Many new to the computer find this message board different than other parrot message boards.
Here is a simple graphic to help you navigate this board:
Clicking on the left side shows you all the topics that have been posted that day or week.
Clicking on the right side only shows you the last post in that topic, and will show you nothing else. So if you want to see all the topics, always click on the forums on the left. Also, to START a new topic always click on the LEFT as shown above and then click NEW TOPIC in the upper right hand corner.
If you start a topic and then later have an update to that topic... please add the update to your ORIGINAL topic. Dont start a new topic with your update because it's very confusing.
Example: You get a new bird and you tell us about it. Weeks later you want to tell us more about this same bird. Dont start a new topic. Find your orginal topic post and add your new information to it. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS MESSAGE BOARD HAS A GREAT SEARCH ENGINE AT THE TOP RIGHT. PLEASE USE IT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE TO SAVE ASKING THE SAME QUESTIONS OVER AND OVER. ALSO USE THE "Before You Ask A Question, See If It's Already Been Answered HERE" AT THE TOP OF THE MAIN PAGE WHERE POSSIBLE.
We will offer avatars. An avatar is an image to represent you here on the messageboard. You see my avatar in the top left of this page. Its a photo, but you can use any graphic you like. Keep one thing in mind: No image can be larger than 3,400 bytes. This means that if you dont know how to make a small photo, get someone to show you. We also have stock avatars here for you to choose from. You will find these in your Profile area. If you have any questions, post them in the Just Chat forum only.
A lot of people dont realize that they can be notified by e-mail when someone responds to their post. If you would like this feature, simply place a check on the box located underneath your post and you will be notified when you get a response.
