Discussion Board Features
You can be creative with your posts by using different colors, quoting from other people's posts, and adding polls, pictures, and videos. When creating a topic, point your mouse to the various icons to see what they do. You can add a picture by clicking "add file" by the Attachments field.
When you reply to a topic, the last few posts show up below the area where you write your post, so scroll down to see them while you are writing. If you reply to a reply, your response will still show up at the very bottom of the topic, not right under the reply.
If you are browsing a category, you can point your mouse to the topic titles to read the first part of the topic without clicking on it.Updating Your Profile
To change your profile, go to the Profile tab and click "Edit." Here are several things you can do there:
Subscribing to Posts
- Change Username, Password, and E-mail (these blanks show up when you click on "Edit"). The changes will apply throughout the Guide site. Your full name and e-mail address will not be visible to other users.
- Change Gender and Birthdate (Click on "Profile Information")
- Add Avatar/Profile Picture (Click on "Avatar Image") You may select any image on that page. If you would like to submit a more personalized avatar for approval, send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Avatar size should be 125 x 125 pixels. We will upload it for you (if it is approved!). Then follow the directions above to add it to your profile.
- Prevent People From Seeing That You Are Online (Click "Forum Settings" and change "Show Online" to "No")
If you subscribe to a post (either by checking the box when you make the post or by clicking the Subscribe button on a topic), you will be notified by e-mail when other people reply to the topic. Since you created your CyberClub account using your parent's e-mail address, those notifications will go to your parent unless you change your address to your personal e-mail (if you have one) as described above.
