ABOUT FORUMS - FOR NEWBIES
You can also click on "Forum" at the top of this page. This takes you to a list of all the forums on this site. Select the forum which is appropriate to your topic (or maybe "Affiliate Hangout", if no other seems right). Click on that forum name, then scroll down to the green button to start you own forum "Thread".It works like this
" are made of "Threads
" started by one user (the "Thread Author
After a Thread is started it may get one or more "Posts" called "Replies
"Replies" are responses from other users of the forum to the particular Thread and also responses by the Thread Author to the Replies of others.
Each "Forum" here is about one "Topic
". All the Forums together are referred to as the "Affilorama Forum", but it's actually a whole set of forums.
The forums you see and can access depend on your member status. For example, "Affiloblueprint version 3" (AB3) members may access certain forums about Affiloblueprint topics which non-AB3 members can not - as one of the advantages of purchasing a membership in the AB3 course.
Forums always have formal or informal "rules of etiquette" (sometimes called "Netiquette") and behavior. The formal ones are usually written in a "Sticky
" thread in one forum on a site. A "Sticky thread" is one which is made permanent. Informal rules of etiquette are learned over time - but are mostly common sense and common courtesy.Abbreviations
are also common, to cut down on the amount of typing required, like: AFAIK
("As far as I know")IMHO
("In my humble opinion")BTW
("By the way") LOL
("laughing Out Loud")
... and so on.
Hope this helps those new to forums...
