This whole system is called a "Forum". "Bulletin Board" or "Board" is often used the same as forum. On the main page there are "Categories" listed. On this board there are three categories (as of 3/29/06), they are: Board Info, General Discussion and Events. Within the categories are "Topics" and within the topics are posts. You can create a new topic or reply to a post in an existing topic.

There are just a few topics in the Board Info category. You can't reply or start a new topic here because the category has been "locked". There's not much discussion over here. If you have a question about the way this system works, put it in General Discussion. It will be answered and possibly moved to Board Rules for others to see.

When you start a new topic, keep the title short and to the point. You can go into all the detail you want in the body of the first post.

You already know a little, otherwise you wouldn't have gotten this far. To read something, you simply click on the title of what you're interested in. Many things here on the board work that way. If you point at it with your mouse and the arrow becomes a hand, then you can click on it and something will probably happen.

Enjoy,

Tom
