Completely new to being a member of a forum?
No worries, just read through this easy how-to so you can be on your way to posting!

Read through the forum's rules.
Rules can be found in every section of the forum. (here) http://etsy.forumotion.net/t2-tef-rules
There's nothing worse then accidentally breaking some rules and getting yourself banned from the site.

Fill out the registration form
and provide some information in order to become a member of the internet forum.

On the front page,
you should see a list full of sections, usually called "forums".
These should lead to a list of relevant forum topics, and possibly even more sub-forums.

Within one of these "forums",
you should see a list of forum topics, each with a thread name and sometimes with a description and "icon".

Start a "Hi, I'm new" topic if there is a section for doing so. Get to introduce yourself.

When you first begin to post, be polite. If you're respectful to older members, you will earn some respect yourself in due time. You will probably feel intimidated by veteran users at first; this is normal.

Be very thoughtful about your posts, and follow all of the rules as you advance in ranks and your reputation becomes better.

You should read some of the posts in a forum before joining. Important posts with guidelines will often be "stuck" to the top of the page for easy finding. If you don't like what you are seeing, save yourself the trouble and don't join.

If you are a good member, you could be upgraded to a moderator, or get a better ranking.
