Welcome to the new format
Welcome to the new format! I know it is very different and it will take some time to get used to. Myself I am not thrilled but am learning my way around. As you can see there are two folders, one for General Discussions and one for Off-Topic. More may be added at some point, any suggestions you may have feel free to post them here. You will be able to see how many people post to this discussion and you can start a new discussion. It is going to take some time to get used to this and I am still learning as well so we'll figure it out together! Yes it is going to be a bit bumpy in the beginning but I am sure we will all figure this out.
One thing you all can do is update your profiles, there are more options and info you can put in them. Play around and see how the new format works. One great feature is that you can edit your post after it is posted. I know how often I misspell something. There is also an How do I ... box below you can click on to help answer any questions.
