<Double posting with justice; For the readability of information. Consulted board staff> 2. Getting to know your fellow members
Joining a forum with lots of members can be daunting and you may feel that you will never get to meet and speak to our lovely members. Don't fear- simply click on a member's username to view their profile. Here you can view their interests and find out a little more about them. You never know, you may have a lot in common! You can also leave profile comments. HOWEVER
if you are going into a full blown conversation with someone, please start using PMs as the profile comments system was not designed for on-going chat in mind.
SEE Technical Jargon - How to send a PM (Personal Message.)Adding a friend
Click on the little downwards arrow located near the username and you should then see a list:
(This list can also be seen if you were to click onto the user's profile.) Simply click ADD AS FRIEND
and they will be added to your friends list and appear in your list of friends on your profile page.
Don't be worried if you leave a comment or add a friend, and it/they haven't been added straight away; some people choose to approve the message or the friend add before it shows up on your/their profile page. You will get a pop-up message informing you if a comment or friend add is pending approval.
