Log in as soon as you see the board.
Set up your profile if you haven't yet (just click on a post
and you'll see the link at the bottom, is one way)
You can choose an image for your profile or follow the
directions to put a picture from your computer.
AND most helpful to me.....before you start
reading posts, click on the OUTLINE VIEW...so that
you can see all the replies to posts, etc.
Don't worry...it does get easier the more you use this!
