Forums can be a bit daunting for those who haven't used them so much before.
Remember, that this forum, is more of a niche group in this region(timezone GMT+7 to +12), not a global Juggernaut forum as such. So, PLEASE... just be a part of the family.. and don't feel bad if you make any mistakes etc. The Admins (myself and SABorn at the moment) can help you out and clean up any mistakes you might make(yes, we've all made them also!). If you've made a boo-boo or posted to the wrong area etc.. then just drop us a line via PM or email.
There is also THIS VIDEO
which I just watched and it is an excellent resource for people a little unsure about forum etiquette etc.
PM's ..? PM's are ' Private Message - think of it like an email system but only within the board. When I first came across PM's I though they were useless as I could just list my email and people could reach me there? - well with PM's you can keep your identity to yourself, protect your email address and still be very reachable. You can configure the system to send a notification to your email address when you have a PM waiting for you or of someone has replied to a thread you started etc.
When you get the hang of the forum you'll find it very handy - after all, it;s a way where we can all come together and share our ideas and help each other out.
I guess the one thing I have learnt with electronic communication over time is that we all interpret the written word in such different ways. I highly encourage you to pick up the phone and say hello to the people you chat with.. as SABorn and I do now.. only problem is we talk for ages!
