my name is abi, and i am 18. welcome to the forum.

i think what you will want information on is ettiquette, rather than actual working of the forum. in general, if you are polite and sensible, you wil have no problems. unless you are really out of line, for example directly and severely insulting an individual, there is unlikley to be a problem. also, check the rules you agreed to when you signed up.

other suggestions i can give you are;
i suggest you keep a note of users who are called by thier real life name, but have a different username displayed, for example, parnassus is vicky.
i find it is a good idea to put posts in word and use spellchecker before posting.
dont be afraid to ask for help, i will help if you ask, and there are very few people here who would not be willing to help where they can. if you need, you are welcome tp PM (personal message) me (the button marked PM at the bottom an individual post) or contact me on facebook (i use the name abby hpokins there) or MSN (use the button next to the PM button).
i have not found 1 unpleasant person here, and if you want help, ask for it.

the forum is generally quite siimple to work, and im sure you understand it as you have already posted here, but il put instructions here anyway.
to read a post-
find the home or index page
select a category to read a post from
click on this category title
choose the post you want to read, and click on the title

to sort posts, you can either go from the index/home page as i described above, or you can sort posts and see all the new posts in one go. to do this, at the upper right hand side of the page, there is a button called "viiew new posts". this is what i use. you also have other options along the top of the page, just above the list of sub headings.

to reply to a post -
find the thread (group of posts) you want to reply to
go to the very bottom of the page. you may need to go the last page of awnsers if the topic is a very hot (active/long) one.
click on the post reply buton near the left side of the screen below all the other posts
write your reply
click on the submit button

to start a new thread/topic-
go to the bottom of a thread that is in the category you want to post in, and click the button next to the post reply button, and post similarly to replying.
go to the bottom or top of the category you want to post in, and click the same button.

if you need anything,feel free to ask me. if i can help i will.
the way i see it, dyspraxia is an extra hurdle in every race i run, but that extra hurdle, is just extra exercise, so in the end, i will come through stronger.
