This was my first forum ever, and it took me a day of monkeying to figure most things out. After that it was pretty easy, though. However, I'm like roughrider and if I'm quite certain I won't mess things up I'm not afraid to press buttons and try things!

I do think a guide would be helpful for those members like me, though. Even older members who are not as computer savvy as my generation and the younger generations could benefit quite a bit from one.. A person can choose to or not to use it..

It took me awhile to figure out how to post, and how to stop getting a stream of e-mails and how to add horses to my barn and have them show up? I also tried quoteing someone and I still don't get it it will say quote but it doesn't put itin the box thing for me? I'm not skilled with computers! lol

I found it pretty easy, but I was on another forum and sort of just transferred my knowledge over.
I did read through some other posts on their question so maybe a sort of introduction thing when you sign up and you can skip if necessory

I figured the basics out pretty quickly and the things like multi quote, posting pictures, putting horses in barn just came from button pushing.

Honestly, if there had have been a "guide" to using the forum when I joined, I would have skipped through it. But that's just the way I am :)
