Welcome to AO :wave:
Below is a step by step guide as to how to post your first message or 'thread' on the forum!
From the 'Home' screen, click on the 'Forums' button
Scroll down to the 'Newbie Area' and click on the 'Introduce Yourself' button.
Click on the 'New Thread' button.....
.....which opens up this screen.
Type a title for your thread (you can not add smilies to your title) and type your introduction in the main box.
PLEASE DO NOT ASK TECHNICAL QUESTIONS: save these for the Technical Section. Just say hello and tell us a bit about yourself
Click on any smilies to add them into your text.
....click on the 'Submit Thread' button.
That's all there is to it
You can add a 'Post Icon' to accompany your thread if you wish - just choose one from above the Submit button
If you get stuck ask any member of staff - the Regional Reps are coloured green and the Moderators, like me, are coloured red.
Hope this helps
