How To Post

If you've never used an Internet forum before, we've tried very hard to make the process easy and enjoyable. There are two ways to enjoy the forums - as a reader or as an active participant.

If you simply want to read some of the thousands of poems posted in the forum, all you'll ever need to do is point and click. The navigation is fairly simple, and we suspect you'll have little difficulty finding your way around. The forums are divided into many sections, some for specific types of poetry, some for discussion. Simply click on the name of a forum to enter and see a list of its contents.

If you want to become an active participant in the forums, posting comments on the poetry or posting your own poems, then you will need to Register as a new member. Hey, it's not as bad as it sounds. Simply look for a link on the first page of the forums that says "How To Join" and click it. Answer a few simple questions, including supplying a User Name and Email address. You don't have to use your real name, but you do have to supply a valid password (though you can also select to have the email address hidden from other viewers - we take privacy very seriously at Passions).

Once you've registered, you are then a Member and can post in most of the forums. To reply to an existing message, look for the small icon that says "Post Reply." That will take you to a form where you can enter your User Name, password, and comments. Your reply will become a part of the original message, forming what's called a thread.

If you'd like to start a new thread, by starting a discussion or posting a poem, look for the icon that says "Post New Topic." This will, again, take you to a form where you enter your User Name, password, and the text of your topic. It's really not any more difficult than that!
