Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven鈥檛, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, 鈥楽earch鈥 is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the 鈥楴ew members introduce yourself here鈥 section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click 鈥榚dit鈥, click on the 鈥榩aper clip鈥 or 鈥榓dvanced鈥 and/or 鈥榤anage attachments鈥 then 鈥榗hoose file鈥 then 鈥榰pload鈥 and 鈥榮ubmit鈥! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to 鈥榣ike鈥 or thank鈥 someone鈥檚 comments? Use the 鈥榣ike鈥 button to the right or the 鈥楾hanks鈥 button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under 鈥榪uick links鈥 when you leave.
