This forum is designed to be an organised way to chat and share.
Of course, this can be quite confusing to someone who is not used to this layout. But believe me, once you figured it out you will be posting threads, responding to posts and sharing away like a Giselle.
There are many icons on this forum, that indicate changes have happened.
Please click the image above to see an enlarged view.
The icons, 'announcement' means that that subject has been announced, and will be at the top of every subject. This is so everyone gets a chance to see it.
Sticky is when you see a little pin icon, this means the subject won't move down the list of subjects in the same board. When someone posts a new reply in any subject/thread the subject/thread will move up the list. Just like in the Etsy teams and forums.
(Only moderators have this power to announce subjects and to sticky them.)
The forum is laid out like this:
CATEGORY - BOARD - SUBJECT.
What you see first is the CATEGORY.
Each CATEGORY has a name, for example, 'forum rules.' Within the CATEGORY 'forum rules' you will see BOARDS. These BOARDS are, 'about the forum,' 'forum instructions' and 'forum rules and guidelines.' When you click on any of these BOARDS, you will now see the SUBJECTS. These are all the threads that have been posted by members about the subject. The forum is laid out like this so it keeps organised and you do not have to keep searching for topics and threads that you are interested in.
When you scroll down the page on a thread that has more than one pages of replies, the page counter follows YOU, so you don't have to keep scrolling to the top to click the next page.
