I'm always confused when I see threads like this. If you can make this thread and get it to post, then you figured out how to post.
Are we missing something?

I think they posted to their profile and didn't realize you need to click on forums, find your applicable section, and then click on post new thread to start your individual topic? I may be wrong but that's what it looks like>

How do i do it myslef i can reply but dnt know how to do a question myself?

First find the forum area in which you want to post in, click on create new thread in the upper right side of your screen, title your thread, type away, and click on post new thread in the bottom ride side of your screen.

When i first signed on I also had trouble figuring it out. It's not that the format here is not user friendly but I guess for some of us who are technology challenged like myself, those things are NOT that obvious. I wonder if @JoesMum could chime in. She has a gift of translating those things to us in a way that's easy to understand... i know! I am a moron when it comes to technology... but... I'm an expert in some other things, so it's ok:)

I had problems too at first. Actually, I've got everyone beat, if I don't post a question for a long time then when I need to post a question I forget how and have to learn all over again... Lol

I think a lot of the initial confusion comes from not being able to post when you are reading a thread. Most of us when new are reading through threads that catch our attention and primarily from the "new posts" section. When there, there are no options anywhere to create a new thread. I don't think it's intuitive to know you have to go to a specific forum section, without opening a thread, in order to see the create thread option.
