To post a new topic in a forum, click the relevant button on either the forum or topic screens, or just scroll to the bottom. You may need to register before you can post a message. A list of your permissions in each forum is available at the bottom of the forum and topic screens. Example: You can post new topics, You can vote in polls, etc.

Unless you are an administrator or moderator, you can only edit or delete your own posts. You can edit a post by clicking the edit button for the relevant post, sometimes for only a limited time after the post was made. If someone has already replied to the post, you will find a small piece of text output below the post when you return to the topic which lists the number of times you edited it along with the date and time. This will only appear if someone has made a reply; it will not appear if a moderator or administrator edited the post, though they may leave a note as to why they’ve edited the post at their own discretion. Please note that normal users cannot delete a post once someone has replied.

To add a signature to a post you must first create one via your profile page. Once created, you can check the Attach a signature box on the posting form to add your signature. You can also add a signature by default to all your posts by checking the appropriate radio button in your profile. If you do so, you can still prevent a signature being added to individual posts by un-checking the add signature box within the posting form.

When posting a new topic or editing the first post of a topic, click the "New Poll”  button next to the "New Thread"
button; if you cannot see this, you do not have appropriate permissions to create polls. Enter a title and at least two options in the appropriate fields, making sure each option is on a separate line in the text area. You can also set the number of options users may select during voting under "Enable possibility to choose several answers”, a time limit in days for the poll (0 for infinite duration) and lastly the option to have it be a poll only.

The limit for poll options is set by the website administrator; which is 10 options. There is no way to increase this currently.

As with posts, polls can only be edited by the original poster, a moderator or an administrator. To edit a poll, click to edit the first post in the topic; this always has the poll associated with it. If no one has cast a vote, users can delete the poll or edit any poll option. However, if members have already placed votes, only moderators or administrators can edit or delete it. This prevents the poll’s options from being changed mid-way through a poll.

Some forums may be limited to certain users or groups. To view, read, post or perform another action you may need special permissions. Contact a moderator or site administrator to grant you access with a code that may change at any time.

Attachment permissions are granted on a per forum, per group, or per user basis. The site administrator may not have allowed attachments to be added for the specific forum you are posting in, or perhaps only certain groups can post attachments. Contact the site administrator if you are unsure about why you are unable to add attachments.

The site administrator has their own set of rules for the site. If you have broken a rule, you may be issued a warning or reproof. Please note that this is the site administrator’s decision. Contact the site administrator if you are unsure about why you were issued a warning/reproof.

If the site administrator has allowed it, you should see a button for reporting posts under the post you wish to report. Clicking this will walk you through the steps necessary to report the post.

The siteadministrator may have decided that posts in the forum you are posting to require review before submission. It is also possible that the administrator has placed you in a group of users whose posts require review before submission. Please contact the site administrator for further details.

It is possible to bump the topic simply by replying to it, however, be sure to follow the forum rules when doing so.
