Posting & Reading Messages

How do I post a new message?
When inside of a forum, clicking on 'Post New Topic' will allow you to post a new topic. You need to fill in your information, a topic and a message, and then click on the 'Post New Topic' button.

Can I reply to a message?
Yes, this is done the same as posting a new one, except that you must be in a topic and you need to click 'Post Reply' instead of 'Post New Topic'.

Is it possible to delete a message?
Yes, click the 'Edit' button on one of your own topics, select the '! Delete this message !' check box, and then click 'Edit Post'. You cannot delete a post if it is the first post in the thread.

How do I edit one of my posts?
You can edit a post by clicking on the 'Edit Post' button above your message. You can only edit your own posts and sometimes this feature is disabled.

Can I insert an attachment?
Yes, you can insert an attachment with any of your posts. The file size of the attachment must be under 1 megabyte for it to be accepted. You can attach a file on the New Post and Post Reply pages with the upload field.

What are smilies?
Smilies are the little faces to the right of the message textbox. They display graphical faces instead of simply a :).
Here is a list of current supported smilies:

How can I create and vote in polls?
You can create a poll by visiting the forum you want to post the poll in and click on 'New Poll'. The screen following after you click the button is just like a normal new thread page but has an extra box for poll answers. You should enter one answer per line.

You can vote on polls in threads by visiting the thread with the poll in it, selecting the option you want to vote for, and then clicking the submit button. You can only vote on a poll once--so once you vote, you cannot change your mind.
