How To Post Your First Message

Recommended Posts

Not a daft question if you aren't familiar with the Internet to start with!

Somebody PM'd me (a good first-stab in itself!) to ask. Here's what I replied:



I am a new member who has still to work out how to post my initial open message. .... Please advise how I proceed.



Hi ??????!

Very very simple.

Click on the Introduce Yourself forum. Click on the New Topic button up top left on the list of threads. Put a topic title in the Title box and type your message in the big text box. Then scroll down a way and hit the Post New Topic button right at the bottom. Ignore everything else it's just eye candy! Your new thread will appear at the top of the treads list for that particular forum.

The main thing is to experiment. Don't worry about messing up, the moderators will take care of any clean-up for you. Also you can edit your own posts at any time simply by clicking on the Edit Post button underneath it, making your corrections in the message box, and then clicking on the finish edit button to upload the change.


Would that do it for you, or have I not made it clear enough somewhere?

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
