Hi Ariel (a.k.a. Ariebella,) welcome to the board!!
You can spell Chinese??!! That's cool!! Nice to have you with us!!
I see you are new on "forum posting"... let's see...
First thing to do is.. go and read our "forum rules and guides" threads:
The Forum Rules (MUST READ for all newcomers,) and
The Beginnerīs Guide to Forum Decorum
They are full of useful infomation on posting on our board!!
We have a wide variety of FMA (that's how we often call "FullMetal Alchemist" here) and non-FMA forums, and hope you'll enjoy posting on many of them!! You can find links to our various forums on our discussion forums home page.
I'd love to see your posts on your favorite FMA characters, in our FMA character discussion (both FMA manga and anime) forum!! Or, if you like non-FMA anime or manga also, we have forums for Non-FMA anime and Non-FMA manga, too.
We also have General music forum for non-FMA music discussions, and FMA music forum.
Or, you may find threads for your favorite TV shows, or movies, in our General video forum!!
Spam Central has many game threads and other fun threads.
Or, if you like reading, some of the fanfics in our Fanfics forum might interest you??
Also, if you like to find someone to talk to, check out our Instant Messaging thread.
Or, if you like to be someone's forum family on our board, post on our Forum family thread.
If you're looking for some nice FMA avatar pics (that's the picture under your forum name), you may like to check out our Gallery!!
Or, if you like to have some of our members to make you a custome-made signature pic (that's the picture some poeple have at the bottom of their post), check out some of "sig shop" threads, and post on the thread of the "sig designer" you like in our Fanworks forum!!
BTW (by the way,) if you want to post a reply WITHOUT someone's quote showing up on your post, try using the "ADDREPLY" button at the bottom of the page, and NOT ""REPLY" button on the right side of the page.
Unless, of course, if you want to reply to a particular post and include some of the quote from that post in your reply. In that case, usually, it is a good idea to reply to RECENT posts on the thread, and often, NOT from the begining part of the thread, if they are very old, like, two years old (and, hence, often irrevalant by now)!!
To bring up most RECENT discussions on the thread, when you are clicking on the thread, click on "Last Post by" on the right side, or, click on the largest page number for the thread (that will the far right on the list of page numbers for the thread).
If you have any more questions on posting on our board, feel free to post here and ask us!!
We'd love to help you becoming a part of our big forum family!!
Hope you're going to have a great time on our board!!
