the box below the "Message" heading.
  8. Once you have completed your message, click on "Post Message."
Note: If you do not want to receive an email when someone replies, before posting your message, uncheck the "I want an email to be sent to me when anyone replies to this topic," which is just below the message box.
