Are you new to the forum life?

  • There are also descriptions underneath each forum title. These tell you what is discussed in that thread. Please check those before starting your topic.

Sub-Forums or Threads: These are forums or threads that on inside another forum or thread. For example, In the General Thread located under The Library category, there is a sub-forum: Bulletin Board.

Spoilers: If your post is going to contain something that you think will spoil a part of a book for members who have yet to read it, you will write your post then highlight the part that is the spoiler then click Other (located with all the other buttons next to the Capital 'A'). Since this is a book forum, you will use this a lot. Smile Also use this if you have a photo you want to share that stretches the forum.

Portal: The portal is like a homepage for the site. It shows the top posters, the newest topics, who's online, a poll, the latest topics, and the topics in the category: 'The Forum.' (This is under construction. Smile )

F.A.Q: Located at the top of the page after 'Home' and 'Search.' This is where common questions about the forum in general are. Check there before asking a mod or admin.

Search: If you are trying to find a certain topic, or if you want to see if I topic already exists, type in a keyword in the search and it will tell you if there are any topics containing your keyword. You can choose if you want to see the results in topic form or post form. Please use this before posting a topic.

Memberlist: Do you want to see all the users? This is where you can see them. All users are listed there.

Usergroups: These are for members who have special permissions. The admins have a group and the mods have a group. Later on, more groups may be added.
